Skip to comments.Mike Lindell’s Upcoming Free-speech Social-media Site Is Unveiled

Mike Lindell, CEO of the company MyPillow, made headlines after being canceled on social media for supporting Donald Trump. His popular Made in America products were dropped by numerous retailers, including Walmart, Kohl’s, and Amazon. A change.org petition was even created to pressure the country’s biggest retail chains to stop selling MyPillow items.
Media bias and social-media Internet mobs have worked to tarnish Lindell’s reputation and his livelihood. The left-leaning platform, Twitter, has been known to censor speech and was the center of much of Lindell’s struggles.
Instead of working to get back onto platforms that have supported political bias in the media, he has decided to launch his own social-media outlet. The site is called FRANK. At frankspeech.com, the details of this upcoming social-media platform are already listed.
It clearly states, “Frank, the voice of free speech, will be the platform for Americans who want to defend life, liberty, and all the freedoms that have marked America as the longest running Constitutional Republic in the history of the world. On this platform you will find a home where you can post videos, livestream television, distribute news and information, and find community and fellowship with likeminded Americans. Frank will be a home for major influencers, to micro influencers, to average Americans wanting to share in the constitutional right of freedom of speech and freedom of expression. We hope you will join our community and let freedom ring.”
As with the websites Minds, Parler, and Gab, it already has a lot of people talking. Mike Lindell spoke about the site on the Eric Metaxas Radio Show this week.
His approach is straightforward. The need for more free speech outlets continues to grow as more and more people reject cancel culture and personal attacks that have long-lasting consequences for minor “offenses.” As Lindell put it, “All the crooked platforms, from Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, Google, Wikipedia, LinkedIn: they’re all together and they’re all against free speech. Okay. What they’ve done is, all the influencers out there, anyone that has a voice, if you say the wrong thing ─ Bam! ─ you lose your livelihood.”
Also this week, an aid to former President Donald Trump, discussed Trump’s own plans to create a new social-media platform, stating, “It’s going to completely redefine the game.”
Social-media and Internet communications are always changing. Society has moved far from the days of Myspace, and with an ever-changing political climate, it’s no wonder so many people are looking for alternatives to the current options.
^ HOORAY Mike. thanks, bitt.
BTW, I still can’t recover my password in Parler.
The problem is these big social media platforms lose BILLIONS before they show a profit, if at all.
That entry cost is ridiculously high, and effectively prevents competition.
You can bet liberals will sign up en mass and flood the site with racist, anti Semitic crap, then complain. About their free speech being suppressed.
I wish Mike well. The left are all about destroying everything good and decent and moral In this country. It’s gonna be a heck of a battle for him, but he’s definitely ately a fierce fighter
What does he know about this business?
“It’s gonna be a heck of a battle for him...”
It’s obvious that Lindell is working God’s plans for him.
I have heard others agree with you, saying that the operating costs in social media are indeed very high.
I am not tech or media savvy, nor am I all that interested in the process, but I still wonder WHY? Why, in the day and age where we can mass produce so many things at very low cost (before mark up) would the costs of creating and maintaining a media forum be stratospheric?
I’m thinking someone must have a MONOPOLY on certain services everybody needs to get started. Who is it?
Is it a matter of fees, licenses and permits?
The image of that elderly bearded black guy saying
“The Rent Is Too Damn High!!” comes to mind.
**I don’t expect you. FIDO to answer everything. It’s just been on my mind, and I have no way to get a CONCISE answer that doesn’t become overwhelmingly technical.
He doesn't have t0 know much, it's the people who work with him.....
The owner of one of the major dating apps was a Christian man. He got pressured by the gay lobby to allow gay dating, and he caved. I think it was match dot com, but can’t remember now.
Not saying Mike will cave, just that there is a tremendous amount of pressure by the demon driven left to destroy everything moral and decent I. This country. Mike is gonna have a very tough go of it. He needs our prayers. He should l d have a section on his site that is set up for prayer warriors to pray for him and the site.
It was either Spurgeon or moody who said the secret to their success was that who.e services were were going on, they had parishioners who’s calling was to pray downstairs in a room for the pastor.
Which people are these? I never heard about them.
Grade A executives hire Grade A people.
Grade B executives hire Grade C people.
—can’t remember who said this
I think you’re referring to Eharmony.
If Lindell doesn’t own the servers and the credit card processing site, the extremists will shut him down as they did to Parler.
“In 2005, the company was sued for discrimination of same-sex couples. To settle a lawsuit, eHarmony in 2009 launched Compatible Partners, a site for gay and lesbian singles. When it did so, Warren says 350,000 of its members fled eHarmony out of principle.Feb 12, 2016”
I wasn’t aware of the fact that they solved it this way.
A couple I know met on eHarmony and now are married with three kids and happy. It was an unusual match, and they found each other.
Yes I think that’s the one
I don't know......if you do, drop us a line.
Never met the CEO of a manufacturing company that knew how to fix the hydraulics on a stamping press or rewire a control box.........That’s why they have people who do that for them.
