With a number of policies that are top of the agenda in the election campaign going against social conservative values—such as all major party leadership including the Conservatives declaring strong pro-abortion stances—a major organizer of social conservative voters says the campaign so far has been disappointing.
Article by Isaac Teo from our news partners at The Epoch Times.
“That has really taken the wind out of the sails of a lot of social conservatives,” Jack Fonseca, spokesperson of Campaign Life Coalition, told The Epoch Times.
Fonseca says many social conservative policies including some that concern religious freedom and free speech have been successfully passed at the Conservative Party convention over the years, but they haven’t been endorsed by the party leadership.
“We’ve managed to pass a policy that condemns sex-selective abortions. We’ve passed a policy that explicitly condemns all forms of euthanasia and assisted suicide,” he said. “We’ve helped to pass policies that defend conscience rights for health professionals to not have to perform or refer for abortions or euthanasia or any other procedure that violates their moral conscience.”
But Conservative Party leader Erin O’Toole has embraced many non-social conservative causes, he says, including voting against the anti-sex-selective bill introduced by his caucus member Cathay Wagantall that would make it a criminal offence for a medical practitioner to perform a sex-selective abortion.
“Many of our supporters are feeling like ‘Well, I don’t know if I should vote. I don’t know if I should just give up on politics,’” Fonseca said. “That’s very disappointing because we’ve come so far, we’ve come so very close, and we can’t stop now.”
Other concerns that are top of mind among social conservatives include the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns, “liberty destroying” vaccination passports, and the current government’s “globalist agenda,” he said.
Fonseca said his message to social conservative voters is to not lose hope and to focus on getting pro-life candidates from any political stripe elected, while looking ahead to future party conventions and leadership elections to change the party leadership.
“As a pro-life, pro-family organization, Campaign Life Coalition is asking social conservatives right across the country to vote for their local pro-life candidate,” he said.
“As an organization, we are non-partisan in that we endorse pro-life candidates from any party. There are many Conservative pro-life candidates that we are endorsing. There are many PPC [People’s Party of Canada] candidates, Christian Heritage Party candidates, and also a number of independents, including those that will be associated with Derek Sloan.”
Sloan announced the creation of his True North Party just ahead of the election call, but since his proposed party wasn’t approved by Elections Canada by the time the writ was dropped, he can’t formally run candidates in this election.
However, the former Conservative MP says he and his supporters will arrange to have some candidates run as independents, who will then join his party if they are elected once True North is formally approved.
Fonseca said in his view, the best outcome would be the defeat of the current government and to have a maximum number of pro-life and pro-family candidates, including Sloan, winning seats so social conservative voters can continue to stand up for the values they believe in.
Looking to the future, he hopes Sloan can remain an MP and go on to grow his new party, and also that more pro-life PPC candidates will be elected as well.
“I think that would be the ideal situation, so that if the Conservatives hold power, there are MPs in other parties who are truly conservative that can keep them honest and help bring them back to their roots … to drag the Conservative Party to the right again.”
The Dangers of Speaking the Truth Diminish If We Work Together
It’s becoming harder and harder for patriots to ignore the deep suppression of truth that’s happening in America today.
In all of my years in journalism, I have never received as many threats or been attacked by big companies like Google and Facebook as I have in 2021. I’d say that ever since we started covering widespread voter fraud, government-endorsed Pandemic Panic Theater, vaccine cover-ups, Critical Race Theory, and the various Neo-Marxist and Satanic agendas at play, I’ve been targeted more in months than the entirety of my life prior.
Speaking the truth is getting harder with so much censorship and suppression rampant. Prior to 2020, I was not a “conspiracy theorist” or an “anti-vaxxer,” but if there’s one thing the onslaught of exposed lies have taught us in the last 18 months, it’s that we cannot take what we’re told by the “arbiters of truth” at face value. There’s an agenda behind every message, a narrative driving every story, and a series of gigantic cover-ups designed to keep the masses in the dark.
This is why we’re building a network of news outlets that are willing to go against the narrative and expose the truth. We need help. We’re establishing strong partnerships with like-minded news outlets and courageous journalists. Even as Big Tech suppresses us, the honest messages they’re trying to quash are finding their way to the eyes and ears of patriots across the nation. With the help of new content partners like The Epoch Times and The Liberty Daily, we’re starting to see a real impact.
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
Some of our content is spread across all of these 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.
I’ve said much of this before. From time to time I reframe this request for assistance by taking the most relevant message of the day and adjusting the story accordingly. We’ve discussed this network in previous articles. Now, it’s time to talk about help. First and foremost, we need financial assistance detailed below. But we could also use more writers who are willing to volunteer their thoughts for the sake of spreading the message. Those who are interested should contact me directly.
As far as money, we’re looking better than we have in the recent past, but we are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $2200-$7800 per month. May, 2021, for example, was amazing and we almost broke even. June, revenue was sluggish at best and we had to make up a big difference out of our pockets. But we’re not just trying to get out of the red. If and when we start getting enough contributions to expand, we will do just that. Very few get into journalism to try to get rich and we’re definitely not among those who do. Our success is driven by spreading the truth, profitable or not.
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
Time is short. 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 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,
