A man in Vancouver, WA, just north of Portland returned to the bar he had left his truck at the night before to find charred remains of what used to be his Nissan Titan. On the previous night, Johnny MacKay opted to take an UBER home rather than take to the roads under the influence.

He left his truck in the parking lot, expecting to drive it back the next day. Except some anti-Trump terrorists got it to first, setting it on fire. A woman who lives across the street captured video of the truck ablaze at some point during the night.

KPTV reports:

A self-proclaimed supporter of Donald Trump says his pickup was vandalized and set ablaze because of two bumper stickers that endorsed the president.

MacKay says he had been at the bar drinking the night before and decided to take an Uber home, leaving his truck overnight.

“I was coming by this morning just to check it on my way to work and it was gone,” MacKay said.

The burnt truck had severe fire damage, most notably near the engine and within its interior. Its door were charred and the seats were melted.

The fire was reported by several 911 callers around 2:30 a.m. Monday, according to Vancouver Police. Officers say are the fire is suspicious.

“We hear a loud boom, we feel the boom, it shakes our bed,” said Myia Flores, who lives nearby. “Just opening the door and seeing the flames–it was like crazy, it was crazy to see.”

MacKay says he thinks the fire was not only intentional, but an attack on his political beliefs sparked by two Donald Trump stickers he had placed on his bumper. Not only did his truck burn, but someone also spray-painted “Trump” on the left side.

“It’s crazy,” MacKay said. “You watch the news, you see this stuff on television, you see the protests and the damage and stuff, you never think it’s going to happen to you.”

MacKay’s truck has since been towed from the lot. He said he had used the truck to drive for Uber and will now lose some of his income.

He said he has also already contacted his insurance company.

The bar’s owner told FOX 12 he is turning over surveillance video showing the flames to authorities. According to Vancouver Police, a fire marshall is also investigating.

“To destroy somebody else’s property, just because you don’t like how they think or because they have a difference of opinion–it’s absurd,” MacKay said.

    Open season on these antifa vermin.
    They have already declared war on folks who are not aligned with them politically.
    We neglect to take them at their word at our own peril.

    This anti trump campaign is going to far. Yes people have freedom of speech and I love that about our country. What these people do is not a freedom, it’s a crime. No reasonable person acts like this therefore this group is destroying the Democratic Party. I know I will not back their actions or political beliefs.
    Every avenue to find all involved should be used. Everyone involved should go to prison.

    Portland is getting quite the reputation – like our own little Mosul or Raqqa. But then you know what happened to those places.

    A12-year-old kid trick-or-treating in Virginia is ccommitting a misdemeanor and faces a jail sentence.

    Antifa destroys property and they are exercising their First Amendment right to petition their government.

    OK. Got it.

    Absurd! Yep, that’s the left! If it is confirmed ANTIFA was involved, I doubt the media will report it at all, like in Charlottesville last year.

    This is utter stupidity on antifas part. not only do you win anyone over, you actually turn people harshly against your existence! But, that works, by showing how corrupt and unprincipled the democrat party is, the GOP and Independent roles are swelling! And for many they are gearing up for the defend and repel of communist insurgents! So keep it up dirtbags your time is growing short and many are itching to put an end to you!

    Why wasn’t anyone arrested? The police are not doing their job unless the politicians are telling them to stand down.

    Police should be given “shoot to kill” orders on all Antifa scum. Liberals are evil.

    Find the liberal twerps and have them rebuild the truck. You can’t kill them but, you can make their life miserable.

    The police think it’s suspicious? WTF. Do you think the truck burst into flames by itself at 2:30am? If that wouldn’t be tricky enough, how did it spray paint “Trump” on itself too? Hilary says they do not have to be civil to the Republicans but these evil displays of violence by the left as simply not American. I expect this from the middle east countries but not here in the US.
