CNN:

QAnon fans spread fake claims about real fires in Oregon

You’ll never guess who they are blaming!

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.”

Sweet Jeebus, the weak-brained are wasting resources in a natural disaster, where we’ve heard 500,000 Americans have been evacuated in Oregon alone!

Yup, you read that right: Republicans have managed to politicize a natural disaster.

    Reminds me of what Joe Baegent called illiterate low class economics – white trashonomics.

    Just a note. Oregon Governor Brown today corrected the report of 500,000 evacuees. There are 500,000 that have had notice they may have to evacuate.

    State attorneys general really should go after these assholes, even the small ones. Make an example of them, force the rest to stick to the Mole Children crap.

    The phrase ‘cutting off ones nose to spite ones face’ comes to mind.
    This is such a horrific situation…there appears to be absolutely no shame with some.

    Ridiculousness can only be combated with ridiculousness. Antifa didn’t start the wildfires, it was a shorted out vacuum cleaner the tree huggers were using to clean the forest floor. Somebodies got to do it for christ’s sake.

    What’s so amazing to me is how these RWNJs can spot our “troops,” as they wear even fewer significant insignias, or other patches that indicate their affiliations, than those Federal Troops who were conscripted outta the CBP and DHS’s elite “Schutzstaffel,” mule-ishas, and other various “Semper Pie” and “Meal-team 6” adherents and respondents, when they went to Make Peace Happen in Portland and elsewhere. You know, the ones who were sent in at LDN’s request, and who are, even now, prepared to go in and wreak havoc on Judgement, er Election Day.

    It’s just gotten too damn difficult to distinguish the Goths, and the wanna-be’s, and the poseurs from the Antifa thugs, so I don’t even try anymore…

    This is nothing new.
    Here’s a short list.
    Katrina?
    * “This is working very well for them” (IYKWIM)
    * [pictures of white guys “finding” bread and black guys “looting” grocery stores]
    Puerto Rico hit by Maria?
    * “Can’t we just sell Puerto Rico? They are all poor there anyway.”
    Last year’s California wildfires?
    * “It’s the Democrat’s in California refusing to sweep the floors of their [federal] forests like the Finns do, and they don’t like me anyway, why should I let FEMA help them?”
    COVID-19?
    * “The data says the Democrat run areas will be harder hit (because they are more populous on average, but let’s not give them that) so if we just let the virus run its course it’s a win for us.”

    I’ve actually been waiting for this moment. Couple months ago I posed a question with a photo gone viral at the time: “why are you cops letting that white-trash scream and spit in your face when we both know if I did it you would shoot me?” I knew then as I know now it’s coming to this: pissing off the cops. The proud boys, patriot piss, half-percenters and oath breakers may well be in for a rude surprise the next time they stir up some shit.

    Personally: call out the firetrucks, wash all that trash into the river. Even sent the guvna’ a dispatch suggesting so but, she has (so far) demurred.

    Just wash all that shit into the river.
