Chinese Consulate in Houston Intervened & supported BLM in US Political Movement; helped by Huawei and TikTok?

#China‘s consulate in #Houston promoted riot techniques among BlackLivesMatter  protesters through social media micro-targeting:

Radio Free Asia (RFA) published an article explaining the reason that the U.S. closed China’s Consulate in Houston.

The article stated that the U.S. has known that the staff members at the consulate were conducting suspicious activities, but, for a while, it did not take any action. The Second Department of China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA), which is the PLA’s intelligence unit, sent staff members from a large network company, with fake IDs, to China’s Consulate in Houston. Those technicians used a large video platform’s backend data to identify people who might participate in the Black Lives Matter (BLM) and ANTIFA’s protests and then created and sent them customized videos on how to organize riots and how to do promotions.

The purpose was to “weaponize” big data technology. It delivered relevant materials precisely to those people who were most likely to participate in the protests, while other people could not even find those videos.

RFA did not spell out the company names. A Twitter account said the technicians were from Huawei and the video platform they used to identify candidates and push videos to was TikTok.

The Trump administration blacklisted the Chinese firm over security concerns last year. The US government has now announced further crackdowns, this time restricting the type of hardware that the tech giant can access.

The US government is expanding restrictions on Chinese technology company Huawei, the Trump administration announced on Monday, in a move aimed at cracking down on its access to commercial computer chips.

The administration added 38 companies to the “entity list” of firms considered to pose a risk to either US national security or foreign policy interests. It takes the total number of Huawei affiliates on the list up to 152. Huawei itself was added in May 2019.
