Laura Loomer: Facebook Gave Soleimani a Platform to Post Anti-American Terror Threats, But Claims I’m ‘Too Dangerous’
Congressional candidate Laura Loomer, who is among the most banned and deplatformed journalists in the world, issued a statement pointing out the hypocrisy of Big Tech for censoring her free speech.
“Hold up,” Loomer wrote. “So Facebook thinks Myself and other high profiles conservatives are “Too dangerous” to have FB and IG accounts and they designated me a terrorist, but Soleimani is allowed to have an account where he posts terrorist threats!?! Wow.”
Former Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, who was obliterated via drone strike outside of a Baghdad airport last week, was given a platform by Big Tech to spread his message of terror and antagonize President Donald Trump before his explosive demise.
Soleimani once made a post on Instagram, a platform owned by Facebook, to his nearly 70,000 followers showing himself outside of a bombed out White House with the ominous caption: “We will crush the USA under our feet.”
He also sent other threats to President Trump on his Instagram account. “Mr. Trump, the gambler! Don’t threaten our lives! You are well aware of our power and capabilities in the region. You know how powerful we are in asymmetrical warfare,” he wrote in an Instagram post from July 2018, transcribing himself from a recent speech.
Soleimani was promoted by Facebook and Instagram while Loomer was choked off of the platforms for conservative wrongthink. They have even continued to banish her throughout her Congressional run, which could be seen as a form of electoral interference by the monopoly Big Tech oligarchs.
Loomer has filed a landmark lawsuit against the Silicon Valley titans to hold them to account for stripping her of her rights:
The tech behemoth Facebook has admitted that it is a publisher while defending its arbitrary censorship of banished journalist Laura Loomer, according to court documents.
Facebook banned Loomer’s account from their platform during a purge of popular conservative voices that happened in May. Others targeted by the purge included Milo Yiannopoulos, Alex Jones and Paul Joseph Watson. Loomer is striking back with a lawsuit that is unearthing some interesting revelations about the social media monolith.
“Under well-established law, neither Facebook nor any other publisher can be liable for failing to publish someone else’s message,” Facebook’s attorneys wrote.
Facebook actually has the audacity to claim that their 1st Amendment rights are being violated by Loomer’s lawsuit, in a total contorting of reality. They have filed a motion to dismiss the case.
“She claims Facebook labeled her as a ‘dangerous’ person who promotes hate – yet, the First Amendment has long protected such statements because they are opinions that are not capable of being proven true or false,” Facebook’s attorneys claim in their dismissal motion.
Despite being deplatformed by an Orwellian corporate conspiracy, Loomer is raking in big league cash for her run to be the Republican nominee in Florida’s 21st U.S. House district. Loomer hopes to unseat Lois Frankel, the Democrat incumbent, in next year’s election.
