You are judged by the company you keep is a truism for the ages. And it is not surprising that Mike Lindell is backing the total loser you’re about to revisit here. The only thing that gives pause is that Lindell wants to add to his bad publicity issues at a time when he’s getting horrible press, but maybe he’s so far gone he doesn’t know his publicity is all bad.
Or, maybe he thinks like Bela Lugosi did, that there is no such thing as bad publicity.
To refresh your memory, this is the creep that Lindell now is making money selling pillows with.
If there was any doubt about the far-right's agenda, white nationalist Vincent James makes it explicitly clear: "We are the Christian Taliban and we will not stop until The Handmaid's Tale is a reality, and even worse than that." pic.twitter.com/2w3rNdX7V4

If you think that’s bad. Here is his newest. He thinks that slavery was like a camping trip.
But that doesn’t stop Lindell from going into business with him. No, Sir, not Mikey.

In a livestream on his website Daily Veracity last week, first reported on by Right Wing Watch, Foxx announced that Lindell had bestowed upon him a special code offering viewers a major discount on Lindell’s infamous pillows. (The code knocks $40 off Lindell’s pillows, typically priced at $69.98 each, as well as offering generous discounts on other items.) Lindell is advertising the deal with Foxx on the MyPillow website, calling it “the biggest bed sheet sale in MyPillow history.”
“Big shoutout to Mike Lindell,” Foxx said in his livestream. “Because he has given us an opportunity to sell some pillows on, which is awesome. We get like 50 percent of whatever you get from with the [code] ‘VinceJames.”
Foxx said he recently spoke on the phone with Lindell, who proposed the partnership. “He’s like, ‘Vince, we need you to sell some MyPillows for us’,” Foxx claimed. “And I’m like, ‘Say no more, fam. Give me a code’.”
(Lindell may now be more in need of support than ever, after he says the FBI confiscated his phone while he was at a Hardee’s drive-thru in Minnesota on Tuesday night, fueling speculation that the government’s investigation into the plot to steal the 2020 election may now be focusing on one of its biggest financiers.) […]
Foxx boosts his visibility by putting out extreme inflammatory statements along the lines of white Christian nationalism, evidenced by a series of clips compiled by Right Wing Watch. He’s said that he hopes the Supreme Court is on track to ban homosexuality, and in five years, “we’ll be throwing them [gay people] off of roofs.” He also has floated his desire to establish task forces for “kidnapping the children away from gay people.”
Lindell’s fortunes were already on the downslope and getting this latest baggage is only going to drag him down faster.
Since you’re here, here’s the latest in comic relief from Lindell, via Trump’s Saturday night Nazi/QAnon Cult gathering.
Lindell: On Tuesday, we’re suing the US government and the FBI. We’re suing them for violating our 1st amendment rights, our 4th amendment rights, our 5th amendment rights, and our 6th amendment rights… pic.twitter.com/HownKQqQ8Q

And maybe his 13th and his 19th Amendment rights have been violated, too. Have you stopped to consider that?
And Mikey wants you to know he’s not afraid of the Big Bad Feds. He’s got a plan.
Good thing they had a bunch of pillows strapped to their cars.

Lindell probably learned how to ram cars and take off into the night from his crack consuming days — which he assures us are far behind him.
It’s hard to predict what will befall Lindell in the days ahead, but one thing I can guarantee: it’s only going to get stranger. Stay tuned.
