Florida: Bernie Sanders supporters vandalize pristine beach with graffiti

On college campuses some students have become outraged over “Vote Trump 2016” graffiti written in chalk on benches, sidewalks and building stairs. According to the Emory Wheel:

Students protested yesterday at the Emory Administration Building following a series of overnight, apparent pro-Donald Trump for president chalkings throughout campus.

Roughly 40 students gathered shortly after 4:30 p.m. in the outdoors space between the Administration Building and Goodrich C. White Hall; many students carried signs featuring slogans such as “Stop Trump” or “Stop Hate” and an antiphonal chant addressed to University administration, led by College sophomore Jonathan Peraza, resounded “You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!” throughout the Quad.


Emory University President James G. Wagner scrawls in chalk, “Emory Stands for Free Expression!”

In the joint email sent on behalf of CC and SGA, representatives wrote that they “remain unapologetically dedicated to inclusion, diversity and equity.”

What would Emory University students say about painting Bernie Sanders graffiti on this pristine beach in Florida?

We came across an individual sharing photos on Facebook of a famous strip of beach on the north end of Longboat Key, Florida. What was unique about these photos was that there weren’t photos of the beautiful water, an incredible sunset, or the famous “Drifting Trees” that appear across this portion of the beach. Rather they were of graffiti, Bernie Sanders graffiti.

The photos (below) showcased the vandalism performed by supporters of Democratic Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders:

Instead of peacefully, respectfully and legally expressing support for their candidate, someone decided to illegally express their support of Democrat Bernie Sanders by defacing the “Drifting Trees” with paint.

This isn’t just horrific and disrespectful to the community, but it’s criminal and hopefully law enforcement will be able to locate the vandal(s).

The Republican Party of Sarasota County is tapping into their network of contacts in the hope of locating a professional environmentalist or conservationist who posses the expertise to safely remove this paint from these beautiful trees, which serve as a local destination.
