    Daily Wire host and author Candace Owens posted a video to her Instagram account on Friday fiercely responding to media smears over her commentary about the strict lockdown and COVID restrictions in Australia.

    Outlets like The Guardian and The Sun ran with headlines that took Owens' commentary from her show "Candace" out of context in order to make it seem as if she called for the United States to "invade" Australia. The politico noted, in her monologue, that she was being facetious, underscoring her anti-interventionist beliefs but also decrying the dire conditions Australians are facing relative to other places the U.S. has deployed troops to, namely Afghanistan.

    Owens said in the video that she plans on having her lawyers reach out to The Guardian over their "full lie," noting of the U.K.'s libel laws.

    "The U.K. has very strong libel laws, and you can't just lie like that. And I want a full retraction," the BLEXIT founder said. "To pretend that I was not joking, when I quite literally said, 'I say that in jest' - it's demonic, it's satanic."

    A misleading headline from The Guardian, published Thursday, said, "Rightwing pundit Candace Owens suggests US invade Australia to 'free an oppressed people.'"

    The Sun ran with a similarly misleading headline, "Firebrand host Candace Owens calls on US to INVADE Australia to free people from 'tyrannical' Covid lockdown."

    "The AUDACITY of Twitter and [The Guardian] to run with a FULL LIE of a headline that I suggested America should invade Australia," Owens captioned her Instagram response video. "I am in full dragon mode right now."

    "Are you awake yet?! Do you see the evil?" she added. "Do you understand there is value for these evil globalists in your perpetual state of fear?"

    Continuing her commentary in the video, Owens said the media smear is part of the "reason that this world is so divided, it's the reason why everywhere in the world people are being impoverished and imprisoned by their governments, who have launched a war against their own people."

    "It's an information war," she emphasized. "They are lying to you about what is happening everywhere. They are lying to you about your own body, right? You don't even trust your own body anymore. People are afraid when anyone sneezes. Because the government has launched a war, a propaganda war, a psychological war against its own people. Because fear gives them more power. That's the truth."

    During her monologue for "Candace," Owens said, "For the last 20 years, the United States has spent trillions of dollars overseas in Afghanistan for a war, which we lost, by the way," adding that the goal was to "spread democracy" and "free an oppressed people."

    "So I'm going to ask those same lecturing politicians and media members a question - when do we deploy troops to Australia? When do we invade Australia and free oppressed people who are suffering under a totalitarian regime? When do we spend trillions of dollars to spread democracy in Australia? ... Of course, I say that in jest."

    And here's what Candace actually said in her monologue:
