A statue unveiled last year at a California park is heavily damaged following an attack by an unknown number of vandals. The monument, bearing a life-size likeness of Ronald Reagan, was heavily burned in what is being called an apparent arson.
The man many conservatives consider America’s greatest modern president was immortalized in bronze to welcome visitors to a Temecula, Calif., sports park that bears his name. Authorities report the torched statue was left blackened after the vandalism, indicating several surrounding decorative tiles were destroyed in the process.
Standing tall in the state for which he once served as governor, the Reagan monument is still in one piece. The charred sculpture will require extensive repairs to once again capture its previous luster, though.
Law enforcement sources say they have no suspects and cannot suggest a possible motive behind the crime.
Whether it was a random act or a pointed political statement against the 40th president, anyone capable of such senseless destruction embraces a selfish ideology completely foreign to the great man whose memorial was burned.
The entire reason for the park’s renaming in 2004 was Reagan’s support of the self-sufficient destination. More than two decades earlier, he heralded the achievements of locals in finishing the park without government assistance.
At the time, he applauded organizers who “got together and built themselves a sports park, held fundraising barbecues and dinners.”
While that generation put their collective ingenuity to good use by creating a recreational community park, degenerates of today want nothing more than to tear down those ideals.
In its own way, this narrative can serve as an analogy for the past 30 years of American history. Tremendous advances made during the conservative leadership of Ronald Reagan are being purposely destroyed by the Obama regime’s catastrophic leftist policies.
