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:

Fox News Media in America Racism WTF?!

Candace Owens Claims In-Person Learning Teaches American Kids To Hate White People

You’ve probably seen Candace Owens on various Fox News programs or run across her moronic postings on social media. She’s also a strong proponent of the so-called Blexit movement, which urges African-Americans and other people of color to leave the Democratic Party and pledge their allegiance to Republicans, even though doing so would not be the least bit beneficial to black or brown people.

Now, however, Owens is trying to suggest that coronavirus is a blessing because in-person learning is worthless and only serves to make American children into voters who are anti-white.

During an appearance on Fox News on Sunday, host Maria Bartiromo was speaking with Owens and declared:

“They’re assuming every [white] kid is a racist, Candace.”

That was all the prompting Owens needed to send her off on a fact-free rant:

“I know that Megyn Kelly pulled her kids from school for similar reason. I truly believe that it’s time for us to pull our kids out of school. And I know people say, ‘Not all of us can afford to do that,’ but the country wasn’t built on people having a lot of money when they were homeschooling.”

And what about parents who work away from home and cannot be there to homeschool their children? What are they supposed to do? Quit their jobs and become homeschool instructors? Clearly, as with most things she pontificates on, Owens hasn’t bothered to actually do any thinking on the issue.

From there, Owens then raised the specter of Marxism, though she’s probably never read a damn thing Karl Marx wrote:

“It’s indoctrination that’s happening. They’re trying to fuel racism in this country. They’re trying to teach this Marxist ideology. And the bad thing is, Maria, that they’re replacing hard academics. These kids are not learning science, they’re not learning mathematics, they’re learning how to hate white people and they’re learning how to hate their country.”

If that wasn’t bad enough, Owens also suggested suing every public school in the United States. Oddly, she never made that statement when Betsy DeVos was Secretary of Education. That alone proves just how completely full of shit Candace Owens is, and how desperate she is to be in the spotlight now that her savior, Donald Trump, has been sent into retirement and is likely facing criminal indictment in the weeks ahead.

But by all means, sue your kid’s school. Then send the legal bills to Candace Owens and see if she’s willing to pay them. After all, it was her stupid idea.
