Authoritarian government officials have used the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to increase their control over the populace. Part of that includes removing as much personal engagement as possible. Simple gestures like handshakes are anathema in most of America now, and hugging is out of the question. But the most personal physical experience we can have with another person—sex—has been largely danced around until recently.
Leave it to Seattle-based King County Public Health Department to “go there.” On their Instagram page, a recently resurfaced post recommended the use of “glory holes” for sex. They even encouraged a “proper” method of doing it by cutting a hole in a shower curtain.
As Seattle journalist Brandi Kruse noted on Twitter, they even mentioned Lowe’s Home Improvement as a good place to buy the improvised sexual safety device.
😳Just heard @dorimonson talk about this. Back in October @KCPubHealth posted a video on its official Insta advocating for people to try “glory holes” as a safer way to have sex during #COVID-19, suggesting a shower curtain from @Lowe’s would do the trick: https://t.co/38ZyT2ckAU pic.twitter.com/6waWRVBszH

Despite a flood of information and studies demonstrating both the amplified effects of COVID-19 (where’s the flu?) as well as the inefficacy of coronavirus safety measures (see the Danish study), many lawmakers are pushing more draconian measures to prolong lockdowns and accentuate coronavirus terror. In California, Governor Gavin Newsom has gone so far as to set a lockdown threshold that was impossible to avoid.
As society becomes more polarized and paralyzed by multiple major events happening at once, we need personal connections to help us cope. But in Seattle, their solution is a trip to Lowe’s for sexual assistance.
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. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. 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.
