Twitter has permanently suspended the account of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), citing “COVID-19 misinformation” as the reason for the ban. The tech monopoly said in a statement that the ban was handed down after “repeat violations” of the policy.
“We permanently suspended the account you referenced (@mtgreenee) for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy. We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy,” a Twitter spokesperson told The Hill in a statement.
In response to the ban, Greene issued a statement on Telegram.
“Maxine Waters can go to the streets and threaten violence on Twitter, Kamala and Ilhan can bail out Black Lives Matter terrorists on Twitter, CNN and the rest of the Democrat Propaganda Media can spread Russia collusion lies, and just yesterday the Chief spokesman for terrorist IRGC can tweet mourning Soleimani, but I get suspended for tweeting VAERS statistics,” wrote Greene. “Twitter is an enemy to America and can’t handle the truth.”
Twitter had routinely suspended Greene, a sitting Congresswoman, multiple times prior to the permanent ban. The tech monopoly first banned Greene as the House of Representatives debated ejecting her from Congress.
Greene was left unable to defend herself from accusations levied against her by radical leftist members of Congress but was then reinstated after Twitter said that banning her was the result of an “error.”
In August, Greene was suspended for saying COVID-19 vaccines had not sufficiently stopped the spread. In July, she was suspended for saying that the virus was less dangerous for those under the age of 65.
