Social Media Is to Blame

Friday, November 17, 2023 @ 09:24 AM Social Media Is to Blame Hannah Meador The Stand Writer MORE

Another day for a viral video trend!

Recently, TikTok influencer Lynette Adkins took to social media and encouraged her followers to “stop what they’re doing and go read” something that would change their lives – Osama bin Laden’s “A Letter to America.”

Written with the pen of a mass murderer, a portion of the notorious letter reads:

“The creation and continuation of Israel is one of the greatest crimes, and you are the leaders of its criminals. And of course, there is no need to explain and prove the degree of American support for Israel. The creation of Israel is a crime which must be erased. Each and every person whose hands have become polluted in the contribution towards this crime must pay its price, and pay for it heavily.” (Emphasis added, and quote taken from this Fox News article.)

It comes as no shock that Adkins, a Pro-Palestinian supporter, as well as thousands of other influencer wannabes, went to the video-sharing site to share their shocking reactions and (unasked for) point of view, also dubbed “POV” videos.

In each of these disgusting and often foul-mouthed posts, young adults refer to the letter and express sympathy with the terrorist and those who shared his ideology. Many, including Adkins, explained how she was now “having an existential crisis.” Some even said, “It all makes sense now.”

The social media clips that most caught my attention were the “POV videos” comparing reactions to the news of bin Laden’s death in 2011 to 2023 after they read the letter. The later reaction was followed by a caption that said, “seeing his letter to America, knowin’ he was right.” These 20-somethings, most of whom were not alive when the attacks on America took place, are now solemnly joining together.

Another video’s content said, “Everything we learned about the Middle East, 9/11, and ‘terrorism’ was a lie.”

Just like that.

Because of a social media site, thousands of people rushed to read this letter written by a terrorist and their opinions were changed.

A piece of paper was used to justify a radical terrorist group that killed almost 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001?

I’d better watch my language. In this day and age, we can’t label terrorists as terrorists! That might hurt their genocidal feelings!

In a Fox News article, Adkins followed up her original post by adding:

“TikTok is going to save this generation,” Adkins claimed in videos following her initial charge to go read. “The amount of things that we’ve learned on this app in this past month alone that other people in other generations I tried to talk to them about it, they don’t understand. They don’t get it because they’ve been literally so programmed to think a certain way TikTok is undoing all of that. It’s crazy to watch in real-time.”

Is TikTok saving the Israeli babies who were massacred in their bedrooms? How about the women raped and murdered? The men tortured? What about the 9/11 widows? Does social media even care about the parentless children left in the wake of bin Laden’s terror?

The saddest part about it is that Adkins is right about one thing. These platforms are reprogramming Americans! All those years of history lessons and learning what’s right and wrong are being undone in videos less than two minutes long.

Forget about what’s historically accurate! It’s all about what TikTok, mainstream media, YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram have to offer our kids, teens, and young adults. They’re following them like clockwork.

History is being rewritten by the device you’re reading this blog on.

Oh, and if those influencers need a new radical letter to read, I recommend they check out an author named Paul. He’s got more than a few filled with helpful advice!

Come, Lord Jesus, come!
