Earlier today, Marjorie Taylor Greene(R-GA) was permanently suspended from Twitter for sharing VAERs data on vaccine deaths.
That is election interference and a threat to free speech.
However, the head of the progressive caucus is praising the censorship and calling for more.
Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., said Sunday that Twitterâ€™s permanent ban on the personal account of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., is “a little too late” to erase the damage done by the spread of COVID-19 “disinformation” on social media.
Jayapal, who chairs the Progressive Congressional Caucus, reacted to the news of Greeneâ€™s ban on MSNBCâ€™s “The Sunday Show,” saying social media companies need to be doing “much, much more” to quash the spread of conspiracy theories online.
“Itâ€™s no secret that our social media companies have been part of their algorithms promoting disinformation,” she said. “And I think that these steps are important but, frankly, a little too little and a little too late.
“The reality is itâ€™s not just Marjorie Taylor Greene â€“ all over Twitter, social media, Facebook, all of these companies have been using algorithms that are just about clickbait, not about truth,” she continued. “And so if we are going to take on the disinformation thatâ€™s out there, the big lie, and everything that goes along with it, then yes, this is a part of it but itâ€™s got to be much, much more.
“That said, I think itâ€™s just as well that we take one voice that is deliberately spreading disinformation out of the mix as much as possible,” she added. “Thatâ€™s certainly a good thing.”
