Democrats and the White House have previously been exposed as abusing the Chinese-owned social media network. Additionally, they appear to use well-known TikTokers to convey their talking points in an authentic manner.
A lawyer who posts videos on TikTok claims that the “Good Information Project,” a nonprofit organization run by Dems that was established to disseminate “truthful” information with the goal to “save democracy,” approached him and offered him $400 to create a video denouncing the riots of January 6, 2020.
According to the National Pulse:
Rick Stengel, who served as the National Constitution Center’s CEO from 2004 to 2006 and as Pres. Obama’s Sec. of State for Public Affairs from 2014 to 2016 is the project’s director.
Stengel, a former editor of Time magazine who has freely acknowledged “I’m not so much against propaganda,” is reportedly employing similar strategies to moderate disapproving news about Trump and Jan 6th.
The problem was that TikToker’s anti-Trump messaging had to utilize extremely precise terminology.
The phrase “criminal conspiracy” was to be used in place of “attempted coup,” “treason,” or “insurrection,” among other crucial phrases.
Additionally, the Tiktoker was told to say “Trump Republicans” rather than “Trump and his supporters.”
Instead of a “hearing” or “trial,” he was to refer to the event on January 6 as an “investigation.” He was also instructed to refer to the situation as an “assault on our country.”
The TikToker said, “The part that surprised me the most was this section when I was advised to talk about the elements of the Trump campaigns’ ‘plan’ and I was supposed to claim that the Trump campaign spent literally millions of dollars to accomplish January 6th.”
Democrats have been removed from office before for using TikTok to propagate false information. The White House “informed” TikTok influencers on talking points about Ukraine earlier this year.
The U.S. government briefed the TikTok influencers on “strategic goals in the region,” with the members of the National Security Council and Jen Psaki, the White House press sec. at the time, responding to “questions on delivering aid to Ukrainians, collaborating with NATO, and how the U.S. would respond to a Russian use of nuclear weapons.”
White House head of digital strategy Rob Flaherty stated, “We know this is a vitally important route in how the American public is finding out about the latest. Therefore, we wanted to ensure that you had the most recent information from an official source.”
The vacuous social media stars claimed to have been affected by the propaganda blitz because after the conference, “they felt more equipped to combat falsehoods and effectively communicate about the issue.”
