China’s New Censorship Sidekick: Apple Inc.
|Apple Inc. has sold out to Communist China. A new report reveals that the Big Tech titan is helping the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) censor Chinese citizens and access their personal data. |
Over the past four years, Apple has caved to China’s demands and blocked thousands of apps—including one that helps people promote democracy—from China’s app store, while hosting apps from the same people who are committing genocide against the Uighurs. There’s more: Apple is also reportedly handing over the private emails, contacts, locations, and photos of its Chinese customers to the CCP.
These actions fly in the face of the principles Apple claims to defend. Less than a year ago, Apple touted its “uncompromising commitment” to customer privacy and respect for human rights. And just last month, Apple condemned Georgia’s voting law as undemocratic—all while helping China destroy democracy.
As Amb. Nikki Haley says, this hypocrisy is absolutely unacceptable. Big Tech companies have a choice whether to stand by the principles they claim to support. Apple’s making the wrong one.
