So much for a ban. Team Biden to hire 100s of TikTok stars to help indoctrinate ‘young voters’

Following President Biden’s threat to ban TikTok for government employees, his team is now hiring hundreds of TikTok stars and social media influencers to indoctrinate young American voters so they can follow Democrats off a cliff like a bunch of lemmings in the next presidential election.

Despite proclaiming that TikTok should be banned and wagging his finger at the Chinese over it, the president evidently doesn’t see it as a security threat after all. It’s just too good not to use as a propaganda outlet to sway impressionable voters. It falls right in line with Democrats trying to lower the voting age to 16.

Axios reporter Sophia Cai broke the news right on cue, “NEW: President Biden is enlisting hundreds of TikTok stars and social media influencers to promote his political messaging to young voters — and may give them their own briefing room at the White House.”

She further tweeted, “A measure of the importance the White House is placing on its digital strategy: Rob Flaherty, who leads the effort, has been named assistant to the president — the same rank as the White House communications director and press secretary. Four full-time WH staffers are focused on influencers and independent content creators.”

We’re trying to reach young people, but also moms who use different platforms to get information and climate activists and people whose main way of getting information is digital,” Deputy White House Chief of Staff Jen O’Malley Dillon stated, referencing the battle to unseat former President Trump who is dominant on social media.

Not all social media influencers who made Biden’s list are thrilled by it. In fact, some want off it, stat.

Boston College professor Heather Cox Richardson, who has a widely read Substack page and a huge Twitter following, is one of those who want her name disassociated with the White House “influencers” project.

“@SophiaCai99, could you please take my name out of this story? Would love to know where you heard I’m part of this because it’s certainly news to me,” she asked Cai after reading that she was included in the influencers’ list.

The news on Biden’s threatened ban on TikTok came from CNN weeks ago, reporting, “The Biden administration has threatened to ban TikTok from the United States unless the app’s Chinese owners agree to spin off their share of the social media platform, TikTok acknowledged Wednesday evening.”

“The apparent ultimatum by a US multiagency panel known as the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) marks a possible turning point in the long-running negotiations between federal officials concerned about TikTok’s links to China and a wildly popular social media company with more than 100 million US users,” CNN reported.

Biden’s hypocrisy on TikTok ironically did not go unnoticed on social media:
