A bank used by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has chosen to cut ties with him due to fear of risk to its reputation. The Minnesota Bank & Trust terminated its relationship with Lindell after warning they would do so if he didn’t voluntarily close his accounts. The pillow tycoon went on Steve Bannon’s show “War Room” to discuss the situation. Lindell said, “I just got served the papers. They’re closing my account at Minnesota Bank & Trust, that’s Heartland Financial Inc. . . . Well the cowards served this paper on Friday afternoon after the close of business.
They didn’t even bother to sign it.” Of course, having a bank account, especially at a particular institution is not a legal right and Lindell is not being oppressed here. Conservatives used to argue all the time that private businesses have the right to choose the people with whom they want to do business. But now their talking points have changed so that when a right-winger isn’t accommodated to, it’s all of a suddenly canceled culture and an infringement of free speech.
