Laura Loomer is dangerous

Laura Loomer has won a Republican primary election for Congress, and is widely de-platformed, including by Facebook, Venmo, Twitter, Instagram, Uber, Lyft, Uber Eats, PayPal, GoFundMe, Medium, TeeSpring, and Chase Bank. I tried to find out what she did that was so offensive, and found this:
Facebook Inc. asked a Miami federal judge to throw out a lawsuit by conspiracy theorist Laura Loomer, saying her ban under its “dangerous individuals and organizations” policy wasn’t defamatory because “reasonable minds can disagree” about whether she’s dangerous.
“While Ms. Loomer may not believe she is ‘dangerous’ or has ‘promoted hate,’ others disagree — as demonstrated by her admission that online platforms have widely banned her,” the tech giant says.
And what makes her so dangerous? I found:
In 2017, she tweeted "how many more people need to die before everyone agrees that Islam is cancer & we should never let another Muslim into the civilized world?"
Loomer is Jewish. It seems to me that most people recognize that a follower of one religion can disagree with a rival religion. To believe in one religion is to reject all the rival religions.

For the most part, Jews believe that Islam is a cancer on the world, and Muslims believe that Judaism is a cancer. Israel has a policy of not letting more Muslims in.

The USA responded to the 9-11-2001 attacks by importing millions of Muslims. This was done without any open public debate on this issue. Anyone who raises these issues gets ostracized.
