Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga) has been permanently removed from Twitter, in turn, reigniting calls for an end to political censorship. The congresswoman released a powerful message in response to her ban. The Georgia Republican took to Telegram Sunday, saying Big Tech will not stop the truth “from being spread far and wide.”
Taylor Greene also said Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Vice President Kamala Harris are bailing out violent Black Lives Matter activists and the Democrat propaganda machine in spreading lies about the Russia hoax, but Twitter does not mind.
The congresswoman was banned after demanding congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) apologize to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) for trying to smear him. Taylor Greene added, Twitter is an enemy to America and it can’t handle the truth.
Meanwhile, investigative reporter Glenn Greenwald is denouncing Twitter’s move to ban Greene. In a series of tweets Sunday, Greenwald said Twitter banning a duly-elected U.S. representative is an abusive, dangerous and ill-conceived act. He stressed, Democrats and liberals are relying on the corporate power of Big Tech to silence their political opponents.
Greenwald added, Twitter bans of U.S. officials gives a bad example to autocratic regimes overseas who will increase crackdowns on dissent in a similar manner. He also said this union of state and corporate power endorsed by Democrats is in clear violation of the U.S. Constitution.
