Marjorie Taylor Greene is suspended from Twitter again - this time for a WEEK - for saying vaccines are 'failing' and 'do not reduce spread of the virus'

 Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has been suspended from Twitter for a week for saying the COVID-19 vaccines are 'failing' because they 'do not reduce the spread of the virus'.

A Twitter spokesperson told   that Greene's account 'will be in read-only mode for a week due to repeated violations of the Twitter Rules.' 

The Georgia Republican tweeted Monday night that the 'The FDA should not approve the covid vaccines. There are too many reports of infection & spread of #COVID19 among vaccinated people.' 

'These vaccines are failing & do not reduce the spread of the virus & neither do masks,' she wrote. 

'Vaccine mandates & passports violate individual freedoms,' the congresswoman added. 

Fully vaccinated people are still contracting COVID-19, but data shows they're being protected against severe disease, hospitalization and death.

Greene tweeted Monday night that the FDA should not approve the COVID vaccines because there were 'too many reports' of breakthrough cases. Twitter marked the tweet misleading and blocked users from interacting with it 

As of July 26, the latest date for which data is available, there were at least 6,587 so-called 'breakthrough' cases reported among 163 million fully vaccinated individuals.

Of those cases, 6,239 resulted in hospitalization and 1,263 peopled died.

Twitter flagged the tweet saying it contained misleading information. It also blocked users from retweeting or liking the message. 

'The Tweet you referenced was labeled in line with our COVID-19 misleading information policy. The account will be in read-only mode for a week due to repeated violations of the Twitter Rules,' a Twitter spokesperson told DailyMail.com. 

Twitter has a five-strike rule for users who spread COVID-19 misinformation. 

CNN first reported her suspension. 

Greene sent a statement to The Washington Examiner that continued to spread COVID-19 vaccine misinformation. 

She also complained about conservatives being targeted by double standards.

'Why does Dr. Fauci only harshly criticize bikers at Sturgis riding in open air with no masks but is silent on Obama's "sophisticated" birthday party super-spreader event for Hollywood and Democrat elites? Why is it right and moral to allow tens of thousands of COVID positive "migrants" into our country and ship them all over to every state in the taxpayer’s dime yet force our children to mask up for school?' she mused. 

'But if MTG dare says the truth, Twitter suspends me because the truth is so offensive to the fragile hypocrites all over Twitter!' she said, referring to herself in the third-person.  

'They will allow porn on Twitter. They will allow posts about parents transitioning their children and changing their gender on Twitter. But Twitter won’t allow any real discussion of the truth from an elected congresswoman because Twitter only cares about the Democrats communist agenda for America,' she continued. 

'Good thing my voters could care less about Twitter,' the Georgia Republican added.  

CNN estimated that Greene only had one strike to go before she was permanently banned from the platform. 

In July, Greene was banned from Twitter for 12 hours after two of her tweets on COVID-19 were labeled misleading.

On July 18 she posted: 'This is why no entity should force NON-FDA approved vaccines or masks. Instead help people protect their health by defeating obesity, which will protect them from covid complications & death, and many other health problems. We should invest in health, not human experimentation.' 

And on July 19, she wrote: '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.'    

Twitter labeled the tweet misleading, adding 'Learn why health officials recommend a vaccine for most people.' 

Greene got suspended from Twitter for 12 hours in July after Twitter said she violated their COVID misinformation policy with two tweets

Prior to the July ban, Greene had to walk back comments she made in May comparing COVID-19 vaccinations and mask mandates to the Holocaust. 

'I have made a mistake and it's really bothered me for a couple weeks now,' Greene said at a June news conference. 

She said there was 'nothing comparable' to the Holocaust.

'I know the words I stated were hurtful and for that I am very sorry,' Greene said.   

In January, Greene also got locked out of her Twitter account days after the January 6 Capitol riot as she falsely claimed that officials in Georgia were 'begged by Republicans to fix our elections' costing former President Donald Trump and two Georgia Republican senators their races. 

Requests for comment to Greene's office by DailyMail.com on Tuesday morning were not immediately returned.
