    “My Pillow” Guy: We’re NOT pulling our ads from Laura Ingraham

    “My Pillow” Guy: We’re NOT pulling our ads from Laura Ingraham

    “We did not take down our advertising … Nor do we intend to”

    As reported yesterday, Fox News is standing with Laura Ingraham as she becomes the latest target of a decades-old campaign by Media Matters and others to deplatform conservative media figures and to destroy Fox News:

    “We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts. We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back hosting her program next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children.”

    In this latest iteration, Parkland student David Hogg plays the role against Ingraham that Sandra Fluke played in the Media Matters-organized campaign targeting Rush Limbaugh advertisers. As I wrote in my prior post, If Fox News cancels Laura Ingraham, it might as well close the network:

    It’s not about Laura Ingraham or David Hogg — it’s about an unhinged and emboldened totalitarian movement that seeks to deplatform conservatives. Their primary target for a decade has been Fox News, which is the one non-liberal network in a sea of liberal major media.

    Sacrificing Laura Ingraham won’t satiate the beast. If Fox News cancels Laura Ingraham over this faux outrage about her tweet, then Fox News might as well close the network.

    Over one dozen advertisers have announced they will not advertise on Ingraham’s show. I don’t know if this list is complete. but CBS News reports that these companies have joined the Ingraham Boycott:

    Bayer
    Miracle-Ear
    Liberty Mutual Insurance
    Ruby Tuesday
    Atlantis, Paradise Island
    Jenny Craig
    Nutrish
    Hulu
    TripAdvisor
    Wayfair
    Stitch Fix
    Expedia
    Nestlé
    Johnson & Johnson
    Office Depot

    There is one company, however, that just announced it is NOT pulling ads from Ingraham and has no intention of doing so in the future, the seemingly ubiquitous advertiser My Pillow:

    On Twitter both the founder Mike Lindell and the company tweeted out that they would not stop advertising on Ingraham’s show or on Fox News:

    “We did not take down our advertising … Nor do we intend to”

    https://twitter.com/realMikeLindell/status/980860555618525184

    https://twitter.com/MyPillowUSA/status/980860390476152832

    I’m sure there will be social media pushback, particularly since #TheResistance already hates Lindell because he’s a Trump supporter.

    But I’m also seeing a lot of people tweet that they will purchase My Pillow because of the refusal to capitulate to the Ingraham boycott.

    I’m going to order.

    My general rule is to never buy this type of advertised on TV product, But now I might make an exception. I certainly developed more respect for this guy.

    It’s ironic that the guy selling pillows is the one who has the spine to stand up to the deplatform movement. I hope his business does well.

    I’m doing my part by sending a contribution to the NRA Political Victory Fund. It’s disgusting how the left has made opposition to one of our fundamental civil liberties into a virtue-signaling movement. We need the NRA and other pro-2nd-amendment groups to help us keep our freedoms. The progressives are using everything from blackmail to boycotts to voter initiatives, all financed by billionaires, to attack our rights. We must stand together and become more vocal.

    The thing is I would approve of MyPillow’s decision not to remove their adds if it were Rachel Maddow. I despise this sort of extortion. The good news is it generally backfires. I had never been in a Chik-Fil-A until gay activists declared a boycott. Then I’m like, “I’m eating at Chik-Fil-A.”

    No kidding. Eff off, people.
