Now they’ve done it. The Marxist Biden Deep State Justice Department thugs have done the unthinkable. They have assaulted the servile liberties of the gratingest American businessman and Internet loudmouth since – well, since real estate barren, casino bankrupter, charity skimmer, and twice-impeached former reality TV game show host, Donald Trump. That’s right, the MyPillow guy, Mike Lindell, joins the ranks of those persecuted by President Biden’s FBI stormtroopers.

In a plaintive whimpering video, Lindell revealed that the FBI had surrounded him at a Hardee’s eatery and forced him to surrender his cell phone. As the Daily Beast reported: “The search warrant requests data from Lindell’s phone, including any information it contains about damage to Dominion voting machines.” Shortly thereafter, Lindell managed to find some other device so that he could post a video announcing the seizure, despite the FBI requesting that he keep quiet about it.

Not surprisingly, this atrocity was quickly picked up by Fox News, where their Senior Fascismo Conspiracy Monger, Tucker Carlson was predictably perturbed. Upon learning of the phone abduction, Carlson unleashed a typically angst-ridden response…
“This is a Fox New Alert! A shocking one. We told you last night that the Biden administration has politicized law enforcement to the point where it feels Soviet and we were not overstating it. The FBI has just raided the guy who sells pillows on this channel. Not because the pillows are bad, but because of who he voted for.”

No, Carlson isn’t overstating it at all. He’s calmly and rationally issuing a “shocking” “Fox News Alert” to announce that the “Soviet” FBI “raided” his top advertiser for having voted for Trump.
Setting aside that Fox News uses the “Alert’ label for everything from earthquakes to surfing dogs, Carlson is falsely implying that the FBI raided Lindell’s home, which they did not. They simply approached him at a fast food restaurant and politely (according to Lindell) asked for his phone. They presented him with the search warrant, that was authorized by a judge, and advised him they were seeking information related to criminal activity.
Carlson, however, can’t be bothered with facts. He’s fixated on the heinousness of law enforcement doing their job. But Carlson wasn’t alone. His primetime colleague, Laura Ingraham, was also compelled to attack the agents for their audacious attention to those pesky legalities. She had the following exchange with her similarly outraged guest, ultra-rightist judicial pundit, Mike Davis…
Ingraham: It’s almost as if they’re seizing phones of anyone who might have communicated with the President, or anyone who’s close with the president. Am I out on a limb here or what?
Davis: This is scary stuff, Laura. We started out where they were going after Trump for non-crimes of keeping his presidential records at Mar-a-Lago. Now they’re going after his supporters. They’re going after his supporters for apparently the non-crime of questioning an election. You have to have a predicate crime in order to have Grand Jury subpoenas and warrants. What’s the crime they’re investigating? Questioning the election? We’re not a Marxist hellhole yet. I’m not understanding how the Biden Justice Department thinks that they can investigate these as crimes.

Yes, Laura. It’s fair to say that you are way out on a limb. For the record, the FBI isn’t “seizing phones of anyone who might have communicated with the [former] President.” They are seizing phones of anyone who might have been connected to a federal crime.
As for Davis, he is even farther out on that limb when he says that Trump hoarding – and lying about – highly sensitive national security materials at his Palm Beach hotel/home is a “non-crime.” And the FBI isn’t “going after” people who question the election. They’re going after coup plotters who tried to undermine democracy and overthrow the rightfully elected government. Davis pretends that he doesn’t know what the predicate for the subpoena was. But if he really doesn’t know, he’s both ignorant and dishonest.
The concerns of Carlson and Ingraham for Lindell can be traced to their dependence on him for advertising dollars. They have both lost most of their national advertisers and now rely on MyPillow as their biggest source of ad revenue. MyPillow accounts for at least 20% of the ads on Carlson’s show. In fact, MyPillow ads are running at an all time high on Fox News. And the second biggest advertiser is Fox News itself, promoting other Fox programs.
What makes this even more humorous is that Lindell had recently pulled all of his ads from Fox News in a fit because they wouldn’t run his ad promoting an election deniers conference that he held. Apparently he got over it.

Finally, Trump could not resist the impulse to weigh in this. He posted this comment on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social…
“Breaking News: Mike Lindell, “THE Pillow Guy,” was just raided by the FBI. We are now officially living in a Weaponized Police State, Rigged Elections, and all. Our Country is a laughing stock all over the World. The majesty of the United States is gone. Can’t let this happen. TAKE BACK AMERICA!”
If the United States is a “laughing stock all over the World,” it’s just the residue of Trump’s prior occupation of the White House and his continued whining about having so decisively lost reelection to Joe Biden. But the fact that Lindell and other Trump co-conspirators are being scrutinized by the FBI is rapidly restoring credibility to America’s laws and Constitution.
