STEVEN CROWDER (HOST): TikTok is not -- it's not banned in the States yet. You know where it is banned? China. China.

GERALD MORGAN: I had no idea.

CROWDER: It's not allowed in China for different reasons, because all the trans, you know, infiltration that happens there where people want you to text them on TikTok, slide into their DMs so your parents don't know and they can encourage you to transition. They believe that will poison the minds of the youth in China.


So they don't allow it in China, but now they want to lobby the United States to allow it because they know the irreparable damage that it can do to young people. And by the way, yep, I am more of a libertarian, but one of the few legitimate roles of government, to be clear, and this is something that you can use when people say, oh, so you're a conservative? What about roads? What about the military?

The role of the government - certainly the one legitimate role is to protect its citizens both from exterior and interior threats, and I would say Chinese propaganda and some content that they won't even allow in their country because they've seen the studies, they know the irreparable damage. Yeah, I would say that that's a legitimate --that falls under the legitimate purview of government, to prevent and eliminate that threat. By eliminate, I mean the app.
