Steve Bannon says he ‘wants Fauci and FBI boss beheaded in disgusting attack

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon on his War Room Pandemic podcast Thursday said that President Donald Trump should start his second term by beheading FBI Director Christopher Wray and Dr Anthony Fauci.

A video of Steve Bannon’s outrageous comments which assume Trump is the victor of the election was later taken down by YouTube and Twitter suspended his @WarRoomPandemic account.

Steve Bannon started off by saying that Trump’s second term kicks off with firing Wray, firing Fauci.

Now I actually want to go a step farther but a president is a kind-hearted man and a good man. I want to go back to the old times of Tudor England, the former Trump aide said.

I’d put the heads on pikes, right, I would put them on the two corners of the White House as a warning to federal bureaucrats you either get with the program or you’re gone. Time to stop playing games.

Steve Bannon continued that it was time to blow it all up and replace Wray with Trump ally Ric Grenell as the interim head of the FBI.

Bannon’s co-host Jack Maxey went along with the narrative, saying that the prior day was the anniversary of the hanging of two Tories, or Quaker businessmen, who had cohabitated with the British while occupying Philadelphia during the American Revolution.

These people were hung, this is what we used to do to traitors, Maxey said.

Bannon then said that the American Revolution was won in that manner and that is something no one wants to talk about.

The revolution wasn’t some sort of garden party, right. No, it was a civil war, it was a civil war, Steve Bannon said.

A Media Matters for America researcher pointed out that YouTube prohibits inciting others to commit violent acts against individuals.

By Thursday evening, YouTube had taken down Bannon’s video, stating, We’ve removed this video for violating the policy against inciting violence. Continue to be vigilant as we enforce our policies in the post-election period.

Around the same time, Twitter suspended @WarRoomPandemic.

Account suspended. Twitter suspends accounts that violate the Twitter Rules, the page stated, referring to its policy on glorifying violence.

Donald Trump reportedly discussed firing Wray after Election Day over frustration that the FBI director did not indicate that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter are under investigation.

The president has also clashed with Dr. Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, over coronavirus policies and handling.
