‘Dear Twitter, you are not the judge of humanity’: GOP freshman blasts Twitter for censorship

The freshman representative also announced last week that she plans to file articles of impeachment against Joe Biden after his inauguration for “abuse of power.”

Newly-elected Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, (R-GA) is making major moves in her first month as a congresswoman. 

Greene is undoubtedly outspoken when it comes to her views on current events, which landed her a spot in the “Banned from Twitter Club.” No, that isn’t a real club, but maybe it should be. 

Greene was locked out of her Twitter account Sunday for allegedly committing “multiple violations” on the platform. 

Following her suspension, Greene unleashed a smashing Twitter thread, reminding the Big Tech giant that they are not “the judge of humanity.” 

“Dear Twitter, contrary to how highly you think of yourself and your moral platitude, you are not the judge of humanity. God is,” she said. “And you and the rest of your pals from the Silicon Valley Cartel are not God. Difficult for you to grasp I know, however it’s the truth,” she urged. 

“The tweets that you deem ‘appropriate’ and ‘safe’ and ‘true,’ compared to tweets you deem ‘inciting violence’ and ‘spreading false information’ and ‘claims of election fraud is disputed’ are so many times, in the opinion of many, quite hypocritical and false.” 

Greene went on to beg perhaps the most important question of the century: why do they allow content that might be considered “obscene” but silence speech they disagree with? 

“For example, [why] do you allow these types of things on your platform? Porn. Iran’s Ayatollah, who declares his intent to destroy Israel, who is our greatest ally. Hashtags on tweets like #killtrump?” she asked. 

“Yet you continuously abuse conservative’s opinions and free speech by canceling us. You see, suspending and banning people every time one of the self appointed twitter police cries ‘@twittersafety!’ when their feelings are terribly hurt by reading a tweet they disagree with does not make it the right thing to do.” 

She continued to accuse the platform of feuling the current political divide in America. 

“Actually, you are playing a very big role in the dangerous divide of Americans and violating people’s guaranteed right of free speech,” she wrote. “As you know, there are always consequences to every action. You learned that recently after you banned @realdonaldtrump. Within days of banning him, your stock tumbled 12% and you lost $5 billion in market share.” 

Greene also released a statement Sunday night denouncing censorship by “socialists.” 

“Conservative Americans shouldn’t be afraid to speak their mind,” she said. “They shouldn’t have to fear being canceled by American corporations where they work, do business, and use services. They shouldn’t be scared into submission by Socialists who want to end their way of life.” 

This isn’t the only thing Greene has been vocal about. 

The freshman representative also announced last week that she plans to file articles of impeachment against Joe Biden after his inauguration for “abuse of power.” 

“I would like to announce on behalf of the American people, we have to make sure that our leaders are held accountable,” she said during a Newsmax interview, according to BizPacReview. “We cannot have a president of the United States that is willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments, Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies.”

    You need to file impeachment’s for Kamala Harris too for inciting riots across the country and raising money to get these criminals out of jail.

      Yes, that needs to be done by “we the people” as it is up to us now to continue what President Trump worked so hard for! We CANNOT let those evil, lying people keep getting away with their antics and delusions! Pelosi is a very dangerous and manipulative person to all Americans, both sides. They refuse to see that in her but she needs to be held for crimes against us!

Gunman In Highland Park Shooting Was ‘Dressed In Women’s Clothing’

Published

Police

The suspected gunman who opened fire at a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, on Monday was wearing women’s clothing as a disguise, police announced Tuesday.

The attack killed six people and injured dozens more, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek. The suspect, 22-year-old Robert E. Crimo III, was apprehended by police later that day near Lake Forest, Illinois.

“During the attack, Crimo was dressed in women’s clothing,” said Sgt. Christopher Covelli, of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, FOX 10 reported. “Investigators do believe he did this to conceal his facial tattoos and his identity and help him during the escape with the other people who were fleeing the chaos.”

“He brought a high-powered rifle to this parade,” Covelli said. “He accessed the roof of a business via a fire escape ladder and began opening fire on the innocent Independence Day celebration-goers.”

“After the shooting, Crimo blended in with the crowd and walked to his mother’s home in the area where he borrowed her vehicle, Covelli said. A member of the community spotted Crimo driving and called 911,” FOX 10 reported. “Crimo was pulled over and arrested during a traffic stop about five miles north of the shooting.”

Investigators have interrogated Crimo and reviewed his social media but have not been able to determine a motive for the attack, Covelli said.

Democrats Introduce ‘Transgender Bill Of Rights’

Published

on

On Tuesday, House Democrats introduced a “Transgender Bill of Rights” to “protect and codify the rights of transgender and nonbinary people under the law and ensure their access to medical care, shelter, safety, and economic security.”

Led by Democrat Reps. Pramila Jayapal (WA), David Cicilline (RI), Marie Newman (IL), Mark Takano (CA), and Ritchie Torres (NY), HR 1209 proposes “amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics in public accommodations and federally funded programs and activities.”

“As we witness Republicans and an extremist Supreme Court attack and roll back the fundamental rights of trans people across our country, and as state legislatures across the country target our trans community with hateful, bigoted, and transphobic attacks, we are standing up and saying enough is enough,” said Jayapal, the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and co-chair of the Transgender Equality Task Force.

“Our Trans Bill of Rights says clearly to the trans community across the country that we see you and we will stand with you to ensure you are protected and given the dignity and respect that every person should have,” Jayapal added.

The bill seeks to increase the ability of children to get permanent and life changing surgeries by “eliminating unnecessary governmental restrictions on the provision of, and access to, gender-affirming medical care and counseling for transgender and nonbinary adults, adolescents, and children.”

The bill will additionally ensure that biological male students are allowed to compete in girls’ sports by amending federal “education laws to ensure that they protect students from discrimination based on sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics, and guarantee students’ right to participate in sports on teams that best align with their gender identity.”

Federal education laws will also be amended to allow students to :use school facilities that best align with their gender identity,” meaning that biological males would be allowed to use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms.

The bill expands beyond “transgender rights” to also ban states from making laws restricting abortion by “codifying the right to abortion.”
