Silicon Valley, u.s.a – The u.s. government is working to overthrow viral social media app, TikTok.
At the same time that Operation Legend in Chicago is cracking down on Black people in the streets, the u.s. government is moving the fight online, anywhere that people of color are getting organized.
The Chinese app, TikTok, exploded in popularity in the last year, with African and Colonized (POC) youth using the app to learn, connect with each other, and participate in dance trends – all in celebration of African, Asian, and Indigenous cultures.
On July 30, 2020, congress gathered a section of the white ruling class representing Google, Facebook, Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft. Colonizers in congress interrogated the tech giants to see if they were united with supporting this latest phase in amerikkka’s Cold War with China.
Tim Cook, the white gay CEO of Apple, proudly proclaimed, “Apple is a uniquely American company whose success is only possible in this country.”
The u.s. government used this event to organize and ensure unity among the capitalist-colonizer class. This united front is important to remember because amerikkka is waging a technology-based war with the People’s Republic of China.
‘If you look at where the top technology companies come from, a decade ago the vast majority were American. Today, almost half are Chinese.’ says alleged robot, Mark Zuckerberg

Mike Pompeo, secretary of state in the u.s., complained that TikTok could be “feeding data directly to the Chinese Communist Party, their national security apparatus.”
Colonizers are deathly afraid of the People’s Republic of China because they see that Socialism in China is rapidly becoming the largest economic and political power in the world. How both countries reacted to the COVID-19 pandemic is a strong indicator, where China’s economy grew by 3.2% since April, while amerikkka’s contracted by almost one third!
To be clear, although they complain publicly, the u.s. government doesn’t care at all about computer security. They want surveillance in order to spy on African and Colonized revolutionaries and protesters, and they don’t like that the Chinese Government is successfully fighting back against colonialism.
We’re seeing now that because TikTok is so successful (like other colonized-run tech companies, such as Huawei and ZTE), it’s starting to threaten the worldwide monopoly of colonizer-imperialist tech companies like Facebook and Twitter.
With the u.s. government’s help, Microsoft may even get a chance to “buy” TikTok, basically at gunpoint.
We can see the unity of the white ruling class in their attempt to exploit the entire world, slow down progress, remove competition, and bully colonized workers. Poor and working class colonized people need to do the same! We make up a vast majority of the world. The only response to organized violence is organized revolution!
