From an interview earlier this evening, Mike Lindell tells Right Side Broadcasting that he was just told that @BedBathBeyond has dropped MyPillow. He also complains about @slpng_giants.
@BedBathBeyond@slpng_giants Lindell circles back, links business losses to "the deep state" and "communism" and to the lawsuit threat from "the machine people" Dominion. (after it cuts out, the host defends the honor of mypillow)
Lindell says he talks with Sidney Powell twice a day, and came to his (false) conclusion that the election was rigged after he did his own math.
Thread: MyPillow CEO and right-wing fixture Mike Lindell explained his White House visit with right-wing radio host Eric Metaxas (who tweeted hashtag martial law in support of Lindell).
The interview had deranged conspiracy theories, justifications of violence, and more.
The interview starts with Metaxas touting Lindell’s supposed “genuine evidence” of foreign election fraud. Lindell says it came out “ten days ago” on Twitter and starts explaining the conspiracy theory.
Lindell then clarifies that his source for this debunked lie is a conspiracy theory website. Lindell claims Trump won by 11 million votes (he did not).
top congressional republicans refuse to acknowledge the election results more than a month after the fact, and the story in mainstream outlets is just basically "welp trump is out of options ok that's all"
the trump-focus ends up creating the expectation that things will go back to some sort of "normal" when he's gone. but if you look at the forces shaping gop behavior (that is, right-wing media), it's clear that we're never going back. that's the story.
to the contrary, this dumb coup just sets the bar going forward. it's not just that right-wing media and their audience are for this sort of thing, it's that any gop politician who doesn't do at least this / support this is a stealth democrat (and to them, democrats are evil)
Chris Wallace, who ignored massive wildfires in the western United States on Fox News Sunday, and who did not ask a single climate crisis question in his 2016 debate, announces that he'll ignore the issue in this debate as well.
"Shea’s wife, Amanda, told the television station that 'they have been in contact with the White House to ensure the donations can be used on a border wall, but she did not say who at the White House she communicated with.'"
Jokes aside, James Murdoch resigning isn't anything like Succession. It just shows that Fox Corp and News Corp are Lachlan Murdoch's companies now, full stop -- and that Lachlan is the one responsible for enabling the lies and malfeasance and white nationalism.
Lachlan's the one who's consistently enabled Tucker Carlson, shielding him from all criticism (and consequences) whatsoever.
What's telling here is that a Murdoch family member would rather walk away than bear any responsibility for the rot in the empire. And that rot is deep.
