This WEEK has been a WEEK, right!!? SO MUCH going ona nd so little TIME. Well let me sum up some of the HOT TOPICS of the week in ‘The 5IVE’!!!
5: Conservative commentator Candace Owens to Congress: ‘White Supremacy and White Nationalism Are Not a Problem’
Five months after far-right pundit Candace Owens told Congress that the rise in hate crimes is “fake” and the GOP’s Southern Strategy was “a myth,” Republicans once again invited her to testify before a subcommittee on combating white supremacy. This time around, the conservative provocateur straight-up dismissed the notion that white nationalism is a problem.
Early on in Friday’s hearing before the House Oversight Joint Subcommittee, Owens—who late last year said Adolf Hitler was “OK” before he tried to go global—downplayed the threat of white supremacy in the United States, calling it nothing more than a fringe issue. (Reminder: The El Paso mass shooting was less than two months ago.)
WHAT created this woman? We still don’t know….
