Socialism pays! Well, supporting socialism as an internet sensation pays. The very capitalistic principle of making money with one’s talents pays off for some, including Nicole Sanchez, better known as “Neekolul.”
The superfan of Democratic Socialists Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hit the public eye last year with a viral video of her lip-syncing to “OK Boomer” while wearing a Bernie Sanders cutoff shirt. That success translated into an avid fanbase that “simps” for her constantly. The TikTok star has translated that fanbase into a nice little fortune and recently purchased a brand new BMW as well as a $2 million apartment.

According to The Blaze, many among the radical left aren’t impressed:
A hugely popular influencer who often promoted democratic-socialist messaging has been branded as a “hypocrite” after bragging about her new $2 million apartment and fancy new BMW.
Last March, Neekolul posted another “OK Boomer” video, this time promoting another democratic-socialist politician — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). In this TikTok video, Sanchez is wearing a $58 sweatshirt that reads: “TAX THE RICH.” The pricey shirt is sold by Ocasio-Cortez’s merchandise shop that completely embraces capitalism.

Last week, Sanchez bragged about her new $2 million apartment. Neekolul gave her hundreds of thousands of social media followers a 10-minute virtual tour of her swanky new abode, complete with smart “Martha Stewart”-style kitchen, “East Wing” gaming room, master bedroom with “180-degree” views of the city skyline, and a walk-in closet.
Last month, Sanchez posed with a brand new convertible BMW. Fox Business estimates Nicole Sanchez has a net worth of between $1 to $5 million.

Online commenters quickly branded Sanchez as a “hypocrite,” and told her to “pay more taxes.”
Sanchez responded to the criticism by saying that “tax the rich” only applies to “like billionaires.”
As with so many “socialists” who are successful because of their advocacy for Marxist principles, Sanchez didn’t run to the IRS to hand over most of her money for redistribution. She didn’t build a homeless shelter or take a food truck down to the border for recently trafficked migrants. She didn’t even fix the failing roof for AOC’s “Abuela” even though Matt Walsh tried to do just that.
Invariably, when “socialists” get money, they spend it on themselves.
Marxism is popular with those who have very little and those who have so much they feel like it can’t be taken away. For the rest of us, it’s just an idea that is constantly proven idiotic yet just as constantly embraced by idiots.
‘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 pacing to be short by about $3700 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.
