If I was the Chinese, I would ban every single US company from operating in China after this TikTok ban.
This is the most disgusting attack on basic business operations I’ve seen. China should block all Hollywood movies, all of their software, all of it.
China has rolled out a mechanism allowing curbs on foreign entities harmful to its security and interests. It comes as the US pledges to bar people from downloading Chinese mobile apps, citing “national security concerns.”
The Chinese Commerce Ministry unveiled the “unreliable foreign entity list” earlier on Saturday, with the official purpose of safeguarding national security interests, as well as maintaining “fair and free international economic and trade order.”
It appears to be a response to the US Department of Commerce, which recently added Huawei to the country’s ‘Entity List’, restricting the Chinese tech giant’s access to items produced domestically and abroad using US technology and software.
The announcement by the ministry did not single out specific foreign entities, but widely elaborated on factors that could enable the government to trigger restrictive measures.
These could be imposed if such entities endanger “national sovereignty, security or development interests of China,” apply discriminatory measures “against an enterprise, other organization, or individual of China,” or cause serious damage to the rights and interests of Chinese companies or individuals.
Sanctions may come in the form of fines, as well as restriction of operations and investment in China. Beijing will also be able to refuse entry to foreign personnel or equipment into the country.
You can say what you want about the Chinese, but they are cooperating with the international business regulations, and the US is doing a dirty, scummy thing to help out the biggest bastards on earth, which are Facebook and Google.
TikTok allowed people to joke about the Holocaust, it allowed some degree of freedom. It was popular and fun and it meant that these Jewish companies did not have a 100% total stranglehold on discourse in America.
This violates basic international rules. It is a bizarre act.
If we had more Chinese companies in the US, we would have more freedom, which is yet another reason that it’s being shut down. The US government continually claims that there is no freedom in China. Meanwhile, we’re not allowed to go to church or the gym, and the Chinese are allowed to say whatever they want about Jews and gays and black people.
This country is being locked down, and banning TikTok is as much about making sure that when these Jews overthrow the government that we don’t have any ability to say anything about it as it is about shoring up the monopolies of Facebook, Google and Amazon.
This is ensuring you don’t ever have a shot at free speech. That’s what the monopoly of the tech companies is about. Making sure there is no exit for you. China gives me services, they would happily give them to the rest of us, and that is the threat that the federal government sees in allowing the Chinese to operate in America.
They want to ensure that you have no chance at having freedom.
When the Jews pull the rug – there is no escape.
