“MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell told CNBC he is ready to go broke pushing the false claim that the election was stolen from Donald Trump while proclaiming that the election system needs extensive changes.
Lindell said he has spent $25 million of his own money since Election Day to fuel his campaign. And he plans to keep spending to continue his crusade going into the 2022 midterm elections.
Mike Lindell is an evangelical, and as such his primary focus should be to evangelize, i.e., spread the Good News that Jesus saves. You would expect him to use his national platform, his immense wealth and his time preaching the Gospel.
Instead, the Pillow huckster is prepared to go broke promulgating the Big Lie that his messiah, Donald Trump, won the election.
The legitimate cable news networks and the broadcast evening news programs are loathe to give him any air time to spread his false conspiracy theories, but he is willing to appear on any podcast, YouTube channel, and 3rd rate cable news network to spread the Gospel of his Orange Messiah.
Lindell spreads a litany of false conspiracy theories, but his main obsession is the Big Lie. It’s manifest that Joe Biden won in a popular vote and electoral college landside over Donald Trump. Only cultists who live in an alternate universe and immerse themselves in ultra-right web sites, TV news networks and podcasts believe in the Big Lie.
If Lindell and his fellow evangelicals are dead wrong when it comes to the Big Lie, then it’s only fair and prudent to question the validity of their core evangelical beliefs.
If they are wrong about the Big Lie, are they wrong about the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ? His resurrection? The reliability of the Bible? Lindell and his ilk have done more to undermine the evangelical movement than any atheist or agnostic.
