America is a deeply divided nation and nothing illustrates the two opposing views quite so well as this exchange between Jemar Tisby and Tom Ascol. Jemar Tisby is a woke figure promoting the Social Justice Gospel in largely religious contexts. In stark contrast, Tom Ascol, of Founders Ministry, is one of the leading voices opposing the infiltration of the Social Justice Gospel in the Southern Baptist Convention. With the events surrounding Black Lives Matter, the two worldviews could not be more different.
In case you weren’t sure, this is the Civil Rights movement of our time. It is happening right now. How you are responding in this moments is exactly how you would have responded during the movement of the 1950s and 60s. #ColorofCompromise

Jemar Tisby’s comparison to the Civil Rights Movement is oft one we’ve heard before. On numerous occasions has this historical analogy been misapplied to the same degree as the Holocaust or 1930’s Germany. The homosexual/ transvestite agenda views itself as a civil rights movement, as do feminists, illegal immigration and climate activists. This is an attempt to play to Obama’s famous fallacy of “the right side of history.”
Tom Ascol responds with a different historical analogy.
In case you weren’t sure, this is the Bolshevik Revolution of our time. It is happening right now. How you are responding in this moment is exactly how you would have responded in 1917 Russia. [I fixed it]#anarchyknowsnocolor https://t.co/8rQQbHuwAv

Tom Ascol compares the events that Jemar Tisby observes to the Bolshevik Revolution, the revolution that finished the Russian Empire, over one hundred years ago. And Tom Ascol is certainly not alone in this comparison. In my last video, I was not shy about calling the violence in our streets communist insurrections. And I do not believe you should be shy about that either. Black Lives Matter is a vehemently Marxist movement with very innocuous branding. But nonetheless, we are seeing the fruits of Marxism play out. The logical conclusion to believing in systemic racism is to overthrow the current systems.
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
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 need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
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. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. 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.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
