Roundup: Conservatives Who Cheered (And Some Who Smeared) Laura Loomer’s Twitter Protest

Published

on

Thursday, conservative reporter Laura Loomer handcuffed herself to Twitter’s headquarters in New York City in an epic protest of her ban from the platform and the silencing of conservatives on social media.

Most conservatives supported the protest, as Loomer took a powerful stand for the First Amendment. But other alleged “conservatives” had some grievances over the protest or with Loomer herself, which they aired while sitting behind their desks like the do-nothing’s they are. Here is the list of the good, the bad and the ugly:

SUPPORTERS:

Michelle Malkin: Author and CRTV host Michelle Malkin has stood behind Loomer since she was banned.

“Go, girl. Loomer & team have affixed huge side-by-side sign to Twitter HQ doorway comparing Farrakhan anti-Semitic tweet allowed by vs. her anti-Sharia tweet that got her banned,” Malkin Tweeted during Loomer’s protest.

Malkin has also derided the weak “conservatives” who have been choosy about who they think should have First Amendment rights, mostly the NeoConservative crowd.

“All those who stood up for who are now mocking Laura Loomer for protesting her Twitter ban because she dared to criticize Sharia & Ihlan Omar: You don’t get it. You never will,” she Tweeted.

Dinesh D’Souza: D’Souza, too, shared his support for Loomer.

“Laura Loomer called me just after being released and I told her she scored a home run against the narrow-minded creeps who tried to strike her out. How great that she is trending #1 on a platform where she doesn’t even have an account,” he said.

He also made some of the same observations as Malkin regarding the weaker “conservative” crowd.

“Some conservatives are uncomfortable with Laura Loomer’s confrontational strategy, offering instead their own whimper In private and warn that the world is coming to an end strategy,” he said.

Danielle D’Souza Gill: Dinesh’s daughter Danielle attended the protest to support Loomer, and live streamed it on Twitter, helping it trend at number one nationally.

“Any of us could be banned next. But I’d rather be banned by Twitter for advocating for than sit by while an egregious double standard continues ,” she said in one of multiple Tweets from the scene.

Mike Cernovich: Cernovich Tweeted his support for Loomer during and after her protest, noting that Loomer has more courage than most conservative men.

Ann Coulter: The firebrand author also Tweeted her support for Loomer.

“What on earth was she banned for??? Go, Laura!” she said.

CJ Pearson: The 16-year-old conservative pundit came out swinging in favor of Loomer. Subsequently, his Twitter account was suspended for his “age.” Twitter claims the suspension was an accident, but insiders who are in contact with the tech giant told Big League Politics that is highly unlikely.

Jack Posobiec: Posobiec has always supported Loomer, and he continued to do so Thursday. He bashed the political left for opposing the protest.

“The Left cheered when an illegal immigrant climbed the Statue of Liberty to protest deportation When Jewish activist Laura Loomer protested censorship they mocked her appearance,” he said.

HATERS:

Ben Shapiro: Shapiro has always been a member of the garden variety NeoConservative crowd. He is weak-kneed and incapable of understanding that, regardless of how much he genuflects the political left, eventually they will silence him too. He will simply be the last to get eaten. He was triggered by the fact that Loomer, a Jew, wore a yellow star during her protest.

“Three things can be true at once: 1. Loomer shouldn’t have been banned from Twitter. 2. Twitter is obviously looking to purge people with unpalatable political beliefs. 3. Wearing a yellow star to protest a Twitter ban is RIDICULOUS.” he said.

Kassy Dillon: Once part of the #MAGA crowd, Dillon has slowly pivoted towards NeoConservatism. As a former writer for her website, this reporter watched her sell out her beliefs during her last year of college in order ingratiate herself with Shapiro and the DailyWire. Now she is part of the cocktail conservative crowd and works for Shapiro’s site.

“Honestly impressed by how long this filibuster has been going. She’s been shouting for about an hour. Someone give her Green Eggs & Ham,” she said sarcastically.

“I don’t know how much longer I can listen to this. Her voice is piercing. I get why she’s upset, sure, but chaining yourself to private property is a bad move,” she Tweeted later.

Leave it to the loser “conservatives” to complain about Loomer’s voice from inside their cozy offices while Loomer actually takes a stand for the conservative value of freedom of expression.

Kyle Kashuv: The Parkland shooting survivor, too, is enamored with the Shapiro brand of conservatism. (You might be noticing a trend here). The high-schooler called Laura Loomer an “idiot,” and was also triggered by the Jewish star.

“Ratio me all you want, but Laura Loomer acting like an idiot and handcuffing herself to is crazy enough, forget about wearing a star that my grandparents who got burned alive were. Comparing being kicked off a private company’s platform to millions dying is despicable,” he said.

Kashuv might want to brush up on his history. Free expression was banned prior the totalitarian takeover by the Nazis, and of course, the Holocaust. History tends to provide clues about the future.

A note to conservatives who care about the First Amendment and the ability to speak freely: Whether or not you like Loomer, she has been unjustly shunned from public discourse. If something is not changed, we will all be next.
