Candace Owens will sue Facebook over its “blatant censorship” after the social media platform demonetized her page following her comments about senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) swearing into congress in 2017 as an “Indian-American.”

Candace Owens said that Facebook has suppressed her page after she commented on her thoughts on senator Harris being chosen as Democrat nominee Joe Biden’s vice president for the upcoming November election.

“I am SO EXCITED that we get to watch [Kamala Harris], who swore into congress as an ‘Indian-American’, now play the ‘I’m a black a woman’ card all the way until November,” said Owens upon hearing the news. “Fun times!”

I am SO EXCITED that we get to watch Kamala Harris, who swore into congress as an “Indian-American”, now play the “I’m a black a woman” card all the way until November. Fun times ahead! #MAGA

In her post, Owens included an Associated Press image from January 3, 2017, when Harris was sworn in as a senator. The Facebook post was later labeled as exhibiting “false information,” which was “checked by independent fact-checkers.”

According to “AP’s assessment,” in interviews, Harris “has regularly talked about how her mother, who was from India, raised her as Black.” The so-called “fact-checkers” now claim that “social media users are falsely suggesting that Harris only recently began identifying as Black.”

“I never said that Kamala never said she was black. I said she swore into Congress as Indian-American, which is true,” Owens told Breitbart News in a phone interview.

“It’s also my opinion that I’m looking forward to watching Kamala Harris, who swore into congress as an Indian-American now play the ‘I’m a black woman’ card,” continued Owens. “Fact-checkers can’t tell me what I’m looking forward to. That is the blatant censoring of an opinion.”

Other social media users are also posting side by side images from the Associated Press.

One pic is their headline from 2016 which says: “California’s Kamala Harris becomes first Indian-American US Senator.” The other images from 2020 says: “Biden picks Kamla Harris as running mate, first Black woman.”

The BLEXIT founder added that she will be suing Facebook over its censorship.

“Facebook is now hiding behind fact-checkers to censor people,” Owens said. “They say it’s third party, but these people obviously have to be in coordination with Facebook.”

“This is election interference,” she added. This isn’t the first time Owens has taken on the Facebook censors.

Last year, Owens was suspended on Facebook after posting about “liberal supremacists” and statistics regarding poverty rates in fatherless homes.

Facebook later restored Owens’ account, claiming it had “made a mistake.”

Adding to the misinformation is the DNC itself. The official Twitter account for the Democrat Party posted this tweet: “She was the first woman to serve as attorney general in California, and became the second African-American woman to be elected to the US Senate in 2016.”

As Candace noted, she does not have an issue with calling her “black.” However, it was due to the push back by GOP supporters that has stopped the Democrats from continuing to claim she is “African-American.”

Most conservative voters noted they are only playing by the new rules of “identity politics,” which is a staple of the leftists. Her own father took issue with Kamala’s antics of only bringing up her “Jamaican heritage” as a joke about pot-smoking.

“[M]y deceased parents, must be turning in their grave right now to see their family’s name, reputation and proud Jamaican identity being connected, in any way, jokingly or not with the fraudulent stereotype of a pot-smoking joy seeker and in the pursuit of identity politics,” Donald Harris said. 

Mr. Harris also noted his ancestors were slave owners.

“Speaking for myself and my immediate Jamaican family, we wish to categorically dissociate ourselves from this travesty,” he added. “My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss Chrishy (née Christiana Brown, descendant of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner.”

Candace Owens added that she will be setting up a legal fund in order to cover the cost of taking on Facebook with her impending lawsuit.

“The censorship issue is real and we haven’t done enough to fight it as conservatives,” she said.

That’s why it’s so important for GOP supporters to fight back at censorship. Politics is a “blood sport,” and as supporters of President Donald Trump, we do not have many friendly media outlets. We rely heavily on social media to spread our points and the news we don’t see on the big cable networks.

Thankfully, we have supporters like Candace Owens who have the resources to take on a social media giant like Facebook.
