Oh, this is funny. Laura Loom

Laura Loomer er would fit right in the CT section here..

And Twitter reacted perfectly

"Police have told Loomer that Twitter won’t be pressing charges and that she can stay chained to their door as long as she wants."

Far-right conspiracy theorist Laura Loomer handcuffed herself to the front door of Twitter’s corporate offices in New York on Thursday.

“Twitter is upholding sharia when they ban me for tweeting facts about sharia law,” shouted Loomer, who is Jewish and donned a yellow Star of David on her jacket, which appears to suggest that losing your Twitter account is similar to the Nazi persecution of Jews

Why don't they just make an Alt-Right version of Twitter instead of flailing around like morons...

...oh wait.

Laura Loomer is one of James O'Keeffe's compatriots. She's an agent provacateur; the only difference being she's way worse at being one than he is.

That is actually pretty damned perfect.

Can just imagine how that meeting must have gone.

“So what should we do about this nutcase who’s handcuffed herself downstairs?”

*shrugs

“You guys wanna get lunch?”

Other choice bits

As of Thursday evening, NYPD officers had erected a barricade around Loomer and were moving onlookers away.

and

CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski reported Thursday afternoon that Loomer said she would stay handcuffed all night but was “getting cold and no longer has the key.”

The best thing to do with unreasonable people like this is just to ignore them. Walk right on past. Let her stay there for days if she chooses to. Hope she has a strong bladder :lol:

I've said it before, but it apparently still needs to be said.

Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook are privileges, not rights. Much like this site, there are rules that they have in place, which they can and will enforce at their own discretion. That's because their website is private property, just like your home is, and just like in your home they are free to kick out PITA or rude guests for any reason.

Those are THEIR constitutional rights . Your rights end where there's begin.

Don't like it? Go build your own forum and you can police it however you want.

The better meeting spot owners dont demand to control the conversations that take place with-in, they restrain themselves, out of a sense of civility and humility.......decency.

Increasingly we cant have any of that anymore.

That is not how dark ages roll.

We must be managed.

Obviously the jackass was wanting to be arrested.

She's another copycat that was planning on getting arrested, spending no more than six hours in jail, and getting released into a lifetime supply of martyrdom and celebrity status for it.

I, for one, applaud Twitter for seeing through the scheme, and just letting her look crazy.

She handcuffed herself to a door?

Isn't that sort thing normally a liberal's tactic to save a tree?

All publicity is good if it is intelligent. The thought behind the proverb had been expressed earlier by Oscar Wilde: The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about. ... There's no such thing as bad publicity except your own obituary.

More provocative than Steven Crowder, better looking than Alex Jones, the Jewish Tomi Lahren, not gay like Milo Yinnopoulos, a James O'Keefe Disciple... meet the one and only LAURA ELIZABETH LOOMER.... one of the Alt-Right's relevant Bright lights, certainly soon to flame out!

I hope that the scenario plays out like this:

1) She lost the keys to her handcuffs.

2) Nobody helps her to get free.

3) She has to go to the bathroom.

4) She calls 911.

5) 911 tells her "Too bad, we only help in life-threatening emergencies".

6) She becomes a public attraction.

7) The entrance to Twitter is renamed "The Twitter Zoo".

One candle in the menorah for each of the above-mentioned points. Happy Hanukkah.

Anyone on Twitter or any other of the social media options that behaves with ANY "sense of civility and humility.......decency" has nothing to worry about - no one who behaved like an adult with the smallest thread of common courtesy has been banned from those sites.

Besides, our Benevolent Dictator Mod team on DP explicitly demands to control the conversations on here and I think they're great owners, and the mods improve the place. Do you disagree - think it would improve DP if we allowed uncensored personal attacks, for example?

No, she gave up after a few hours. She lost or threw away the key, so the NYPD had to cut her handcuffs off with bolt cutters. Should have been a comedy sketch. I think she wanted to be a martyr, but instead people mostly just pointed and laughed, which is the right thing to do with an idiot like that.

She had the cops cut her loose just a few hours later. She didn't even last till 7 pm.

She probably had to go pee.

The folks at Twitter did the smart thing and didn't make a spectacle out of the whole thing. Want to chain yourself to the door? Sure, go for it.

Never heard of this person before you brought her up. Must be someone significant and representative of the right, just as Waters represents everyone on the left.

In regards to her silly tweet, she could have walked or taken the subway if she was that bothered by Muslim cab drivers. What a dolt.

Maybe she wants to break old paradigms and is paving the way for door huggers?
