The David Horowitz Freedom Center, a prominent conservative group that helped launch Owens’s career, posted an article entitled “Goodbye Candace” in Front Page magazine. The group said it is ‘disappointed’ in Candace, accused her of being obsessed with her own fame and implied that she is just chasing clicks.

“Six years ago, the David Horowitz Freedom Center invited the then little-known Candace Owens to its annual Restoration Weekend gathering of conservative movers and shakers,” it began.

“This really is the conference where everything started for me,” Candace later said. “I started my career, my political career on YouTube making just funny, satirical videos, and I got an email from David Horowitz inviting me to this conference, and let me just tell you what a big deal it was for me. I had no connections whatsoever.”

The organization appears to regret propelling Owens to fame, observing that while “the David Horowitz Freedom Center went on promoting Candace, honored her with an Annie Taylor Award for Courage in 2018, and hosted her at multiple events,” it is “so disappointed in what she has become.”

The statement went on to blast Owens for her false claims that Israel is committing genocide in Gaza and enforcing segregation in Jerusalem, saying that is rhetoric it expected from Hamas, Black Lives Matter, and The New York Times.

“Instead of focusing on the meaningful activism and defense of American values that brought her to our attention, Candace Owens has become obsessed with her own fame, stirring up drama to compensate for a lack of real achievement. Her comments about Israel and her promotion of people like Andrew Tate are part of a pattern. Candace tackles a subject she knows nothing about, never bothers to learn anything about it, and then rides the backlash by playing the victim to generate more fame and money.”

It added: “The atrocities of October 7, the appearance of ignorant mobs in the U.S. chanting “Hitler was right” and supporting the Hamas terrorists, and Candace’s moral equivalence about these neo-Nazis have changed the stakes. We have decided to issue the present statement because of her recent promotion of Hamas’ genocidal lies.

“For example, she has falsely compared Israel to the “segregated South.” This is the sort of ignorant ‘Apartheid State” slander that we expect from Black Lives Matter – and the Jew-killers of the Middle East.

“When Candace implied that Israel was engaged in “genocide” for defending itself against the atrocities committed by Hamas, that’s the kind of genocidal lie we expect to hear from Hamas.

“And when she suggested that to remove the Hamas auxiliary — Students for Justice in Palestine — from campuses would increase antisemitism, that’s what we expect to hear from the New York Times.

“Instead of focusing on the meaningful activism and defense of American values that brought her to our attention, Candace Owens has become obsessed with her own fame, stirring up drama to compensate for a lack of real achievement. Her comments about Israel and her promotion of people like Andrew Tate are part of a pattern. Candace tackles a subject she knows nothing about, never bothers to learn anything about it, and then rides the backlash by playing the victim to generate more fame and money.

“What a tragic misuse of talents.”

It concluded: “Goodbye Candace, we will continue to support those who truly strive to raise up the movement for liberty and life, not selfishly tear it apart.”

Forget about Candace, she’s not one of us. She’s might want to start by fixing the issues in her own race before sticking her nose into business that she knows nothing about.

I used to subscribe to her channel and early on even before Shapiro wouldn’t condemn her for sticking with Yeezy or whatever the heck that bigot name is the writing was on the wall she’s a black racist her true colors came out

I’m glad to see resistance against allowing antisemitism into normative right wing politics.

A decent first step to chasing her out of the conservative mainstream

People should have seen the writing on the wall when she destroyed Kim Klacik’s life with baseless accusations. Owens was incredibly jealous that another black conservative woman was challenging her for the limelight, so she exacted swift vengeance. Owens in a vindictive narcissist that engages in school girl behavior. People should have distanced themselves from her a long time ago.

I was willing to give Candace a chance, but when I see icons of liberty and tolerance like David Horowitz criticize and condemn her behavior and comments I am forced to submit to greater wisdom. I hope Candace will have enough courage to learn the facts and apologize for her misjudgments. Jews believe in forgiveness.
