Despite being one of America’s largest companies, Apple is proving their allegiance lies with the Communist Chinese Party, taking massive action to help stymie the on-going protests occurring in China.
Major cities across China have erupted with massive protests over the regime’s brutal ‘Zero COVID’ policy, marking the largest uprising against the CCP in more than 30 years.
With Beijing taking action to squash the protest, it seems as though Apple has helped them silence the Chinese citizens fighting for their freedom.
The protestors had been using Apple’s Airdrop feature in order to circumvent some of the censorship tactics deployed by the CCP, and Apple quickly halted Chinese user’s ability to use the feature altogether.
Apple has reportedly helped Beijing suppress dissent on numerous occasions mostly by complying with its requests to remove apps used by protestors for information and communication, but also by helping the CCP ban VPNs in the region.
When listening to the company’s CEO, Tim Cook, express admiration for the brutal communist nation, it’s really no surprise whose side they would take.
Cook has said that China has done an “excellent job” in lifting people from poverty, claiming they’ve done better than any other country and that’s something we should all be “applauding.”
Cook even peddles CCP propaganda by saying that they’re leaders in fighting the climate fight – despite the fact that they are the worst polluting nation in the world.
