Congressman slams MAGA 'expert' Candace Owens by playing her own Hitler comments at hearing.

Yes, she defended Hitler.

In April, the House Judiciary Committee hosted a hearing on Hate Crimes and the Rise of White Nationalism. How big an issue is extremism on the internet? It’s such a big issue that the hearing about hate speech was immediately inundated with hate speech.


The Democrats in the majority invited witnesses including Dr. Mohammad Abu-Salha, whose two daughters and son-in-law were murdered in an anti-Muslim hate crime. Republicans, on their end, brought in InfoWars alumna and fan of Hitler’s early work, Candace Owens.

For those lucky enough to be unfamiliar with who this “Candace Owens” person is, she is like the Tomi Lahren of Omarosas. She’s the conservative political commentator the New Zealand terrorist called his biggest influence and BFFs with Don Jr., which does, in fact, make her an expert on hate crimes.

Congressman Ted Lieu, a representative from California, was openly upset about his Republican colleagues making a mockery of what should be an important hearing by inviting a professional Twitter troll.

Lieu tweeted out a link to the time when Owens defended Hitler’s domestic policies of Making Germany Great Again, even though those policies involved exterminating Jewish people.

“If Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, okay fine. The problem is ... he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize. He wanted everybody to be German,” she told an audience in London in February.

Call me old fashioned, but I think that “the problem” with Hitler wasn’t just that he had international ambitions—it’s that he was committing genocide.

Lieu played the clip at the hearing and Owens was not happy.

Owens attempted to defend herself by accusing Rep. Lieu of anti-black bias.

Lieu responded on Twitter by once again tweeting out the whole clip.

Other highlights of Owens appearance with the world’s finest legislative body include lying about Richard Nixon’s Southern Strategy and making the GOP happy with her commitment to “triggering the libs.”

We've all felt lonely at some point in our lives. It's a human experience as universal as happiness, sadness or even hunger. But there's been a growing trend of studies and other evidence suggesting that Americans, and people in general, are feeling more lonely than ever.

It's easy to blame technology and the way our increasingly online lives have further isolated us from "real" human interactions. The Internet once held seemingly limitless promise for bringing us together but seems to be doing just the opposite.

Except that's apparently not true at all. A major study from Cigna on loneliness found that feelings of isolation and loneliness are on the rise amongst Americans but the numbers are nearly identical amongst those who use social media and those who don't. Perhaps more importantly, the study found five common traits amongst those who don't feel lonely.

In September 1939, the Nazis invaded Poland. By April 1940, the gates closed on the Lodz Ghetto, the second largest in the country after Warsaw.

Throughout the war, over 210,000 people would be imprisoned in Lodz.

Among those held captive was Henryk Ross. He was a Jewish sports photographer before the Nazi invasion and worked for the the ghetto's Department of Statistics during the war. As part of his official job, he took identification photos of the prisoners and propaganda shots of Lodz' textile and leather factories.

Joey Grundl, a pizza delivery driver for a Domino's Pizza in Waldo, Wisconsin, is being hailed as a hero for noticing a kidnapped woman's subtle cry for help.

The delivery man was sent to a woman's house to deliver a pie when her ex-boyfriend, Dean Hoffman, opened the door. Grundl looked over his shoulder and saw a middle-aged woman with a black eye standing behind Hoffman. She appeared to be mouthing the words: "Call the police."

"I gave him his pizza and then I noticed behind him was his girlfriend," Grundl told WITI Milwaukee. "She pointed to a black eye that was quite visible. She mouthed the words, 'Call the police.'"

A post on the Murdered by Words subreddit is going viral for the perfect way a poster shut down a knee-jerk "double-standard!" claim.

It began when a Redditor posted a 2015 Buzzfeed article story about a single dad who took cosmetology lessons to learn how to do his daughter's hair.

Most people would see the story as something positive. A dad goes out of his way to learn a skill that makes his daughter look fabulous.
