During the final day of Mike Lindell’s three-day Cyber Symposium, the CEO of My Pillow and founder of Frank Speech, in a voice thick with emotion announced that he had been attacked outside of his hotel nearby. The mainstream media is covering this with a great deal of disrespect and dubiousness, with many ‘journalists’ reveling in the man’s pain.
Here is the straight story as Lindell described it.
“Last night when I got to the hotel, I was attacked,” Mr. Lindell said onstage at the event. “I’m OK. It hurts a little bit. I just want everyone to know all the evil that’s out there,” he added.
“This is where our country’s gone. You take away the free speech. So they go after me. And they’re going, ‘Well, we try and crush his company and take everything from him.’ And then they go after [me] physically.
“Now I’ve got to go around with a bodyguard for who knows how long,” the MyPillow CEO said. “And I don’t like bodyguards. I like to have American freedom to drive around, to do what I want, to not worry, to be able to take pictures with people.”
Details of the Attack On Lindell
Lindell spoke to Flashpoint Media and provided details of the attack, he told contributors Mario Murillo and Lance Wallnau,
“He put his arm around and stuck his finger, it was so much pressure, I just knew if I did anything something more was coming,” Lindell said, gesturing to his side. “He jammed it in where it was just piercing pain.”
Lindell was reportedly in so much pain he doubled over and the pain continued until he reached his hotel room. He observed that the men ran to him in a fashion that made him uneasy and he felt he was being set up, that if he had reacted in pain the situation would have worsened with potentially deadly implications before he was able to get away.
According to the Sioux Falls Argus Leader, The Sioux Falls Police Department “took a report at about 11 a.m. Thursday and an assault did occur at about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday in Sioux Falls at a hotel near Russell Street and West Avenue, in the area of the location of the symposium.” Police spokesman Sam Clemens said “due to “investigative reasons” and Marcy’s Law no further information would be released.” Reportedly no arrests have been made and police are investigating. Marsy’s Law is a South Dakota constitutional amendment that protects crime victims by preventing the release of their identities.
The Associated Press reports that Clemens “declined to release the report, saying police reports are confidential under state law and declined further comment, citing an ongoing investigation.”
