U.S. veteran and popular conservative commentator Joe Biggs was mysteriously and suddenly banned from Twitter after daring to question the legitimacy of the domestic terror outfit known as Antifa.
Biggs, who had over 214,000 followers when twitter deleted his account, had called out Antifa only a short time before being sent down the Twitter memory hole.
The banning occurred only hours after his account was strangely and without explanation de-verified. Twitter had given Biggs its once vaunted blue checkmark so that Twitter users could be certain that the account was an official account of a public figure. But Biggs told fans that the checkmark disappeared just hours before the rest of his account did.
I was just DMing @rambobiggs about his de-verification following his reporting on Portland Antifa violence. POOF. Now he's gone. Suspended.
Just like @lucet_veritas , who was suspended w/o warning or explanation after exposing Portland Antifa violence.

In an exclusive interview with Godfather Politics, Biggs told this reporter of what led up to the sudden and unfair banning.
“It’s amazing in this day and age, that if you confront Antifa — which is essentially a domestic terror organization — that social media platforms will ban you,” Biggs told us.
After that attack that happened in Portland two weeks ago, I went to Twitter to express my anger and to spread awareness as to what Antifa is. And the closest I ever got to expressing anything dangerous, was to say that conservative need to arm themselves for self-protection. But I said not to just go out and buy a gun, there’s more to it than that. You need to take classes, you need to understand, respect, and fear that weapon and know the law.
But it’s sad that this is one of the things that we have to do now because it’s getting that bad. There literally is a group of people going around beating people up because they have different political points of view. And, at some point in time, we have to stand up for ourselves.
Biggs also told us that has was actually hunted down by Antifa terrorists when he appeared in Washington D.C. this weekend.
“Today we were attacked,” Biggs said of an incident after a free speech rally in Washington D.C. “We had left the event. We were about three miles from the rally, and they followed us in our cab, and when it came to a stop, they started hitting the car with metal bars. This stuff has to stop, and we have to stand up to it,” He said.
“They had a team of guys in masks riding bicycles that chased after out cab for three miles,” Biggs said in shock. “I was riding with the leader of the Proud Boys, and when we got out of the cab, the Antifa guys almost took him out by hitting him in the head with a metal baton.”
Biggs went on to excoriate these Antifa terrorists for hiding behind masks, wearing helmets, and carrying deadly weapons.
“People who are covering their faces and doing things under that cover have nothing good to offer,” Biggs said. “They wear the masks because they know what they’re doing is wrong. And if they get exposed, they know they are more than likely going to end up in jail.”
In contrast, Biggs added, conservatives offer a “message of equality and bringing people together, smaller government, entrepreneurship, and a good, American message, that people can get behind, but Antifa is scared of that message.”
Biggs is a two-time Purple-Heart-winner and retired from the Army as a Sergeant after two tours of duty, one in Iraq and another in Afghanistan. He was originally a member of the Infowars team.
