Candace Owens is striking back against Facebook fact-checkers.

Owens announced on Thursday that she is bringing a lawsuit against what Facebook calls fact-checkers but in reality are liberal activists who use their position to censor conservatives. Owens has had her Facebook page demonetized and she is suing the alleged fact-checkers as ma means of recovering her losses.

Owens said:

“It is time to fact-check the fact-checkers. I’m going to put these suckers through discovery and figure out what the relationship is that they have with Facebook.” 

“Quite literally a doctor gave his opinion about COVID-19, which I shared, and Facebook issued a strike on my account because they said only information that they agree with about COVID-19 … was acceptable.” 

You can expect the fact checkers to get a lot of help from Facebook. If Owens wins her lawsuit, Zuckerberg could be buried in lawsuits so badly that his great grandchildren will need lawyers. It could also cost him his Section 230 protection. That would be very costly for Facebook.

But, the thing that might really be worrying Facebook is that Owens can get depositions from the alleged fact checkers during discovery. They will have to explain what Facebook instructed them to do. Of course, the fact checkers could be doing this all on their own but that would mean Facebook is not providing any oversight.

Owens said:

“I decided I was not going to give up and sit down. The fact-checkers. .. they are activists for the left that shut down your speech if they don’t like it.”

The defendants include USA Today and Lead Stories Fact Checker. Fox News reached out to Facebook, Leade Stories and Gannett for a comment. None of them answered. Gannett is the company that owns USA Today.

The alleged fact checkers label posts “false,” “altered” and “missing context.”  When they do, Facebook punishes the poster even if they did not violate terms of service.

I wish Candace the best of luck and I hope she collects millions. That will throw their whole business model down the toilet.

  • How can I help, Candace Owens? Maybe when you’re done with Facebook, you can tackle Twitter. I heard Zuckerberg donated $400M to fund election officials. What does that tell you?

  • Best of luck!! I had a fact checker check one of my posts and the checker wrote in a foreign language!! What does that tell you!!

  • I know it’s such a shame that flagged all these false stories during the 2020 election. Make sure you ask them why they didn’t flag all the false stories during the 2016 election. If you need a reference go watch “the great hack” on Netflix.

  • I got locked out of my account for what Facebook called “HATE SPEECH”… I called the SNOW white devil. Then I shared a video from a History page about “The Badlands Guardian” petroglyph and Got locked out because this goes against Facebook community Standards somehow. Same with when I shared Gaia videos that talked about the Summarians, The Egyptians etc.

    • I got 30 day for “Correct, The AntiChist is male (he), ..but then you have the whore of Babylon, implying female” – 30 days – Hate Speech.

  • I’m sure that many people can help/support you with their own experience of FBs so-called fact checking. I shared the ‘Docsforopendebate.com’ letter on my FB page in September only for it to be censored because of their ‘Fact Checkers’. I researched the FC and discovered that there was only 1 person who declared it to be false, a Cardiologist. I put up screen shots of the so called FC on my FB page, FB removed the censor.
    I have screen shots of the whole saga if you need them, Candace.
    Best wishes from Australia.

  • Go!!!! Girl, I have admired you for some time now. You have an absolutely amazing way of making your point and getting the narrative across. You will be highly recognized as a speaker for the people. Keep up the great work and continue to climb the political ladder. I have faith that you can do what needs to be done in this sorely corrupt democratic nation. Good luck and prayers for you always!!!!!!!

  • I hope she goes after FB and I hope, in time, she goes after Twitter and the rest of them. I also hope Trump and his family accept the outcome of this election and take the gloves off…goes after everybody and anybody they can.

  • THANK YOU CANDACE! I had a post censored because USA TODAY said it was false. They gave zero evidence why it was false, just that it was false because USA TODAY said so. Candace, you are a champion. I’m behind you all the way , KEEP MOVING FORWARD!

  • Might want to raise the question in the suit of why FaceBook did no fact checking on the media announcements Saturday Nov. 7th, when they said Biden had won. When the Fact was that the election still had not been decided legally.

  • Greece has had a problem with the fact-checkers that insist on blocking all uploads to facebook, or run videos on youtube, they have formed companies that are contracted to block all views not in conformance with the globalist agenda. If a class action lawsuit is going to be formed, we are willing to give Candice Owen a platform from which to speak with a view to obtaining information, evidence, witnesses and sword statements.

    The Greek fact checkers are known as “Ellinika Hoaxes”.

    We need to assist the efforts of Candice Owen worldwide, and get some international results.

  • You go Candace Owens.
    Praying for you!
    Thank you for standing up for truth!

    Just wanted to comment this message to you on Facebook, does not allow me to. Coincidence?!?

  • We should embrace the silliness of “fact checking” by turning it into a joke.

    Basically, we should post as many stupid, silly, and outrageous things just get the fact checkers to engage. Just post a silly article and write words like vote fraud Bide climate change false.

    The article could be of cut kittens. If we laugh at them, they cannot be serious.
