Even Laura Loomer’s critics can’t understand why Twitter banned her…

During the midweek Thanksgiving holiday Twitter decided to ban Laura Loomer over a tweet she’d written about Ilhan Omar and double standards. Here’s the tweet:

“Isn’t it ironic how the twitter moment used to celebrate “women, LGBTQ, and minorities” is a picture if Ilhan Omar? Ilhan is pro Sharia Ilhan is pro- FGM Under Sharia, homosexuals are oppressed & killed. Women are abused & forced to wear the hijab. Ilhan is anti Jewish.”

And a screenshot:

After Twitter banned Loomer, Facebook soon followed with reportedly no explanation:

As you know, Loomer is a controversial figure on the right. Her fanbase seems to revolve around the diehard Trump supporters, but dissipates quickly when you move into traditional conservatives.

But even her critics are backing her up here and believe Twitter has gone to far:

Right. I’m not sure what she said here that’s so out of line. Omar opposed a bill last year that would penalize parents who perform genital mutilations on their children. She is very anti-Israel, as her comments have demonstrated in the past. And she even voted against a bill to stop life insurance payments to those convicted of terrorism. Just what exactly did Loomer say that was so worthy of being banished? Was it the fact that Loomer noted that homosexuals are oppressed and killed under sharia?
