For those that don't know, I live in Oregon. Oregon is on fire all up and down the I5 corridor.
I've been listening to the Clackamas County Sheriff's radio for hours now, and they have responded to multiple arson calls. Here's a partial list of arsons that are destroying the beautiful forests I live in:
What is apparent about these arsons is that they were all coordinated and set by an organized terrorist group. These aren't lightning fires, backyard burns gone out of control, or just downed powerlines. Oregon has never had a spate of arsons comparable to this ever, and all these are from the last 72 hours.
This is a deliberate, politically motivated attack on rural Oregonians intended to destroy their homes, communities, livelihoods, and remove them from their land, or kill them all. It's an attack on me and my kids, my neighbors, my homeland.
Worse, someone has tried to profit from the attack.
Gov. Kate Brown, who last year threatened to have the State Police arrest legislators and almost sparked a civil war, spoke, declaring a state of emergency. She blamed climate change. Should I need to mention she's a progressive leftist and was trying to ram carbon credit legislation through when she almost started a shooting war?
That legislation would have decimated the rural industries Oregonians depend on for their lives. Tillamook dairy products would have vanished from shelves worldwide. That's why her climate change comments are believed to be misdirection, and why she is believed to be in favor of rural Oregon being destroyed by Antifa arson. She already tried to do it with legislation. Arson is sure as hell not caused by CO2 rising.
Some of the arson arrests are associated with or linked to Antifa, which the political left insists are peaceful protesters. Folks where I live don't call statewide coordinated arson peaceful protest. They call it attempted murder, terrorism, and an act of war.
Locals are setting up checkpoints to keep outsiders out, so they don't start more fires. Citizens are patrolling logging roads, looking for cars with out of state plates, or no plates, and lots of gas cans. Cops patrol the highways, but the backroads, not so much.
If you ain't from here, and ain't a firefighter, now is not a good time to visit.
One town I lived in has been obliterated, and there's a long list of towns destroyed by these arson fires. Too long. The fires approach the outskirts of PDX now. There have been massive evacuations already, but if firefighters can't stop these fires, thousands may die.
Folks, keep an eye out for tweets or posts bragging up the attack on Oregon. People here are interested. The hardy farmers, fisherman, and loggers I serve here reckon they've been attacked by Antifa in an act of war. Oregon is an open carry state, and a lot of folks that didn't used to carry do now, because they intend to shoot arsonists on sight.
Hereabouts, they're thinking Kate Brown and Antifa are trying to kill them for their land.
I'm not sure they're wrong about that. We'll have to see if a bunch of these arsonists are released, like they have been in the riots. If they are, God help the cities.
God will have to forgive Antifa for this, if they are shown to be behind it.
