The damaged tiles on the Ronald Reagan Sports Park Monument read as follows:

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."

Whoever did this should be shot off one of the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan’s catapults in the middle of the ocean.

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”........

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 don't like it either, but more than likely it was hooligans/gang members/mischievous youth.

I doubt there was a political motivation.

It is like vandalizing,a statue of Walt Disney. Impossible, although entirely probable.

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.

Git a Rope.

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

Wiskey for my Men, Beer For My Horses

A memorial to Pres__ent 0.00bama is already here and has resided in Ottawa, Canada for the past 45 years!

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!

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.

Excellent work and reporting, DogByte6RER! Thank you for updating us on this very sad situation.

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.

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... :-(

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.

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.

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?
