A few days ago, Joe and his lackey US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy came out and said that vaccine misinformation was a leading cause in killing people.
According to Times of Israel,
After the White House received the report last week, US President Joe Biden said Friday that social media companies are “killing people” by failing to police misinformation on their platforms about COVID-19 vaccines, which have repeatedly been found to be both safe and effective.
Biden’s comments came a day after US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy declared misinformation about the vaccines a threat to public health, and as US officials advised that deaths and serious illness from the virus are almost entirely preventable thanks to the vaccines.
Misinformation poses an imminent and insidious threat to our nation’s health,” Murthy said during remarks on Thursday at the White House. “We must confront misinformation as a nation. Lives are depending on it.”
After these off-the-wall, unfounded statements, the White House had demanded that Facebook and Twitter go into full censorship mode.
Too often, he said, the platforms are built in ways that encourage, not counter, the spread of misinformation.
“We are asking them to step up,” Murthy said. “We can’t wait longer for them to take aggressive action.”
At first, it seemed like social media platforms had finally had enough. In fact, Facebook pushed back, stating that Joe Biden was not basing his accusations in any form of reality.
Facebook spokesperson Dani Lever responded to Biden: “We will not be distracted by accusations which aren’t supported by the facts. The fact is that more than 2 billion people have viewed authoritative information about COVID-19 and vaccines on Facebook, which is more than any other place on the internet. More than 3.3 million Americans have also used our vaccine finder tool to find out where and how to get a vaccine. The facts show that Facebook is helping save lives. Period.”
For a moment, Americans thought that the war between the Left and free speech had an unlikely ally in social media platforms.
However, after just a few hours, Twitter folded to the pressure of the White House like a deflating balloon.
Twitter has suspended Marjorie Taylor Greene’s account. Their reason? The same exact reason that Joe Biden told them to use.
And just like that, the great censoring has dove into a full-scale war digital war over free speech.
Axios has more on this developing situation.
Twitter announced Monday that it’s suspending the account of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) for 12 hours.
Check out their reasoning for doing this.
“We took enforcement action on the account you referenced (@mtgreenee) for violations of the Twitter Rules, specifically the COVID-19 misleading information policy,” Twitter said in an emailed statement.
So what tweet did MTG release that was so offensive and misleading? Here it is.
The controversial #COVID19 vaccines should not be forced on our military for a virus that is not dangerous for non-obese people and those under 65.
With 6,000 vax related deaths and many concerning side effects reported, the vax should be a choice not a mandate for everyone. https://t.co/JhYg3acrrK

We can all see how dangerous this is. First of all, the beginning of that tweet is the statement of her personal opinion. It’s not a statement of fact.
Her second half is in response to another person’s tweet. The figures she has mentioned regarding vaccine-related complications are well documented.
Bottom line, MTG was just suspended for having an opinion on someone else’s opinion about mandatory vaccines.
Because her opinion didn’t line up with Joe Biden’s, she got banned for 12 hours.
Yet the media continues to say that Conservative’s complaints about censorship are unfounded. That they are NOT being singled out any more than the Left.
Their reasoning? Because they paid NYU for a study that said so.
Researchers at New York University have released a new study that dispels the allegations made repeatedly by conservative lawmakers and members of the conservative media that Big Tech companies intentionally censor their viewpoints.
This is laughable. The Left truly thinks Americans are so naive that they will dismiss censorship happening right in front of them simply because a liberal college releases a study saying so?
They couldn’t even get an ivy league college to do it.
Look at the massive number of conservative viewpoints being banned from Twitter. Even President Trump, the person with the highest position in the world, got taken off.
The unfairness and malice is clear when Joe Biden and Kamala are free to use Twitter and other social media platforms to falsely accuse vaccine skeptics of “killing people”
It’s not a coincidence that this is happening to MTG days after the Biden demands or while she is in the midst of holding Freedom events with Matt Gaetz.
What is happening to Marjorie Taylor Greene is political. It’s also immoral.
