Earlier this week, conservative activist Laura Loomer won her primary race in Florida’s 21st Congressional District. Loomer, an outspoken activist, has been banned by the entire Silicon Valley Axis of Evil, the far-left anti-free speech cabal of Big Tech companies that includes the social media giants Twitter and Facebook. One would think that being a candidate for office representing a major party would make these companies rethink their decision.
But, Breitbart reported, Twitter, run by Jack Dorsey, has decided it will continue to discriminate against Loomer.
According to Breitbart:
The tech platforms that previously banned Loomer have largely remained silent on whether they will reinstate her now that she is an official Republican party candidate. Facebook, PayPal, and GoFundMe have yet to respond to Breitbart News’ request for comment.
Twitter is the exception: the platform confirmed to Breitbart News that Loomer’s account will not be reinstated, despite her primary win.
“The account owner you referenced was permanently suspended for repeated violations of the Twitter Rules, and we do not plan to reverse that enforcement action,” said a Twitter spokesman.
Now that Loomer is a Republican candidate, it is leading to renewed calls for tech censorship to be looked at as an illegal in-kind campaign contribution.
According to the Federal Election Commission (FEC), corporations are banned from making free contributions, including “any services, or anything of value” to federal candidates. Because of this, Loomer’s lawyers have argued that social media companies are breaching FEC regulations by granting her Democrat opponent access to their platform while denying it to her.
Twitter, along with the rest of the Axis, remains open to Loomer’s Democrat opponent, Rep. Lois Frankel. Would that constitute an illegal “in-kind” contribution?
It’s not known if the rest of the Axis will continue to discriminate against Loomer. We reached out to multiple individuals at Facebook, but did not receive a response at the time of this writing.
