Conservative Journalist Chains Herself To Twitter HQ To Protest Censorship

Chained To Twitter
Many people are 'Chained to Twitter' in a much different way... Hahahaha!

On Thursday, conservative journalist Laura Loomer handcuffed herself to Twitter’s New York City headquarters… in order to protest the company’s censorship of conservatives.

Loomer, who is Jewish, wore a yellow Star of David on her coat, a reference to Nazi Germany, where Jews were forced to publicly identify themselves.

“I threw away the key, and I’m here for the millions of conservatives who have been censored by [Twitter CEO] Jack Dorsey and [Facebook CEO] Mark Zuckerberg,” Loomer said, to the gathered crowd.

Loomer had been permanently banned from Twitter after she criticized Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

“Isn’t it ironic how the twitter moment used to celebrate ‘women, LGBTQ, and minorities’ is a picture of Ilhan Omar?” Loomer wrote. “Ilhan is pro-Sharia. Ilhan is pro [female genital mutilation.] Under Sharia homosexuals are oppressed and killed. Women are abused and forced to wear the hijab. Ilhan is anti-Jewish.”

Loomer stood underneath a banner that compared her tweet to anti-Semitic comments by Louis Farrakhan, who called Jews “termites,” but has not been banned or even suspended by Twitter. She also held a sign that said, “Twitter: Jew Hatred? A-Ok. Nosey Jew? Banned!”

New York Police arrived at the scene, but did not arrest Loomer after Twitter said they would not be pressing charges against her.

Loomer’s protest ended at 6:20pm. Twitter has not reinstated her account.
