It’s no secret that colleges and universities in the United States are progressive indoctrination centers. Conservative parents take a risk every time they send their children to college knowing that the vast majority of professors and staff, as well as a large chunk of the students, are radical leftists bent on bringing our kids into the “woke” crowd and building the next generation of social justice warriors. Is there a solution?
Conservative commentator and movie producer Dinesh D’Souza has some ideas. Of note is his proposal to offer a virtual college experience through which students can achieve a “Harvard-level education” without the requisite radicalization that happens on physical college campuses. It’s a novel idea that would be much cheaper than trying to build our own universities and much faster than trying to insert conservative professors into preexisting colleges.
“With regard to digital media and media generally – I mean we have to build our own platform. So I’m very much in the camp that says that at least in the short term, we need to build an alternative educational infrastructure, entertainment infrastructure, we need our own comedians, we really need the whole thing,” D’Souza told John Solomon.
But it wouldn’t just be cheaper for the conservative movement in general. It would be cheaper for the students and their parents. According to D’Souza, it could be accomplished for around $5000 per student per year, far less than the current cost of education at most physical universities.
“We basically need one online university that has assembled together, the 100 top teachers and scholars in the world that will offer a Harvard level education for $5,000 a year,” he said. “If you did that, you would make all of higher education obsolete overnight. I mean, the universities wouldn’t go away, but it was kind of like when the iPhone first came out, suddenly, all other phones were obsolete. We can do that for education, we can do that for media, you just have to make the right moves.”
After examining other online learning solutions and applying D’Souza’s perspectives on the matter, we believe it’s possible. The right platform would be necessary, and for the sake of transparency I must divulge that we are working on such a platform now. D’Souza had mentioned entertainment as also needing such a solution, and as fate would have it our platform will accommodate video and music entertainment as well. At this stage we only need investors and some blockchain developers to make it work.
“I think that the money is there and the will exists to do it. It’s just that our side is very erratic and there hasn’t been the creativity on the supply side to create these things,” D’Souza said. “I mean, just think, for example, of the amount of creativity it took for Roger Ailes to go to Rupert Murdoch and just say, ‘Listen, you know, all these cable channels are fighting for half the country. Geez, why don’t we start one, make it a real thing, we’ll offer a rival point of view, we’ll take the other half of the country.'”
The radical left has been pushing an agenda in education, mainstream media, and Hollywood for over six decades. Conservatives have been complacent, relying solely on ideas. But as the left has demonstrated, bad ideas driven by mass adoption through propaganda and indoctrination can be more compelling than the truth.
Some have called for us to fight back in their venues, but as I noted in the latest episode of Conservative News Briefs (as well as part of the latest NOQ Report show), it’s not as easy as some seem to think. If we try to move forward within the left’s various venues then we have to play by their rules. That’s not going to end well for our philosophies and it will be hard, perhaps impossible to achieve our goals. What D’Souza is recommending makes much more sense.
As long as we keep playing in the left’s playground, we’re not going to come out on top. But if we can change the game, shift the paradigm, and create our own platforms, we can achieve our goals nicely.
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.
