Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), less than a day after she was permanently banned on Twitter, is now temporarily barred from posting on Facebook.

"Facebook has joined Twitter in censoring me. This is beyond censorship of speech," wrote Greene on pro-free speech platform GETTR, where podcasting icon Joe Rogan joined Sunday following the weekend Twitter purge.

Greene also wrote a longer message on Telegram: "Facebook has joined Twitter in censoring me. This is beyond censorship of speech. I’m an elected Member of Congress representing over 700,000 US tax paying citizens and I represent their voices, values, defend their freedoms, and protect the Constitution."

"But apparently they too think the CDC managed #VAERS system on our own government websites are misinformation. And to date there has been ZERO investigation into reported Covid deaths from government mandated #covid vaccines," Greene continued. "Who appointed Twitter and Facebook to be the authorities of information and misinformation?" she questioned.

"When Big Tech decides what political speech of elected Members is accepted and what’s not then they are working against our government and against the interest of our people," the Republican congresswoman declared on Telegram.

Twitter cited "repeated violations" the site's COVID-19 "misinformation" policy as the reason for Greene's permanent ban Sunday. The lawmaker's personal account was suspended, while her congressional Twitter account remains up.

Other lawmakers, such as Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) who was temporarily suspended from YouTube in the fall, have spoken out against Big Tech companies.

Paul announced in an op-ed for The Washington Examiner that he would no longer post to videos on the site "unless it is to criticize them" and pointed followers to the competing Bongino-backed forum Rumble.

"Those of us who believe that truth comes from disputation and that the marketplace of ideas is a prerequisite for innovation should shun the close-minded censors of Big Tech and take our ideas elsewhere," Paul wrote.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) also echoed similar sentiments, saying in a lengthy statement Monday: "It is clear any speech that does not fit Big Tech’s orthodoxy gets muzzled. America is poorer for that conduct."
