One of the most glorious things that President Trump has taught every true conservative in America is that you don’t win by trying to play by Marquess of Queensbury rules against dirty street-fighting Democrats. The Democrats view this as a war and always expect Republicans to curl up in a fetal position and surrender on every issue (a move known as a “Full Romney”). Yeah, that doesn’t work for Donald Trump – and it doesn’t work for most of his supporters, either. Perfect case in point: Candace Owens, who just nuked Facebook’s “Fact Checkers” from orbit.
If you don’t know who Candace Owens is, congratulations on your media and pop culture obliviousness. The young lady is everywhere as a conservative activist these days. She has a video series with Prager University. She was a regular on Fox News in the days before the network steered its credibility into an iceberg on election night. And she was the founder of the Blexit movement in 2019, which was created to encourage black voters to get off of the Democrat plantation by voting for Donald Trump. (Which, you might have noticed, actually seems to have worked in the 2020 election.)
Candace and her husband are expecting their first baby sometime this month, so do say a prayer for a safe and healthy delivery for them when you have a moment.
PolitiFact is the official Facebook “Fact Checker of Truthiness” for the social media network. If you say something truthful on Facebook that makes the Democrats look bad, PolitiFact is going to give you a big stamp of disapproval and label you as a liar.
Back on November 7 (the Saturday after the election), the media held a 24-hour orgy to declare that Joe Biden was the “President-Elect.” As I pointed out on November 9, this was a total lie and Joe Biden is absolutely not the President-Elect.
He is not legally or constitutionally the President-Elect. He is not symbolically the President-Elect. He is not even metaphorically the President-Elect. NO ONE is the President-Elect before the Electoral College casts its vote on December 14 (if that even happens, the way things are going this year).
Candace Owens agreed with our take on that a few days later. She posted a video on Facebook explaining the exact same points as we made here, along with the message:
“Joe Biden is literally and legally not the President-Elect. So why is the media pretending he is?”
PolitiFact immediately slapped a “False” label on Ms. Owens’ Facebook video. They even published an article claiming that ‘Oh, nuh-unh! Joe Biden is totally the President-Elect because Tater Stelter at CNN says so and stuff! Plus it’s… like… totally a lie and stuff because reasons!’ (That’s a paraphrase of what PolitiFact wrote, so don’t quote me on it.)
Candace Owens sicked her lawyer on Facebook and PolitiFact, and they ended up not only retracting their own article and taking down the “False” label but also printed an apologetic retraction. PolitiFact admitted that they LIED about Candace Owens’s video.
We can’t remember the last time that’s ever happened with one of the major “fact checking” sites like Snopes or PolitiFact. They usually just ignore people and leave their fake “fact check” in place.
Good for Candace Owens! This is how we push back and fight these liars, while we are still able to do so. PolitiFact will now think twice before arbitrarily lying about Candace Owens or her work. We’d also note that more conservatives need to do this. It’s a headache, but it’s worth it. After Nick Sandmann took the Washington Post and CNN to the cleaners, the fake news media and social media companies are a lot touchier these days if anyone has the guts to stand up to them.
We’re proud to note that Google’s algorithms still state that all of our articles are “True” on this site, despite the fact that we are icky conservatives who deserve to die for our meanness. And how are McClatchy newspapers doing these days? They ran a big article a couple of years ago about how we’re all a bunch of Russian agents here at this site, publishing “lies” for Putin about Donald Trump. How are you, McClatchy? Still bankrupt? Ouch!
Congratulations to Candace Owens for taking on the fake fact check liars and getting them to back down. See how easy this is, everyone? FIGHT BACK. Our enemies wilt like delicate little flowers if you just show a little spine to them. Oh, and… Joe Biden is still not the President-Elect (nor will he ever be).
