Candace Owens Blows Up At “Mean Girls” After Losing In Court Against Facebook Fact-Checking

It’s not clear whether the “mean girls” Candace Owens is referring to are news outlets that cover her conspiracy theories, Facebook’s fact-checking team, or the court system that ruled against her, but whoever has upset her has apparently done so by calling her such names as “anti-vaxxer” and “conspiracy theorist.”

Owens suffered a loss on Tuesday, when, as the Washington Post reports, Delaware’s Supreme Court determined that a lower court’s dismissal of her complaint against two media organizations was correct. She initially brought the case against USA Today and Lead Stories, LLC for allegedly depriving her of income by preventing her from promoting her book on Facebook, and in the case of Lead Stories, for defamation.

Superior Court Judge Craig Karsnitz ruled last July that Owens had failed to bring sufficient evidence to support her claims, and on Tuesday, the state’s Supreme Court affirmed the decision to dismiss the case.

Owens lashed out on her social media, complaining about the “mean-girl lexicon” of “state propagandists.”

It seems she’s getting a bit upset about being called “dangerously misinformed,” an “antivaxxer,” and apparently “literally Hitler.” No news organizations appear to have actually called Owens “literally Hitler,” although in a 2020 tweet she alleged that “conspiracy theorist” is the same thing.

Owens has definitely been called a conspiracy theorist plenty of times, most frequently when she espouses conspiracy theories. By contrast, in fact, it’s Owens who has brought up Hitler, speaking in defense of the term nationalist, as you can see in this 2019 clip.

“He was a National Socialist. If Hitler had just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, okay, fine. Problem is that he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize.”

So no, Owens isn’t “literally Hitler” and there’s no evidence that the media, the court system, or Facebook is calling her “literally Hitler” — but she appears to be a willing apologist for him, at least in the hypothetical case that he kept his policies and genocide in his own country.

And she’s upset that she’s being called an anti-vaxxer?
