Twitter & YouTube suspend Steven Bannon on same day for joking about beheading


Twitter and YouTube suspended former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon on the same day. The media says he was suspended because he called for NIAID director Dr. Anthony Fauci’s beheading in a video that made the rounds on Twitter and YouTube.

In the video, Bannon called for Fauci and FBI Director Chris Wray to get fired at the start of President Donald Trump’s second term should he be re-elected.

Then he said he’d “like to go a step farther,” but said, “the president’s a kind hearted man.”

He’d like to “go back to the old times of Tudor England” to implement medieval sentences for Fauci and Wray. “I’d put the heads on pikes, right? I’d put them at the two corners of the White House as a warning to Federal Bureaucrats: you either get with the program, or you’re gone,” he said.

That’s actually kind of funny, but that’s my dark sense of humor. He was joking, but the media is horrified.

Newsweek wrote dramatically, “Twitter suspended former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon after he made calls to behead NIAID director Dr. Anthony Fauci in a YouTube video, which has also been removed.”

He wasn’t serious Newsweek!

For a minute, Bannon must have thought he was Kathy Griffin.

Facebook hasn’t suspended him, at least not yet:

Apparently it was for “cyberbullying”. Really? Is Fauci THAT DAMN “sensitive”.

I saw that. One of the guys that works with Bannon was in Philadelphia protest (Raheem) today…..there was a person screaming some horrible crap about Trump. Four years ago, people used to get a visit from the secret service. Like Glenn Beck who was brutal about the President. Beck lost a huge percentage of his audience and never got it back. Good!

And Raheem asked her if she “knew” her dad. I guess that didn’t go to well.

It’s really time to start cracking down hard on these people. If you “say” you’re going to do something, that should warrant, for instance, a citation, with maybe a $1000 fine. It should escalate from there for everything that is counter to “peacefully” assembling. In my day if you started getting into a hostile argument the police would step in and break it up. That would start chipping away at all this.
