Steve Bannon’s YouTube channel, which hosts his “War Room” podcast, was scrubbed Friday evening, making him one of the latest victims in the mass social media purge underway since Wednesday night.
Speaking to TheWrap, a YouTube spokesperson stated that “in accordance with our strikes system, we have terminated Steve Bannon’s channel ‘War Room’ and one associated channel for repeatedly violating our Community Guidelines.”
“As we said yesterday, any channel posting new videos with misleading content that alleges widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election in violation of our policies will receive a strike, a penalty which temporarily restricts uploading or live-streaming. Channels that receive three strikes in the same 90-day period will be permanently removed from YouTube,” said the spokesman.
Twitter user @GraduatedBen said that Bannon’s channel was banned in the middle of a live episode.

This is hardly the first time Bannon has been suppressed by Big Tech. An episode of “War Room” was taken down last November after Bannon’s comments about FBI Director Christopher Wray and Dr. Anthony Fauci.
And back in April of 2020, Twitter suspended Bannon’s “War Room: Pandemic” account without giving a reason, though we can easily surmise that they felt he was spreading “misinformation” about the COVID-19 pandemic:
Long time ally of President Trump Stephen K. Bannon, along with co-hosts Jason, Raheem Kassam, and Jack Maxey launched “War Room: Pandemic” in early January as a platform for analysis and updates on the Chinese Coronavirus pandemic.
Many point out that while politicians and the establishment media was consumed by the impeachment story of President Trump in January, those involved with “War Room: Pandemic” were a leading alarm bell concerning the dangers of the Chinese Coronavirus and the attempted cover up by the Chinese Communist Party.
This is going to get worse before it gets better.
Free Speech Platform Gab Receives 3 Million New Users in 12 Days
Fleeing the tyranny of Big Tech.

3 million new users in 12 days.

The rush of new users to Gab may represent a unprecedented development in the history of the internet. It’s likely that no social media service has ever signed up as many users in such a short period of time before.
Gab has received an even more historic month in terms of web traffic, attracting 24 million unique users.

All of Gab’s server infrastructure is owned by the company itself, a guarantor of resiliency in the face of Big Tech censorship and deplatforming. The service has suffered from growing pains over the past month as tyrants of Silicon Valley enact censorship and political purges in a manner never before seen, but Gab has onboarded more than ten new servers in its data centers in response to the user influx.
Gab’s total user base possibly numbers in the tens of millions by now, although it remains to be seen if the new signups will continue to use Gab in the months and years to come.
The hitpiece libel group Anti-Defamation League is demanding that Democrat legislators find a way to criminalize Gab, terrified that its base will have a means to engage in political speech without fear of censorship and persecution.
Administrators of Parler, a competing free speech social media platform, expect to return their service to the internet by the end of the month. Parler was deplatformed by Amazon Web Services after the raucous January 6th protest at the US Capitol, revealing a critical point of weakness in their service.
