Editor’s Note: Prior to the Tim Pool interview mentioned below, our Jeff Dornik interviewed Jason Miller and asked about the censorship on GETTR. He also received a comment from Nick Fuentes countering Miller’s response. It’s an intriguing interview in light of what has come out since then. Here’s the article by JD Heyes…
It didn’t take long for one of the newest ‘free speech’ social media platforms — GETTR — to go ‘mainstream’ by censoring important information that people need to hear but which is judged to be ‘outside what is acceptable.’
GETTR CEO Jason Miller, a former top political adviser to President Donald Trump, was asked during an appearance on the Timcast IRL podcast why some content was already being ‘moderated’ such as banning videos showing President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, banning political commentator Nick Fuentes, and the manner in which the platform decides what is “harmful,” “hateful,” and “obscene” — all while claiming to embrace “free speech.”
As reported by Reclaim the Net, host Tim Pool agreed that “GETTR clearly is going to allow more speech” than the left-wing Big Tech platforms like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, but he also had issues with a number of GETTR’s content decisions.
The outlet noted further:
The topic of the JFK assassination video being banned came up after Miller revealed that GETTR prohibits showing “the act of killing someone” and that there are no newsworthiness exceptions to this policy.
Miller explained that the policy was introduced because “after the Afghanistan airport bombing, Kabul…there were images that were posted of actual people blowing up” but said users are allowed to “show what the carnage is afterwards.”
When Miller was pressed on whether one of history’s most famous videos, the assassination of JFK, would be allowed on GETTR, he confirmed that if it contains “the moment of the bullet entering him,” it wouldn’t be allowed.
This video, which was originally taken with an 8mm film camera by Abraham Zapruder as JFK’s motorcade passed him in Dallas on the day of his assassination, has been widely seen for decades, so despite Miller’s explanation, it makes no sense to ban it at this point.
Also, as Reclaim the Net reported, GETTR’s ban contrasts with that of YouTube and Twitter, both of which currently allow the video to be played on their platforms and also offer newsworthiness exceptions to other violent content.
As such, Pool pushed back on Miller, in particular over the ban of JFK’s assassination video, arguing that in that and other instances, “people need to see the newsworthiness” of even violent acts and that “if you restrict that, people won’t believe it.”
Pool also broached the issue of Fuentes being barred from the alternative platform for allegedly asking a question about whether there were any other “groypers” that are on the platform. The podcast host accused Miller and GETTR of banning Fuentes without fully understanding what groypers really are — that is, a reference to the Pepe the Frog meme but which also refers to Fuentes’ followers.
Critics say that Fuentes and his followers are all white nationalists, though Fuentes and supporters have denied those accusations.
Miller responded that Fuentes was kicked off GETTR because the platform interpreted his post “as recruiting people who are in the white nationalist space.”
After he was pressed on the issue, Miller first suggested that Fuentes had “self-identified” as a white nationalist, but Poll responded and said that the podcast chat was filled with people who denied that Fuentes ever made such a claim. That left Miller to admit that he had actually not spent a great deal of time researching the ‘groyper’ community but that he has seen “a number of writings and things where that’s how the group has been defined.”
Moving on, Pool asked whether GETTR banned Fuentes because “the media has called them [groypers] white nationalists,” with Miller replying that it’s not just the media that has made the alleged connection but there are “many people who have self ID’d as being part of that group or part of that ideology.”
“Bro, I don’t think you’ve got an argument here man, this sounds like complete bulls**t,” Pool said. “I don’t think you know anything about this group…I don’t either.”
Miller defended the platform’s speech policies by arguing that “for most countries, especially in the US, your free speech rights…extend up until the point where they infringe on someone else’s rights” and that there “have to be some standards in place to make sure that people don’t think it’s a threatening or potentially illegal environment.”

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 Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
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:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- ZStack: Improve your immune system with the Z-Stack protocol or rejuvenate your body from vaccines or shedding with Z-DTox by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them JD sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- 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.
Thank you and God Bless,
