Reports show that Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) has spoken out against teenage TikTokers who support the ideology of terrorist leader Osama bin Laden. He demanded that the app be banned before the CCP took over as the United States’ most popular media platform and started spreading harmful and nasty propaganda.
After bin Laden’s 2002 letter trying to rationalize the mass slaughter of Americans on September 11, 2001, went viral on TikTok, Gallagher addressed the current tendency of young Americans to post videos of their alignment with bin Ladin.
The assault, in which Islamic terrorists crashed passenger planes into the Pentagon and the World Trade Center, killing about 3,000 Americans, was orchestrated by bin Laden.
Gallagher condemned the rationalization of the assaults by disclosing the ugly reality of Islamic terrorism and the horrifying pictures of Hamas beheading innocent people with garden hoes and killing newborns.
According to the White House, nobody should be associated with the horrible remarks of Osama bin Laden, as 3,000 American families are still grieving the loss of loved ones.
Gallagher cautioned that the rise in young American support for the terrorist organization Hamas was primarily due to the social media platform TikTok, calling it the biggest-scale malicious influence campaign that has ever been carried out. He said that young Americans were being “brainwashed” with China’s digital fentanyl.
A report from 2022 showed that TikTok officials received Chinese government requests to create a stealth account to spread CCP indoctrination to US and European audiences.
TikTok executives resisted the Chinese government’s demand due to the charges that the social media site and its owner, ByteDance, are too aligned with Beijing.
Unbeknownst to the users, TikTok was collecting massive quantities of personal data without their consent, according to an independent research.
A report shows that Chinese nationals control the platform’s parent corporation and have access to user data, according to leaked internal documents in June 2022, which TikTok management had previously denied. In the documents, one TikTok worker said everything is viewed in China.
Despite TikTok’s repeated denials, opponents point out that all Chinese corporations are legally obligated to cooperate with the People’s Liberation Army’s requests for assistance in an instant and in complete secrecy.
