“We’re all in this together.”
These words are normally comforting. They’re a show of solidarity and a reminder that the problems we’re experiencing at any given moment are shared by the group. But when the words are coming from a drone flying over people walking along the Hudson River in New York City, it doesn’t seem as comforting. In fact, it sounds downright Orwellian.
The “Anti-COVID-19 Volunteer Drone Task Force” sounds like something out of a dystopian novel, but it’s real. It represents a use of drone technology that most probably didn’t even realize was a thing, at least not in the United States. We’ve seen examples of this in other countries such as China, but seeing these drones watching us and giving us “instructions” in America is disheartening. This is just another reason why the American Conservative Movement’s upcoming event—the Saving America Conference—is so important for Americans to watch on April 18.
Some will say that it’s no big deal, that using technology in this manner is understandable. But the implications of surveillance equipment being used to “deliver messages” seems more like a normalization technique so that the general population is less alarmed by government-controlled drones flying above us at all times. According to The Blaze, reactions have not been positive.
With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
To say some folks were creeped out by the drone and parking lot loudspeaker videos is an understatement. Here are some of the comments:
- “That’s very George Orwell of them.”
- “That ‘we are all in this together’ crap is f’in creepy. Sounds uber-fascist.”
- “This is happens when u put democrats in power.”
- “1984 China Techno Tyranny! This is sick! I do not consent!”
- “This is the weirdest dystopia plot ever.”
- “This is becoming downright creepy.”
- “Makes no sense — totally not going to stop the infection rate, but they are teaching people how to behave and to follow orders.”
- “At first I thought Russia…. but I was wrong it seems.”
The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh wasn’t comforted by the words, either.
Our dystopian future has officially arrived

The phrase, “we’re all in this together,” isn’t usually creepy. But when it’s coming out of a surveillance drone speaker warning people about social distancing, it’s less about comfort and more about normalizing the surveillance state.
Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
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.
