Dan Bongino, a rightwing radio and television personality, was last month after he kept recklessly disseminating misinformation about the epidemic. At the time, Bongino was vague about whether or not to return, claiming that he would attempt to escape to far right safe spaces like Rumble. But now it appears that someone else made a decision for him.
YouTube has decided to permanently ban Bongino. It wasn't because they knew he'd probably return to doing what got him banned in the first place. It was because he used one of his other accounts to post a video calling into question the effectiveness of masks indeed, the same tall claims that got him suspended in the first place
The suspension was put into effect on January 14 and it was intended to last a week, but Bongino couldn't wait to see it ended. The video that got him back was posted on Facebook last Thursday, a mere day before the suspension was to terminate.
A YouTube spokesperson said in a statement that his multiple channels on the video sharing service were terminated because of circumventing our terms of service by posting a video while there was an active strike and suspension as a result of the account. In the near future, he is no longer permitted to use, own or create any other YouTube channels.
Bongino admitted in his video that he "anxiously waited" for getting the boot, telling them: "I dare you to do something about it."
While Bongino is an investor and on which he has twice the followers as he did on YouTube, hes still losing 882,000 subscribers on a service that is far more known than his new home.
