The creator of Libs of Tik Tok, Chaya Raichik, released a fiery response on Thursday after multiple left-wing media outlets published hit pieces suggesting that she is a “terrorist” for standing up against child sex changes. Raichik's response even received praise from X owner, Elon Musk.
In the video published to X, Raichik said that these left-wing journalists asserted that her work is both “dangerous” and “violent.” However, the popular creator suggested that she is nothing of the sort but rather those who push radical gender ideology onto children are the dangerous ones.
“This week there was a massive coordinated campaign from the left-wing media against me. They all basically started painting me as a terrorist who like inspires bomb threats,” said Raichik. “They are calling me dangerous and violent.”
“Do you know what is actually dangerous and violent? I'll tell you,” she continued.
“Introducing children to adult-themed sexualized performances where half-naked men dress up as women and shake around their massive prosthetic breasts and butts in front of kids. It's chopping off the healthy body parts of young confused minors. It's giving children pornography in schools. It's confusing children about their identity and having them think that they could be another gender,” Raichik asserted. “That is what's actually dangerous and violent.”
“But of course, none of these media people called any of that out or spoke about that at all,” she added.
Raichik said in a follow-up post, “I’m not gonna stop calling all these things out just because the media is trying to paint me as a violent and harmful terrorist. They aren’t really journalists. They’re activists.”
Articles published this week by Media Matters, USA Today, and Daily Beast, the latter of which interviewed an SPLC journalist, suggested that Raichik, who fights the culture war by sharing already uploaded videos of radical leftists onto her Libs of TikTok accounts using their own words, is “dangerous,” incites “hate and violence,” and inspires “bomb threats.”
Elon Musk, who has also been the target of hit pieces by these outlets, responded to Raichik's video and said: “You are on the side of the right.”
The seemingly coordinated hit pieces come after the far-left Anti-Defamation League (ADL) removed Chaya Raichik, a young Jewish woman, from its “Glossary of Extremism” last month. The ADL added her to the list in September 2022 after she had brought light to efforts by US children's hospital to perform sex changes on children. Videos she had shared included promotional clips by the Boston Children's Hospital and other major medical organizations.
“The ADL targeted me, a young conservative Jewish woman, for speaking out against wokeness, far-left indoctrination of children, and the medical mutilation of minors under the guise of gender ideology,” Raichik wrote.
Libs of TikTok had initially been an anonymous account, but Raichik was doxxed and her identity was revealed in April of 2022 by the Washington Post’s Taylor Lorenz, claiming that it was “incredibly important” to reveal the identity of the person behind the account, adding, “I mean, for all we knew, this could have been a foreign actor, right?”
Relatives of Raichik were also harassed by Lorenz at their family residence.
