Senator Tim Scott, the only black Republican who is currently serving as a U.S. senator, is coming under fire from the left for leading the fight against the minimum wage hike – and when an MSNBC host criticized him for his conservative views and called him a “token,” he declared that the focus on being “woke” is just as harmful as white supremacy.
Article by Cassie B. from Natural News.
The term “woke” was originally used to denote an awareness of certain social and racial injustices, but its use is now typically tied to political correctness and the cancel culture. We’ve seen a slew of popular products, TV shows, and ad campaigns get the ax after complaints from the “woke” crowd in recent months, even if their potential to offend is quite weak.
While appearing on Fox News Primetime, Sen. Scott told host Trey Gowdy: “Woke supremacy is as bad as white supremacy. We need to take that seriously.” He also encouraged people to read a bible verse about loving their enemies.
Sen. Scott’s comments came as Gowdy took MSNBC host Joy Reid to task for her attacks on Scott because of his support for conservative policies. Reid made the insulting suggestion that Scott only attended a press conference opposing increasing the minimum wage to create what she called a “patina of diversity.”
Gowdy, a former Republican congressman from South Carolina, said: “Tim Scott is too good a man to respond to this. I am not.” He added that Scott was chosen to work on tax reform legislation because he was an expert on the matter, not because he happens to be black.
He added that “when she calls a United States Senator who’s a subject matter expert a prop, a token, or a superficial covering, that’s personal and that’s wrong and she should be held to account.”
Gowdy also pointed out that the fact that Reid sees a black man as a prop says more about her than it does about Scott. Reid has a history of criticizing black conservatives for their positions and for being Republicans.

Even liberal hero Obama has issues with woke attitude
The danger Scott is likely referring to with his metaphor is the idea that many people who self-identify as being “woke” feel like they are somehow superior to everyone else and deserve to be in charge of society – and they are using this exaggerated “outrage” to stifle conservative voices and ensure that only liberal viewpoints dominate social media and popular culture.
Even President Obama took issue with the idea of woke supremacy, saying in a 2019 interview: “[There is] this idea of purity and you’re never compromised, and you’re always politically ‘woke’ and all that stuff. You should get over that quickly. The world is messy. There are ambiguities. People who do really good stuff have flaws.”
Obama is a hero to much of the “woke” crowd, but they clearly aren’t getting the message. He said that the danger of being overly judgmental of people is rampant on college campuses and “accelerated by social media.”
He added that just being “woke” is not enough to effect change, stating: “There is this sense sometimes, of the way of me making change is to be as judgmental as possible about other people and that’s enough. Like, if I tweet or hashtag about how you didn’t do something right or use the wrong verb, then I can sit back and feel pretty good about myself because ‘Man, you see how woke I was? I called you out.’”
He pointed out that this type of behavior is not activism and does not spur change.
Once again, Reid’s comments remind us that it’s the left that is truly racist here. The idea that blacks can only adopt liberal viewpoints is an inherently racist generalization, but then again, what do we expect from the same party that supports abortion, which murders millions of black babies?

Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder.

Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:

- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, 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 and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
