The late comedian George Carlin once astutely noted the word bipartisan “usually means some larger-than-usual deception is being carried out.”
The new Tiktok bill, known as the RESTRICT Act, falls into this category. The legislation was introduced by Uniparty members Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) and Sen. John Thune (R-SD). The bill does not mention TikTok by name but the Uniparty members said they had the Chinese app in mind when drafting the legislation.
The legislation supposedly is about national security and protecting the United States from its major foreign adversaries. But Tucker Carlson revealed the real agenda behind the bill is controlling the American population and punishing them.
The bill is ostensibly about protecting American national security and ending ‘foreign adversaries’ from interfering in our elections through apps like TikTok. Because of course, election interference from Twitter and Facebook is no problem at all, but election interference through TikTok is totally unacceptable.
But in reality, if you are opposed TikTok, as we are, this bill isn’t about banning TikTok, it is never about what they say it is.
Instead, this bill would give enormous and terrifying new powers to the federal government to punish American citizens and regulate how they communicate with one another.
