Tucker Carlson: Apple Secretly Censors on Behalf of China

Apple is headquartered in Cupertino, California, and technically run by American executive Tim Cook. Despite its U.S. grounding, founding, leadership, and receipt of American subsidies to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars every year, the tech giant’s loyalties are in serious doubt.

The company’s recent efforts to aid China’s communist regime in quashing dissent and putting down a peaceful anti-lockdown movement have prompted some to suggest that Apple takes its marching orders from a genocidal foreign power.

Hours after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) suggested that Apple is “serving basically as a vassal to the Chinese Communist Party,” Fox News’ Tucker Carlson took to the airwaves to excoriate the California-based tech giant, suggesting that “Apple’s loyalty is to the government of China.”

On Tuesday night, Carlson suggested that while it is not manifestly clear whether the American news media is compromised by a hostile foreign power, “we know for a fact that Apple is covering for the government of China.”

Despite benefiting from its U.S. rooting, “Apple is in no sense American,” said Carlson.

Carlson referenced how the company dutifully helped the communist regime crush dissent by disabling its AirDrop feature in China. Protesters and critics of the CCP were thus prevented from communicating directly with one another and circumnavigating the regime’s communication controls.

“Without permanent AirDrop, it’s effectively impossible for freedom-minded citizens to organize with one another. They’re powerless,” said Carlson.

For having killed AirDrop in China and helped to silence critics of the CCP, Carlson claimed that “Apple is now an active collaborator with China’s murderous police state. When tanks roll into a Chinese city, Apple is rooting for the tanks.”

The cable host appeared to be in concurrence with Florida’s Republican governor, who told Fox News on Tuesday that the company is working with the state to shut down “people in China that are really engaged in a noble effort to protest what is basically Leninist rule.”

Meanwhile, in the U.S., DeSantis said Apple is “trying to get Elon Musk’s Twitter off the App Store potentially, which would be a huge blow for free speech.”

This is not the first time Apple has helped the CCP censor and police the Chinese people.

The Citizen Lab at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy issued a report last year indicating “that Apple censors political content including broad references to Chinese leadership and China’s political system, names of dissidents and independent news organizations, and general terms relating to religions, democracy, and human rights.”

This censorship campaign undertaken by Apple on behalf of the CCP “bleeds into both Hong Kong and Taiwan. Much of this censorship exceeds Apple’s legal obligations in Hong Kong, and we are aware of no legal justification for the political censorship of content in Taiwan.”

    Never owned a piece of Apple garbage. Never will. We needs to ruin these Company’s. They’re Anti America and Anti World Populations.

  • Larry Bowling says:

    Here is a real opportunity for “we the people” to teach yet another company (Apple) that when they go against American citizens, we will use our biggest weapon against you to show you who is really in charge! That big weapon that we the people have is OUR WALLETS! We simply will curtail our purchases of your products and services and do business with alternative companies who respect our country and its citizens. Granted it may take some time before Apple feels the affects of our huge wallet weapon, but rest assured that Apple will feel the hurt in the long term.
    WAKE UP AMERICA AND CURTAIL YOUR PURCHASES OF APPLE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES UNTIL THEY STOP SUPPORTING THE COMMUNIST REGIMES!!!

    While I like my iPhone 12 smartphone because it works with all my medical appliances I will be looking for a new smartphone next time I purchase one, In the past most if not all smartphones did not work very well with medical appliances now that serval years have passed I shall look into some of the other manufacturers.

    Apple may be an American company but it is all Chinese controlled. Don’t buy Apple products which support the Chinese government…. That Chinese Apple you paid $1K for probably cost $25 to make in China. Big profit for Apple to be Chinese partner.
