Right-wing commentator Candace Owens launched a vicious tirade toward transgender individuals on Tuesday's edition of her Daily Wire show while declaring that protests against Republican efforts to strip LGBTQ+ Americans of their rights are the same as the January 6th, 2021 insurrection at the United States Capitol.

"Speaking of the trans agenda, January 6th has happened again, except nobody cares because it's trans individuals that are doing it. The Trans Lives Matter protesters decided to occupy the Oklahoma Capitol building to fight GOP bills that ban gender-conforming surgery for people that are under the age of 21. So that – of course, that should be banned. If you are the age 21, you should not be – honestly, you should never be allowed," Owens began. "I would go a little further. Oklahoma, if you really want to do something, just ban it altogether. But trans people were very upset and they decided to storm the Capitol building."

Next, Owens revealed the depth of her anger toward trans people and then proclaimed that conservatives are victims.

"So, I'm just going to come right out and say this because it needs to be said. I have such great contempt for trans individuals and everything that they are doing right now in our society. To me, I've yet to meet a trans person that I thought was a good individual. Go ahead, you can use that clip verbatim. Circulate it, George Soros and your goons because somebody needs to say it," she pontificated.

"This has gone on far enough, right? They are hateful, narcissistic human beings. It's very obviously – it's very obvious that they hate women, that they are misogynist at their core. I'm talking about men that put on lipstick and say, not only that they're women, mocking us to our faces, saying I'm a woman, I'm just like you, I can do whatever you want – but then taking it a step further in their misogyny and demanding rights to things that we have, right? Saying not only am I you, I'm a better version of you. I will crush you in your sports, I will do everything that I can to ruin your career if you think that there's something wrong with this, a la what happened to JK Rowling and people demanding that she has her career stripped from her because she doesn't consent to this, she doesn't consent to be made being made obsolete by this insidious agenda. Right? Not only will I do all of this, but then I will start to march in your capitol buildings and I will demand even more rights. I will demand the rights that we can start in the classrooms training up children to be brainwashed, to believe that they can pick their gender. To go under these procedures as young as possible, to go through with having their breasts removed, to do these hormone therapies," Owens continued.

"These people are demonic, ok? The trans agenda is demonic," she added. "Any actor, actress, individual, that supports this is supporting something that is demonic, okay? These are demons in our society, without question. And if you can stand by idly and watch this take place, to watch children that are being told they can remove their private parts, to watch people march into capitol buildings and demand that people under the age of 21 be allowed to ruin their perfectly good normal bodies for the rest of their lives, to take pills and to go through extreme bouts of depression – if you can watch all of that and stand back and say, yeah, no, I'm okay with it, all in the pursuit of equality because you keep saying that to make yourself feel good – you're a demon. And that is just the facts of the matter. And that is all that I have to say about that."
