Days after video surfaced of Turning Point USA communications director Candace Owens saying Hitler was “OK” until he tried to go global, Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs gave the far-right pundit some friendly advice: If you mention Hitler, you lose.
BuzzFeed News first reported that during the “disastrous” launch of right-wing student group TPUSA’s British launch in December, Owens made seemingly sympathetic comments about part of Hitler’s ideology.
Reacting to a question about nationalism, Owens mentioned the Nazi leader, saying he was not a nationalist because he was “national socialist,” and if he “just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, OK, fine.” However, she continued, the problem with the genocidal dictator was when he “wanted to globalize.”
