Report: Candace Owens Denied Covid Test By Colorado Facility Over Political Views (Video)

On Thursday, Fox News reported that conservative author and commentator Candace Owens was denied a COVID-19 test by a Colorado facility over her political views regarding masks and vaccines.

“We cannot support anyone who has pro-actively worked to make this pandemic worse by spreading misinformation, politicizing, and discouraging the wearing of masks and actively dissuading people from receiving life-saving vaccinations,” Suzanna Lee, co-founder of Aspen Labs wrote in an email to Owens.

According to Fox, Lee informed Owens that “her ‘booking’ was being cancelled and that she would be ‘denied service’ because of both her aversion to governmental facemask mandates and her analysis of the effectiveness of vaccination shots.”

A post shared by Candace Owens (@realcandaceowens)

HOLY CRAP!! I was banned from taking a Covid test because of my politics,” she wrote on Instagram.

She added:

So I am no longer allowed to comply with covid measures and responsibly test myself for Covid because…they don’t like my politics in Aspen.

Thanks @rocky_mountain_labs for partnering with a psychotic leftist activist named Suzanna Lee to keep your community safe— from those who believe in medical freedom.

This pandemic is so real and so deadly, that Covid facilities are now googling the names of people who book Covid tests to ensure they vote for Biden.

She also shared the email she received along with her response:

She later said the facility in question receives both state and federal tax money, and therefore had no right to discriminate against her:

She also discussed the issue with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson:

Fox News added:

Owens said she does not actually want to be tested for coronavirus but that because of sudden governmental restrictions on “bodily autonomy”, she has to get routine tests to be able to engage in normal activities.

“First and foremost, I’d like to not have to get COVID tested, but as you brought up in your previous segment – this is one of the only ways you can maintain your bodily autonomy right now and they’re saying if you do not get the vaccination then you need a COVID test to move. If you go to an event you need a negative COVID test; if you want to leave the country or fly,” she said.

“So I perpetually have to get tested to prove I’m negative,” Owens said, noting she has traveled to three countries and 23 states in the last two years for her work and leisure.

Owens added that Lee’s refusal of services begs the question as to the rhetoric of people like her who say it is “a pandemic of the unvaccinated.”

“If this is a real deadly virus – if the unvaccinated are the people that are behind this pandemic, people like me … and you really believe this, why would you prevent somebody from complying with local COVID measures and trying to get a test and do the right thing? That doesn’t make sense,” she told Carlson.

This behavior, she added, “defies the science [they] claim is so true.”

Carlson wondered about the legality of such a move, observing that there are laws prohibiting doctors from refusing medical care to illegal immigrants or people who show up at emergency rooms uninsured, Fox added.

But now, it seems that an American citizen can be denied medical care because of their politics or their choice not to get the COVID vaccine.  This type of discrimination, by the way, is exactly what many on the left — like Don Lemon — have been advocating for some time.

“This is not about health anymore, this is about politics,” Owens said. “These people are sadistic, they are sadists. They like to manipulate you, they like control. They don’t care about public health. This is a public health crisis she would say ‘you know what I hate Candace Owen but of course she is in my town I’m going to give her a test and make sure she doesn’t infect anybody else.'”

“You can’t get a COVID test and can’t have a credit card,” Carlson said. “This is getting really, really dark and I hope Republican members of Congress who still have some power would stand up for their voters.”

Good luck with that…
