A Chinese communist billionaire who admires mass-murderer Mao Zedong has joined the Top 100 landowners in the United States.
Of course, Tianqiao Chen didn’t buy almost 200,000 acres of pristine America in his own name, or that of the Chinese Communist Party of which he is a dutiful member. Rather, he acquired it in the name of his investment company.
The news raises the obvious concern that an enemy of the United States is vacuuming large tracts of American land, for who knows what purpose. That concern inspired the Senate to pass a bill in July that curtailed such purchases.
