So true to form, Democrat House Rep from California Ted Lieu, tried to smear Candace Owens as a supporter of Hitler with an edited recording which took all context away from the question she was being asked of her.
Such was the circus, Lieu provided Owens no right of reply. It took another member of Congress to yield their time so she could answer.
More embarrassing was Chairman Jerry Nadler (D) incorrectly censuring her for calling Lieu “stupid” when in fact she questioned whether Rep Lieu “thought black people were stupid and would not pursue the full clip in its entirety.” She quipped it was OK for them to call her “despicable”
So desperate are the Democrats looking to paint narratives of division that they only need to stare in the mirror to see where it is coming from. How could Lieu make the claim that he knew nothing about Owens yet managed to have an edited recording?
Even if his team supplied it, it would have made sense for the Rep to do his homework on the subject matter save him getting slapped down by the eloquence of Owens. She was right to call his refusal to allow a reply as telling as to she was to criticize him for being “unbelievably dishonest“.
Maybe Lieu might reflect on hate crime as reported by the FBI in his own community.
Anti-Asian hate crime has fallen from a peak of 527 in 1996 to 131 in 2017. In 2017, Asians were 0.00069% likely to suffer a hate crime relative to the Asian American population.
