On July 9, 2020, prominent gamer YouTuber Tyler “Ninja” Blevins announced that he deleted the Chinese-based app TikTok due to his concerns regarding the app’s privacy practices.
“I have deleted the TikTok app off all my devices. Hopefully a less intrusive company (data farming) that isn’t owned by China can recreate the concept legally, such funny and amazing content on the app from influencers,” Ninja announced to his 6 million followers on Twitter.
This latest rejection of TikTok by Ninja represents a growing disillusionment with the app due to increased scrutiny over its privacy practices.
It previously experienced considerable growth in the last two years — where it reached 1 billion users,
The social network has positioned itself through its short videos.
It is owned by the Beijing-based tech company ByteDance and has been mired by privacy issues. Some are even questioning its relationship to the Chinese government and raising speculation about the Chinese government having access to user data.
The company has denied any connections to the Chinese government and asserts that its data is secure.
After a deadly encounter with Chinese forces on its border, India’s government banned TikTok and 58 other Chinese apps.
Even Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a Fox News interview that the U.S. government is potentially “looking at” banning Chinese social media apps, especially TikTok. “With respect to Chinese apps on people’s cellphones, I can assure you the United States will get this one right too,” Pompeo said during an interview on July 6’s episode of Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle.
Pompeo continued by saying that people should only download TikTok “if you want your private information in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party.”
The rise of China has made people in the U.S. question its relationship with the East Asian nation.
Although its growth story in the last three decades has been awe-inspiring, China has not fundamentally changed in its authoritarian ambitions.
In fact, many of its aims often collide with American interests. For that reason, America must socially distance itself from China and pursue policies that allow for reasonable growth while protecting national interests.
Mexican Government Reported that Nearly 80,000 People are Still Missing
Mexico Spirals Out of Control While Joe Biden Promises Mass Amnesty
According to a report released by the Mexican government on November 25, 2020, over 79,500 people are still missing in Mexico.
This comes in the backdrop of Mexico’s infamous military offensive against drug cartels in 2006. Since the erstwhile president Felipe’s military offensive against drug cartels, the number of missing people in Mexico has skyrocketed.
Before 2006, there were 1,500 disappearances in Mexico, per statistics that Deputy Human Rights Minister Alejandro Encina put forward. Since July, there have been roughly 6,300 new cases reported.
Encina observed, however, that the number of disappearances have dropped since 2019.
Mexico is notorious for its alarming levels of violence, which is largely perpetuated by organized crime. In 2019, 34,582 people were murdered. So far in 2020, 26,431 people have been murdered from January to September.
Encinas claimed that Mexican authorities have discovered 1,399 mass graves in Mexico over the past two years. Of the 2,290 bodies discovered in the graves, 879 have been identified.
Mexico is not in good shape and that’s putting it lightly. America at least recognized this with Donald Trump in office. Trump was elected on an America First platform which stressed tough policies on the border and was not willing tolerate mass immigration like his predecessors.
Sadly, the apparent president-Joe Biden is more concerned with trying to pass mass amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens and freezing deportations for 100 days.
Securing our Southern border is a recognition of the cold, hard truth that Mexico is falling apart, and it’s institutional and social rot could potentially make its way up north. Much to America’s chagrin, the next occupant of the White House will likely not recognize that. Should fraud allegations fail to invalidate the current results of the 2020 elections, America First patriots must act accordingly and make immigration a massive issue during the 2022 midterms, both in the primaries and general election.
