Outspoken black conservative Candace Owens said on Nov. 5 that it is time to fact-check the fact-checkers at Facebook, the Democratic activist juggernaut that everyone mistook for a social media platform.
Owens said she intends to sue Facebook’s fact-checkers for defamation over their censorship of her posts, according to FOX News and many other outlets.
In a video posted to her Twitter account, Owens said: “I’m going to put these suckers through discovery and figure out what the relationship is that they have with Facebook.”
Owens provided an example of censorship when she dared to speak freely about the mysterious coronavirus.
“Quite literally a doctor gave his opinion about COVID-19, which I shared, and Facebook issued a strike on my account because they said only information that they agree with about COVID-19 … was acceptable,” she said. Her Facebook page was demonetized as a result, she said, meaning she could no longer use the page to generate income.
Owens also cited President Trump, who has had several tweets flagged for information that Twitter staff deemed “misleading.”
“I decided I was not going to give up and sit down,” Owens said. “The fact-checkers. .. they are activists for the left that shut down your speech if they don’t like it.”
To file the suit, Owens said she retained a pair of attorneys, including Todd McMurtry, who was part of the legal team for former Covington (Ky.) Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann.
