Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene’s personal Twitter account has been permanently banned after repeatedly violating the social media site’s COVID19 disinformation policy, the company said on Sunday.
The far-right Georgia Republican got the boot following what was her fifth suspension from the social media platform, resulting in her permanent deletion according to Twitter’s COVID-19 guidelines.
“We have made it clear that as part of our strike system for this policy, we will permanently block accounts for repeated violations of the policy,” a Twitter spokesman told HuffPost.Georgia’s 14th Congressional District remained active through Sunday. Greene replied on Twitter on Sunday calling him “an enemy of the United States”.
Okay, I’m going to show America that we don’t need them and that it is time to defeat our enemies. They cannot successfully complete a communist revolution when people tell the truth, She said in a statement.
Greene’s personal Twitter account was last suspended for a week in August when she tweeted that COVID-19 vaccines are “failing” and that “the FDA shouldn’t approve Covid vaccines.
Greene posted on social media on Saturday a list of reasons America “is no longer free” due to the coronavirus pandemic. A spokesperson for Greene told HuffPost that was the job she was penalized for. His list included, among other lies, that “unvaccinated healthy people are an underclass” and that wearing this mask makes children sick and “ruins their natural learning.” Vaccination mandates are multiplying. This post remained visible on his Facebook account until Sunday morning.
