Life under the fascists of America

On September 1 at  approximately 7:17 p.m., Steve Bannon's home in Washington, D.C., and "War Room" headquarters was swatted. This is the second time in two months that Bannon, former chief strategist to former President Donald Trump, has been the victim of a swatting incident. 

Swatting is a cyber harassment technique in which a false report of criminal activity is sent to law enforcement with the goal of having an armed emergency response team dispatched to a victim's location. 

Within hours of President Joe Biden's speech castigating "MAGA Republicans" and identifying them as a "threat to this country," police were called to Bannon's residence in the 200 block of A Street NE. They had received a tip that there was an active threat of a shooter. Firefighters and paramedics also reported to the scene.
