Twitter Censors Marjorie Taylor Greene for... Telling the Truth?

The liberal media loves to hate her. The Democratic Party surely hates her. Liberal America wants to draw and quarter her. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is the queen of "I don't give a #$%&" when it comes to these clowns. Democrats removed her from her committee assignments because they simply didn't like her views. That's what was at the core of her purge on the Hill. She didn't commit a crime. She may have been a bit too zesty in her remarks about Democrats, but that's not a felony. In fact, there are scores of other Democrats who have made similar incendiary remarks. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) all but called for lynch mobs against Trump officials who were seen in public. The left thinks they're killing MTG, but the latest attack on her from the Democrat-media-tech complex only increases her shelf life. 

She's been permanently banned from Twitter and Facebook. Again, Big Tech has made themselves the creepy policemen of free speech. Of course, what she tweeted wasn't worthy of being tossed into the pit of the banished. Yet, her infraction involved the COVID pandemic (via Politico): 

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said Monday she has been temporarily barred from posting on her Facebook account by the social network, less than a day after losing her personal Twitter account.

[…]

“Who appointed Twitter and Facebook to be the authorities of information and misinformation?” she wrote. “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.”

A spokesperson for Facebook’s parent company, Meta, confirmed that it took down a post of Greene’s.

“A post violated our policies and we have removed it; but removing her account for this violation is beyond the scope of our policies,” Aaron Simpson said in a statement.

On Sunday Greene was permanently locked out of her personal Twitter account for repeated violations of the company’s Covid-19 misinformation policy. The move came after several previous suspensions for similar rules violations, though the permanent suspension does not apply to her official Twitter account.

As we all know, there are legions of liberals who spread misinformation about COVID on this platform. The selective enforcement of this new regime is always present, pervasive, and transparent. We also saw through the sham as well. We all knew the definition of fully vaccinated would change, that mandates would follow, that the vaccinated can also spread the virus, that scores of people would lose their jobs, and that COVID passports or proof of vaccination might inhibit travel. We were all called nutjobs for thinking that—but we were right. 

Also, a duly elected congresswoman being booted from a platform should raise all sorts of red flags whether you like her or not. Like COVID, liberals just need to learn to live with the fact that there are tens of millions more people who simply don't agree with them or their agenda. You can't throw a tantrum every time you're upset that someone has a contrary opinion. After the CDC changed the quarantine and isolation protocols for COVID, it seems that even liberal America has decided that the experts don't know what they're doing. 

It's ironic. The very people who want MTG gone will lead to her continued existence on the Hill. The endless attacks on her only raise her profile, and her refusal to kowtow to the left-wing authoritarians only endears her more to conservatives. I love her for that—I admit. She doesn't break. She fights, and if she wasn't stripped of her committee assignments, maybe she could do a little more for the people who sent her there and will probably do so again in 2022. 

The GOP is poised to retake the House in 2022. That means she will be back on those committees, and the Democrats we hate could see their assignments stripped over their views. I would nix every member of The Squad under this "we don't like you very much" precedent that's been adopted by members of Congress. I would also like to see Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) off of his committee assignment since he can't keep it in his pants when it comes to Asian women, specifically Chinese spies.
