Far-right provocateur Laura Loomer has been suspended by Twitter. The polarizing journalist is known for heated clashes with leftists and those who defend Sharia, the religious law derived from the precepts of Islamic beliefs defined in the Quran and the Hadith.
Some say Loomer, who is Jewish, goes too far with her attacks, labeling her as alt-right. Others say she’s spot on with her assessments. Apparently, Twitter has found a reason to permanently suspend her:
Many top conservatives on Twitter are avoiding the issue. Loomer is a polarizing figure. Some may agree with what she says, but they don’t want to be seen supporting a messenger who has been labeled as “the fringe.”
Others are standing against Twitters systematic censorship of conservatives.
“Once again Twitter has suspended a prominent conservative voices,” said Jack Posobiec, a host at conservative news channel One American News Network. “I looked at her Tweet myself, and Laura was speaking out against antisemitism. Why would Twitter suspend someone for doing that? This raises serious freedom of speech issues that are only going to get worse if they are not addressed.”
A favorite topic of Loomer’s has been the anti-Israel and antisemitic preferences of various media institutions. She has pointed to the hypocrisy practiced by mainstream media outlets, social media companies, and leftist activists who allow or even defend Islamic personalities that embrace sharia law while denouncing pro-Israel voices. Documentary filmmaker and fellow provocateur Mike Cernovich has a theory about why this is.
“The far left hates Israel. Simple and as tragic as that,” he said.
The “alt-right” label has become a powerful weapon wielded by the left to demonize conservative voices by association. It has become a broad label, taking strong conservatives who do not embrace bigotry and lumping them in with white supremacists, misogynists, and hatemongers. When someone is labeled as “alt-right,” it’s assumed they’re racist, sexist, and hateful.
This weapon is used most adeptly by social media companies. They follow the trends of labeling through their own platform and bow to the leftist personalities who dish out the label. Once a person is on their radar, companies like Twitter seek the first opportunity to silence them.
The definition of “alt-right” is a moving target. My definition is narrow – those who justify bigotry for whatever reason suits them. It seems that social media is defining it as anyone on the far-right politically, though the label is creeping closer to the center every day and is being applied to people who have never displayed or supported bigotry.
Concern over the migrant caravans is not bigotry. Fears of radical Islamic terrorism is not bigotry. Speaking out against sharia law is not bigotry. In fact, sharia law is quite possibly the most bigoted popular ideology in the world today.
We cannot have the necessary conversations if voices are quashed. If Twitter wants to suspend Loomer, that’s their right, but they have to be consistent. Targeting only voices on the right while ignoring hate from the left is disingenuous and hypocritical.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
