Election deniers from across the country are gathering in Missouri this weekend to attend MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell’s election fraud conspiracy conference. Lindell says his Moment of Truth conference will offer new evidence that the 2020 election was stolen, and also premiere a new documentary, “Selection Code,” which tells indicted Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters’ version of her actions during that election, for which she now faces multiple felony charges.
In his play The Tempest, William Shakespeare wrote, “Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.” Sometime in the 19th Century, the quote morphed into the proverb, “Politics makes strange bedfellows.”It strikes me a deeply apropos in some cases when it comes to today’s GOP and how politically conservative Jews seem okay with their proximity to the far-right. This isn’t to say the left is free from antisemitism — far from it. It’s the paradox of being a Jew in the United States today; we see antisemitism across the political spectrum.
In a move rarely advised by campaign consultants, a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate may have confessed to a serious crime.
UPDATE: It appears the Colorado Freedom Convoy organizers are hoping for a more tasteful presence at tomorrow’s event. An administrator of the group’s Telegram channel posted this announcement earlier today:
“This is not about Republican and Democrat,” Mesa County, Colorado, Clerk Tina Peters told the audience of election conspiracists. “They try to make it so it seems they’re dividing one party against the other, but it’s not that at all. It’s the globalists who have their thumb on the scales. … So it’s important for us to bring everybody into the fold to let them know what’s going on.”
“Patrick, please quit this! I want you to quit it, I want you to win! People showed up on January 6th because they were lied to! Donald Trump lied to them. The people around Donald Trump told lies.”
Mike Lindell isn’t just paying Colorado election fraud conspiracists to push the Big Lie locally, he’s also flying them around the country on his private jet.
MyPillow’s Lindell funds new nationwide ‘election integrity’ group with Colorado ties, activist tells Steve Bannon
Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow and a leading election-conspiracy ally of former President Donald Trump, has given financial support to a new nationwide organization devoted to “election integrity,” according to Shawn Smith, a prominent Colorado Springs-based activist and apparent leader of the organization.
It’s over a year since the 2020 election, but teams of election fraud conspiracists are still going door-to-door in counties all over Colorado, searching for so-called “phantom votes” that they remain convinced — without evidence— actually exist.
