Pennsylvania Democrat Senator John Fetterman blasted Communist China’s takeover of the U.S. agriculture sector and the mass Chinese purchase of American farmland, telling his Senate colleagues that China should own “zero” farmland in the United States and that the U.S. should “take back” the American farmland that China already owns.
The remarks from Fetterman came during a U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee meeting on the foreign ownership of American farmland and agricultural production as well as its impact on both food and national security. Specifically, a portion of the meeting focused on American farmland that’s owned by Communist China and other foreign American adversaries, and that discussion teed up the Pennsylvania Senator’s remarks, which have shocked many considering his far-left political leanings.
“Let me say I hope many of our colleagues agree, the Chinese government and other U.S. adversaries should own zero, zero agricultural land in our country,” Fetterman said.
“I believe that,” Fetterman added, going on to align the seizure of Chinese-owned farmland to the Chinese Communist Party’s recent demand that the U.S. return panda bears from Washington, D.C.’s National Zoo to their Chinese homeland.
“I mean, they’re taking back our pandas, you know? We should take back all of their farmland.”
Wow. Even the most supremely broken of clocks is right once in his entire life, it would seem.

While Fetterman’s remarks on seizing Chinese farmland in the United States have sent shockwaves through both liberal and conservative circles online, it is an important example of the intersection of left-wing and right-wing populism. Subscribers to both schools of thought are opposed to global groups of government and corporate elites exerting ownership and control over the United States, especially ownership and control over a means of production as important as American agriculture.
It should, however, be noted that as things currently stand, the likelihood of Washington actually taking action to seize American farmlands from their CCP owners is rather low, considering the massive extent of influence that the Chinese Communist Party has exerted over America’s government.
As extensively investigated and reported by National File, multiple Chinese Communist influence operations have ensnared dozens, if not hundreds, of members of Congress, on both sides of the aisle.
