QAnon Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has been suspended by Twitter as the House prepares to vote on a resolution to expel her from Congress as punishment for her outrageous remarks and behavior.
Twitter has already taken action against Greene once for promoting unfounded conspiracy theories, particularly concerning the 2020 Election, but now the social media giant has suspended her account again just hours before the House takes up a resolution to expel her.
According to CNBC:
Greene, who has previously promoted the baseless pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy and supported calls for violence against Democrats, said in a campaign message that Twitter suspended her account around 1 a.m. Friday “without explanation,” her office told CNBC.
Greene’s account is suspended for 12 hours, according to that campaign message.
Spokespeople for Twitter did not immediately confirm the suspension or provide comment on Greene’s claims.
Greene’s last post before being suspended was an attack on Democrats for moving to expel her.
Democrats have declared me Public Enemy Number One.
Tomorrow, 72+ radical Socialists are introducing a resolution to EXPEL me from Congress.
And it’s all because I stand for the PEOPLE over politicians.

She also retweeted another user complaining about her losing her committee assignments and shared a tweet by Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) pushing falsehoods about the attempted coup at the Capitol on January 6th. Gohmert and Greene joined a few other Republicans to oppose awarding medals to Capitol Police officers for their bravery that day because the resolution correctly referred to the attack on the Capitol as an insurrection.
It seems obvious, therefore, that Twitter suspended her account again for slurring Democrats and pushing falsehoods.
The House voted to remove Greene from her committee assignments earlier this year in response to her outrageous behavior and remarks, including a call for assassinating House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
That particular incident is part of the focus of the expulsion resolution more than 60 Democrats have signed onto in the House.
“I believe some of my Republican colleagues, and one in particular, wish harm upon this legislative body. And I’m not saying this for shock value,” Rep. Jimmy Gomez (D-Calif.) said on the House floor Friday.
“It’s the conclusion I drew after a member of Congress advocated violence against our peers, the speaker and our government,” he continued. “I take no joy in introducing this resolution, but any member who incites political violence and threatens our lives must be expelled, and I’ll do everything I can in my power to protect our democracy and keep all my colleagues safe.”
Greene, like disgraced former President Donald Trump, should be banned from Twitter entirely. Her toxicity doesn’t belong on social media and it certainly does not belong in Congress. Being an elected official should not shield anyone from being held accountable when they violate the rules.
