Owens: Given the Democratic Party’s History of Racism, Their Attacks on Me Aren’t a Surprise

Here is Candace Owens explaining how the Democratic Party’s history of racism explains their treatment of her in a Congressional hearing this past week:

When the Democrats’ ridiculous, fear-mongering “Rise of White Nationalism” hearing blew up in their faces, liberals went looking for a scapegoat: me.

My mere presence at the hearing turned a “serious inquiry” into a “farce,” according to Dana Milbank, the arch-liberal columnist at the Jeff Bezos-owned Washington Post.

“Serious inquiry?” What a joke.

That hearing was a farce from the very beginning; all I did was expose it for what it was. The entire exercise was nothing but the opening salvo of the Democrats’ 2020 election strategy, which involves getting minority voters to the polls with a combination of fear and bribery — using the specter of “white nationalism” to smear Republicans while Democrats call for “reparations” in the form of government handouts.

It was a cynical, condescending attempt to mislead black voters, and while the Democrats had a whole panel of left-wing identity politics activists and social media executives to help them, only Zionist Organization of America leader Mort Klein and I were on hand to counter their deceptions.

We had our work cut out for us, even with the very conspicuous absence of representatives from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC scammed its way to a half-billion dollar fortune by stoking racial fears among minorities, making a business out of willfully smearing conservative Christians and immigration restrictionists as “hate groups” on par with the Ku Klux Klan.

Even though recent controversies have made the SPLC too toxic for even the Democrats to risk inviting, much of the liberal media still cited SPLC propaganda in their coverage of the hearing.

The Democrats’ chosen activists, meanwhile, dragged out juiced statistics suggesting America is suffering through a wave of white nationalist violence and “hate crimes.” In reality, though, only a tiny sliver of violent crime in this country is committed by “white nationalists,” even under the absurdly broad definitions these groups use to inflate their statistics and further their fear mongering.
