Laura Loomer has been permanently banned from Twitter after she criticised Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
According to Twitter, Loomer was suspended for violating the platforms rules against “hateful conduct.”
The offending tweet read: “Isn’t it ironic how the twitter moment used to celebrate ‘women, LGBTQ, and minorities’ is a picture of Ilhan Omar? Ilhan is pro Sharia, Ilhan is pro-FGM (Female Genital Mutilation). Under Sharia, homosexuals are oppressed and killed. Women are abused & forced to wear the hijab. Ilhan is anti-Jewish…”

In a video posted from another account, Loomer insisted: “Everything I said is 100 percent true. There’s not one thing in that tweet that isn’t true… It’s not malicious. It’s not mean. It’s not hateful.
“So, now in America, if you’re a journalist that reports on issues of counter-terrorism or antisemitism or political issues like I have, you’re not allowed to report the truth anymore or else you’re going to be suspended.”

I am a gay man, who doesn't want to be thrown off of a building under Sharia Law.
Laura Loomer was standing up for women, gays, & her ban is proof that blasphemy laws are creeping into our lives.
