Just saying what I hear and what I see, not what the TV tells me.
The panic in Oregon appeared to stem from a woman in a Facebook group called Molalla NOW, meant for locals to share information about community events.
The post, which Trumbly shared a screenshot of on Twitter, claimed he and Paulsen had started a fire and misidentified them as “two guys wearing gas masks and ‘press’ vests.” It quickly garnered hundreds of reactions and replies. “It blew up with comments!” Paulsen said. “People were saying, ‘Send people out with guns!’ It said we were antifa.” Paulsen, who graduated from Molalla High School, even knew some of the people in the group. Now she and Trumbly were being hunted by a group of armed men on the town’s streets.
At this time, the connection to lefti-wing extremists is not proven, but strongly suspected by many. Whether it's Antifa, BLM, climate-change activists, organized, or just a bunch of independent fire-bugs might take some time and investigation to uncover.
What I don't get is the vehement to defend this organization. It is one thing to be skeptical of the claims against them, but to outright say that it absolutely isn't them is illogical.

I’m not left or right, and I don’t watch Tv.
So your telling me, a Good friend, who lives in the area, who had no reason to lie to me, IS WORST THAN LISTENING TO THE MSM?
That’s a funny world you live in.

Or, the biggsreport is making stuff up for clicks. Seems more likely than police lying to protect a group of people that want them defunded and sent packing.
If you can produce evidence of biggsreport being a credible news site and not some guys blog, I’ll change my view.
