500 for $15 plus shipping, not bad!

They would be delightful additions to:

- Biden signs and bumper stickers
- BLM signs
- Sodomy flags

Use your imagination!

(Ironically, made in the USA)

What does the Chinese writing say? It does resemble the typical "Made in China" 中國製造 except for being upside down and two characters are different.

Most likely another word choice meaning the same thing? I would hate to fall for a gag. Anyone here know Chinese?

The best part is: They're made in America!

He says:

Yes, but it’s a bit awkwardly phrased.

It says: In made China

NATO Toughens Stance on Chinese Regime, Says Beijing Presents ‘Systemic Challenge’
BY CATHY HE June 14, 2021

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) will confront the Chinese regime’s growing military ambition for the first time, the 30-nation Western alliance said on June 14, describing Beijing as presenting “systemic challenges” to the global order.

Hardly. They will just have some ramped up discussions, and dump money into the 3rd world countries to "counter CCP influence."

Good observation. I asked a trilingual friend whose native language is Chinese. He says the Chinese words part of the label means "is making China" or "is in the process of making China (great)"; the word "in" (pronounced "zai") in Chinese denotes both spatial and temporal "in the middle of," and the Chinese language doesn't have tense difference such as "made" vs. "making," or passive-voice vs. active-voice (the two words/tenses/voices are exactly the same in Chinese), so the meaning (consequently the tense in English translation) has to be context-dependent. The implicit "(great)" at the tail end is a common linguistic practice among languages/cultures rich in sub-text communication such as Japanese and Chinese; they often skip the most obvious part in expression.

It's fine, because the real audience is Americans who put up anti-American BLM signs and sodomy flags.

Slap a sticker on their sign or flag and see whether they figure out that they have been used by China. At least it puts the word "China" in front of them and does not mention race.

Don't mention words you don't want people to think about.

Do mention words you do want people to think about, like "China".

Yep, control the framing, right on Pat. Don't operate in their frame.
