It is highly concerning and disturbing that the Chinese-owned platform TikTok is promoting an ideology of violence that glorifies and supports Osama bin Laden and the deeply disturbing events which he perpetrated, like the massacre of innocent people on 9/11. This worrying trend is the result of dangerous leftist belief that the “oppressed” are always to be supported, no matter what evil and unprovoked actions they take.
X user End Wokeness shared an appalling video showing misguided TikTok users justifying the 9/11 attacks based on the deceitful ‘Letter to America’ written by bin Laden. Many of those misled by this poison declared that they “complete[ly] understand” bin Laden’s letter – a cruel reminder of how damaging and poisonous words can be if taken out of context. The Guardian newspaper even removed the letter from their website in response to the worrying trend.
TikTok has now rehabilitated Osama Bin Laden. 9/11 was justified and an act of resistance, they say.
Journalist Megyn Kelly noted this disturbing pattern of behavior, stating “Trust me when I tell you that the majority of Americans – this generation and the next – will fight to defeat the pernicious lunacy you’ve unleashed”. She also rightly pointed to responsibility of education, and called out the parents of the monstrous perpetrators.
Unfortunately, the belief in the “oppressed” group always being noble is not the only issue this trend has exposed. The fact that Chinese-owned TikTok is fuelling these dangerous ideologies raises further questions and concerns.
This trend is a warning sign of the times – that the belief in ruthless extermination over those who oppose our beliefs continues to be glorified and find a platform of support.
The tragedy of 9/11 should not be forgotten or distorted. Those that were responsible for such an atrocity should never be remembered as heroes or celebrated. This trend on TikTok is a reminder of how information can be twisted and how quickly a person’s sense of morality can be thrown into disarray if exposed to the wrong message.
To the parents of all of these losers suddenly persuaded by the deranged musings of the man who murdered 3k American innocents: you failed. You were likely boozing, marching for some L-wing cause and/or simply ignoring your kids. You failed to teach wrong from right, a proper…
