Man Who Destroyed Trump’s Walk of Fame Star Learns His Fate

Seems he got off easy.

Published

A California man who decided to express his hatred for President Trump by taking a pickaxe to his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has decided to take a plea deal earlier this week.

Austin Clay, 24, appeared in Los Angeles County Superior Court and pleaded “no contest” to one felony count of vandalism causing more than $400 in damage. The deal he agreed to carries a sentence of one day in prison (which he apparently already served), 20 days community labor, and three years of probation.

But that’s not all. He’s also being required to pay $9,404.46 in restitution to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for damages and he must also attend “psychological counseling.”

According to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office, Clay could have faced a maximum three years in jail if convicted at trial. He is not the first to vandalize Trump’s star in Los Angeles. James Otis, 54, took a pickaxe and sledgehammer to the star in 2016, and was reportedly sentenced to three years probation. He was also ordered to pay “$3,700 to the Hollywood Historic Trust and $700 to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.”

The real issue here isn’t that Clay doesn’t support President Trump. This is America. We’re allowed to hold personal opinions about the leadership in charge of running the country. We’re also allowed, thanks to the Constitution, to express those opinions in a public forum without concern of being silenced by the federal government.

However, there’s a right way to express your thoughts and beliefs, and there’s a wrong way. Clay chose the wrong way. This sort of unhinged anger has become a defining characteristic of the modern liberal movement, which doesn’t do much for winning folks over to the cause.

We in America — and this includes Republicans — need to stop being so vicious toward each other. We need to seek to find common ground with one another, to remember that we’re all image bearers of God, and as such, we need to treat each other with respect and dignity, even if we passionately disagree with each other’s political and ideological positions.

There are many important matters to discuss in our country right now. However, if we don’t learn the art of civil debate and discourse, this nation won’t survive. Here’s to hoping we all find a way to discuss these matters in a civilized way.

WATCH: CNN Tries Getting 8 Women to Admit Trump Is Racist, But It Goes Horribly Wrong

Good going, guys. This should definitely help ratings!

If they’re trying to look silly then they’re killing it. CNN refuses to acknowledge any of the great work President Trump has done for the country simply because they don’t like him as a person. It’s abhorrent. Check out their latest attempt at getting Republicans to “admit” that 45 is a stone-cold racist… From Daily Wire: CNN’s Randi Kaye asked a group of Republican women if they thought President Donald Trump’s recent tweets attacking four far-left congresswomen were racist and all eight fired back with a resounding “no.” The segment, which aired on Tuesday night on “Anderson Cooper 360°,” featured a group of eight Trump supporters in Dallas, Texas. One supporter, Sharon Bolan, said, “I’m a brown-skinned woman. I am a legal immigrant. I agree with him.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/AC360/status/1151293969076109313?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1151293969076109313&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F49570%2Fcnn-tries-convince-gop-women-trump-racist-doesnt-ryan-saavedra According to freshman Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib (MI), all Congressional Democrats are racist. No joke. She actually said that, revealing what conservatives have known to be true for decades. Did Tlaib mean to say it, though? IT SURE LOOKS THAT WAY. Here’s how it all started… A woman sent a tweet arguing that Democrats are not doing enough to protect embattled Dem Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN)… The attacks on @IlhanMN and subsequent lack of support from Democratic leadership continues to prove that this system was never meant for us. Do not applaud diversity and the “first” Muslims in any space if you’re not willing to be a true ally and defend us.#IStandwithIlhan https://twitter.com/MsMaheenAhmed/status/1117084384614473729?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1117084384614473729&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F04%2F13%2Flook-out-nancy-pelosi-rep-rashida-tlaib-just-called-out-your-whole-party-as-racist%2F Enter Tlaib, who dropped the bomb… They put us in photos when they want to show our party is diverse. However, when we ask to be at the table, or speak up about issues that impact who we are, what we fight for & why we ran in the first place, we are ignored. To truly honor our…

PHOTOS: Chris Pratt Compared to White Supremacists For Wearing ‘Don’t Tread On Me’ Shirt

IS THIS REAL LIFE?

Being proud to be an American is almost a sin, nowadays. Liberals can’t stand anyone who loves their country. No more examples are needed. We’ve seen enough. Check out the reaction Christian actor Chris Pratt received for wearing a t-shirt that reads, “Don’t Tread On Me”… From Daily Wire: Vulture writer Hunter Harris posted the photo of Pratt in the shirt on Monday; Yahoo! picked up the “story” the next day, claiming the t-shirt featured a “controversial symbol” and showcasing online far-left critics. https://twitter.com/hunteryharris/status/1150866021147906055?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1150866021147906055&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F49563%2Fchris-pratt-criticized-wearing-white-supremacist-t-amanda-prestigiacomo Reactions: https://twitter.com/timbyrnes89/status/1151121049347485696?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1151121049347485696&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F49563%2Fchris-pratt-criticized-wearing-white-supremacist-t-amanda-prestigiacomo https://twitter.com/akclarke_/status/1151129033989611520?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1151129033989611520&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F49563%2Fchris-pratt-criticized-wearing-white-supremacist-t-amanda-prestigiacomo Pratt constantly talks about deep faith in Christ and his relationship with the Lord. He’s also an avid hunter and pro-American patriot who calls out faux liberal outrage when he sees it, just like the rest of us. If Pratt is liberal then President Trump is humble. Neither is true. He can’t admit it for obvious reasons, but Chris Pratt is certainly conservative (or at the absolute least, right-leaning). That reason alone is exactly why TV Guide believes Chris is “problematic” to viewers. No joke. From Daily Wire: One of the few Hollywood stars that conservatives feel actually sees the world from a similar point of view is “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt, who is willing to openly criticize aspects of liberal culture and proclaim his faith in God, while managing to never come off as self-righteous or self-serving. So, perhaps it’s no surprise that TV Guide would feel compelled to write a hit-piece on Pratt warning its readers about his “problematic life offscreen” that is sure to offend their (presumably left-wing) sensibilities, including that he once mocked “outrage culture.” https://twitter.com/TVGuide/status/1076160619831803904?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw The un-Christmas-spirited piece begins by describing Pratt’s transformation from likable TV personality to “Hollywood’s golden boy” with his roles in “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic World.” But by the…
