Tech giant Apple has caved to Chinese demands and pulled an app from their store that allowed Hong Kong freedom protesters to track police officers.
Apple had previously banned the controversial app, HKmap.live, before reversing course last week after widespread outrage. This prompted an angry response from the People’s Daily, the official propaganda rag of the Chinese Communist Party.
“Foreign companies probably don’t understand the sentiments and way of thinking of Chinese people. Our ancestors had been bullied. But today we are united more than ever. On issues involving principles, we have zero tolerance for wrongdoings. Providing a gateway for “toxic apps” is hurting the feelings of the Chinese people, twisting the facts of Hong Kong affairs, and against the views and principles of the Chinese people,” the propaganda rag stated.
“Apple and other corporations should be able to discern right from wrong. They also need to know that only the prosperity of China and China’s Hong Kong will bring them a broader and more sustainable market,” the communists concluded in a veiled threat to Apple.
The message was received by Apple loud and clear, and they quickly groveled to their Chinese masters by removing the app from their app store.
“The app displays police locations and we have verified with the Hong Kong Cybersecurity and Technology Crime Bureau that the app has been used to target and ambush police, threaten public safety, and criminals have used it to victimize residents in areas where they know there is no law enforcement,” Apple said in a statement about their decision to appease the ChiComs.
In another show of fealty, Apple also banned the Quartz app in China on Wednesday in order to help the totalitarian country enforce thought control over its massive population.
“We abhor this kind of government censorship of the internet, and have great coverage of how to get around such bans around the world,” Quartz CEO Zach Seward said to The Verge.
Apple also removed the Taiwan flag emoji from their iOS 13 platform for its users in Hong Kong and Macau this week, demonstrating their utter subservience to the communist nation.
Apple is not the only Big Tech firm in bed with China, as Google works closely alongside them to perfect the Orwellian Nightmare:
The White House expressed concern about Google building a controversial search engine for the communist Chinese government that would significantly censor search results.
“Vice President Mike Pence commented today in a speech that Google’s modified search engine — currently under the codename Dragonfly — would ‘strengthen Communist Party censorship and compromise the privacy of Chinese customers,’” according to The Verge.
The project reportedly will track users’ searches back to their mobile phones, allowing the Chinese government, which is implementing a “social credit score” system, to track every internet user and potentially punish them for their searches…
The Intercept reported that Jack Poulson, a senior research scientist at the tech giant, quit his job in protest over the project.
“I view our intent to capitulate to censorship and surveillance demands in exchange for access to the Chinese market as a forfeiture of our values and governmental negotiating position across the globe,” he said. “There is an all-too-real possibility that other nations will attempt to leverage our actions in China in order to demand our compliance with their security demands.”
With Big Tech – and most other multinational corporations – having sold their souls to China, the stakes of President Donald Trump’s trade war against the far-east menace could not be higher.
Facebook Protects Leftist Arsonists Starting Wildfires, Promotes Global Warming Propaganda
The censorship is increasing.
Tech giant Facebook is banning all chatter of potential arsonists causing wildfires that are rocking states like Oregon and California on the west coast.
Andy Stone, the veteran Democrat operative who runs communications for Facebook, made the announcement in a Twitter post:
This is consistent with our past efforts to remove content that could lead to imminent harm given the possible risk to human life as the fires rage on. (2/2)
— Andy Stone (@andymstone) September 12, 2020
At the same time, Facebook is redirecting people to globalist propaganda about climate change. They are putting this into users’ news feeds.
While Facebook may want to dismiss the notion that the wildfires on the west coast were started by arsonists, the authorities are already apprehending suspects who are believed to have started fires.
Michael Jarrod Bakkela, 41, has been hit with two charges for arson, 14 counts of reckless endangering, and 15 counts of criminal mischief. Law enforcement believe that Bakkela’s blaze caused “significant damage.”
“There are numerous homes, many of which are burnt completely, some are just heavily damaged, that are part of the 15 counts of criminal mischief,” Jackson County Sheriff’s Office public information officer Mike Moran told ABC News.
Similar to Facebook, the deep state is covering for the behavior of the leftist anarchists as well.
“FBI Portland and local law enforcement agencies have been receiving reports that extremists are responsible for setting wildfires in Oregon. With our state and local partners, the FBI has investigated several such reports and found them to be untrue. Conspiracy theories and misinformation take valuable resources away from local fire and police agencies working around the clock to bring these fires under control. Please help our entire community by only sharing validated information from official sources,” the FBI said in a statement.
Big League Politics reported last week about another far-left extremist who has been charged with setting fires:
A man with a lengthy history of left-wing political activism and a several misdemeanor convictions was arrested for allegedly setting a fire on a Washington highway as devastating wildfires burn throughout the western United States in Oregon, Washington and California.
Jeffrey Acord is a longtime Black Lives Matter activist and rioter who first was criminally charged with riot offenses during a 2014 Seattle protest, in which BLM activists reacted to the decision not to pursue criminal charges against Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson. Accord was arrested and charged with concealed carry violations at that event.
The Pullayup, Washington Police department claims to have caught Acord in the act of setting a fire in the median of Highway 167 in the state. He’s being charged with reckless burning in the second degree, a gross misdemeanor punishable by up to 364 days in jail.
In a shocking twist, Acord livestreamed his own arrest. He argued that he merely called police to report the fire, denying that he had anything to do with the fire’s origin, before police arrested him.
It is time for the organized Left to be treated like the associated forces of terrorism that they are and dealt with swiftly.
