Red-China Connected Tech Company Kicks Pro-Life Group Off of its Platform, then Casually Reinstates It Without Any Explanation

Published

on

The popular social video site, TikTok, initially banned the pro-life organization Live Action from its platform on Friday, January 31, 2020.

 

According to Live Action founder Lila Rose, the org was kicked off the platform for allegedly violating its “community guidelines.”

Roughly an hour after Live Action posted a video the app, TikTok memory-holed it.

Live Action immediately appealed the video’s removal and within 30 minutes, the organization was suspended from the site.

TikTok claimed that the “account was banned due to multiple Community Guidelines violations”, but it still isn’t clear what guidelines Live Action violated. Based on its community guidelines, TikTok purports to be “an inclusive platform built upon the foundation of creative expression. We encourage users to celebrate what makes them unique, while finding a community that does the same.”

“This is blatant viewpoint discrimination and an egregious attempt to silence pro-life voices,” Live Action declared in a press release. “TikTok should reinstate our account in full and allow all voices on the platform.”

In a more fortunate turn of events, TikTok apparently reinstated Live Action’s account.

However, Live Action received no correspondence from TikTok since it was originally suspended.

Rose tweeted, “UPDATE: Media is reporting that TikTok has told them they have now reinstated our account & it was a “human error.” Live Action has received ZERO communication from TikTok since being banned. It appears they have allowed our account to go back up w/ no explanation.”

 

She then followed up by tweeting “UPDATE #2: Just received this email from TikTok. After being banned yesterday for “violating multiple community guidelines,” we reached out & received no response. After publicizing this morning & after media inquiries, TikTok backtracks, claims “human error.” We are back up!”

Kylee Zempel of the Federalist provided some much-needed context to this entire situation.

The Chinese-owned TikTok has been under the microscope recently for its censorship of ideas that run counter to the Communist Party of China’s agenda. According to leaked documents The Guardian acquired, TikTok “instructs its moderators to censor videos that mention Tiananmen Square, Tibetan independence, or the banned religious group Falun Gong.” The Guardian’s investigation followed another report by the Washington Post, revealing the ambitious nature of China’s public-private partnership with social media.

“Researchers have grown worried that the app could also prove to be one of China’s most effective weapons in the global information war, bringing Chinese-style censorship to mainstream U.S. audiences and shaping how they understand real-world events,” recounted the Washington Post’s Drew Harwell and Tony Romm. “Compounding researchers’ concerns are TikTok’s limited public comments about the content it removes and its purported independence from censors in Beijing.”

The Chinese Communist Party recognizes how rampant political correctness is in America and uses it to its advantage by employing corporate actors to export censorship abroad.

This is one of numerous threats that China poses in the 21st century.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump

Published

on

Even with Black unemployment at its lowest rate in nearly 50 years under the Trump administration’s watch, South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn dismissed these numbers.

Clyburn said these numbers are “not true” because Blacks “were fully employed during slavery.” So, “it all depends on how you measure” it, he asserted.

On Fox News’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, host Neil Cavuto chatted with Clyburn about the Trump economy. Clyburn asked whether the president’s policies are beneficial to Black Americans.

“Let’s leave the words aside,” stated Cavuto.  “Whether you like his [Trump’s] style or not, or tweets or not, or comments or not,  he’s delivered the goods for a lot of African-Americans has he not? With record-low unemployment levels for one group or another. Among Africa-Americans, you don’t think that’s something constructive?”

Clyburn, who voted to impeach Trump back in December, said, “Come on, Neil.  No, no, it’s not true.   I’m saying that the African-American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been unless you count slavery.”

“We were fully employed during slavery,” claimed Clyburn. “So it all depends on how you measure this up.”

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the national unemployment rate for African American workers, 16 years and older, was 5.4% in August 2019.  Michael W. Chapman of CNS New said this was the lowest rate in recorded history.

The BLS data for African American begins in 1972, almost 50 years ago.  According to a chart that Chapman posted, the unemployment rate numbers from July through December 2019 were in the 5’s range — 5.9, 5.4, 5.5, 5.5, 5.6 and 5.9. In January 2020, the rate was 6.0 percent.

Clearly Democrat elected officials are in denial about Trump’s economic success.

However, if the Trump administration wants to win black votes, it will need to push immigration restriction given how unskilled labor tends to displace black labor.
