While YouTube and the mainstream media are portraying Fox News host Dan Bongino’s exodus from the video-sharing platform as a permanent ban, Bongino says it was his choice to leave, not YouTube’s.
Bongino, an investor in YouTube competitor Rumble said last night that he received a warning from YouTube about a video he posted, then posted another video called, “Why I’m leaving YouTube”. In response to that video, YouTube banned Bongino after he had already submitted his resignation from the left-controlled platform.
“YouTube you know is run by communists of course,” Bongino said. “And they’re terrified of me because I’m an investor in [Rumble] which actually believes in free speed so they hate my guts.”
“They were looking for a reason to get rid of me, so I dared question the efficacy of masks,” Bongino said.
In order to enact a suspension of Bongino, YouTube went back into his video posting history to look for policy violations and issued his warning.
“It’s one of those ‘You can’t quit, we’re going to fire you.”
Bongino said he questioned the use of cloth facemasks and their ineffectiveness, a stance now taken by the Centers for Disease Control and health agencies nationwide.
“If masks work, why aren’t masks working,” Bongino said.
