A Twitter poll crossed my feed today. As polls go, social media’s track record is pretty bad. First, they’re usually unambiguously biased to target a particular audience. Second, they are often “disrupted” when people of an opposition view get a hold of them. Third, they’re usually pretty dumb from the start. This poll that caught my attention fell into all three categories.
It asked, “The term ‘boomer’ is being used by Millenials [sic] and stupid little kids as an ageist slur against older, mature people. Considering this is an equivalent of the n-word, should it be banned on Facebook?”
After a little research, I found that Twitter poll was an accompaniment to the original Facebook poll. Both had identical results, as it likely should considering the premise. 95% of the 300,000+ responses on each network voted against the idea of banning “OK Boomer.” This is an outcome that goes well beyond any “disruption” I’ve ever seen. Sure, we’ve seen disruptions from popular leftist accounts like Bill Kristol and the DCCC get flipped while breaking 100,000 votes, but this one has taken such a massive turn against the poster’s premise that it simply cannot be attributed to disruption. Perhaps it’s because the premise is ludicrous, even to the left.
Here’s a screenshot, followed by the live poll:
DO NOT RETWEET if your intent is to disrupt the poll any further with troll voting. This is a form of harassment.

The poster also put up a video condemning the “disruption” and further trying to make his point that “OK Boomer” is equivalent to the N-word. It isn’t. It’s not even close. One is a heinous word that represents a stain in American history. The other is modern day meme that will be forgotten in a few weeks and that won’t represent the persecution of a race of people. The ludicrous comparison isn’t worth discussing.
This falls in-line with a movie our EIC watched today, “No Safe Spaces.” I haven’t had a chance to see it yet but I’ve seen enough from Dennis Prager and Adam Carolla to have a pretty good idea about where they went in their movie. The “snowflakes” of today want to turn everyone on their side of the political aisle into victims, and they want people to wear their victim badges with some sort of sordid pride. I’m not suggesting real victims shouldn’t be proud as survivors of their persecution. I’m saying most who try to fall under the victim-category in the modern world simply are not.
Under no circumstances should anyone say the N-word, especially with malice as their intent. Is it ageism to say “OK Boomer”? Perhaps. Is there ageism when people condemn Millennials based the name of their age? Perhaps. But neither qualifies as “hate speech,” even to most on the left. In fact, anecdotally I’ve seen the phrase used more by the left than the right.
One final point. Hate speech is still protected speech, just as it should be. Those who oppose it are right to do so if that’s how they truly feel, but that does not mean those they believe are spouting out hate speech should be suppressed. Let’s fight bad ideas with good ideas. Let’s fight hatred with sensibility and love. There’s no need to prevent an argument when it should be so easy to win.
This may be the most accurate Twitter poll in history. If anything, it falls short of exemplifying the real number of people who do no consider “OK Boomer” to be equivalent to the “N-word.” Let’s stop making victims out of everyone.
We are currently forming the American Conservative Movement. If you are interested in learning more, we will be sending out information in a few weeks.

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.
