TikTok could be subservient to the genocidal Chinese authorities, however the platform’s actual offense was permitting conservative commentators, a leftist group stated.
“Comedian and conservative commentator Steven Crowder has been banned from China’s TikTok viral video platform,” Reclaim The Net reported June 26. Leftist group Media Matters proclaimed it was behind the purge: “Far-right internet personality Steven Crowder has been banned from TikTok following a June 8 Media Matters report highlighting his bigotry on the platform,” the group wrote in a June 24 update. “A TikTok spokesperson confirmed to Media Matters that Crowder’s account had been removed for violating its community guidelines.”
Media Matters management has obtained in depth funding from leftist megadonor George Soros, the record shows. Soros’ Foundation to Promote Open Society (OSF) tax types has proven 5 separate donations between 2010 and 2014 totalling $1,575,000. Soros gave the group cash each different 12 months throughout that point. The leftist group launched a report earlier in June sliming Crowder for “using TikTok to spread hate to a younger audience.” The report unfold fearmongering rhetoric about Crowder’s reputation:
“Crowder’s TikTok follower count and video views have been steadily growing since he began consistently using the platform in April. Despite being relatively new to the site, Crowder has already used TikTok to post transphobic rants, attack transgender actor Elliot Page, and claim that Derek Chauvin didn’t get a fair trial. All of this content seems to violate TikTok’s hateful behavior or misinformation policies.”
Media Matters might have additionally revealed the primary motive why liberals are petrified of conservative commentators accessing platforms like TikTok to unfold right-wing humor:
“Beyond the substance of Crowder’s content, his direction of users to these sites is particularly concerning given TikTok’s young user base, where as much as one-third of users may be 14 years old or younger.”
Liberals as soon as advised censorship-weary conservatives to construct their very own platforms, however Media Matters expressed outrage on the considered Crowder utilizing different web sites, and even his personal: “Not only is Crowder’s content undeniably hateful, but he is also actively directing users to Rumble, the far-right YouTube alternative, as well as his own website, where he uploads full-length shows containing all of the misinformation and hatred referenced above (and more).”
TikTok didn’t reply to inquiry from MRC Free Speech America concerning Crowder’s reported purge from the platform.
