MAGA Mascot Candace Owens Is Getting Dragged To Hell For Defending Hitler

After the BuzzFeed report came out on Friday, a video surfaced of Owens' odd defense of the man responsible for killing millions of people.

Candace Owens, the comms director for conservative youth organization Turning Points USA, is getting attention for curious statements she made about Adolf Hitler during a Q&A in London. Now Candace - who rapper Kanye West in April tweeted "I love the way Candace Owens thinks" and openly praised her before later distancing himself from the pundit - is now coming under fire for her pro-Hitler comment.

"I actually don't have any problems at all with the word nationalism". Globalism's what I do not want...

Owens spoke up for nationalism against what she characterized as Americans' knee-jerk association of the term with Hitler, claiming the Nazi leader wasn't a nationalist at all, since he'd set his sights beyond Germany's borders and "wanted to globalize".

"Owens went on to explain that Hitler was a" national socialist", before adding "but if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, okay, fine.

The 29-year-old woman went on to argue that 'The problem is that he wanted - he had dreams going outside of Germany. He wanted to globalise. Everyone to look a different way.

"I actually don't have any problems at all with the word nationalism", she began.

Of course, Hitler is famously one of history's most horrendous dictators whose plan to "make Germany great" involved committing genocide internal to the country, not just outside its boundaries. During her talk, Owens was asked for her views on nationalism. And the fact that she so carelessly dismisses this vicious part of the ideology is a flawless example of why those defending supposedly new versions of nationalism should not be taken seriously. That burden should not fall on Holocaust survivors. I really don't. I think that it's okay.

It is worth pointing out, again, that the initial question posed to Owens was exclusively about the rise of nationalism, and it was she who brought up Adolf Hitler.

The "OK" line clearly wasn't her endorsing Hitler, but the media frames it that way.

Needless to say, Hitler's fascist dictatorship in Germany in the 1930s-long before its imperialist expansion into neighboring countries-was a totalitarian and oppressive regime with extreme racial policies targeting Jews and other minorities.

Perhaps he'll have something to say in response to her thoughts now. He wasn't a nationalist. "He was a mass murderer".
