Candace Owens has made efforts throughout the pandemic to discredit medical professionals and oppose restrictions and precautions, often under the guise of ‘just asking questions.’ She’s now at the forefront of the anti-vax movement, even releasing a “documentary” sharing her opinions on the safety and effectiveness of vaccinations — not just COVID-19, but childhood vaccinations and routine inoculations.
She’s also happy to make overt and direct accusations, though, as can be seen in the clip below. Q-anon adherents have claimed that hospitals were taking in patients and deliberately killing them for reasons ranging from “silencing” those who knew the “truth” of the conspiracy theory, to political partisanship, to, as Owens echos below, padding the death rate in order to convince people that the pandemic was serious, which could in turn be used to impose regulations and restrictions.

“I’m a big believer that they intentionally killed people in hospitals during COVID, they wouldn’t let family members in there to make decisions for them. I personally saw when I went to an asthma clinic, they would not give me an asthma treatment because breathing was not allowed, even though they had the nebulizer…they colluded to kill American citizens so they could fluff numbers and say that people died of COVID…from top to bottom, yea, our government wanted people to die. There’s no question. Because it fit the narrative.”
She goes on to add that people should face “long prison sentences” and “tribunals” for these alleged crimes, specifically calling for the imprisonment of Bill Gates and Dr. Anthony Fauci, and claims the government “needed people to just die for a while” so they could get emergency authorization for the vaccines, which she has claimed do not work.
