Sayin' it in French: Le Connard

When I can’t be ladylike, I say it in French. Minnesota’s Mike Lindell, better known as Pillow Guy, spreader of merde, henceforth will be known as Le Connard.

Le Connard

Well, it has been alleged Le Connard has been a naughty garçon, at least in the opinion of Dominion Voting Systems who's suing him for $1.3 billion. 

"Lindell — a talented salesman and former professional card counter — sells the lie to this day because the lie sells pillows. MyPillow's defamatory marketing campaign — with promo codes like 'FightforTrump,' '45,' 'Proof,' and 'QAnon'—has increased MyPillow sales by 30-40% and continues duping people into redirecting their election-lie outrage into pillow purchases," the complaint said.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Lindell said he was "very, very happy" to find out about the suit. 


That's super naughty.

The boys at Twitter don't care much for him either, as they've permanently suspended him, presumably not by the thumbs.

Le Connard is not satisfied with being a mere user of Parler (that’s conveniently already French!), allegedly a "free-speech-focused and unbiased alternative to mainstream social networks such as Twitter and Facebook" (source). He's starting his own social media site, Frank, which he promises will be free-speech-focused and an unbiased... . Probably not, you get the picture. For a start, users have to comply with the ten commandments. Presumably Le Connard signed the waiver for the bit about not bearing false witness. 

The more the merrier, I say. Here's hoping Le Fiasco, aka former president, fragments the market even further with his own social media site that will not be free-speech-focused and an unbiased... .

According to Le Connard, Frank will be quite something:

He has described the project as a mixture of YouTube, Twitter and forums. ...

[He] has previously claimed the new website will be able to accommodate one billion users, and suggested it will attract major influencers alongside the general public.


So, in this spirit, assisted by a burner phone number, I’ve been accepted as a VIP Member (no less) of Frank. This presumably qualifies me to be an alpha tester of his buggy Web site. It goes live this Thursday at midnight (April 15, 2021): fasten your seatbelts, etc.

Apparently he couldn’t afford a graphic artist.
