CANDACE OWENS DEFENDS HITLER!? I Think Not

Candace Owens

 

 

I have not been able to form an opinion about Candace Owens yet for one reason or another. For the past few days after seeing a viral clip about her response to the subject of Nationalism, again, I do not know how to form a complete opinion about her position. The first thought to come to my mind though would be CONFUSION. But after a few days of turning the issues pertaining to her over in my mind, I have formed one belief. I feel that she is way too young to be put in the spotlight as a spokesperson in politics on the level that she has been elevated. Does she have a support group of elder people in politics? It does not seem so. She is only 29 years old. At any rate, she was put on the hot seat, so-to-speak, recently and she made a comment about Hitler and well, it did not go so well, initially. Some media outlets seem to say, as did the democratic representative of California, that she supported Hitler’s form of Nationalism, but after thinking about this for several days now, I realize that is not at all what she had meant:

One of Trump’s most vocal black supporters seemed to defend Hitler in a recent speech

Owens’s name was trending on Twitter Friday after a clip of her sharing her thoughts on Adolf Hitler went viral. …

 

 

“He was a national socialist. But if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, okay, fine.

The problem is that he wanted, he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize. …

So, media people claimed that she had to sort of ‘retract her statement’, but no, I do not believe so. Some have attempted to frame her to believe that it was okay for Hitler to be a nationalist in Germany, meaning that his tactics to kill millions of Jews to support nationalism was okay. That is so NOT true, that is not what she meant at all. She replied that in actuality, Hitler was a ‘globalist’ hiding under the demise of being a nationalist. If he were a true nationalist, then it would be okay, but he was not. They have manipulated her words completely and then, in my opinion, they are mock her for one reason or another. But then, I also say to myself, why am I upset? I am upset:

 

 

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. …”

 

The comments drew sharp rebuke for their inaccurate portrayal of Hitler’s politics, and for seeming to

suggest that Hitler’s leadership of Germany, including his role in the murder of millions of Jews, LGBT

people and other German minorities, wasn’t really a problem.

That was not at all what she meant! But then, why am I upset about Candace Owens being mocked? She brings confusion due to so many other views that she represents. I googled some other recent comments by her and yes, I absolutely do not agree with a lot of what she has said in other respects. She has spoken out against issues about the late George Floyd, etc., and while I don’t agree with her rants at all, she did speak on facts that I did not hear about and I believe they are important to know about before trial of Derek Chauvin, the police that murdered him. Nevertheless, there are many points that she professes that I do absolutely agree on. Why, though, would she be chosen to be a spokesperson in congress, for the Republicans, etc. at such a young age. It seems obvious to me, anyway, that her beauty plays a role in this choice. But however, this all seems like an age-old practice of exploitation and divide and conquer. She is being exploited. We are being exploited. Anyway, here is the clip:

She is one sick, i.e, mentally ill or as Dr. Bobby Wright put it, exhibiting menticide, piece of work:

 

NAACP leader who defended Candace Owens from racist trolls shocked to learn she’s conservative now

Kanye West’s Trump-supporting muse Candace Owens continued to send shockwaves across the Twitterverse on Friday, attacking former President Barack Obama and challenging John Legend to a public debate.

“Can someone please tell @johnlegend that I openly challenge him to a debate regarding his stance that Trump’s policies have harmed people of color but Obama’s policies didn’t?” Owens tweeted. “He has me blocked since his unstable wife attacked me, but I’d love to publicly debate him.”

Despite her name making national headlines recently, Connecticut NAACP president Scot X. Esdaile hadn’t heard the name Candace Owens for more than a decade prior to this week. Esdaile said he’s having a hard time believing that the woman his organization helped when she was the victim of an alleged hate crime is now speaking out against progressives who advocate for people of color.

“We’re very saddened and disappointed in her,” Esdaile said in a phone interview with Mic. “It seems to me that she’s now trying to play to a different type of demographic.”

It was Esdaile and the NAACP who aided Owens in 2007, when she was a 17-year-old high school student in her hometown of Stamford, Connecticut. In February of that year, a group of white boys from her school reportedly left voicemails on her cell phone in which they used racial slurs and threatened to kill her.

“They started off by telling me that they were going to kill me ‘just because’ I was black,” Owens wrote in an open letter about the incident in 2016. “They warned me that if they found me at home, they were going to unload a bullet into the back of my head. They cited other ‘niggers’ who had died before me, like Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks. They threatened to ‘tar and feather’ my family.”

One of Owens’ alleged harassers was the son of then-Stamford mayor Daniel Malloy, Connecticut’s current governor. Ultimately, with the help of the NAACP, Owens’ father settled a lawsuit against Stamford Public Schools for $37,500 in 2008.

All of this makes it ironic that Owens would now criticize Black Lives Matter supporters for having a “victim mentality.”

“What you’re seeing happening is victim mentality vs. victor mentality,” Owens said during a recent speech at UCLA that was interrupted by Black Lives Matter supporters. “Victim mentality is not cool. You’re not living through anything right now. You’re overly privileged Americans.”

 

Esdaile said Owens’ about-face on progressive advocacy is hypocritical.

“It’s the same type of thing Clarence Thomas did,” he said, referring to the black Supreme Court justice who critics say benefited from affirmative action when he attended Yale University before ruling against affirmative action cases as a judge. “[Thomas] reaped all the benefits of affirmative action and then tried to roll over on it. It’s that kind of mentality and disrespect.”

 

He’s not the only one criticizing Owens’ ideological shift.

 

Tree of Logic, a black Trump supporter, former police officer and entrepreneur that became a conservative YouTuber in 2016, is also calling out Owens’ conservative views. Tree, who said she never uses her real name to protect herself from criminals she’s locked up, has been attacking Owens since she started her own conservative YouTube channel and adopted the alt-right-affiliated nickname Red Pill Black, a nod to the The Matrix‘s “take the red pill” concept popularized by the alt-right during President Donald Trump’s White House run.

Tree said she was shocked when she learned that Kanye tweeted his support for Owens.

“Oh my God! She’s such a phony!” Tree said of Owens while laughing over the phone Thursday. “I can’t believe people are falling for this!”

 

Tree, and other conservative YouTube vloggers known for spouting offensive rhetoric on social media, criticized Owens in 2016 for creating what they called a doxxing website called Social Autopsy. That same year, Owens told the Stamford Advocate her own experiences with bullying inspired her to launch the site, which allowed users to screenshot offensive social media posts and submit them to form a profile on alleged trolls.

“I created a searchable database of people who spew hate online,” she wrote. “I hope it will make people think twice before they exercise their First Amendment rights online as a means to hurt others.”

 

After receiving complaints, Kickstarter eventually suspended funding for Social Autopsy on April 14, 2016, for violating the crowdfunding site’s terms of service. It was taken down in October 2017, according to a YouTube vlogger who followed the story.

In September 2017, Owens told Dave Rubin, host of Rubin Report, that having her website allegedly attacked by video game developer Zoe Quinn was the “red pill moment” that made her a conservative. Owens said she believes Quinn, who was targeted in the Gamergate controversy in 2014, is the one who complained to Kickstarter about Owens’ troll-tracing site and got the funding page shut down.

She also said she believes Quinn was lying about being trolled by Trump supporters, and that Quinn wanted to destroy Social Autopsy because she feared it was going to expose the truth. There isn’t any evidence that this is true. Quinn did not respond to Mic’s request via Twitter for comment on this story, but the harassment she endured during Gamergate has been well documented.

Owens was later recruited and hired by Charlie Kirk, founder and executive director of Turning Point USA, a right-wing group that brings conservative personalities to speak at college campuses. Then, Owens created a YouTube channel and started calling herself Red Pill Black. She stopped going by that name, however, after the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

 

She also told Rubin that she hates the NAACP, calling it a “trash group” that “extort black people’s emotions for pay.” Esdaile, the NAACP leader, called Owens’ comments “blasphemous.”

 

“She’s the only one who got financial gain out of it,” he said, referring to the settlement Owens’ family received. “Her family reached out to the NAACP for help. She was saying that she was scared. She feared for her life, and we made sure all the safety protocols were in place. We were just trying to make sure she was safe getting back into school and that the police department was aware of all the different issues that were going on in reference to her complaint. So how did the NAACP exploit her?”

So this is why Candace was even elevated! She received money from a case with the help of NAACP!

She and her family reached out to NAACP due to an alleged HATE CRIME and then she takes this

leap and turns around and supports Trump. This is pretty sad!

 

Thanks FAS!
