Candace Owens, Communications Director for Turning Point joinedThe Five for a tell all interview!
Candace shined more light on her recent run-in with Antifa in Philadelphia while dining with founder of Turning Point, Charlie Kirk.
Owens told Greg Gutfeld how she and Charlie were having breakfast. After they sat down, a table of four Antifa were seated and they recognized them.
Then the Antifa members called their friends who were there within twenty minutes…along with the police who met the Turning Point pair outside.
As Candace explained to the Fox and Friends audience, “they were shouting ‘race traitor’ to us. The entire Antifa gang.”
She clarifies, “if you guys, don’t know, watching at home, [Antifa] consists of ALL white people. There are no black people in this crowd.”
Interestingly she said with a smile, “this is absolute nonsense.” Referring to one of the Antifa gang calling her a “white supremacist.”
Furthermore, she lets us know that “save one, out of the police officers, happened to be white. The rest were all black and hispanic.”
This kind of attack, is exactly what Maxine Waters famously called for in her battle cry where she said:
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and 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 they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
Candace says of her attack, “Here, is what we did wrong. We underestimated the left.”
“We thought they could get through a breakfast, peacefully. And sit there and eat their meal. And allow us to do the same,” Candace tells The Five.
“But, of course, they were sending out a ‘bat signal’ for all of the other Antifa protesters to come and arrive and to stalk and harass us,” she says.
Geraldo mentions Jim Acosta and how he claimed his life was in danger while attending a Trump rally.
The Trump supporters were chanting at him. And Candace was quick to throw down that this was much different.
Candace says, “Jim Acosta? It was a chant. Right?”
Turning back to her situation she tells Geraldo, “they threw water, they threw eggs, they threw food at us. So, this was different. And we were not at a Trump rally. This wasn’t a political gathering. We were eating…breakfast,” she says with a big beautiful smile!
She also mentions how “Jim Acosta was taking pictures and loving it. Okay. We were not taking pictures with Antifa after this. They wanted to harm us,” she tells the group more seriously.
Candace continues, “Jim Acosta was aware that this was a friendly chant, if you will. Because if he wasn’t aware, he wouldn’t have gotten down and taken pictures with the protesters…”
Then to get her point across, she states, “this is a BIG difference when we’re talking about a chant that is meant to get people excited at a Trump rally versus actually trying to bring harm to an individual.”
In ending, Candace with graciousness galore says, “I would never want what happened to me to happen to Jim Acosta.”
