Anti-liberty leftists always love to parrot the lie that democracy is under siege from the pro-liberty right. This is why they have continuously spewed the propaganda from the mostly peaceful Jan 6th protest while excusing months of rioting and looting from the fascists of ‘Antifa’.
They’re taking one short 3 – 4 hour event from over 4 months ago at this point as justification for the suppression of civil rights. The fact is the authoritarian socialists of the anti-liberty left have never met a Constitutional amendment they didn’t want to shred.
The anti-liberty left’s latest assault on freedom
The past few months have seen an ongoing stream of new programs or proposed laws from the authoritarian socialists that constitute an assault on freedom across the board, everything from book bannings and censorship to attacks against just about every part of the Bill of Rights. Those who are versed in the history of leftist tyranny were not surprised by these turn of events, only that many have not noticed them taking place.
The site El American has taken note that A Major Political Party is Calling to Censor Their Opponents:
The Democratic Party calls for censorship of its political opponents. It made this clear through a tweet, where it celebrated the fact that former Republican President Donald Trump cannot access his Facebook account.
“Retweet if you agree: Facebook permanently blocked Trump,” said @TheDemocrats, the official Twitter account of the Democratic National Committee.
The reactions did not take long in coming as hundreds of Americans criticized that the ruling party celebrates censorship and even went so far as to compare it to regimes like those of China, Russia, and Iran.
“Authoritarianism through proxy. I would say that I’m shocked but I would be lying,” another user noted.
It would be one thing if this were an isolated incident. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism. We need to take notice.
These ‘abuses and usurpations’ have been taking place for months now. We are way beyond their exploitation of their version of the ‘Reichstag fire’ in all of this. That was over 4 months ago and one mostly peaceful protest. Is that all they have to excuse their suppression of our civil rights?
Question to the anti-liberty left: How can ‘Democracy’ survive when freedom is suppressed?
We’re using the term democracy for several reasons, because it denotes rule by the people and that leftists will invariably parrot that they are ‘democratic’ socialists instead of plain old authoritarian socialists.
The problem for them is that the people cannot rule if they cannot speak or be properly informed on the issues. This is why the founding fathers thought it vitally important to have the 1st amendment to the Constitution.
For the authoritarians of the anti-liberty left, this is a feature and not a bug. They can pretend all they want to in favor of freedom and free speech while using the expedient of ‘hate speech’ to silence the opposition.
In the same regard, they can bolt on that meaningless ‘democratic’ adjective onto their favored authoritarian socialist ideology as a dodge whenever someone points out its societal slavery is based on force. Free speech exists to counteract lies, the left’s ideology is based on lies, therefore it cannot abide free speech.
‘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, Conservative Playbook, 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, CP, 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.
