Nike CEO: Our Brand is That of Communist China

"Nike is a brand that is of China and for China," CEO John Donahoe.

Apparently the swoosh on Rory McIlroy’s hat and chest represents Communist China.

Speaking to Wall Street analysts, Nike’s new CEO, John Donahoe, said, “Nike is a brand that is of China and for China.”

Donahoe’s comment comes after Nike had been under fire by China’s consumer class for denying it uses slave labor. The company released a statement and laughably claimed it does not source its product material from “forced labor.” Yet does anyone think the supply chain documentation in a totalitarian country is going to somehow list forced labor?

Additionally, critics argue the country’s supply chains are all interwoven and Xinjiang, where the Uyghur Muslims are imprisoned, delivers 80 percent of Chinese cotton and so when all mixed within the chains, it’d be virtually impossible not be using native Xinjiang cotton.

The BBC has published long form investigations on this subject – here and here.)

  1. wow, this is a shoddy article with little facts and lots of innuendo. china of china means they produce all product for the china market, in China. What is your point of this article Jeff? Where’d you get your info Jeff, some fat golf buddy? Is your point to stroke the triggers of the MAGA class? This article is amateurish crap that belongs on Parler or Gab.

  2. Of course, Nike is the company that floated Kaperknik and his campaign to kneel for the National Anthem. No surprise that they now side with America’s greatest enemy!
