Forget playing nice, because conservative firebrand Candace Owens decided this weekend to play honest instead. So honest, in fact, that she dropped a brutally blunt tweet in which she derided every single liberal in America as a communist hellbent on destroying Western civilization.
We need to stop calling them liberals and begin referring to them as exactly what they are: American communists, that wish to partake in the destruction of western civilization.

Was she being hyperbolic, or did she have a point? A lot of it depends on who exactly you define as a liberal.
During a Democrat congressional debate in Arizona Thursday, audience members booed a House candidate after she expressed support for U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement. Would you classify the candidate, Ann Kirkpatrick, as a true liberal — or her hecklers as the real liberals?
The point is that there’s a difference between the moderate liberalism of Democrats like Ann Kirkpatrick, and the radical liberalism (or illiberalism) of her detractors. What makes Owens’ remarks compelling and possibly true is the fact that the latter form of liberalism is on the rise, whereas Kirkpatrick’s brand of moderate liberalism is decidedly on the decline.
This is most evident by the left’s growing embrace of nearly everything immoral or simply illegal, including but not limited to illegal immigration, drug abuse, pedophilia and, most tellingly, socialism and communism.
A poll from earlier this year found that a plurality of millennials would prefer to live in a socialist country, while seven percent would rather live to live in an entirely communist one. Even more disturbing is that one in five 20-somethings actually consider Joseph Stalin, one of the greatest mass murderers in history, to be a “hero.”
These are striking numbers. Also striking is the fact that so many liberals both young and old alike seem to hate America and Western culture in general. Just consider how the left responded when President Donald Trump delivered a bold speech last year touting the wonders of Western civilization and pledging to never let it fall.
“Just as Poland could not be broken, I declare today for the world to hear that the West will never, ever be broken,” he said. “Our values will prevail, our people will thrive, and our civilization will triumph,” he said.
The general consensus among the far-left was that the speech was a nod to “alt-right extremism. Quick question, though : What do you call someone who likes socialism, hates America and pines for the fall of Western civilization?
According to Candace Owens, the answer to that question is clear …
