‘The Guardian messed with the wrong conservative this time.’ Candace Owens won’t be smeared!

Conservative political commentator Candace Owens slammed the biased media and torched the Guardian over a story that accused her of defending neo-Nazis,

The Turning Point USA communications director called out the publication and announced that she is taking a stand against media smear campaigns.

“I’m definitely going on the offense when we talk about smear and libelous claims suggesting that because I support my president I also defend Nazis or I promote white supremacy,” Owens told Neil Cavuto on “Cavuto: Coast-to-Coast” on Friday.

“I think for far too long conservatives have allowed this to go on. We have seen reputations ruined with these sorts of smears,” she said. “When you Google someone’s name and they have these harsh words and terms next to them and that’s what they are trying to do. They are trying to use fear tactics and I think it’s high-time we punch back.”

The pro-Trump political commentator didn’t just talk the talk, as she came out fighting when the Guardian published a piece this week writing:  “Owens was thrust into the spotlight after defending neo-Nazis and calling police killings of black men trivial on TMZ with Kanye West.”

“When did I ever ‘defend neo-nazis’?” Owens fired at the Guardian and writer, Jamiles Lartey.

“The inflammatory Owens used the TMZ appearance to come to the defense of neo-Nazis and call the police killings of black men a trivial issue.,” the piece stated. “She insisted that Trump has neither proposed harmful policies nor made offensive remarks towards African Americans.”

Owens found herself in the spotlight when she countered Black Lives Matter hecklers with some truth about “oppression” and gained the attention of rapper Kanye West who tweeted that he liked the way the young conservative “thinks.”

President Trump praised Owens on Twitter as a “very smart thinker.”

That apparently bothered Lartey who kicked off the article with a note about Trump’s remarks.

Owens tweeted later announcing she is putting together a legal fund “to go after publications that think they can smear and libel black conservatives.”

She promoted her plan and her appearance on Fox Business in later tweets.

Owens found support from plenty of other conservatives.
