Antifa Attacks, Harasses Black Conservative Candace Owens: ‘Stop White Supremacy!’ (Video)

Antifa Attacks, Harasses Black Conservative Candace Owens: ‘Stop White Supremacy!’ (Video)

Candace Owens and Charlie Kirk, two leaders of student group Turning Point USA, were attacked and harassed by ‘Antifa’ activists and leftists in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Turning Point USA is an American conservative, right-wing nonprofit organization whose stated mission is “to educate students about true free market values.”

Video shared by the pair show them harassed by ‘antifa’ activists, several of whom cover their faces, as they were eating breakfast in Philadelphia on Monday morning.

In two videos shared by Owens, assorted members of antifa can be heard shouting “f*** white privilege,” “stop white supremacy,” “cops and Klan, hand-in-hand,” and “1, 2, 3, f*** the bourgeoisie” while banging on drums, blowing whistles, and using bullhorns.

One leftist is seen pouring what appears to be a drink on Kirk. Another agitator said to Kirk. “You’re a fascist piece of s***. F*** you. F*** America.”

After driving them out of a restaurant, the mob threw drinks at Owens and Kirk, and chanted “no more white supremacy,” and “f*ck the racist police,” despite the fact that Owens and several of the officers present are in fact African-American.

As Owens attempted to engage a small group of protesters in debate, they switched tactics and began screeching into her face.

Police escorted Owens and Kirk away from the scene, and Kirk reportedly declined to press charges against a protester who threw a drink at him.

“So [Candace] & I were peacefully eating breakfast this morning. Within 20 mins ANTIFA mobilized a protest, started screaming at us, attacked us, & threatened death against us,” Kirk tweeted. “This is the face of the Democrats. Conservatives aren’t safe  – @RepMaxineWaters called for this.”

RT reported:

Kirk was referring to Representative Maxine Waters’ (D-California) now-infamous speech to followers at a Los Angeles rally in June, where she called for public harassment of Trump administration officials.

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them! And you tell them that they are not welcome, anymore, anywhere,” she told the cheering crowd.

Since the speech, which some conservatives have called an incitement to violence, Antifa and some Democratic party activists have heeded the call. Several Trump officials were ran out of restaurants by mobs; a Florida attorney general was spat on at a movie theater; and a teen was assaulted and had his red MAGA hat stolen in a burger joint. Those were just some of the incidents that gained national attention.

Monday’s incident drew bewilderment from conservative commentators on Twitter, with one calling the image of a white protester calling Owens a white supremacist “surreal.”

Kirk is the leader of Turning Point USA, a conservative youth organization that aims to challenge what it sees as a liberal bias at college campuses and schools throughout the country. Owens is the organization’s communications director.

Owens shot to fame when she received a shout-out from Kanye West earlier this year, as the rap megastar returned to Twitter with a barrage of tweets promoting self-help and daring to agree with President Donald Trump.

Since then, Owens’ beliefs have made her a lightning rod for Democrat anger. Most recently, after the New York Times stood by hiring editorial board member Sarah Jeong despite her history of racist tweets against white people, Owens replaced the word ‘white’ with ‘Jewish’ and ‘black’ in Jeong’s messages and tweeted them out to illustrate the apparent double standard at play.

Her Twitter account was temporarily suspended over the weekend, proving her point.

It was Maxine Waters who called on people to attack and harass conservatives out in public – the blame for this attack on Owens and Kirk falls on her shoulders.

Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), went on an unhinged rant in Los Angeles in June, calling on supporters at a rally to stand up and “push back” against members of President Trump’s administration by harassing them at stores, restaurants, and gas stations.

This kind of rhetoric is very dangerous coming from Waters and she will not be happy until someone is killed. Had the police not shown up to escort Owens and Kirk to safety there is no saying what the crowd would have done to them.

Judicial Watch reports:

In encouraging individuals to create “crowds” who will “push back” on President Trump’s Cabinet members at private business establishments and in seemingly trying to prevent these Cabinet officials from obtaining basic necessities without fear of assault and violence, Rep. Waters seems to be violation of House rules…

Judicial Watch sent a hand-delivered letter to the chairman and co-chairman of the House Office of Congressional Ethics Monday calling for an investigation into whether Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) violated House ethics rules by encouraging violence against Trump administration Cabinet members.

Rep. Maxine Waters addressed a rally in Los Angeles on Saturday, June 23, telling a crowd:

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them! And you tell them that they are not welcome, anymore, anywhere.”

In today’s letter to the Office of Congressional Ethics co-chairman, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton writes:

In encouraging individuals to create “crowds” who will “push back” on President Trump’s Cabinet members at private business establishments and in seemingly trying to prevent these Cabinet officials from obtaining basic necessities without fear of assault and violence, Rep. Waters seems to be violation of House rules, specifically:

A Member, Delegate, Resident Commissioner, officer, or employee of the House shall conduct himself at all times in a manner that shall reflect creditably on the House. [House Rule 23, clause 1.]

We hereby request that the Office of Congressional Ethics conduct a preliminary investigation into whether Rep. Maxine Waters violated House Rules in encouraging attacks on Cabinet officials.

“Rep. Maxine Waters incited violence and assault against members of President Trump’s Cabinet,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It is urgent that the House ethics quickly act to hold her accountable for this dangerous incitement.”
