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.
