Candace Owens Censored by Twitter for Standing with Michigan Quarantine Protesters
Right-wing media personality Candace Owens has been censored by Twitter and locked off the platform for supporting the nascent protest movement in the state of Michigan.
“Apparently [Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer] believes she is a duly elected dictator of a socialist country. The people of Michigan need to stand up to her. Open your businesses. Go to work. The police think she’s crazy too. They are not going to arrest 10,000,000 people for going to work,” Owens wrote in her shuttered tweet.
OANN journalist Alex Salvi reported that Owens has been locked out of her Twitter account for making the post, and she is appealing the decision.

Protests in Michigan have exploded in recent days as the people grow increasingly enraged with the governor’s unlawful edicts shutting down the state:
Anti-quarantine protesters in Michigan are claiming that they were accosted by security personnel while protesting inside the Capitol against the shutdown that is crippling the state economy.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been the target of high-profile protests in recent weeks due to her restrictions on Michigan citizens. Her goons have hassled Michigan residents for boating, cited people for gathering outdoors in private backyards, and put thousands of small businesses out of commission. This caused protesters to gather outside of her taxpayer-funded mansion last week, and commence the historic “Operation Gridlock” display that has since gone viral and spread throughout the country.
Graphic videos have been posted on social media of protesters being physically removed from the Capitol premises. One protester, Michigan United for Liberty organizer Wendy Darling, received particularly harsh treatment. During one stretch of the video, she can be seen having a panic attack. She reported suffering serious injuries and needing to be hospitalized because of how she was treated by security personnel in the Capitol.
“I went above and beyond to get extra press credentials today and then they wouldn’t let us in and wouldn’t let the Capitol Police come in and took upon theirself to assault and battery me,” Darling said in a video address to her supporters describing the abusive treatment she received while awaiting her X-rays in a local hospital.
“The numbness from the panic attack is wearing off. In a lot of pain. Whole right side of body, head, neck, back, my right wrist is the worst from the Friction burns,” Darling wrote about her incident in the Michigan United for Liberty group on Facebook.
She added: “Completely unnecessary. Illegal for so many reasons.”
Big Tech wants to censor Owens because the Silicon Valley monopolists are trying to keep people scared and complacent during the coronavirus pandemic. Unfortunately for our Orwellian overlords, the protests are already sweeping the nation as Americans rediscover their lost love for liberty.
