As pillow magnate-cum-election conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell finds once-supportive media now not considering his views after a wave of defamation lawsuits, one outlet stays prepared and prepared to commonly broadcast his lies: Steve Bannon’s “Struggle Room” present, which Lindell additionally occurs to underwrite. (emphasis mine)
It seems a typical episode of “Struggle Room” sees Bannon going from spewing crimson meat to touting Lindell’s merchandise. He even urges his viewers to go to MyPillow’s web site and use a particular promo code.
In its $1.3 billion lawsuit in opposition to Lindell, Dominion Voting Programs contends that the MyPillow Man is prepared to sow doubt in regards to the election and put its workers in peril solely to promote pillows. That’s unhealthy sufficient, however Date missed one thing that’s equally egregious. Apparently Lindell has no qualms about opening his checkbook to a man who made terroristic dying threats on air.
Keep in mind? Again in November, Bannon referred to as for Anthony Fauci and Christopher Wray to be beheaded for daring to face as much as Trump. For good measure, he wished to place Fauci and Wray’s heads on pikes within the method of Tudor England. Earlier than the day was out, Twitter had nuked the present’s account, and Fb and YouTube had deleted the video.
And but, regardless of this, Bannon stored his morning time slot on fringe right-wing community Actual America’s Voice, which is a company sibling to cable and satellite tv for pc climate community WeatherNation. And but, regardless of this, Lindell remains to be greater than prepared to bankroll him.
Anybody prepared to provide Bannon a penny after his sordid, thuggish, racist, and outright legal previous at Breitbart, on the White Home, and again at Breitbart must be disreputable, determined, or some mixture thereof. However any defensible purpose to put in writing Bannon a test ought to have gone out the window on Nov. 5.
By persevering with to prop up Bannon, Lindell is successfully telling the world that he has no drawback with terroristic language. Certainly, anybody pondering of doing enterprise with Lindell’s deliberate startup social media platform, Frank, should rethink. Apparently Lindell’s requirements for acceptable content material are as low or decrease than even these of Parler and Gab.
Lindell payments himself as a Christian businessman. Effectively, to the thoughts of this left-leaning Christian, the truth that Lindell is prepared to help Bannon proves his fruit is as rancid as all hell. I repeat: What businessman with an iota of decency would give a penny to a man who made dying threats on the air?
Actual America’s Voice has to reply for persevering with to provide a platform to Bannon. Now it seems like MyPillow has to face a reckoning as properly. If there was any doubt that MyPillow has forfeited its proper to exist, the truth that Lindell is bankrolling Bannon ought to erase it. After this, the one locations Lindell’s pillows belong are within the trash can or the hearth.
