    In the early morning hours of Thursday, Oct. 15th, several local fire departments responded to a fire in rural Clay County, NE.

    Jonathan Rempel said he was getting his two children ready for school on Thursday when he received a phone call from the Sutton Volunteer Fire Department.

    “They said Your harvest equipment is on fire,” Rempel recalled. “All of it.”

    According to the Nebraska State Fire Marshal’s office, the fire destroyed a combine, two trucks and trailers filled with grain, a tractor, and a grain cart.

    Rempel described the location of the fire as a ‘very rural area’, two miles off the two-lane highway.

    Photographs from the fire have been shared widely on social media, suggesting the fire was politically driven and arson.

    Rempel avoided making the political connection in his Facebook post, sharing the news of the fire. He did confirm that two flags in support of President Donald Trump were on his combine.

    Flags and signs in support of President Donald Trump are not uncommon in Nebraska this year. Numerous farmers have used their harvest equipment as rolling billboards this election year.

    The Fire Marshal’s office told the Rural Radio Network that the investigation into the fire is ongoing.

    Yet the MSM will not cover this obvious attempt to suppress the vote by radical, violent, socialist democrats.

    The Left certainly doesn’t believe in freedom of speech.
    If you see people burning the American flag and yell that those people should be arrested, the Left will scream 1st Amendment rights!
    By putt up some TRUMP flags on you tractor, well they’ll just burn down your tractor. And maybe your livelihood.

    There is a gofundme account up, but I can't confirm if it's real or not so I won't post it.

    He needs to get an old and expendable piece of equipment, put Trump flags on it, and surround it with boards with nails.

    Thought of that, but it is proof of the booby trap of nails. LE doesn't mind if they torch your farm equipment, but setting out nails is vigilantism and vigilantism is wrong.

    Or insurance fraud. I'm sure they're looking into that angle as well.

    Possibility, but doubtful in the middle of harvest. :)

    Just sick, from a young boy growing up on a farm, the loss is well over 1 million 500K
    Combines are a,major,farmer purchase, todays bells and whistles combines are upwards of 800K to over 1 mil depending on the brand, and motor, extras, etc.
    To fathom burning up a farmers equipment is just insane. The people who did this are pure heartless monsters.

    The farmer needs to be ready in the spring to plant for his livelihood, I hope someone opens their mouth, and this POS is caught and gets every possible charge in the arsonists nook thrown at him.

    Sick, just pure sick!
    Domestic terrorism! If you say otherwise your a leftist scum too.

    As I've said numerous times, the people who think they are immune from this crap because they live in the sticks need to wake up.
