Jan. 2, 2022Updated 2:53 p.m. ET

Twitter on Sunday permanently suspended the personal account of Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican of Georgia, after the company said she had violated its Covid-19 misinformation policies.

Twitter suspended Ms. Greene's account after she tweeted on Saturday, falsely, about "extremely high amounts of Covid vaccine deaths." She included a misleading chart that pulled information from a government database of unverified raw data called the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, or VAERS, a decades-old system that relies on self-reported cases from patients and health care providers.

Twitter said that Ms. Greene had a fifth "strike," which meant that her account will not be restored. The company had issued her a fourth strike in August after she falsely posted that the vaccines were "failing." Ms. Greene was given a third strike less than a month before that when she had tweeted that Covid-19 was not dangerous and that vaccines should not be mandated.

Ms. Greene's official Congressional account, @RepMTG, remains active because tweets from that account did not violate the service's rules.

"We've been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy," Katie Rosborough, a Twitter spokeswoman, said in a statement. The company allows accounts to submit an appeal and will potentially reverse the suspension if the violating post is proven to be factual.

On the alternative social messaging platform Telegram, Ms. Greene said that Twitter "is an enemy to America and can't handle the truth."

Her suspension comes as coronavirus cases have surged again in the United States from the highly infectious Omicron variant. New York State recorded over 85,000 new coronavirus cases on the last day of 2021, the highest one-day total in the state since the pandemic began, officials announced on Saturday.

Twitter has long banned users from sharing misinformation that could lead to harm. In rare cases, the company has permanently banned high-profile accounts, including the account of former President Donald J. Trump, over a risk of "further incitement of violence" after a mob of Trump loyalists stormed the U.S. Capitol last Jan. 6.

There is currently no evidence of widespread major side effects from the coronavirus vaccines. Last month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Johnson & Johnson's vaccine could trigger a rare blood clotting disorder now linked to dozens of cases and at least nine deaths in the United States in the past year. The agency recommended using other approved vaccines instead.

The VAERS database, which is managed by the Food and Drug Administration and the C.D.C., has been cited in many coronavirus falsehoods to push the idea that side effects from the Covid-19 vaccines have been widespread and serious.

In March, Twitter introduced a policy that explained the penalties for sharing lies about the virus and vaccines. People who violate that policy are subject to escalating punishments known as strikes and could face a permanent ban if they repeatedly share misinformation about the virus.

Ms. Greene won the election for Georgia's 14th Congressional District in August, after rising to prominence by posting unabashed support for President Trump and for QAnon, a movement tied to the baseless conspiracy theory that a group of global liberal elites run a child sex ring that Mr. Trump would stop.

Ms. Greene repeatedly posted the QAnon slogan on Facebook and Twitter and had previously called "Q" — the anonymous online account that set off the QAnon conspiracy movement — a "patriot" who was "worth listening to." Last year, Ms. Greene heavily promoted the false claim that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Mr. Trump, tweeting in January that there was "MASS voter fraud on a scale that should terrify every American regardless of political party."

The Coronavirus Pandemic: Key Things to Know


The global surge. As the Omicron variant sweeps across the planet, the global tally of new coronavirus cases has for the first time passed one million per day on average. The previous daily average global case record set last April has already been broken three times this week.

Canceled flights. With Covid surge, has come thousands of flight cancellations, as airlines are unable to adequately staff their flights. Looking for relief, the airline industry pushed the CDC to shorten its recommended isolation period for Americans infected with Covid-19. On Monday, it reduced the recommended quarantine period to five days for those without symptoms.

Around the world. South Africa announced that its Omicron wave had passed without a large spike in deaths. Case counts in the country are down 30 percent in the last week. The announcement offered cautious hope to other countries grappling with the fast-spreading variant.

Staying safe. Worried about spreading Covid? Keep yourself and others safe by following some basic guidance on when to test and how to use at-home virus tests (if you can find them). Here is what to do if you test positive for the coronavirus.

But it was Ms. Greene's false proclamations about the coronavirus, including opposing vaccines and masks as tools to curb the pandemic, that finally got her suspended from Twitter. In July, Ms. Greene argued that Covid-19 was not dangerous for people unless they were obese or over age 65, and said vaccines should not be required.

In August, Ms. Greene said on Twitter, "The F.D.A. should not approve the covid vaccines." She said that there were too many reports of infection and the spread of the coronavirus among vaccinated people, and that the vaccines were "failing" and "do not reduce the spread of the virus & neither do masks."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's current guidance states, "Covid-19 vaccines are effective against severe disease and death."

Imran Ahmed, the chief executive of the Center for Countering Digital Hate, which published research on the dozen most prominent social media influencers spreading misinformation about vaccines, said it suited Ms. Greene to portray her suspension as part of a pattern of moves by Twitter to censor conservatives.

"In fact, it is for the banal reason that she's a superspreader of lies" that Ms. Greene was suspended, Mr. Ahmed said.

He also criticized Twitter for not doing more to be consistent in its suspensions of high-profile users who post misinformation. "While the suspension of Representative Greene's account for propagating deadly disinformation appears to be a valid enforcement of stated rules, it is the piecemeal enforcement that lends itself to being perceived as political," Mr. Ahmed said.

Applauding the censorship of someone's free speech due to one's hatred of the person reminded me of Martin Niemöller's 1946 remorseful poem:

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist

Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist

Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist

Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew

Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

.

Be careful what you wish for.

If that were true, Twitter would have permanently banned the Ayatollah Khomeini years ago. That terrorist still has an account.

If that were true, Twitter would have banned various known Taliban terrorists. They, too, still have accounts.

If that were true, Twitter wouldn't have waited 12 hours to block racist "Uncle Tim" trends that targeted Senator Tim Scott.

List of people censored by Twitter - Infogalactic: the planetary knowledge core

  • On August 28th, 2021,   Alex Berenson , former New York Times reporter and the author of 13 novels, two non-fiction books, was permanently suspended from Twitter for "repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation rules" [1] . He has since published several books and continues writing on Substack [2] .
  • On June 6th, 2021, American author and feminist   Naomi Wolf   was suspended after tweeting about   COVID-19   vaccines [3] , including claiming the vaccines were a "software platform that can receive uploads", comparing Dr.   Anthony Fauci   to   Satan , waste products had to be separated from vaccinated vs unvaccinated people, and an image of an adult film star dressed up as a doctor.

Berenson is a Yale grad....

So is Wolf, a former political adviser to both Gore and Bill Clibton.

On February 4, 2021, Senate candidate Shiva Ayyadurai (@va_shiva) was permanently banned after "he specifically mentioned one particular official in Galvin's office, Michelle Tassinari, whom he claims was part of the plot to keep him from his rightful seat in the Senate by destroying one million electronic ballots

Ayyadurai claims to be n Independent.

If that were true, Twitter would have permanently banned the Ayatollah Khomeini years ago. That terrorist still has an account.

Oops,

On January 22, 2021, an account "believed to be linked to Iran's supreme leader" Ayatollah Ali Khamenei (@khamenei_site) was permanently banned after posting an image of Donald Trump playing golf captioned in Farsi "Revenge is certain".

Being banned by Twitter is not censorship. Censorship only applies to the government fining or arresting you for your speech or actions, so unless you can prove that the government was behind her ban you didn't have an example of censorship.

Twitter is private property and banning her is no different than Perrie enforcing the TOS on this site.

Yes, politicians lie on both sides. None of that has anything to do with companies beholden to their shareholders and not run by the government deciding what content they want on their platform.

Where are the consequences of saying Desantis was on vacation when he was actually still virtually working and going to support his wife's cancer treatment?

Again, doesn't make a fuck wad of difference, politicians, social media companies, random dip shits, everyone is entitled to their opinions whether true or false. If some right wing dipshit conservative is so fucking desperate to push their bullshit narrative and none of the existing social media companies are willing to be caught dead shilling their hilariously flawed non-logic and moronic narrative then they can go start their own fucking social media company. How is that so fucking hard for right wing conservatives to understand? Is it some sort of nation wide learning disability that they all share? There is no violation of the constitution, get over yourselves, the constant victim moaning to get attention is beyond old and tired, it's just really sad to watch.

Those platforms have the right to deny her lies and mis-dis-information and PERMANENTLY BAN HER IGNORANT ASS.
