MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, a staunch ally of former President Donald Trump, says he hasn’t been back to his home in Minnesota for two months and no longer attends in-person events because he fears for his life.
Lindell, who has spent the last few months spreading the debunked conspiracy theory claiming that voting-machine company Dominion Voting Systems switched votes from Trump to President Joe Biden, has since been blocked from Twitter, sued by Dominion, and had his products pulled by dozens of retailers.
On “The Domenick Nati Show” on Monday, Lindell said that he was living in a different state because of safety concerns.
“I absolutely move around to undisclosed locations,” he said.
“I haven’t been back to Minnesota, and anybody out there that is looking for me, I haven’t been back there in two months,” he said. “I can’t go back there.”
He added that he wasn’t going to attend any scheduled events in-person and that he recently attended an event via Zoom instead because it was “too risky” to be there himself.
He didn’t want to put himself or other people “in jeopardy,” he said.
“If they’re capable of what they’re doing out there to destroy a company and destroy things to cancel people out, I guess I’m not going to go there, make myself vulnerable out there,” he said.
Lindell added that he plans to cancel “cancel culture,” and that he had “big teams” of investigators looking into who’s behind it.
He said his teams are also looking into Facebook and Twitter, after the platforms put disclaimers on his posts about election fraud, saying they contained false information, he said. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey would be “going to jail,” he added.
“Jack Dorsey is involved in a lot of evil,” he said. “They took my Twitter, they were running my Twitter, not just taking it down. … They were retweeting things making it look like Mike Lindell was OK with stuff.”
