I had never heard of Laura Loomer until Twitter banned her because she is a Jewish activist who raised questions about the anti-Semitic statements of newly elected Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
Probably most of you hadn’t heard of her either, but now thanks to the persecution of Loomer by Twitter and its left-wing CEO Jack Dorsey, she has become a leading voice of “Resistance on the Right” to the Big Brother oppression tactics of Big Tech and Big Money.
How convenient for the oppressive left that they have virtually total control of the main means of discourse in the 21st century — social media. If you get banned from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube, then you have a vastly restricted chance to impact the national debate. But Loomer fought back on the platforms she still had available, and now her world has shrunk again.
In early February she was banned from PayPal, thus hurting her ability to do business. She has also been banned from GoFundMe. Was it because she was a conservative? Do you think PayPal would actually admit to that? Heck no, they just told Loomer “PayPal, in its sole discretion, has the right to terminate your account for any reason and at any time upon notice to you.” So PayPal, Twitter and GoFundMe have the right to impede your ability to do business, and essentially to have an opinion, if you are a conservative.
But it gets worse. Last week, Chase Bank suspended Loomer’s online access to her bank account without explanation. How could that be? How could a public service industry like a bank deny access to anyone because of their political beliefs? This is still America, right?
Well it may be, but not for long if conservatives don’t fight back to protect the principles of fair play and free speech. They came for Loomer and you didn’t say anything because you are not Jewish. Wait! That sounds familiar. Didn’t the Nazis try this once before? Wake up, America. If they can ban Laura Loomer, they can ban you too.

It helps if we are more descriptive about the Democrats; They don’t just hate Conservatives. They hate everyone who is not Democrat. That includes Republicans, Conservatives, TEA Party advocates, patriots and scouts. I like the term “pwand.” That indicates People Who Are Not Democrats.
Frank, if you can come up with a broader term that is accurate, we will all be in your debt.
I like the way you think, Jack. Not sure I can do better!
