  1. RWNJs are already trying to blame the Camp Fire on liberals/environmentalists. “They wouldn’t let us thin the forests and they killed all those people in Paradise”.

    Those nut jobs have also been accusing Jerry Brown and others of using global warming to dodge responsibility for those fires.

    It’s seriously unhinged, and frankly I wouldn’t be surprised if some nut jobs act out violently because of this.

    One counter the “California liberals are responsible for the fires” talking-point might be to point out that in 2011, about 4 million acres of land and thousands of homes were burned by wildfires in Texas. There’s very little public land in Texas, so the fires there certainly can’t be blamed on government land-management agencies.

    See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_Texas_wildfires for details.

    In addition, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma have been hammered by large wildfires in the past decade. There’s very little public land (and very few granola-munching enviromentalists) in those states.

    So were liberals and environmentalists responsible for the big fires in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska? (Asking for a friend.)
