TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): The amount of money that's going to people to do drugs on the sidewalk, destroying our cities -- which they didn't build and they don't own -- you really realize, this is a manufactured crisis. 

CANDACE OWENS (GUEST): Gosh, Tucker, there is so much that I want to say here, I know that I'm not going to have enough time. You're talking about NGOs -- and I can't say to the American people enough -- if you really want to look into what's going on, please understand: Yes it was manufactured, yes this was a plot. Do not allow people to look at you and issue pejoratives like "You're a conspiracy theory," -- you can look this up yourself, a conspiracy theorist -- you can look this up yourself.

Take a look at the World Economic Forum. You know, the person that heads it up is a man named Klaus Schwab. He released a book in 2020 talking about how the COVID pandemic represented an opportunity for them to transform the world, for them to abolish private property. Look at everything they're doing and you understand this is what -- this is exactly what they're after, right? 

Eviction moratoriums, basically saying you have to allow people that are effectively homeless to live in your home. You're making entirely no money -- how are people going to be able to pay back their mortgages? They're not going to be able to, they're going to default. People are going to be scooping up their properties that were once owned by people, hard working American middle-class citizens, you know, that were maintaining their lifestyles before the government forced -- shut this down. 

Look at these inner cities and you go, "Why are they -- why do they want these problems? Why are they funding these problems? Why do they want drug addicts? Who on earth would ever fund the center to allow people to do drugs?" Well, you're looking at a government that wants a system of dependence. To me, I look at the situation and I say, "What we're seeing is a modernized system of slavery. This is slavery in 2020 -- in 2022 -- and they are proliferating this under the guise of COVID-19.

CARLSON: I, you know, -- I agree with you. I agree with every word of that. I wish I didn't, but I -- I sincerely do.
