I doubt it's "Antifa", unless everyone who is an asshole is calling themselves "Antifa" now, but there is certainly some VERY suspicious stuff going with these fires in Oregon.

Virtually all of California's fires were caused by lighting. Except for some early ones on the Reservation. But that's to be expected. The Hupa tribe burns their own land every F&^King year. They stop cooking meth long enough to light their own $#!T on fire.

But Oregon's a different story.

I think that's the one where a body was found near the fire origion. Nobody apprehended last I heard.

Hoopa sucks...

they DO NOT like white people being there.

many of the fires in hoopa are what we called "basket grass fires".

the elderly women would burn the tall grass fields so they could get good fresh grass next year to make their baskets.

more than one individual has been caught red handed lighting fires only to have the tribal council let them go...

Re: Medford Oregon Evacuations


Daily mail:

'
Ashland Police Chief Tighe O'Meara announced Thursday a criminal investigation has been opened into the cause of the fire

He said the circumstances around the fire's origin were 'suspicious'

The body of an unidentified individual was found near the origin Wednesday

This comes as NWS data showed 87% of all 2020 wildfires were human-caused

California is worst for human-caused fires, with a total of 7,072 in 2020

Oregon officials denied reports spreading on social media that fires have been deliberately started by far-left group Antifa and far-right group Proud Boys

IMO, at this point it doesn't really matter who is starting fires they just have to be caught and summarily executed...

there are just way too many small fires popping up and it is not due to the fire spotting...

looks like the fire fighters caught a little break in the weather yesterday & today.

winds have died down and the high yesterday was 72.

48 here this morning, no wind, overcast and currently 60 deg.

Lots of first person reports of vans shooting flares, arsonists being held at gun point, and sketchy characters with gas cans.

Canby and Oregon city on the outskirts of Portland just got evacuation orders as well.
You're joking correct? Their still burning **** and we need to stick together and find em' later? Your part of the problem.

Prayers for all involved. I hope all get out safe and our servicemen stay safe. These guys risk their lives to save others.

If anyone has a place to donate that actually goes to the cause I would love to donate.

Also, yes shoot on site if starting fires. I don't want my tax dollars going to prosecute the animals that are willing ruin/kill 100's to 1000's of lives!

Same here. Great firefighting weather. Zero wind, high humidity and cool Temps.

Now if we could get the normal westerly winds, it would push them back ontonpreviously burned areas and be partly self containing.

I like how they had to add Proud Boys in with antifa.

I don't think there is anyone who is seriously suspecting the Proud Boys of starting fires.

More likely, they would be out volunteering to help evacuate people. Random violence isn't really their thing, unlike the other group, or like the media says nongroup.

It's funny that Proud Boys have gone national.
As of a year ago it was just a bunch of dorks that hung out around where I lived that were cool with casual racism.
Guess they had a flair for internet branding.

This is absolutely stupid. You have to add three Xs because the guys name is in the matrix x x and he uses three Xs and the algorithm on contractor talk changes them to Asterix

The video is pretty powerful

Re: Medford Oregon Evacuations


I saw photos of power poles in Wa state chain sawed nearly through.

So that high winds would knock them over and light fires.
