In a shocking turn of events, an individual connected to the Democratic party has been apprehended by authorities for allegedly causing a massive fire that devastated Yosemite National Park. The destructive blaze occurred in July 2022, resulting in the destruction of over 100 homes and causing injuries to numerous firefighters. While Democratic politicians initially attributed the catastrophe to climate change, authorities have now directed their attention to Edward Fredrick Wackerman, a resident of Mariposa, Calif., who has been charged with aggravated arson.
According to government records, Wackerman, whose true identity is Edward Fredrick Wackerman, has made donations totaling $1,775 to Democratic candidates and committees since 2020. These contributions include a $1,000 donation to Tim Ryan’s unsuccessful U.S. Senate campaign in 2022 and $400 to the Lincoln Project, a controversial liberal super PAC.
The Oak Fire engulfed 127 homes and 66 outbuildings across an area of 30 square miles, leading to the evacuation of 6,000 individuals. The smoke from the fire extended over 200 miles, reaching Nevada and the San Francisco Bay Area. Although Wackerman is currently facing charges of aggravated arson, specific details about the fire’s origin have not been disclosed.
These recent revelations cast doubt on the claims made by Democrats in the aftermath of the catastrophe. Senator Padilla commended the firefighters and emphasized the urgency of climate action, while former Vice President Gore drew attention to the severe consequences of climate change.
