Fresh from her latest ban on Twitter, Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene ripped the social media giant as a “communist” outlet that wants to control the voices of regular people.
In an interview after her account was activated again, Greene said that she said nothing wrong in the tweets that sparked the latest ban. Those tweets cited the deaths of those who have been vaccinated against COVID-19.
Twitter slapped a “misleading” tag on her account.
But she said that their goal is to shut down any talk about the dangers of vaccines or masks.
“I'm not saying anything wrong,” she told Secrets. “As a matter of fact, in the two tweets that I got banned for and suspended for, they're actually factual. You can look them up,” she added.
“There's nothing wrong with saying these things on Twitter. It's just that Twitter and Facebook and social media and the media at large, and the Democrats, don't want anyone to be discussing these truths. They just only want their view being told, which is communism,” she said.
She has been hit with bans before and said that there might be a limit to how many times they will put her account offline before ending it entirely. Greene said that she is on alternative sites GETTR and Parler, but won’t give up her @mtgreenee Twitter account that has 426,000 followers. Her other account, @RepMTG, has another 271,600 followers.
“I'm not a quitter. I will never quit,” she said.
She made the case that in China and Russia, the authorities try to limit speech, and she said that’s what many social media companies are doing in America, especially when it comes to challenging the conventional view on vaccines, masks, and the coronavirus.
“I am only speaking and saying exactly what most regular Americans speak and say every single day, Americans that people here in the swamp never talk to and never even think about. Most Americans all over the country just say the same things that I say. But I'm saying it in a place where they do not want to hear the regular American people's voices,” said Greene.
“And so, for Twitter to ban me, they're not just banning someone that they hate in Congress, a woman that they've decided that they want to destroy — they're actually banning the voice of the American people. And that's why I refuse to quit speaking,” she said.
