GOP Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has now been temporarily suspended from Twitter after tweeting information that was alleged to be ‘misinformation.’

As The New York Times reports:

SAN FRANCISCO — Twitter said on Monday that it was suspending Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene from its service for 12 hours after she posted messages that violated its policy against sharing misleading information about the coronavirus.

Ms. Greene, Republican of Georgia, has been an outspoken opponent of vaccines and masks as tools to curb the pandemic. In tweets on Sunday and Monday, she argued that Covid-19 was not dangerous for people unless they were obese or over age 65, and said vaccines should not be required.

But cases of the coronavirus are on the rise, and the highly contagious Delta variant accounts for more than half of new infections in the United States, federal health officials said this month. In Ms. Greene’s home state, Georgia, new cases have increased 193 percent in the past two weeks.

Twitter said Ms. Greene’s tweets were misinformation, and it barred her from the service until Tuesday. “We took enforcement action on the account @mtgreenee for violations of the Twitter Rules, specifically the Covid-19 misleading information policy,” a Twitter spokesman said. The company also added labels to Ms. Greene’s posts about the vaccines, calling them “misleading” and pointing to information about the safety of the inoculations.

The move comes in the wake of the Biden administration pressuring social media companies to crack down on speech that the Democrat deemed to be illegitimate.

Good! People are dying because they believe the BS that is being spread by fools that just do not care.

Total BS. VAERS data shows that there were more deaths from the “vaccines” the week before last than from the virus itself. They are a far cry from “safe” and it’s anyone’s guess what the long term effects will be from this experimental gene therapy. People have a right to state their opinions, unless you would rather live in China or Russia.

Exactly! The media, CDC and of course Dr Fukki are not telling us any of that information.
Personally, I’m incredibly scared of this jab!

So go ahead and get your vaccine. You think it’s safe after so many people are dying after getting vaccinated, or having serious health problems. You’re another troll trying to be heard with your head up your ass

So far 45000 people have passed away from the Vaccines and others have had serious side affects and even strokes, heavy bleeding, miscarriages and more. It is an experimental MRNA Bio Weapon containing spike proteins (Nano Particles. Mercury and Aluminum plus many other poisons and aborted baby tissue. Pure evil
