Credit to Yashar Ali for pointing this out. I don’t have a TikTok account but Ali reports that Osama Bin Laden’s “Letter to America” is suddenly going viral on the site with hundreds of random people falling over themselves to praise and recommend it.
Over the past 24 hours, thousands of TikToks (at least) have been posted where people share how they just read Bin Laden’s infamous “Letter to America,” in which he explained why he attacked the United States.
The TikToks are from people of all ages, races, ethnicities, and backgrounds. Many of them say that reading the letter has opened their eyes, and they’ll never see geopolitical matters the same way again.
Many of them — and I have watched a lot — say it has made them reevaluate their perspective on how what is often labeled as terrorism can be a legitimate form of resistance to a hostile power.
