(VINnews) — Candace Owens, a black conservative with a history of sympathizing with antisemites, has done it again. Owens made multiple offensive comments and implied age-old antisemitic tropes.Join our WhatsApp group

At best, she displayed her sheer ignorance about basic Judaism, and at worst, she expressed heavily anti-Jewish sentiments, falsely claiming that Neturei Karta represent mainstream Charedim, Israel forces Muslims to live in ghettos, and Jews themselves are responsible for antisemitism.

Owens, who works for Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire, interviewed Jewish comedian and musician Ami Kozak. The topic, according to Owens’ own podcast description, was ‘the Israel / Palestine conflict and whether or not antisemitism is being weaponized in order to silence critics and bully people into compliance’.
As one Twitter user, who posted the videos, described: ‘Owens shows profound ignorance when speaking on the Neturei Karta. Comparing Jews against Israel to herself as a black woman on the right. She then asks Kozak if Jewish people are to blame when it comes to the uptick in antisemitism.’
Owens invoked Neturei Karta as an example that ‘Charedim’ are opposed to Israel as a Jewish state, and that the right to Israel is political but not Biblical.
Kozak replied by comparing NK to token white leftists at a BLM rally, who are used as pawns to claim that BLM represents the belief of mainstream whites.
The reality is that the Neturei Karta movement is evil, as it supports and empowers the Ayatollah and other antisemite terrorists. They happen to dress and behave in a way that resembles Charedim, however they are not accepted by any mainstream group of religious Jews, and it is questionable whether they keep the Torah at all.
Owens also accused Israel of being racist and implied that Muslims are forced to live in the “Muslim Quarter.” Kozak corrected her egregious ‘mistake’, pointing out that Muslims are not stuck in any one area and are allowed to live throughout the country, and the Muslim quarter is a neighborhood which is predominantly Muslim, similar to black neighborhoods (and presumably Chinatown).
Owens then asked whether Jews ‘in their emotional state’ are perhaps responsible for bringing antisemitism upon themselves.
In the past Owens has defended Kanye West, after he made extremely vicious antisemitic comments.

Ultra-Orthodox: We don’t think that there should be a Jewish state.
Candace Owens: So you’re saying that all Jews living in the Middle East should be murdered?
