AOC Stooges For Tiktok

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I wonder what they have on her? Or what they’re paying her?

Ocasio-Cortez posts first TikTok in support of the app, says ban ‘doesn’t feel right’

As a potential TikTok ban looms, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) gave her response in a unique way: by posting her first video on the social media platform.

“This is not only my first TikTok, but it is a TikTok about TikTok,” Ocasio-Cortez said in her introduction, adding “Do I believe TikTok should be banned? No.”

The New York Democrat said banning the popular video-sharing app would be an “unprecedented” move.

“I think it’s important to discuss how unprecedented of a move this would be. The United States has never before banned a social media company from existence, from operating in our borders,” she said in her video. “And this is an app that has over 150 million Americans on it.

“They say because of this egregious amount of data harvesting, we should ban this app. However, that doesn’t really address the core of the issue,” Ocasio-Cortez said in her video.

What does she want instead?

“In fact, the United States is one of the only developed nations in then world that has no significant data or privacy protection laws on the books,” she argued, later adding “So to me, the solution here is not to ban an individual company — but to actually protect Americans from this kind of egregious data harvesting that companies can do without your significant ability to say no.”

She wants massive government control over social media companies…which would put the data in the hands of the U.S. government. Kinda like what China is doing. Strange, eh?

AOC TikTok defense ripped after Chinese parent company gave 6-figure donations to Hispanic caucus nonprofits

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., was criticized for defending TikTok after it was revealed the app’s Chinese-owned parent company gave six-figure donations to the Black and Hispanic caucus non-profits.

Fox News Digital previously reported that disclosures show ByteDance, TikTok’s Chinese parent company, funneled six-figure contributions to nonprofits aligned with the congressional Black and Hispanic Caucuses. ByteDance donated $150,000 to both the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and Congressional Hispanic Caucus Foundation in December, its lobbying contribution report shows.

Jake Denton, who handles tech policy for the Heritage Foundation, noted on Twitter Sunday that AOC is a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) advisory council.

“What a coincidence!” Denton wrote, responding to Ocasio-Cortez’s video defense of TikTok initially shared Saturday.

Some Democrats are in support of banning Tiktok, then you have some like Jamaal Bowman and Robert Garcia….wait, aren’t they part of those caucuses?

Personally, I’m not for a ban, except on government devices. If private citizens want to be dumb and use it, giving the Chinese government all their data, well, that’s on them for being stupid.
