Defying heavy criticsm of its censorship policies, Twitter today suspended the account of newly-elected Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, for 12 hours for violating its unexplained rules. The suspension came after Rep. Greene, who is a strong supporter of President Trump, in a recent tweet blamed the defeat of two Georgia senators on state leaders for failing to “fix our elections.”
“While in this state, you can still browse Twitter, but you’re limited to only sending direct messages to your followers — no tweets, retweets, or likes,” said the social media platform that has been censoring conservatives and others tweeting about problems with elections.
In a statement, Rep. Greene said, “The borderline monopolistic stranglehold a few Big Tech companies have on the American political discourse is out of control. If a conservative dares to utter a political opinion that is deemed unapproved by the internet police they are now subject to false accusations of ‘inciting violence’ simply for having an conservative view.”
Twitter’s censorship of a duly-elected member of Congress for expressing an opinion on an issue of national importance that is contrary to that of the incoming ruling party is a further example of the creeping fascism that is occuring in America. It is becoming increasingly apparent that Big Tech has allied itself with the Democrat Party to create a totalitarian chokehold on what Americans will be allowed to say or to read.
