Andrew Torba, the founder of Gab.com, an online community where freedom of speech is paramount, says he’s no longer going to be doing interviews with “Paganist” media.

Just last week, Torba announced that as his company has been “deplatformed” by dozens of service providers, including app stores, banks, hosting providers, email servicers and more, he is “transitioning” his platform to Christian businesses, as WND reported.
“I encourage everyone else to do the same. If they are not serving God, they are serving Satan and I’m simply not going to fund that activity,” he said at the time.
Now, a report in PJMedia explains that one of his new practices is to do away with interviews with “Paganist” media outlets.
PJMedia’s Megan Fox explained, “Torba who runs the fastest-growing free-speech social media in America—where you can get verified and they won’t ban you for liking your president—has the answer to our problem with institutionalized bigotry against Republicans.
“The left owns every major media company and has infiltrated every institution in American government and culture (including the board gaming industry),” she explained. So his response is “brilliant and also funny,” she said.
“New PR policy at Gab until further notice,” Torba announced. “If you’re not a Christian reporter or from a Christian media company you will be ignored. All other press statements will be published on our blog for pagan propagandists to pick from.”

The PJM report noted “media types” have gone over the edge with the issue, claiming Torba is violating the First Amendment with his decision.
Not so, he explained.
“You are not entitled to my time, pagans! Doesn’t mean you can’t speak freely on Gab though,” he said. “Free association, private company, deal with it.”
Journos are big mad about this 🤣 They are so low IQ that they somehow believe this infringes on their free speech. You are not entitled to my time, pagans! Doesn’t mean you can’t speak freely on Gab though. Free association, private company, deal with it. https://t.co/SsGWXOvBfm

CNBC tried to lure Gab's CEO into a trap. He said no. Republicans can learn a lot from this guy. https://t.co/5WtCGCobBS

The report noted, “Torba is showing conservatives that they need to think radically differently about surviving this new reality. You can’t conduct business as usual with people who hate you and want you eradicated.”
He is suggesting, the report said, a vaccine against those who want you “to not be able to feed your family.”
The PJM report explained by now, it’s fair to “lump the fake news media into the social justice warrior category. They are activists out to destroy everything you hold dear.”
Earlier, discussing deplatforming, Torba said the problem is that many Christians think that to “be in the world, but not of the world” means giving “our money, time and data” to enemies.
“This has got to stop, right now,” he wrote.
“I am in the process of transitioning every part of my financial expenses to support Christian businesses, Christian media companies, Christian content creators, and Christian people,” he said. “I am done giving my money to The Enemy and funding the destruction of our country and values. I encourage everyone else to do the same. If they are not serving God, they are serving Satan and I’m simply not going to fund that activity.”
He asked his readers to “examine the businesses, brands, and media companies you currently support both financially and with your time. If they are virtue signaling critical theory nonsense or owned by demons you should immediately stop paying them and using their services.”
This, he said, is “about building our own Christian economy. One without cancel culture. One that doesn’t embrace the demonic and degenerate cult religion of critical theory.”4
COVID-19 lockdowns are taking 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 resurgence of lockdowns 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 $17,300 to stay afloat through March when we hope the economy will be more open, 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. In November, 2020, we hit 1.2 million visitors.
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.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, 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 going.
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 11,000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
PLEASE Help Us Fight the Good Fight
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
