Candace Owens is catching backlash after she tweeted about Rep. Illhan Omar being deported.

"How many more protesters must be shot, rockets must be fired, and little kids must be killed until the endless cycle of violence ends?" Omar tweeted over the weekend. "The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable. Only real justice can bring about security and lasting peace."

But things took a dark turn when Owens replied to the tweet:

"In her defense, supporting terrorists in the Middle East seems to me to be the next logical step for a party that defends MS-13, demands open borders, and hates Jewish people and babies," Owens quipped.

"Separately, how funny if Trump just deported her?" she added.

Owens would not be being true to her character if she weren't tweeted something hateful and extreme. The far-right advocate was recently forced to step down from her role as Turning Point Communications Director following her remarks about Hitler.

“When we say nationalism, the first thing people think about, at least in America, is Hitler. He was a national socialist.” she said at an event in London launching the British chapter of Turning Point USA

“If Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, OK, fine,” Owens continued, while standing next to Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk.

“The problem is he wanted, he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize, he wanted everybody to be German, everybody to be speaking German, everybody to look a different way. To me, that’s not nationalism. So in thinking about how it could go bad down the line, I don’t really have an issue with nationalism, I really don’t.”
