MIKE LINDELL (CEO, MYPILLOW): This time, about 17 days ago, when someone put up on the internet, actual machine -- new machine election fraud, I retweeted it, and they took my Twitter down. Now, when they took it down, this was interesting, they didn't take it down all the way, I just couldn't do anything, and they were running my Twitter like they were me. My friends are going “you're not tweeting very much, and when you do" -- I said, “I'm not doing that," so I tried to take it down, and I got a tweet, a thing from Germany saying, “These are Twitter rules and you cannot do this, take anything down." So, they ran my Twitter for about 14 days, 15 days. 

Then, yesterday, they put it back up so I could run it, and I made one tweet and the tweet was a good -- a good letter written by one of my employees because I'm getting attacked about my integrity and stuff, and they took it down five minutes later. And then a week ago, they did a -- Dominion, went online, went on TV and said they were going to go after Mike Lindell. Well they did, they hired hit groups and bots and trolls went after all my vendors all these box stores to cancel me out. This cancel culture, fake stories coming out to attack my Lindell Recovery Network which helps addicts across the country. It's just a shame, Tucker. What they -- if they can do it to me, believe me, they can do it to anyone out there, but we're not -- I'm not backing down. We cannot back down out of fear this time, nobody can.

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): I totally agree.

LINDELL: I told these box stores, you guys, these aren't real people, these are trolls and bots. The real people will buy the products and will support you. You can't do this just because they cancel you, try and cancel culture. 

CARLSON: Can we -- may I ask you one question, since you grew up in this country. If they disagree with you or think that you're saying things that are incorrect, why don't they explain what those things are and why don't they try to convince you that you're wrong? I mean, I thought the rules were if you think someone is saying something incorrect, you explain how it's incorrect and you convince his audience that actually you're right and he's wrong. When did that go away? When did we decide force was the only answer to disagreement? 

LINDELL: Right. And that, you know, they -- I can't even livestream on Facebook, they've shut it down. But you're exactly right, Tucker. What I'd say to them, with this particular thing that's going on now, I've been all-in trying to find the machine fraud and we've found it, we have all the evidence. So what all these -- all these outlets that have been calling me from The Washington Post, New York Times, every outlet in the country, they go, “Mike Lindell, there's no evidence and he's making fraudulent statements." No, I have the evidence, I dare people to put it on. I dare Dominion to sue me because then it would get out faster. So this is, you know, they don't -- they don't want to talk about it.

CARLSON: No, they don't.

LINDELL: They don't want to say -- they just say Oh, you're wrong." And I'm going --

CARLSON: Well, they're not making conspiracy theories go away by doing that.
