Marjorie Taylor Greene Says Republicans Must Stop 'Big Tech Censorship'

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) is blasting her fellow Republicans for failing to put an end to "Big Tech Censorship."

Greene asked "what are Republicans even for" while insisting that tech companies were "silencing truth" in a tweet from her official Twitter account on Tuesday. Greene is one of many Republican lawmakers who has repeatedly complained that big tech companies and social media platforms unfairly censor conservative voices.

"If Republicans can't stop Big Tech Censorship, then what can Republicans even do?" tweeted Greene. "Big Tech has gone way past censoring political opinions they don't like, it's silencing truth. If we can't fight to protect truth then what else is left? And what are Republicans even for?"

Greene's tweet came roughly six weeks after she urged "every Republican" to immediately leave Twitter when her personal account was permanently banned for violating policies against COVID-19 misinformation. The Georgia congresswoman resumed tweeting from her official account two days after the ban.

Greene has since shifted some of her social media activity to Gettr, the conservative-focused platform founded by Jason Miller, an ex-spokesman for former President Donald Trump.

At the time, the congresswoman said she was booted from Twitter because she was the wrong type of Republican. Greene later boasted that the ban put her in elite company alongside Donald Trump, who was permanently banished from the platform over concerns about inciting violence following the attack on the Capitol.

"Only two elected Republicans have been kicked off Twitter, me and Donald Trump," Greene posted to Gettr on January 5. "I think my permanent Twitter suspension has more to do with what type of Republican I am. And who at Twitter doesn't donate to me or like my brand Republican."

In a January 27 Gettr post, Greene blamed Communism while denouncing YouTube for permanently banning conservative pundit Dan Bongino and Spotify for "deleting some of Joe Rogan's podcast" amid controversy about him using the n-word and spreading COVID-19 misinformation.

"Communists hate free speech. Communist Democrats and Corporate Communists are the unholy union destroying Americans freedoms," Greene wrote. "The monopolies must be broken up and Communism must be stopped."

The practices of social media companies have been heavily scrutinized by both Republicans and Democrats recently. Greene's call for big tech companies to be broken up found her in a rare moment of agreement with political polar opposite Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez earlier this month.

Greene shared an article about Ocasio-Cortez's call for Facebook to be "broken up" and "subject to antitrust activity" to Gettr on February 3, while commenting that she agreed with the Democrat "for very different reasons."

Greene argued that "Communist Democrats" wanted to break up tech companies to "cancel any and all speech against the globalist agenda," while she wanted to break up the companies "to allow for more freedom of speech, more information, and more competition in the marketplace."

Greene's office declined to comment when contacted by Newsweek.
