CANDACE Owens said that Washington DC was "more out of control" during the Black Lives Matter riots and Brett Kavanaugh hearings.
Protesters took to the streets last year following the death of George Floyd in May, who died after a white police officer knelt on his neck for eight minutes.
"As a D.C resident—our city burned for WEEKS this summer during BLM riots. They destroyed & looted private businesses for WEEKS," Owens tweeted on Tuesday.
"What happened at the Capitol last week registered as a 2 on a scale of to 1-BLM. Watching the media pretend otherwise is appalling brainwash."
The pregnant author went on to say she was "so confused" when her family were asking if she was okay during Wednesday's riot "and yet didn't ask over this summer when we were virtually under siege for weeks."
"Then I realized the power of the mainstream media. The violent BLM siege of DC was simply allowed," she wrote.
"I have been a DC resident for years and can tell you when our city was the most out-of-control, she wrote before listing examples.
"1) BLM George Floyd protests. Nothing compares. Our city was genuinely under violent siege for weeks. 2) Brett Kavanaugh hearings—they stormed the Capitol for days."
In October 2018, more than 150 people were arrested following demonstrations regarding the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Hundreds of protesters were arrested following Black Lives Matter demonstrations across the country.
Last week, at least five people died following the riot on the Capitol building, and numerous arrests were made.
Over the weekend, Owens claimed that Democrats are "starting to sound like ISIS" and won't make supporters of President Donald Trump "magically disappear in fear."
The 31-year-old tweeted on Saturday night in response to Former CIA Director John O Brennan's post about people looking to receive national redemption following the Capitol riots on Wednesday.
Owens, a 31-year-old conservative author, wrote: "Who the actual hell do these Democrats think they are?
"NO ONE IS ASKING YOU PSYCHOPATHS FOR REDEMPTION. We supported him then— we support him now.
"MAKE. AMERICA. GREAT. AGAIN. Take your brown-shirt approach to China."
Her tweet followed Brennan's post, which read: "Anyone now seeking national redemption by claiming to no longer support Trump must acknowledge how wrong it was to ignore & enable his corrupt, dishonest, & divisive agenda.
"Total denunciation of a despot’s legacy is necessary to eradicate any remaining malignancy."
A few minutes after Owens' first tweet, she followed up by likening Dems to a terrorist group widely referred to as Islamic State.
Owens wrote: "Democrats are literally beginning to sound like ISIS.
"'Recite the Quran or get your head chopped off, now!'
"Absolutely psychopathic. You will not make President Trump and his 75 million voters magically disappear or cower in fear."
