In the Tuesday installment of Tucker Carlson tonight on Fox News, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell alleged that Dominion Voting Systems “hired hit groups and bots and trolls” to help it get “canceled” by getting it out of circulation Twitter and get retail stores to stop selling their product.
Last week, Dominion Voting Systems threatened to sue Lindell of its repeated, public, and unfounded allegations that their machines have fraudulently flipped voices of the former president Donald Trump to the incumbent President Joe Biden in the presidential election in November 2020.
“A week ago Dominion went … on TV and said they were chasing Mike Lindell,” the CEO of MyPillow told Carlson. “Well, they did. They hired hit groups and bots and trolls, went after all of my salespeople, all of these boxing shops, to wipe me out.”
On Monday, the microblogging social media platform Twitter has permanently blocked Lindell’s account for repeated breaches of the Misinformation Policy.
Lindell’s support for both Trump and Trump’s unfounded claims about widespread electoral fraud is well documented.
On December 19th, Lindell posted a tweet calling on Trump to impose martial law Biden won the election on seven battlefield states. Lindell also urged Trump to confiscate the voting machines and ballot boxes in these states. Lindell deleted the tweet about an hour later.
On January 6, Lindell attended Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally, which took place before Trump’s supporters later staged a riot at the US Capitol that left five police officers dead and dozen injured.
That’s what Lindell said at the rally Fox News helped the Democrats steal the election because the network early called the state of Arizona in favor of Biden.
“I’m serious, you had to be there!” said Lindell. “They should all go to jail if they are found out.”
On January 15th, the activist group Sleeping Giants posted a tweet questions Walmart, Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond and Lowe’s for continuing to sell MyPillow products after Lindell “called for a rebellion”.
The group’s tweet included a video by Lindell, reportedly filmed after the Capitol Rebellion, in which he said, “This is the only time in history we have to defeat these guys to quell evil.” and defeat evil. This is a struggle for with everything we grew up with, for everything we live for, for everything this country stands for. The whole world is watching and 100 percent Donald Trump will be your president for the next four years. “
On January 20, Lindell announced that a number of leading US retailers stopped selling MyPillow products, and he suggested the reason was because of his support for Trump. However, two of the retailers he mentions, Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s, said poor sales caused product offerings to be discontinued and not Lindell’s politics.
News week contacted Lindell for comment.
