Loews Hotels has cancelled a fundraiser event for duly elected Republican Sen. Josh Hawley due to pressure from left-wing extremists who believe men like Hawley are equivalent to the Nazi officials who’d orchestrated the Holocaust.
No joke …
“We are horrified and opposed to the events at the Capitol and all who supported and incited the actions. In light of those events and for the safety of our guests and team members, we have informed the host of the Feb. fundraiser that it will no longer be held at Loews Hotels,” the hotel chain announced on Twitter Saturday.

Though the hotel didn’t name names, according to Politico “a political action committee affiliated with Hawley’s re-election, Fighting for Missouri PAC, was scheduled to hold a Valentine’s Day weekend fundraiser for the senator Feb. 12-15 at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel in Orlando, Fla., near the Universal Orlando theme park.”
Below is a flier for the event:

Loews Hotels also abstained from providing a reason for the blacklist, though it’s presumed it was motivated by Hawley’s decision to file a legal challenge in Congress on Jan. 6th in objection to the 2020 presidential election.
Leftists have falsely conflated the legal challenges of congressional Republicans such as Hawley, among others, with the storming of the U.S. Capitol by right-wing extremists, despite the two events being entirely separate and mostly unrelated.
In response to the hotel’s announcement, the same breed of radicalized leftists who’d been pressuring Loews in the first place rushed forth to congratulate the corporation and also repeat their mantra that men like Hawley are “fascists.”
One particularly deranged AWFL went so far as to claim that “modern day Nuremberg” trials need to be held for Hawley and others like him.
FYI, the Nuremberg trials were military tribunals held after World War II for the Nazi officials who’d orchestrated the murder and genocide of an estimated six million Jews.
It’s not clear whom or what Hawley has helped genocide, save for perhaps this woman’s brain cells.
Fascists must be denied platforms and venues. Need modern day Nuremberg trials, not media tours. There are NOT “good people on both sides”.
There are fascist traitors & American patriots.
Nazis & decent humans citizens. This genocidal regime must be banished! #Loews #antifascism https://t.co/8uu0ktXcno

Every place they go, every thing they do, and every business or person that supports them..:we have to be as loud as the seditionists but use peace, the power of our wallets and the power of our votes to end them.

Well done, Loews, in refusing to allow @HawleyMO use your hotel to do fundraisers
Let all politicians knows that treason is not welcome

Thank you, for taking a stand against insurrection.
Those who supported the insurrection against the United States of America, should not flourish or profit.

Thank you. You chose the right side of history. It was either Democracy or Fascism. Glad you chose Democracy.

These people live in a fictional reality world that’s been crafted by dishonest Democrats and “journalists” — and then drilled into their minds. In no way did Hawley support the “insurrection” at the Capitol and commit treason. Nor he is a “fascist.”
These are lies, as noted by the senator himself in a statement released Saturday.
“If these corporations don’t want conservatives to speak, they should just be honest about it. But to equate leading a debate on the floor of the Senate with inciting violence is a lie, and it’s dangerous. I will not be deterred from representing my constituents and I will not bow to left wing corporate pressure,” he said.
It’s remarkable that he still has to explain this, especially given as he already explained everything in a column published late last week in the Southeast Missourian
“Our system of government is the envy of the world in part because it contains mechanisms to give Americans of different views a voice—without resort to threats or violence or unrest of any kind,” he wrote.
“Debate on the floor of Congress, like the debate that is provided for during the counting of electoral votes, is one of these. It is a forum for registering disagreement, airing differing views, and resolving these differences peaceably. This is our proud tradition as Americans.”
“I objected in order to have a debate on election integrity… In the past, when Democrats objected, @SpeakerPelosi praised their objection saying, “This debate is fundamental to our democracy” and “we are witnessing democracy at work.”” https://t.co/vlJM3xGlng

Plus, he added, Democrats have objected to election results countless times.
“To be specific, Democrats objected after the elections of 2000, 2004, and 2016–in other words, every time a Republican has won the White House in the last thirty years. And they were within their rights to do so. The Joint Session is the forum where concerns about an election can be raised, debated, and ultimately resolved with a vote,” he noted.
But now that Republicans have done the exact same thing Democrats have been doing for decades, they’re being labeled “insurrectionists” and “traitors” — and compared to the men who orchestrated the murder of millions of Jews.
