Alex Jones “QAnon” Fan Started California Wildfires

"Clark appeared to be a fan of Alex Jones and InfoWars, which were recently banned by platforms like Apple and Facebook."


Clark also pushed other Deep State-style conspiracy theories, including Agenda 21 — which claims the United Nations will effectively eliminate Americans’ sovereign rights — and Jade Helm, which posited that a 2015 military exercise would provide cover for the Obama administration to impose martial law.

Southern California’s Holy Fire, sparked on Monday, has already scorched more than 18,000 acres as of Friday morning and forced over 20,000 residents to flee.

Now, authorities have identified the man suspected of igniting the massive blaze.

On Wednesday, local officials arrested 51-year-old Forrest Gordon Clark, charging him with two counts of felony arson, as well as another felony charge of threatening to terrorize.

After the charges were announced, the Washington Post reported that Clark had texted a local firefighter before the fire that the area was “going to burn just like we planned.” (It was unclear who else Clark may have been referring to). Clark is currently being held on $1 million bond.

For instance, Clark recently started pushing messaging around “QAnon,” a bizarre theory that a global Deep State network is trying to bring down President Donald Trump in order to further their nefarious aims. While there’s no indication Clark was among the QAnon supporters who have become increasingly prominent at Trump rallies, he nonetheless pushed pro-QAnon videos on his page.

  1. The Car fire , was started by a trailer rim hitting the road. The intersection of wild land & urban development is a good example of how the timber industry clear cutting , was made to properly manage what they left behind.
    Thus, the primary issue, is bad building practices, poor timber management, and ruthless capitalism.
    Native Americans managed many areas for centuries with planned fires. The town I was born in in upstate NY near the Pa line, had in it’s original charter history, the cutting of a 280 foot white pine. The tallest trees now, even in protected old growth is 100. The movie “The Lorax” is actually a work of genius.

  2. California wildfires have a lesson about keeping an even keel. Myself and many others used to say, let the fires burn, and could have easily been considered maniacs and got strange looks and the such. Turns out, fighting them doesn’t do much, so the current scientific sense is to let them burn. Duh.
    Police and Firemen, are primarily to protect assets of the wealthy. The forest and shrubs on fire with a stiff wind is a meaningless effort in most cases. 80% of the money is just being wasted trying to fight fires in areas where they naturally occur,… and folks should focus on the timber industry and how everything got that way.
    Growing non-high hemp would have replaced all the timber we cut, and must now replant ourselves.
