BREAKING: PayPal just banned me for no reason whatsoever. This comes one day after Radical Left wingers published a fake hit piece about me, falsely accusing me of getting donations from an “anti-Muslim hate group”. The good news is, there is a lawyer who is going to take my case, and just like Gavin McInnes, I plan on suing all of the Left wing terrorists and tech tyrants who are trying to shut me down simply because I am a Conservative Jewish woman who speaks truth about Islam. I have nothing to lose anymore, so trust me when I say I will stop at nothing to make sure justice is served for the way Silicon Valley has disenfranchised me, falsely accusing me of being a white supremacist, a Nazi, anti-Muslim, a racist, a bigot, and every other smear in the book. I am banned everywhere. I am banned on Twitter for exposing Jew hatred, I am banned by Uber an Lyft, I am banned from Go fund me, I am banned from Venmo, I am banned from Uber Eats. Essentially I can’t even exist in society because the actual Nazis in tech and on the left constantly ban me because I post facts. How am I supposed to pay my bills? I can’t get a regular job because I have been accused of being a Nazi. Am I supposed to be homeless? I guess these people won’t be happy until I reach a breaking point and just die. Let’s be honest. That’s what these people want. They want me to die from all of the pressure and stress of not being able to live freely in America. They are evil and will stop at nothing to ruin people’s lives. Even the people from Right Wing watch retweet videos and articles posted by people who say they want me to commit suicide. They actively call for me to be assaulted and support people like Montel Williams who advocated for me to be tased to death simply for existing. In the meantime, If you’d like to support my journalism so that I can just pay my bills on top of paying off some of the nearly $40,000 of credit card debt I’ve acquired from trying to pay for my investigations & videos which expose these people and their hypocrisy, you can do so here by sending me a check to this address: Laura Loomer P.O. Box 1029, Lake Worth, Florida 33460 They want me to be homeless & die!

Loomer in her post blamed the suspension on a recent story from Right Wing Watch that accused her of having ties to United West, a group that says its mission is stopping “the expansion of Shariah law in the USA” and has been designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

A PayPal spokesperson confirmed Loomer’s ban to the Daily Beast. She told the paper to "f--- off" when reached for comment.

Loomer said that she planned to take legal action against “the Left wing terrorists and tech tyrants who are trying to shut me down.”

“I have nothing to lose anymore, so trust me when I say I will stop at nothing to make sure justice is served for the way Silicon Valley has disenfranchised me, falsely accusing me of being a white supremacist, a Nazi, anti-Muslim, a racist, a bigot, and every other smear in the book,” she wrote.

Loomer said she has accumulated $40,000 in credit card debt for her right-wing activism, and asked her followers to send checks to her personally instead of supporting her via PayPal.

“I can’t even exist in society because the actual Nazis in tech and on the left constantly ban me because I post facts. How am I supposed to pay my bills?” She wrote. “I can’t get a regular job because I have been accused of being a Nazi. Am I supposed to be homeless?”

Loomer, who was kicked off of Twitter in November, said in her post that she has also been banned from Uber, Lyft, GoFundMe and Venmo. She is one of a number of far-right figures to be banned by tech companies.

She was banned from Uber and Lyft after calling for the creation of a new rideshare app that does not employ Muslims.

Loomer chained herself to Twitter’s New York city office in November to protest her suspension from the platform.

And last month, she and another far-right activist were arrested in California for trespassing on the grounds of the governor’s mansion in protest of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s (D) stance on immigration.
