Coronavirus panic has prompted many politicians, mostly Democrats, to impose draconian mandates on people regarding social distancing and wearing face masks. Civil disobedience is on the rise, but so is the shaming that comes with such things. At an event today, a reporter tried to “coronavirus shame” the President by noting his guests were not social distancing. The President’s response was a winner and highlighted the media dishonesty surrounding such things.
Reporter: Your guests aren’t social distancing
Trump: That’s ok. It’s a peaceful protest. pic.twitter.com/KJ3xOuiKeO

“Just in this room you have dozens of people who are not following the guidelines of New Jersey,” the reporter said.
His reply was a jab from multiple angles against the reporter as well as the draconian measures being implemented by people like New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy.
“You can call it political activity but I’d call it a peaceful protest because they heard you were coming up, and they know the news is fake,” Trump said. “They understand it better than anybody. They asked whether or not they can be here.”
Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and other groups have been holding what the media calls “peaceful protests.” In many cases, these riots are clearly destructive and illegal, but mainstream media refuses to report on them. Meanwhile, they decry spikes in coronavirus cases while blaming them on states reopening, never pointing out the obvious culprits.
President Trump’s response was spot on. Perhaps churches should hold “peaceful protests” every Sunday.
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
