The bipartisan plot to save TikTok –

Banning TikTok is “racist” and “totalitarian”? Only if you ask the fringe voices on the left and right. While these voices have less to do with principle than with politics, they are growing louder and jeopardizing Washington’s best chance yet of targeting Beijing’s Trojan Horse app.

Days before TikTok CEO Shou Chew testified before Congress, Rep. Jamaal Bowman (DN.Y.) denounced Washington’s scrutiny as “xenophobic.” His colleague, Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wisconsin) called it a “witch hunt.” Days after the hearing, CNN published a story suggesting that banning TikTok would make Asian Americans more vulnerable to hate crimes. One of his sources was the chairman of the Committee of 100, an organization that allegedly has ties to the United Front influence operations of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
