Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) expressed her dismay after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Biden administration in a case related to social media censorship. In a 6-3 decision on Wednesday, the high court overturned a lower court’s ruling that limited the administration’s ability to communicate with social media companies.

The case was brought by two states claiming harm from the government’s efforts to curb misinformation about COVID-19 and elections. “I’m shocked,” Greene told convicted criminal Steve Bannon on a Wednesday podcast. “It’s a war on our First Amendment rights, and this was a heavy blow. This was basically one that may sink the ship.”

“When you’ve got the Supreme Court weighing in, that social media companies can censor Americans’ free speech, that it’s completely fine with the government to join in,” she continued. “Millions of Americans died because of COVID-19, and children are still behind in school”, reported Raw Story.

“Natural immunity all of a sudden became dangerous, and people were murdered on ventilators in the hospital, and our Supreme Court just sided with censorship of people’s ideas.” “With the sociopathic tech overlords, right?” Bannon pressed. “Absolutely,” Greene replied. “You know what, Steve, I can’t process it, because to me, it’s, this was a debilitating blow in our war, and I think it’s, I think it’s bad.”

Greene insisted she was frustrated and “rocked” by the court’s decision. “And I’ll tell you, as a member of Congress, I myself was censored by these social media companies,” she pointed out. “Evidence has shown that I’m — no doubt about that — 100% right.”

“And I paid the price with my own money,” she added. “Nancy Pelosi fined me $2,500 every single day because I refused to wear a mask on the House floor.” “I was treated like the scourge of the earth because I told everybody I’m not vaccinated, and I refused to get the vaccine and will not ever get the vaccine. But this is what the Supreme Court did to not only me but to Americans.”

Greene’s comments highlight the ongoing debate over free speech and government intervention on social media platforms, emphasizing the broader implications of the Supreme Court’s ruling for public discourse and individual rights.
