BREAKING: Laura Loomer Handcuffs Herself to Twitter’s Front Door in NYC to Protest Her Ban

Conservative journalist and activist Laura Loomer has handcuffed herself to the front door of Twitter’s New York City offices.

The police are on scene and threatened to arrest her if she does not remove the handcuffs — which she has refused to do.

Loomer has repeatedly asserted that she has thrown away the key to the handcuffs.

Loomer was banned from Twitter for criticizing Minnesota Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar (D-Minn).

In addition to handcuffing herself to the building, Loomer also brought blown up posters of her tweet and Louis Farrakhan’s tweet comparing Jewish people to termites — to highlight Twitter’s double standard on “hate speech.”

“I’ve been silenced in America,” Loomer said in a video posted to YouTube in response to the ban. She had over 260,000 followers on the platform.

Loomer is one of many outspoken right-wing figures who have been booted from social media platforms in recent times.

“We need to stop the bias,” Loomer shouted into a megaphone while cuffed to the building, accusing Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey of anti-Antisemitism.


Loomer has also joined a class action lawsuit against the platform and several others over their political bias.

“I found it necessary to join this lawsuit to end the discrimination by big tech social media companies against conservatives like myself,” Loomer said in a statement.

Shortly after 4 pm, the police forced Dr. Jane Ruby, who was livestreaming the protest, to move across the street.

“Either Jack Dorsey and Twitter hate Jews or they hate Conservatives — so which one is it?” Loomer shouted as more police arrived on the scene.

UPDATE: Shortly after 5 pm, an officer informed Loomer that Twitter is not pressing charges at this time and she is therefore allowed to continue her protest without being arrested.

UPDATE #2: Author and political commentator Michael Malice is now live at the scene and broadcasting on Periscope.

UPDATE #3: At 6 pm, Malice said that the police were preparing to cut the handcuffs off and take her to the precinct. It is unclear if she is under arrest.

 A few leftist hecklers were also on scene shouting at her.

UPDATE #4: Loomer was cut free by the police at 6:06 pm, Malice told his viewers that she was arrested. She was taken away without incident. It was later confirmed that she was not arrested.

“We then cut the handcuffs off of her and sent her on her way,” a police source told The New York Post.
