FEUD ESCALATES: Ben Shapiro Slams Candace Owens: ‘By all means quit’

32

(VINnews) — The feud between Ben Shapiro, a frum Jew, and Candace Owens, who more than occasionally tows (and perhaps crosses) the antisemitic line, has escalated to a new level.

Shapiro, co-founder of the Daily Wire which employs Owens, replied to a tweet from Owens on Wednesday imploring her to “by all means quit” if she feels her work at the site “comes between” her and G-d — as Owens’ tweet seemed to suggest.

That was the tame part. Then Owens quickly shot back, “You have been acting unprofessional and emotionally unhinged for weeks now.”

She added: “You have been acting unprofessional and emotionally unhinged for weeks now. And we have all had to sit back and allow it and have all tried to exercise exceeding understanding for your raw emotion. But you cross a certain line when you come for scripture and read yourself into it,” she added, concluding, “I will not tolerate it.”

This is the latest round between the two popular conservative podcast hosts. On Tuesday, a clip surfaced of Shapiro calling Owen’s comments “disgraceful.”

Shapiro responds to a question about her and says, “I think that her faux sophistication on these particular issues has been ridiculous.” He went on to call her commentary on Israel, which was riddled with errors, “disreputable.”

Owens posted a message to Twitter in reply, quoting the New Testament, implying that if she promoted the viewpoints of Daily Wire (specifically regarding the Jews and Israel), she would be betraying her morality.

Shapiro replied to that tweet, “Candace, if you feel that taking money from The Daily Wire somehow comes between you and G-d, by all means quit.”

You are surprised that a Jew is acting emotional lately when his fellow brothers and sisters were just slaughtered?
Which part surprises you?
No jew would be surprised.
This says a lot about you.

Yup, we knew she was trouble, and only a liability, when she started defending KanYe after his despicable anti-Semitic tirades and threats.

They’ve had problems in the past (when she came to Kanye West’s defense after his anti-Semitic comments). She’s ignorant, and anti semitic, but there are contracts involved so I’m sure that complicates things. Otherwise Ben probably would’ve fired her a long time ago.

Early on I suspected Owens of being biased and dumped her channel as the old adage goes you can tell a bird by its feathers

The fact that Jewish people have to get personally attacked to see evil is beyond me.

“toes the antisemitic line” She has some talented feet!

FYI: the word should be “tows the antisemitic line”.

Interesting that no one discusses the subtle Jew Hatred that’s propagated by Tucker Carlson (who was the instrument in both of Ms. Owen’s apparent problems with Jews) He’s a bit more sophisticated than Ms. Owens (not that knowing that the Moslem Quarter is no more a ghetto than Harlem was traditionally Black, requires a high degree of intelligence or sophistication)!

What’s unhinged is the time Candace Owens took deep personal offense at seeing models in wheelchairs, whining about how the wokeness went too far. (Sure, maybe it’s going to far to insist that everyone has to be represented, but it’s also going to far to complain at seeing people represented. Especially when models in wheelchairs are demonstrating that a product is suitable for someone whose disability may stop them from using the competing product.)

She’s just a troublemaker. That is her shtick. She’s a “shock jock” whose thinks that because she’s angry all the time she must be smart. Shapiro made a mistake by hiring her. All she’s looking for is the camera.

Do copied and pasted words not come out in these comments? I’ll try again

The correct version of this phrase is always toe the line.
The phrase means “follow the rules or obey an authority.”
“Tow the line” is a misspelling based on “toe” and “tow” sounding the same, but “tow the line” is always an error.
The phrase comes from the idea of standing at the starting line before a race (i.e., getting as close as possible without overstepping the mark).

The Daily Wire isn’t a Jewish media company, so Shapiro has to be more discreet.

All reinforces to me how careful we need to be not to be fooled by sweet talk, esp. coming from politicians who seek our support. (becoming less and less). Insofar as Tucker Carlson goes, he WAS a public figure to admire, during his ‘FOX ‘ run’ – outspoken, articulate and openly ‘patriotic’, clean-cut, conservative and true American. How fooled I was! Maybe all above is the case – add on – Jew hater! Briderlach – open your eyes and look at what it says in Novi and in Duvid HaMelech’s pesukim in Tehillim ! And THOSE are the FACTS !
