There is little doubt in the minds of many that the jury in the Derek Chauvin trial was intimidated. And there is a multitude of evidence to affirm these concerns. From recent rioting to the high profile nature of the case. Even elected officials from the local level to the President have weighed in on the jury’s decision with the expectation of a guilty verdict. The jury was well aware that an acquittal would be threatening to their communities and lives, and perhaps also aware that no one would offer them protection in the state of Minnesota.
Nonetheless, jury duty is a serious undertaking as a citizen. The Founding Fathers believed that our nation should have courts of justice, and that juries could nullify indictments, in instances of government overreach. However the verdict rendered unto Derek Chauvin was not one of justice. It was a social justice verdict.
Social Justice is a Marxist term that is distinct from actual justice. In Marxism we have a power dynamic between the bourgeoise and the proletariat classes. In Cultural Marxism this dynamic is applied to various demographics and there is always an oppressor and a victim. Within Critical Race Theory, a product of Cultural Marxism, black people are systemically oppressed by the white man. Social Justice is where actions are undergone to rectify these perceived power dynamics.
For instance, reparations are a prominent example of the Social Justice that Critical Race Theorists ask for. This policy is far removed from actual justice as it steals from those who did not do wrong to give to those who were not actually wronged.
Within the context of Derek Chauvin, by no means was he completely innocent. But there was no evidence of intent to murder George Floyd. Yet the jury convicted him of murder with intent and murder without intent nonetheless, keenly aware of the consequences of failing to do so. Guilty on all counts may yet spare their lives, the city of Minneapolis, the livelihood of cities across America. It’s a feeble attempt to reenact The Lottery with dubious chances of success. It’s a modern day human sacrifice.
‘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 and the American Conservative Movement have 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. Both of our YouTube accounts were banned. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Medium canceled us. Apple 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 cancellation, 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, including death. One of our stories about the Johnson & Johnson “vaccine” causing blood clots was “fact-checked” and removed one day before the government hit the brakes on it. These questions and news items are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting canceled.
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 and ACM 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 $4100 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.
