“Sovereign Citizen” Accused of Setting Huge Southern California Wildfire

Many of the per­pe­tra­tors of may­hem in our soci­ety have been fol­low­ers of right-wing/­fas­cist ide­olo­gies, a fact that has not received due notice. In FTR #1011, we not­ed that Las Vegas shoot­er Stephen Pad­dock was a “Sov­er­eign Cit­i­zen” and Dim­itrios Pagourtzis (the accused Sante Fe, Texas school shoot­er) was influ­enced by online fas­cist ide­ol­o­gy. Accused Park­land High School shoot­er Niko­las Cruz was also influ­enced by Nazi ide­ol­o­gy, as were Columbine shoot­ers Har­ris and Kle­bold. Damon Pashilk–accused of set­ting the 2016 Clay­ton fire–was also influ­enced by Nazi ide­ol­o­gy. (One of his Face­book posts is pic­tured at right.) In FTR #1016, we learned that Jar­rod Ramos, accused of a mass gun­fire-killing at an Annapo­lis, Mary­land, news­pa­per, was a fol­low­er of the neo-Con­fed­er­ate move­ment. Now we learn that the iron­i­cal­ly-named For­rest Gor­don Clark–accused of set­ting the Holy Fire in South­ern California–is (like Pad­dock) a sov­er­eign cit­i­zen. With Cal­i­for­nia suf­fer­ing the effects of drought and with the Gold­en State in Trump’s polit­i­cal crosshairs, we should be pre­pared for more “lead­er­less resis­tance” wild­fire ter­ror­ism from fas­cists.

Extremism in the Defense of Stupidity is a Vice, Part 3: The Bundy Brigade’s Doomed Manifest Destiny

Ammon Bundy’s stand­off at the Mal­heur Nation­al Wildlife Refuge head­quar­ters is prov­ing to be as zany, dan­ger­ous, and gen­er­al­ly harm­ful to the pub­lic good as we might expect at this point giv­en the nature of the Bundy fam­i­ly’s for­ay into pol­i­tics and pol­i­cy-mak­ing in recent years. The Com­mit­tee of Safe­ty was set up last month, and is formed by indi­vid­u­als close­ly affil­i­at­ed with Bundy who sup­port cit­i­zen grand juries that can put on tri­al pub­lic offi­cials for trea­son and imple­ment the death penal­ty. And the Pacif­ic Patri­ots Net­work just decid­ed they were going to pro­tect both the gov­ern­ment and Bundy Brigade from each oth­er. With guns at the gates of the refuge head­quar­ters. And oth­er vets are declar­ing fraud, feds, and folks about to freak out have filled the whole oper­a­tion. And Ammon Bundy con­tin­ues to demand he’ll leave..but only after all his demands were met. Sher­iff Ward has had a rough month.
