NBC News targets Libs of TikTok with hit piece accusing her of inspiring ‘bomb threats’

Feb 8, 2024 | Political News

Chaya Raichik, as Libs of TikTok, has made it her mission to expose schools, teachers, and administrators that provide children and teens with materials, classes, or experiences that groom them into adult sexual lifestyles and gender ideology. But for NBC, this constitutes a threat to those schools and is literally violence.

NBC believes her exposes are so problematic that they reached out to law enforcement to ask them if they thought bomb threat hoaxes in their communities could have been inspired by Raichik's posts. The author of the article attempting to link Riachik to the bomb threat hoaxes, David Ingram, appeared on NBC to state his case. He indicated that it was his intent to provide law enforcement with examples of posts from Libs of TikTok that correlated with threats in their communities.

“NBC is now openly saying it,” Libs of TikTok posted. “Their goal is to frame me for b*mb threats and get law enforcement to investigate me. NBC News is siccing the FBI on me. This is how they’re going to try to silence me. Unbelievable.” She has also been targeted by many other outlets that don't approve of her reposting liberal content for a conservative audience. Raichik has received threats herself.

“So David, have any charges been brought against specific individuals who made these threats?” Ingram is asked. “Is there any scenario where law enforcement is looking at the owner of this account, Chaya Raichik, and saying okay, maybe we can hold her responsible for some of these incidents? I mean, investigating a bomb threat, it takes up a lot of police resources, it traumatizes people who are at the other end of that, what sort of consequences could there be here?”

“That's right, Allison,” Ingram replied. “Every law enforcement officer I spoke to, up to the FBI, talked about how much, how many resources these threats take up, even when they turn out to be hoaxes. Now, it's important to note that Chaya herself is not a suspect in any of these bomb threats. The accusation from victims and from law enforcement is that she has helped to inspire or spark these threats by essentially creating a list for someone, or multiple people, to go through and and pick potential targets.”

None of the 33 incidents picked by NBC have been linked by law enforcement to Libs of TikTok in any way. NBC admits that there is no evidence to back up this claim. “While the direct inspirations for the threats are not known,” NBC writes, “the timing suggests that Libs of TikTok posts have been used to pick targets.”

Yet when NBC contacted the FBI, the FBI did not give any indication as to the status of the 33 incidents NBC attempted to link to Libs of TikTok posts, and did not at all mention the account or Raichik.

Ingram alleged anyway that officials in California, Oklahoma, Minnesota and Oregon all “believe Raichik sparked threats in their localities with her posts on social media that digitally heckle people such as drag performers, LGBTQ teachers and doctors who treat transgender patients.” 

Police, Ingram said, do not have suspects in these cases but that the intention behind providing a timeline of her posts that correlate to threats is to accuse her of providing reasons for locations to be targeted. In essence, isn't NBC doing to Libs of TikTok exactly what they accuse Riachik of doing, in providing correlation, not causation, between posts and threats?

NBC recounts bomb threats made at schools or hospitals that Libs of TikTok has exposed and then blames the threats not on the schools' secretive “education” practices, but on Raichik for making those practices public. NBC takes as its first case study a school in Coralville, Iowa, saying that a bomb threat was made against a school in that community. “Law enforcement quickly determined that the threat was a hoax,” they write, then say that the local detective, Hanna Dvorak, thinks the bomb threat was Raichik's fault.

“It appears this all stems from a post made earlier this week by Chaya Raichik and her ‘Libs of TikTok’ account,” Dvorak said in a report, per NBC. NBC admits fully that Raichik did not make a bomb threat, that Raichik exposed the local junior high school for providing a book that “teaches kids about gay sex,” but goes on to blame Raichik anyway. Speculation from Dvorak, per NBC, is that one of the 2.8 million followers of the Libs of TikTok account “could have had a role in the bomb threat.”

In other words, if you expose bad actors in education, you are guilty of the possible actions of others who may have a problem with those actions. NBC then goes on to make the spurious claim that Raichik is to blame for the actions of those in other towns and cities as well, all because she exposed educators, administrators and schools that provide pornographic materials, teach inappropriate subject matter, or perform drag for children and teens.

In fact, there were only three cases among the 33 identified by NBC in which charges had been pursued, and, in none of those cases, was Libs of TikTok mentioned. These include hoax threats made to Boston Children's Hospital, which was exposed in 2022 to be performing sex change surgeries on minors, from double mastectomies on girls to castration and vaginoplasty on 17-year-old boys.

The hospital later denied that this was happening, but documentation from their own website showed that this was in practice. The activities of Boston Children's Hospital were reported on at length by The Post Millennial. Raichik amplified that reporting. NBC lied about the hospital at the time, saying that the hospital did not perform genital reconstruction surgeries on minors, despite the hospital's own records on their website and videos made to promote their sex change clinic for minors.

NBC also discussed the arrest of a minor who had been charged with making a bomb threat to an Oregon middle school, and attempted to blame Raichik for that. Those threats were made after a video went viral showing a trans-identified male student brutally beating a female student inside the school. Charges were also filed against the trans student accused of beating the girl. The girl's parents said at the time that they would pursue legal action. That video was posted by women's athletics advocate Riley Gaines and the incident was reported on locally and by Andy Ngo.

NBC goes on to blame Raichik, a Jewish woman, for inspiring white supremacists in Idaho to riot at a Pride event featuring drag queens performing for children in June 2022. Five men were sentenced to five days in jail with a year of unsupervised probation. NPR tried to blame Libs of TikTok for the actions of these men, too, simply because Raichik, among many others, posted about the upcoming drag performances for children at the Pride event in Idaho.

“The charging documents associated with those prosecutions,” NBC notes, “did not mention either Libs of TikTok or Raichik.”

Libs of TikTok is an account that essentially reposts content made by leftists and liberals who are proud of their behavior. The account amplified a post of a mayor in California being spanked in his office by a drag queen. The mayor had posted the photos himself. He claims he was “targeted” when the photos were reposted. The content posted by Raichik is publicly available. What Libs of TikTok does, however, is take the content, and the information, from where it appears in liberal online spheres and expose it to those in conservative spheres. Liberals then feel threatened when their indecent behavior is exposed to those who still have respect for the innocence of childhood.
