We live in such stupid times. Laura Loomer is a far-right “activist” famous for doing things like
getting banned from Lyft and Uber, congressional hearings and now Twitter. She has responded to this most recent ban with the most normal of normal things to ever normally be done by any normal person.
ok yall gotta see this

Thankfully, there are plenty of funny people to make fun of our very stupid times, and Twitter did not disappoint. Get ready for a dunk contest.
Wearing the Gold Star of Jewish persecution for maximum attention-whoredome is an epic self-loomering…

was watching the stream and she compared being banned from twitter to the holocaust. she's not even on twitter anymore and she's figuring out ways to have spectacular meltdowns on twitter.

Those are double doors. She only chained herself to one side. So staffers can just walk past her?

LAURA LOOMER (1 week ago): it's fine that I got suspended, bc the president of the United States will obviously step in to intercede on my behalf. I'm relaxed abt it

UPDATE: Twitter dunked on Loomer harder than anyone, telling her that she's free to stand there as long as she wants, and she will not get to fight the legal crusade against them that she so clearly desperately seeks.
