—our best explanation for her beliefs[1]

Laura Loomer is a botched clone of Lauren Southern,[citation NOT needed] former Project Veritas employee, current alt-right activist, Islamophobe, self-described "journalist",[2] and all-around idiot (though we're repeating ourselves).

Early "activism"[edit]

Loomer's first big stunt was a poorly-produced "sting" for Project Veritas in which she attempted to create a "humanitarian pro-ISIS" club at her school, Barry University.[3]For this, she was suspended and faced criminal charges.[4] She also has secretly video-taped professors and smeared them as ISIS sympathizers, breaking Florida law of filming without consent and also violating code of conduct, creating a disruptive and hostile community for the students and staff. Loomer can cry to the judges about her free speech and see how that holds up.

Anti-Muslim bigotry[edit]

Phobia=irrational fear. It's 100% rational to fear that (ISLAM) which wants to kill you (Infidels). There is NO SUCH THING as Islamophobia!
—Loomer in a nutshell[5]

Loomer is an anti-Muslim bigot. She consistently attacks Muslims as a group instead of criticizing Islam. For example, she consistently describes Muslims as savages:

Leave it to Muslims to ruin everything. People can't even enjoy #Halloween without those savages f**king everything up for everyone.[6]

How many more people need to die before everyone agrees that Islam is cancer & we should never let another Muslim into the civilized world?[7]

Despite what @andersoncooper and @CNN tell you, Americans are sick and tired of Islamic savages killing ppl![8]

She is willfully ignorant of the existence of different strains of Islamic belief:

There's no such thing as a moderate Muslim. They're ALL the same. It's time for us to accept this reality. I refuse to watch more ppl die.[9] The Quran explicitly tells followers of Islam to kill all infidels. Why are people trying to pretend like this can be interpreted? #BanIslam[10]

How can you honestly say there are non sharia compliant Muslims when to be a Muslim, you must follow the Quran which says kill all infidels?[11]

As previously shown, she consistently blames all Muslims for Islamist terrorism:

Going to order ton of "Muslims please stop killing us" t-shirts from Milo & give them out to every NYC @Uber driver.[12]

I would be happy to adjust my position in the future if most Muslims would publicly denounced Islamic terror. But that's not happening ATM.[13]

My life and the life of other innocent Americans is more important than some Islamic immigrant's feelings. I will continue to speak truth.[14]

She upholds a complete ban of Muslims in the West:

What about Muslims? Is that ban in question?[15]

Then let me be the first to say I never want another Muslim entering this country EVER AGAIN! #ProudIslamophobe[16]

She refuses services from Muslims (in particular Muslim Uber and Lyft drivers):

I'm late to the NYPD press conference because I couldn't find a non Muslim cab or @Uber @lyft driver for over 30 min! This is insanity.[17]

I generally try to not support Muslim owned businesses companies here in NY. That shouldn't be hard to do in US, but w/ immigration it is.[18] Nearly every cab @uber @lyft driver in NYC is Muslim. It's extremely unfortunate and this is a conversation we need to have for our safety.[19]

Someone needs to create a non Islamic form of @uber or @lyft because I never want to support another Islamic immigrant driver.[20]

.@nytimes sent a female Muslim hijab wearing reporter to cover #ISIS terror attack in NYC. I asked her to disavow, she laughed & refused![21]

She has even cheered on the deaths of migrants.

Good. 👏🏻 Here's to 2,000 more[22]

Indeed, she can't even handle Muslims walking around New York City:

Muslims are out in full force at the scene of the NYC #ISIS attack today rubbing it in everyone's face. Aimlessly walking around in hijabs.[23] You'd think they'd have the decency to not walk around in hijabs @ cross street of the attack. But they don't. I bet they're loving this.[24]

They literally just walk around in Muslim garb and hope people notice they are Muslim. They like reminding people that their ppl did this.[25]

The 2 women were smiling/smirking in hijabs as they walked past scene of terrorist attack. That is not appropriate. I stand by what I said.[26]

TLDR: Loomer is so bigoted that even Lauren Southern called Loomer out:[27]

I don't like Islam — but I'm not going to pretend two girls walking in the street is them "loving" a terrorist attack. That's insane.


All of this eventually lent to her Twitter account being suspended due to her eventually smearing Minnesota Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar as "anti-Jewish" and her typical bigoted tweets.[28] You can guess what her and her fanbase reaction was like.

Jewish ethnicity as moral license[edit]

I am not a white supremacist. I am JEWISH!
—Laura Loomer, intellectual extraordinaire[29]
Ashkenazi Jews are white...It’s an absurd thing to classify all Jews as not white.
—Also Laura Loomer, kind of giving the game away [30]
See the main article on this topic: Whataboutism

Loomer frequently uses her Jewish ethnic background to deflect criticism or attack others:

Lefties may call me a Nazi, even though I'm a Jew. But I promise you I am not paid by ACTUAL nazi Jew @georgesoros.[31]

Black supremacist @tariqnasheed accusing me of being modern day sonderkommando. But my grandfather was arrested in Berlin for being a Jew.🤔[32]

But I am a Jew. Not a Nazi.[33]

Funny, because Loomer believes that George Soros (a Jew) was a Nazi collaborator.

This is why people don't like Marxist Hollywood Jews. They act like they are in a mafia.[34] Don't let anyone tell you that the Marxist Hollywood-Jew mafia isn't real. *I am a Jew and I approve this message.*[35]

There is a lot of Jewish influence in the media… as a Jew even I will admit this. Facts are facts.[36]

As a Jew, I am calling total bullshit on the @ADL_National for claiming to fight hate while they spread hate against conservatives.[37]

I was already taking legal action against @Uber before they banned me today. They are a highly anti Semitic company and endanger lives.[38]

Conspiracy theories[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Conspiracy theory
Good. I live in NY and I have the addresses of every top CNN anchor. I will blame and shame them all until @CNN is shut down forever.
—Laura Loomer, not a stalker[39]

Loomer runs with the Alex Jones and Mike Cernovich crowds. For example, she is proud to say that "CNN is ISIS".[40] As said above, Loomer also believes that George Soros was a Nazi collaborator.[31][41]

Twitter drama about teh sensy ship[edit]

Twitter removed Loomer's "verified" blue checkmark. In response, Loomer wrote:

And so it begins. Twitter is quick to call me and others Nazis, but they are literally trying to eradicate my presence. Just like Hitler.[42]

To the LEFT:
"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me."
--Martin Niemoller[43][note 1]

Because taking away a journalist's public verification on social media is a form of censorship. And censorship is the first step toward tyranny.[44][note 2]

Using "badge politics", censoring those who don't worship twitter's liberal dictator, & implementing procedures to annihilate conservatives from the Internet?

Sounds like twitter is carrying out its own "final solution" for conservatives.[45]

We at RationalWiki heartily agree: Twitter's verification policies are exactly like the Holocaust.

Suicide threats[edit]

In recent times, Loomer threatened to commit suicide because she had her Twitter blue check verification removed.[46] Twitter Support responded by telling Loomer that she needs help.[47] Loomer then attempted to retract her suicide threats over losing her blue check mark by launching the #ImNotSuicidal hashtag.[48] She is still unverified now banned from Twitter.[49][50] We at RationalWiki hope that Laura Loomer gets the help she needs!

Banned from Twitter[edit]

Eventually, Twitter grew sick of Loomer's antics and decided to ban her.[51] Loomer then responded by handcuffing herself to the door of a Twitter office in NYC while wearing a yellow Jewish star and threatening to pee her pants.[52][53][54][55][56][57][58][59][60][61][62][63][64][65][66] Unsurprisingly, her account was not reactivated.

Notes[edit]

  1. She either didn't notice or doesn't care that the first line is literally about the left.
  2. Censorship is actually the fourth step toward tyranny.
