NOT AGAIN: Wacky Candace Owens Suggests Pro-Israel Lobby Assassinated JFK

50

(VINnews) — Candace Owens, the controversial podcast host with long a history of antisemitic comments and wacky conspiracy theories, claimed that AIPAC was behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. She also suggested that the US is being held “hostage” by Israel.

She made the comments while speaking with a former news host who was fired from The Hill over her own antisemitic views.

“It seems like our country is being held hostage by Israel,” Owens said on her YouTube show, where she interviewed far-left commentator Briahna Joy Gray.

“I’m going to get in so much trouble for that. I don’t care,” Owens said.

Gray was recently fired from The Hill‘s TV show, ‘Rising’, after aggressively cutting off and rolling her eyes at the sister of an Israeli hostage who said that Hamas brutally assaulted women during the Oct. 7 massacre and that people should believe those women. Gray had repeatedly cast doubt on the violence perpetrated against Israeli women during the attack.

Owens claimed that people were being fired because they were “not happy … when an innocent Palestinian kid dies” or for “critiquing a foreign nation.”

In addition, Owens said that “we know there was once a president that wanted to make AIPAC register [as a foreign lobbying agent for Israel], and he ended up shot…”

Owens was apparently referencing the fact that Kennedy wanted the American Zionist Council to register as a foreign agent. However, there is no evidence the group had anything to do with Kennedy’s assassination.

Owens used to work for Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire, until they parted ways, largely due to Owens’ track record of antisemitic comments.

Owens has a long history of using antisemitic claims and tropes.

After the October 7 terrorist attack on Israel and outbreak of war in the Gaza Strip, Owens spread vicious falsehoods about supposed religious apartheid in Jerusalem and she essentially accused Israel of genocide.

In the months since, Owens has lashed out against “political Jews” and theorized about a “small ring” of “sinister” Jews exerting influence in Hollywood and Washington, D.C..

Most recently, she liked a tweet promoting the blood libel that Jews drink Christian blood as part of certain religious ceremonies.

In November, she “mistakenly” claimed that Muslims in Jerusalem are confined to the Muslim Quarter and then feuded with her Jewish colleague Ben Shapiro over the war between Israel and Hamas.

“You cannot serve both G-d and money,” declared Owens in what was widely viewed as an anti-Semitic shot at Shapiro.

More recently, Owens has blamed rising levels of anti-Semitism on “political Jews” and suggested that there was a “small ring of specific people” in Hollywood and potentially Washington, D.C. who are “using the fact that they are Jewish to shield themselves from any criticism.”

“All of us Black, Spanish, Jewish, Chinese, Japanese, all Americans should want answers because this appears to be something that is quite sinister,” she concluded.

The list of controversial incidents involving Owens continued to grow longer with time. In one case, she “liked” an X/Twitter post that promoted the antisemitic “blood libel.” The post read, in response to Boteach, “Rabbi, are you drunk on Christian blood again?”

Being black and conservative wasn’t shocking anyone enough, so she decided to try to be a black female Nazi.

Candace Owens is the gift that keeps giving. Her stupidity is matched only by her anti-Semitism.

This new brand of conservative who is stupid and just thinks they’re right because people get angry at what they say is dangerous. Too many people lack critical thinking skills, and too many people gave Candace Owens a platform for too long.

When she first came to the Daily Wire she was more typically conservative. As time went on she drifted to the dark side. Sad.

Black people are particularly gullible vis-a-vis the most preposterous conspiracy theories. So I am not surprised with a black woman like her, even if she once briefly dabbled in conservatism.

Hey! How did she know?? It was my grandfather who did it! He told us at his last Pesach seder that he was the one behind the JFK assassination!
