CNN Business has reported on the week-long ban handed out by Twitter to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for her total misuse of its platform to spread misinformation about the Covid-19 vaccine. Greene tweeted that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) “should not approve the covid vaccines” while further stating that they were “failing” and ineffective in reducing the spread of Covid-19. CNN has also posted a video where Greene is seen congratulating a crowd for a low vaccination rate.
Enough is enough. For someone so hell bent on talking about “fake news,” she is prorogating an outright lie. While Twitter’s policy will call for a permanent ban for another Covid-related offense, it is time for them to permanently ban her now. At a time that the Covid rates of highly unvaccinated areas are soaring, this is irresponsible and dangerous on her part. While it will never happen, Greene needs to apologize for her remarks and either step down as Congresswoman or at least announce she is not seeking re-election.
