Candace Owens: ‘We Need to Stop Calling Them Liberals and Begin Referring to Them As Exactly What They Are…’

Conservative firebrand Candace Owens dropped a tweet this weekend and she wasn’t playing around.

There is a brutal honesty there that is frequently missing in media coverage of left and right.

Now, needless to say, there are liberals who don’t seem to fit that description. But more and more, they seem to be a dying or succumbing breed.

From Biz Pac Review:

During a Democrat congressional debate in Arizona Thursday, audience members booed a House candidate after she expressed support for U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement. Would you classify the candidate, Ann Kirkpatrick, as a true liberal — or her hecklers as the real liberals?

The point is that there’s a difference between the moderate liberalism of Democrats like Ann Kirkpatrick, and the radical liberalism (or illiberalism) of her detractors. What makes Owens’ remarks compelling and possibly true is the fact that the latter form of liberalism is on the rise, whereas Kirkpatrick’s brand of moderate liberalism is decidedly on the decline.

More problematic you see the rise of people embracing things like attacks on law enforcement, like the ‘abolish ICE’ movement and illegal immigration while also attacking America and American institutions. And embracing socialism and communism.

One thing that’s often not reported in the protests you’ve seen from Occupy to those against Donald Trump is the presence of some of the same people on the far-left who push revolution and communism.

You saw some of these same people at the recent rally to support Maxine Waters where they burned and stomped on the American flag, chanting “America was never great.” Some wore the Rev Com (Revolutionary Communist) shirt, “Revolution Nothing Less.” Refuse Fascism, one of the main groups behind the protests against Trump, was formed by far leftists including members of Rev Com.

A poll from earlier this year found that a plurality of millennials would prefer to live in a socialist country, while seven percent would rather live to live in an entirely communist one. Even more disturbing is that one in five 20-somethings actually consider Joseph Stalin, one of the greatest mass murderers in history, to be a “hero.”

These are striking numbers. Also striking is the fact that so many liberals both young and old alike seem to hate America and Western culture in general.

Trump delivered a great speech in Poland, touting how they “could not be broken” by Communism.

“Just as Poland could not be broken, I declare today for the world to hear that the West will never, ever be broken,” he said. “Our values will prevail, our people will thrive, and our civilization will triumph.”

He was attacked by those on the left for the speech being a ‘dog whistle’ to the ‘alt-right.’

That indicates a failure to understand history and the context of what he was saying. But it’s also coming from some of the same people who like socialism, who says true communism just hasn’t been tried yet, who keep attacking America and who want the fall of Western civilization.

So what would you call people who think like that?


  1. Seeing as how the term liberal has changed over the past century I would agree that American Communist is appropriate for today’s radical leftists. A classical liberal is defined as this…”Classical liberalism is a political ideology and a branch of liberalism which advocates civil liberties under the rule of law with an emphasis on economic freedom.” That doesn’t sound like any so-called liberal I know today. Sounds more like a conservative or libertarian. Calling someone a “liberal” doesn’t quite have the sting it once did. Maybe the popular vernacular needs to change to Commtard.

  2. I’d call them the fulfillment of this Biblical passage: ““But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God”
    ‭‭2 Tim 3:1-4‬

  3. Communist is too kind. That implies they have a philosophy beyond the simple destruction of Western Civilization, beyond simple Hate. They don’t. They are Fascists, plain and simple, demanding that all the weak and simple minded obey them.

    It’s a little unnerving to see how far their hate has gotten them.

  4. The way I see it: if they don’t love America the way she is, then they need to leave. Stop trying to change a country that has been great for over 200 years. The Comminists are just jealous. That’s all

  5. Don’t waste your time sticking some spiffy sounding “ISM” on them. They love the sound of words like “social ISM”, “Marx ISM”, “commun ISM”, “real ISM” and any other pathetic excuse to crap on other people. They’re actually TERRORISTS of varying degrees of development!

  6. I believe many do not understand that there are committed communists in this country….has been for several decades. They knew it would take considerable time, but though indoctrination in the public schools, and the philosophy that if you get young people focused on sex and drugs, it can eventually lead to progress in which the government rules, not the people. This is a critical time in history. I don’t care what they are called…just as long as middle America continues to understand that the destruction of freedom (and America) is their goal. We must fight back through dialogue and elections. Also, monitor what is being taught to your children and grandchildren in the public schools.

    • “The government rules, not the people.” I like the way you saud that. So many people don’t get that. Liberlaism in the 60’s was all about freedom FROM government. But that quickly flipped to getting everything from the rich. And the only way to do that is by having a government strong enough to take it.
      Wake up folks! When that happens you go from many rich folks to a concentrated few who have ALL of the power. You’re no longer free!

  7. The new liberals are beyond reasoning with; they are obsessed their way being the only way. They refuse to look at history and the facts about the socialist/communist government they want to force on all of the United States. They create and believe their own lies, eventually believing them to be actual fact! The only way to stop them from this point, will be through extermination. We will eventually be forced to erase their gene pools from our country. Sadly this may be sooner than we would like to think.
