Wikipedia calls Candace Owens an “American conservative commentator, and activist.”
I call Samantha Bee a smarmy, left-liberal—one among many—who purports to do comedy.
Yet the aforementioned Owens calls Bee a “liberal thinker.” (I believe that such a pronouncement was made on Martha MacCallum’s “The Story,” or on another of those interchangeable programs.)
The above is a new kind of non-thinking.
So is the self-explanatory Samantha-Bee contretemps below:
Bee came under fire for calling Ivanka Trump a cunt. “You know, Ivanka, that’s a beautiful photo of you and your child,” Bee said as the photo flashed onto the screen, “but let me just say, one mother to another: Do something about your dad’s immigration practices, you feckless cunt! He listens to you!”
The moment faced harsh criticism, both from the White House, which called her statement “vile and vicious,” and from some on the left, who argued that calling women “cunts” reduces them to their genitalia and is a slur that’s meant to teach women that their bodies are disgusting and shameful. (Bee also received praise from others on the left, who argued that cunt is just a word and that the real issue is Donald Trump’s immigration practices.) In the wake of the backlash, Bee tweeted an apology to both Ivanka Trump and her viewers, saying, “I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.”
UPDATE I (6/13):
ON THE OTHER SIDE, THERE IS Chris Cuomo, part of CNN’s thought-police enforcement. Here he goes after Republican Corey Stewart, who’s for the working man, by… calling Stewart a white supremacist and a racist. Is that’s all the filthy libs have?
UPDATE II (12/11/018):
Candace Owens, Conservatism's 2nd young Russell Kirk (the 1st is Tomi Lahren), defines conservatism. It's "deep" ? https://t.co/I1VbyvwELk

MORE Little League cat fight. My term for the bickering between two “giants” of conservative thought: Candace and Tomi, aforementioned.
