“TikTok poses an unacceptable national security risk due to its extensive data harvesting being combined with Beijing’s apparently unchecked access to that sensitive data.” – Federal Communications Commission (FCC)

This is true.

Now replace TikTok with Facebook, Snapchat, <insert Silicon Valley Big Tech corporation or startup here> and Beijing with Washington, DC and…

This is also true.

@aral 😂🤣😂 The same thing happens all the time in my country, the United States 🇺🇸! I dislike the government of China 🇨🇳, but at least they are not hypocritical about harvesting corporate user data.

The USA “righteously” accuses other nations of committing the same sins America regularly practices.

Example: USA 🇺🇸 accuses Russia 🇷🇺 of illegally occupying Ukraine 🇺🇦, but the USA 🇺🇸 illegally occupies the Chagos Archipelago in Mauritius 🇲🇺.
