Ben Shapiro Labels Candace Owens ‘Disgraceful’ for Taking an America First Position on Israel-Gaza War
Ben Shapiro is absolutely furious with Candace Owens for taking an America First position on the Israel-Palestine conflict and not advocating for America to fight Israel’s wars.
Even though Owens is on The Daily Wire’s payroll, Shapiro lashed out at her during an event on Monday night for her “absolutely disgraceful” behavior during the war.
Ben Shapiro slams colleague @RealCandaceO for her “absolutely disgraceful behavior” in front of a visibly shocked audience.
Shapiro goes on, saying “her faux-sophistication on this issue is ridiculous.”

“I think her behavior during this [Israel-Palestine conflict] has been disgraceful,” Shapiro said during a Jewish gathering in a video posted on TikTok. “Without a doubt, I think it’s been absolutely disgraceful.”
After presumably being asked if he can take her show off the air, Shapiro seems to have said, “Yeah, I can’t [inaudible] that.” (I think he said “pause” but the audio is quite poor.)
“Yeah, I mean she still works for my company,” Shapiro continued. “I think she’s been absolutely disgraceful. I think that her faux sophistication on these particular issues has been ridiculous. Everybody can see the moves that she’s making and the things that she’s saying and I find them disreputable.”
Owens’ “behavior” that Shapiro finds “disgraceful” has consisted of putting the interests of America First and not going along with Shapiro and Israel’s crybully tactics and SJW-style cancel culture campaigns to punish Israel’s critics (the same exact tactics Shapiro built his whole phony “conservative” persona off mocking and condemning).
Do you know which country you’re currently running for President within?
This is becoming insufferable. https://t.co/7ICayxcO0s

No government anywhere has a right to commit a genocide, ever.
There is no justification for a genocide.
I can’t believe this even needs to be said or is even considered the least bit controversial to state.

I agree with Queen Rania’s assertion that antisemitism is being weaponized in order to silence critics and bully people into compliance.
That Charlie Kirk, Elon Musk, and Thomas Massie have recently been smeared as antisemites is proof of this charge.
This is the same behavior… https://t.co/vVn1Demd8u

Owens has also had the audacity to stand up for the First Amendment rights of pro-Palestine protesters rather than go along with “conservatives” banning their student groups.
I will never accept the infringement of American rights. We need people in office who understand that and do not give in to smear merchant campaigns. https://t.co/JyraCO81NK

I’ll ask the obvious question here. Do people believe that in the future moves like this will increase or decrease feelings of anti-semitism?
Do you think these students are going to shut down and think “well— guess we have to support Israel now”?
This is a serious question. https://t.co/NTKz6kgiZZ

Respectfully, if you think it’s antisemitism to notice that innocent Christians were killed in an IDF bombing then you need to log off of the internet and have your brain examined.

I don’t know who needs to hear this today but it does not make you antisemitic to want to stay out of an overseas conflict.
Just like it did not make you a “russian puppet” to not want to send your hard earned dollars to Zelensky.
Stop the nonsense.

Shapiro evidently thinks Owens’ job is to be throwing emotional fits threatening the Samson Option to demand Americans get on board with fighting and funding Israel’s wars.

Seeing as how Owens has dared to advocate for the interests of America over the interests of Israel, her days at the Daily Wire are clearly numbered.
UPDATE: Owens appears to have responded to Shapiro’s attack with a quote from the Bible:
Christ is King.
