Apple: Cheap Labour From China, Now Helping China Digitally ‘Conquer’ Taiwan

Posted in Apple, Asia at 8:36 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Taiwan

Summary: More backlash against Apple, which helps a rising oppressor change facts and conceptually take over a very large island that prides itself on high quality industries

Taiwan’s political system is mystifying. I spent a lot of time reading about the history and the current relation to PRC (essentially like ‘Greater China’ or ‘United China’). My wife worked in Taipei (electronics), so I can always hear from someone who knows this better. China has been turning into the ‘new Japan’ in the sense that it’s silently occupying and crushing dissent in neighbouring countries and islands. It expands its empire by force and by oppression. By restricting journalism it limits what the outside world knows about it. One might as well call it the Great PR Wall of China (the ‘people’s’). Taiwan has its own government and on the Internet/Web it has its own suffix, .tw.

“For Apple to simply label the Taiwanese people “Chinese” would be like calling Cypriots “Turks” or “Greek”.”For Apple, a vicious and ruthless company that detests even its own customers if they don't toe the party line (we often compare it to North Korea for this reason), using the near equivalent or prison labour makes perfect sense. Apple uses factories in areas that have weak worker/employer regulations and where pay/working hours are incredibly inhumane. Apple got bad publicity over this and it’s not too selective (different countries and provinces in Asia have different rules and practices). A country which pretends to be communist (for the ‘people’) while actually serving few billionaires (capitalism) — both domestic and foreign — is a good match for Apple, so it should make nobody wonder that Apple tries to appease and even appeal to China (Microsoft does the same thing, but that’s another story).

I was horrified when I read that Apple is now showing Taiwan as though it’s just a “province of China” [1] because it’s like China has just silently taken over (people in Taiwan are mostly prepared to fight for their lives to defend from Chinese takeover). This is insensitive and one might wonder if it’s intentional rather than an accident. It’s hard to get this type of stuff ‘wrong’. There is a known controversy here, similar to that of the Palestinian territories (among several other feuding nations/ethnic groups). Fictitious maps are the best kind of propaganda [2] because they help distort facts and misrepresent history [2]. Here in Europe there is great demonisation of immigrants (especially in Greece [3]) amid ethnic tensions and growing clannish tendencies (it’s hardly better in north America [4]). For Apple to simply label the Taiwanese people “Chinese” would be like calling Cypriots “Turks” or “Greek”. It’s beyond tactless and it is insulting to many.

    “For Apple to simply label the Taiwanese people “Chinese” would be like calling Cypriots “Turks” or “Greek”.” Wrong. More lies from a filthy manipulative jew like Schestowitz. Taiwan is an island. Taiwanese is a nationality. The Chinese are a genetically homogenous group of people who make up both China and Taiwan. The people of China and Taiwna are predominantly Chinese. Jews are semites, Arabs are semites. Semites are very devious, sneaky, and manipulative people. Their mossad and hezbollah have infiltrated just about every country. Jews are also responsible for kosher tax scams (U and K). Jews are scum. Schestowitz is a scumbag.

    In a filthy kike site like this, all you’ll hear are how great the filthy manipulative jews are and how everyone else is ignorant exept for the filthy manipulative biased jew scum and their zionist agendas whom we should all look up to. I repeat Schestowitz is a filthy manipulative conniving chameleon of a jew.

    Taiwan will always be part of China. It sure as fuck can’t be part of the slimey US empire. Taiwan is located just a few miles from mainland China, while Taiwan is half a world away from the slimey US of A. It is only fair to utter “Taiwan for the Taiwanese/Chinese” people, not “Taiwan for Kikes”, or “Taiwan for the WASP colonist”.

    There is no communism without marxism. Marxist idealogy is communist idelogy and marxist ideology was invented by a filthy jew. This kike Schestowitz is just pissed off that nobody not even China is following the filthy jew marxist manifesto.

    Just as the filthy jews infiltrated russia/ Soviet Union and played the commie, the filthy kikes infiltrated EU and US and played the capitalist heebie scum. Kikes have been pulling the string as puppeeters of all nations for as long as I can remember. When will we be rid of these filthy jew parasites like Schestowitz.

    Go ahead delete the above comments. Then go write about an article about how you’re (a filthy jew) so against Internet Censorship when in truth you filthy kikes have all but infiltrated all media from huffingtonpost to wikipedia to put a positive spin (i.e., propaganda) on how fantastic you filthy lying manipulative jews really are. What’s the difference between internet censorship and misinformation? None! According to the filthy jews.
