Everywhere you turn, everyone is talking about disinformation. On the new platform Clubhouse, entire rooms are dedicated to figuring out how to combat the sinister disinformation that is threatening the very fabric of our society.
According to the Left, it was disinformation that led to the fiasco that occurred on January 6th at the Capitol Building. Now, to be clear, they’ve redefined the world “disinformation” to mean whatever doesn’t fit their narrative. They begin with the presupposition that they are correct, and then label anything that goes against their propaganda as “fake news” or “disinformation.”
The same thing can be applied to virtually every aspect of COVID-19. Think about it, the Left says that it’s disinformation whenever we cite the fact that it came from Wuhan, China or that face masks are useless… or even that there are serious side effects with the COVID-19 vaccines. That is all considered “false information”… despite the fact each of these are factually accurate.
Clearly, there’s a danger in labeling true statements and disinformation. Doing so discredits the claim before anyone can even “fact check” to see whether it is true or not. The Left has mastered the art of controlling the narrative, discrediting all opposing thought as either racist or disinformation. Only the official narrative from the Democrat Party is considered to be truth.
Now, let’s take a look at actual disinformation… actual false statements. Should we ban all disinformation from American society? Should Twitter censor false information? What do we do with actual cases of disinformation?
I would make the case that it is actually dangerous to ban “disinformation.” Here’s why: Who decides what is true or false? Whoever is in power at that time. Throughout history we’ve seen what happens if you give centralized control of the information that people consume… it is hijacked and manipulated so that that those in power retain indefinite control. Take a look at the nation of China today… the CCP is the arbiter or truth in their nation, which gives them complete control over the populous.
We cannot allow this to happen in the United States of America. Our Founding Fathers were extremely clear not only in the concept of Free Speech, but also Freedom of the Press. This means that the government cannot restrict or “fact check” people from putting forth what they believe is truth. The exception to this is knowingly slandering someone… or, in other words, saying something that you know is false in order to cause harm to someone else.
If we shutdown “disinformation,” we’ll give centralized control of the narrative to the Federal Government and the Elitist Corporations who run this country. Is that really the world that we want to live in? This will make it to where all we get is propaganda. Don’t believe me? Just turn on any of the mainstream media outlets and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. All the networks are saying the exact same thing, over and over again. It’s essentially state-run media.
Now is the time to support independent news sources, such as NOQ Report, The GateKeepers and Freedom First Network. We producing shows and writing articles to report on the actual news and provide expert commentary to help you understand what is actually going on. We’ve been targeted for taking this stand, being deplatformed from companies such as YouTube, Spotify and Transistor.
Our mission must continue, however, finding new ways to bypass the restrictions put in place by these Big Leftist Corporations. It takes innovation and constant brainstorming, always trying to be a step ahead of the censors. This is a whole new world we find ourselves in, but if we want to save America and reinstate Freedom for All, the battle over the soul and minds of the people is the fight we must win.
‘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.
