Candace Owens has become an iconic political pundit over the last four years due to her excellent communications skills, and while most people first knew her as a Black Conservative activist, she has become even more widely known recently as a Free Speech advocate.
“Weeks ago, @Facebook censored a post of mine which truthfully stated that @JoeBiden is NOT the President-elect,” Owens wrote on Saturday. “So I got lawyers involved. Conclusion? @PolitiFact uncensored the post & admitted that they LIED by rating my post false. The fact-checkers are lying for Democrats,” Owens wrote in Twitter.
Owens recently had a very high-profile victory against those fact-checkers on Facebook, gaining her rapid notoriety because most Conservatives on social media, especially on Facebook, have had their posts censored in some way.
Owens recently posted, “Thorough article regarding what happened behind the scenes with @PolitiFact and what my desired outcome is with these left-wing loser activists, masquerading as “fact-checkers”.
She linked to a story by Amanda Prestigiacomo who wrote, Candace Owens Challenges Fact-Checker, And Wins , for The Daily Wire.
According to Prestigiacomo, “Conservative author and commentator Candace Owens challenged left-leaning fact-checking site PolitiFact, a partner with Facebook, over a “false” rating — and won.
Not only did PolitiFact remove their “false” rating and retract an article on why Owens’ video was allegedly false, but the site offered an added “correction” admitting their fault.”
From their statement:
“Correction: PolitiFact originally labeled this video false in our capacity as a third-party fact-checker for Facebook. On Nov. 20, an appeal to that decision was made on behalf of Ms. Owens. PolitiFact approved the appeal on Nov. 20, determined that a correction was appropriate, and removed the false rating.”
Owens posted the events and her victory:
“At 8 months pregnant, I, unfortunately, cannot fight on the ground alongside patriots like I am used to, but I am taking every measure to fight these communists in the courtroom,” the conservative firebrand added. “It is my goal to expose these lying ‘fact-checkers’ one by one. @JoeBiden is NOT the President-elect.”
This was Owens’ first victory. We will follow the developments of her next lawsuits against those who censor Conservatives who speak out.
