Facebook Tells Federal Judge to Dismiss Defamation Lawsuit Against Laura Loomer After Labeling Her “Dangerous”

Published

on

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.

Man Who Brutally Assaulted Michigan Nursing Home Resident Arrested, Charged, and Named

The brute’s name is Jayden Hayden.

Published

The perpetrator of a horrific taped assault at a patient at a Michigan nursing home has been arrested, charged, and finally named.

Detroit Police arrested 20-year old Jayden Hayden of Ypsilanti, Michigan on Sunday morning. Hayden is being charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm, larceny in a building and two counts of financial transaction device, steal/retain without consent.

The financial crimes relate to Hayden allegedly stealing the credit cards of 75-year old Norman Bledsoe.

The conscience of the nation had been shocked when video of Hayden brutally assaulting the senior citizen in a nursing home bedroom went viral. President Trump himself expressed his shock at the callous footage, in which Hayden repeatedly punched and beat the U.S. Army veteran.

Hayden has apparently uploaded videos online of other despicable assaults against senior citizens.

Detroit Prosecutor Kym Worthy expressed her resolve to hold Hayden criminally accountable for the heinous crime.

The alleged actions of this defendant are truly and uniquely disturbing. We must be able to trust our loved ones in specialty care facilities. I truly hope that the facts of this care are one of a kind.” Hayden was arraigned in court on Sunday morning.

New facts of the case seem to suggest that Hayden himself was a short-term resident of the Westwood Nursing Center, as opposed to an employee of the facility, which some had speculated.

Hayden seems to express racist and anti-white beliefs in some of his social media uploads, stating that he believes that “black people are meant to rule the earth.” However, it doesn’t appear as if local authorities are treating the savage, cowardly assault as a hate crime at this point.
