Newly-elected Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R.-Ga., is very outspoken about her views on current events, acting as if she was born in a country where free speech is valued and while some may disagree with what you say, they’d fight to the death for your right to say it.
Sadly, in post-Obama America, that world no longer exists. We live in an age where the President of the United States cannot only be censored but effectively canceled by Big Tech and the corrupt media establishment.
But you would be foolhardy to think that applies only to Donald Trump, as Greene found out on Sunday when Twitter locked her out for allegedly committing “multiple violations” on the social media platform.
The great thing about Twitter’s gig is that the company doesn’t have to tell you what you did wrong or warn you ahead of time, they just slap you down without warning if you cross an invisible line monitored by CEO Jack Dorsey’s Orwellian liberal censors — full disclosure, my own account was locked after I shared Trump’s video message calling on DC protesters to go home.
A Twitter spokesperson told Fox News that Greene’s account “has been temporarily locked out for multiple violations of our civic integrity policy.”
Following her suspension, Greene unleashed a must-see Twitter thread of epic proportions on the social media platform, remind them that they are not ‘the judge of humanity.”
Contrary to how highly you think of yourself and your moral platitude, you are not the judge of humanity.
And you and…

“Dear Twitter, [c]ontrary to how highly you think of yourself and your moral platitude, you are not the judge of humanity. God is. And you and the rest of your pals from the Silicon Valley Cartel are not God. Difficult for you to grasp I know, however it’s the truth,” she explained. “The tweets that you deem “appropriate” and “safe” and “true,” compared to tweets you deem “inciting violence” and “spreading false information” and “claims of election fraud is disputed” are so many times, in the opinion of many, quit hypocritical and false.”
Greene went on to ask the platform why it allows certain content that might be considered “obscene” and/or “offensive,” but silences speech it simply disagrees with.
“For example, [w[hy do you allow these type things on your platform? Porn. Iran’s Ayatollah, who declares his intent to destroy Israel, who is our great ally. Hashtags on tweets like #killtrump?” she queried. “Yet you continuously abuse conservative’s opinions and free speech by canceling us. You see suspending and banning people every time one of the self appointed twitter police cries @twittersafety!” when their feelings are terribly hurt by reading a tweet they disagree with does not make it the right thing to do.”
But her lecture didn’t stop there. Greene went on to accuse the social media giant of fueling the current political divide in America, and urged them to reinstate Trump’s Twitter account, saying that it should allow people to debate freely.
Big Tech has decreed that any reference to a stolen election is verboten, more or less forbidding accusations of election fraud. Greene’s account is still visible and a series of tweets Sunday pushing back on the suggestion that she helped contribute to a lack of turnout among Trump voters during the Senate runoff elections earlier this month.
Calling Gabriel Sterling, a top Republican election official in the state of Georgia, and other “morons,” Greene detailed widely-held concerns about the impact of absentee ballots there.
(Sterling, the voting systems implementation manager for the Georgia Secretary of State’s office, appeared on CNN the night of the special election, to bash Trump.)
“You ran a Nov 3rd election that was stolen bc you idiots at the SOS mailed out millions of absentee ballots to anyone and everyone while GA was an open state,” tweeted the congresswoman.
Twitter flagged the tweet: “This claim of election fraud is disputed, and this Tweet can’t be replied to, retweeted, or liked to a risk of violence.”
This being a similar angle as taken against Trump.
Greene, who the media relentlessly tries to tie to QAnon, released a statement Sunday night denouncing censorship by “socialists.”
“Conservative Americans shouldn’t be afraid to speak their mind,” she said. “They shouldn’t have to fear being canceled by American corporations where they work, do business, and use services. They shouldn’t be scared into submission by Socialists who want to end their way of life.”
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey warned the company’s censorship and ban of users would go well beyond just President Trump’s account, as seen in a secretly recorded video by an “insider whistleblower” at Twitter.
The video was provided to the conservative watchdog group Project Veritas, which shared it online.
“We know we are focused on one account right now,” Dorsey said, in reference to the president. “But this is going to be much bigger than just one account and it’s going to go on for much longer than just this day, and this week, and the next few weeks and go beyond the inauguration. We have to expect that, and we have to be ready for that.”
Echoing the sentiment of millions on the right, Greene recently said she is “tired of Republicans who lay down and allow this country to be ravaged.”
Adding to her being a target perhaps, is that Greene announced last week in a tweet she plans to file articles of impeachment against Joe Biden after his inauguration for “abuse of power.”

“I would like to announce on behalf of the American people, we have to make sure that our leaders are held accountable,” she said during a Newsmax interview. “We cannot have a president of the United States that is willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments, Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies.”
One thing is certain when it comes to the freshman Republican, she’s not about to go quietly into the night.
