The Council for American Islamic Relations is now facing a lawsuit launched by a conservative activist.
Laura Loomer has filed a lawsuit against both CAIR and Twitter in response to CAIR convincing Twitter to ban the Jewish activist.
The lawsuit claims that Loomer was banned from Twitter in Nov. 2018 after CAIR objected to Loomer’s factual tweets about Rep. Ilhan Omar.
This led fallout led to Loomer being banned from Twitter, PayPal, Venmo, GoFundME, Medium, Uber, Uber Eats, Lyft and TeeSpring.
New York free-speech attorney Ronald Coleman will represent Loomer, who made a statement along with her court filing:
“The greatest threat to free speech today is political pressure being placed on corporate forums like Twitter. We are looking forward to a jury to hearing the bias and collusion between Twitter and the terrorist front-group, CAIR in their efforts to silence me and prevent me from fully operating my media company, Illoominate Media.
No one loves the free market more than I do, but shutting down dissenting voices by labeling them ‘hate speech’ has nothing to do with freedom. We’re aiming to restore liberty to the market of ideas and inquiry, and are eager for all the support we can get.
I am gratified to be able to begin this filing, which I hope will be the beginning of my redemption and liberation from big tech tyrants and terrorists, on the eve of Passover.”
