Attention parents: If your children are on TikTok, make them delete it immediately.
Unless you’re comfortable with Chinese spyware filling your house, recording each and every word said, which may well be very dangerous in the future.
TikTok, which is a mere subsidiary of Chinese giant ByteDance, masquerades as a social media platform when in reality it is little more than a weapon of mass destruction created to serve none other than the almighty Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which is directly responsible for the ongoing bloodshed and torment in Ukraine, given how much they’re openly backing Putin’s invasion.
Of course, the same CCP is also eyeing Taiwan in a bid to control the world’s semiconductor industry, and it is no doubt thrilled with Putin’s horrific actions, given that they distract from an even more unshakeable horror unfolding on the Pacific front: a steady Chinese takeover of what’s left of freedom in the east, and no doubt barreling straight towards the removal of freedom in the West.
Which is precisely why Musk, as succinctly and brilliantly as always, made a rather compelling observation on Twitter.
“Is TikTok destroying civilization? Some people think so,” Musk mused.
By “some people,” Musk is referring to virtually anyone who values freedom, not to mention human life, which would include multiple conservatives, or frankly any decent human being.
Senator Ted Cruz blasted the massive Chinese “social media” (i.e., spyware) company for what it really is, namely that it is “a Trojan horse the Chinese Communist Party can use to influence what Americans see, hear, and ultimately think.”
If you thought Facebook was bad (and it is), TikTok and the CCP make Zuckerberg look like an amateur.
In fact, the security risks of TikTok are so grave that the army has banned personnel from using it, as reported by Forbes journalist Enrique Dans:
“The US armed forces have forbidden personnel from using it and describes it as a threat to cybersecurity. Israeli cybersecurity company Check Point has investigated it and concludes it has backdoors and major vulnerabilities, as well as overall security issues.”
Which is precisely why America First Trump, who is deeply missed with each passing day, issued an executive order banning the terrible company from American territory. With full justification, as explained by former White House Spokesman Judd Deere:
“The Administration is committed to protecting the American people from all cyber related threats to critical infrastructure, public health and safety, and our economic and national security.”
Imagine that. An administration that actually cares about national security.
If only Americans could recapture such halcyon days again.
ByteDance issued an absurd statement in response, after threatening to sue the Trump administration for daring to protect sovereign interests.
“We are shocked by the recent Executive Order, which was issued without any due process. The text of the decision makes it plain that there has been a reliance on unnamed ‘reports’ with no citations, fears that the app ‘may be’ used for misinformation campaigns with no substantiation of such fears, and concerns about the collection of data that is industry standard for thousands of mobile apps around the world,” the company whined.
Due process? Are they kidding?
The same due process they extended to multiple innocent Chinese executed in Tiananmen Square? Widely acknowledged as a complete massacre?
Furthermore, considering China has openly banned pretty much every American tech company from its shores, the despicable CCP has serious you-know-what whining about due process for their own national security-endangering tech platforms.
Tragically, the questionable election of 2020 resulted in even more devastation from a national security standpoint, considering that Biden has not only rescinded Trump’s executive order regarding both TikTok and WeChat, but he also actually engages with TikTok for a variety of nefarious purposes.
As reported by Washington Post journalist Taylor Lorenz, the Biden administration apparently thinks it’s a great idea to embolden the Beijing-based platform:
“30 top TikTok stars gathered on a Zoom call to receive key information about the war unfolding in Ukraine. National Security Council staffers and White House press secretary Jen Psaki briefed the influencers about the United States’ strategic goals in the region and answered questions on distributing aid to Ukrainians, working with NATO and how the United States would react to a Russian use of nuclear weapons.”
Wow. Just … wow.
Great move, Biden. Does he answer to China or the United States?
Needless to say, Trump has since been vindicated for his executive order given the unfortunate leak of audio that reveals precisely what he has been saying all along: TikTok has absolutely been collecting data on Americans, not to mention listen to Americans, influence Americans, and further divide Americans than ever before.
As bragged by TikTok openly in a supposedly closed door meeting, “everything is seen in China.”
No kidding. Especially with Beijing Biden at the helm. Of a deliberately sunken ship.
An engineer in Beijing is also apparently deified as a “master Admin, [who] has access to everything.”
Apparently, Biden has no qualms whatsoever about throwing national security under the bus for the CCP, preferring to target conservative parents at schoolboard meetings instead.
As tragic as the Biden administration’s outright encouragement and support of the CCP is, at least some individuals are realizing how truly insane Biden’s policies really are, including even commenters on Washington Post articles.
For instance, commenter JonPalos reacted with disgust to the White House’s engagement with effective CCP plants, which is clear in his rather intense, yet accurate, remark:
“What has happened in this country that now TikTok is considered a dominant news source! Most of the content on TikTok is stupid people doing stupid things. If this demographic needs the news … tell them to read a newspaper, assuming they know how to read or watch TV… there are PLENTY of more viable and reliable sources other than TikTok! What a joke!”
A joke indeed.
What’s an even bigger joke is that TikTok hasn’t been banned yet, in light of the clear and present danger it poses to national security.
Since the Biden administration won’t do anything to ban TikTok, considering it apparently depends on so-called TikTok “stars,” perhaps the Red Wave in November may bring about a serious overhaul in national security.
Starting with a ban of one of the most dangerous apps on the planet.
