Lara Loomer was right and she is owed an apology.
In September of 2018, Lara Loomer crashed a Congressional Hearing in Washington DC. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was presenting before a hearing of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
During the hearing, Loomer interrupted the proceedings and began to call out Jack and Twitter for shadow-banning conservatives. She also accused him of trying to steal the 2020 Election.
While speaking out about Jack, Missouri GOP Rep. Billy Long attempted to drown out Loomer’s interruption by showing off his auctioneering skills. This was an unforgettable moment in House politics.
Looking back, however, Loomer was right.
People do need to acknowledge she was right when she did that, everyone knew it was the truth. And Republicans allowed her to be banished for ‘her style’ of messaging. Which may not be everyone’s, but the message was true. She is owed an apology by the GOP and the media. https://t.co/foFVp2DRhk

This was not the first time Jack made this claim. Jack Dorsey at Twitter declared to the world that Twitter was not shadow-banning individual accounts back in 2018.
Following up on this with a lot more detail. We don’t shadow ban, and we certainly don’t shadow ban based on political viewpoints. We do rank tweets by default to make Twitter more immediately relevant (which can be flipped off). More on ranking signals: https://t.co/ORjJfyBvhc

Loomer was also right about the fake Kamala Harris stunt in Florida.
She also was right about not placing Proud Boys in the same camp as racist, violent, and anti-semetic groups like Black Lives Matter.
Loomer has a unique way of sharing it but she is often right on target.
