Conservative commentator and Blexit movement leader Candance Owens says her critics call her so many names that she’s made a game of it.

“You think calling me ‘anti-trans’ is going to shut me up. LOL I play Leftist Pokémon. I see how many ridiculous names you guys call me (gotta catch em’ all!) as I continue to tell the truth,” Owens tweetd Thursday.

“Gotta catch 'em all” is the slogan of the hugely popular Pokémon video game.

“Feel free to freak out again,” Owens invited critics in a Twitter post declaring that she does not support the transgender (trans) movement. Owens recalled how “Everyone freaked out” when she voiced her lack of support for the “Me Too” movement – and then came the uncorroborated accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh:

“Everyone freaked out when I was the first to say I didn’t support the #metoo movement. Then Brett Kavanaugh happened and I was right.

“Feel free to freak out again but I don’t support the trans movement. Leftist writing is on the wall again.

“This tweet will age well.”

In her next tweet, Owens accused the transgender movement of employing lynch-mob intimidation tactics to try to silence critics – adding that she’s unfraid to speak her mind, as she does in her book:

“Trans movement thinks it’s slick, but it’s become the new area of leftist lynchings if anybody dares to question the absurdity of its demands. But I’m never scared to go there. There’s an entire chapter in my book about it. It will age well. #BLACKOUT

When a tweet replying to her post accused her of “being anti-trans to promote sales for your book.” Owens responded by saying she considers the name-calling so laughable that she has made a Pokémon-like game out of collecting as many insulting names as possible – and challenged her critics to “get creative”:

“You think calling me ‘anti-trans’ is going to shut me up. LOL I play Leftist Pokémon. I see how many ridiculous names you guys call me (gotta catch em’ all!) as I continue to tell the truth. Anti-trans, literally Hitler, anti-black— YAWNNNNNNNN. So level one. Get creative.”
