According to Allum Bokhari of Breitbart, Facebook has demanded a federal judge in Miami to immediately dismiss a defamation lawsuit that Laura Loomer brought against them.
Facebook put forward the argument that its decision to ban her as a “dangerous individual” does not fall under the grounds of defamation.
Facebook filed a motion to dismiss where it argued that “calling someone ‘dangerous’— or saying that she ‘promoted or ‘engaged’ in ‘hate’— is a protected statement of opinion.”
Facebook called attention to how other platforms have banned her and stated that “this is clearly an issue where, at a minimum, reasonable minds can disagree.”
Additionally, the motion cited Loomer’s appearances with Gavin McInnes, another individual that Facebook labeled as “dangerous”, as a justification for deplatforming her.
Breitbart News exclusively revealed a year ago that Facebook takes into account off-site behavior to determine whether certain users get deplatformed.
Bokhari noted that Facebook engages in the monitoring of “the on-platform and off-platform activities of prominent political individuals in an internal file called ‘Hate Agent policy review’.”
Loomer is a candidate for Florida’s 21st district and is running in the Republican primary.
In 2019, Facebook banned her after she described Congresswoman Ilhan Omar as “anti-Jewish.”
Loomer told Breitbart News that “Facebook had no basis for designating me as a dangerous individual, and when you examine their printed criteria for their dangerous individual policy, it is even more evident that I don’t meet any of the criteria, which includes being a terrorist and mass murderer.”
“My legal team attempted to get discovery in this case, but Facebook objected, and they would rather make excuses for their digital inquisition.”
“I will continue this legal battle for as long as it takes until Facebook is held legally responsible for what they have done. If Facebook is truly innocent as they claim, then they should stop objecting to discovery and should immediately release the names and correspondence that occurred between everyone who was involved in designing and approving the ‘dangerous individuals and organizations’ policy at Facebook, and its application to the select individuals it was applied to.”
“We’re confident of ultimate success with the case,” declared Loomer’s legal counsel, Larry Klayman. “We have the support of the district of columbia who is arguing that there is political discrimination, and this is a case that will probably go all the way to the supreme court.”
Loomer is currently staving off an antitrust lawsuit against the Big Tech titans, which is currently in the D.C. circuit court of appeals.
Loomer and the conservative group Freedom Watch were originally slated to bring forward oral arguments for their case. However, the Wuhan Virus had initially delayed these proceedings and now they have been canceled outright.
The congressional candidate is among the political figures that Big Tech has targeted in its efforts to turn social media into a politically correct echo chamber.
BLP has reported on President Trump previously retweeting his support for Loomer.
But Trump can do something more meaningful by spearheading reforms that would strip Big Tech of its crony capitalist privileges and let free speech flourish on social media.
No Compromise Gun Lobby Calls Out Congress to Oppose Federal Gun Grab
On July 30, 2020, the National Association for Gun Rights raised awareness about gun control legislation introduced by Virginia Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.
Under the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020”, the federal government would implement a series of gun control measures that were recently enacted in the state of Virginia. In their press release, NAGR argued that this plan would “strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment and due process rights.”
At its core, the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020” will effectively nationalize Virginia’s new gun control laws. This will include the state’s “red flag” gun confiscation order, a one-handgun-a-month law, and a ban on private gun transactions between lawful gun owners. Virginia’s gun grabs kicked off protests from tens of thousands of gun owners at the state capitol in Richmond, Virginia early in 2020. NAGR noted that “Senators Kaine and Warner want to impose them on the rest of the nation.”
“Just when law-abiding citizens are purchasing firearms in record numbers to protect themselves and their families, tone-deaf Democrats are squealing for more gun control,” declared Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.
Brown announced that his staff is already working to mobilize more than 4.5 million National Association for Gun Rights members and supporters to reach out to Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell and the Republican-controlled Senate to oppose this gun control scheme and all other gun grabs.
“With police stations literally on fire and criminals taking over our streets, it should be clear that citizens are responsible for defending ourselves,” remarked Brown. “Gun control is never a good idea and pushing it right now is sheer insanity.”
