Don't Ban TikTok, Ban China's Control and Secure the Data
While you are at it, apply those Rules to Google, Youtube, Facebook and the Rest of Them
The impulse to ban communication is infectious. We had another politician, Sen. Mark Kelly, D-Ariz, calling for even more censorship.
"Just got off a Zoom meeting with Fed, Treasury, FDIC, House and Senate," Massie tweeted on Sunday. "A Democrat Senator essentially asked whether there was a program in place to censor information on social media that could lead to a run on the banks." (source)
Senator Massie later tweeted his name.
Now there is a growing gang of politicians who want to ban TikTok, the short-form video hosting service owned by the Chinese company ByteDance. The growth of TikTok has been explosive and it's likely one of the main reasons that politicians want to kill it. Below are 10 stats about TikTok that would scare the big boys/girls within Google and the Intelligence agencies:
You can also see a good illustrative animated visual of it's explosive growth here.
Don't get me wrong, the last thing I would want is for China and/or the Globalists to have control of our data, to censor and to use the tool against us with propaganda and lies. But the problem we have with TikTok is the SAME problem we have with all the social media applications/platforms.
The Federalist just released an investigative report showing that the US Government has given over 500 grants to for-profit companies to create more powerful tools using AI and machine learning to combat "disinformation" and "misinformation". We now have the definitive proof, thanks to the Twitter Files, that those determining what is "misinformation" or "disinformation" are not only wrong, but also driven by ulterior motives and agendas.
We also know that the Smith Mundt act revisions from 2012 gave the US government the right to use propaganda against the American people. Considering the US government has, without a doubt, been shown to have lost its way, being influenced (or controlled) by globalist actors such as the WHO and the World Economic Forum whose goals are not align with those of the American people, we must implement actions to protect Americans from all of these actors. Not just from TikTok.
We should refrain from using arguments like, "The Chinese bans Facebook so we should ban TikTok", or "The Chinese wouldn't allow it in their own country so why should we allow it here". Those are childish emotional arguments used by those who cannot think past emotions or are trying to create division.
Do we really want to be like the Chinese? Of course not.
But we should be a heck of a lot smarter and protect ourselves from ALL enemies foreign and domestic by banning the Chinese control of the data and the Globalists control of the American company's data like Google, Youtube, and Facebook. While we are at it, we should also be addressing our domestic enemies who are blackmailed or aligned with the Globalists and/or the Chinese.
