It appears that Rep. Maxine Waters’ (D-Calif.) call to harass conservatives and Republicans while they are trying to live their lives hasn’t fallen on deaf ears.
Conservative firebrand and “red-pill black” Candace Owens tweeted out two videos Monday morning supposedly showing protesters — with Owens claiming they were Antifa members — harassing and attacking both her and Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk “for eating breakfast.”
Protesters can be heard shouting on a megaphone, blowing annoying whistles, and essentially calling Owens and Kirk “white supremacists.” No word on whether the protesters recognized that Owens is a black woman.
Here are the videos where Owens alleges that “Antifa” attacked Kirk and her:

To be clear: ANTIFA, an all-white fascist organization, just grew violent and attacked an all-black and Hispanic police force.— Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) August 6, 2018
Because I, a BLACK woman, was eating breakfast.

As you could see, one of the protesters threw some kind of liquid on Kirk as they were approaching the restaurant. Some protesters were chanting something about attacking the “bourgeoisie,” which is very telling on what beliefs these protesters subscribe to.
Google has two definitions for “bourgeoisie,” one of which is attributed to “Marxist contexts.” “…(in Marxist contexts) the capitalist class who own most of society’s wealth and means of production,” the definition reads.
It’s not exactly clear when Owens and Kirk arrived to the restaurant to have breakfast. It seems as though the protesters and police were already at the location upon their arrival.
Whatever the case, it’s not okay to attack someone for having different beliefs. Kirk and Owens were there to eat breakfast. What makes shouting epithets at people okay when two people are merely trying to eat the most important meal of the day? What makes it okay in any case?
Not one to have her opinions shut down by anyone, Owens tweeted the following concerning Monday morning’s incident:
Is there a colored-only section for black police officers and black conservatives that I missed?— Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) August 6, 2018
I certainly didn’t mean to impose on the white liberals.
It’s sad to see protesters being more hateful towards people than the supposed “hate” they claim to combat.
