Look in the mirror, and through a history book, if you’ve spent the last four years calling supporters of Donald Trump Nazis, conservative commentator and Blexit leader Candace Owens says.
In a Tuesday tweet, Owens responded to liberal calls to reeducate conservatives and label them domestic terrorists:
“Let me know when they begin seizing our assets and sending us off to ‘re-education camps’.
“For those of you that have spent the last 4 years calling Trump supporters nazis—it might be time to take a good hard look in the mirror, or at the very least—through a history book.”
Owens included a tweet by former Hawaii Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard calling on President Joe Biden to denounce profiling and surveilling Americans as potential domestic terrorists simply based on their religion or political views:
“Profiling & surveilling half the country as potential “domestic terrorists” because of their religion or political views is dangerous, divisive, & undermines our constitution. @JoeBiden must denounce proponents of this madness & unite the country-not demonize political opposition”
“.@joebiden Your leadership is needed now to denounce those like John Brennan & Rep Schiff who are advocating for targeting half the country as potential domestic terrorists. Truly unite the American people around our Constitution & the rights that are endowed to us by our Creator”
In an interview on Fox News Channel posted by Gabbard, she warns that the list of Americans to be profiled and tracked would continue to be expanded until even Libertarians and “anybody who loves freedom” are branded “extremists”:
“What characteristics are we looking for as we’re building this profile of a potential ‘extremist’? What are we talking about, 'religious extremist? Are we talking about Christians, Evangelical Christians – what is a religious extremist? Is it somebody who is pro-life? I mean, where do you take this?
“You start looking at, okay well, obviously it’d have to be a White person, obviously. Likely male, Libertarians, wealth, anybody who loves freedom, liberty, maybe has an American flag outside their house. Or people who, you know, attended a Trump rally.
“Once you start walking this down the path, you see where it leads: to a very dangerous undermining of our civil liberties, our freedoms in our constitution – and a targeting of almost half of the country.”
