There was a report that a group of pro-Trump supporters shouted down a Leftist speaker at a college in California a few days ago. Many on the Right intrinsically understand this is wrong on multiple levels and the purpose here is to detail why we need to refrain from this abhorrent behavior.
1. When someone acts like a barbarian they become the a barbarian.
This is a bit of a cliché, but it does hold some wisdom. It is best to differentiate oneself from the other side and show our policies as superior in the marketplace of ideas. We certainly cannot condemn the Left for acting like children when our side engages in the same behaviour.
2. Using their ‘advantage’ against them.
There are certain martial arts disciplines that teach that one should use an opponent’s advantages against them. In the case of politics, ad hominem attacks and childish behaviour from the Left has become depressingly prevalent over the years Pointing out that these tactics signify a decided lack of intellectual acumen on their part takes this ‘advantage’ away for them. When their verbal assaults are met with superior concepts and facts they only have two options in response, they can either try to claw their way out of the gutter or continue as before.
We have the better ideas, so no matter which way they turn they lose the argument.
3. It is against our basic principles.
There is a basic litmus test that differentiates the agendas of the Left from those of the Right. The Left would prefer to have as much control over your life as possible, the Right eschews this principle. We on the Right would prefer to live our lives unmolested by government interference. This interference extends to that of free-speech.
A few months back, alt-right and alt-lite snowflakes descended on a production of Julius Caesar in Central Park that depicted the eponymous assassinated dictator as Donald Trump; they proclaimed that such speech amounted to violence, and therefore had to be shut down. According to Reason: They had pledged to answer questions from the general public, but several irate MAGA-hat-wearing audience members were intent on hijacking the event from the get-go.
The answer to the shout-down is the rule of law. They’re not truly grieved in the least that he was shouted down. This is not the first time we’ve seen a wave of campus shout-downs (the shout-down was a common radical left tactic when I was in law school).
And the best reason…
4. Our ideas are superior.
In some ways it is fascinating to study the Left and glimpse into how they talk amongst themselves. There is a site that has advice and talking points by Leftist for their ideological brethren. While they label our ideas a ‘awful’ [and fail to specify why] they do talk about how popular those ideas are and justify why this is the case.
When you can help it, don’t say conservative. As the polls above demonstrate, conservative is no insult. The word and the concept are both quite popular. This is because, while conservative policies are awful, Americans overwhelmingly support stereotyped conservative principles—small government, low taxes, free markets, strong defense, traditional families. It is very clever framing. Who favors a bigger government than we need? Who wants to pay more taxes? Who can oppose freedom, an effective military, or families?
Always be principled in our demeanor and comportment – even the Left acknowledges amongst themselves that our ideas are better than theirs.
Too Few Are Telling the Truth
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), and Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCO). 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 break away. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken away 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 nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- 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.
Also, we could use contributions of content. If you write or want to start writing and you share our patriotic, conservative, America First ideology, contact us. The contact form on this and all pages on the site goes directly to me.
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.
- Freedom Phone: Use promo code “MAGA” and get $50 off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them we 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.
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,
