Are You Sick Of A Chinese Virus Destroying Society? Tell Democrats TikTok Has To Go!
When President Trump was in office he warned the American people about the social platform TikTok. He stated then that it was a national security threat that was directly connected to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Trump wanted to ban it from the U.S. however, in the end he ended up placing restrictions on it.
In all of his wisdom, when Biden took office he eliminated those restrictions. Biden surely had the same intel that Trump had, but his hatred for Trump combined with his apparent loyalty and ties to China overruled the one functioning brain cell he has. His narcissism once again has placed the American people in jeopardy.
In November of last year Mark Warner, Senator from Virginia and the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee admitted that Trump was correct.
“I think Trump was right, I mean TikTok is an enormous threat. It is a massive collector of information, often times of our children. They can visualize even down to your keystrokes. So if you’re a parent and you have a kid on TikTok, I would be very, very, concerned. All of that data that your child is inputting and receiving is being stored somewhere in Beijing.”
“The second problem is that TikTok in a sense is a broadcasting network, and if the Chinese Communist Party and TikTok, at the end of the day, has to be reliant on the communist party. China law states that.”
The parent company of TikTok is ByteDance, which is connected to the Chinese Communist Party.
TikTok is essentially a form of spyware that collects massive amounts of data from anyone using it.
Warner conceded that Trump’s warnings should have been heeded.
“As painful as it is for me to say, if Donald Trump was right and we could have taken action then, that would have been a heck of a lot easier than trying to take action in November of 2022. The sooner we bite the bullet the better.”
Warner then shared that the Justice Department is working on a solution, but admitted the effort is a “huge mountain to climb.”
So Far 32 states have taken action to restrict TikTok on state-issued devices, with nine of those states also banning additional apps. At least four states have proposed similar bans.
Still, that isn’t good enough. According to Human Events, a conservative political news and analysis website, over 30 countries have banned TikTok over security concerns.
Apparently, in spite of the national security threat that TikTok poses, Democrats once again are putting their interests first, concerned that banning it would cost them young voters.
One voter, a 19-year-old Harvard freshman, Aidan Kohn-Murphy runs a political non-profit called Gen Z for change. According to Kohn-Murphy:
“I’m not defending TikTok as a company, I’m defending my entire generation. If they went ahead with banning TikTok, it would feel like a slap in the face to a lot of young Americans. Democrats don’t understand the political consequences this would have.”
It’s one thing for a naïve 19-year-old to only care about something he and his friends like without understanding the full national security ramifications. However, it is quite another thing for a Democratic Representative of New York to sound even more lost.
At a rally to support TikTok, Jamaal Brown, played to the crowd asking:
“Why the hysteria and the panic and the targeting of TikTok? It poses about the same threat that companies like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter pose.”
“He then smugly added: “Republicans ain’t got no swag, that’s why they want to ban TikTok.”
Democrats have no boundaries when it comes to seeking power. They will use any ploy to either gain it or keep it. In this case, they are using the ignorance and inexperience of youth to shield the truth from them. All the while, once again playing into China’s communist hands.
