Host of ‘The Candace Owens’ Show’ joins ‘The Ingraham Angle’ to discuss the Biden administration walking back their endorsement of critical race theory.
Candace Owens backs the ‘Freedom Phone’ that’s designed to promote free speech in fight against Big Tech.
CANDACE Owens has thrown her support behind the “Freedom Phone”, a new smartphone designed to fight back against Big Tech by promoting free speech.
The conservative firebrand endorsed the phone in a tweet on Wednesday night, writing: “[I’m] So excited that I partnered with a SOLUTION against Apple and Google.”
Owens endorsed the device in a tweet and on Instagram on Wednesday.
Owens also tweeted a clip from an Instagram live she’d done, talking her followers through the phone and how she came to endorse it.
She said she was furious that conservative social media app Parler was banned from the app store in the wake of the January 6 riots, in addition to former President Trump being banished from most social platforms.
The political commentator added that while many among the right bemoan big tech, insisting something needs to be done, “nobody actually does anything.”
Billing her and her husband, Parler’s new CEO George Farmer, as “Do people; not complain people”, she said they both reached out to various people, insisting a smartphone needs to be made that’s not controlled by either Google or Apple.
“A bunch of people contacted us saying they’re making a phone,” Owens said, adding they were sent a number of different concept handsets.
“Some were terrible. Some were worse than terrible,” she said before Owens was finally sent the Freedom Phone.
‘If it doesn’t help the nation, I won’t pitch it’
“I’m so excited,” she added. “You need to get this phone.
“I’ve been on social media for four years … I’ve never done a sponsored post.”
Owens continued: “If it doesn’t help save the nation, I don’t pitch it.”
In her post, she included a personal discount code for prospective buyers to use in order to get 10 percent of the new handset.
The Freedom Phone has been billed as an “uncensorable” device that protects a user’s privacy and political voice from Big Tech.
It was created by the self-proclaimed Bitcoin millionaire Erik Finman.
The 22-year-old founder told the John Solomon Reports podcast that with the Freedom Phone he was “basically creating something that is ‘unbannable,’ that is ‘un-censorable,’ that isn’t reliant on, you know, the Apple or Google app stores or … left-wing infrastructure.”
