In recent weeks, we’ve seen a movement within Congress to confront China’s influence over American children. The communist state controls all the companies within its borders, including the one that runs the popular social app, TikTok. Many U.S. leaders have warned that China is using this app to spy on Americans.
But more than that, the communist government has control over what can be displayed on TikTok. They can even remove things they don’t like, to ensure American children don’t see them. Now, a top Democrat in the Senate is blowing the whistle on China, even as Joe Biden and the rest of the party do nothing.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) blasted TikTok for pulling ads warning about the dangers of fentanyl and drug usage off of the app and stated that the move by TikTok to remove the ads from their platform shows that the app doesn’t have the best interest of America’s youth or the American public in mind and argued that behavior like this “doesn’t happen in China.”
Manchin said, “They don’t have the best interest of the American youth or the American public. I’ll guarantee you this doesn’t happen in China. I’ll guarantee that.”

Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin blasted China-owned TikTok for taking down ads that warned about fentanyl. The ads were run by a West Virginia-based organization called GameChanger. The ads warned TikTok users that even a small dose of the drug can kill someone.
Yet, for some reason, the China-controlled company that owns TikTok banned the ads. Is China trying to prevent American teens from learning about the dangers of fentanyl? This looks really bad for China. After all, fentanyl is made in Chinese labs and smuggled into the U.S. via Biden’s open border.
Is TikTok trying to protect this evil drug trade, by taking down this ad? Why else remove an ad trying to warn users of the dangers of an illegal, deadly drug?
And why is Joe Manchin the only Democrat raising the alarm over this app? Numerous Democrats, including House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, have called on America to ban the app. But some Democrats, including most of the far-left “squad” deny that TikTok is dangerous.
(Perhaps that has something to do with the fact they are getting money from this company?)
We know that Biden is unlikely to do anything about China, without strong pressure from Americans. Why does he seem more concerned with helping communists, than Americans?
- Joe Manchin called out TikTok for banning an ad warning about fentanyl.
- This comes as Republicans warn about the dangers of this China-owned app.
- Democrats, including Joe Biden, refuse to confront China’s deadly influence.
