BREAKING: Conservative Journalist Laura Loomer Handcuffs Self To Twitter’s NY HQ For Being Banned – Staff Scuffles

Activist/journalist Laura Loomer was banned from Twitter for “policy violations.” Dinesh D’Souza stood up for her but Twitter wouldn’t back down. Now Loomer has handcuffed herself to the company’s headquarters in New York. Live video showed some sort of scuffle breaking out between what looked like Twitter staff & Loomer’s supporters as they attempted to hang a sign on the front of the building.

Loomer is currently the top trend on Twitter.

The Washington Times is reporting:

Laura Loomer, a far-right activist recently suspended from Twitter, handcuffed herself to the company’s New York City headquarters Thursday in protest.

Ms. Loomer, 25, started the stunt shortly before 4 p.m. Thursday, eight days after her Twitter account was suspended over a tweet criticizing Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar, Minnesota Democrat.

“I’m here for the millions of conservatives who have been censored by Jack Dorsey,” Ms. Loomer said after shackling herself to Twitter’s headquarters Thursday, referring to the company’s co-founder and chief executive.

“I put away the key,” she added. “I’ll be here as long as it takes.”

Twitter “notified the relevant authorities who are responding,” a company spokesperson told The Washington Times.

Ms. Loomer “was suspended for violating our policies,” said the spokesperson. “We apply the Twitter Rules impartially and not based on ideology. “

A self-described investigative journalist, Ms. Loomer previously served as a reporter for The Rebel Media, a far-right Canadian website, prior to linking up in 2017 with Project Veritas founder and fellow right-wing instigator James O’Keefe. She gained notoriety in June 2017 when she disrupted a Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar in New York City A self-described investigative journalist, Ms. Loomer previously served as a reporter for The Rebel Media, a far-right Canadian website, prior to linking up in 2017 with Project Veritas founder and fellow right-wing instigator James O’Keefe. She gained notoriety in June 2017 when she disrupted a Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar in New York City, and again by interrupting Mr. Dorsey’s appearance before the House Energy and Commerce Committee in Sept. 2018.

Ms. Loomer was suspended from Twitter last week after posting a tweet criticizing Ms. Omar, a Somali immigrant and the first Muslim former refugee elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, that accused the incoming congresswoman of being anti-Semitic and supportive of Sharia law and female genital mutilation. She subsequently threatened to file a lawsuit against Twitter, calling the company’s conduct “egregious” and a “tipping point” toward litigation.

Ms. Loomer had more than 260,000 followers on Twitter prior to being suspended from the platform last week.”

Dinesh D’Souza said of Loomer:

“Banned journalist Laura Loomer is now the poster girl for free speech in America. To stand up for her now is to stand up for our most basic liberties.”
