African American conservative activist Candace Owens denounced to Congress on Sept. 20 that Democrats use the issue of ‘white supremacy’ for electoral purposes.
She also said that arguments about white supremacy were used by Democrats to scare Americans, and that they were manipulated over and over again instead of facing the real threats to the nation, according to the hearing videos.
Owens was invited to discuss the matter before the House Joint Oversight Subcommittee one month after a white nationalist shooting in El Paso, Texas.
She also argued that she found it ironic that the hearing was attended by three Caucasians testifying and talking about their specialty, but that she specialized in being an African American in the United States for 30 years—all her life—and she assures that exactly the same thing happens every four years before each election cycle [using the argument of white nationalism for electoral purposes].
She stated that nationalism and white supremacy are not a problem for the country’s minorities.
“Based on the hierarchy of what’s impacting minority Americans, if I had to make a list of 100 things, white nationalism would not make the list,” Owens said, discarding that racial action by whites would victimize members of minority groups.
According to her criteria on issues requiring urgent resolution she pointed to the absence of the father in the home, the crime of blacks against blacks, abortion, illegal immigration and the Democrats’ attack on masculinity.
She also stated that no one could give real figures on the impact of the alleged problem because it was not really an obstacle to the African American population, and reinforced that African Americans were more likely to be struck by lightning than by the police, at least that was the case in 2016.
