Laura Loomer Blames New York Terror On ‘All Muslims’ — And Mayor De Blasio, Too

Laura Loomer, a leading Jewish voice on the extreme “alt-right,” blamed all Muslims for the terrorist who killed eight people in New York — and said Mayor Bill de Blasio has “blood on his hands” for allying himself with activist Linda Sarsour.

Using the hashtags #banIslam and #proudIslamophobe, Loomer called Islam “cancer” and tweeted that all Muslims are responsible for the deadly violence.

Loomer also posted a photo of de Blasio with Sarsour, a pro-Palestinian activist who has played a leading role in protests against President Trump.

Loomer claimed that Sarsour has called for “jihad in the U.S.,” although there was no sign that the suspected attacker — a legal immigrant from Uzbekistan — had any ties to her.

She also used the attack to renew her support for Trump’s proposed ban on immigrants from several Muslim countries.
