Lawmaker Warns ‘TikTok Ban’ Will Allow Elites To Ban Independent Media

Rep. Thomas Massie has warned that the new bill designed to ban TikTok is actually a trojan horse that will give the globalist elites the power to ban independent media from the internet.

“The so-called TikTok ban is a trojan horse” Massie declared on Tuesday. “The President will be given the power to ban WEB SITES, not just Apps.”

“The person breaking the new law is deemed to be the U.S. (or offshore) INTERNET HOSTING SERVICE or App Store, not the ‘foreign adversary.’” reports: Massie then focused on a specific exclusion in the bill.

Similarly, X boss Elon Musk echoed Massie’s sentiment by saying the new law enables government censorship.

Earlier this week, former President Donald Trump also came out against the ban on TikTok by saying the move would empower Facebook, whom he considers “an enemy of the people.”

“Without TikTok, you can make Facebook bigger,” said Trump to CNBC Monday. “And I consider Facebook to be an enemy of the people, along with a lot of the media.”

Massie has a track record of calling out government overreach.

In November, Massie also raised the alarm of a failed effort to stop a federal mandate that would require all vehicles sold after 2026 to be equipped with a kill switch.
