Michigan Town Raises Hell Over Dems’ Deal to Allow ChiCom Factory

The Dems are hellbent on selling America out to the ChiComs

Michigan residents blasted Democratic state lawmakers during a public hearing Thursday where public funding was later approved to facilitate the construction of a Chinese-backed project.

During the Michigan state Senate Appropriations Committee hearing, lawmakers led by Democratic state Sen. Sarah Anthony, the panel’s chair, gave final approval of $175 million in taxpayer funding for Gotion — a subsidiary of the Hefei, China-based Gotion High-Tech — to build an electric vehicle (EV) battery plant in Big Rapids. The measure passed in a tight 10-9 vote with every committee Republican and three Democrats voting against it.

The funding was approved after a period in which members of the public were invited to deliver feedback about the project at the hearing. Nearly all the residents who spoke slammed the proposal and expressed concern about a company based in China developing a factory in their state.

“Why are we even considering — why would the county, the township, the state of Michigan even consider a Chinese-based company if, in fact, there is an American company willing to build this type of plant,” Russ Jennings, a resident, said during the hearing.

Marjorie Steele, a resident of Big Rapids, criticized the committee for rushing the vote on the funding and for scheduling the hearing with little notice.

“I’m angry. I’m angry that this vote was slipped into the agenda today with as little information as possible so that people like me wouldn’t know it was happening,” Steele said. “I’m angry that you, our elected officials, have ignored my community’s pleas to table this vote until some small semblance of due diligence can be performed.”

“I can promise you that we will not stop at the local level,” she added. “We are tired of being abused and we are not alone. This is not just a Mecosta County issue. Townships and counties across the state are uniting, sharing resources, manpower and grassroots activism. Your votes today, senators, are lines drawn in the sand.”

Cheryl Vitito, another resident, said the project would serve as a part of the Chinese government’s broader plan to “overthrow the United States without firing a shot.”

“I think that any Chinese communist plant buying up 700 acres of Michigan land is a concern to all citizens throughout the state,” she said. “This CCP-controlled company represents communism and is a threat to our way of life and our God-given and constitutional freedoms. We don’t want the CCP here by way of the Gotion plant as they have no regard for the value and dignity of human life.”

“This company pledges allegiance to the Chinese Communist Party and should be determined as a threat to our national security,” added resident Shirley Schaefer.

The ChiComs have their claws into this country pretty deep. They’re buying up land next to military bases and the US government and businesses are selling our security to Beijing.  They’re treating the CCP like a business partner. The Chinese have engaged in cyber attacks, spying, economic espionage, and actual threatening of U.S. Naval vessels. Yet these traitors think giving them money, technology, and contributing to the Chinese threat are good ideas.
