The Chinese Are Taking Over

The Freedom Tower, a symbol of American resilience and unrelenting patriotism in the face of tragedy and strife, built on the former site of the World Trade Center, controlled by that tri-state bulwark called the Port Authority, has found its first tenant! And it's...a Chinese real estate company.

Look, internationalism is wonderful, we love everybody, we should not mock the Chinese people, true true true. But come on. Wouldn't it have been wonderful if the first tenants of the Freedom Tower, thereby serving as a symbol of American rebirth, came from...America? I'm not saying "white," I'm saying a company based in the United States. Oh well. Maybe I'm just a wee bit red-state that way.

And now it's not even called the Freedom Tower. One World Trade. Also the Sears Tower is now the Willis Tower, hopefully named in honor of Bruce Willis saving that skyscraper in Die Hard. But still, what the fuck is going on?
