Activist mirrors President Trump’s prior criticism of Waters
Activist Candace Owens stated that California Rep. Maxine Waters is “not a smart person” echoing Donald Trump’s comment on the deranged leftist that she has a “low IQ.”
In a discussion on the Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Owens mirrored President Trump’s prior criticism of Waters, but also with basketball star Lebron James and the left’s characterization of anyone who criticizes a black non-conservative as “automatically racist.”
“What is your reaction to this kind of response, to a president who actually has said to a lot of people that they are dumb, white and black,” asked guest-host Tammy Bruce.
“The left has been operating under this very bizarre assumption you can’t critique a black person in this country unless it makes you automatically racist — that’s ridiculous, that’s false” Owens responded.
“I’m critiqued every day. Usually, I’m called a porch monkey and I’m referred to as a lot of racial slurs in my Twitter feed because I’m a conservative black thinker. The idea that you can’t think somebody has a low IQ — a provably low IQ — Maxine Waters is not a smart person.
You can’t say that because she’s black? That’s ridiculous. The president insults a lot of people, black, white and Hispanic. He’s definitely not looking at color when he talks to someone.”
According to The daily caller: The topic then shifted to Lebron James and Owens’ believe that CNN’s Don Lemon purposefully shifted the questioning to score a hit on President Trump.
Owens contended that although James is “brilliant on the court,” he does not “understand how to operate” with the media looking to “get that 5-second sound bite.”
“I would welcome a dialogue with Lebron James,” said Owens.
“He is in this regard an ignorant man. He does not understand. I’m not going to refer to him as uneducated but I am going to refer to him as ignorant. He knows very little about politics.”
Owens was attacked by George Soros funded Antifa protestors at a Philadelphia coffee shop on Monday morning who accused her of being a “white supremacist.”
Candice, along with fellow activist Charlie Kirk, both known for organizing conservative student activist events with the group Turning Point USA, faced a barrage of abuse as they left the coffee shop in Philadelphia.
Owens an Kirk were screamed at by Antifa protesters who seemed completely unhinged and bordering on ‘violent’ as they left the coffee shop.
