WATCH: Candace Owens Rips Into Democrats Who Attempt to Criminalize Free Speech With New Bill On Tucker Carlson Tonight – ‘They Truly Want A Totalitarian Society’

Jan 19, 2023 | Political News

On Tuesday, conservative podcaster Candace Owens joined “Tucker Carlson Tonight” for an interview about a recently introduced bill by Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) that would criminalize “speech that vilifies or is otherwise directed against any non-White person or group,” or “antagonism based on ‘replacement theory.'”

The bill, titled “Leading Against White Supremacy Act of 2023,” is supposedly meant to “prevent and prosecute white supremacy inspired hate crime and conspiracy to commit white supremacy inspired hate crime and to amend title 18, United States Code, to expand the scope of hate crimes.”

However, in the process, it criminalizes the freedom of speech of Americans everywhere. It does this by not defining various keywords like white supremacy which, if passed, could be used by left-wing district attorneys to prosecute law-abiding Americans.

“So at the same time that they are addressing these big theoretical macro issues and changing the American criminal justice code to be race-specific, something that has never been, they are ignoring the collapse of the daily life for their constituents,” Tucker Carlson began his segment, asking, “You see this everywhere, what is it?”

“We don't know what it is. It does seem to be a very strange collision and seeing her put this forth, I am incredulous,” Candace Owens said in response on Fox. “Selfishly, I'd like to see it go in place for just one day because it would be brilliant for black conservatives. Because every single democrat would fall on their sword. Of course, they reserve the most hatred, the most vitriol for black conservatives. People like myself, Larry Elder, Clarence Thomas.”

“They would all be locked up federally, let me trust you if this actually got put in place,” she said about the bill. “I think this also yields more questions for me. I'm looking at this and I'm going ‘what are they possibly thinking? How could this work?' What about black-on-black criticism? Would they lock me up for saying something like ‘Sheila Jackson is fundamentally a low-IQ, hateful individual?' I'm just saying that I don't want to go to prison. I'm giving you a what-if scenario. If I did say that would I go to prison?”

“And how is this going to run parallel to their decriminalization efforts, right?” the Daily Wire podcaster questioned. “They don't want any black or brown in prison. They want them all to be on the street but at the same time, they would lock us up. And by the way, would this extend to an overseas policy? Would I be locked up if I said anything bad about the late Osama Bin Laden? Of course, this wasn't well thought through because this doesn't need to be.”

“We know that their every effort is aimed at censoring speech. The Democrats know that in order for them to be omnipotent they need to be able to control words because if they can control words they can control thoughts,” she continued, adding, “ultimately, what they are after is brainwashing. And by the way, they have been really good at brainwashing. You have people who are graduating from Harvard who actually believe that men can be women and women can be men and all we have to do is change our minds. They know exactly what they are doing, they know exactly what they are after and ultimately what they want is full power and control over every single person and their household.”

“And they will use law enforcement to do it. And the police, the FBI, and the courts,” Carlson said in response. “I wonder if we've laughed too much at the absurdity of all this and not internalized how deadly serious they are to use power to crush their political opponents.”

“I have been laughing but at the same time pointing people at the very real truth and said that what they truly want is a totalitarian society,” Owens warned. “They are following the playbook. Everything they are after. They are attacking religion, they are attacking the first amendment, and they continually want to remove guns from your household. What does that spell out to you? Where have we seen this before? In every communist society that exists. That has existed and does exist today because that's what needs to happen.”

“They need to remove individual power. What has been very interesting is to see how they are breaking down people's mentality. We are becoming a fundamentally weak country. You have people that cry at the drop of a hat because they've been misgendered. Of course, they know that these people aren't going to take them on in the future,” she explained. “Do you think that people are going to take on the government when they can't even take on themselves and look themselves in the mirror and say ‘you know actually I cannot be this person. I can't just wake up and say I am a man or a woman.' It is so Machiavellian. It is so important that we keep talking about it. You can laugh to stay sane but also recognize that something very real is happening in this country and it's dangerous and it's sinister.”

Democrats are once again proving that control of speech is paramount to their project to centralize government power in the hands of the few. Candace Owens hit the nail on the head and outlines their plan to go after law-abiding Americans who simply want to speak their mind. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee's desire to criminalize such behavior is criminal in and of itself.
