Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Saturday night, following a smaller turnout at the Trump rally in Oklahoma:
“Actually you just got ROCKED by teens on TikTok who flooded the Trump campaign w/ fake ticket reservations & tricked you into believing a million people wanted your white supremacist open mic enough to pack an arena during COVID
Shout out to Zoomers. Y’all make me so proud”
Let’s be clear: TikTok is controlled by the Chinese Communist Party, as we detailed in May here on The National Pulse.
The app has removed references to the Tiananmen Square massacre, in line with demands from Chinese Communist Party officials, and has been flagged by a number of leading cyber-security monitors on national security grounds.
In a bipartisan move last year Senators Tom Cotton and Chuck Schumer sent a joint letter to acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire requesting the Intelligence Community conduct a security assessment of TikTok.
The letter noted:
“Questions have also been raised regarding the potential for censorship or manipulation of certain content. TikTok reportedly censors materials deemed politically sensitive to the Chinese Communist Party, including content related to the recent Hong Kong protests, as well as references to Tiananmen Square, Tibetan and Taiwanese independence, and the treatment of Uighurs. The platform is also a potential target of foreign influence campaigns like those carried out during the 2016 election on U.S.-based social media platforms.”
Now, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is bragging about this potential foreign influence, while CNN’s Brian Stelter called it a “no show protest” without offering his viewers any insight into the TikTok app and who owns it.
