This Just In: Left Discovers Candace Owens Is A Nazi!

Jihad Watch : Are Leftists evil, crazy, or both? This piece isn’t about jihad, but
it does describe an instance of the same tactic that Leftists and
Islamic supremacists use on foes of jihad terror and Sharia oppression:
take a statement, twist its meaning, and use it to try to defame and
destroy the speaker. My latest in FrontPage:
Leftists thought they had hit the jackpot last week in
their never-ending quest to portray all dissenters from their
totalitarian agenda as Nazis and/or tools of Vladimir Putin: video
surfaced of black conservative activist Candace Owens of Turning Point
USA appearing to say that the only problem with Adolf Hitler was that he
carried his program outside of Germany. Their gleeful smearing of Owens
raises the question yet again: are Leftists evil, crazy, or both? Owens said this at a December event in London:
I actually don’t have any problems at all with the word
‘nationalism.’ I think that it gets, the definition gets poisoned by
elitists that actually want globalism. Globalism is what I don’t want.
So when you think about, whenever we say ‘nationalism,’ the first thing
people think about, at least in America, is Hitler. You know, he was a
national socialist, but if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and
have things run well, okay fine.
The problem is that he wanted, he had
dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize. He wanted everybody
to be German. Everybody to be speaking German. Everybody to look a
different way. To me, that’s not nationalism. In thinking about how we
could go bad down the line, I don’t really have an issue with
nationalism. I really don’t. I think that it’s okay.
It was indeed possible to see this as saying that the only problem
with Hitler was that he didn’t confine his activities to Germany alone.
And Owens’ Trump/Hitler resonance in speaking of Hitler wanting to “make
Germany great” was more fodder for Leftists eager to find validation of
their multiple smears of conservatives, and particularly of Trump
