The free speech movement was born at Berkeley and quickly spread across universities throughout the nation. It represented the pinnacle of empowerment for education – both those being educated and doing the educating – because it highlighted the voice of the minority perspective as righteously allowed to be given a platform in the freest nation in the world. Fast forward to 2019 and the same type of forces that gave rise to campus free speech are now conspiring to quash all dissent.
Welcome to the world that seeded the need for “No Safe Spaces,” a documentary by Dennis Prager and Adam Carolla that exposes the sad reality of campus life in America today. It’s a documentary that was made for a society in the midst of an unprecedented dilemma: American universities that have systematically replaced the free exchange of ideas with the reinforcement of THEIR ideas only. For the sake of “protecting” young adults, American universities have adopted the extremely dangerous “safe space” mentality in which freedom of speech is based on approval and freedom of thought only applies to thoughts that do not challenge the accepted narratives of leftism and progressivism.
The documentary details instance after instance of the hypocrisy permeating through America’s halls of higher learning. From anti-fascists applying fascist techniques to diversity programs that subvert the notions of equality among fellow humans, the instances detailed in this documentary point to a single conclusion: American universities do not support freedom of expression, nor do they allow for the expansion of ideas that could puncture the bubble-wrap they place around young adults.
If you go into this movie thinking you’re going to see a bunch of conservatives whining about suppression, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Left-leaning employees at universities have experienced their own forms of suppression when they’ve pierced the progressive echo chambers with rational thoughts and common sense. To their chagrin, they’ve found out it isn’t just about protecting progressive perspectives at these universities, but also the mantras of social justice warriors who fight against the cause of liberty for the sake of comfort and protection. Leftists who challenge the bubble-wrap mentality are treated just as badly as conservatives who speak out against oppression on ideas.
Prager and Carolla are the most unlikely pair to be delivering this documentary, at least on the surface. One is an atheist, the other is a devout Jew. One gets his kicks making people laugh and racing cars while the other enjoys conducting orchestras. But both share a love for America and the freedoms that are protected by our Constitution, including the 1st Amendment. It’s in their differences that they can both champion the common cause of keeping American thoughts flowing freely. This is why their documentary is so robust. They don’t have to agree on everything to be driven against the lunacy engulfing American universities today.
It’s been a long time since I reviewed and recommended a movie. I’m just too hard to impress. But Dennis Prager and Adam Carolla have put together one of the most important documentaries of our time. Find a theater playing #NoSafeSpaces right now.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
