Laura Loomer Releases Statement on Twitter Ban
Prominent conservative journalist Laura Loomer was suspended from Twitter in late October before the 2018 midterm election.
Laura was confronting Democrat candidates at their rallies at that time.
Last Wednesday, Laura Loomer was notified her account had been shut down permanently.
Laura had 265,000 followers.
She was tweeting about Democrat lawmaker Ilhan Omar’s support for female genital mutilation (FGM).
For speaking the truth Laura was banned.
Truth is the new hate speech.
On Tuesday Laura Loomer posted a statement on Twitter’s decision to ban her from their platform.
My name is Laura Loomer. As many of you may have heard, I was permanently banned from Twitter for life on November 21, 2018, and then I was banned for 30 days from Facebook less than 24 hours later, in another example of collusion by tech giants to censor conservative voices.
What was my offense?
Did I spew hateful, violent rhetoric towards anyone as we frequently see leftist celebrities and politicians do online?
Did I post racist comments or call for genocide against a group of people?
Did I incite a riot or call for the President to be assassinated, like Leftists often do on Twitter?
I merely shared a fact. Yes, the truth can now get you banned for life from the Internet, in America, the land of the free, and the only country with a First Amendment right.
The tweet that Twitter decided to ban me for was a tweet full of facts about Sharia law. It was a tweet directed at Ilhan Omar, a newly elected Congresswoman, a politician, a public figure, which pointed out that her support of Sharia law does not make her an ally for gay people, women, or Jews, as Twitter would like you to believe.
This is the tweet that earned me a lifetime ban. Is this “hateful conduct,” as Twitter accused me of practicing?
