Daily Headlines: Candace Owens got into a heated fight with former first daughter Chelsea Clinton on Twitter this weekend.
“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,” Owens said at the conference.
“So when you think about, whenever we say ‘nationalism,’ the first thing people thing about, at least in America, is Hitler,” she said. “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 … he had dreams outside of Germany,” she said. “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.”
Clinton started the battle by speaking about what Owens said about Hitler at a Talking Points USA conference.
“Hitler’s ‘make Germany great’ included more than 400 regulations that stripped German Jews of their ability to work, go to school, vote, own property, seek care in public hospitals & enter ‘Aryan’ zones. All before the Holocaust. In 1943, Germany celebrated being ‘free of Jews,’”
A man named Andrew Martin fired back at her by saying he was offended by the Hitler and President Donald Trump comparison.
“I know you are trying to make a Trump/Hitler connection. I find it extremely offensive. Open a book and read what Hitler REALLY did. You are offending Jews that lived through the holocaust. You are offending soldiers that freed them. Find a legitimate cause!”
“Good afternoon Andrew – Ignorance about Hitler’s evil regime must always be confronted. That burden should not fall on Holocaust survivors. There was nothing, using @RealCandaceO own words, “great” about the Third Reich before it began annexing & invading its neighbors.”
Then Owens got involved to defend herself and she took the gloves off and went for the jugular.
