Leftist propaganda machine Vice News is upset with a new trend found on the Chinese-owned Tik-Tok. The surveillance social media app, which is usually full of insane leftists and half-naked women jumping about, has videos dedicated to Christianity that Vice does not like. 

Vice News author Tess Owens has deemed the rise of Christian Tik-Toks as “fascist propaganda” that needs to be stopped.

Owens worries that young men becoming devout in the Christian faith instead of the cult of progressivism will lead to the rise of fascist America! Most videos involve modern, fast-paced edits with bible verses and images of Jesus. These edits usually allude to a struggle between good and evil and the imperative to get right with God. Owens detests that. 

“Their videos, like most others in this genre, stop short of making explicit references to violence, but they incorporate coded allusions to it through the imagery of past religious wars or pop-culture references,” she writes. “The result is a murky collection of problematic content where it’s not always easy to tell how far the creator wants their followers to go — which is especially concerning given the uptick in real-world violence committed by Christian nationalists.” Owens promotes the myth that Christians are domestic terrorists and shows that even a video stating “Return to Christ” is akin to saying “Heil Hitler.”

Owens goes beyond simply lumping these Christians as terrorists; she actively flaunts Vice’s role in taking these accounts down. “TikTok removed accounts flagged by VICE News after a request for comment. “TikTok stands firmly against violence online and off,” a company spokesperson said. “We remove content and accounts that seek to glorify or promote violence, violent groups, or militias, and continually look for ways to strengthen our policies and enforcement and collaborate with experts and civil society organizations. Our goal is to foster a welcoming and safe place for creative expression and entertainment." But, of course, when a user promotes child grooming and mutilation in the name of progress, that is perfectly alright. 

The use of the crusaders and famous movie characters such as Patrick Bateman from American Psycho sent Owens and even the Tik Tok staff into meltdown. “TikTok says their moderators regularly undergo training to help them identify the latest symbols, terms, and offensive stereotypes that could be described as “hateful behavior,” she writes. Using Christian imagery is deemed hateful behavior, but the people who rally violence against conservatives have free reign on the platform. That makes sense, right?

Owens and the writers at Vice are upset that young men actively seek out Christianity instead of whatever degeneracy they are promoting. Like so many leftist colleagues, whenever things go array, play the fascist card.
