It would be like a hug from baby Jesus if Candace Owens’ career was demolished after her recent comments about Hitler. The 29-year-old political farce, who was part of a Trump-bashing site just a few years ago, is saying her comments that went viral yesterday were taken out of context by leftist media. However, her explanation doesn’t make much sense because what she said was seen on video.
In a video yesterday she babbled that Hitler “a homicidal, psychotic maniac” and he “was putting German Jews into concentration camps and murdering — he was a mass murderer.” However, she maintains Hitler wasn’t a nationalist. See her weak explanation below:
In case you missed it, according to BuzzFeed News, 29-year-old said, “When we say nationalism, the first thing people think about, at least in America, is Hitler. He was a national socialist. If Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, okay, fine.”
She continued, “The problem is he wanted, he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize, he wanted everybody to be German, everybody to be speaking German, everybody to look a different way. To me, that’s not nationalism. So in thinking about how it could go bad down the line, I don’t really have an issue with nationalism, I really don’t.”
Even conservative outlets are slamming her. The Washington Examiner wrote, “Knowledge of history matters, especially when it comes to a topic as important as Nazi Germany. Sadly, Owens offered little contrition for her stupid remarks in a follow up video. Explaining what she meant to say, Owens concluded, ‘I stand by my statements.’ Here we see true arrogance and ignorance together: utter confidence that, having now said what she meant to say originally, Owens’ historical analysis is accurate. Note: If you’re going to speak about Hitler in Britain, you need to have knowledge.
Owens doesn’t have knowledge of anything.
She once said the NRA is “the nation’s oldest civil rights organization” and was founded “to train Black Americans to use guns to defend themselves against the Ku Klux Klan, a Democrat terrorist group.”
She blamed the horrifying mail bombs back in October on Democrats, by tweeting then deleting, “I’m going to go ahead and state that there is a 0% chance that these ‘suspicious packages’ were sent out by conservatives. The only thing ‘suspicious’ about these packages is their timing. Caravans, fake bomb threats—these leftists are going ALL OUT for midterms.”
