Yesterday, Booman Tribune passed along a report from Deadline Hollywood that Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame had been destroyed by a man with a pick-axe. It was the latest of a series of defacements of the sidewalk monument since Trump began running for President. In the spirit of a picture being worth 1000 words, and moving pictures being worth even more than that, I'm sharing CNN's video report of the incident: Trump's Hollywood star destroyed.
Los Angeles police are looking for the man who destroyed Donald Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star with a sledgehammer and a pickaxe.ODN has reaction and follow-up in Destroyed: Donald Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame Star.
Donald Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame Star destroyed by vandals...Report by Lydia Batham.While this is certainly an escalation and a direct insult to Trump, I don't consider it to be a Weimar Moment. That would involve violence between groups of Trump supporters and Trump opponents, such as in Chicago and San Jose. This isn't violence against people; it's just highly visible vandalism. In that way, "Jamie Otis" (probably not his real name) is behaving like the Earth Liberation Front. They primarily targeted property, too. Just the same, I didn't approve of the ELF's tactics then and I don't approve of this action now. Don't trash symbols of the opposition--vote!
