Okay so i went to google. I searched "Antifa starting fires"

Page 1, every such claims are false. Page 2, exact same thing.

So regarding an issue like this, if the police and google are screaming the same thing, i am going to confidently say it was and it is Antifa.

The same Oregon where many police are being told to not enforce riot and looting laws.

So why should anybody automatically believe there's no ANTIFA connections to fires ?

Rioters and looters have started 100's of fires in the cities, so why not in forests ?

If you have antifa arsonists, that is not political. Remember, these Antifa people are the type of anarchists that will destroy to prove their point, they will stomp on the serenity of anyone who does not believe as they do. It is not politics that drives these chaotic people but they hide behind politics so they can get away with more. Any excuse is open to them causing chaos, they love the anarchy game.

Why do the Democrats try to protect these people, they are not good people, they love to disrupt society and will turn on Democrats in a heartbeat.

What does this have to do with wildfires in Oregon?


What it is showing, is lone wolf antifa actors starting fires on camera, with political bias.

If they are willing to do it on camera, in the city, then why not in the woods, no camera and a lot of white privilege nearby.

Think beyond what those who want to control every aspect of your life want you to believe.

Fires do not start themselves. It can be the electric grid, some one with a match, or lightning. How many storms have you had lately?

When i saw the photos couple days ago, my first thought was 'arson'. There's definitely people out there who are willing and wanting to destroy nature! 10 or so years ago, I thought it to be Aliens because they may need a different atmosphere to be able to live on this planet... I still think today the same thing or its those antifa lot.

If ANTIFA wasn’t starting fires to destroy people and property they certainly will be after they read this thread and decide it sounds like a good idea.

No, anti-fascists have not been arrested in connection with wildfires ravaging Oregon, and public officials are asking people to stop spreading the various false rumors claiming this to be the case.

Some mainstream conservative pundits and a major police trade publication, as well as conspiracy theorists aligned with QAnon, have all promoted the false narrative about the historically destructive and deadly wildfires.

While investigators are looking into arson as the possible cause of at least one fire, authorities say there is no evidence to suggest the arson is politically motivated. Utility providers have said some fires may have been started by downed power lines during historic winds and heat. Red flag wildfire warnings have been in effect for the better part of a week.

People pushing the conspiracy theories have largely pointed to the Almeda fire, which Ashland Police Chief Tighe O’Meara confirmed has spurred a criminal investigation. O’Meara said rumors claiming anti-fascists were involved are “100% false information.”

Surprise. Surprise. The rumors regarding Antifa starting fires are false. It is true there is one case of possible arson but investigators have found no political motives.

I first heard about these rumors when I started hearing stories of militia groups setting up checkpoints and threatening people documenting the fire. Not to mention the people that wanted to posse up and kill "antifa" on sight.

The fact that major Conservative figures in the state are pushing these unfounded rumors is especially disturbing. And if anyone ends up dead due to vigilante mobs it will be on their heads.


blaming everything on antifa wont resolve anything...you guys manage to make a forest fire about politic...

So you believe anonymous posters on ATS and Facebook over the people who actually work and risk their life to put out those fires?
