If you don't think this decision is rooted in Sinophobia, you're delusional. Trump built his campaign on xenophobia towards Mexico and China. This is just part of that.

This is a political move for sure but to call things associated with CCP sinophobic is also delusional and a common rhetoric to shutdown critique in the "West is worse!" worldview. CCP =/= not China or the Chinese GP (ofc different or even both it's a social media post/trend), and this is coming from someone who makes threads about the CCP government's messes often over the last few months - not because I am sinophobic, but I actually live in a place that is often engaged with China - both on the cyber front and the actual military front. 

 

And yes to rouse nationalism the external enemy tactic is certainly a trope; however Tiktok itself withdrew from Hong Kong following the National Security Law, likely to prevent data queries from the CCP - which Google and Facebook already denied. Tiktok is also distancing itself from Douyin (the actual China counterpart) and trying to rebrand. As that user said, this is a good decision in itself and will probably make young people vote against Trump, so win-win.

 

And in case a whataboutism about Western data collection is your next argument (not saying it will be, just because it comes up often) - the Facebook?Apple data harvesting is also abhorrent; and I hate it and have talked about how stupid it is that having social media is all but mandatory nowadays - the world currency is data, and has been for a while. The information going in and out of China's cyberspace is monitored heavily for this reason (interestingly viral Tiktoks often include 'disguised' information meant to bypass the censor); also why FB/Twitter are 'banned' there (read: those Western organizations not complying with mainland rules) - Western corporations want that huge market data for themselves, ultimately.

This is going to slowly escalate from an economic war to a world war.

I still confused why US is banning Tik Tok. Is it because Tik Tok is a chinese app and they found some anti-US propaganda or something?

 

I can't :ahh:

I was about to post whether or not people were being serious about this actually getting people to the poles/change their opinions on Trump but I guess this is all the proof I needed. ‘Harass women and you’re fine, take away Tik Tok and you’ll die’

I see only bitter old gay millennials pressed at Gen Z for dragging them on TikTok for being hopeless losers celebrating this.

 

All because of Sinophobia. pffft :skull: 

I'm celebrating this because it will BACKFIRE BIGLY on Trump. Nothing he does goes right :skull:

i spit on haters

Disgusting, racist app. -- Never cared for it. Love how this is a top concern for him. PLUMMETING in polls and losing key states to sleepy Joe, a growing pandemic, people soon to be evicted from their homes, millions out of work and without their job provided healthcare and people without healthcare in general, extra unemployment benefits cut, etc. and he's focused on banning...tik tok. Truly 'the land of the free'.

I won’t miss it. It became a messy and annoying influence towards music industry marketing.

TikTok has a racist and homophobic history aside from other shady stuff. They should be banned.
