You may recall the name Laura Loomer. She’s one of the white girls that somehow has enough people following her right-wing rhetoric that the rest of us have to hear about her sometimes. On November 1, 2017, she tweeted about Muslims “rubbing it in everyone’s face” by daring to exist in New York City the day after a terrorist attack.
Loomer earned a ban from Twitter in November 2018 for calling Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D) “anti-Jewish” and reviling the politician’s Muslim faith. In retaliation for the boot from the social media site, Loomer chained herself to the doors of Twitter HQ.
Well, she chained herself to one door, leaving the other free for employees and clients to come and go as they pleased all day. Furthering the insanity, Loomer wore a sweater with a yellow star (to represent those worn by Jews under Hitler’s Nazi regime) and held a large, The Price Is Right check-sized printout of the Tweet that got her account halted.
It was pretty funny.
Now Loomer is back in the news for jumping the wall surrounding Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s home in order to protest the lack of a border wall around the US.
Laura Loomer is currently screaming about the need for a border wall at Nancy Pelosi's house after illegally jumping her fence. You cannot make this shit up.— Ally Maynard (@missmayn) January 14, 2019
She also set up a tent with “IMMORALITY” spray-painted on its trim on Pelosi’s private property.
Now Laura Loomer is back and saying she tried to open the doors to Pelosi's house, but they were locked. This seems like an unwise thing to be admitting! pic.twitter.com/nPDMwiWANH— Will Sommer (@willsommer) January 14, 2019
Oh yeah, it was a live-stream of Loomer committing the crime. She was eventually escorted from the property by police and will face no charges for her misdeeds, which include screwing around with law enforcement by claiming they had no identification and “Gavin Newsome said we don’t need” them.
I’m old enough to remember when activists were crucified for protesting from the public way outside Tucker Carlin’s house.— Emily G (@EmilyGorcenski) January 14, 2019
Laura Loomer is now trespassing on the property of a senior government official. https://t.co/drndHN1lY7
So, Laura Loomer tried to make the case for a border wall, but all she really, uh, "proved" is that white women can safely trespass on private property without being arrested?— Charlotte ClymerðŸ³ï¸â€ðŸŒˆ (@cmclymer) January 14, 2019
Laura Loomer should be arrested for trespassing.— Leah McElrath ðŸ³ï¸â€ðŸŒˆ (@leahmcelrath) January 14, 2019
RT if you think Napa police should tase Laura Loomer… I’m tired of this child.— Montel Williams (@Montel_Williams) January 14, 2019
Wait. Laura Loomer is scaling fences and crossing the property boundary on Pelosi's estate, placing stress on local law enforcement so she can protest immigration by committing the crime of illegal entry?— Kaz Weida (@kazweida) January 14, 2019
Put her in an icebox for 72 hours and then deport her from California. https://t.co/sF1XWAAVdR
Twitter didn’t press charges against Laura Loomer for trespassing so she didn’t learn her lesson and jumped the fence at Nancy Pelosi’s house for attention. Now she gets off with a warning for repeat criminal behavior. If she was a black guy, the outcome would’ve been different.— Eugene Gu, MD (@eugenegu) January 14, 2019
Are we great now?
