In yet another instance of vandalism being used to get a point across, activists damaged the turf at Donald Trump’s prestigious National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, California Sunday with an etched message regarding climate change.

A group that calls themselves “anonymous environmental activist collective” has taken credit for the vandalism. They claim they speak for all environmental activists. Trump, who has disagreed with climate change theories and plans to cut the EPA’s budget by 25 percent, has yet to comment on the vandalism of his course.
The group that claimed their involvement spoke to a local ABC station in California to give further explanation on why they wrote the words “NO MORE TIGERS, NO MORE WOODS,” on the course.
“It’s a protest piece against Trump’s administration’s handling of our environmental policies,” the unnamed person said behind a voice changing machine. “He’s been very aggressive in gutting a lot of the policies that we’ve had in place for a very long time. We felt it necessary to stand up and go take action against him.”
The workers who found the vandalism, which appears to have been done with rakes, covered the etching with tarps until they could resod the grass.
The group also claimed it only took them one hour to complete, so doing it again would be “no problem.” According to the Washington Post, who interviewed one of the members, the group consisted of four men, who scaled the fence and walked through a thick patch of cacti.
This isn’t the first time Trump’s property had been vandalized since his election. In October, during a Black Lives Matter march, an alleged group of BLM protesters spray painted their group’s name on one of Trump’s brand new Washington hotels.
The golf course can be repaired, however destroying someone else’s property just because you disagree with their ideology or decisions is juvenile, to say the least.
Destroying a golf course will raise awareness to your “cause” for a few days, but after that, it will be forgotten. Just like you.
