    On Wednesday, right-wing investigative journalist Laura Loomer was permanently suspended from social media platform Twitter over a tweet wherein Loomer criticized Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Islamic practices like female genital mutilation (FGM).

    "Isn't it ironic how the twitter moment used to celebrate 'women, LGBTQ, and minorities' is a picture of Ilhan Omar? Ilhan is pro-Sharia Ilhan is pro FGM. Under Sharia homosexuals are oppressed and killed. Women are abused and forced to wear the hijab. Ilhan is anti-Jewish," said Loomer, 25.

    Laura Loomer not exactly a leading light of journalism. But I see no reason why Twitter would suspend a user for this tweet:

    The tweet apparently violated Twitter's "rules against hateful conduct," which seem to be applied fast and loose and mostly dependent on your political ideology. Loomer, who is Jewish, had accumulated over 260,000 on Twitter before she was effectively silenced.

    It took Facebook less than 24 hours to issue a suspension against Loomer.

    BREAKING: @facebook just suspended Jewish Conservative journalist @LauraLoomer less than 24 hrs after @Twitter permanently banned her yesterday for speaking out about Jew hatred & Sharia Law.

    This censorship is out of control and something MUST be done about it. @realDonaldTrump


    In a statement on social media platform Gab, which describes itself as "the free speech network," Loomer said she has been "silenced in America for simply telling the truth."

    "Free speech is under attack by the Left and big tech companies in this country," said Loomer, adding, "My haters are celebrating today, and they are saying this is the end of my career, but I want everyone to know I'm just getting started. Everyone who knows me knows I don't back down."

    Rep. Omar, who is Muslim, has a history of anti-Israel comments, and voted against a bill that would block efforts to boycott Israeli businesses.

    "Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel," said Omar in a tweet from 2012, which she defended as recently as May 2018.

    Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel. #Gaza #Palestine #Israel

    Additionally, as reported by The Daily Wire, "In 2017, the Minnesota House passed HF400, the 'Israel Boycott Ban' bill, which banned the state of Minnesota, including Minnesota colleges and universities, from contracting with vendors boycotting Israel. Omar voted against the bill, saying, 'I would have loved to vote for a bill that expands our ideals of fighting against discrimination, that actually stood up against all discrimination. I don't want to be part of a vote that limits the ability of people to fight towards justice and peace.'"

    Loomer recently made headlines for confronting celebrity attorney and anti-Trump activist Michael Avenatti and Women's March supporter and actress Alyssa Milano at Politicon in Los Angeles. After Loomer confronted Milano about the Women's March's leaders' ties to anti-Semitism, the actress denounced them.

    On Wednesday, in a video reacting to the Twiiter ban (see below), Loomer called on President Donald Trump to do something about the "monopolistic" big tech companies silencing opposition.

    "If you want to win in 2020, you have to ensure your supporters have a voice on social media," she implored.
