Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene calls for all GOP lawmakers to leave Twitter

Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has encouraged all Republican lawmakers to leave the popular social media app Twitter as she was recently banned from the platform. Greene made her suggestion in an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

“I’m encouraging my entire conference … all of them to leave Twitter. Because Twitter has declared war on our party,” she said. “What are we going to do? Just sit here and go ‘oh we’re gonna wait until we get the majority back. And then we’re going to have investigations.’ And then, when we get full control, are we going to pass laws to stop this? Nothing was done in the past and nothing is being done now.”

Greene was suspended from Twitter on Sunday, and from Facebook on Monday, for spreading what the companies called misinformation about COVID-19, a claim with which Greene disagrees.

Twitter had also temporarily restricted Greene’s account in the past for sharing disputed claims over the 2020 presidential election as well as the coronavirus. The tweet that led to the permanent ban included a graph apparently showing deaths related to COVID-19 vaccines.

The Georgia lawmaker added that conservatives should not accept ideologically biased censorship and give further power to the Silicon Valley tech giants. She noted that almost all their political contributions go to Democrats and left-leaning causes.

“You don’t keep eating bad food at a restaurant that keeps serving it to you. You get up and leave, and you go somewhere else where you’re treated well,” she said, continuing on that there are alternatives for conservative people. “What everyone needs to do is do what I did. I went to Gettr, I went to Gab, I went to Telegram. I think everyone should leave and I’m asking my entire conference to do it.”
