Far-right Congresswoman and prominent conspiracy theorist Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia was left fuming recently after her repeated violations of Twitter's disinformation policy regarding the COVID-19 pandemic saw Greene's personal account permanently banned.

Greene used the moment to accuse the private company of violating her free speech and of silencing conservatives.

She soon turned to GETTR, the so-called "free speech" social media outlet founded by a former Trump official, to slam Twitter.

Greene wrote:

"Twitter is an enemy to America and can't handle the truth."

If that last part sounds familiar, perhaps you've seen the 1992 film, A Few Good Men.

The film, written by Aaron Sorkin, features a climactic courtroom scene in which protagonist Lieutenant Daniel Kafee, played by Tom Cruise, deposes Colonel Nathan Jessup, played by Jack Nicholson.

When Kafee demands Jessup tell the truth about whether or not he gave a "code red" order for his subordinates to kill one of their own, Jessup bellows:

"You can't handle the truth!"

The line is one of the most iconic of any American film in the 20th century, with the scene ending in Jessup's arrest.

In a visit to The Late Late Show with James Corden, Sorkin responded to Greene's use of arguably the most famous sentence of Sorkin's career.

Sorkin said:

"She can go to hell. ... I liked it a lot better when Burger King was using it."

Sorkin, whose body of work often centers around American politics and media with shows like The West Wing and Newsroom, was praised for his terse response.

Others had similar reactions to Greene's words.

Greene has since called on all congressional Republicans to abandon the social media outlet.
