Candace Owens spoke out Tuesday on Fox & Friends against the actions of Senate Democrats, accusing them of “politicizing” sexual assault.
“We have reached peak lunacy on the left. This is, by the way, the most disgusting thing they have done yet,” Owens said.
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford publicly identified herself Sunday as the previously anonymous person who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of trying to rape her at a party in the 1980s when both were in high school in Maryland.
Ford’s accusation was made known by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who announced that she sent the tip to the FBI in July.
Owens, Turning Point USA’s communications director, said she has spoken out from the start against the #MeToo movement, and that in Kavanaugh’s case, it’s being “hijacked” by the left in order to block his confirmation.
“Any movement that is rooted in victimization is going to be hijacked and weaponized by the left, and that’s exactly what we’re seeing happen here.”
As Fox News reported, Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee have invited Ford to an open hearing to allow her to discuss her accusations.
Owens said on Tuesday that the accusations against Kavanaugh are “the next logical step” and Democrats will attempt to delay or block his confirmation “by any means necessary.”
“Any person that actually supports sexual assault victims should be speaking out against this, because this is absolutely … disgusting, despicable behavior, and someone should be held accountable for this,” Owens said.
