In a recent interview with InfoWars host Alex Jones, Laura Loomer explained how Muslim Uyghurs are being thrown into Chinese concentration camps, the same camps that just so happen to manufacture the products that Big Tech relies on.
Laura explained to Jones during the interview how she is always unjustly referred to as an “Islamophobe” by leftist media outlets. She explains that she is anti-Sharia, however, and there’s clearly a huge difference between the two.
I find it extremely ironic and hypocritical how Big Tech banned me everywhere with false accusations that I am “anti-Muslim”, when I’m not. I’m anti-Sharia. You know who is anti Muslim though? Big Tech. Big Tech does business with the Chinese Communist Party which is literally putting innocent Muslim Uyghurs in concentration camps where they are being sterilized and forced to be slave laborers in factories where they are manufacturing products for Big Tech! THAT IS WHAT YOU CALL ANTI MUSLIM!!!Laura Loomer
“They want to try to kill us in a digital manner by subjecting us to a digital gulag, but look what they’re doing in the countries which they’re outsourcing all of their manufacturing to and then these countries like China where they’re getting all of their executives and people to serve on their board,” Loomer told Jones.
In March, The Australian Strategic Policy Institute highlighted the fact that no less than 83 companies including Apple, BMW, Gap, Huawei, Nike, Samsung, Sony and Volkswagen are using forced slave labor of Muslim Uyghurs in what – by all accounts – appears to be a state-sponsored labor scheme.
The Australian government has called for all companies who do business in Australia to report any use of modern slavery in the production of goods or services, or within the supply chains annually to the Minister. This includes “independent social audits and inspections.”
“This Act requires entities based, or operating, in Australia, which have an annual consolidated revenue of more than $100 million, to report annually on the risks of modern slavery in their operations and supply chains, and actions to address those risks. Other entities based, or operating, in Australia may report voluntarily. The Commonwealth is required to report on behalf of non‑corporate Commonwealth entities, and the reporting requirements also apply to Commonwealth corporate entities and companies with an annual consolidated revenue of more than $100 million.”
In addition, Facebook and Twitter were found to be running ads on their platforms for Chinese state-owned media outlets (such as the Global Times) that paint a picture of peace and prosperity in China’s northwestern Xinjiang region, spreading misinformation about the true atrocities witnessed at the concentration camps. This includes forced labor and torture, oftentimes resulting in death.
Uyghurs, as a Muslim minority in China, are being punished for practicing their beliefs, which is something Loomer is also very familiar with.
Deemed “the most banned woman in America,” Loomer is no stranger to being chastised and punished for expressing her own belief system and holding tight to her moral compass. Not only has Loomer been banned from the most popular social media platforms, but she’s also been refused accounts with delivery companies Uber and Lyft and payment processing companies PayPal, Venmo, and even GoFundMe.
While social media platforms such as Facebook, and Twitter have labeled her and other Conservative personalities as “dangerous,” banning them from using the platforms, other actual terrorists are allowed to not only use the platforms to express their beliefs and ideologies, but to create communities that have produced acts of violence that have resulted in harm to others.
Pro-Sharia Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), part of “The Squad” are allowed to promote their beliefs freely and openly on liberal-owned social media with no questions asked. A number of these social media sites go as far as to promote the congresswomen while Loomer, who is now a candidate running for Florida’s 21st Congressional district, is not even allowed to have campaign social media accounts!
Twitter permanently suspended Loomer from the platform as a private citizen the day before Thanksgiving 2018, after her posts criticizing Somalia-born pro-Sharia Rep. Ilhan Omar’s stance on FGM (female genital mutilation), and being part of a religion where “homosexuality is oppressed,” all true statements. At the time Loomer had over 265,000 followers.
“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 & killed. Women are abused & forced to wear the hijab. Ilhan is anti Jewish.”
Loomer was banned for telling the truth. Truth that Twitter deemed as “hateful conduct”.
After Loomer became a candidate, Twitter changed rules established by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that ensure candidates have equal access to platforms used during an election, better known as the Equal-Time Rule. This rule states that “if any licensee shall permit any person who is a legally qualified candidate for any public office to use a broadcasting station, he shall afford equal opportunities to all other such candidates for the office in the use of such broadcasting station.”
Loomer filed a lawsuit against Twitter arguing Twitter’s banning of now-federal candidate Laura Loomer from the platform is not only illegal, but election interference. By not allowing Loomer equal access to the platform as her opponents, Twitter is able to influence and manipulate elections.
The suit also argues that Loomer’s tweet, resulting in a permanent ban from Twitter, in no way violated their “Hateful Conduct Policy,” and was all factual information. The suit also argues the social media platform “clearly demonstrates an arbitrary and discriminatory enforcement of its Rules and Guidelines in order to stifle conservative candidates for political office.”
This past January, counsel for Laura Loomer for Congress, Charlie Spies stated, “Once Ms. Loomer became a federal candidate, it became illegal for Twitter to ban her while providing free access to her Democrat opponent. Corporate owned public forums like Twitter must either provide equal time and access for all candidates for public office, or charge market value. Twitter should not be exempt from Equal Time laws, and a violation like the one occurring with Ms. Loomer is an impermissible in-kind corporate contribution to her opponent.”
Senator Mark Rubio (R-FL) recently introduced a bill that focuses on human rights violations and abuses, namely forced labor in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in Northwestern China.
The bill was passed unanimously in the Senate on May 14th, 2020.
If the bill is passed in the House, and signed by President Donald Trump, the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act of 2020 will require that Trump submit a report to the Committee on Foreign Relations of the Senate, the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs of the Senate, the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives, and the Committee on Financial Services of the House of Representatives identifying any official of the Government of the People’s Republic of China that is responsible for the denial of human rights in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.
This includes forms of torture, cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment, prolonged detention without charges and trial, causing the disappearance of persons by the abduction and clandestine detention of those persons, or any other flagrant denial of the right to life, liberty, or the security of persons.
The bill also lays out that President Trump would be expected to impose sanctions to any and all foreign persons who are identified in the report, including but not limited to asset blocking, ineligibility for visas, admission, or parole, the revoking of visas belonging to any person found guilty of these abuses, along with other penalties.
The reports must include the number of individuals found to be detained in the internment camps and forced labor camps, a description of the condition of the camps, an assessment of methods of torture, and a description of companies benefitting from the use of slave labor.
It is worth noting that Muslim Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib have remained completely silent on the issue of China putting Muslim Uyghurs in re-education labor camps.
