What are you talkin about? Your reading comprehension is waning and you've got things ass backwards. Tik-Tok is chinese-owned in Tik-Tok is censoring information sensitive to the Chinese government. Because it's owned by the Chinese Communist Party!!! Is it starting to sink in?
i should apologize. need to recognize my audience better - and leave out the details of who/why/how. ignore all previous posts.

here is the gim2 version 2.0:

the overriding effect of this move will be censorship that benefits the nyc/dc vipers that lie to us every day.

that is all.

there are many issues that we dont want gassed by bill gates. this one just happens to be the most vocal - so lots of whining, boycotting, advocating, defunding, funding, kvetching, lies, propaganda.....from those that specialize in it

https://jewishjournal.com/news/3184...g-with-sharpton-in-pressing-facebook-boycott/

ADL CEO Under Fire for Partnering With Sharpton in Pressing Facebook Boycott


Bryan Leib, chairman of HaShevet, a new alliance of young Jewish American leaders that was formed amid dissatisfaction with mainstream Jewish advocacy organizations such as the ADL, echoed Klein as it pertains to Greenblatt and Sharpton, though questioned the Facebook boycott

Simultaneously, Facebook shouldn’t be the “the only social-media company to be targeted in this boycott led by the ADL,” said Leib.
He noted “a tremendous amount of hate speech on Twitter, Instagram and TikTok,” saying those sites should also be boycotted.

The Dark Virality of a Hollywood Blood-Harvesting Conspiracy

A centuries-old anti-Semitic myth is spreading freely on far-right corners of social media—suggesting a new digital Dark Age has arrived.

The Dark Ages were rife with plague, fanaticism, and accusations that Jews secretly fed off the blood of children. In 2020, we too are beset with plague, rampant medical misinformation, and a persistent rumor that “global elites” torture children to harvest the chemical adrenochrome from their blood, which they then inject in order to stay healthy and young.

A favorite topic of interconnected QAnon and Pizzagate conspiracy communities, so-called “adrenochrome harvesting” long predates these groups. It has, however, resurrected during the Covid-19 pandemic. Google Trends shows significant spikes in searches for adrenochrome in March and June of 2020. It’s prevalent on TikTok, Youtube, Reddit, and Instagram. On Friday, July 31, conspiracy theorists plan to hold the first “Child Lives Matter” protest in Hollywood to “expose” child trafficking, advertising the event with references to #adrenochrome.

‘The Dark Side of TikTok’: How the Newest Social Media Platform Lets Antisemitism Run Wild

TikTok might be the latest social media platform to catch the attention of young people everywhere, but reports of antisemitism and racist content have raised questions about its safety.

The app, which is owned by Chinese-based ByteDance Ltd., is a video-sharing and creative platform that allows users to upload 60-second videos to a network of followers. Today, it is the 7th most downloaded app of the decade and boasts more than 1.7 billion users – 800 million of whom log in at least once a month.

Most of the content on the platform is innocent, showing people lip-syncing and dancing to popular songs or young people simply telling jokes to the camera. However, there has been rising concerns about accounts that promote violence and antisemitism on the platform and the company’s reluctance to commit to its own terms of service in monitoring the content online.

Professor Gabriel Weinmann, author of “Spreading Hate on TikTok,” outlines some of the ways that the company fails to address the problems. He writes that the platform has attracted the attention of far-right extremists, who often post content that is antisemitic. These include, but are not limited to, theories that Jews caused 9/11 or run some ‘global conspiracy’ to control the world’s governments and media institutions.


The study, which was conducted between February and May of 2020, highlighted hundreds of far-right attackers, antisemitic posts, videos of speeches by Hitler, and promotion of the KKK. These included 43 antisemitic messages and 14 different instances of the Nazi salute.

Most of the time, children are unaware of the content that they are exposed to. Since 41 percent of TikTok’s user base is under the age of 24 – with most of that category under the age of 16 – they are unaware of some of the social or historical contexts of the material they see.

“You don’t expect a platform like that to be invaded by evil forces,” Professor Weinmann said in an exclusive interview with CTech. “When I say evil forces, we focus on antisemitism, but there are instances of pedophiles, sexual material, or pornographic material.”

According to TikTok’s own policy, users may not post “any material that is racist or discriminatory, including discrimination on the basis of someone’s race, religion, age, gender, disability, or sexuality.” However, this has been largely ignored and it appears that its terms of service policies were rushed out to quickly adapt to their sudden rise in usership.

Rick Eaton, senior researcher at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, discussed how TikTok has had to play catch up with ‘legacy’ platforms like Facebook and Twitter: “I think that the biggest thing is that the tech companies, or the more traditional companies like Facebook, Google, and Twitter, have had a lot more time to deal with the situation and to go through these various stages of being used by antisemites and terrorists. They’ve had a little bit more time to go assess their policies and put into place various measures to deal with them… if all of a sudden you go from 100,000 users to 800 million, there’s going to be some growth issues there.”

As far-right violence appears across social media platforms, questions often arise about the role of government and what part should be played by policymakers to curb some of the behavior seen online. In the US, it is made more complicated by First Amendment protections for free speech partnered with a president who is liberal with his own facts on Twitter.

“Many people, unfortunately, don’t understand the definition of censorship,” Eaton explains. “The only definition of censorship is when the government tells you you can’t do something.”

It seems that tech companies are often unlikely to assume responsibility for the content that appears on their platform. Under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, social media companies can technically identify as a ‘platform,’ and not a publisher. This means they don’t take any legal responsibility over the material that is found on their sites.

So where does this leave us? Since TikTok is Chinese-based and not American or European, it doesn’t answer to the same rules as other companies in western democracies. For now, 3rd party institutions need to fill in those gaps and make sure companies are acting responsibly by moderating the content posted by their users.

“Facebook has presented the best model because from the very beginning of that company, they understood the potential for pedophiles and others,” said Rabbi Cooper from the Simon Wiesenthal Center. “Insofar as TikTok, in some ways it is reminiscent of new companies coming in and making an impact.”

Whatever happens, TikTok is an appealing platform to billions of young and impressionable minds across the world. Professor Weinmann urges TikTok to “play by its own rules” in implementing some of the policies it has. If not the response could be deadly. A study by Tel Aviv University’s Kantor Center published in April found that 2019 witnessed a rise of 18 percent in major violent cases compared to 2018 (456 cases in 2019 compared to 387 in 2018).

Those incidents resulted in the killing of seven Jews. At least 53 synagogues and 28 community centers and schools were attacked in 2019. Online manifestations of hate have seen a major surge since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, with Jews being accused of creating or spreading the virus or benefiting from it.

“These are the people who will be molesting women, or the people who, in the future, will use aggression as a way to solve their conflicts,” Cooper concludes.
TikTok did not respond to our request for a comment on this story.

Tick Tock…For TikTok? Trump Gives Huge Hint About Plans For Chinese Social Media App


(Tea Party 247) – It may seem like nothing more than an annoying platform for teenagers to share videos of themselves dancing, but Chinese-owned TikTok is anything but innocent.
And we’re not just talking about putting teens at risk for online predation. Which is a valid concern as well.
No, TikTok is owned by a Chinese company and cybersecurity experts have long been raising concerns about the security of the foreign-owned app.

These concerns are all the more valid now that tensions between China and the US have never been higher as the fallout over the Chinese-based coronavirus continues.
In short, we can’t trust the Chinese as far as we can throw them right now, and the last thing Americans need is to have every pop music-obsessed teenager giving Chinese spies access to their most sensitive data.
You’d think that’s something anyone with half a brain could agree on but no, it’s 2020.
There is no doubt this will trigger a left-wing media meltdown, but what doesn’t these days?
Late Friday, President Donald Trump told reporters that he will ban TikTok from the United States as soon as Saturday.
The president said:
“As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States. I have that authority … It’s going to be signed tomorrow.”
Disrn explains that “TikTok, the wildly popular short-form video social media platform, is owned by ByteDance, a Chinese company. Due to the iron grip the Chinese Communist Party has over all aspects of life in China, including business, it is believed that TikTok is likely funneling vast amounts of user data to the Xi Jinping’s government, posing a significant national security threat. The company denies it.”
Who do you trust?
POTUS, or Communist President Xi Jingping?
Yeah.
That’s what I thought

Teens Love TikTok. Silicon Valley Is Trying to Stage an Intervention

  • Nov. 3, 2019
SAN FRANCISCO — Teenagers are gaga for TikTok. That’s why Silicon Valley is so worried about it.

TikTok, which is run by a seven-year-old company in Beijing called ByteDance, allows people to create short, snappy videos and share them around the world. That simple concept has fueled its rise to quickly become one of the world’s largest social networks and to mount the most direct incursion yet by a Chinese company into Silicon Valley’s turf.

TikTok Teens and the Trump Campaign: How Social Media Amplifies Political Activism and Threatens Election Integrity

TikTok teens and K-pop fans took over anti-Black Lives Matter hashtags such as #WhiteLivesMatter and drowned out the anti-Black Lives Matter messages with GIFs and memes. When people on social media platforms look for these hashtags, they’re met with seemingly unending images and fan videos of popular K-pop groups such as Twice and EXO.

This, in turn, leads algorithms on social media platforms to classify such trending hashtags as K-pop trends rather than political trends, thwarting the anti-Black Lives Matter activists who tried to use the hashtags to promote their messages.

[begin sarcasm]
CNN says there is no threat.​
The media says there is no threat.​
So there's no threat.​
The media says China can't access the company's data easily.​
The media also says Hong Kong is free.​
Senator Feinstein's Chinese employee who was a spy was a surprise to the senator.​
I guess Epstein really did kill himself after all.​
[end sarcasm]

Seriously, I stand by my original post about tiktok:

TikTok is owned by ByteDance, a Beijing-based tech company. That right there is enough.​
Pay China back for turning the year 2020 into shit for much of the world.
American's would do well to abandon everything made in China and buy "made in USA" as much as possible.
That is not an easy thing to do. Means abandoning much of what is sold on Amazon and Walmart.

Support President Trump as he moves to bring back prescription drug manufacturing to the USA from China.

China is not a friend of ours.

Nixon’s China Sell-Out
https://thediplomat.com/2018/07/nixons-china-sell-out/

excerpt:
Nixon and Kissinger gave China nearly everything that they could have asked for. The most important of these concessions was the “one China” policy, in which the United States acknowledged “that all Chinese on either side of the Taiwan Strait maintain there is but one China and that Taiwan is a part of China.”

I think we will rue the day we became friends with China.

Yep, call me paranoid.

What did you expect?

Here we go. Everything is Ray Sissed or Nazi.

That's an immediate, obvious tell that it's 100-percent bullshit.

It's also an indication of how lacking in imagination are these cuck-Leftists. They can't even generate ORIGINAL insults or charges. Everything, Ray-Cyst, Not-Zee.

....
They get all of their "information" and talking points from rabidly anti-freedom aparachiks like SPLC and ADL.

What app was/is there that tracks your location again??

A neighbor in the military said families could chat with hubby when over in Afghanistan using the app... problem was it actually showed their exact position, so the enemy could too!

Worse than “Loose lips sink ships”...
We used to disable even the payphones in the stairwell at Fort Ord when on alert, use of a telephone without permission for non-military official use was prohibited and punished under the UCMJ if discovered. Even for training alerts.

When we talk about China were talking about the Chinese government. The openly atheist, anti freedom, anti peace, murderous, full-blown Communist government who harvests their citizens organs by kidnapping them off the street, tearing their bodies open and selling their parts on the black market lije they were cattle. Meanwhile they kidnap people off the street and toture, msim and kill them for their spiritual, religious, or political belief. They've been set up by Google to censor all of the internet, there's a blockade on phone, mail and all media coming into or leaving the country while there communist propaganda permeates the people's minds along with threats of what happens if they don't follow the party line.

It is the ultimate den of conniving evil. Poor people who live there I've been poisoned since the cultural revolution where their traditional language what's replaced with a modern wash down Style as there statues and Relics are destroyed to uproot they're beautiful ancient heritage and traditions. You couldn't imagine a worse environment to be born.

Here's an example of how these spy apps work:

"...However, the app has been found to be much more than a simple propaganda tool. The U.S. government-funded Open Technology Fund contracted Germany cybersecurity firm Cure53 to dig into the app’s code to see what was hidden beneath. What Cure53 found is about as Owellian as it gets.

The “Study the Great Nation” app has what’s known as “superuser” access on Android devices. As the Washington Postexplains, such status is essentially a free-for-all backdoor for the app’s developers, in this case the Chinese Communist Party, to do and see anything they want to on the user’s phone. As the Post reports:

This includes allowing the app to access and take photos and videos, transmit the user’s location, activate audio recording, dial phone numbers and trawl through the user’s contacts and Internet activity, as well as retrieve information from 960 other applications including shopping, travel and messaging platforms. It even requires the ability to connect to WiFi and turn on the flashlight, according to the terms listed by Xiaomi, another Chinese smartphone manufacturer.​
“Study the Great Nation” is unfortunately a perfect example of how authoritarian governments can use a simple app to keep tabs on their citizenry."

Obama set it up, Trumps quashing it...

China is doing it...

and i mentioned Bill Gates earlier, yet,...at this time, No One has ownership other than the Chinese...and THAT's what's in contention
Yeah it reeks of double speak. It's perfectly fine for Google, Apple, Amazon and all the US companies to steal all of your data but how dare China get some of that data and keep it from the CIA/Google.

The apps can basically steal anything on your phone. Are you ok with that? I'm not regardless of who gets the data. So yeah, selling this to Gates and Co is like one minutia better than the CCP.

Exactly! We need to be 'vetting' "ourselves" at the same time...anyone found complicit, set the bar low, as simple as 'cold calling' people on the Do Not Call List (include the group that brought us the failed DNC list idea), they get a one-way ticket to 'somewhere else', do not pass go and you owe us half your wealth, after we've taxed the other half at 100%...

since that ain't going to happen, to be honest, if China began to pay me for my information, i'd still say No, but, give ME the profit for generating it in the first place...and no, discounts on stuff is not acceptable. Cold Hard Paper Fiat will be a good first choice for my income to be dealt with

I'll spend it where I need it...

i'm not a commodity for anyone but myself

Exactly! We need to be 'vetting' "ourselves" at the same time...anyone found complicit, set the bar low, as simple as 'cold calling' people on the Do Not Call List (include the group that brought us the failed DNC list idea), they get a one-way ticket to 'somewhere else', do not pass go and you owe us half your wealth, after we've taxed the other half at 100%...

since that ain't going to happen, to be honest, if China began to pay me for my information, i'd still say No, but, give ME the profit for generating it in the first place...and no, discounts on stuff is not acceptable. Cold Hard Paper Fiat will be a good first choice for my income to be dealt with

I'll spend it where I need it...

i'm not a commodity for anyone but myself
dont the user agreements cover all of that? users agree to data sharing in exchange for using the app

so nyc/dc vipers are interfering in contracts between user and tiktok, no? sanctity of contract is void if one challenges the 6 million meme

just talked to my gen z source again.

it said the cool thing about tiktok is the personal algo. it said that tiktok suggest videos in genres that you prefer. this user said it watched the 'conspiracy' hashtag grow from a tiny backwater into a very popular section. tiktok delivers what you want to see, not what 'they' want you to see.

it also said that the youngsters in 'conspiracy' section are gaining healthy HATE for hollywood and the actors -- because of their pedophilia. 9/11 truth is also growing on there.

SHUT IT DOWN

the because china is enemy meme is weak

not my bold

https://www.zerohedge.com/geopoliti...ans-went-chinese-owned-companies-report-finds

Hundreds of millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars went to Chinese companies from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which was designed to help small businesses survive during the pandemic, according to a new report.

A review of public PPP loan data by consultancy firm Horizon Advisory found that $192 million to $419 million in loans were given to more than 125 Chinese-owned or -invested companies operating in the United States. Many of the loans were substantial, with at least 32 Chinese-owned firms receiving more than $1 million under the program, totaling between $85 million and $180 million, it found.

The recipients included Chinese state-owned enterprises, companies that supported Beijing’s military development program, firms identified by the United States as national security threats, and media outlets controlled by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the report said. Many were based in critical industries such as aerospace, pharmaceuticals, and semiconductor manufacturing. These are sectors that the CCP has slated for aggressive development to achieve global dominance, with the goal of supplanting competitors in the United States and other countries.

The report concluded that “without appropriate policy guardrails and monitoring of U.S. tax dollars intended for relief, recovery, and growth of the U.S. economy, there is a significant risk that funds will support foreign strategic rivals, namely China.”

Many of these Chinese-linked firms could have tapped into other sources of capital from public or private markets to support their American operations, the report said.

Their PPP participation saved U.S.-based jobs, but likely at the expense of other U.S. small businesses.

So yeah, selling this to Gates and Co is like one minutia better than the CCP.
Unless you already have eyes on them. ;)

TikTok’s Parent Company Employs Chinese Communist Party Members in Its Highest Ranks

BY NICOLE HAO
August 7, 2020 Updated: August 7, 2020

More than 130 employees at ByteDance, the Chinese owner of video-sharing application TikTok, are part of a Chinese Communist Party (CCP) committee embedded in the company. Many of the employees work in management positions, an internal document reveals.

The extent of CCP membership among ByteDance management further demonstrates the company’s ties to the Chinese regime, fueling security concerns about TikTok.

By law, Chinese companies are required to set up Communist Party units within their offices to ensure that business policies and employees toe the Party line. ByteDance, founded in March 2012, set up its Party committee in October 2014.

According to Party regulations, companies’ committee members are appointed at political conferences. Members serve five-year terms.

It’s unclear exactly how many Party members or committee members are among ByteDance’s 60,000 employees across 230 global offices; the list obtained by The Epoch Times is only a partial listing of committee members at its Beijing headquarters.

At the headquarters office, at least 138 employees—mostly in management positions or technical roles—are in the company’s influential Beijing Party committee, according to the internal list. Sixty on the list are classified as having a managerial role.

The document details each committee member’s full name, gender, birthday, date they joined the CCP, ID numbers, and type of position in the company, such as managerial or technical.
