If you have not read the book 1984 by George Orwell (or seen the movie), please do so. It will bring a sense of clarity to the times we live in today. Here is a partial summary from Sparknotes.
Winston Smith is a low-ranking member of the ruling Party in London, in the nation of Oceania. Everywhere Winston goes, even his own home, the Party watches him through telescreens; everywhere he looks he sees the face of the Party’s seemingly omniscient leader, a figure known only as Big Brother. The Party controls everything in Oceania, even the people’s history and language. Currently, the Party is forcing the implementation of an invented language called Newspeak, which attempts to prevent political rebellion by eliminating all words related to it. Even thinking rebellious thoughts is illegal. Such thoughtcrime is, in fact, the worst of all crimes.
As the story progresses, without giving too much away, Winston is captured by the bad guys and tortured for “thoughtcrimes.” His jailer holds up 4 fingers and asks Winston to state how many there are and Winston says “four” because the answer was obvious. He then holds up 5 fingers and punishes Winston further when Winston refuses to say anything other than 4 fingers. Of course, the tactic is intended to break Winston’s will and gradually bring his thinking in line with “Big Brother,” the omnipresent antagonist. Below is a disturbing clip from a recent film adaptation.
Why do I bring this up? It is what immediately came to mind when I learned about a defiant teenage boy who resisted his teacher’s attempts to turn him into a racist. Sounds strange, I know. Let me give you a bit of context.
In a previous post, I shared a news quote about a far-left school system in Loudoun County, Virginia. In a nutshell, the school system pushed the wretched, vile and hateful rhetoric of critical race theory (Is my bias showing?) and the parents pushed back on their curriculum. In retort, the following happened as reported by The Daily Wire…
“A group of current and former teachers and others in Loudoun County, Virginia, compiled a lengthy list of parents suspected of disagreeing with school system actions, including its teaching of controversial racial concepts — with a stated purpose in part to “infiltrate,” use “hackers” to silence parents’ communications, and “expose these people publicly.”
Well, imagine my shock to find out the origins of a recent viral video. In the video, a teacher from Loudoun County Public Schools shows a picture of two women. The teacher then asks the student to describe the women. Rather than point out that one woman was black and the other white, the mellow and respectful young man said he saw 2 people “chilling.” The teacher becomes irate and tries to get the student to judge them based on their race (presumably so he can begin categorizing them as oppressor and the oppressed). The boy responds…
“Well, at the end of the day, wouldn’t that just be feeding into the problem of looking at race instead of just acknowledging them as two normal people?”
Unfortunately, the video does not go much beyond that. I wish it did. Its not often you get to see such courage on display like that. Click here to see the video on YouTube. Below are a few tweets about the video.

This is unbelievable. Public schools are actually trying to indoctrinate kids into seeing racial differences. What do they aim to accomplish here other than creating more division? https://t.co/BgWaSbpREZ

All I can say is Wow. Awesome job by the student. Are teachers trying to teach students to be racist now? @Timcast you mentioned Loudoun County this week. Here is #CriticalRaceTheory in action https://t.co/u96JuIfuFh

This is THE PROBLEM w/ the current state of affairs in this country (seemingly), however (ironically), this is also THE SOLUTION! We should all “come off mute” & challenge simplistic ideals that challenges Dr. King’s proclamation of CHARACTER over COLOR 🇺🇸 https://t.co/t9VMcmUtxO

I don’t know who that teenage boy is but, God bless him. He’s my hero.
At this rate, how long until MLK is cancelled?
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report has appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. One of our YouTube accounts was banned and another has been suspended. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancelation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects. These questions are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting cancelled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. 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 are on track to be short by about $5300 per month in order to maintain operations.
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. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
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.
American Conservative Movement
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.
Covid variant BA.5 is spreading. It appears milder but much more contagious and evades natural immunity. Best to boost your immune system with new Z-Dtox and Z-Stack nutraceuticals from our dear friend, the late Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
