TikTok receives support from unlikely source
Republican Senator Rand Paul rejects ban
Troubled social notworking app TikTok, which is facing worldwide bans because of potential links to the Chinese government has found an unlikely ally in Senator Rand Paul.
A small but growing number of Democrats and Republicans have raised concerns, citing free speech and other issues and have objected to legislation targeting TikTok as overly broad. Republican Senator Josh Hawley said this week he hoped to get unanimous consent for a TikTok ban bill.
However, Paul thought that the whole plan was daft saying that his fellow Republicans have come up with a national strategy to lose elections for a generation permanently by banning a social media app called TikTok that 94 million, primarily young Americans, use.
In an opinion piece published in the Louisville, Kentucky's Courier-Journal Paul said that China's government already bans TikTok and it was probably not a good idea to emulate China's speech bans.
"If you don't like TikTok or Facebook or YouTube, don't use them. But don't think any interpretation of the Constitution gives you the right to ban them."
While Paul is at it, he might want to look at preventing his Republican chums from banning books, Disney movies about black kids facing white racism and coursework on Michelangelo’s David.
