MyPillow CEO ignores liberal demands, refuses to pull ads from Laura Ingraham

In a tweet issued Monday, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell announced that he will not cave to demands by foul-mouthed teen demagogue David Hogg and his allies at the George Soros-funded Media Matters and will not pull his advertisements from Laura Ingraham’s Fox News program.

“I did not take my advertising down from and , nor do I intend to,” he said.

Ingraham, as we and others reported, triggered the teen tyrant after she made reference to a news report about his rejection from four different colleges.

This prompted Hogg and Media Matters to start a campaign aimed at her advertisers.  Some, like Hulu and Rachael Ray’s Nutrish, dutifully obeyed and yanked their ads from Ingraham, sparking calls for boycotts.

Ingraham apologized, but Hogg rejected her apology, instead demanding that she repudiate Fox News and later suggesting that she be fired from the network.  Fox, however, said they would not bend to his will and will not fire her.

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

Reaction was pretty much what one might expect:

It’s easy to tell the responses from Hogg’s acolytes…

Kudos to Lindell for not caving into the demands of a petulant, profane attention-seeker and those who wish to silence anyone with whom they disagree.
