Family Farm Torched After Flying Trump 2020 Flag, Coincidence?
This story just doesn't pass the sniff test. We have a farmer, whose livelihood was torched mysteriously. Sometime around 7 a.m. on Thursday morning Jonathan Rempel in Sutton Nebraska received a phone call from the volunteer fire department that his combine, two semis, and a tractor had all been torched.
Reports show that the equipment all sat at a 'safe distance' from one another in Rempel's cornfield and there was evidence that the equipment had not been operated since the night before but somehow it all went up in smoke- at the same time? Yeah, it sounds fishy.
In an interview with KTIC Radio, Rempel avoided making political connections to the fire, but he did confirm that two flags in support of President Donald Trump were on his combine.
Rempel shared his story on Facebook but did not bring up the Trump flag or turn it into a political post- even once. He did note that his equipment should not have just caught fire all at once. Especially because they were set a distance apart. He explains more in his post, writing:
"No one wants to read about sad stories or pain on Facebook, but we believe we need to share this to the larger community of friends that we have both near and far.
Today was a hard day. I received a call this morning at 7 am while helping get the kids ready for school. The call was from the Sutton volunteer fire department. They were calling to tell me that all of my harvest equipment at the field was on fire and they were putting it out. We can not say thank you enough to the Sutton and Clay Center VFD's who responded to the early call.
Apparently, sometime early this morning our combine and corn head, tractor, and two semi's all caught fire at about the same time while being parked at a safe distance from each other. We are devastated and crushed by the enormous loss we face from this fire, but at the same time are incredibly blessed to be from rural America, where the people are the best. Both of our phones have blown up with a huge out-pouring of support from friends, family, business partners, and strangers. People offering their physical help, their operational help, and offers of food and meals in this time of tragedy. These people are already stretched thin, are stressed and tired, but are taking time to reach out, and offer help and aid in a time of need. We are so incredibly blessed by everyone!!!
Words can't do justice to explain both the emotional lows, and support that we have experienced just since early this morning. We are thankful no one was injured during the incident. Things can definitely be replaced....people can't.
Again, we want to extend our sincere appreciation to everyone who has reached out to us today. Love, The Rempels"
Investigators noted that the fires are still under investigation and have not released the exact cause, as of yet, but come on...
