No, Clarence Thomas, the answer to Big Tech censorship is not government regulations

The 2020 Election showed us just how much power Big Tech and Social Media have. Not only can they use their algorithms to divide our nation into echo chambers and limit what news… I mean, propaganda, we see, but they also have the ability to censor and de-platform anybody who does not hold to the mainstream narrative as put forth by the Democrat Party.

When we talk about rigging the 2020 Election, a huge contributing factor was the disinformation and propaganda pushed and promoted by companies like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Obviously, the natural result is to want to make sure that never happens again and the easiest solution in many people’s minds is to have the government step in and establish regulations that restrict their ability to fix any future elections.

This is exactly what Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is referring to when he posed the idea of having government regulations established and forced on these Silicon Valley tech companies. The problem is that this is exactly what Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey want. During their Senate hearings last year, they made it clear that they welcomed government oversight and regulation into their industry. Why would they want this?

Government regulations consistently are a hardship only on small startups and mom-and-pop shops. We saw this played out for all to see with the extreme restrictions and regulations in California in response to the COVID-19 “pandemic.” Countless small businesses closed permanently due to the extreme measures being taken. Only the big companies that could absorb the insane new costs in doing business could continue to stay open. Essentially, it eliminated the competition for these big corporations.

The same thing will happen in the tech world if the government steps in. New regulations will restrict the ability for startups to innovate and come up with free market solutions to the censorship of Google, Amazon, Facebook and Twitter.

The reason we find ourselves in the mess that we are in today is not because of a lack of rules and regulations from the government, but because conservatives refused to innovate and create superior alternatives to Silicon Valley. Instead, we relied on them to the point where we had no other options than these Leftist Social Justice Warrior companies. Then they pulled the rug out from under us during the 2020 Election and everyone acts shocked that this happened.

Moving forward, we must innovate. We must protect ourselves and the freedom that has made America great for the past few centuries. Stop relying on Leftist companies. Spend your time and money supporting pro-America and Conservative companies. If there’s not a company worthy of your support, maybe it’s time to start one. That’s the American way.

‘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.

American Conservative Movement

Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 11,000+ patriots with us in a very short time.
