Domestic Terrorism GOP Right Wing Morons WTF?!

Candace Owens Claims Jan. 6 Was Nothing More Than ‘Grandmas Taking Selfies’

According to right-wing activist and author Candace Owens (who once praised Adolf Hitler), the rioting and insurrection that took place on January 6 at the U.S. Capitol wasn’t that big of a deal, and was little more than “grandmas taking selfies.”

During an appearance on “Sunday Morning Futures” with host Maria Bartiromo, Owens said President Joe Biden had been wrong to call Jan. 6 “the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.”

“What I love about this rhetoric is as a D.C. resident who was living there on Jan. 6 — I mean, I was nine months pregnant. I wasn’t there, but a couple of blocks down. It’s just hilarious following what was essentially an entire summer of Black Lives Matter burning down our city.”

Ah, yes. Let’s be sure and try to distract everyone from an attempted coup that took place at the urging of former President Donald Trump and instead talk about Black Lives Matter. That’s the oldest trick in the book, and it proves that Owens can’t actually defend the actions of the pro-Trump rioters who attacked and killed police officers.

But it was what Owens said next that’s certain to raise the most eyebrows, if only because it’s complete bullshit:

“And they want me to be fearful about grandmas taking selfies. And the reason for this is because Democrats, again, have lost the plot and they know this. This rhetoric isn’t working on anybody. Nobody believes that Jan. 6 was worse than the Civil War.”

No one said it was worse than the Civil War, Candace. President Biden said it was the worst attack on American democracy since the Civil War. Words matter, but Ms. Owens is only too happy to lie in a pathetic attempt to make her case.

According to Owens, Democrats are attempting to “criminalize conservatives coming together to fight during times when their rights are being threatened.”

“This is really just more totalitarian talk from Joe Biden trying to criminalize half the nation for supporting Donald Trump, who should be in office instead of him.”

Trump should be in office even though he received 7 million fewer votes and lost the Electoral College vote, too? Please! Less than half the country voted for the failed, one-term former president, and he was soundly beaten because he didn’t rise to the biggest challenge of his presidency: Controlling the COVID pandemic.

Here’s the video of Candace making a fool of herself:
