Updated 11/8/20: Boycott Chicoms: Chinese-owned manufacturers/companies in America

Originally published April 28, 2020. Updated below.

Chicoms lied, people died.

Time to take action against China. Hit ’em where is hurt$.

Last summer I quit shopping at WalMart because 1) of their relationship with China and 2) their stance on open carry. They are a private company and can make their own business decisions as they see fit. Just as I can choose not to shop there.

We all have an opportunity to make a choice now: Do we support America or do we support the Chicoms and their companies?

Here’s a list of Chinese owned-companies that operate in America. I’m sure there are plenty more – feel free to let us know about them in the comments!

Smithfield Foods

From Wikipedia:

“Smithfield Foods, Inc., is a meat-processing company based in Smithfield, Virginia, in the United States, and a wholly owned subsidiary of WH Group of China. Founded in 1936 as the Smithfield Packing Company by Joseph W. Luter and his son, the company is the largest pig and pork producer in the world. In addition to owning over 500 farms in the US, Smithfield contracts with another 2,000 independent farms around the country to grow Smithfield’s pigs.

GE Appliances

From Wikipedia:

“GE Appliances is an appliance manufacturer based in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. It is majority owned by Haier. It is one of the largest appliance brands in the United States and manufactures appliances under a house of brands which include: GE, GE Profile, Café, Monogram, Haier and Hotpoint. On June 6, 2016, Haier & KKR acquired GE Appliances for $5.6 billion. Under the terms of the sale Haier would have the right to use the GE brand name until 2056.”

Haier Group Corporation is a multinational home appliances and consumer electronics company headquartered in Qingdao, China. It designs, develops, manufactures and sells products including refrigerators, air conditioners, washing machines, microwave ovens, mobile phones, computers, and televisions. The home appliances business, namely Haier Smart Home, has seven global brands – Haier, Casarte, Leader, GE Appliances, Fisher & Paykel, Aqua and Candy.”

AMC Theatres

From Wikipedia:

“AMC Theatres (originally an abbreviation for American Multi-Cinema; often referred to simply as AMC and known in some countries as AMC Cinemas or AMC Multi-Cinemas) is an American movie theater chain headquartered in Leawood, Kansas, and is the largest movie theater chain in the world. Wanda Group owns a 38% share in AMC. Wanda Group is a Chinese multinational conglomerate based in Beijing. It is a private property developer and owner of Wanda Cinemas and the Hoyts Group, as well as a majority shareholder of AMC Theatres.”

Motorola

From Wikipedia:

“Motorola Mobility LLC, marketed as simply Motorola, is an American consumer electronics and telecommunications subsidiary company owned by Chinese technology firm Lenovo. The company primarily manufactures smartphones and other mobile devices running the Android operating system developed by Google.”

There’s a lot more companies that the Chicoms have been acquiring. See more here.

Updated 11/8/20: Add the following company and their products to your #BoycottChicoms list: SharkNinja.

SharkNinja is a distributor of home devices and appliances based in in Needham, Massachusetts. SharkNinja was acquired by CDH Private Equity in 2017.

SharkNinja produces some VERY popular products including the Ninja air fryer and Shark vacuum cleaners.

Guess who owns CDH Private Equity?

Yep, the Chicoms!

You have the power to choose with your American dollar$. Unfortunately, if the demorats/media/Big Tech get THEIR power, we may have no choice.

Thank you for this list, DCG.
AMC Theaters is owned by the ChiComms! Add to that the Chinese box office, it’s no wonder Hollywood is so gung-ho about China.

I own a GE toaster oven, Haier chest freezer, and a Motorola cell phone. They distinguish me from most homeless people as they are considered luxuries. Although I like ham (most brands) it is a rarity on my budget.
I support the idea of boycotting China-owned companies, but my options are always dependent on my budget. As a senior citizen on a fixed income, that is my reality.

excuses are like A-holes, everyone got one. Just like the Nazis at Nuremberg. The solution is not to buy one more thing from a Chinese company, not to throw away what you already have.

I also have a Haier freezer and will watch closely in the future for China made. The sad thing is 5 years ago I knew about Smithfield and one day the list along with smithfield was humongous–it’s hard to not buy and not know it.

Here’s another company you can add to the list: Continental aircraft engines. For general aviation piston powered aircraft (e.g. Cessnas, Pipers, etc.), we HAD two engine makers: Lycoming and Continental. Continental is now owned by the Chinese, which leaves Lycoming as the only American owned manufacturer of reciprocating aircraft engines. When you go through Continental’s website, there’s no mention of Chicom ownership in the “About Us” section. In the “History” section, it just mentions that “Technify Motors USA, a subsidiary of AVIC International”, bought Continental in 2011. Only when you dig deeper (i.e. look up Technify and AVIC), do you… Read more »

I will not longer give chinese owned businesses my patronage. That country and its people have been nothing but trouble to the United States. Their government created this virus delibratly to harm those refusing communism. It is time that manufacturing jobs return to the United States and are taken away from China. They steal from us and are nothing but liars. They steal people’s pattens and mass produce that product at 1/4 the cost and ship it to Walmart stores all over the US. The original patten owner is screwed over. Those people are brainwashed into not questioning the government.… Read more »

Mostly the price,partly because we’re too lazy to research all the different brands when we have to buy stuff. If we got a list once a year that showed only NON-ChiCom made stoves,fridges,TV’s,etc. etc. etc.,a LOT more Americans would join the fight. Maybe we could get one of the America First Colleges to take that on.

Thanks for this! I’ve been disappointed about Smithfield for the last few years since they sold out to the Chinese and do not buy our traditional Virginia holiday fare from them anymore. My husband grew up nr. Smithfield & it was a part of his family celebrations that we continued to have shipped to us across country until the Chinese bought it. (If they can put poisonous ingredients into our dog and cat foods…to cut corners, .as they DID abt a decade ago, then why would I trust them with MY FOOD?) I also knew about Motorola…one of the earliest… Read more »

Ya know-when I got my current cell phone I never even gave a thought to where it was made-the last Motorola ANYTHING I owned was a 1958 Motorola TV,which STILL works fine,thank you. I just told the saleswoman, “I need the toughest,hardest to break Cell Phone you have.” and this was it. “Sigh”-I guess everything is a trade-off.

I dunno how I missed this first time around…

I have a Haier chest freezer, and eat some meats that are under the Smithfield umbrella.

I think AMC will go out of business soon, as the lockdowns are getting strict again.

Seems like the ChiComs have their grubby paws everywhere in American society, and it’s difficult not to purchase something that has its HQ in China.

America and China.

In fairness, GE had to sell its appliance division years ago. Its stock value had plummeted from ~$160 a share to $6 a share during the great recession. And Haier still employs the same American workers and builds stuff in the same plant in Louisville. GE got taken out by both cheap & improved Asian knock-offs and cheap Chinese steel, which is also killing local steel manufacturers (E.G., AK Steel, recently bought by a Canadian venture firm, now trades at $1.55 a share). Then there’s the problem of ridiculously high corporate taxes driving American manufacturers overseas to compete (and thankfully,… Read more »

And now, in a Biden administration, all the efforts President Trump had made to resist and contain Communist China, along with other Trump policies and initiatives, will all be dismantled. Evil times we find ourselves in.
