This is a PERFECT example of what liberals do. The following videos will prove EXACTLY what they do to people who oppose their progressive ways.
It was the perfect “GOTCHA” moment for Congressman Ted Lieu (CA). He had a recording of Candice Owens talking about Adolf Hitler.
He presented a recording that somehow made Owens seem to be “praising” or “alluding” to the fact that somehow what Hitler did was for his own specific reasons. As if he wanted to show people that Owens somehow “justified” his despicable acts.
There was only one small problem…
The selective edited recording didn’t have the whole context and the question asked to Candice Owens about Hitler was not included.
The Congressman blatantly knew the edited recording was a lie as he tried to discredit Owens during a House hearing on white nationalism and hate crimes…and GOT CAUGHT!
This is what happened…
Candice Owens, a comms director for Turning Point USA, made her opening remarks at the House hearing by accusing the Democrats of using terms like “white nationalism” to focus on “fear-mongering, power and control.”
“We’re hearing [terms like ‘white nationalism’] sent around today because what they want to say is that brown people want to be scared, which seems to be the narrative that we hear every four years ahead of a presidential election.”
"The hearing today is not about white nationalism or hate-crimes, it’s about fear-mongering, power and control."

After Owen’s opening statement, liberal Congressman Ted Lieu (CA) decided he would attack Owens by discrediting her opening statement.
Here’s what the congressman said:
“I don’t know Ms. Owens. I’m not going to characterize her. I’m going to let her own words do the talking. So, I’m going to play for you the first 30 seconds of a statement she made about Adolf Hitler.”

A furious Owens UNLEASHED on the lying Congressman and said,
“I think it’s pretty apparent that Mr. Lieu believes that black people are stupid and will not pursue the full clip…That was unbelievably dishonest…I’m deeply offended by the insinuation of revealing that clip without the question that was asked of me.”
At one point House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) tried to step in and set Candace Owens straight but she hit back harder.
Here’s the exchange that took place:

These are the types of LYING tactics liberals use to discredit people who don’t share their liberal views. Candice Owens is a Conservative African-American woman who doesn’t buy into the liberal narrative.
Should the Congressman apologize to Owens for trying to discredit her in such a blatantly lying way?
