China-Backed TikTok Platform Bans Accounts of Popular ‘America First’ Conservatives

China does not want pro-America beliefs disseminated on their platform.

The China-backed social media platform TikTok has banned several popular “America First” conservative voices from using their service.

Paleoconservative vlogger Nick Fuentes, national student leader Jaden McNeil and former Infowars reporter Jake Lloyd were tossed from the platform with no reasons given by TikTok as to why the censorship was enacted.

Controlled opposition voices on the Right are celebrating the Orwellian move by the communist spying tool as a victory.

McNeil alleges that a conspiracy was hatched between the phony right and the far-left to target “America First” voices and protect their phony debate.

There may be something to McNeil’s claim as Nick Lowenberg, a popular TikTok personality who appeals to conservatives with his content, called for an alliance with the Left to defeat the banned personalities, and then declared victory when they were censored.

The far-left is also running victory laps after organizing a digital lynch mob to target the America First voices at the behest of Lowenberg.

This is not the first time that mainstream conservatives have used ANTIFA-style tactics in an attempt to deplatform their right-wing competition.

Big League Politics reported on how Conservative Inc. tried to cancel iconic pundit Michelle Malkin because she refused to throw “America First” patriots under the bus last year:

Right-wing commentator Michelle Malkin is being targeted by Conservative Inc. – the billionaire-funded operative class that keeps the conservative movement from actually conserving anything – for cancellation with similar tactics and rhetoric that are regularly deployed by the far left.

Malkin drew the ire of Conservative Inc. after she gave a defiant speech last week where she applauded “America First” patriots who were challenging speakers such as Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk, Never Trump cheerleader Ben Shapiro, and neoconservative Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-TX)…

Malkin gave the speech to the UCLA chapter of the Young America’s Foundation (YAF), which released a statement afterward that looks as if it was written by a staffer with the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

YAF’s denunciation of Malkin comes while other Conservative Inc. operatives throw her under the bus. It is clear that the paymasters in charge have sent the order that it is time to lead a politically-correct witch hunt against Malkin, in a shameful example of right-wing cancel culture in action…

While the “America First” patriots asking pointed questions at campus events can certainly be incendiary and offensive at times, they have made quite a substantial impact in a short period of time.

The ramifications of their grassroots agitation against Conservative Inc. are just starting being seen, as phony conservatives are forced to adopt ANTIFA-style tactics to ward the insurgents off. This is only the beginning, as the “America First” patriots vow much more of the same in the months and years to come.

The agitation of the “America First” crowd has exposed the conservatives who do not stand for freedom of speech and will use the Orwellian power of Big Tech for their own malicious ends.

ByteDance Agrees to Sell TikTok After President Trump’s Threat to Shut Down China-Based Social Media App

Microsoft will be acquiring TikTok.

Published

The Chinese corporation ByteDance has agreed to sell social media platform TikTok to Microsoft after President Donald Trump threatened to shut down TikTok in the U.S.

Reuters reported on Saturday that ByteDance caved to Trump’s demands for the firm to divest in U.S. operations of TikTok entirely. TikTok has been accused of funneling the personal data of U.S. citizens to the Chinese communist government.

“We are here for the long run. Continue to share your voice here and let’s stand for TikTok,” TikTok U.S. general manager Vanessa Pappas said in a video released on Saturday.

Under the proposed deal, Microsoft will be in charge of TikTok’s U.S. user data. The rest of the U.S. operations for TikTok are expected to be taken over by another corporation.

President Trump had previously threatened to shut down TikTok in the U.S. this weekend if they refused to change their business model to ensure that the personal data of U.S. citizens cannot be exploited by the Chinese.

“As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” Trump said to reporters on Friday, adding that he could do so with emergency economic powers or through an executive order.

Big League Politics has reported on how TikTok is being investigated by the federal government as a potential hazard to national security:

The U.S. government is beginning a national security review of the Chinese-owned TikTok viral video app.

Reuters reported on the beginning of the investigation on Friday. The U.S. Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States is inquiring into TikTok’s parent company, Beijing ByteDance Technology Co.

Specifically, investigators are said to be probing the company’s 2017 $1 billion acquisition of another app, Musical.ly. That app was combined with TikTok in August of 2018.

Foreign companies that acquire American technology entities are subject to review by the Committee on Foreign Investment. TikTok’s parent was never reviewed for its acquistion of Musical.ly, and is thus being investigated after the fact for any potential discrepancies related to their business practices.

TikTok has skyrocketed in popularity, becoming one of the most popular social media apps since its initial release in 2016. It boasts more than 26 million annual users, 60% of whom are between 16-24 years old.

Much of the content uploaded on the platform is innocuous, allowing users to make easily edited videos and viral content.

Senators such as Josh Hawley and Marco Rubio have expressed concern that TikTok’s owners could be cooperating with the Chinese government to surveil Americans and implement political censorship.

The founder of Musical.ly, Alex Zhu, began to report directly to ByteDance’s Chinese CEO, Zhang Yiming. He had previously reported to a lower-ranking ByteDance subsidiary.

Hawley has called for TikTok executives to testify next week at a Senate hearing in regards to American consumer data ending up in the hands of Chinese companies. Chinese businesses are required by law to cooperate with the nation’s intelligence agencies.

President Trump has demonstrated that his tough talk can result in action that will protect U.S. citizens from being sold out to Chinese communists.
