Anyone else noticing a deluge of false

of social media posts about Antifa/BLM/Minorities/Democrats starting the fires?

Its absolutely insane. The antifa that I know have been volunteering to house people who have evac'd, or are collecting relief supplies and water and running them out to where they are needed.

Im wondering how much of this is coming out of Russia, and how much is our home grown terrorist cells jumping to their masters calls.

Its doubly insane that we have to deal with this in the midst of our double disaster. But I hope yall that can are out there doing your best to stop it as it pops up.

Just a little side note.. A mask that works to resist chemical weapons will likely work well against smoke.

4. I'm sure it's coming direct from the MAGAts...

...just like, a week or so after George Floyd’s death, just as protests were starting to happen in the suburbs instead of just the cities, suburban business owners were getting contacted by “sympathetic” sources (including, as I understand, some individual police), warning them they’d heard that Antifa was planning to burn down their business that night. As a result, there were massive “Antifa is coming!!!” scares, bringing out the MAGAts in their pickups to “protect” those businesses with semiautomatics…and when, of course, “antifa“ never showed up, the narrative became that the libtard terrorist snowflakes had been scared off by the brave patriotic manly men and their Second Amendment solution.

5. That was my first thought

But this has, at least in my viewed areas, been incredibly more intense in blanketing coverage.

7. I think Trump Inc. is pushing it. He's priming one faction of society to harm another. Antifa

could become climate change activists opposed to logging in a few years. Physical violence against the targeted political group will be OK.

10. That counter rumor is out

And while I'd believe almost anything about the PB MAGA types, even I have a hard time believing that.
