Take whatever opinion you have on Candace Owens and set it aside for just a second. Instead of either praising Candace Owens or frowning at Candace Owens for her past, present or future comments yet to be made, let’s all unite around Ted Lieu getting bitchslapped in a Congressional hearing. Here’s the clip:
Candace Owens: "I think it's pretty apparent that Mr. Lieu believes that black people are stupid and will not pursue the full clip…That was unbelievably dishonest…I'm deeply offended by the insinuation of revealing that clip without the question that was asked of me." pic.twitter.com/UioMSZK93d

Again, your personal feelings for Candace Owens aside, she nailed both Nadler and Lieu here, calling them both out for being narrative-pushing, disingenuous pieces of human crap. Related: Democrat Ted Lieu Shamelessly Exploits Shooting Victims to Push Gun Control. [Video]
Second thing, I wish Candace had said (she did well in this clip here, so credit where due), that she as an American taxpayer is one of the employers of both Ted Lieu and Jerry Nadler, and maybe they should consider loaning a little of the respect they demand of her toward her. It’s a point I wish was made of every taxpaying private citizen who speaks before some governmental panel.
Back to the point, Democrats constantly try taking their opposition out not by debating them on their ideas, but simply classifying them as something “other than.” Which seemed to happen to Candace Owens in the clip above: rather than take her on for her ideas, they tried to categorize her as something and discredit her based on that label. She didn’t let them get away with it.
