‘They’re Afraid Of It!’ CEO Of MyPillow Terrifies Hollywood With Abortion Movie Using Their Own Game
The new abortion film based on the life of Abby Johnson and her courageous story shattered Hollywood box office expectations this weekend, ranking at #4 and paying for itself in one weekend. CEO Of MyPillow, Mike Lindell, took it to the left using their own game, the big screen. The left has done everything they can to keep the movie out of the public discourse, and they lost.
“They’re afraid of it…. It’s like they’re living in fear.” Lindell stated of Hollywood and liberals in an interview with Breitbart.
The movie only opened in 1,059 theaters nationwide. It currently ranks #4, is making $6.4 million where analysts expected the film would only make between $2 and $3 million. The movie also pulled in $5,770 per screen, breaking an all-time U.S. indie film Hollywood release record.
Under all circumstances, networks refusing to air commercials and Facebook refusing to accept promotional ads… Twitter temporarily banning its account, twice, and at one point removing most of its followers… The left demonizing the movie on every blog possible…. The movie has been a resounding success and is just getting started.
The timing was perfect. While production on Unplanned began 9 months ago, it was only in the last 3 months that we have seen the left surge to the furthest corners of the left on abortion.
From third trimester abortions, to even infanticide, they have been vocal and loud. Some states with Democrat control passed legislation literally giving a free-for-all all the way up to the moment of birth.
Lindell sees providential timing as well.
“I just felt led to do that,” continued Lindell. “To see God’s timing, nine months later, everything that’s happening right now, it’s just amazing. And you know it’s going to make an impact when stations aren’t advertising it. They’re afraid of it. A theater in my home state — just last week — wasn’t going to show it, and hundreds of people called there, and now they’re on-board. It’s like they’re living in fear.”
Lindell recalled his decision to provide the film’s producers with $1 million of additional funding.
“This is a true story,” said Lindell. “It’s going to help so many people change their hearts. It’s going to save so many lives. I talked to my dad. We prayed about it, and I said, ‘Let’s do this.’ I called them back and said, ‘I’ll do a cameo. I’ll do a part in it, but I want it to be a really good movie. A quality movie, because it’s got one of the best messages ever.’ I asked, ‘Are you short any money?’ and they said they were short a million dollars, and I said, ‘Well, you’re covered.’”
The left has used Hollywood for decades to promote its agenda on all levels. This movie fights back, using their own game, and has future ramifications that are unlimited.

Jason Jones, an American film producer, pro-life activist, and human rights worker, has a ‘special message’ about Unplanned and compares the movie to ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’.
“When Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’, could she have imagined its impact, that slavery would die less than 15 years later? When I watched the screening of the movie, ‘Unplanned’, I was filled with hope and conviction. I thought, ‘This film has the power to end abortion!’”
“Unplanned, can be, the ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’ of the abortion issue!”
I have to agree!
Published in 1852, ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’ had a profound effect on attitudes toward African Americans and slavery in the U.S. and is said to have helped lay the groundwork for the Civil War and ending slavery.
This movie can do the same, if enough people see it!
I would encourage you to listen to Jason Jones, take it to heart, and do what you can to help make sure every American can, and does see this movie. There are so many ways to help.
“I stand for what I believe,” declared Lindell. “I stand up for God, and I stand up for the president, and I’m not going to change my advertising. I do what’s best for my customers and my employees. I have 1,600 employees who rely on my decisions.”
Lindell went on, “I’ve been attacked publicly, out in the open, at a state fair in Minnesota. I know it was a plant. This gal came out and said, ‘You’re hurting your employees. You’re staying on these stations and backing this president.’”
“Conducting oneself honorably yields its own rewards,” said Lindell.
“If you do what’s right, it comes out right,” remarked Lindell.
