Last week, Oregon became the first state to mandate businesses to only allow those who show proof of Covid vaccination to allow their customers to not wear a face mask. It’s a clear indicator of a two-tier society forming in leftist regions of the country, as Democrat Naomi Wolf noted in a video she released.
“Hi, this is Naomi Wolf from DailyClout and the Five Freedom’s Campaign,” she began. “I’m so sad to be reporting that I’m here in the beautiful state of Oregon and Oregon became the first state in the union to mandate vaccine passports as a condition for entering a business or house of worship without a mask.”
Oregon, with its power base in far-left Portland, has been run by Democrats for a while. The state has pushed further and further to the left, trying to eclipse neighbors Washington and California for the mantle of the west coast’s most radical state. They beat their competitors to the punch on this one by granting not only authoritarian control but obligating it upon businesses and churches.
“On the 19th of May, 2021, just a couple of days ago, the Oregon Health Authority, which is turning into a fascist agency, issued a mandate saying that businesses have an obligation,” she said. “If they’re going to allow people in without a mask, to allow in people who show a vaccine confirmation, and to not allow people in without a mask if they cannot or will not show confirmation of vaccination. And this is businesses, it’s houses of worship, it’s all across the state.”
This won’t just force many businesses to become tyrants. It will create an opportunity for unhinged customers to report businesses who are not following the state’s mandate. Freedom-loving business owners will be forced to make a choice: Execute the state’s mandates or risk being taken down.
“So, they’re putting an obligation on businesses to police their customers and create a two-tier society exactly like Jim Crow laws,” she continued. “I don’t mean to belittle the horrible history of Jim Crow laws, but it’s literally this kind of legislation, some people are better than other people, some people are more equal than others and they get the privilege of removing their masks.”
As bad as the ACLU normally is in their “woke” form of social justice, they are on the right side of this particular issue, as Wolf explained.
“The ACLU wrote an op-ed saying this is the beginning of a two-tier society,” Wolf said. “And I can tell you that I was in Newport, Oregon, just a couple of days ago and there was already a sign outside of a touristy curio shop saying ‘if you’re going to take your mask off inside you need to show proof of vaccination.'”
The ironic part is many of those who have already received the vaccine continue to wear masks while many who have not been vaccinated haven’t been wearing masks except when required. The end result is a whole lot of people who are still wearing face masks.
“I can tell you that this mandate has created already a fascistic atmosphere in Oregon,” Wolf concluded. “People are policing people in stores to make sure they’re six feet apart. If your mask slips you’re told to move it up over your face. But this is a dark day in history, the first vaccine passports in the United States of America, Oregon, May 19, 2021.”

This isn’t a left vs right issue, per se. Naomi Wolf is a progressive icon who understands the dangers of draconian mandates like Oregon’s. This is a fight between those who value freedom and those who prefer to live in fear.
‘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 pacing to be short by about $3700 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.
