Firebrand GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is now calling on conservatives to leave Twitter en mass after the platform decided to permanently suspend her.
As The Daily Wire reports:
“Twitter and the Silicon Valley Cartel have declared war on Republicans,” the Georgia representative wrote to Instagram. “We can make Twitter powerless when we all decide to leave.”
During an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, Greene reiterated the same, emphasizing that Republicans are treated unfairly on Twitter, noting of the company’s inconsistently applied guidelines.
“We don’t have control right now, so Congress, and Republicans in Congress, can do nothing for the American people who have been silenced,” Greene told Carlson. “But when a private company, that is not elected by anyone in this country, declares war on a sitting member of Congress and a sitting president, who happen to both be from the Republican Party, it’s up to our leadership and it’s up to our conference to do something about it.”
“I’m encouraging my entire conference, as a matter of fact I’m asking all of them to leave Twitter,” the representative announced, “Because Twitter has declared war on our party. And what are we going to do, just sit there and go, oh, we’re gonna wait until we get the majority back, and then we’re gonna have investigations, and then when we get full control, are we gonna pass laws to stop this? Nothing was done in the past; nothing was done now.”
Twitter claimed that Greene’s suspension was due to her spreading alleged ‘misinformation.’
