A Tennessee hotel posted a sign that went out of its way to degrade patrons who, for whatever reason, would prefer not to wear a face mask. The location of the Moxy Hotel is currently not under a mask mandate, which means the private business itself is the only enforcer of such requirements for entry or patronage.
This is fine; as conservatives, we support the rights of private businesses to make whatever reasonable rules they want that are within the boundaries of the law. If a business wants to require masks for entry even if government removes such mandates, so be it. However, we do take exception to the way in which this particular business decided to announce their restrictions. The sign wasn’t just stating a policy. It was intended to insult those who would oppose their requirement.
- “Yes, masks are still required!”
- “…but the county mandate has expired.*WE DON’T CARE *
- “…but I’ve already had COVID” *WE DON’T CARE*
- “…but Rona is a hoax” *WE DON’T CARE*
- “…but I’m vaccinated” *WE DON’T CARE*
- IF YOU’RE NOT CONSUMING, YOU’RE MASKING!
One insult in particular, “…but Rona is a hoax,” is a clear embodiment of contempt for those who are skeptical of the narrative surrounding Covid-19. The science backs up this skepticism, of course, as the recovery rate for those infected is higher than the recovery rate for the flu for those under the age of 30. Even those between 30-60 have high recovery rates. It isn’t until the higher age groups that the disease seems to have a significant enough toll to warrant such mass hysteria.

According to BizPacReview:
A sign posted by chic Chattanooga, Tenn. hotel, Moxy, is drawing viral negative reactions online for appearing to demand that all guests wear masks at all times unless they are eating and drinking, no questions asked, and no exceptions – even for people who are vaccinated and despite the expiration of a county mask mandate.
A photo of the sign was posted on Twitter by DC Patriot contributor Matt Couch, who wrote: “Guess who shouldn’t get your business…. Get Woke Go Broke Geniuses like this.”
The hotel bills itself one that is “stylishly chic…that focuses on the less, while offering so much more,” according to an online description. It also appears to cater to younger crowds.
“Made for the young and young at heart, our check-in experience is one of a kind,” the description says. But it was the intolerant tone of the sign that drew the ire of social media users.

“If your service is great, “I don’t care”
If your price is cheaper, “I don’t care”
If the location is good, “I don’t care”
You force me to wear a mask, you won’t get my money!” – John Bryant

The Moxy Hotel didn’t just a policy. They proudly displayed it as an unambiguous insult against those who have concerns about face masks or who are relieved by the lifted face mask mandates in the area. They don’t deserve our business.
‘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 on track to be short by about $4100 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.
