QAnon Rep. Furious That She Was Suspended From Twitter And Not Parents Of Trans Kids

QAnon devotee and Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has been suspended from Twitter yet again, for the fourth time.

And because she is simply incapable of thinking about absolutely anything else, Greene immediately turned it into an opportunity to attack transgender children.

According to a statement she released, Greene is incensed she was suspended from Twitter for spreading bold-faced lies about the pandemic and vaccines, but transgender kids' parents are allowed to tweet willy-nilly.

If this makes absolutely no sense to you it's because it does, in fact, make absolutely no sense, and it's led to a tidal wave of criticism of Greene. You can see the tweet that started it all below.

Twitter has stated it suspended Greene because her tweet was in violation of the platform's policies against pandemic and vaccine disinformation.

Greene's tweet read:

"The FDA should not approve the covid vaccines."
"There are too many reports of infection & spread of #COVID19 among vaccinated people."
"These vaccines are failing & do not reduce the spread of the virus & neither do masks."
"Vaccine mandates & passports violate individual freedoms."

It's important to note that not one word of that is true. So-called "breakthrough infections" in the fully vaccinated, while worrying, are still rare compared to unvaccinated infections, and the fully vaccinated account for a mere fraction of cases--less than 3%--of those hospitalized as of last week.

As for masks, that science has been settled for a long, long time.

But none of that stopped Greene from making up her own facts about the pandemic, claiming in a statement that the virus was a "Communist Chinese bioweapon" and that unspecified vaccines cause blood clots and miscarriages. None of that is true either.

And then she moved on to being outraged that trans people are allowed to use Twitter when she isn't.

"They will allow posts about parents transitioning their children and changing their gender on Twitter."
"But Twitter won't allow any real discussion of the truth from an elected Congresswoman because Twitter only cares about the Democrat Communist agenda for America."
"It's a good thing my voters couldn't care less about Twitter."

Greene did not specify why she is so upset about Twitter given that her voters couldn't care less about it.

Anyway, people on Twitter were enraged by Greene's antics, and her suspension led to a chorus of calls for her permanent banning from the platform.










Those calling for Greene's permanent banning may just get their wish. As this is Greene's fourth suspension, her next will result in her permanent removal according to Twitter's policies.
