Are you a racist? Newly elevated to Cabinet-level status, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg can answer that question for all. Yes, you are, because even the roadways across the nation have been built upon systemic racism – white folks have no shot at wriggling out of this accusation. The former small-town Indiana mayor recently told reporter April Ryan that racism is built into the country’s highway system, and “that’s why the jobs plan has specifically committed to reconnect some of the communities that were divided by these dollars.”

What does that even mean? Perhaps Buttigieg is adopting his enigmatic leader’s cryptic style of communication. Pete went on to explain, still encrypted: “There are stories, and I think Philadelphia and Pittsburgh [and] in New York, Robert Moses famously saw through the construction of a lot of highways.” One can assume Buttigieg is calling out the famous white urban planner who built roughly 700 miles of road in and around New York City and upstate, 20,000 acres of parkland and public beaches, 658 playgrounds. The man also built seven new bridges, the Central Park Zoo, and the Lincoln Center arts complex.
How bad could he be?
Buttigieg Reading Obama’s Book Club
It would appear Mayor Pete came up with this racist roadway theory by reading the writings of Lewis Mumford – another city planner critical of Moses’s success – who spoke out against congestion. Lewis wrote: “In the 20th century, the influence of Robert Moses on the cities of America was greater than that of any other person.” How disappointing to progress. And through the pages of The Powerbroker, a book written by Robert Caro published in 1974 that Mr. Obama said “mesmerized” him.
The tome discusses the people directly affected by urban planning, claiming 500,000 people were evicted from their homes so Moses could realize his dream. Others claim Moses dragged New York into the modern age, and critics dismiss progress insisting he subjugated humans to the mercy of the automobile. New York is a congested mess – not because of racist roadways but because people live on top of each other like Legos.
The takeaway here is that Buttigieg is citing Moses as plowing through the black communities across the nation to build the highway system. Yes, Seriously, eminent domain is racist. Progress is racist, Eisenhower’s interstate system? Racist!
Heck, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), not satisfied with publicity from a pandemic, has declared “racism” a threat to public health. Is it contagious, and do we wear a mask and socially distance when in the company of pasty white folks? Public health specialist and physician Dr. Camara Phyllis Jones explains: “Race doesn’t put you at higher risk. Racism puts you at higher risk.”
Okay, Pete. I’m A Racist
How far are the Biden-Harris progressives willing to go in dividing the nation further, seeking obscure opportunities to decry racism? Buttigieg repeated his desire to equalize infrastructure to include communities of color – apparently, they don’t have roads – and inciting anger towards a dead guy, saying it “wasn’t just an act of neglect” but rather a “conscious choice.”
Of course, laird Biden was around in the 1970s and 1980s and didn’t see any issues avoiding “racial jungles.” But he’s woke now and will fix the infrastructure with a $2 trillion plan to save the day. It’s a plan that tickles the likes of Secretary Buttigieg, who dug deep to find the racial roads we use every day can be washed clean of the racists’ who made our lives easier by planning highways and city landscapes.
Perhaps it is time to just agree with the liberal left that any pale face is a racist and let them all find a new word to overuse and render invalid. Okay, just like the street I live on, I’m racist. Now what?

‘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.
