The following are photos taken on Friday, September 20, 2013 at the Ronald Reagan Sports Park in Temecula, California. The Reagan statue and monument was likely vandalized either the night before or in the early morning hours of Friday September 20. The cause of the damage appears to be vandalism by arson. Local police were called to the scene and an investigation is ongoing.
- Photo of the Reagan Monument with missing damaged tiles.
- The missing/vandalized tiles were removed by city staff ... notice the burn marks at the base of the structure.
- Burned/damaged tiles on both side of the monument were reportedly removed by the city.
- Burn marks at the base of the monument.
- The soot I wiped off of the base with my finger.
- More soot that I wiped off with my finger from the Reagan statue hat.
- More damage ... the burning apparently burned a plant and damaged an after dark illumination light.
- Standing Tall. Despite this outrageous act by neo-fascist hooligan punks, Ronaldus Maximus still shines on.
On March 3, 1983, President Ronald Reagan, in a speech before the United States Olympic Committee, paid tribute to the nation's can-do spirit, specifically citing the volunteers and donors of Temecula, among others. He said:
"The folks in a rather small town, Temecula...got together and built themselves a sports park, held fund-raising barbecues and dinners. And those that didn't have money, volunteered the time and energy. And now the young people of that community have baseball diamonds for Little League and other sports events, just due to what's traditional Americanism."

Communists / Socialists don’t like Reagan too much...
Whoever did this should be shot off one of the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan’s catapults in the middle of the ocean.
“Standing Tall. Despite this outrageous act by neo-fascist hooligan punks, “
Great work, thank you.
Will vandalizing REAGAN’S statue be a “hate crime”,liberals.......?
MSNBC host: “White boy beaten by blacks on bus isn’t hate crime,but vandalizing a STATUE of Jackie Robinson IS”........
makes me want to make a very unchristian comment
He needs to publicize this huge. The dem code. Scorched earth. How long will it be until we have scorched people?
Looks like his statue weathered just fine.
Libtards lose again.
They can’t touch his legacy.
Speaking of RR, Nancy Reagan’s been on my mind today, anyone know how she’s doing?
The “Legislative arsonists” Nancy Pelousy talked about? City staff we be sure to destroy all evidence as they probably hate Reagan now too. Just another sign there’s a war going on.
I doubt there was a political motivation.
It is like vandalizing,a statue of Walt Disney. Impossible, although entirely probable.
I can’t wait for the obama memorial to go up.
If it’s any consolation, the “after” pic just looks like Ronnie put in a hard day’s work, no worse for the wear. Eh what’s a little soot. The man known as the “man in black” - Johnny Cash - is an American icon, so the vandals inadvertantly reinforced the concept.
More liberal love and tolerance.
Grandpappy told my pappy
Back in my day, son
A man had to answer
For the wicked that he'd done
Take all the rope in Texas
Find a tall oak tree
Round up all of them bad boys
And hang 'em high in the street
For all the people to see
And justice is the one thing
You should always find
You gotta saddle up your boys
You gotta draw a hard line
When the gun smoke settles
We'll sing a victory tune
Looks like a Hate Crime to me.
This piece of 'art' is called 'Traffic' and was 'dumped' into Confederation Square by the National Capital Commission in 1969; an example of government funding.
Another piece of 'art' entitled Complex Pile by U.S. artist Paul McCarthy was on display at the waterfront of West Kowloon Cultural District in Hong Kong. Perhaps after the exhibit ends, Mr. McCarthy might be willing to donate it as a memorial to Resident 0.00bama. It would sit nicely in front of Barry's Residential Library in Kenya!
This is so sad. To hell with the Marxist punks who did this.
Regardless of how they felt about Reagan, that was a very nice message about the sports park that they took down.
Liberals are the most petty, mean-spirited people on the planet.
There’s a reckoning coming,,
R@t B@stards is too kind a term for the perps who did this...
What a wonderful likeness of President Ronald Reagan... I'm so glad the statue didn't sustain any damage.
Perfect for Obozo's future presidential LIEbrary... ;-)
Beautiful likeness of President Reagan! Even without the vandalism damage pictured above, it looks like the statue today has discolored and fallen into a bit of disrepair... :-(
What a sad world we are living in...I hope we can survive the coming 3 years..2016 can’t come fast enough..
wake up America..no more Clinton’s..no more obama’s either..
Hahaha, you win!
Bless you for posting this DogByte6RER! Bless you!
Another example of how Barack the Kenyan has “fundamentally transformed” our America into the sewer of the world.
It was torched, probably with gas poured on it or something. Some thugs probably have a video of it since EVERYTHING is videoed these days!
No they don’t, do they. All these years later.
Guess he really did leave a mark.
He was the last American President. He loved AND BELIEVED IN us.
It makes me smile and proud to see Ronald Reagan’s face and form. Do miss him very much and what he stands for.
Thank you for reporting this. I hope the perps are caught quickly and punished to the fullest extent of the law.
Any chances for witnesses? Close to homes, etc.
Ironic, after Reagan said the kind words about to people of Temecula... this is the payback.
That’s probably next. For now, they’re satisfied with the surge of black-on-white attacks roiling this country.
More than likely it was hooligans/gang members/mischievous youth—with a political motivation.
Can you imagine the public, and especially the media reaction, if that had been a statue of say Cesar Chavez? You bet there would be media coverage of that, and don’t you think one of those teleprompter reading, idiot newsreaders would be aiming the blame towards the right?
Ronaldus Magnus is an inspirational guy even as a statue, even after it has been torched.
I hope there are now video cameras installed. So sad that we need such vigilance against the leftist animals that surround us.
This along with the threat that a black mob might kill you just because you are white.
Oh oh man I wish I was there when they were doing it, take some batting practice on their heads. *POK!* Home run!
Jeepers... thanks for the ping!
Go right ahead. Jesus will forgive you. He was no peacenik.
Yeah. It won’t be too long before the smell will be too bad for anyone to be able to approach it without a gas mask.
