Banned congressional candidate Laura Loomer commissions caricature of Twitter CEO as Taliban leader
Congressional candidate for Florida’s 11th district Laura Loomer commissioned a caricature of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey over the weekend. Now, it’s displayed all around Twitter headquarters.
First its artist, Bosch Fawstin, won the “First Annual Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest” in 2015. ISIS targeted this same exhibit around the same time. Fawstin is a former Muslim himself. Now, his most recent artwork is titled “TaliBANNED.”
“The issue with leftist-run tech companies like Twitter is not about whether they have the right to ban people from their platform, it’s about who they consistently target for banning and why, and who they don’t ban, no matter what,” Fawstin told the Gateway Pundit. “Twitter bans Islam critics like me and Laura, acting in full accordance with Shariah blasphemy laws, while allowing Islamic terrorists who murder Americans to spread their propaganda on their platform. That’s evil, whether or not they have the technical ‘right’ to ban whomever they want.”
“For years, I have been raising awareness about Twitter’s alliance with Islamic terrorist organizations and their willingness to platform enemies of America,” Loomer said. “This is a concept I have referred to as Silicon Sharia, as Twitter has shown they have no problem banning millions of Americans for their constitutionally protected speech, including myself and sitting President Donald Trump during our elections, while they happily provide a platform for recruitment and propaganda for actual terrorists.”
Meanwhile, Loomer and Fawstin remained banned from Twitter themselves. However, Loomer will not back down from her divisive rhetoric. She claims to remain a proud Islamophobe.
