Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., has been suspended from Facebook and Twitter, with a 24-hour suspension placed on her account for allegedly breaking the COVID-19 disinformation policy.
In a statement released Monday night from his Save America PAC, former President Donald Trump weighed in on Greene’s deplatforming.
“Twitter is a disgrace to democracy. They shouldn’t be allowed to do business in this country. Marjorie Taylor Greene has a huge constituency of honest, patriotic, hard-working people. They don’t deserve what’s happened to them on places like low-life Twitter and Facebook. Everybody should drop off of Twitter and Facebook. They’re boring, have only a radical left point of view, and are hated by everyone. They are a disgrace to our nation. Keep fighting, Marjorie!”
“A post violated our policies and we have removed it; but removing her account for this violation is beyond the scope of our policies,” Meta, the parent company of Facebook, wrote in a statement, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Following Twitter’s permanent shutdown of Greene’s personal Twitter account this weekend, Facebook has placed a 24-hour hold on her account.
“Facebook has joined Twitter in censoring me,” Greene posted to GETTR. “This is beyond censorship of speech.
“I’m an elected Member of Congress representing over 700,000 US tax paying citizens and I represent their voices, values, defend their freedoms, and protect the Constitution.
“But apparently they too think the CDC managed #VAERS system on our own government websites are misinformation. And to date there has been ZERO investigation into reported COVID deaths from government mandated #covid vaccines.
“Who appointed Twitter and Facebook to be the authorities of information and misinformation? When Big Tech decides what political speech of elected Members is accepted and what’s not then they are working against our government and against the interest of our people.”
Greene also stated on GETTR that her personal Twitter account had been suspended twice due to Twitter’s five-strike limit, and she demanded that it be restored.
“Twitter forgot about the 2 times they accidentally suspended my account this past year,” Greene said. “That means I’ve only had 3 strikes in their 5 strike system. Twitter has to reinstate my account immediately.”
