With an estimated 224.3 million smartphone users in the U.S. and an estimated 2.1 billion smartphone users worldwide, its likely that you own a smartphone. But as youve spent thousands of minutes scrolling through social media or browsing the internet, did you ever wonder where your smartphone came from? Did you ever think that the device which demands so much of your attention could have been made by a slave?

SJWs won’t care about this issue because they aren’t going to part with smartphones, no matter who is getting oppressed in order to make them.
So what are your thoughts on this?
If it was, then you are due for an upgrade.
Even if it was not true, imagine that it is. It makes us the equivalent of Germans that looked the other way regarding the extermination of Jews.
Unfortunately, the link takes too long to load and I don’t trust it.
Was your electric car made by a slave?
Interesting that they had a big photo showing the Samsung logo, but none showing the Apple logo.
Youre posting something from FEBRUARY 20, 2019 thats encouraging signing up for the leftist, globalist Amnesty International? Why?
It’s got to be. $120 for a Moto G7 with a year’s worth of service on Tracfone. It’s got to be slave made.

Right. But they will find some conservative somewhere in the supply chain to blame.
I’ve said from day 1 we shouldn’t trade with polluting slave states.
Since we started trading with communist China, manufacturing has been a race to the bottom where only slaves dumping toxic waste can compete.
I think most things like cell phones are made in Asian Sweat Shops.
First of all, it’s old but still there is slavery today and that is what I’m pointing out.
Second of all I was not aware of the leftist globalist Amnesty International aspect.
Of course I will not be signing up for that.
But it is the globalists that are making money on the slave trade.
“Even if it was not true, imagine that it is. It makes us the equivalent of Germans that looked the other way regarding the extermination of Jews.”
Trade with China alone is bad enough. We are supporting a communist dictatorship and global pollution beyond a scale we have never seen. Nearly all the plastic in the ocean is from China dumping in their rivers.
Tell your friends to buy American or from other free nations.
My LG phone is made in S Korea
From where did the material in your catalytic converter come?
My Samsung Galaxy made in Malaysia.
Apple fanbois sure love that Communist Chinese-made iphone
They did this with diamonds. Coming up with the term blood or conflict diamonds. I’m not a big diamond fan so I can safely say I have no conflict diamonds as jewelry. I might have some item with some industrial type diamonds in it but nothing comes to mind right away. That said I doubt anyone can source every item they own. It would be close to an impossible task. The best I can do is avoid some companies and countries which I object to mostly for political reasons. Probably I am far from ethically perfect in my few possessions. I still sleep ok at night.
Those overpriced sh*tkickers from Nike are made in SE Asian sweatshops by children forced to work under dangerous slavelike conditions. Not don’t tell their mouthpiece Krappynick.
Years ago I had the motor mounts on the 64 replaced with new ones from China. Didn’t last 2 years. 3 years ago when I had the transmission rebuilt they put new motor and transmission mounts in from Thailand. So far they’re holding up just fine. Anyone who restores old cars tries to avoid Chinese made crap. If Amrican made parts aren’t available the stuff from Thailand or India is much better quality than than from China.
