Right-wing Islamophobe and self-styled “citizen journalist” Laura Loomer has handcuffed herself to one of the doors at Twitter headquarters in New York City. She is standing outside with a small megaphone, yowling that she doesn’t have freedom of speech. Let’s repeat that. She is yelling into a microphone, handcuffed to a building in Manhattan, blathering about “Sharia law” and “anti-Semitism,” and her lack of “freedom of speech.” She is doing this is because, about two weeks ago, Loomer was one of the many right-wing misinformation bigots—along with dummy Richard Spencer—to be banned from the Twitter platform.
You may remember Loomer as the person who was booed out of the Public Theater’s production of William Shakespeare’s Julius Caeser at the Delacorte Theater in New York’s Central Park during her annoying protest of the production’s use of Trump as inspiration. You can watch the live feed of her current antics and see people sort of walk around her. Sounds like it’s going swimmingly.
The responses online so far have been fantastic.
