Yesterday The Epoch Times reported that Kohl’s or Bed Bath & Beyond will no longer carry MyPillow products because CEO Mike Lindell, a strong supporter of President Trump, questioned the integrity of the 2020 presidential election.
The article reports:
CEO Mike Lindell said on Jan. 18 that his company recently was notified of the discontinuance.
“I just got off the phone with Bed Bath & Beyond. They’re dropping MyPillow. Just got off the phone not five minutes ago. Kohl’s, all these different places,” Lindell told Right Side Broadcasting Network.
…Lindell said the actions came after groups such as Sleeping Giant pushed companies to stop doing business with him.
“It’s not their fault that they’re scared because they don’t realize these are fake people that [are saying], ‘We’re going to boycott your store if you don’t drop MyPillow.’” People should go into the stores and say they support MyPillow, he said.
He also said his company is a good partner and has seen its direct sales increase 30 to 40 percent since Jan. 15.
“We’ve had great relationships with these companies. And they’ve had to drop us now because of what—because of attacks by some group that was hired to send bots and trolls on their social media accounts,” he told NTD.
Private companies have the right to do business with anyone they choose. However, there is a definite pattern to the cancel culture. Oddly enough it is a patter we have seen before.
As I previously note in the second article referenced above:
For anyone who thinks this is no big deal, I would direct you to an interview done on the Glenn Beck show of Jewish historian Edwin Black. The two men were having a discussion of the events that led to the Holocaust. Edwin Black stated that there were three steps involved in getting the Jewish people into the concentration camps–identifying them, excluding them, and confiscating their property (or denying them the ability to make a living).
We all know where that road ended. We should do everything we can to avoid taking it.
