Lost in the turmoil over Big Tech’s censorship of a NY Post story that exposed Hunter Biden and Joe Biden’s dealings with Burisma and Ukraine is the fact that many Republican lawmakers who claim to stand up for freedom are standing by and doing nothing. Fox News host Tucker Carlson isn’t sitting around playing partisan politics, though.
On his show Wednesday night, he and guest Saagar Enjeti described the censorship as in-kind donations by companies like Facebook and Twitter to the Democratic Party to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars. They concluded that things were bad enough under President Obama, but if Joe Biden is elected, things will get 10, 15, or even 20 times worse.
That’s when Carlson went after the GOP itself. It’s not the whole GOP, just those who are not standing against this clear violation of our rights through Big Tech censorship. These are companies protected under Section 230, which means they are supposed to be “platforms.” But they continuously act like content producers who should not carry the protections they enjoy. Republican lawmakers who are not fighting against this are either ignorant, complicit, or both, and Carlson plans on calling them out in the near future.
Tucker Carlson & @esaagar Discuss The Future Of Big Tech Censorship

Carlson wasn’t the only one to point a finger at Republicans. The First’s Jesse Kelly echoed the sentiment.
Today, the GOP finally all realized just how big of a problem Leftist control of Big Tech is for America. Tomorrow, when presented with possible solutions, the GOP won’t do a single thing to stop them.
The GOP is comfortable talking. It’s the doing they find impossible.

We can blame Democrats for encouraging the Big Tech censorship that has been rampant for the last four years, but we must also call out the GOP lawmakers who allowed it to happen. Some are fighting for us. Many are not.

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.
