Sometimes an idea comes into our heads and we think it’s fantastic. After further review, there was something pretty obvious that we completely missed in our original thinking. Such is the case for the @Pride Twitter account, operated by “very queer” podcaster Levi Chambers, regarding a meme that apparently made sense at the time.
It reads, “Sending the beautiful person below this Tweet lots of #Pride” and shows someone smiling and pushing the LGBTQ rainbow flag off a building. Now, if this sounds oddly distasteful, it’s probably because you’re familiar with the practice in Iran and other Muslim-majority countries of pushing bound homosexuals off buildings to their death.
Sending the beautiful person below this Tweet lots of #Pride.

As Twitchy noted, it looked a little like an execution. “A little.”
The official Pride account thought it would be cute for people to be able to send “pride” to the person below them in their Twitter feed. But the execution? It looked a little like an execution.
Responses on Twitter were just what one would expect.

With 100% certainty, if this exact Tweet had been sent by a conservative, they would be banned within minutes. Being sent by someone “woke” means it’s still live 10 days later.
In case it gets deleted:
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
