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.
Twitter has suspended the account of conservative commentator Candace Owens for the following tweet, without providing her with an explanation.

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.
ByteDance Agrees to Sell TikTok After President Trump’s Threat to Shut Down China-Based Social Media App
Microsoft will be acquiring TikTok.
The Chinese corporation ByteDance has agreed to sell social media platform TikTok to Microsoft after President Donald Trump threatened to shut down TikTok in the U.S.
Reuters reported on Saturday that ByteDance caved to Trump’s demands for the firm to divest in U.S. operations of TikTok entirely. TikTok has been accused of funneling the personal data of U.S. citizens to the Chinese communist government.
“We are here for the long run. Continue to share your voice here and let’s stand for TikTok,” TikTok U.S. general manager Vanessa Pappas said in a video released on Saturday.
Under the proposed deal, Microsoft will be in charge of TikTok’s U.S. user data. The rest of the U.S. operations for TikTok are expected to be taken over by another corporation.
President Trump had previously threatened to shut down TikTok in the U.S. this weekend if they refused to change their business model to ensure that the personal data of U.S. citizens cannot be exploited by the Chinese.
“As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” Trump said to reporters on Friday, adding that he could do so with emergency economic powers or through an executive order.
Big League Politics has reported on how TikTok is being investigated by the federal government as a potential hazard to national security:
The U.S. government is beginning a national security review of the Chinese-owned TikTok viral video app.
Reuters reported on the beginning of the investigation on Friday. The U.S. Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States is inquiring into TikTok’s parent company, Beijing ByteDance Technology Co.
Specifically, investigators are said to be probing the company’s 2017 $1 billion acquisition of another app, Musical.ly. That app was combined with TikTok in August of 2018.
Foreign companies that acquire American technology entities are subject to review by the Committee on Foreign Investment. TikTok’s parent was never reviewed for its acquistion of Musical.ly, and is thus being investigated after the fact for any potential discrepancies related to their business practices.
TikTok has skyrocketed in popularity, becoming one of the most popular social media apps since its initial release in 2016. It boasts more than 26 million annual users, 60% of whom are between 16-24 years old.
Much of the content uploaded on the platform is innocuous, allowing users to make easily edited videos and viral content.
Senators such as Josh Hawley and Marco Rubio have expressed concern that TikTok’s owners could be cooperating with the Chinese government to surveil Americans and implement political censorship.
The founder of Musical.ly, Alex Zhu, began to report directly to ByteDance’s Chinese CEO, Zhang Yiming. He had previously reported to a lower-ranking ByteDance subsidiary.
Hawley has called for TikTok executives to testify next week at a Senate hearing in regards to American consumer data ending up in the hands of Chinese companies. Chinese businesses are required by law to cooperate with the nation’s intelligence agencies.
President Trump has demonstrated that his tough talk can result in action that will protect U.S. citizens from being sold out to Chinese communists.
