a QAnon supporter, a white supremacist, an Islamophobe, and an anti-Semite walk into a bar…

Hello, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who was Twitter-suspended because of the “borderline monopolistic stranglehold of Big Tech”. Whatever that is.

“The radicalization of the Republican Party has altered the world of conservative media, which is, in turn, accelerating that radicalization.”

Text: Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Republican nominee for Georgia’s 14th congressional district, is like a lot of white women you might encounter in the suburbs. She has long blonde hair and does CrossFit. She wears cute dangly earrings, tasteful blouses, and sheath dresses you could get off the rack at Ann Taylor. She was born in 1974, and received a business degree from the University of Georgia; she and her husband purchased a construction company in an Atlanta suburb in 2002. And like an increasing number of suburban women, Greene has publicly supported QAnon, both in videos on Facebook and Q-related articles she wrote for a now-defunct far-right website called American Truth Seekers.

Text: A common thread among many of the QAnon theories is that there exists a group of “elites”—George Soros, the Clintons, and other enemies of Donald Trump—who are responsible for horrible deeds, and the president is working covertly to stop them. Perhaps the most extreme example (which Greene has not herself espoused) is that those elites are kidnapping children and drinking their blood. During COVID, Q has expanded to include false theories about the virus (it isn’t real, masks don’t work, the vaccine is dangerous and should be avoided at all costs) and George Floyd (a crisis actor). Just to be absolutely clear, there is no evidence that any of these preposterous notions is true.

Twitter said Sunday that it had temporarily suspended the personal account of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) following “multiple” violations of the platform's content policy.

In a statement to The Hill, a Twitter spokesperson confirmed that “the account referenced has been temporarily locked out for multiple violations of our civic integrity policy.”

Greene said in a statement Sunday that her suspension was the result of “the borderline monopolistic stranglehold a few Big Tech companies have on the American political discourse.”
