Twitter Locks Out Candace Owens After Call To Defy “Socialist Dictator” Michigan Gov’s Lockdown Orders

Mediaite reports:

Commentator and right-wing Twitter activist Candace Owens has been locked out of her account, she says, over a tweet instructing Michigan residents to violate the state’s lockdown orders issued by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, and saying that the police won’t enforce the orders.

The tweet that was flagged by Twitter as having violated the site’s policies was shared on Saturday, after she sent it to several fellow prominent right wing accounts. Owens subsequently sent a statement to the extreme far-right MAGA blog Gateway Pundit.

From her message on Gateway Pundit:

Twitter has locked me out of my account but has decided to omit which of their policies I have violated. Apparently, encouraging citizens to go to work is a violation, but Alexandria Ocasión Cortez encouraging workers to boycott and protest is not.

I stand by my statement about Governor Whitmer acting as a dictator. Both the Sherriff Departments and the citizens, and the state legislature of Michigan are in agreement with me. I will not kowtow to a socialist world order that seeks to limit my constitutional freedom of speech.
