Far-right Congresswoman and prominent conspiracy theorist Marjorie Taylor Greene frequently used her Twitter account to attack her colleagues and spread deranged disinformation to her nearly 500 thousand followers.
But it was her continued lies about the COVID-19 pandemic, which has killed more than 800 thousand Americans, that finally got her personal account banned from the social media outlet this past weekend.
After numerous temporary suspensions, Greene was in violation of Twitter's five strike policy about spreading disinformation regarding the pandemic—disinformation that has repeatedly proven to be deadly.
Twitter said in a statement:
“We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy.”
Greene predictably railed against the ban on the right-wing "free speech" social media outlet, GETTR.
"Twitter is an enemy to America and can't handle the truth.
That's fine, I'll show America we don't need them and it's time to defeat our enemies."
The Congresswoman's official congressional Twitter account and its 300+ thousand followers remains intact, but since it's considered an official use of congressional resources, it's subject to House rules and carries more restrictions than her personal account.
Greene's continued use of militant rhetoric raised eyebrows on social media.
Greene's soft endorsements of violence are nothing new. The congresswoman was stripped of her committee assignments in her very first year, after reports confirmed that—before her election—she expressed support for the execution of those who would become her colleagues. She's also suggested shooting door-to-door vaccine information liaisons and said that blood must be spilt to regain freedoms Americans have supposedly lost. She's even repeatedly floated the idea of a "national divorce."
So it was no surprise that Greene was once again using extremist rhetoric. In fact, people soon began mocking her for it.
Greene hasn't tweeted from her official Twitter account since Christmas Eve.
