Either Get Rid of TikTok or Just Surrender to China

“TikTok is undoing all of that. It’s crazy to watch in real time.”

In its latest social experiment, Communist China decided to test an algorithm to see if it could get social media influencers and idiot kids under its control on TikTok to come out for Osama bin Laden.

Worked pretty well.

Now that the test is over, TikTok announced that the Osama trend has been shut down. But it was successful.

TikTok’s hot new social-media influencer is . . . Osama bin Laden. Yes, the terrorist who plotted 9/11 went viral this week, and not in a good way. Users have been posting videos to the Chinese-owned app, urging their followers to read bin Laden’s 2002 “letter to America,” while suggesting he was on to something. “I will never look at this country the same,” one user said.

Giving Hollywood and public school teachers control of our kids was a bad idea. Giving Chinese Communist algorithms control over our kids is a much worse idea.

A TikTok influencer went viral this week for promoting Osama bin Laden’s “Letter to America.”

Online personality and pro-Palestinian activist Lynette Adkins urged her over 175,000 TikTok followers on Tuesday to read the words of the terrorist mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks.

“I need everyone to stop what they’re doing right now and go read- It’s literally two pages. Go read ‘A Letter to America,” Adkins said the video. “And please come back here and just let me know what you think because I feel like I’m going through, like, an existential crisis right now and a lot of people are, so I just need someone else to be feeling this.”

Another TikTok user raeyreads posted the entire letter on her page which received over 640,000 views despite having only 1,300 followers.

“We’ve been lied to our entire lives,” raeyreads wrote Monday. “I remember watching people cheer when Osama was found and killed. I was a child, and it confused me. It still confuses me today. The world deserves better than what this country has done to them. Change must be made.”

Change must be made. It begins with prying Communist China off our phones and away from our kids.

A forced sale or a ban on TikTok is elementary national security. Trump went ahead with it. And yet once there were efforts at passing legislation, TikTok executives managed to buy up AOC, and leftist and some fake right-wing influencers who started screaming that unless we give China access to our phones and kids, we’ll lose our rights.

Commenters who had never commented before here showed up screaming in defense of TikTok.

And you know the rest of the story. TikTok survived. I’m not sure America will.

Giving our leading geopolitical foe direct access to much of our population and the opportunity to program our kids in real time is a hell of a move.

“TikTok is going to save this generation,” Adkins said. “The amount of things that we’ve learned on this app in this past month alone that other people in other generations I tried to talk to them about it, they don’t understand. They don’t get it because they’ve been literally so programmed to think a certain way TikTok is undoing all of that. It’s crazy to watch in real time.”

What’s crazy is that we’re letting them do this.

If we can’t ban TikTok, then why bother fighting? Forget standing up for Taiwan, the South China Sea or Hawaii. We can’t even manage to stand up for our kids and our country. And the moment we do, some paid influencers will take a few hundred bucks to take a break from pushing Osama bin Laden to warn that Chinese Communist spyware must be protected from government interference.
