Trump slams ‘low-life Twitter’ over Marjorie Taylor Greene ban

( Former President Donald Trump is sounding off on Twitter yet again, though this time it has nothing to do with what the Big Tech company is doing to him.

On Monday, Trump said Twitter is a “disgrace to democracy” after it banned the account of Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene.

In a statement released through Trump’s Save America PAC, the former president said:

“[Twitter] shouldn’t be allowed to do business in this Country. Marjorie Taylor Greene has a huge constituency of honest, patriotic, hard-working people. They don’t deserve what’s happened to them on places like low-life Twitter and Facebook.”

In making this statement, the former president also urged all of his followers to “drop off Twitter and Facebook … They’re boring, have only a Radical Left point of view, and are hated by everyone. They are a disgrace to our nation.”

On Sunday, Twitter decided to permanently ban Greene’s personal account from their social media platform. That was after the company said she earned her fifth strike for allegedly spreading misinformation on their platform.

In a statement sent to the Washington Examiner, a spokesperson for Twitter said:

“We permanently suspended the account you referenced (@mtgreenee) for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy. We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy.”

In 2021 Greene’s account was suspended a few times because of what Twitter said was her spreading misinformation about both the coronavirus pandemic and the 2020 presidential election.

Not one to be silenced easily, Greene instantly responded to Twitter’s actions on her Telegram account. She called the Big Tech company “an enemy to America [that] can’t handle the truth.”

Not to be outdone, Facebook suspended Greene’s account on their platform for 24 hours after news of the permanent Twitter ban was released.

On social media platform Gettr, Greene said Facebook locked her out of her account for 24 hours. Her message read:

“Facebook has joined Twitter in censoring me. This is beyond censorship of speech.”

In the Facebook post that got her account suspended, Greene said the U.S. is “no longer free” due to the various mandates that are being put in place around the country to stop the spread of COVID-19.

One of the main examples she used is calling people who are unvaccinated but healthy a “subclass.” Her post stated that masks that children wear make them sick, as well as that “extremely high amounts of COVID vaccine deaths are ignored and government forced vaccine mandates increase.”

On Gettr, Greene posted:

“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.”

In a statement, a spokesperson for Meta, which is now Facebook’s parent company, said Greene violated the company’s policies, but that they wouldn’t be permanently banning her from their platform. The spokesperson said:

“Removing her account for this violation is beyond the scope of our policies.”
