New Low in Twitter Censorship: Banned after accused Congresswoman-Elect Ilhan Omar of supporting Sharia law and female genital mutilation. By Alana Mastrangleo.

Independent journalist Laura Loomer was banned from Twitter on Wednesday, following a tweet in which she accused Congresswoman-Elect Ilhan Omar of supporting Sharia law and female genital mutilation.

Loomer, who had amassed more than 260,000 followers on the Twitter, said that the social media platform had permanently suspended her account, informing her that she had violated Twitter’s rules against “hateful conduct.”

The offending tweet?

“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.”

Not allowed to say that any more.

Oh lighten up:

Farewell free speech, I knew thee well.
