Let me just start by saying that I get where Laura Loomer is coming from … I do. She is passionate and clearly cares very much about doing what she can to get Donald Trump elected and ultimately I can appreciate that. Politics is very passionate, especially when you care THAT MUCH you don’t always think about who you might be hurting, or what damage you might actually be doing to the very person you’re supporting.
The person you’re fighting for.
Trust me, I know I’m the last person who should tell others to ‘be kind’ or whatnot (c’mon, we all know I’m not rainbows, butterflies, and sunshine) but Loomer is starting to cross some lines that may ultimately do more damage than good. Especially when it comes to tweets about Casey DeSantis having cancer.
That’s not cool.
That is, in fact, a whole lot of horse crap. And as conservatives, libertarians, independents, Righties or whatever, we shouldn’t be ok with her tweeting some of the things she has. Note, my saying this has ZERO to do with free speech as I am not the government nor am I trying to stop her from tweeting … I’m just saying, nobody should be ok with any of this.
For example, WTF with this?
If I ever get cancer I promise you I will never make a campaign commercial about it and I will never ask my future husband to run for President and solicit donations and votes off of it.

Stop. Tweeting. About. Her. Cancer.
I am, of course, not the only person who feels this way about her tweets. In fact, it seems like most of Twitter would like her to just stifle, at least about Casey DeSantis’ cancer.
What future husband? No man would ever marry your sorry freak ass.

Working in healthcare and with people who have cancer, this is a pretty bottom-of-the barrel move.

This whole, "If I ever…" line of hypothetical nonsense is really weak.
If you were in Congress; if you get cancer; if someone somewhere was stupid enough to ever put you in charge of anything; etc. – these are the musings of an unserious child mind.

Or maybe she feels like expressing her gratitude for how her husband supported her thru the experience.
But I guess that would just be crazy talk in your world. You must live a pretty unhappy life to be that cynical. I'd strongly advise you to work at overcoming it.

It must suck to be you.

You’re a piece of crap.

This is one of those tweets you should probably delete.

'I will never ask my future husband'

Even her supporters want her to knock it off:
I like a lot of what you say however, I wish you would stop talking about her experience with cancer. It’s beneath you.

Seriously, is that too much to ask?
You can still fight for who you support and who you believe in while being decent to someone who has survived cancer. Trust me.
