So you remember that Laura Loomer recently got banned from Twitter, permanently, for reasons that were lame and ridiculous considering that Twitter continues to allow Louis Farakhan to use it as a platform.
So today? Laura handcuffed herself to the NYC headquarters for a couple hours in protest. She blocked an entrance to the building and Periscoped it starting at around 3.45ET this afternoon. She hollered at Twitter employees, telling them they worked for an “evil” company. Ultimately, she asked police to remove her, and she was not arrested.
According to the sourcelink:
“I am not going to stand by as people like Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg [try to] silence the voices of millions of conservatives,” Loomer said.
She asserted that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey banned her as a “Jewish conservative journalist,” a phrase she yelled repeatedly while chained to the building.
Twitter released a statement during her protest, saying, “We have notified the relevant authorities who are responding. The account holder was suspended for violating our policies. We apply the Twitter Rules impartially and not based on ideology.”
Seriously, Twitter? SERIOUSLY?
Apparently, police didn’t allow journalists to approach Loomer while she was handcuffed to the building, but they did permit followers of hers to get the video out onto Twitter, which I have to say, is a KICKASS MOVE on her part.
Say what you want about her tactics, but this was badass. And everyone’s talking about it.
Laura Loomer called me just after being released and I told her she scored a home run against the narrow-minded creeps who tried to strike her out. How great that she is trending #1 on a platform where she doesn’t even have an account

To be clear:
Laura Loomer was bigger today than the Mueller indictment of of Trump’s lawyer that actually mentioned Putin and Russia
Let that sink in

She literally was wearing a Jewish Star while she was handcuffed to Twitter in NYC to emphasize the fact that she’s Jewish… yet you’re still calling her “far right”.

All those who stood up for @JesseKellyDC who are now mocking Laura Loomer for protesting her Twitter ban because she dared to criticize Sharia & Ihlan Omar: You don’t get it. You never will.

Laura Loomer got booted on Twitter and then become the number one trend on Twitter. That’s moxie. pic.twitter.com/pB2iq77E0q

If everyone was as courageous as Laura Loomer, conservatives would have a fighting chance for free speech on social media.

There’s zillions more tweets where those came from.
She got kicked off of Twitter, and is now Twitter’s number one trending topic. Is it crazy or is it, like Dave Rubin said, “moxie?”
