Instituting a draft to fight Germany and Japan would be a slap in the face to young voters.
Trans people to the front of the line please.
“We’ve already taken 41% casualties, and we haven’t even seen combat yet!”
There you go again, changing the definition of trench warfare.
I just barfed in my head
TikTok is a weaponized social app of mass destruction.
Pictured here: Draft Day
Lgbtqzxy rights are after all at the forefront of this administration foreign policy
Imagine the smell.
Low tide at the beach
Explosion at sewage treatment facility
i keep hearing that trans people are the bravest people of all. time to prove it.
Imagine an army of blue haired feminists, fags, trannys, and anxiety ridden children trying to invade your country. No wonder the push for drones and robotic war fighters.
Just pour some real milk in their soy latte. War is won in an instant.
United States Inc IS the wrong side. The people were tricked into jumping into the meat grinder, a tactic that is not going to work going forward. Hence drone warfare.
Funny thing is that Japan is one of the most westernized countries and it's actually our influence that increased their penchant for sexual activity, as they were even more traditionalist than we were.
I'm going to disagree with you here. McArthur made sure that Japan's constitution prohibit the export of pornography. Why do that if they didn't have a different mindset towards sex than the US? That's why all Japanese porn movies have been pixelated over the naughty bits that you can find in the US.
In those days it was heavily regulated here too...?
Pornography was illegal back in those days in the US. Stag films existed, but they were primarily produced by criminal organizations and was an underground thing. Then during the late '60s and '70s adult movie theaters started to appear in the seedier parts of the cities. The big moment when it went into the mainstream public was when the Linda Lovelace movie Deep Throat that was financed by the Mafia started being played in those adult theatres. Mob enforcers would extract a percentage of the ticket proceeds from the owners of the theatres or an accident just might happen.
good god, have you seen the manga and anime they have???
A lot of the manga and anime still has a lot of their traditions and mannerisms intact, things like honorifics and the value of becoming close and understanding when you aren't still exists.
But yes, a lot of depravity exists in Japan...and yet, still not as much as here nowadays.
Don't see any pussy hat parades there with dicks out and children made to watch.
My impression is that Japan does, at least, keep porn in its place - away from children. So yes, in that respect it is different over there.
Decades ago when I was young I looked at it out of curiosity. Not something that would titillate me, but I had to find out why there was always pixels. Japanese can be very weird.
now do Vietnam...
I think if we just draft 18-24 and send them all to Ukraine we'd cull the herd enough to secure elections for a long time.
The only reason we ever lose is because retards who just got the right to vote still haven't learned how to use their brains properly.
This is a total lobbying grift - a Biden connected lobbying firm is going after all the Dems to save TikTok's ass. We should be exposing this:
2019- TikTok gives next to nothing in campaign donations. Suddenly, they’re under the microscope for spying on users. Competitors who spy on their users (selling much of the data to the highest bidders, including governments) and who also give lots of campaign cash/lobbying dollars to the swamp stand to gain by knocking out a rival. Now TikTok spends millions toward, “lobbying”, and we all wait in anticipation to find whether our leaders will allow it in our markets. Did they pay enough to our corrupt government to avoid being called corrupt? We’ll see. I’m for free and fair trade, not this nit-picking of winners and losers based on how much they fork over to the DC mafia
I agree that the D.C. protection racket is utter trash, but even a stopped watch gives the right time twice a day. TikTok should have been banned 4 years ago when Trump was trying to get it done. Back then it was "racist", now it's "sound national security policy".
It's a C.C.P. wiretap into half the smartphones in America, and the Feds have allowed it for half a decade.
I totally agree. And the domestic apps of a similar nature are a wiretap for the deepstate. So if we’re going to crack down on spying, let’s make it universal is my point. It’s humiliating that the Europeans have more user privacy than US citizens, even though we have a 4th Amendment in our Bill of Rights that was never translated to the digital age
So you’re ok with governments, NGOs businesses, and anyone with enough cash to buy the data gathered from spying and data collection as long as naive idiots and kids click a button? I’m a little less receptive to that
I'm for freedom and against the government telling me what I can and cannot do, including what I can put on my phone. Freedom comes with risk.
The entire streamer/vlogger industry is built on browbeating viewers into sharing personal data by interacting with The Algorithm. I'm disturbed by the fundamental exploitative nature of the social media industry, but I'm even more disturbed at the sheer volume of retarded followers who are happily paying "content creators" to exploit them. The vendors of corruption only thrive because there's a demand for their products, and crooked politicians only thrive because degenerate losers keep voting for them. The problem isn't that the market is free, the problem is that useless idiots are free.
Protection Racket. "Funny should something happen to your website" capieche
Tiktok is garbage like anyone retarded enough to use it.
We used to until the mods thought it more prudent to pander to those frogposting teenagers who'd rather whine about how doing nothing is a virtue.
Was a better system when mods were at least funneling traffic to news sites for side payment. Now it's just mediocrity.
Edit - did I trigger people who still live with their parents?
If you spend 90% of your day watching an endless video stream of people twerking and dancing, the country would probably be better off with you not voting
Which is exactly why Democrats would hate it being banned.
I’m on Tik Tok, and have never seen ANY OF THOSE THINGS.
It’s really hard to describe how the algorithm works. If you download it and search Florida farming, puppy training, micro welding, aesthetics desk setup, horse jumping, church lighting setup, you’re not going to see that crap.
I probably go 3 weeks at a time without seeing a teenager or gay person.
Do you really only look in the mirror every 3 weeks?
kek! Why throw jokes at our own though. As it's true. The apps; YT, SC, TT all use cloud data from other phones to push algo's and manipulate what others view.
Getting downvotes but you're right. My TikTok feed is nothing but programming, 3D printing, DnD, clips of comedy specials, etc.
People who complain about it being nothing but little girls twerking showing they either never used it or outing their interests. I tend to default to assuming the latter.
Another User accused me of being gay or a teenager. Good gravy.
I have yet to hear a compelling reason TikTok is a problem or more so THAN WHAT WE ALL AGREE is wrong with META.
So whatcha gonna do Joe? The right thing or the popular thing?
I’ll give you two guesses and the first one doesn’t count…
I already know. LOL.
Joe has the mental capacity of a child. And that's insulting to children everywhere.
Neither does the second.
Don't need voters when you control the ballot printers!
Let's be honest, even if the right thing was the popular thing, the Democrats would start a multimillion dollar propaganda campaign to convince people it was the wrong thing and that they should hate it so the Democrats could still do the wrong thing. Then regardless of popularity, they would gaslight people about how overwhelming the support for their decision is.
Lol I remember years ago everyone was saying gen Z was going to be the most conservative generation in history. What a load.
this is confirmation that liberals are the plague
Another slap in the face is the lady cock in the women’s changing room at the YMCA.
Sigh... just ban it already. They'll just blame Trump anyway if it all goes wrong.
Young Democrat voters need a slap in the face.
Y'all can downvote me to hell but I love tiktok, my feed is like a 24/7 Trump train. You think every other app including the stuff that came with your phone doesn't give full access to any government that's willing to pay the right price or have the right tools?
They are going after tiktok because it's taking revenue from YouTube, meta and Instagram. Dems are caught between bowing down to big tech or staying connected to young voters.
The Dems are also using it as an opportunity to push for more censorship of these platforms to "protect the children".
This makes a lot more sense than the whole spying angle.
The owner of Tiktok is ByteDance and the CEO is Zhang Yiming who is from Singapore. So while being Chinese, he isn't the Chinese government. Tiktok "spies" on us in the same way Google/FB spy by harvesting your data and selling it.
Also, because they aren't censoring what our banana republic wants censored, it is another avenue to see things that's harder to find. Protests in other countries, like the Dutch farmers, Canadian truckers, and more I was watching on TikTok.
do what you want. tik tok is absolutely most invasive tho. if you give away your privacy...
Are you a shill? What privacy are you talking about? Do you work on a nuclear sub? What are they collecting that Facebook isn’t?
I was chatting with some friends outside one day, someone mentioned they like sugar cane from the island they grew up on. ONE DAY LATER sugar cane ads popped up in my Facebook feed. I have never googled or searched for such a thing in my life.
None of us had our phones out and on.
Are you a social media addict?
Because I use two apps? No. I’m perfectly fine without it, it just provides a utility like my dishwasher.
I use Facebook for one thing and TikTok for informational short form hobbyist videos sprinkled with comedy.
They collect more than any other popular app.
How do you know that is true.
I’m not kidding you sound like the Covidians on Reddit and Nextdoor that made blanket statements about how deadly Covid was and we all HAD TO MASK UP
TrumpTok is fun, but I would gladly nuke it to piss off some commies.
I was on it for a few months back in 2020 and I admit I liked it too. I found The Donald through tiktok. Someone posted a link to here on a video addressing the election fraud, and I've been here ever since.
But I pulled the plug on tiktok.
Oh my God ur right brb gonna go kill myself lmao
Instant tooting is what my butt hole does when I eat Taco Bell
Young Dem voters need a good slap
They deserve more than a slap. Gallows, some of them.
How about we give those little shits something they want. We send them to fight in Ukraine
If your vote depends on whether or not they ban your favorite app, you shouldn't be voting anyway.
Far from the first single issue voting topic for either side.
A slap on the face is what the western world needs. Better than a bullet to the back of the head.
If the Biden administration wants to ban TikTok, I say keep it.
What I've learned from the past decade, is if the establishment democrats are pushing a narrative, do the opposite.
I wonder what will happen when democrats start to say we need to bring god and Jesus back into our everyday lives?
Trump also wanted to ban tiktok. Biden admin put the kibosh on his efforts. Now they're changing their tune?
Biden Administration Pauses Trump's TikTok Ban, Backs Off Pressure To Sell App
Yes. Tiktok is one of the only apps the big media companies do not control. A lot of information gets put through on tiktok that other apps ban.
Considering the current state of "churches", that may not be far off.
Guys, the propaganda against TikTok is REAL I am amazed how many here have completely been swallowed by it. TikTok is not your enemy. TikTok collects far fewer data than Google/Facebook and so on. They censor less. They have more free reign of content, including pro-Trump, pro-Kari Lake, pro Conservative movement content.
TikTok censors the LEAST of all social media platforms (with exception of maybe Twitter now). I am inundated with pro Trump content, conservatives, anti-Democrat stuff.
TikTok is taking over and killing the competition, and it's not even close. You know what Google has in direct competition to TikTok? Youtube Shorts. Guess what replaces TikTok if it is banned? YouTube shorts... except now it's basically TikTok by Google, with mass cancellation and censorship controls.
Politicians want it banned for these 2 reasons:
Direct competition to Google/Facebook who have bought and paid for the politicians, and they want their main competitor canceled.
Lack of direct control of censorship, which upsets them.
The politicians are pathetic. Wake up. TiKTok is not just people dancing. If that is all you see, that's because that is all you are watching, so it recommends only that to you. This is why politicians should be embarrassed when they say that that is what they are seeing. My feed is filled with Conservative politics, pro Trump stuff, history, antique collecting cause I like it, and religion talk. That's it. Because, that is what I like.
I really hope people here wake up to this and realize that politicians on the left and the right are bought and paid for by Google and it will be worth tens of billions of dollars to Google to get TikTok banned.
Thank you been trying to say this. You hit the nail on the head. It was literally proven Facebook/meta spent millions upon millions to create this narrative. You need to be in the right algos on tik tok. And it doesn't take long. Yes it unfortunately is being used to brainwash. But it's good FAR OUTWEIGHS the bad and what we will have without it. It's awakening my normie friends.
Many tik tok creators are literally flipping the script and using their shit brainwash tools against them.
EDIT: Actually reading through this thread I'm inclined to think a lot of those Facebook bots are on here posting. Fuck off clowns.
Ban that shit it sucks
Do they push an online privacy campaign educating people about the importance of privacy? No, that would probably make people a little harder to spy on.
Gen Z could use a good slap to the face.
Drawing a line in the sand over a Chinese media company?
CCP indoctrination, of our youth, has worked out better than they ever dreamed of.
Let me translate this to adult. The current elite to use the platform have the attention span shorter than a gold fish.
I'd ban that shit from my house a long time ago tiktok is evil ban it now
Young democrats don't vote. Dead people do
Lol, Chyna is trying to enlist the retard demographic to save their little app.
It wouldn't nearly be enough of the slap in the face that they need.
Well, I can’t think of a group that could use a slap in the face more than “young democratic voters”.
Press S to slap
As much as I hate it, this has more to do with 'them' not being able to control things on it.
And there’s one of the problems, in plain language:
Maybe “young Democratic voters” could use a slap in the face. For most of them, it’d likely be the first time anyone ever slapped them in the face, on their wrist, or anywhere where their fragile feelings might get hurt.
Gen Z should be "GenoZided" for voting for pedophiles.
If this doesn't show you they don't give a shit about the country then nothing will. The entire Left side of that generation are commies.
