It already happened once with Rep. Ted Lieu and now a self-described "free speech activist" Nathan Bernard has taken a shot at it. He took something Candace Owens was caught on video saying out of context and twisted it to fit his agenda. Actually, he more than just twisted it. He changed the words completely and acted like he was directly quoting her.
Owens was on video saying, “If Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, OK, fine.”
Check out the video:

She made things pretty clear. Nationalism has been given a bad name because it is associated with National Socialist Adolf Hitler, but in her mind globalism is the threat we need to watch out for.
Despite this, Bernard described Owens' quote as calling Hitler an "okay guy" and admitting she was cool with the genocide that went down within German borders.
Far-right maniac Candace Owens is currently testifying before congress about white nationalism. This is just two months after she explained that Hitler was an "okay guy" and Nazis doing a bit of genocide within their borders was actually fine by her. pic.twitter.com/CCop7i4r9A

Steven Crowder immediately put Bernard on the spot for quoting Owens as saying "Hitler was an okay guy."
Can you point me to where Candace Owens said "Hitler was an okay guy"? You know... since you put it in quotes? https://t.co/c3a9mBKsAZ

Mark pointed out how the self-described free speech activist actually doesn't like free speech:
Something tells me he doesn't like free speech...

Check out some of the responses on Twitter:
No, it’s morally right, which we have been told by AOC Is more important than being factually correct. 🙄🙄

It doesn't matter if she said it or not. Whatever a liberal says is the truth and factual. So don't look for the truth, just wait for your favorite Democrat to tell you what they know about the news, history, current events or how the gov't works they know the facts.

Pretty sure the part about genocide in their borders being okay is 100% pulled out of thin air.

I’m not a fan of Candace Owens or anything that comes from infowars, she is being targeted unfairly here. Context matters.

She actually said Hitler was "a homicidal, psychotic maniac" and there is "no excuse or defense ever for ... everything that he did," she clarified. https://t.co/JH3Csb88ir

She never said that.
You're calling an African American a White Nationalist.
Far right maniac how? I'll donate $250 dollars to charity if you show me any evidence of any of those things you completely useless Hack.

‘FaR RiGhT MaNiAC’, basically just a term for anyone that dares to disagree with modern liberals, it’s beyond tiresome at this point.

The left is so triggered by Owens that they are willing to make up lies in order to make her look bad. Nathan Bernard should be ashamed of himself for his outrageous interpretation of what Candace Owens said.
