….and gets some heart-warming help from a Republican.
Some of my eminent colleagues here have watched clips of Candace Owens fighting back against the Democrats, including her powerful defence against a sly, PeeCee defamer named Lieu, during the hearing on hate crimes. Out of general interest and in order to hear more from Candace, I decided to plough through 3 hours of the hearing on YouTube.
An hour and 38 minutes in, Republican Representative Buck of Colorado broke through Democrat propaganda and questioned Candace with evident admiration. Here’s how he began:
Ms Owens, I’m going to address these questions to you, if I may. I don’t know if you’ve seen this, [holding up a file] but it’s a memorandum that the majority Democrats prepared for the committee members and in this memorandum they go through the various witnesses’ names and organisations that they represent, the Anti-Defamation League, the Equal Justice Society, Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights under Law and then we get to you.
Oh my goodness. Candace Owens, Director of Communications at the conservative …. Nobody else is described as progressive or liberal but you are described as a conservative advocacy group for Turning Point USA and a conservative commentator and political activist known for her criticism of Black Lives Matter and the Democrat Party. I think you’ve caused my friends on the left to go to their safe spaces and I’d love to explore with you a little bit of the reasons for that…
Then Representative Buck asks Candace a number of questions which bring a smile to her face. Brought a smile to my face too as the back and forth between the two of them demonstrated the best of America when they cut through lefty PeeCee like the proverbial hot knife through butter.
I’m going to plough through the next two hours of the hearing on the lookout for another gem or two in between the propaganda onslaught from the Democrats.
Meanwhile, here’s Candace and Representative Buck.
Here’s the address to a UK audience by Candace and Charlie of Turning Point. It’s over an hour, but Representative lieu chose to play a half-minute clip of it during the hearing to try to smear Candace as an apologist for Hitler.
And here’s Lieu with his attempted smear. He has the gall to turn to other witnesses without even giving Candace a chance to respond. She gets the chance at 5:30 in, and demolishes him as well as Chairman Nadler, who tries to defend Lieu.
Update April 14:
Candace Owens reminds me of Diamond and Silk, two powerful black American women who also testified before Congress and who also refused to show the slightest respect for sly Democrats with no moral fibre who tried to bring them down.
