I just have to say that I object strenuously to your use of the words – word “hilarious.” To me, this feels a lot like your reaction to being named in one of these manifestos. Now, you’re of course not responsible for the words of somebody writing that document, but I do think that laughing at it is a real problem, because these are real families that are impacted by this violence. And I think our efforts towards talking about this have to start from a place of mutual respect, which is what I’ve heard from this side of the table. Now, the reason we don’t have those numbers – I want those numbers as much as you do, but the number – to say the numbers don’t show something, is simply not supported by the data.
Okay. And I have 38 seconds left, Ms. Mulligan if you can, if you want to respond within that time.
The only thing I would add is that it’s in the name: terrorism, domestic terrorism. It terrorizes us, it terrorizes us in our homes, it terrorizes us in our schools. And to the points made by the other panelists, it is disproportionate to its impact on any individual life and it’s not…
[Jamin Ben “Jamie” Raskin (Chairman):]
You reject the idea it’s something that doesn’t matter or it doesn’t really matter?
Absolutely reject it.
Okay. Alright, so here is where we are, every member now has had five minutes…
Okay. And Mr. [Clay], so we have two members who have not, so I’m going to go to the two members who’ve not yet – and then we’ll give an opportunity for a closing thought to any member who wants before we go.
My next to responder is Mr. Meadows.
I though Mr. Meadows.
Mr. Meadows, okay.
Mr. Meadows next, then Mr. Clay, then to you Mr. Jordan.

Uh… Ms. Owens, obviously this is a gang-up on you; you know we’re giving these witnesses the ability to do a rebuttal on you. And so, you know, I find it unfair, Ms. Belew; I mean, you know, candidly, for you to show mutual respect and then you to go after Ms. Owens, it’s not appropriate. So Ms. Owens, you can have four minutes and thirty-four seconds to respond however you like.

Can you yield for a second?
Thank you. I believe, Ms. Owens, when you used the word “hilarious,” it was in referencing the fact that no one had asked you a question. It wasn’t to the subject matter of the hearing, is that right?
[Candace Amber Owens Farmer:] Source: LYBIO.net
That is correct.
And to have another witness insinuate something that is not accurate is just not appropriate, Mr. Chairman, for how witnesses are supposed to behave in front of this committee. I also think you didn’t say, “It doesn’t matter” about the subject matter of today’s hearing; you said there were ‘other’ subjects that matter as well, and maybe we should spend some time on those. Is that accurate?
That is correct, and they matter much, much, much, much more, and I have said that. I said that in my opening, and I will say it again: you know that white supremacy and white nationalism is nowhere near, ranks nowhere near the top of the issues that are facing black America. And the reason that you are bringing them up in this room is because it is an attempt to make the election all about race as the Democrats do. Please don’t cut me off.
Not in my case, Ms. Owens. Please do not characterize my motives.
Mr. Chairman, it’s my time. It’s my time.
You’ve got your time. Mr. Meadows, I’ll give you three more seconds.

Every – every four years you bring up race, and you knew exactly what I meant when I said ‘hilarious” and you just tried to do live. What the media does all the time to Republicans, to our President, and to conservatives, which is you try to manipulate what I said to fit your narrative, okay?
I was not referring to the subject matter that is “hilarious.’ I said it’s hilarious that we are sitting in this room today and I’ve got two doctors and a Mrs. and nobody can give us real numbers that we can respond to so that we can assess how big of a threat this is, because you know that it is not as big of a threat as you are trying to make it out to be so you can manipulate.
And the audacity of you to bring up the Christchurch shooting manifesto and make it seem as if I laughed at people who were slaughtered by a homicidal maniac, is in my opinion absolutely despicable. And I think that we should be above that. To try to assign reality or any meaning to a homicide – homicidal maniac writing a manifesto, which, by the way, let the record show also cited Spyro the Dragon, the child’s cartoon, as a source of inspiration. He also cited Nelson Mandela as a source of information.
I don’t think – I don’t think that Nelson Mandela has inspired mosque shootings; you can correct me if you think I’m wrong. You would rather assign meaning to a homicidal maniac than to actually address the things that I said that are actually harming black America; number one: father absence; number two: the education system and illiteracy rate.
Illegal immigration ranks high; abortion ranks high; white supremacy and white nationalism, if I had to make a list again of one hundred things, would not be on it.
This hearing, in my opinion, is a farce, and it is ironic that you’re sitting her and you’re having three Caucasian people testify and tell you what their expertise are.
You want to know what my expertise are? Black in America. I’ve been black in America my whole life, all 30 years, and I can tell you that you guys have done the exact same thing every four years ahead of an election cycle and it needs to stop.
I’ll yield back.
