At this nightmarish juncture in history, a conservative banned from social media is a tale so common it hardly stings any longer. It simply reminds us that, unfortunately, the dystopian clown world created by Big Tech liberals and progressive politicians is not welcoming of anyone who happens to hold a right-of-center viewpoint.
Conservatives must take extra precaution in protecting their content, their art, and their intellectual property as corporate leftists and Big Tech behemoths ramp up the communist war against so-called “misinformation.”
Luckily for us, other platforms exist that allow conservative creators to flourish and express themselves. This is Dan Bongino’s saving grace.
On Wednesday, conservative broadcaster and Fox News host Dan Bongino was permanently banned by YouTube. The social media platform claimed Bongino tried to evade a ban using his multiple accounts.
The evasion included Bongino uploading new video content to his primary video channel while a second channel used to share short video clips from his radio program was actively suspended due to YouTube’s COVID-19 misinformation policy.
Both of Bongino’s YouTube channels have now been shut down and he will no longer be able to create a new channel, a spokesman revealed.
Earlier in January, Bongino said his YouTube account had been temporarily suspended and demonetized for 30 days. His suspended channel had nearly 900,000 subscribers.
Bongino, who also hosts programs on Fox News and Fox Nation, has increasingly shifted his focus to the free speech video platform Rumble. On Wednesday, the Bongino Report noted his Rumble account has topped two million subscribers, more than twice the number of subscribers he had reached on YouTube.

Bongino is also noted as an investor in Rumble.
The conservative broadcaster is certainly no stranger to controversy. Last year, the popular radio host and podcaster threatened to leave his radio program over its vaccine mandate, even though Bongino has been vaccinated. The issue led to an article from a Washington Post reporter that led to Bongino blasting the writer.
Since everyone is talking about @eosnos’ excellent profile of Dan Bongino, I wanted to share an email that Dan sent me after I published a story last week (featuring his input) about his pledge to quit his Cumulus Media radio show: https://t.co/YQOjrCNh4G pic.twitter.com/ZuSARjICqu

As the war on free speech ramps up to level 20, it’s become imperative for conservatives to establish themselves on alternate platforms, even if the audience doesn’t initially approach that of mainstream platforms.
Let’s face it: we can’t win the fight on our own and the Biden regime surely isn’t any help.
