From the extreme left of the political spectrum to center, you have communists, socialists, progressives, liberals, and moderates. Hillary Clinton has long identified as a progressive, Bernie obviously popularized modern socialism in America, and we have the increasing presence of anarchist communists in the form of Antifa. But where did all the liberals go?
Ben Shapiro has often distinguished between liberals and the Left. Liberals support big government, but within the republican process and with respect for natural rights such as free speech. They push for the gradual expansion of government, but they do so civilly, with intellectual debate and discourse.
The Left, on the other hand, subscribes to victory by any means necessary, ultimately endorsing fascistic violence and totalitarianism. They refuse to debate and in fact equate counter-arguments with actual violence, meaning they view their escalated actions as justified self-defense.
Such physical assault has recently come almost entirely from the Left, albeit from far-left fascist communists like Antifa. But while Antifa consists of violent extremists, is the group’s philosophy (and subsequent methodology) really that radical?
If it is, no one on the Left seems to feel the need to say so.
In fact, following Antifa’s attacks against right-wing protesters in Berkeley on Sunday, many left-wing leaders have defended the fascist group and justified its violence.
It’s easy to denounce the KKK, Nazism, and white supremacy. They’re evil scum. It’s that simple — no skinhead off my nose. So why can’t the Left do the same about Antifa? Because they actually support it.
The right-wing group at the heart of Sunday’s protest was Patriot Prayer, which has expressly condemned racism, white supremacy, and violence, specifically forbidding white supremacists from participating in their free speech rally. They don’t even have ties to the Alt-Right as far as we know. Predictably, that didn’t stop Leftists from lumping them in with neo-Nazis and Confederates in order to rationalize Antifa’s response.
Nancy Pelosi labeled the event “white supremacist” and an “Alt-Right demonstration.” Counter-protest organizers excused and even praised Antifa, including one pastor who said,“We have no regrets for how they left our city. We do not want white supremacists in our city. We do not want neo Nazis in our city. We do not want the alt right in our city.”
Another organizer agreed: “Our experience on the streets was that we were defended by people who came — as anti-fascists — to do that.”
Our pastor friend concluded, “Why is Antifa all of a sudden becoming labeled as the most violent element when they were literally here with a buffer between those who were here to harm us?”
I don’t know, maybe because only one group at that rally was clobbering peaceful demonstrators and innocent reporters with signs that read “No More Hate”?
While quick to condemn the abhorrent murder in Charlottesville, the Democrats on the United States Commission on Civil Rights refused to issue a similar rebuke against Antifa’s violent tactics.
And finally, instead of insisting his chief of police rescind the department’s repeated stand-down orders, Berkeley’s mayor now suggests that next month’s “Free Speech Week” be cancelled — which would probably go about as well as Baltimore’s “Don’t Kill Anybody” weekend anyway.
A few months ago, I wrote that the Democrat Party has been plotting for years to reveal itself as the haven for socialists, communists, and all kinds of gross Lefty radicals. Their embrace of Antifa is a partial fulfillment of that prediction, and it’s only going to get worse. Antifa is no longer extreme; it is mainstream Democrat.
That brings me back to my initial point: where are the honest, decent, intellectual, virtuous, peaceful liberals? Do they exist in any significant numbers? Someone who’s willing to defy the Democrat Party and speak out for free speech and peaceful assembly, for respect for the Constitution and our nation’s republican system? Dave Rubin is looking pretty lonely right about now.
Liberals, I disagree with you completely, but we need you. This country needs you because it needs sensible debate. If you won’t separate yourselves from the modern Left, then we’ll never find common ground; one side will inevitably obliterate the other.
I don’t want that. This country did it once before, and it was likewise split along party lines. Let’s not repeat history.
Sensible liberals, if you still exist, make your voices heard.

Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of six sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- ZStack: Improve your immune system with the Z-Stack protocol or rejuvenate your body from vaccines or shedding with Z-DTox by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them JD sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
Covid variant BA.5 is spreading. It appears milder but much more contagious and evades natural immunity. Best to boost your immune system with new Z-Dtox and Z-Stack nutraceuticals from our dear friend, the late Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
