Watch: Right-wing provocateurs call TikTok a 'social contagion' brainwashing kids to 'become trans'

Right-wing Daily Wire commentator Charlie Kirk and Libs of TikTok founder Chaya Raihick proclaimed on Wednesday that the popular Chinese app TikTok is "programming" children to be transgender, which is an inherent trait and not a choice.

"Do you think that the rising amount of kids identifying as trans is largely because of TikTok?" Kirk asked Raichick, whose account is notorious for its anti-LGBTQ+ content.

"Yes, it is. I think it is absolutely a social contagion, and I think TikTok is a big driver of that," Raichick said.

"Tell, so, about 45 seconds. Explain to the older listeners that might be skeptical of that. Why, they say, how could somebody become trans because of social media?" Kirk pressed Raichick.

"Well, the idea of TikTok is, is to target kids, right? You don't, you don't see really a lot of older people on it. It's a, it's very kid friendly and they, the Chinese, um, algorithm, they feed this stuff specifically to American kids," Raichick replied. "So they're feeding these trans activist content, you know, telling kids, look, go on puberty blockers. You might be the opposite gender. Uh, maybe you'll be happier. And I, I believe that it's a really sophisticated algorithm that's directly feeding this to our children."

Kirk agreed.

"That's exactly right. I, I just want everyone to understand. I mean, look, TikTok, owned by the Chinese Communist Party, the, we, we don't have, we, we have enough evidence for me to say this," Kirk declared. "I, I, on good authority, believe, and I think any rational person would that the Chinese Communist Party military installations are programming the algorithm to make our children more likely to be trans, to try to get young men to be ashamed of their country."

Kirk did not specify who the "good authority" is or what "evidence" exists to substantiate his allegations.

"The CCP has a gateway into every single one of our kids via TikTok," the provocateur continued. "Why are we putting up with that? That's a political question. We're gonna answer that."
