I'm covering today's House Judiciary hearing on white nationalism. The witness list includes Turning Point USA's Candace Owens, who says she's bringing a "special guest."
A Facebook representative claims that Facebook is "no place for hate." Facebook just banned white nationalist groups last month.
Google rep claims hate speech "has no place on YouTube." At the same time, the comment stream for this hearing was just disabled because it was filling up with racist / anti-semitic comments.
Candace Owens at the mic at the House hearing. Her message is, no surprise, that Democrats are the real racists and want to sow division, including "the tall hating the short."
Louie Gohmert is using his time at the white nationalism hearing to claim that it's a hoax that Trump said there were "fine people on both sides" at Charlottesville. This has become a big talking point on the right over the past few months.
Gohmert asks Facebook rep in white nationalism hearing why they're so hard on "my friends, Diamond & Silk."
GOP Rep. Ken Buck is a huge Candace Owens fans: “I think you’ve caused my friends on the left to go to their safe spaces”. He asks if she "triggers the left."
Jerry Nadler acknowledges that YouTube had to ban comments from the committee's livestream because of racists. Gohmert cuts in: "Could that be another hate hoax?"
House Republicans are incredibly mad that Candace Owens has been described in committee materials as "conservative." Two of them have complained about it so far.
GOP Rep. Greg Steube donates nearly all his time to Candace Owens to make whatever comments she wants.
Ted Lieu is playing Candace Owens' comments about Hitler to the whole hearing. Background: thedailybeast.com/candace-owens-…
Candace Owens responds to the Hitler recording: “I think it’s pretty apparent that Mr. Lieu thinks black people are stupid." Nadler cuts her off with his gavel.
