Right for Once: David Hogg Describes TikTok As a “National Security Threat”

Published

on

On March 25, 2020, Parkland mass survivor-turned gun control activist David Hogg had one shining moment.

Instead of going on his typical anti-gun screeds, he called out the Chinese Communist Party and its popular app, TikTok.

Hogg Tweeted, “Tik Tok is a national security threat that should only be used to call out the Chinese government (who controls it) for their atrocities and human rights abuses. Seriously y’all memes and jokes are fun but downloading the spyware of an authoritarian regime is not.”

 

TikTok has become popular among American youth for its videos where they make memes, jokes, and dance scenes.

Surprisingly, Hogg is aware of the company’s close connection to the China’s authoritarian government, which BLP also covered previously.

He then made a follow-up Tweet where he said, “I’m not kidding, we need to cancel TikTok.”

Hogg is aware of how TikTok is used to monitor Chinese citizens and crackdown against Hong Kong protestors.

He Tweeted the following: “Another reason I will not be going on there is because they censor activists voices in Hong Kong and around the world that call out the CCP for their atrocities. I refuse to be complicit in the death of democracy in Hong Kong by supporting Tik Tok.”

This is another textbook example of the old adage of a broken clock being right twice a day.

Hopefully, Hogg sticks to bashing China instead of pushing gun-grabbing plots.

Federal Government Threatens to Defund Connecticut School Districts for Allowing Males to Compete in Female Sports

Published

on

In a “letter of impending enforcement action” released on May 28, 2020, the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights declared that The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference violated Title IX by “permitting the participation of certain male student-athletes” in girls’ track events at several school districts.

The federal investigation was kicked off last summer and were the result of the Alliance Defending Freedom filing a complaint on behalf three female students. The Justice Department took sides with female students during the past month.

The biological females sustained that the “Transgender Participation” policy, which was first enacted seven years ago, were stripped of their rights under Title IX by allowing “boys who are male in every biological and physiological respect” compete in their sports, provided that they “claim a female gender identity.”

The CIAC policy started to yield troubling results when two biological males who identified as girls began dominating girls’ track meets. This policy is less stringent than the NCAA’s transgender policy, which mandates males to take testosterone-suppressing hormones for at least a year before participating in female sports competitions.

Three school districts violated Title IX by also participating in CIAC athletic events. “Glastonbury, Canton, and Danbury placed female student-athletes in athletic events against male student-athletes, resulting in competitive disadvantages for female student-athletes,” federal officials stated.

They added:

The athletic events in which the female student-athletes competed were coeducational; female student-athletes were denied the opportunity to compete in events that were exclusively female, whereas male student-athletes were able to compete in events that were exclusively male.

On top of that, three other districts – Hartford, Bloomfield and Cromwell – violated Title IX by allowing two biological males, Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood, compete on female teams per CIAC policy. According to the OCR, the conference and six districts “treated student-athletes differently based on sex.”

According to Greg Piper of the College Fix, “The letter uses pseudonyms for the students but all have been previously named. The girls filed a related lawsuit in February under their real names: Alanna Smith, Chelsea Mitchell and Selina Soule.”

The conference and six districts rejected “resolution agreements” with OCR, prompting the office to issue them “letters of impasse” on March 17. These are basically warning letters. The office initially gave them 10 days to comply. They then extended the deadline by an additional 30 days as a result of “their COVID-19-related duties and responsibilities.”

At the moment, OCR will either “initiate administrative proceedings” to block federal funding for the conference and districts or hand the cases over to the Justice Department in order for it to enforce federal law.

It’s good to see athletes finally get justice.

Thanks to the Left grabbing control of so many American institutions, Americans are subjected to a wide array of politically correct experiments.

This is a solid victory which should be built upon by the Trump administration and members of Congress.
