An evening with Charlie Kirk & Candace Owens. The Founding of Turning Po...

In the comments, Owens answered an audience member who asked for a "longterm prognosis" about the terms "globalism" and "nationalism."
Owens embraced the term nationalism; claiming the definition gets "poisoned" by proponents of globalism. 
She said:
I actually don't have any problems at all with the word 'nationalism.' I think that it gets, the definition gets poisoned by elitists that actually want globalism. Globalism is what I don't want. So when you think about, whenever we say 'nationalism,' the first thing people thing about, at least in America, is Hitler. You know, he was a national socialist, but if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, okay fine. The problem is ... 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.
Conservative Pundit Candace Owens Clarifies Viral Hitler Comment After Backlash

Conservative pundit and speaker Candace Owens has responded to criticism of recently unearthed remarks she made late last year regarding Hitler while discussing the term nationalism.
Owens was asked for her thoughts on the future of nationalist movements in December during the London launch of the British Chapter of Turning Point USA.
Owens, the director of communications at the conservative advocacy group, said “nationalism” has been given a bad rap before pivoting to the Nazi dictator.
