The City of Brotherly Love had no love for alleged “white supremacist” Candace Owens on Monday — a conservative black woman.
The communications director for Turning Point USA found herself face-to-face with Antifa protesters this week who screamed, blew whistles, and bellowed into megaphones while she tried to order breakfast in a Philadelphia coffee shop. The incident, which also featured Turning Points founder Charlie Kirk getting doused with liquid, was captured on film and shared on Twitter.
“To be clear: ANTIFA, an all-white fascist organization, just grew violent and attacked an all-black and Hispanic police force,” Ms. Owens tweeted. “Because I, a BLACK woman, was eating breakfast. Is this the civil rights era all over again?”

“They’re soft fascists! They’re soft fascists!” one man screamed.
Others in the crowd shouted “fascist piece of s—t! F— you,” and “f— white supremacy!”
The confrontation came just days after Ms. Owens was briefly suspended from Twitter for mimicking racist tweets by New York Times editorial board member Sarah Jeong.
“Jewish people are bull—t … like dogs pissing on fire hydrants #cancelJewishpeople Are Jewish people genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun? The above statements are from @nytimes editor @SarahJeong. I simply swapped out the word ‘white’ for ‘Jewish,’” Ms. Owens wrote.
Twitter withdrew its suspension as news of its decision spread.
Mr. Kirk told the Daily Caller that he declined to press charges.
Ms. Owens‘ tweet was shared nearly 15,000 times within hours.

Ms Owens recently infuriated America’s mindless left by correctly blaming Obama for the bad state of race relations in America today.
Candace Owens blasted former President Barack Obama on Sunday, saying that he caused “damage” to race relations in the United States during his two terms in office.
Owens, communications director for Turning Point USA, said that conservative African-Americans have long been ignored.
“It’s been so black and white, the conversation, and I blame [Barack] Obama,” Owens said on “Fox & Friends.”
“His eight years in office did a lot of damage in terms of race relations in this country.”
“Hillary [Clinton] didn’t help much when she kept calling everybody racist and sexist, so the language has changed and the rhetoric has changed,” Owens said.
Owens said Republicans “gave up” on African-Americans and didn’t embrace the black community.
“When I met with some of them, it was like an uphill battle.”
