Tuesday evening Tucker Carlson had a very special guest: the quasi-anonymous creator of the Libs of TikTok Twitter account. The appearance comes in the wake of an investigation by Washington Post “tech journalist” Taylor Lorenz, who revealed the creator’s identity and accused her of “amping up extreme rhetoric and normalizing portraying queer people as inherently dangerous to children.”

Despite the Left trying to “intimidate her into silence,” the account curator said, “That’s just never gonna happen.”

Since her doxxing, however, she has relocated to a safer, undisclosed, location, from which she has continued to post content.

“I’m now in a location where I don’t think anyone would find me,” she said. Although she “had to make some travel plans really fast.”

“These past few days have been very chaotic and overwhelming.” One can imagine!

But Libs of TikTok isn’t the only person not backing down. While the Washington Post removed some of the identifying information from its story, it still stands by its “investigation” into Libs of TikTok. “Taylor Lorenz is a diligent and accomplished journalist whose reporting methods comport entirely with the Washington Post’s professional standards,” Washington Post senior managing editor Cameron Barr said Tuesday.

The Post “did not publish or link to any details about [the Libs of TikTok curator’s] personal life.”

Taylor Lorenz, meanwhile, felt that the debate over “doxxing” was missing the point. “Rather than debate ‘doxxing,’ I hope people can read this story and see the striking escalation of attacks against gay and trans people, and the crucial role this account has played in the right-wing media ecosystem.”

Besides revealing her identity, the Washington Post article was also full of breathless accusations against Libs of TikTok.

Libs of TikTok is, according to the Post, “a wire service for the broader right-wing media” which is “impacting anti-LGBTQ+ legislation.” It allegedly uses “incendiary framing designed to generate outrage,” which ends up “affecting teachers’ ability to feel safe in their classrooms.” It is “promoted by… Joe Rogan” and is, as the ACLU told the Post, engaged in “finding new characters for right-wing propaganda.”

The report concludes by noting that “it’s hard to stoke moral panic without main characters, and the role Libs of TikTok is playing is finding those characters.”
