We have these people in Minnesota, too

It happened in Brooklyn Park, which has nothing to do with New York — it’s a Minneapolis suburb. Biden supporters/antifa/anarchists attacked this poor man, setting his truck on fire and defacing his garage with graffiti.

Oh, the vandalism! The destruction!

Molla reported to police that someone set fire to his camper “because it had a Trump 2020 flag displayed on it,” and spray painted the Antifa or anarchy symbol, “BLM” and “Biden 2020” on his garage door.

Those darn liberals. That’s an incoherent mess on that door — anarchists tend not to favor establishment politicians. Whoever painted that doesn’t even know how to spray paint an anarchy symbol properly. Like this, OK? It’s easy.

Except…it looks like the not-very-bright “victim,” Denis Vladmirovich Molla, was simply practicing a typical Republican grift that he learned from his masters.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Molla actually lit the fire and defaced the garage himself.

Court documents show that Molla then “submitted multiple insurance claims seeking coverage for the damage to his garage, camper, vehicles, and residence caused by the fire.”

Molla submitted insurance claims totaling more than $300,000, receiving only $61,000 in the process. He then accused his insurance company of “defrauding him.” Court documents show he also yielded more than $17,000 from two GoFundMe accounts.

Oops. Never mind.

    How did I know that’s where this story was going even before I read it? I must be psychic. Kinda like the vast voter fraud narrative his master promotes when most of the actual cases of voter fraud that I’ve seen involved Chump fans.

    I remember when this happened. Pretty much everyone called it at the time, and it caused Vaush to start calling himself an “anarcho-bidenist”

    With everything going on, I derive a small amount of hope from the incompetence and total lack of curiosity of our political enemies. As with so much else, it would have been trivially easy to make this more convincing, but that would have required actually learning about other people and their beliefs.

    That same incurious nature seems to be present throughout our ruling class, and I feel like it’s something we ought to be able to exploit.

    @Abe, is that the ruling class or the drooling class? I’m having ever so much trouble telling them apart these days.

    @robro, yeah, had that feeling going in as well. Rerun week, I guess.

    Let us not forget, the major problem troubling the president is not honourable Republicans like this, but “activists” who demonstrate and kick up a fuss.
    In my opinion, those who ignore reality over and over again do not deserve the benefit of doubt. This is the second Buchanan presidency.

    When I was younger, and more ambitious, I burned a confederate flag hanging from my neighbor’s pickup. This was a full sized flag from a very small pickup. Like 90s ford ranger size. I figured that the damn thing was a road hazard. Imagine if it tore loose on the freeway and stuck to someone’s windshield.

    So I waited until it was a misty early spring night to prevent the fire spreading and I hit it with a bit of kerosene.

    This the same bunch that claims that liberals are fascist. They don’t understand politics outside of their binary worldview, If it isn’t the mixture of white supremacy, Christian nationalism, and cut-throat capitalism that is American conservatism, then it’s EVIL!

    #2 Abe Drayton:
    This is sad, but also deeply funny, because it reminds me of those people who try to pass for Black people online by speaking a bunch of AAVE gibberish. We spot them every single time because to successfully pass as part of The Culture, would require them to immerse themselves in it, which would of course eliminate their desire to pass in the first place.

  8. lochaber says

    kinda reminds me of various protest signs I saw a few years back, and some of the antifa contingent were holding ones that said “good night alt-right” with some image of that Spencer nazi getting punched.

    Soon after, I started seeing proudboys and other nazi variants holding “good night anitfa” signs, and it was just pitiful that they seem to have a reflexive desire to adopt and imitate the inverse of whatever bit of catchy or clever rhetoric or catchphrase their “enemy” is using, without understanding why it’s catchy or clever (like, the rhyme present in “good night alt-right”, but distinctly lacking in “good night antifa”)

    Well. Kudos on double dipping with the GoFundMe but only $17k? That’s seriously small potatoes for this sort of thing. He must have come across as a bit of an ass even to them (but not an entertaining one).
