1776 Action Spox. Van Fleet: Ban TikTok From Schools!
Following up on her Fox News op-ed late last week, 1776 Action Senior Fellow Xi Van Fleet joined Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo early this week to explain why TikTok is a blatant tool of CCP indoctrination. You can watch the full clip below.
Drawing on her harrowing experience surviving Mao’s “Cultural Revolution” in China, Xi argues that while parents should be aware of what their children are being exposed to, schools should also take action to ban the app from classrooms.
“I saw first-hand growing up in China during Mao’s Cultural Revolution how ruthless the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was in its drive to reprogram the minds of young people in order to create political and social upheaval,” Xi says.
“For citizens and lawmakers concerned about stopping the indoctrination of our children, particularly in schools, ensuring TikTok has no place in classrooms, as some institutions have already done, is a vital and long-overdue step.”
Xi also warns that “TikTok has also become a haven for the progressive left to push Marxist racial and gender ideologies… Hundreds of popular accounts reach tens of millions of young people every day and promote the same poisonous ideologies that parents have fought so hard to remove from classrooms.”
