A little context here. This is Laura Loomer. She's a journalist for The Rebel TV, a nutty right wing conservative website that loves to whip up fear, and a self-described former Project Veritas "operative." A little refresher on who they are, they're the ones that misleadingly edit together videos of covertly (see: illegally) recorded conversations to drive a narrative.
One common theme with people who view themselves as martyrs for exposing the truth is that they also have to concoct stories to support this self-image. This isn't just for us, this is for them. And that's where we begin...
Someone just slashed my tire... I'm honestly speechless. 1 week after someone doxed me. pic.twitter.com/A8HwyHdt7W— Laura Loomer (@LauraLoomer) August 2, 2017
In comes @Fuctupmind to CSI the hell out of this for us:
The mark there, is where the wheel hit a curb / pot hole.— Mike (@Fuctupmind) August 3, 2017
There is ZERO puncture. That's an impact blow out.
The tire is old. pic.twitter.com/0qIH8Ggvl3
Given the green valve cap, you purchased the tire at Costco. pic.twitter.com/2V95UmFPOV— Mike (@Fuctupmind) August 3, 2017
Given the wheel you also drive an older model jeep grand Cherokee.— Mike (@Fuctupmind) August 3, 2017
That is the date the tire was made. It looks like the 7th week of 2011. pic.twitter.com/VBAmsCUvMU— Mike (@Fuctupmind) August 3, 2017
It also is a Michelin.— Mike (@Fuctupmind) August 3, 2017
Multiple marks in that particular pattern, is caused by driving on the wheel with zero air in it. pic.twitter.com/4puGXh2RBl— Mike (@Fuctupmind) August 3, 2017
The shiny part of the rim, indicates the vehicle was in motion when the impact happened.— Mike (@Fuctupmind) August 3, 2017

My final thought, is this tire was slashed, by something in the road, at about 15-25 miles an hour. @__0HOUR1_— Mike (@Fuctupmind) August 3, 2017
When faced with the facts, instead of taking it on the chin and acknowledging that she very well may have just jumped to conclusions, she decided to just whine that she wasn't being supported in her view of reality.
If you won't stand with me, then I won't stand with you. I'm not going to defend people I disagree w/ when they won't defend me and my tire.— Laura Loomer (@LauraLoomer) August 3, 2017
If you can't stand me at my tires slashed, you don't deserve me at my tires fully inflated, taking me wherever I need to go.— Gourmet Spud (@gourmetspud) August 3, 2017
