Gun Control Activist David Hogg Pillow Company To Fight Mike Lindell Appears To Be Crashing And Burning
Gun control activist David Hogg announced in February that he was going to start a pillow company to country Trump supporter Mike Lindell.
From the Washington Post:
He[Hogg] is attempting to create a pillow company to compete against MyPillow, which is led by staunch Trump supporter Mike Lindell. The idea for the company, first tweeted as a joke by Hogg’s partner, software developer William LeGate, is becoming increasingly firm: The pair announced the name of their company, Good Pillow, on Tuesday night. Yet many aspects of the company are not fully formed and critics have thrown a wet blanket on the plan.
Shortly after the announcement the Twitter handle Good Pillow was born and the media was gushing that Good Pillow had more followers than My Pillow.
Two progressives have struck the first blow in their pillow fight with Donald Trump supporter Mike Lindell.
Good Pillow was launched online this week to rival the Lindell-run bedding giant MyPillow.
The startup was established by gun-control activist David Hogg and software engineer William LeGate as Lindell continues to face heavy criticism for spreading election conspiracy theories.
It may be true that Good Pillow had more followers but they were missing the most important part of the equation…sales.
So far a search of the US Patent and Trademark Office has no record of any new company being registered under the guise of Good Pillow or any other type of variant.
It appears that Hogg thought to run a business you just gotta tweet about it and then money magically appears.

However, even other Parkland survivors that are part of March For Our Lives with Hogg aren’t happy.
From the Guardian:
Cameron Kasky, 20, a fellow Parkland survivor, gun reform activist and MFOL founder, used Twitter to appear to attack Hogg’s actions, without mentioning him by name. “To those of you who marched, donated, lobbied, and called for change… I’m so sorry this is what it turned into. This is embarrassing,” he wrote in the first of a lengthy series of critical messages.
“But welcome to America, everything ends up a grift.”
In another thread, he wrote: “Hm, I see a lot of support for my pillow grift tweets from people in the Parkland community and people in the gun violence prevention community nationwide.”
The Parkland gun rights activists was also removed from the March For Our Lives board and placed on a leave of absence.
I’m just finding out about this whole David Hogg thing, but can someone explain to me exactly what he is doing to “end gun violence”?

Hogg has been very quiet on social media since he announced he was going start a business stop Mike Lindell, his last few posts were thanking people for supporting him financially.
Thank you all for your support I need it.
I still have to work through the gaslighting often times.
