FINALLY! Congressman Demands Bill Gates Testify Why He’s Purchasing Enormous Amounts of American Farmland
A South Dakota Congressman has called for Bill Gates to testify before a committee to explain why he is purchasing vast amounts of farmland in the United States while telling Americans to stop eating meat, Infowars reported.
As WLT noted, the depopulation advocate is the largest owner of farmland in the United States with close to 270,000 acres of land in the country.
His portfolio extends across 19 states, including a recent purchase of another 2100 acres in North Dakota despite protests by local residents.
“Gates is circumventing a 1932 anti-corporate farm ownership law by pledging to lease the land back to farmers after the purchase is complete,” Infowars noted.
Now, South Dakota Rep. Dusty Johnson (R) wants answers!
“It has become clear in recent reports that Mr. Gates is the largest private farmland owner in America – he now owns nearly 270,000 acres of farmland across 19 states. Comparatively, the average farm size in 2021 was 445 acres, according to the United States Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service. I believe that Mr. Gates’ holdings across much of our nation is a significant portion that the Committee should not ignore,” Johnson wrote in a letter addressed to committee chairman David Scott.
Johnson also addressed the matter on Twitter, questioning how Gates buying huge quantities of farmland was consistent with him telling Americans not to eat meat.
“Bill Gates is the largest owner of US farmland. I’m curious what’s planned for this incredibly productive ag land given that he believes developed countries like America “shouldn’t eat any red meat.” How are his land purchases related to those aspirations?” asked Johnson.
In his letter, Johnson addressed the subject of Gates’s push for “synthetic meat.”
“The Committee should be interested in Mr. Gates’ ownership and plans for his acreage, as he has been a leading voice in the push for ‘synthetic meat’. In 2021, Mr. Gates was quoted to say ‘all rich countries should move to 100 percent synthetic beef’ to combat climate change,” wrote Johnson.
In a Fox News interview, Johnson demanded to know what Gates had planned for the farmland.
“Ownership of farmland matters, a lot. No one has been buying it up faster than Bill Gates,” Johnson told Fox News Digital. “He now owns 270,000 acres, making him the largest owner of American farmland.”
“Mr. Gates has argued that developed countries like America ‘shouldn’t eat any red meat,’” the South Dakota Republican continued. “Given that, our country deserves to hear from him what he has planned for this incredibly productive agricultural land.”
Johnson sent his letter to Scott on Wednesday, writing the chairman to bring Gates before the committee “to testify regarding his farming interests and practices.”
The billionaire is buying vast amounts of farmland at the same time as his friends at Davos are telling Americans, “You’ll own nothing and be happy.”
The land purchases are also happening at a time when farmers across Europe are being paid not to farm and are being put out of business by onerous net zero emissions targets pushed by globalist technocrats and bedfellows of Gates.
