MyPillow founder Mike Lindell is set on Monday to launch his own social media platform – "Frank" – as a free-speech alternative welcoming conservatives and Trump-supporters like him and others who have been banned from major platforms like Facebook and Twitter. But no cussing.

"You're not gonna have to worry about what you're saying or worry about being able to speak out freely," Lindell said in a video update on the site. But "you don’t get to use the four swear words ... or God’s name in vain."

Lindell described the network as a combination of Youtube and Twitter on which users can blog and post video, according to The Verge.

"Free speech is not pornography," Lindell also said. "Free speech isn't 'I'm gonna kill you.' It's very well defined in our mission statement."

Lindell said he has spent millions of dollars on the project over the last four weeks and has spent the last four years setting up the network.
