The My Pillow guy, Mike Lindell, ringingly declared “I’m never letting the fraud go,” referencing his disingenuous beliefs of a stolen 2020 election, and Twitter says fine. Just don’t do it on our platform. Lindell, with a following of half a million, was permanently banned from Twitter Tuesday morning. Reuters via Raw Story:
Lindell repeatedly violated the company’s civic integrity policy, due to which he was suspended, a Twitter spokesperson said in an emailed statement. Twitter had permanently suspended Trump from its platform earlier this month. […]
A self-described former cocaine addict and alcoholic who says he found sobriety through Christianity, Lindell helped sponsor a two-week March for Trump bus tour that ended in Washington on Dec. 14 and spoke at five stops.
He told Reuters a fortnight ago that he did not help finance subsequent trips to promote the Jan. 6 rally that devolved into riots as supporters of Trump stormed through the U.S. Capitol.
But the Capitol riots that left five people dead, did not change his views on contesting the election.
“I’m never letting the fraud go,” Lindell told Reuters then.
Lindell is a recovered addict, meaning that he is all too familiar with the concept of “self will run riot” which recovering substance abusers use to describe their folly when lost in their disease. It seems like Lindell dumped cocaine and then later on got addicted to Trumpism. He doesn’t seem to know that Everything Trump Touches Dies. Apparently he has to find out the hard way.
