Unhinged MyPillow CEO Reportedly Called For A Protest Outside Fox News, But The Turnout Seemed Less Than Impressive

Where'd everybody go?

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, an election conspiracy theorist, came up with a plan to call for a protest outside of Fox News New York City headquarters. “We are going to do something out in front of Fox News, I think we should have—you know, if people want to go down there, maybe we should give out Frank Speech signs,” Lindell stated last week, according to The Daily Beast. “They [Fox News] are a big part of our country being taken from us,” he continued before calling the network “controlled opposition,” which he said is the “worst” he has “ever seen in history.”

The pillow salesman spoke about that on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast, and a clip of the crowd outside of Fox News headquarters was displayed showing about a dozen people holding signs and chanting. Lindell was upset that the network was focused on Hunter Biden’s laptop and President Biden going to “some rich guy’s house” in Nantucket for Thanksgiving. “Who cares? I don’t,” Lindell said.  The MyPillow guy wants Fox News to report on the baseless, fact-free claim of widespread voter fraud that didn’t take place in the 2020 presidential election. Lindell claims the network is about “election deflection.”

Look at ’em all. There must bet tens of ’em!:

Lindell used Fox News to place ads to grow his pillow empire, but now things have gone south after the network called Joe Biden’s victory in November. Dominion Voting Systems sued Fox Corporation and Fox Broadcasting for defamation earlier this month, so it’s doubtful that they would give air time to the MyPillow guy to push election conspiracy theories. Dominion is suing Lindell, too, but he hasn’t stopped propagating the big lie.
