Trumper Sets Own Camper on Fire to Own the Libs

Oh, and committed insurance fraud to boot.

CBS Minnesota (“Charges: Man lit his camper on fire, defaced own garage to appear targeted due to Trump flag“):

A Brooklyn Center man faces federal charges after he lit his own camper on fire to make it look like a politically-motivated crime, and then allegedly filed several fraudulent insurance claims.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Denis Vladmirovich Molla, 29, is charged with two counts of wire fraud in connection with the fire that took place on September 23, 2020.

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 symbol, “BLM” and “Biden 2020” on his garage door. 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.

I’m reminded of the classic line from Charlie Daniels’ “Uneasy Rider,” — “I ain’t even got a garage! You can call home and ask my wife.”

    But we can be assured that he sees himself as the victim.

    Insurance fraud–what an idiot. That will follow him for the rest of his life.

    Stupidity is expensive.

    He should pursue a claim that liberal stole his brain.

    Obama made him do it.

    There’s a single word that perfectly describes Denis. What can it be? I’m thinking…ah, yes. I have it.

    17k in gofund me money? That’s a lot of sheeple.

  7. wr says:

    I do have to wonder… did he plan this whole thing to smear the libs and then decide to collect insurance to make himself whole? Or did he plan to commit insurance fraud and then thought it would be fun to blame Antifa while he was at it?

    I know it doesn’t make a lot of difference, but the former guy is just too stupid to live, while the latter one is simply a scumbag…

    @Jc: I need to remember to set up a gofundme sometime in early December to compensate me for the mental suffering, anguish and lack of work when a transgender person with blue hair withes me happy holidays.

    “He looked me dead in the eye as he handed me the receipt and said ‘Happy Holidays, Mr. Tortoisebanger.’ He let me know that he knew who I was, and where I lived, and that he was coming, and now I’m out here guarding my CHRISTmas lights with a shotgun and I can’t work. I got a family to feed.”
