WATCH: Ted Lieu humiliates Candace Owens for her historically illiterate Hitler comments at House hearing

Published

on

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) on Tuesday busted Trump supporter Candace Owens about historically illiterate remarks she made earlier this year about Adolf Hitler.

While criticizing the Republican Party’s choice to invite Owens to testify before a Congressional hearing, Lieu took out his phone and played audio of Owens saying that the only problem she had with Hitler was he wanted to be a “globalist” and expand his brand of fascism around the world instead of keeping it in Germany.

“If Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, OK, fine,” Owens said. “The problem is 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.”

After playing the clip, Lieu then asked Anti-Defamation League executive Eileen Hershenov if statements like Owens’ “feed into white nationalist ideology.”

“It does, Mr. Lieu,” she replied, although she added that Owens “distanced herself from those comments later.”

Nonetheless, Hershenov said that the ADL “expressed great concern over the original comments.”

WATCH: John Oliver exposes Trump’s lies about vote-by-mail — and the Fox News ‘cult’ claiming the election is already ‘rigged’

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver's main story Sunday refuted President Donald Trump's latest crusade against vote-by-mail. Trump announced on Twitter that the more people who vote in an election, the more Republicans tend to lose. So, he wants fewer people to have access to the ballot in November, even if people are too scared to go out during the coronavirus crisis.

Oliver called out Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R-MO), who outright told people not to vote if they were too afraid to vote in the local elections next week.

"Well, hold on there," Oliver interjected. "Voting is a right. It has to be easy to understand and accessible to anyone."

John Oliver rips Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for urging ‘order’ from people of color — but never demanding it of police

Published

on

John Oliver opened his Sunday show, shredding Fox News host Tucker Carlson for uring "order" among protesters, but refusing to urge "order" to police and "wannabe police" who can't stop killing people.

It's a lot, Oliver explained. "How these protests are a response to a legacy of police misconduct, both in Minneapolis and the nation at large and how that misconduct is, itself, built on a legacy of white supremacy that prioritizes the comfort of white Americans over the safety of people of color."

While some of it is complicated, Oliver conceded, most of it is "all too clear."

Cars set on fire blocks from White House as DC protests turn violent

Published

on

The Washington, D.C. protests turned violent as the city approached the 11 p.m. curfew the mayor instituted Sunday afternoon.

The policy of D.C. police is that when they are attacked, they advance forward. So, when fireworks were fired, the line of officers began pushing the protesters back further from the White House. Behind the line of police officers also stand a line of National Guard troops that President Donald Trump has demanded stand watch in the city.

Lights that normally shine on the White House have also been turned off, reporters revealed.
