Ah, the wondrous world of Democrats!
From passionate protests to the alleged penchant for pyrotechnics, their thirst for drama truly seems insatiable.
What’s on their plate now, you ask?
Forget peaceful rallies and holding placards.
The new trend, dear reader, is arson on wheels!
In a bizarre and perplexing twist, a mysterious cyclist with apparently combustible intentions set private property ablaze.
Not content with the usual march or shout, this individual felt the need to literally ‘fan the flames’ of political tension.
As if the nation needed more sparks!
But here’s where things get spicy!
John Kane, perhaps hoping to douse this new inferno of unrest, is offering a cool $1,000 reward to anyone who can identify the fire-starting cyclist.
Think that’s generous?
Enter Tim Pool, upping the ante with an additional $5,000!
That’s a grand total of $6,000 on the table for any eagle-eyed observer with information.

WATCH: Deranged Cyclist Sets ‘Trump Won’ Sign On Fire In North Carolinahttps://t.co/Vp6zhj6Osw

The message is loud and clear: this isn’t your average game of Clue. It’s a full-blown bounty hunt!
So, to our dear readers, we ask: Got a lead?
Know someone who loves both bikes and bonfires a tad too much?
Well, a hefty reward could be yours for the taking!
It’s a race against the flames, folks!
And with $6k at stake, especially in this economy, the heat is on.
Who will be the first to identify this blazing biker?
Could it be one of our readers?
The Daily Mail has more details:
The bizarre moment a cyclist vented his rage at a pro-Trump political yard sign in North Carolina has been caught on camera.
John Kane, a Raleigh businessman and local Republican political activist, posted home surveillance video of the incident on the social media site X on Friday, offering a $1,000 reward for the perpetrator’s identity.
The video shows a road cyclist, fully kitted in helmet and spandex, stopping and weakly kicking the yard sign outside Kane’s home on August 12, to no effect.
Then in the early hours of August 15, a man who appears to be the same individual, wearing similar cycling gear, is again seen on camera setting fire to the sign, which proclaims, ‘Trump Won’.
Attorney James R. Lawrence III, a partner at Envisiage Law, said he is representing Kane, who plans to sue the arsonist once he is identified.
‘Regardless of what the Wake County District Attorney’s office does with this video, accountability is coming,’ wrote Lawrence on X.
The attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment from DailyMail.com on Saturday afternoon.
Kane is a conservative activist in North Carolina, and recently ran for the chairmanship of the state’s GOP Party.
As children, we’re taught the value of respect: for our elders, for authority, and yes, for property – whether it’s ours or not.
Yet, in Raleigh, North Carolina, one man’s vehement disagreement with a “Trump Won” sign transcended mere disapproval.
Repeated acts of defacement and destruction have left a community in shock and disbelief, making many of us wonder: has political disdain really come to this?
While disagreements are a natural, even healthy part of the political process, one deranged cyclist decided that his political views warranted arson.
Surveillance footage captured the man in a near-comical, albeit unsettling, repetitive display of hostility.
At first, the man seemed to be engaging in a personal vendetta against the sign – unable to do much more than give it a few ineffectual kicks during his initial visit.
However, as if to prove that his disgruntlement was far from fleeting, the man returned.
Not once, but twice, each time armed with fiery intent.

Help Identify This Radical Who Set Fire to a “Trump Won” Sign https://t.co/vgLwyDI2Mv

By August 15th, under the shroud of night, the man, donning his cycling attire, took things up a notch.
To burn the sign, and with it, the voice of its owner.
But the homeowner’s resolve was not to be so easily extinguished.
A new sign was promptly erected, echoing the sentiments of the first.
But alas, just days later, our disgruntled cyclist made his final fiery encore, incinerating the replacement sign.
The National File confirms this act of arson:
A violently anti-Trump bicyclist was caught on surveillance video in North Carolina kicking a “Trump Won” lawn sign that he passed on his bike ride, before later returning to the scene and lighting the sign on fire. The owner of the sign is offering a $1,000 reward to whoever can identify the assailant.
Security footage recorded over the course of several days in Raleigh, North Carolina shows a bicyclist, who appears to be an elderly white man, damaging and eventually destroying the “Trump Won” yard sign, returning day after day until the job was done.
Initially, on August 12th in broad daylight, the man can be seen on security footage pulling up to the “Trump Won” yard sign on his bicycle before kicking it several times and failing to actually inflict any damage, eventually riding off.
A few days later, on August 15th, security footage shows the man, outfitted in cycling chaps and a bicycle helmet, returning under the cover of darkness and setting the “Trump Won” yard sign on fire. Shots taken from the security camera the next morning show that the sign was completely burned, but was promptly replaced with another “Trump Won” banner.
Then, on August 18th (the date is mislabeled in the video), the bicyclist returned, once again outfitted in his bicycling gear, and set the new sign ablaze, completely destroying that one as well.
To some, it may be just a sign.
To others, a political statement.
But at its core, this is an issue that goes beyond partisan lines.
It’s a reminder of the dire need for civility, understanding, and respect in today’s increasingly divided America.
As the owner of the sign puts forth a reward for the identification of this fiery felon, one can’t help but wish for a simpler solution – a return to a time when bicycles were for leisurely rides, and political disagreements didn’t end in flames.
