Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia congresswoman, has been temporarily suspended from Facebook, just one day after her personal Twitter account was permanently suspended.
In a GAB post, the congresswoman confirmed her suspension, calling the company’s decision “beyond censorship of speech.”
“I’m an elected member of Congress representing over 70,000 US tax-paying citizens and I represent their voices, values, defend their freedoms, and protect the Constitution,” she said in a statement.
A spokesperson for Facebook’s parent company, Meta, reportedly said on Monday that one of Greene’s posts “violated our policies” and was removed, but would not elaborate.
“Removing her account for this violation is beyond the scope of our policies,” the spokesperson said.
Facebook’s move comes just one day after she was permanently banned from Twitter for spreading misinformation about COVID-19 and vaccines.
Greene claimed a personal attack on her and her freedoms had occurred, heralding the start of a “Communist revolution.”
Marjorie Taylor Greene released a statement after Facebook suspended her:
“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.
Who appointed Twitter and Facebook to be the authorities of information and misinformation?
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.”
