Well, the Cultural Marxists at Black Lives Matter got their wish. At least, they got what was supposed to be their wish. We’ll see shortly if it’s enough to prevent the wanton destruction of cities across the nation as Derek Chauvin, the former police officer whose knee was held near the neck of George Floyd for nine minutes before he died, was found guilty on all counts.
The verdict came the day after the jury began deliberating.
All of this follows over a week of rioting and looting in Minneapolis and other cities. It also follows calls by numerous major Democratic figures, including Representative Maxine Waters and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, for Chauvin to essentially be turned into an example. Will this verdict bring and end to the rioting? No.
Eric Matheny asked, “What’s the reason for rioting if the verdict is a guilty across the board?”

According to The Gateway Pundit:
Police Officer Derek Chauvin pleaded not guilty to charges of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
On Monday Judge Peter Cahill told defense attorney Eric Nelson that Rep. Maxine Waters’s interference on the case could be grounds for a retrial. On Tuesday Judge Cahill read the verdict.
Reactions on Twitter from conservatives have ranged from angry to dumbfounded.
Cassandra Fairbanks asked a fair question, “Holy s–t. Did the jurors not watch the same trial I did?!!”

Laverne Spicer believes the verdict was racist. “#DerekChauvin guilty verdict makes me think maybe there is something to these systemic racism charges, but not the way we think.”

National File reported:
Floyd’s girlfriend, Courtney Ross, also revealed that she thought she would die after taking pills with Floyd, and that their drug dealer was in the car with them at the time of his arrest. A medical expert further testified that Floyd’s death was caused by a combination of a preexisting heart condition, the inhuman amount of fentanyl and methamphetamine in his system, and exposure to carbon monoxide in the form of car exhaust from a nearby squad car.
The guilty verdict would come as no surprise to many, with multiple instances of seeming intimidation against the jury from activists and elected officials. “If George Floyd’s murderer is not sentenced, just know that all hell is gonna break loose,” warned Black Lives Matter activist Maya Echols. “Don’t be surprised when buildings are on fire. Just sayin’.” Echols later deleted the video after backlash.
“This is guilty for murder. I don’t know whether it’s third degree, but as far as I’m concerned it’s first degree murder,” said Representative Maxine Waters last weekend. She added that, should Chauvin not be convicted for first degree murder, then “we gotta stay on the streets, we gotta get more active, we got to get more confrontational, we got to make sure they know we mean business.” Judge Peter Cahill, who presided over the case, described Waters’s comments as “abhorrent,” suggesting that they could be used as evidence in any appeal case by Chauvin.
Things are going to get ugly across America. The left will be perpetually angry and violent regardless of the situation, but now the right has a reason to match that anger. Perhaps it was always going to be this way.
This story is developing.
‘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.
