Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene was permanently suspended from Twitter on January 2 over alleged "misinformation" regarding COVID-19 vaccines.
Greene's personal account was suspended, while her professional account remains. Twitter said that the suspension was enacted after "repeated violations" of their policies.
"We permanently suspended the account you referenced (@mtgreenee) for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy. We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy," Twitter told The Hill.
Greene responded to the ban on her Gettr account. She wrote that "When Maxine Waters can go to the streets and threaten violence on Twitter," which she did, telling supporters to go harass Trump supporters wherever they saw them and to "get in their face."
"Kamala and Ilhan can bail out rioters on Twitter," which they did, touting their contributions to bail funds that set out to free BLM and Antifa rioters from jail during the summer of 2020.
"And Chief spokesman for terrorist IRGC can tweet mourning Soleimani," which yes, also happened, "but I can get suspended for tweeting VAERS statistics, Twitter is an enemy to America and can't handle the truth."
On Telegram, Greene released an additional statement, reading:
"That’s fine, I’ll show America we don’t need them and it’s time to defeat our enemies. They can’t successfully complete a Communist revolution when people tell the truth.
"Social media platforms can’t stop the truth from being spread far and wide. Big Tech can’t stop the truth. Communist Democrats can’t stop the truth.
"I stand with the truth and the people. We will overcome!"
Greene has been a vocal opponent of vaccine mandates, and Twitter has taken notice. This is the 5th time she was suspended for her statements. The Twitter policy on "COVID-19 misleading information" mirrors much of the Biden administration's rhetoric surrounding the virus and their efforts to contain and prevent it.
VAERS is the "vaccine adverse effect reporting system." It "is a passive reporting system, meaning it relies on individuals to send in reports of their experiences. Anyone can submit a report to VAERS, including parents and patients."
"Healthcare providers are required by law to report to VAERS: Any adverse event listed in the VAERS Table of Reportable Events Following Vaccination that occurs within the specified time period after vaccinations; An adverse event listed by the vaccine manufacturer as a contraindication to further doses of the vaccine." Collected data goes back to 1990.
"As of Nov. 2, people have reported to VAERS 14,506 deaths that occurred sometime after COVID-19 vaccination," NebraskaMed reported, giving hefty disclaimers about the self-reporting aspect of VAERS, and saying that "The true number of deaths currently attributed to COVID-19 vaccines in detailed scientific investigation is quite small."
New York Times tech reporter Davey Alba shared the process of the permanent ban, which comes after 5 strikes due to policy infractions.
Greene is an elected representative for Georgia's 14th District.
