In one blistering segment, Turning Point’s Candace Owens demonstrated why she is such a major threat to the progressive left’s stranglehold on the political narrative in this country.
In an appearance Sunday on “Fox & Friends,” Owens shut down Democratic strategist Jessica Tarlov when she tried to justify the outrage on the left over illegal immigrant children being separated from their families, pointing to six decades of Democrat actions in the black community.
The ladies were debating the treatment of women in the Trump administration after Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders were targeted last week by unhinged leftists.
Owens said there is a double standard at play here, with Tarlov countering that these women are being targeted, in part, because they push policies harmful to women.
This prompted Owens to chime in to say, “Don’t make this a feminism issue.”
“I’m not done,” Owens declared, as Tarlov attempted to jump back in. “You are not a feminist. You sit here and say you care about mothers, the basis of this is that people are upset that illegal immigrants are being taken away from their mothers.”
(Owens would later clarify that she was not speaking of Tarlov personally, but of the liberal community.)
“Why don’t you refocus some of that energy into the black community,” she continued. “They’ve been having their families separated, in fact, it’s subsidized in the black community.”
Owens explained that Democrats “appreciate single motherhood,” and give more money to black homes where the fathers are absent.
“So all this selective fake outrage, when you guys don’t have the same defenses for the black community is really lost on me,” she said. “It’s ‘times up’ on this altogether. The black community has had enough of you guys being selectively outraged for parents of illegal immigrants but not for the parents of black men who have been separated from their families for about six decades now!”
The drubbing was so bad, Fox News host Abby Huntsman interjected to remind her guests to keep it civil.
Yet, after talking the talk on being civil, Tarlov proceeded to condone the uncivilized actions of democrat socialists in D.C., who accosted Secretary Nielsen as she tried to have dinner, saying the angry mob had “every right” to confront her.
