CANDACE OWENS (HOST): Now, if you are an honest person, you did not think this tweet was antisemitic. You did not think that he wrote this tweet because he hates or wants to genocide Jewish people. This does not represent the beginning of the Holocaust. That's if you're an honest person, you will admit that. Right? If you're an honest person, when you read this tweet, you had no idea what he was talking about. I had no idea, when I read this tweet, what the hell he was talking about. This tweet inspired questions, not answers.
First and foremost, what is death con three? Did he mean def con three? Which would be a military defense position, not an offense – for those of you are offended. A military defense position. Is he tweeting this because he's reading the Newsweek headline calling him an antisemitic? Is he angry because he can't believe that he's not free to talk about people in his life who happened to be Jewish – right? – without being accused of antisemitism? Is he saying, I'm not going to shut up and I'm going to keep tweeting and I'm going to keep calling these people out, referring to his friends that he feels slided by? Is he talking about Jared Kushner and Josh Kushner?
If you're a liar, you'd say, no, I was scared, Candace. I actually thought that Kanye West was going to launch a military strike in Israel. Because that's the reaction, like, when I woke up, and I looked at the headlines, the reaction was, like, Kanye West had gotten together a military strike and it was going to go forward in the morning time in Israel. That was the reaction that was met with this tweet.
Now, once again, I want to make this very clear – this is not a defense of his tweet. This is an open question which never seems to happen anymore. It's like you cannot even say the word Jewish without people getting upset. In the same way that you're not allowed to say Black anymore.
