Popularly known as My Pillow guy, Michael James Lindell is a 60-year-old American businessman, conservative political activist, and conspiracy theorist. He is the founder and CEO of My Pillow Inc, a pillow, bedding, and slipper manufacturing company. He has also founded the Lindell Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides treatments and other services to drug addicts. Also standing to his credit is a self-published book about his addiction and his relationship with God.
Mr. Lindell has been one of the leading voices to propagate conspiracy theories that there was widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election. He has produced documentaries, hosted rallies, and has a devoted social media platform to further these claims.
What is Frank’s social media platform?
Frank Speech is a social media app launched by Mike Lindell, MyPillow, affectionately known as the MyPillow guy.
Launch of Frank social media platform
Lindell held a rally at the Corn Place in Mitchell Monday to officially launch Frank Speech. The name of the site comes from “being frank with someone.” The rally saw roughly 1000 guests lined up around Corn Valley hours before the commencement of the rally.
At the launch, Frank looked more like a broadcast location than a social media platform. According to Lindell, users will be able to create profiles and have their posts over time. He hopes it will run similarly to a combination of Twitter and YouTube.
Inspiration for Frank social media
Lindell said he came up with the idea for Frank after he was removed from several mainstream social media platforms.
Lindell’s comments about Frank Speech
Mike Lindell will launch a new free speech platform that he thinks will put YouTube and Twitter out of business. But it turns out it will limit what users can say – by stopping them from, among other things, taking the Lord’s name in vain.
“Everyone is going to be able to talk freely,” said Mike Lindell about the platform called Frank, which is set to roll out on 19 April, in an interview with the conservative host Graham Ledger on the Ledger Report podcast. “When you come over now, you are going to be able to speak out and have opinions.”
“You don’t get to use the four swear words: the c-word, the n-word, the f-word, or God’s name in vain,” Lindell explained in a video on the Frank landing page.
In an attempt to differentiate itself from other “anything goes” conservative-leaning social networking platforms, Lindell, a Christian, has laid out the type of speech his users will not be able to freely use, including profanity, sexual content, and profane language.
Why in the news?
Lindell, a creatively-minded political theorist, was banned from Twitter earlier this year. This was because of his persistent lies about how Trump won the 2020 election. He met with the former president in January, urging him to consider martial law to defend that claim. Mike recently said he’s hired private investigators to look into why Fox News won’t book him anymore. He has framed the social media venture as a mix between Twitter and YouTube.
“You’re going to have your own YouTube channel, only that’s your Twitter handle,” he said.
“Oh and, by the way, it will also put both companies out of business,” he said.
