Between a new pro-Trump “America First” Caucus, and the upcoming launch of MyPillow CEO, Mike Lindell’s, launch of a social media platform called “Frank” to counter the radical liberalism of other social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and even YouTube, liberal media is ‘freaking out.”
The bigger picture here is the utter hypocrisy of whining so loudly about these two things happening currently.
Those same voices have no issue with liberal congressional caucuses or liberal social media platforms, specifically Twitter, Facebook, and the video platform YouTube, banning, suspending and locking accounts for nothing more than wrong-think aka conservative opinion.
Disclaimer: This is the conservative news happening now, not an endorsement of any social media platform or group, just an honest opinion of conservatives are fighting back against radical liberalism because RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) won’t.

LETS BE ‘FRANK’
We’ll start with Lindell’s upcoming launch of “Frank”.
First off it is being billed as a “free speech” website, but in reality, it should be billed by Lindell as a conservative/Christian website that allows all Americans to join, regardless of religion.
There are limits to the speech that is free, but those limits are generally something Christian conservatives usually abide by anyway, such as no pornography, no using God’s name in vain, no cursing or using terms, in Lindell’s words “You don’t get to use the four swear words: the c-word, the n-word, the f-word, or God’s name in vain.”
So, calling it a Christian conservative leaning social media site is far more accurate than a “free speech,” and the basic guidelines, which conforms more to those of faith, while still allowing anyone to join and participate, almost guarantees that liberals won’t make it a day or two on the website.
Look through liberal Twitter accounts, or Facebook liberals, and they seemingly are incapable of sharing their thoughts without constantly using one or all of the four words Lindell will ban in his terms of service.
“Frankly,” I have no issue and take no offense at a curse word here or there to make a point, but after hearing Lindell speak a number of times, as well as liberal hatred of him for his pro-Trump support and America First attitude, it could be argued that Lindell set those specific blocks for no other reason that to drive liberals insane.
Remember Lindell himself was banned from Twitter and other social media sites because he produced a documentary which purports to show election fraud and irregularities during the 2020 election.
While Lindell’s site is suffering from some minor delays, the reaction by the liberal media, along with other liberals and Democrats, has been nothing short of entertaining as they highlight what cannot be said, pointing out how that the speech is not totally free.
In a way they are right, but it is still highly entertaining to watch them have an absolute freakfest because they cannot say “F*ck over and over and over again in public, or more angering to them, they cannot use God’s name in vain.
One of the most liberal sites online, other than news organizations, SNOPES, has a piece out about it, and what they highlight tells you all you need to know how badly liberals are taking the new launch:
Those reports were accurate. In a video that appears to have been posted on April 14, Lindell gave a general, and at times rambling, description of Frank, saying users would get a preview of it on April 16, 2021, but it would be formally launched on the morning of April 19, 2021. Lindell said Frank would be “like a YouTube/Twitter combination, you’ve never seen anything like it,” and added:
You’re going to love it. You’re going to have your own, like, YouTube channel, only that’s your Twitter handle, or “Twitter channel” so to speak… You’re not going to have to worry about what you’re saying, and what’s going — and worry about being able to speak out freely.
And I do want to say one thing. That when you get in there on Thursday [April 16], when you get in there, look at our — I want you to look at our mission statement. Because we went back and defined — we found from our founding fathers and the Supreme Court and stuff, what defines free speech. So you’re not going to have to worry about people, that they’re on there, there’s going to be a good reporting system. But you don’t get to use the four swear words, you know the C word, the N word, the F word, or God’s name in vain. You can’t — free speech is not pornography, free speech isn’t “I’m going to kill you.” It’s very well defined in our mission statement. [Emphasis is added].
Yes, they, and many others emphasize those particular restrictions. The claim is hypocrisy to call something free speech and them limit the speech, but in reality, that is just the hammer they have chosen to as a weapon, when in reality, what they always highlight is the specific words, along with not using “God’s name in vain.”
Is there a difference between what Twitter/YouTube/Facebook does in censorship, to what Lindell is doing?
Yes. One major difference.
Lindell’s mission statement, according to him, describes in detail the exact words that cannot be used, while Twitter/YouTube/Facebook hide behind generalizations which allow them to ban people for simply having an opinion other than the liberals running those platforms.
In other words, claiming something is “abusive,” or “against community standards,” without detailing what types of statements they consider abusive or against those “standards, is a far cry from saying, this word, this threat, this pornography is not allowed.
One pretends to be for free speech, the other explains it all in detail.
I still maintain he should have billed it as a Christian conservative website, rather than a free speech website, but other than that, it is encouraging to see a conservative with very deep pockets giving conservatives a place to speak freely should they choose to join a social media group.
Lindell will be using his own servers, meaning entities like Amazon, cannot pull the rug out from user the website as they did with Parler.

That expression is guaranteed to send liberals heads crashing to their desks, because they associate it not with American pride, but with Donald Trump, who does associate it with American pride.
Pro-Trump congressional Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar, have formed a new conservative caucus named “America First,” and apparently liberal news is not pleased with what they call “the most nativist stuff we’ve seen.”
How badly are liberal news outlets taking this America First Caucus?
MSNBC shows their anger with the headline “GOP’s new ‘America First Caucus’ follows in some blatantly white nationalist footsteps.”
Some key quotes:
• Its platform, now circulating in Washington, is little more than a retread of the white nationalist screeds of the 1910s and 1920s.
• During the late 1910s, as the United States reeled from a deadly pandemic, economic turmoil, race riots and a surge in immigration all at once, these white nationalist tropes found a receptive audience in the American people.
Washington Post (Archive.is link here) uses the same language as the punchbowl news quoted above:
• A seven-page document that lays out policy positions for the caucus includes nativist language and perpetuates the falsehood that there was widespread fraud and corruption in the 2020 election. According to the document, the group says it seeks to advance former president Donald Trump’s legacy, which means stepping “on some toes” and sacrificing “sacred cows for the good of the American nation.”
They whine a little more before concluding their article with:
The ideas outlined in the “America First Caucus” document indicate just how far to the extreme right some Republican lawmakers stand — and feel comfortable openly expressing such opinions. The document calls to suspend all immigration, saying such pauses are “absolutely essential in assimilating the new arrivals and weeding out those who could not or refused to abandon their old loyalties and plunge head-first into mainstream American society.”
• Conservative Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is launching a new “America First” caucus, her office confirmed Friday, bringing together a group of far-right lawmakers known for their controversial rhetoric.
There are many more examples, but the pattern is clear, they hate the idea of an America First caucus, and the belief that America and what is best for America should be “first” in the eyes and actions of our nation’s leaders.
To them, protecting America and moving back towards the values the country was built on, is white nationalism, racist, and “nativist,” the later of which seems to be the key word the media is grabbing on to.
