While testifying before the House Oversight Joint Subcommittee on Friday, conservative commentator Candace Owens took Dr. Kathleen Belew to task after the liberal professor attempted to put words into her mouth, saying she called the Christchurch massacre "hilarious."
After asserting that she found the entire "Confronting White Supremacy" hearing to be a "farce" that Democrats repeat "every four years ahead of an election cycle" to get black votes, Owens had a few choice words for Belew.
"You just tried to do, live, what the media does all the time to republicans and to our president and to conservatives. You tried to manipulate what I said to meet your narrative," said Owens. "And the audacity for you to bring up the Christchurch manifesto and make it seem as though a laughed at people who were slaughtered by a homicidal maniac is, in my opinion, absolutely despicable."
She clarified that what she found laughable was that "when asked for actual numbers, nobody here could actually provide them, because [white nationalism] is not actually a major problem or threat that's facing Black Americans. This is, again, just election rhetoric."
Owens argued that there are more important issues affecting "minority Americans," which Democratic policies fail to address.
"If we're going to have a hearing on white supremacy, we are assuming that the biggest victims of that are minority Americans," she added. "Presumably this hearing would be to stop that and preserve the lives of minority Americans, but 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."
