On Sunday, Candace Owen’s Twitter account was suspended after highlighting the double standard of Twitter by replacing the word “white” in racist tweets published by NYT journalist Sarah Jeong with the words “Jewish” and ‘black.’

Charlie Kirk, the founder of the conservative group, Turning Point USA, and Candace Owens, a representative of that organization, were harassed by Antifa leftists who swarmed like a flash mob while the duo were dining early on Monday morning in a restaurant. The white Antifa members screamed at Candace, who is black, that she is a white supremacist. Police officers called to the scene were black, and they, also, were harassed by the white leftists. [None of this makes sense, of course, except that the radical left goes berserk when black people, like Candace, reject their attempt to create race conflict as a means of dividing Americans from each other.] -GEG

Twitter suspended conservative commentator Candace Owens on Sunday for imitating New York Times editorial board member Sarah Jeong’s anti-white tweets, but restored Owens’ account access following a backlash on social media.

Owens, the communications director for conservative activist group Turning Points USA, on Saturday sent out a pair of tweets quoting Jeong’s anti-white statements — which did not earn her a Twitter suspension — but swapped out the word “white” with “Jewish” and “black.”

Twitter on Sunday suspended Owens’ account for 12 hours, citing her tweet about Jewish people as a violation of Twitter rules.

Twitter restored Owen’s access following a sharp backlash. The social media company chalked up Owens’ suspension as an “error.”

“Twitter takes reports of violations of the Twitter Rules very seriously,” Twitter’s support team wrote in an email to Owens, who shared it with TheDCNF. “After reviewing your account, it looks like we made an error.”

“This was our mistake and we’ve apologized to the account owner for the error,” a spokeswoman for Twitter told TheDCNF. The spokesperson did not say whether a human content monitor or an algorithm was responsible for suspending Owens’ account.

Owens’ objective in sending out the provocative tweets was to demonstrate what she sees as a racial double standard, she told The Daily Caller News Foundation in a phone interview. And she thinks Twitter proved that point beautifully.

“The thing is, I wouldn’t have minded if I was locked out, because I actually agree with Twitter that that language is inappropriate,” Owens said.

“My point in tweeting that and replacing the word with black and Jewish yesterday was to show how different that mentality is when you see it in that context and you see talking about Jewish people and predisposed to burning under the sun or black people saying they should live underground,” she said.

“It’s horrifically racist, but somehow we’ve gotten to a point in society where it’s OK to say the exact same thing about white people, and that’s problematic.”

According to this quote, Candace is in favor of CENSORSHIP:

“The thing is, I wouldn’t have minded if I was locked out, because I actually agree with Twitter that that language is inappropriate,” Owens said.

So, is it OK to censor inappropriate language? NO!!! What is Candace Owens’ agenda?
