Something odd appears to be happening across America: In the past six months, 18 U.S. food processing plants have reportedly burned down, and Twitter has questions.
“This is an odd coincidence,” remarked Wall Street Silver, who posted a collage of headlines from Texas, Nebraska, Oregon, Tennessee, California, and more, all screaming “Fire!”
“Anyone else been following this?” the hugely popular Catturd asked Thursday.
If users weren’t following the story before, they are now. The tweet was retweeted nearly 7,000 times in just 13 hours.
The latest fires come on the heels of a warning in late March from President Joe Biden that food shortages “are gonna be real,” spawning whispers of conspiracies across social media.
One Twitter user who is in the crop protection business has been following the fires closely and says, “None of it’s normal or usual — PLANNED.”
And Greg Musselwhite posted a list of fires and dates along with the comment, “This can’t be coincidental.”
“Yes… there was another plane that crashed into a food processing plant tonight,” tweeted Kimberly Morin. “WTF is going on and why isn’t the media OR the GD government talking about this?”
Nerves were made rawer following a warning this week from the International Money Fund (IMF) that the world must ready itself for an economic slowdown and the violence that often comes with it.
As reported in BizPac Review, the IMF “is warning that the world must brace for a significant economic slowdown, explosive inflation, and potential violent societal unrest due to skyrocketing energy and food prices as famine and depression loom in the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.”
