Candace Owens, the African-American starlet of the conservative movement was smacked down today by Twitter. Owens, who served as the communications director for Turning Point USA, a large conservative media and advocacy platform said today she was banned from the service. Her sin? Telling people in Michigan they should start getting back to work and challenge the oppressive government of Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
“Twitter has BANNED me for telling Michigan residents that they should go to work,” Owens said today. “To be clear— Governor Whitmer is breaking the LAW, by defying the VOTE of her state legislature to re-open businesses. The Sherriff departments have even written saying that they will protect the citizens, uphold the constitution and defy her executive order. Why on earth would a tweet telling people to GO TO WORK, be a violation of twitter rules? This is an abomination of our first amendment rights!”
This week, after Michigan legislators voted to overturn Whitmer’s draconian COVID-19 lockdown measures, Whitmer instead extended her state of emergency through the month of May.
The biggest problem for Twitter and Whitmer is many in Michigan agree with Owens.
“My husband owns a construction company and it would be nice if he could go back to work. He’s miserable not working,” said Michigan resident Jennifer Eason. “He doesn’t believe in living off the government.”
“I live in Michigan on the west side of the state. We have had very little cases of the virus here but the whole state is shut down for the three counties around Detroit,” said Karyn Huzien. “We have had ENOUGH and are moving on with our lives!”
Maybe Twitter’s free speech lockdown against all-things normal is related to the fact that the company’s owner, Jeff Bezos has become $24 billion richer during the COVID-19 pandemic. Bezo’s master plan with Amazon was always to compete with brick and mortar competition. It was the underlying business model of Amazon when it first started as a company. Amazon started off by selling books and quickly put the huge brick and mortar bookstores out of business. Now, Bezos has a government-funded shutdown of his brick and mortar businesses in other industries. The return of business in any state in America is obviously bad for business and bad for Bezos, especially when it’s a strong, young black woman who has the power to rally the masses against a tyrannical governor who is helping the Bezos empire’s bottom line.
Bezos and Whitmer can’t have the people of Michigan breaking free of their plantation changes and they definitely can’t have a strong black woman leading the charge, or maybe this is just some off-the-wall conspiracy theory.
Think that’s bad? Look what’s happening in New Jersey where a Rutgers University gender studies professor coronaraged on Trump supporters.
