Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s Yacht Vandalized

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s Yacht Vandalized

Yacht set adrift overnight, causing it to crash into a dock

Over the weekend, Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos’s yacht was vandalized while moored at a Huron dock in Huron, Ohio.

Someone untied the yacht, setting it adrift overnight. The captain and crew were able to regain control, but not before crashing into a dock.

Local news, The Toledo Blade reports:

A boat owned by the family of U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos was vandalized over the weekend while moored at a Huron dock, according to the Huron Police Department.

The Seaquest was moored at the Huron Boat Basin, 330 Main St., according to a police report. The captain of the 163-foot yacht, worth a reported $40 million, called police at about 6 a.m. Sunday, telling them that he and the crew realized at sunrise that someone had untied Seaquest from the dock, setting it adrift.

The crew eventually got control of the yacht, but not before it struck the dock, causing an estimated $5,000 to $10,000 in damage from large scratches and scrapes, according to the police report.

Officers were searching for surveillance video that may show who untied the yacht.

Most reports, including the one cited above, ramble and border on complaining about DeVos’s wealth.

DeVos travels with beefed up security. US Marshalls conducted a threat assessment and advised increased security, thanks to the inordinate amount of vitriol aimed at the Education Secretary.

As Mike blogged last year, before the uptick in violent and aggravated acts towards Trump’s administration, “The unhinged left is not interested in a debate about policy. They are trying to end this administration and they’re using increasingly dangerous methods to achieve their goal.”

If someone made a profit doing it would it still be vandalism?

May I recommend camouflage? Rename the boat “Feminist Progressive” or “The Resister”.

That’s some bassboat!

As the left descends into guerrilla warfare to combat Trump, events may occur that are unforeseen by those pseudo-intellectuals.

    Did the whole left do it?

    At least it was only a couple of pseudo-intellectuals. I would worry if real intellectuals were involved.

    Meanwhile the anti-intellectuals are running the asylum.

      The whole left, especially the quasi-intellectual left, is responsible for the atmosphere in which any deranged individual might think that they were serving “the cause” by doing stupid and dangerous things like setting a yacht loose.

        Trump is responsible for the atmosphere. He is a grifter, birthist, h8tr, Putin collaborator and racist. You are correct that it might set off an unhinged person.

        Then again in might be a couple of bored teenagers. It wouldn’t be the first time.

          I see you have DJT confused with Hillary Clinton.

          For example, the HRC campaign originated the birther claims against Obama.

          @Valerie It really doesn’t matter who originated the bogus claim. I doubt Trump has done anything original in his life.

          Trump ran with the claim which makes him a fool or a liar. Probably both.

          Even his ‘pro-life’ stance is bogus. It was just politically advantageous. He is an opportunist and grifter. You are a mark.

          It matters only to expose your stupidity and dishonesty.

          Forget the rest. Tell us in what sense he is either a “h8er” or a racist, and in which of Putin’s infamous crimes you think he collaborated.

      since no perps were identified in the news reports how do you know that it was “only a couple” and that they are “pseudo-intellectuals”.

      Also, have you noticed that the asylum run by “anti-intellectuals” just posed quarterly GDP of 4.1%?

And some people still think we live in a civilized society.

Another act of tolerance from those who oppose the racist hate-monger Trump … likely inspired by the Love and Flowers speeches of Uber-Tolerant Mad Max(ine) Waters!

The evolution of assassination, cross burning, occupation, and vandalism.

That’s a very large craft. What if that unlit, adrift boat had been rammed because nobody could see it at night and people got seriously hurt or killed?

I predict that by the end of the year some self-styled Resistance Freedom Fighters will attempt to kidnap an Administration official to take them to be tried by a “People’s Court”.
