The question of is this ‘America anymore?’ has surely been answered now.
We are no longer live in a free country where people can have differing opinions on the political sphere without facing massive backlash.
If you have a social media account, I am sure many of you have faced multiple violations from speaking about the injustices occurring in the nation.
Some have been banned for weeks on end and others, like myself, had complete accounts deleted from Facebook and Twitter.
If you have had that occur to you over the last 8-10 years, then you are in good company.
President Trump and Mike Lindell have both been de-platformed for their views on where the country is headed lately.
However, I don’t think any of us have had their banks cancel our accounts for our views, right?
Well, that may be the next way to silence the opposition since Mike Lindell’s bank just set that precedent by canceling his accounts.
News is breaking today that Mike Lindell is being forced to close all bank accounts at his long-standing bank, Minnesota Bank & Trust and Heartland Financial.

Minnesota bank heartlessly CANCELS Mike Lindell's Recovery Networkhttps://t.co/PGp1ezbvQv

From Trending Politics:
Best known as the CEO of MyPillow, Mike Lindell says one of the nation’s largest banks is moving to dump the nine businesses and charities he has founded in the wake of his success with MyPillow.
Among them are the social media sites FrankSpeech.com and Lindell TV, and the Lindell Recovery Network, which helps people overcome addictions, Lindell said in an interview Friday with Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast.”
Bannon played a recording of a telephone call between a top executive at Minnesota Bank & Trust and Lindell’s controller.
The executive asked in the call why the bank, a subsidiary of Heartland Financial, is associated with “someone who could be in the news.”
“Not that the FBI is even sniffing and looking, but what if somebody came and said, ‘Do you know what? We are going to subpoena all of his account records, and this and that. And then all of a sudden we make the news,” the executive said.
“So it’s more of a reputation risk,” he said.

Here’s more from Trending Politics:
Lindell, after his controller informed him of the bank’s intentions, tried to call CEO Stephen Bishop but was put on hold for an hour. He called back and was put on hold for another 45 minutes.
“They’re telling us you need to leave our bank,” Lindell told Bannon. “They said they want FrankSpeech gone … in a week, and they want all the rest gone in 30 days.
“I said, I am not … leaving, so you’re going to have to throw me out of your bank.”
Lindell noted that such canceling hasn’t worked out well for Bed, Bath, and Beyond, having closed 37 stores since canceling his products.
Well, America the time to act is now.
Here is the full interview on Steve Bannon’s War Room here on Rumble:
Here’s the current tally and now we can add this Bank to the list:
All of these have dropped MYPILLOW products.
Pls let them know WHY you won't shop there anymore.

And from Patriot Fetch:
To be clear, that means that a) a hard-working entrepreneur was denied access to financial services because of his political views and b) that an American bank is so fearful of the FBI that it’s willing to toss a major customer, one it knows can call upon his allies in the media and influencer space for help and visibility, out into the cold. Both of those facts point to a dark future.
In any case, Lindell says that immediately after his controller told him that the bank was trying to cancel him, he tried to call the bank’s CEO, Stephen Bishop. However, despite being a major customer (just think how much business MyPillow does), the bank put him on hold for an hour. He then tried calling back but was put on hold yet again, this time for another 45 minutes.
Despite that, Lindell remained defiant, saying that while the bank wants the Frank Speech account gone within a week and the rest in thirty days, he said “I am not … leaving, so you’re going to have to throw me out of your bank.”
Lindell likely has good reasons to be optimistic. While finding another bank, one willing to do business with him, will be a pain and likely cause a significant headache for his thriving business, he’s survived cancellation before.
Mike needs our support now more than ever!
