More than one week after YouTube suspended radio host Dan Bongino’s account for COVID misinformation, the former Secret Service agent said he will not post another show on the platform. Bongino announced Tuesday what he claims will be his last video on the platform.  

“You will not be finding any more of my videos here on YouTube. This will be the last one. So, I give YouTube the collective double-barrel middle finger,” he said.

Last week, Bongino referred to YouTube as a “free-speech hating platform.”

“The message is freedom and liberty, and if YouTube is on the side of censorship, anti-freedom, and anti-liberty, then I will no longer give them my content for free,” said Bongino. “I don’t lose anything, but YouTube does.”

Bongino was suspended and demonetized from posting content for one week on YouTube for comments on his show that suggested mask-wearing does little to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Bongino said he will now be posting his video simulcast on his channel on Rumble. He has more than two million subscribers to his account. Last year, he agreed to an equity stake in the company.
