CANDACE OWENS (TPUSA COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR): We love the police. Thank you for protecting us.
BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): They don't love the police. But you know what? They might have been following orders. A "go" sign was given directly and loudly by [Rep.] Maxine Waters [(D-CA)] a few weeks ago.
KILMEADE: They're doing what she said, am I right?
CHARLIE KIRK (TPUSA FOUNDER): They're following orders.
OWENS: Exactly what she said.
OWENS: That's where we're at in this country. We have to start considering rights for conservative thinkers.
KILMEADE: But the thing is, look at [Department of Homeland Security Secretary] Kirstjen Nielsen having dinner. Look at [White House press secretary] Sarah Huckabee Sanders having dinner. [Senior adviser to the president] Stephen Miller, they were outside protesting at his apartment. This is getting closer and closer to going really bad. [Rep.] Steve Scalise [(R-LA)] still recovering from injuries after being shot because he happened to be playing second base, practicing on his Republican softball team.
KIRK: And [Sen.] Rand Paul [(R-KY)] was mauled by his neighbor in a political hate crime. One after the other. And we as conservatives, we reject the victim status. Instead lets be victors and show up in huge force in November and not allow these radicals to regain control of Congress, because where are the Democrats denouncing this? Silence.
OWENS: I've been showing the truth, I've been telling the truth, I've been telling them about real Black history and showing that it was never the Republicans that were racist in this country. It was always the Democrats. The Democrats were behind the terrorism and the KKK. The Democrats are behind Antifa and the terrorism that is happening today.
