Investigative journalist Laura Loomer is filing a federal lawsuit against U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., who recently was refused entry by Israel for her allegiance to the BDS, boycott, divest and sanction movement that intends to destroy America’s prime Middle East ally.
Loomer’s complaint for assault and battery was filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Minnesota by Freedom Watch and its general counsel, Larry Klayman, a former federal prosecutor.
Freedom Watch said the attack happened in 2018 when Tlaib was attending a campaign event in her state on behalf of U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., a fellow Muslim.
“During the campaign event which Tlaib attended in support of Omar’s candidacy in 2018, Loomer asked simple and straightforward questions of the future congresswoman about her stances toward Israel, Jews and terrorist groups such as Hamas,” Freedom Watch explained.
“In response, and in the presence of Omar, who looked on approvingly, Tlaib violently lunged at Loomer, interacted with her physically and grabbed her phone, which Loomer was using to film the event which took place at a Palestinian restaurant. This put Loomer in alleged fear of immediate severe bodily injury.
“Later, Loomer filed a criminal complaint against Tlaib with the Minneapolis Police Department, which to this day has languished in its files – likely because the police do not want to be smeared as ‘Islamophobic’ by Tlaib and Omar, especially given that Minnesota’s powerful Attorney General, Keith Ellison, who is a Muslim political ally of Tlaib and Omar, is also an anti-Semite and close to Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam.”
“By the acts alleged herein, the Defendant Rashida Tlaib, committed assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and violation of religious rights against the Plaintiff Laura Loomer,” the complaint states.
And Tlaib, who “somehow became a member of the Michigan State Bar,” according to the complaint, “knows that she is not legally permitted to assault or batter Laura Loomer nor violently grab Laura Loomer’s property including Loomer’s smart phone, which put Plaintiff Loomer in fear of severe physical injury.”
It was Aug. 11, 2018, when Tlaib and Omar held a public campaign meeting at the Holy Land Deli, in Minneapolis.
“Laurra Loomer’s questions were squarely within the tradition of a free press in seeking answers on issues important in political campaigns,” the complaint argues.
“The violent attack by Rashida Tlaib came after Plaintiff Loomer, a well-known Jewish investigative reporter, asked Tlaib about whether or not the terror organizations Hamas is in fact a fundamentalist organization that weaponizes terror and violence against Jewish people.”
Tlaib created controversy recently with her demand to go to Israel on a trip sponsored by an anti-Israel organization that has accused Jews of the “blood libel.”
After Israel denied her entry because of her support for BDS, she was granted a humanitarian visa to visit her grandmother but rejected the offer.
She recently said that thinking of the Holocaust gave her a “calming feeling.” When she was elected last fall, she lashed out at President Trump, vowing to go to Washington and impeach the “m———-.”
The complaint alleges assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and violation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. It seeks $500,000 in actual compensatory damages as well as punitive damages “in excess of $2,000,000, plus attorneys fees and costs.”
Klayman commented on the case: “The nation needs to thank my client Laura Loomer for having the courage to take legal action against someone who has bragged that the Holocaust gives her a ‘calming feeling.’ Few in this country will stand up to the forces of evil and Ms. Loomer is a stellar and shining example of what former President John F. Kennedy, Jr., wrote about in his famous book ‘Profiles in Courage.'”
