ONE of the Oxford Union’s latest speakers has controversial views on Hitler.

The world-famous debating chamber’s new term card features Candace Owens, former communications director of Turning Point USA, a conservative advocacy group in the United States, which has made headlines following accusations of racism.

Ms Owens, 29, defended the political ideology of nationalism by claiming Nazi Germany’s wartime leader Hitler wanted ‘globalism’.

She is due to take part in a debate on Thursday, October 14, at 8.30pm, opposing a motion for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Co-Chair of Oxford University Labour Club, Meg Howells, said: “We wholeheartedly condemn this invitation, which shows a continuation by the Oxford Union of platforming individuals with dangerous ideologies."

Previous speakers including Katie Hopkins have attracted demonstrations.

He will be returning for the No Confidence Debate, this time arguing for no confidence in the Government.

According to the Independent, Ms Owens said in London in December: “I actually don’t have any problems at all with the word ‘nationalism’.

"I think that the definition gets poisoned by elitists that actually want globalism.

Oxford Mail:

“Globalism is what I don't want. Whenever we say 'nationalism,' the first thing people think 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, OK, fine.

“The problem is that he wanted – he had dreams outside of Germany.

"He wanted to globalise. He wanted everybody to be German, everybody to be speaking German, everybody to look a different way.

"That's not, to me, that's not nationalism. In thinking about how we could go bad down the line, I don't really have an issue with nationalism. I really don't. I think that it's OK."
