On Friday, we published a piece analyzing the question of whether or not the fires could have been started by Antifa. The conclusion was that it is most likely Antifa is behind some or many of the fires, but they wouldn’t ever be caught.
However, Oregon cops now have a suspect. “A 41-year-old local transient” sure sounds like a possible Antifa to me.
He sure as hell looks like one too.
This news is breaking as I write, and it’s only a matter of time before the internet finds out what this man’s affiliations are.
The Jews must be cringing and clutching their copies of Harry Potter having to report this news.
Authorities in southern Oregon charged a 41-year-old man with starting part of one of this year’s most destructive fires, saying he lit the fire in a small Oregon town as a larger blaze moved toward the area.
The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office said the Almeda Fire started around 11 a.m. on Tuesday in Ashland, Ore., and then began spreading north along Interstate 5. Around 5 p.m., residents reported that a man had started a fire in Phoenix, a town of about 4,500 people just north of Ashland that was under orders to evacuate, authorities said.
The Sheriff’s Office said police officers discovered Michael Jarrod Bakkela at the scene, denying that he started the large fire nearby. Police arrested him on a parole violation.
On Friday, the Jackson County district attorney charged him with arson, criminal mischief and reckless endangering.
Mr. Bakkela, who could not be reached, had not yet been appointed a lawyer, said Beth Heckert, the county’s district attorney. He was scheduled to be arraigned in court on Monday, she said.
Mike Moran, a public information officer for the Jackson County sheriff, said Mr. Bakkela had a criminal record and was well known to local law enforcement. A news release from the Sheriff’s Office described him as “a local transient.”
While many wildfires on the West Coast this year have burned through remote areas and parts of rural communities, the Almeda Fire hit a series of towns along the freeway in southern Oregon, destroying an estimated 500 homes and 100 businesses. Mr. Moran said authorities were still investigating the fire’s initial point of origin in Ashland. He said that they suspected arson there, too, and that they found the remains of one man near the fire’s start.
Even as this man was being arrested, CNN and the FBI were protecting their Antifa assets, claiming that anyone who thinks Antifa could be behind these fires is an evil QAnon theorist.
Authorities in Oregon are pleading with the public to only trust and share information verified by official sources about the unprecedented wildfires sweeping the state. The pleas come as law enforcement agencies described 911 dispatchers being overrun with calls about a false online rumor that “Antifa” members had been arrested for setting the fires — a claim promoted by the anonymous account behind the QAnon conspiracy theories.
The incident highlights how online conspiracy theories, a sustained right-wing campaign to create increased fear of anti-fascist groups, and amplification of false claims by QAnon followers, have real consequences.
On Friday, the FBI responded, saying, “reports that extremists are setting wildfires in Oregon are untrue.”
“Rumors spread just like wildfire,” the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office warned in a Facebook post Thursday, adding that staff had been “overrun with requests for information and inquiries on an UNTRUE rumor that 6 Antifa members have been arrested for setting fires” in the area.
It’s just unbelievable that they would try to associate people speculating about Antifa with QAnon.
I mean, as I said on Friday: Antifa has been setting fires in Oregon for over three months. So if you see a fire in Oregon, any normal person’s mind is going to go to Antifa.
The FBI defending them is so sickening.
At time of writing, these remain the biggest fires in recorded history, and a total of half a million people have been forced to flee their homes in Oregon alone.
After the coronavirus hoax, then that thing with the blacks, 2020 is probably looking at the biggest unnatural nature disaster in the country’s history.
