The Washington Post has changed the headline of an opinion piece by Fareed Zakaria suggesting Democrats should ” forget pronouns ,” after facing Twitter condemnation. “Forget Pronouns: Democrats need to become the party of building things,” was the headline of the piece posted Thursday. The “forget pronouns” was later dropped from the headline.
Zakaria shared the article on Twitter, saying “getting stuff done” is “a lot more important to most Americans than using the right pronouns.” This was in response to a New York Times poll that showed President Biden as intensely unpopular, especially among young people . Yet the backlash against Zakaria was swift. In the column, Zakaria listed of the myriad problems facing the US, from social problems to infrastructure to the economy. He then concluded: “This is not a perception problem. It is a reality problem. Democrats need to once more become the party that gets stuff done, builds things and makes government work for people. That’s a lot more important to most Americans than using the right pronouns.” That currently is the only mention of the word “pronouns” in the piece.
Twitter users wrote about the need to respect others pronouns and paying attention to the needs of transgender people, Mediaite reported . Users of the platform attacked Zakaria for tossing aside pronouns without providing evidence the gender ideology delaying progress on other issues.
Chasten Buttigieg, a teacher by trade who is married to Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg,wrote, “It is wildly inappropriate to instruct Democrats to toss aside an entire group of Americans in order to win.”
Without looking at the substance of the column, which instructed Democrats that most Americans don’t care about pronouns, and that soft issues, like pronouns, are what many Americans believe the party stands for, Buttigieg doubled down on the need to respect […]

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.
