I Support The Man Who Ruined Trump's Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

A man took a pickax to the star, then turned himself into the police.

I Support The Man Who Ruined Trump's Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Early in the morning, at about 3:30 AM on Wednesday, August 25 Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was destroyed. When I say destroyed, it is gone. I support the man who did this.

No one is saying what he did was legal; we all know it's illegal to vandalize others' property. He even knew this and turned himself into the police. Sometimes, though, illegal is exactly what you need. In every movement for the rights of any minority group in this country, there have been illegal actions. Sometimes you need illegal actions to get the message out.

Was this man fighting for rights? Possibly, but we don't know anything about him. We don't even know his name. More than likely, though, he wanted to make a political statement that we all feel and understand. Recently Trump announced that he will be spending 12 Billion dollars bailing out farmers who can't sell soybeans due to the tariffs he's imposed.

I, personally, think it's stupid that he caused this and now is looking like the hero for bailing them out. But also, I thought that using taxpayer money to help others was socialism? Isn't that exactly what Trump and his followers DON'T want? Why is it okay to use taxpayer money to bail out farmers, but not help me pay for my insulin or for a child to have a surgery to survive?

Personally, I see the destroying of the star as a fight against hypocrisy and lies. Trump stands for both of these things, along with the people who aren't actively trying to stop it. You may not support him, but if you're not doing anything to try to stop him or call attention to all the wrongs he and his followers are committing, you're also apart of the problem. Silence lets these things continue.

Other things have happened to Trump's star in the past. It was destroyed in 2016, spray painted with a swastika and a mute symbol, and have a miniature wall built around it, to name a few things. I hope people continue to do these things and stand up for what they and many others believe in because some of us don't live close enough to do anything like this.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.
