‘Candace vs Zuck’: Candace Owens sues social media fact-checkers

BLEXIT founder Candace Owens is suing independent social media fact-checkers as she and other prominent conservative voices online continue to be censored, especially during a presidential election. The lawsuit names Facebook fact-checkers USA Today and Lead Stories Fact Checker, according to Fox News.

“For the first time I think America is realizing how censored we are,” she told followers in a video posted across her social media platforms Thursday. “It’s supposed to be a free country. The President of the United States getting censored every time he tweets, Eric Trump getting censored, me getting censored, opinions getting censored.”

She continued, “So, if you, right now tweet that my ballot was stolen and it could be 100% true, the fact-checkers will come in and swoop in and you will get censored. I am not allowed to hit the retweet button on my account, I’m allowed to quote tweet this week, but I’m not allowed to retweet because it’s election week, and somehow automatically if you have a certain amount of followers you get censored.”

Owens, who has already empowered many young Black Americans to embrace conservative values, is trying to get every American to also wake up to a creeping Marxist movement in our country. She believes fact-checkers are a part of that push and she’s felt their push to quiet dissenting voices. Very recently, when she was demonetized by Facebook for not fitting the narrative, she was motivated to finally take legal action.

“Well, now that you guys are alive and realizing that we have an issue in this country and these people that are fact-checkers I decided months ago when I had an incident on Facebook happen where quite literally my opinion was fact-checked and then quite literally a doctor gave his opinion on 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 and then another doctor giving his opinion that the lockdowns were bad was not allowed to be on their website. So, Facebook demonetized my page and I decided that I was not going to give up and sit down because there is not a more remarkable time in this country for patriots to stand up and fight than right now when we are being turned into a Marxist, Communist, Socialist country right in front of our faces.”

Owens has hired Todd McMurtry, who represented Nicholas Sandmann and won his case against CNN, and John P. Cole, who won the largest lawsuit against big tobacco, to fight her case. She said the legal battle has already cost her about $40,000, so she is asking for donations from supporters through her new website ‘factcheckzuck.com.’

“Our freedoms are being stripped away,” the site reads. “The overlords of Big Tech are determining what Americans can and cannot say, share, like, and post. Support our legal efforts today as we fight back against Facebook’s fact-checkers, confronting those who are suppressing free speech, thought, and expression across our great country.”

REPORT: China has vast network of covert police stations around the world

China has a vast network of covert police stations abroad, according to a recent report by Safeguard Defenders, an NGO that focuses on human rights violations in China and other Asian countries. These police stations serve consular functions, but are also used by China to crack down on what the CCP deems “illegal” activity of Chinese nationals abroad. The police stations include at least 38 run by the Fuzhou City police, and 22 run by the Qingtian City police. Cities housing these police stations include New York, Toronto (which has three stations), London (two), Paris (three), Buenos Aires, Rio De Janeiro, and Tokyo.

Key findings of the report are below.

“Persuaded to return”

According to China, China has “persuaded to return [to China]” 230,000 Chinese nationals living aboard from April 2021 to July 2022 alone to face charges of fraud and telecommunications fraud. A Yangxia police station set up in Mozambique, for example, persuaded a Chinese national to return to China after being accused of stealing money from his employer. Chinese authorities also put pressure on the accused family to convince the accused to surrender.

Roughly 54,000 Chinese nationals were persuaded to return from northern Myanmar alone, in the first nine months of 2021. In July 2022, the government of Wenchang City warned that its citizens living in northern Myanmar must check in with their local police stations or face multiple penalties including blocking their children from attending urban schools back in China. Similarly, in February 2022, the government of Liayang City stated that Chinese “illegally staying” in northern Myanmar must return or the bank accounts of their immediate family members could be frozen.

The Nine Forbidden Countries

China has claimed that nine countries contain serious levels of fraud and telecom fraud perpetrated by Chinese nationals. Since November 2021, China has declared that Chinese citizens living in these nine countries must return to China immediately unless they have an “emergency reason” or a “strict necessity” to travel or stay in those countries. Those countries are: Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, the UAE, and Turkey. However, the report questions whether these countries are truly awash in such fraud, as most of China’s oversees police stations are in the West, and only one of the nine countries (Cambodia) has such a police station. Chinese staying in the nine forbidden countries, as well as threats to family members as stated above, creates a “guilt-by-association” atmosphere intended to repatriate the Chinese nationals.

Conclusion

According to the report, Chinese police stations abroad serve to bypass “bilateral extradition treaties or other mechanisms of judicial cooperation” to cooperate with CCP-linked NGOs which effectively “[sets] up an alternative policing and judicial system within third countries.” Instead of using international judicial cooperation, which establishes due process, the presumption of innocence, and the right to a fair trial, China uses the above “persuade-to-return” methods and transnational police stations to circumvent international law and coerce Chinese nationals to return to China for trials. These policies show the power of China’s long-arm oppression over its own subjects.
