This appeared at Insty’s place yesterday:
I understand the sentiment, and anything that helps drain the fucking swamp that is China is a Good Thing.
However, I would have felt SO much better had the headline read:
Six Apple production lines moving from China to Mississippi*.
Instead of helping the Asian Third World, how about first helping our own local Third World (using Mississippi as an example)? I mean, in Mississippi they vote and everything, plus BONUS!!! the principal beneficiaries of such production relocation would mostly be Black because manufacturing jobs.
Getting out of China: good
Getting into Mississippi: doubleplusgood
Those woke assholes at Apple probably prefer to help the Pore & Starvin in other countries because it makes them feel virtuous; helping the rubes in flyover country? eeeeeew.
*Yes, in English we say “from… to…” e.g. “from left to right” and “from A to Z”, and not “to right from left” or “to Z from A”. We even read from left to right, in English.
