Eddie Griffin Openly Calls for Assassination of President Trump


The nation collectively rolled its eyes when washed-up has-been Madonna said that she has given considerable thought to blowing up the White House at the Women’s March, but it looks like she is not the only left-winger itching for violence. Radio show host Ben Ferguson recorded comedian Eddie Griffin referencing the Kennedy assassination and expressing hope that someone would do the same to President Trump and posted the video on Facebook for others to see. However, it seems that the site took it upon itself to remove the video in question:

Ben Ferguson, a radio show host who attended the show at the American Airlines Center, told The Federalist that Griffin made references to late President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, saying: “Ya’ll took out one president, you need to take out another.”

“Ya’ll need to put Trump into a convertible and take him out, or better yet, the driver should take him out,” he continued.

Ferguson streamed portions of the show via Facebook Live, but the social network removed the video containing Griffin’s remarks within 24 hours. When Ferguson attempted to access his Facebook account on his phone the next morning, he had been signed out. When he logged back into his account on his desktop, there was a notice from Facebook that the video violated their community standards.

Ferguson believes Facebook’s decision to remove the video, which had at least 100,000 views, is censorship.
