Twitter Permanently Suspends Steven Bannon’s Account After Talk Of Beheading

Twitter has permanently suspended an account belonging to former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon after posting a tweet on Thursday that suggested that Dr. Anthony Fauci and FBI Director Christopher Wray should be beheaded.

According to CNN, the outrageous comments were made in a video posted to his Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter accounts via a Livestream of Bannon’s “War Room: Pandemic” online show.

Bannon also falsely claimed Trump had won reelection, despite several key states still being too close to call, and said that both Dr. Fauci and Wray should be fired.

Bannon then stepped over the edge, declaring: “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 are gone.”

The video from the Livestream was on Bannon’s Facebook page for about 10 hours on Thursday. It had been viewed almost 200,000 times before Facebook finally removed it, citing its violence and incitement policies.

YouTube removed the video for violating its policy against “inciting violence” by Thursday evening and Twitter announced that it had permanently suspended the account of Bannon’s “War Room” podcast for glorifying violence.
