Candace Owens, a frequent target of leftist attacks, has both given conservatives a perfect example of how to swing cannons towards the left and destroy them without even having to say anything. what originally.

What did she do? She, when the New York Times pressed her to get proof of her claims, just sent back some links of their own! Announcing the hilarious tactic on Twitter, Candace said:

Received an email from The NYTimes asking for comment on my “ideas promoting Ukraine as a corrupt country” – similar to Russian state TV.

I responded telling them that I actually got my ideas from the New York Times, and provided them with links to their previous articles. 😂

As you can read in the first image, the journalist asked Candace about her corrupt Ukraine comments with the express purpose of framing Candace, and thus conservatives, as Putin suggested. dared to point out the truth about Ukrainian society. Her email read:

Hello. I’m writing from The New York Times. We are working on a story on Russian messages that includes some of your comments.

We Are Not Friends has advanced the idea that Ukraine is a corrupt country, which matches comments we have seen from Russian state media.

I wonder if you have any more context or comments to add on this comparison.

Now, the question was ridiculous at first blush. Ukraine is clearly corrupt and has been known to be a corrupt country for quite some time. As The Guardian put it in a 2015 article titled “Welcome to Ukraine, the most corrupt country in Europe,” one article on corruption in Ukraine’s healthcare system:

While conflict with Russia heats up in the east, the lives of most Ukrainians are ravaged by corruption so rampant that even hospitals appear to be infected. Can anyone clean up the country?

[…]They argue that hospitals, like government agencies across Ukraine, appear to have been infected by corruption. And despite public outrage at the nation’s corruption, which has sparked two revolutions in a decade, no one can or is willing to do anything about it.

[…]Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index – the most widely used corruption gauge worldwide – ranks Ukraine 142nd in the world, alongside Uganda. In the latest ranking, it has fallen behind Nigeria.

So yes, Ukraine has been corrupt and that has been obvious for a long time. Although the Russians may say so, that does not make it inaccurate nor does it make it Russian propaganda.

Furthermore, what makes it all the more ridiculous, as Candace points out, is that it was the NYT who commented on Ukraine’s corruption! Is it Russia’s state media now? (No, it was clearly American state media when the Democrats were in power.)

Candace, in her response and brilliantly throwing the NYT’s own report on it, showed conservatives how to react when attacked by statements like the one the NYT has made: don’t back down, don’t give in. Just throw the truth back at them. Candace Owen hurt the NYT by using her own words against it
