It's not often, but there are times when it's a relief to be into my eighth decade. But I worry about the younger folks in my family.

One of the few tattoos I've always considered getting was the quote attributed to Winston Churchill: Never, Never, Never Give Up.

Well then, ******* arrest them. Put your SWAT team together, get your cans of whoopass out of the armory and go screw some gun barrels in peoples' ears. Do it to a couple of checkpoints and the rest will magically disappear.

Seriously, what the **** does a white guy with a gun have to do to get arrested?

Fake Antifa arsonist carrying fake matches,

Fake angry property owner with fake gun,

Fake news.


In the video, the woman can be seen detaining the man on the road as she asks him why he was going into her property with matches in his hand.

On one level, Q morons confusing the Bureau of Land Management which is working hard to fight the fires with Black Lives Matter is so dumb it's funny.

This is another, dark example of why conspiracy theorists need to learn their place and not inject themselves in important matters. The stupidity here is actually causing harm and distracting resources and personnel who should be working on protecting lives and property. Their kind need to stick with the moon landings and Elvis sightings and not involve themselves in matters that require the attention of serious, rational adults.

Have there ever been people associated with antifa who intended to start wildfires so they could then loot? Not that I am aware.

Have there ever been people who started wildfires because they wanted to loot? Not that I am aware of. I suppose it's possible but it would be pretty stupid to set fire to property that you wanted to loot. Fire tends to destroy valuable lootable property.

Has anybody ever intentionally started a wildfire? Uh...yeah.

Has there ever been looting following a fire or other natural disaster? Uh...yeah.

Antifa is just the new right-wing bogey man.

https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article...-arson-arrests

Quote:
Arson arrests during fire season are nothing new. Some involve people with mental illness or pyromaniac compulsions, others are people being careless, say, at a gender reveal. But with the US election firmly underway, incidents like the one involving Lopez have been swept up in a wave of right-wing online conspiracy theories designed at discrediting climate change scientists and playing into President Trump’s message about a breakdown of law and order in Democratic-leaning states.

Most notably, people have falsely claimed some of the fires were arson attacks committed by antifa, a loosely defined group of left-wing, anti-fascist activists that Trump has called a "terrorist organization." This fear-mongering — particularly in Oregon, which has been the site of deadly clashes between right- and left-wing demonstrators in recent months — has even led some residents to vow to defy evacuation orders and remain in their burning towns in order to "defend" them from the purported arsonists. The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office has even had to remove checkpoints set up by residents who had been forcing cars to stop. Photographers and journalists have been accused of being arsonists and looters, and have been threatened and even held at gunpoint as a result.

Amid the swirling falsehoods, the FBI has had to intervene, releasing a statement on Friday making clear that reports of "extremists" being behind the fires had been investigated and were found to be untrue. "Conspiracy theories and misinformation take valuable resources away [from] local fire and police agencies working around the clock to bring these fires under control," the FBI's Portland division said.

No silly.

The war on truth and humanity began long before anyone heard of Trump.

The Deep State/media unholy marriage is merely the current version.

You are the one with Kool Aide oozing from your eyes and ears.

Do carry on in your state of denial.

Your so-called "war on truth" is a fiction that exists only in the minds of the Idiocracy and the Stupidati that inhabit the ranks of dumb-ass conspiracy theorists.

You're partially, right that this conspiracy theory predates the Trump Presidency, but it does not pre-date Trump himself. Remember the ludicrous BS that was "birtherism"? If you are looking for a war on truth you can start with that one - and Trump was the most prominent promoter of birther conspiracy theories as far back as 2010.


ETA: Oh, and can you remember who declared antifa to be a "terrorist organization"?

Well, it is an easy target, so thanks for that.

Quote:
Over the past week, PolitiFact summarily shot down allegations of human-made fires
Did you check the link for that, Bubba? The link in the article? Because it clearly shows how that sentence is a bare-faced lie.
Did you look at the list of people arrested for arson? How many of them were antifa? (I got as far as number 6, and only one of them was mentioned as a BLM activist. No mention of antifa up to there).
It is so funny how you do this, Bubba.
Every. Single. Time.

BubbaBingo points:
1. Bubba will ignore this completely, and go on to the next unfounded accuation.
2. Non-factual rebuttal.
3. Attempt at gaslighting. ("I never said they were antifa" or something like that).
4. Ignores it for a while, then posts it again as if nothing had happened.

Good luck, everyone!

Cops and right wing vigilantes, name a more iconic duo.

Quote:
Drivers who were stopped said they were asked to identify themselves and their connection to the town and claimed that on at least two occasions, police were on the scene and did not intervene in the illegal traffic stops.
Cops side with armed right wing extremists almost every time. Cops and Klan, hand in hand. Always have been, always will be.

Quote:
Robinson said she was questioned by a “heavily armed” man carrying a AR-style long gun and a visible sidearm. She said the man asked at one point: “You’re not from around here, are you?” which Robinson, who is African American, understood as having racist overtones.

Eventually the men let her pass on to her friend’s place. On her return journey, she was stopped again. She said she saw two Multnomah county sheriff’s office (MCSO) cruisers stopped by the roadblock, and an officer talking with one of the people running it. She said the deputies did nothing to intervene in the illegal stop.
Armed vigilantes stopping black travelers and questioning them about their business. Nothing for cops to be concerned about here.
