Caught On Video: "Environmental Activists" Deface Trump's Palos Verdes Golf Course

Tyler Durden's picture

A group of environmental activists defaced one of President Trump’s premier golf courses early on Sunday morning. The group, which calls itself an “anonymous environmental activist collective” snuck into Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, California and using six-foot-tall letters carved a message into the green that said: “NO MORE TIGERS. NO MORE WOODS.” The "activists" also released a 1 minute video documenting the trespassing in all its glory, a recording which also spliced footage made from a drone at the time of the event.

The 7,300-yard course, located in a peninsula just south of Los Angeles, was recently ranked the 43rd best course in California by Golf Digest.

In a statement sent to The Washington Post, the group said the vandalism was carried out in response to the Trump administration’s “blatant disregard” for the environment. “In response to the president’s recent decision to gut our existing protection policies, direct action was conceived and executed on the green of his California golf course in the form of a simple message: NO MORE TIGERS. NO MORE WOODS,” the statement said.

The message was carved into the green using gardening tools and took less than one hour to accomplish, according to a member of the group who discussed the project with The Washington Post on the condition of anonymity.

The group consisted of four people, who accessed the course by scaling a fence and “walking down a steep hill laced with cacti,” the group member told The Post. “Tearing up the golf course felt justified in many ways,” the member said.

“Repurposing what was once a beautiful stretch of land into a playground for the privileged is an environmental crime in its own right.” According to the law, it's also criminal trespassing and explains why the "activists" were all shrouded head and toe to avoid being recognized in the video.

Neither the golf course, nor the Trump Organization's NYC HQ respond to requests for comment.  A spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that the department received a call for service Sunday morning about grass being dug up around hole five at the golf club. The spokesman said the department sent a deputy to the scene to determine whether the damage constituted an act of vandalism or whether it was accidental. It was the former.

“We hope this sends a message to Trump and his corrupt administration that their actions will be met with action,” the member added. Previously farmland, Trump National Golf Club opened in November 2000. On its website, the club touts its dedication to “protecting the environmentally sensitive habitat that plays host to several protected plant species and the endangered Coastal California Gnatcatcher (a small migratory bird).”

As the WaPo renminds us, Sunday’s vandalism was merely the latest in a long series of attacks involving Trump properties; most recently, the president's brand-new Washington hotel was spray-painted with the words “Black Lives Matter” during a demonstration.

Thump will have a Twitter 'stroke'. As intended.

More brilliant tactics by the immature left... and so brave are they that they're ALWAYS masked.  The best part of all is that every time they pull one of these idiotic stunts, it sends thousands more into our camp.  Thanks, guys!  (Come to think of it... maybe it's Trump funding these folks.  You know... kinda like when jews paint swastikas on their own gravestones for sympathy?)

Doesn't matter to me whether they wear a mask or not; anyone coming toward me with a stick or other weapon gets stopped, cold.

It's called, "self-defense."

Someone should return the favour at congressional in DC..... Carve END THE FED into the 18th green.

I'm shocked at the level of hatred allowed towards the POTUS.... Wtf has happened to America?

These progresives are totally out of fucking control.

I think all who put their faith in politicians are out of control.

jeff montanye's picture

faith, yes, far too much, almost always too soon.  

hope, maybe, to keep morale up but stay realistic.  

time to monitor and advise/correct, pretty much the duty of every interested citizen, and i should think most should be interested a bit by now.

so here's my two cents mr. president: why are you protecting the cia which wants so badly to impeach you?  as well, why block at least some small accountability for the horrific police state clampdown pulled off by the bush administration after their false flag attack on 9-11?  is this administration going to be different from bush and obama or not?

Everything that the EPA does is already done on a State level. The federal environmental agency, the EPA is redundant. We can't afford the luxury of redundant government any longer. It is as simple as that.

Yeah, just try being a farmer in America...you can't move left, right, or center...much less even look cross-eyed at a pond or other body of water ON YOUR OWN LAND that you might want to alter, without having to bow obsequiously to the out-of-control NAZI EPA. Get your head out of your posterior, E I. You know nothing about the reality of the EPA!

Capture the snowflakes that did that and make them carry clubs at the course all Summer - no carts.

Oh yeah, and scrub the toilets in the public restrooms.

When the libtard Obama/Hillary supporters are not beating people up in SF at Berkely, they vandalize. Everyone needs a change of scenery.

Find the ring leader an dlock that person up for min 5 years. Sends a message to the underlings they may be next.

Criminal behavior has consequences.

I don't get it.  For starters, what do they mean by writing "No More Tigers / No More Woods?"  Tiger Woods is certainly a well known celebrity, arguably the best golfer in the world at the peak of his career a few years ago.  Is this supposed to constitute a personal threat to Tiger Woods? 

Maybe the vandals should have worn striped tiger suits. It would make about as much sense as pink vagina costumes.

I smell the actions of deranged neighbors. I bet the golf course pissed off some local crackpots when it was originally proposed, and this is their weird way of venting frustration. The unique text style might be useful for identifying local graffitti taggers, especially if they have a history.

Painting "Black Lives Matter" seems equally nonsensical.  Like, "So what?"  If the goal is job creation, there are innumerable constructive and meaningful ways to do so that don't involve spoiling somebody else's property.

Crminal behaviour has consequences??

So Bill & Hill must be doing time.

Did I miss the news on that?

Probably some of the guys that had their surf hangout demolished in Lunada Bay last year.

 

They vandalized the contractors tools too during the process.

I guess they will have to change the Par on the hole until the green is fixed.

Anti-climatic(change) Animal House:

First: "Over? Did you say over? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell, no!"

Then: "Now we could do it with conventional weapons, but that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part!"

Really great start, right?

Then...

Yeah, let's go to Trump's Golf course and carve something in the grass about Tiger Woods!

I guess they had no problem with Obama bombing 7 countries with his corrupt administration. After all, that had no impact on the environment. Forget about the 400,000 people that he killed. The migratory birds are more important. Libs are really sick, deranged Pukes. 

jeff montanye's picture

you make a good point, if underestimating the dead and the countries attacked, imo.

Disregard for environment? corrupt administration? nice attempt at humour. 

 

Another ad hominem attack. To distract from what Trump is trying to do, to expose, to stop and to kick out.

It seems like it was a racist act, more then defiance against Trump? Tiger is blackened after all. So next up should be an act against obongo?

Hey, how's old Cankles doing?  She doing the home dryout still?  Good for her.  So tough on the elderly.  Naturally one turns to food, but fellow loser Michael Dukakis can help her with "Power Walking".  Maybe a cable access show.  Podcast.

Hey, did you see the story of the lefty theater that did a play about the Trump/Cackles debate?  Only they switched genders ( of course).  Cankles became the man.  Trump the woman. Anyways, the academic lefty audience loved Trump !  ( I guess a lot were really self shocked at how much they hated Hillery. )

They should be easy to catch. Their arrest and conviction will make them unemployable lol. Progressives demonstrate how evil they are every day.

Not necessarily. If it's in Kornifornia, the police will call them in have a cup of coffee with them and let them out to vandlaize again or go beat some innocent person up. Probably not even file a report or record on the criminals.

It's the way the left does things---similar to Obama calling thugs to the wh for a beer and a friendly chat.

My guess is we will see many more communities being built with gates and personal guards in areas where the police fail to enforce the law and judges condone crime and violence. We'll see more "self-help" methods of protecting oneself also.
