My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell releases a 3-hour long movie laying out “evidence” of fraud in the 2020 US presidential election.
Business Insider reports:
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell appeared on the Christian YouTube channel The Revival Channel to announce that he’s releasing a three-hour film Friday in support of his claims of issues in the 2020 election.
“Absolute Proof” was made, he said, over a five-day period “holed up with people guarding me.”
Lindell, a staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump, said the documentary proved “100%, the theft by China and these different international locations, this cyberattack on our nation right here, that took, that flipped votes.”
Lindell said his film would prove there was “a communist coup.”
“We prayed over every word that was in this piece,” he told The Revival Channel’s host. “The last four days, 12 people, three hours of sleep a night, A lot of stuff was done in one take because the Holy Spirit was just speaking it out.”
Lindell is among several Trump surrogates and supporters who were threatened with litigation by Dominion Voting Systems after repeatedly making baseless claims about election fraud involving its machines.
Lindell appeared on the conservative cable channel Newsmax early this week, ostensibly to talk about “cancel culture” but instead reviving his claims of election interference. The anchor Bob Sellers grew visibly irritated when Lindell instead began rattling off his Dominion Voting Systems election-fraud claims and cut in to remind viewers that Lindell’s claims were unsubstantiated. Sellers then appeared to walk off set in frustration.
Lindell describes the film as “the most important documentary ever,” saying: “I think God has been waiting to make this movie… That miracle is coming, and coming, and I’m telling you, Friday is the beginning. “
“Everyone needs to share it with everyone you know, because anyone that sees it, even if it’s nine Supreme Court justices, everyone will say ‘Wow, this is an attack on our country,'” Lindell explained.
“Once you guys see what I’ve seen you’re gonna be so excited,” he said.
Lindell claimed the movie would run on cable TV on Friday, and be available online. He said OAN may “run it in a loop” on their cable channel, adding: “It’s gonna be everywhere.”
The Epoch Times reports:
The two video-hosting platforms took down copies of the video, called “Absolute Proof,” and Facebook placed labels on posts made by Lindell, a staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump.
“Per our presidential election integrity policy, we remove content uploaded after the safe-harbor deadline” that includes claims that “fraud, errors or glitches changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. presidential election,” YouTube spokesperson Alex Joseph told The Washington Times and other news outlets on Feb. 6. “We removed this video and its reuploads in accordance with this policy.”
In early December, the Google-owned platform announced that it would remove content about election fraud after the Dec. 8, 2020, “safe harbor” deadline regarding states’ Electoral College votes.
Vimeo also told the paper that Lindell’s video was removed “for violating Vimeo’s policies on posting content that claims that the 2020 presidential election was fraudulent or stolen or otherwise illegitimate.”
Lindell’s personal website currently showcases the video, which is being hosted by StreamHoster.
“Watch this video and stay focused,” Lindell told the Washington Times in an email. Lindell didn’t immediately respond to a request by The Epoch Times for comment.
He also paid for hours-long advertising spots on cable channel One America News Network (OAN), according to the company. The network featured a disclaimer before airing Lindell’s film.
“Mr. Lindell is the sole author and executive producer of this program and is solely and exclusively responsible for its content,” the narrator says. “This program is not the product of OAN’s reporting.”
The disclaimer adds, “Further, the statements and claims expressed in this program are presented at this time as opinions only and are not intended to be taken or interpreted by the viewer as established facts.”
Previously, Twitter suspended the MyPillow account about a week after suspending Lindell’s account. Twitter said that it suspended his company account for alleged violations of the company’s ban-evasion policy.
“I can’t believe they’re doing this to my company,” Lindell said in an interview with USA Today last week. “They’re out to destroy me.”
“Thank you to everyone who has supported MyPillow during this time. … Jack Dorsey is trying to cancel me (Mike Lindell) out!” he previously wrote. “We are extremely busy and hiring as fast as we can to handle all the shipping! Jack will be found out and should be put in prison when all is revealed!”
Kohl’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, and J.C. Penney have confirmed that they’ll discontinue selling MyPillow products; Lindell suggested the retailers are engaging in a politically motivated cancel campaign.
