  • After Joe Biden won the 2020 election and Donald Trump refused to concede, Owens promoted Trump's claims of mass fraud, saying, "the American election was clearly rigged." [1]

  • In 2021, while on Fox News, Owens implied, without evidence, that the Capitol insurrection was a false flag operation by the Democrats, saying, “The Reichstag fire [is] happening all over again in America. Democrats use it to consolidate power and to trample over the civil rights of half of the country”. [1]

  • In 2015, Owens supposedly left a “high-paying finance job” to start the website Degree 180, which offered consultation, production, and planning services. [1] The website included a blog, written by Owens, which frequently posted anti-conservative and anti-Trump content, including comments about Trump being racist and mocking Trump's penis size. [2][3] In a 2015 column that Owens wrote for the site, she criticized conservative Republicans, writing about the "bat-shit-crazy antics of the Republican Tea Party," adding, "The good news is, they will eventually die off (peacefully in their sleep, we hope), and then we can get right on with the OBVIOUS social change that needs to happen, IMMEDIATELY." The site reportedly shut down by the end of 2016, and Owens "came out" as a conservative on YouTube a few months later. [4][5][6][7][8]

  • In 2016, Owens wrote, "Call me weird, but personally, when it comes to my ovaries, I prefer to speak to my gynecologist. I don't think the leaders of the free world should have to be an expert on the issue, nor should they ever publicly voice their opinions." [1]

  • During a 2018 NBC interview, when asked about the 2016 election, Owens said, "Yeah, I didn't vote, exactly. This is the first time I've been politically inclined and active, and I think Donald Trump is a tremendous president. And I wanted to be educated. I wanted to do a deep dive before I started going out there and saying stuff as opposed to other people who mindlessly vote." [1]

  • Talking about the Covid-19 vaccine, Owens tweeted, "Not one person in my family will ever touch the Covid-19 vaccine. That is the decision that we have made, unabashedly, as a family... Medical freedom is an individual right that should never be infringed upon and any person who thinks otherwise has no place in our government.” [1]

  • In March 2022, with regards to the nomination Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court, Owens tweeted, "Just making sure we are about to appoint a pedophile-apologist to the highest court in the land... because she's black." [1]

  • "You can still say whatever you want to say on social media, but you have to be willing to stand by your words." [1]

  • "Body shaming isn’t cool. Neither is lying." [1]

  • In a video under the heading “It’s okay to be normal,” Owens stated her opposition to the fat acceptance movement and said she “could not disagree with that more” because she is “so sick of women putting their cellulite on the internet.” She also complained about “the spectrum of freaks and people like Lena Dunham who constantly want to show you their fat rolls and cellulite.” [1]

  • "I realized that liberals were actually the racists. Liberals were actually the trolls." [1]

  • "I'm telling you, Donald Trump is going to be the Republican president who's going to crack the black vote. You can put that in writing." [1]

  • Owens launched in 2016, a website she said would expose bullies on the Internet by tracking their digital footprint. [1][2] In response, people began posting Owens' private details online. [3] With scant evidence, Owens blamed the doxing on progressives involved in the Gamergate controversy. [4] After this, she earned the support of conservatives involved in the Gamergate controversy, including right-wing political commentators and Trump supporters Milo Yiannopoulos and Mike Cernovich. Subsequently Owens became a conservative, saying in 2017, "I became a conservative overnight ... I realized that liberals were actually the racists. Liberals were actually the trolls ... Social Autopsy is why I'm conservative". [5]

  • Owens described the #MeToo movement, an international movement against sexual harassment and assault, as "stupid", a "witch hunt", and said that she "hated" it. [1] Owens wrote that the movement was premised on the idea that "women are stupid, weak & inconsequential". [2]

  • In May 2018, Owens suggested that "something bio-chemically happens" to women who do not marry or have children, and she linked to the Twitter handles of Sarah Silverman, Chelsea Handler, and Kathy Griffin, saying that they were "evidentiary support" of this theory. [1][2]

  • In 2018, Owens warned that "Europe will fall and become a Muslim-majority continent by 2050. There has never been a Muslim-majority country where sharia law was not implemented." [1]

  • At the launch of the British offshoot Turning Point UK in December 2018, Owens made comments about Adolf Hitler. [1] She was responding to an audience member who asked for a "long-term prognosis" about the terms "globalism" and "nationalism", to which Owens replied, "I actually don't have any problems at all with the word "nationalism". I think that the definition gets poisoned by elitists that actually want globalism. Globalism is what I don't want. Whenever we say "nationalism" the first thing people think about, at least in America, is Hitler. You know, [Hitler] was a national socialist, but if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, okay, fine. The problem is that he wanted—he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize. He wanted everybody to be German, everybody to be speaking German. Everybody to look a different way. That's not, to me, that's not nationalism. [2]

  • In April 2022, Owens tweeted, "Our FBI is not stopping domestic terrorism, they are instigating it. This has become abundantly clear over the last few years. Up Next: January 6th." [1]

  • “The Biden administration is attempting to empower the IRS to monitor every single withdrawal, deposit, and transaction you make from your personal banking accounts, PayPal, Venmo, etc." This comment was rated "Mostly False" by Politifact. [1]

  • After mailed bombs were sent to Democrats back in 2018, Owens tweeted and then deleted, “I’m going to go ahead and state that there is a 0% chance that these ‘suspicious packages’ were sent out by conservatives. The only thing ‘suspicious’ about these packages is their timing. Caravans, fake bomb threats—these leftists are going ALL OUT for midterms.” [1]

  • "The left hates America, and Trump loves it, that's why people flocked to him." [1]

  • "I can't think of the last Asian that I ran into that talked about internment camps. But black people always want to talk to me about slavery." [1]

  • “According to its website Black Lives Matter, Inc is NOT a charity. It is a full-fledged corporation that does NOT have any locations.” This comment was rated "False" by Politifact. [1]

  • "That was the moment I wanted to use bitcoin: when I saw Harriet Tubman on a $20 bill. It's like, when you see all the slave movies, it's like, why you gotta keep reminding us about slavery? Why don't you put Michael Jordan on a $20 bill?" [1]

  • "If you look at things historically, Kanye West has really represented the battering ram against political correctness." [1]

  • "Play the black card expertly, and you can win awards, make millions - all the while claiming that the people who got you there somehow hate you." [1]

  • "For so long, black conservatives have not been able to have a voice; people who have bi-racial children, people in bi-racial relationships, it has been so black and white. I blame Obama. His eight years in office did a lot of damage in terms of race relations in this country." [1]

  • Following the January 6th, 2021 Capital insurrection, Owens accused Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of “faking her own attempted murder.” [1] Owens also claimed, without evidence, that Antifa was to blame for the insurrection, saying, "Call it a hunch, but my guess is there are still ANTIFA thugs in the mix." [2]

  • At the launch of Owens' "Blexit Foundation" in October 2018, Owens said that her "dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West" designed merchandise for the movement. But the following day, West denied being the designer and disavowed the effort, saying "I never wanted any association with Blexit" and "I've been used to spread messages I don't believe in". [1][2][3]

  • "Black Americans are the most murderous group in America.” [1]

  • "My freedom doesn’t end where your fear begins." [1]

  • During a 2021 episode of The Candace Owens Show, Owens said that "the “trans movement ... is actually satanic.” [1] Owens has also called the movement for trans equality “one of the most dangerous” and “evil” things that is happening. [2]

  • "George Soros is "funding the chaos" in Minneapolis via his Open Society Foundations." [1]

  • Owens has said that the left is "destroying everything through this cultural Marxist ideology." [1]

  • "Many people today attempt to draw differences between communism and socialism – there are none." [1]

  • In 2020, Owens challenged the existence of white privilege, saying, "If white privilege exists— why are Asian-Americans the most successful group in America? If we award people based on race, why are Asians the top-earners, with best credit and the highest educational achievements? It’s almost as if liberals are completely full of shit." [1]

  • In 2018, rapper Kanye West tweeted "I love the way Candace Owens thinks" — though he has since distanced himself from her. [1]

  • In 2018, after Ben Shapiro made a negative comment about Owens' Oval Office meeting with Trump and Kim Kardashian, Owens tweeted back at Shapiro, "1) Don’t talk down to me. Ever again. 2) This was not a photo-op. The POTUS takes a pic w/ every person that he meets with in the Oval Office. 3)You have a way of complicating everything in an effort to be right about things that simply don’t matter. 4) It’s getting old."

  • After Joe Biden declared his intention to fill Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer's seat with the first black woman, Ted Cruz mocked the idea, suggesting on Twitter, "@RealCandaceO for SCOTUS". [1]

  • In 2021, Owens called Chrissy Teigen a "malignant sociopathic narcissist" after Teigen apologized for some of her past tweets. [1]

  • In Dave Chappelle's 8:46 comedy special in 2020, which was dedicated to George Floyd, Chappelle said about Owens, "That rotten bitch, she’s the worst... I can’t think of a worse way to make money. She’s the most articulate idiot I’ve ever seen in my f**king life.” Afterwards, Chappelle jokingly apologized to Owens, saying, "By the way, Candace Owens, I’m sorry I called you ‘articulate.'” [1]

  • In a 2021 podcast episode featuring former Daily Show host Jon Stewart and Dave Chappelle, Stewart also commented on Owens, saying, “Her life is provocation, her brand is provocation, that’s how she makes her money,” adding that she offers “provocation and a troll that’s meant to increase brand recognition” rather than a “genuine offer of argument and exchange of ideas.” [1]

  • In 2022, Owens took an unprovoked shot at NBA star LeBron James, "To be clear, LeBron is a well-meaning person. I don’t think LeBron means to do bad. I just don’t think he’s that smart. I really do. I think LeBron James is low IQ." [1]
