Georgia congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has been banned from Twitter for 12 hours after recently spreading misinformation about the COVID-19 pandemic.
Twitter had labeled two tweets from Greene as ‘misleading’ in recent days, after she suggested vaccines were unsafe.
Greene had posted that the coronavirus is not dangerous for non-obese people under 65, and that organizations should not force ‘non-FDA’ approved vaccines or masks.
A Twitter spokesperson said: ‘We took enforcement action on the account @mtgreenee for violations of the Twitter Rules, specifically the COVID-19 misleading information policy’ .
In a scheduled appearance on Newsmax, moments after Twitter suspended her account, the congresswoman insisted her tweets were accurate, saying the suspension was part of a pattern where she’s been ‘canceled’ multiple times.
‘Twitter, who is playing a big part and a role with Big Tech and Facebook and the White House – apparently the Joe and the Biden administration – in censoring Americans, along with the communist cities in communist California who doesn’t [sic] believe that America first represents their values, in Anaheim or Riverside.’
‘We are being canceled and our speech is being canceled,’ Greene continued. ‘And we’re being blamed for it. So you can see what’s going on. This is communism. This is communism when you have American cities canceling two members of Congress’s events at private venues.’
The tweets which saw Greene banned both came in the last two days.
On July 18 she posted: ‘This is why no entity should force NON-FDA approved vaccines or masks. Instead help people protect their health by defeating obesity, which will protect them from covid complications & death, and many other health problems. We should invest in health, not human experimentation.’
