Go get real wax and grease remover and a few plastic razor blades and it takes the glue residue off so easy.

We have to do massive moldings at work all the time with stupid as he'll designed where the tape is resting on 3 pieces of tall plastic. Usually we use razors to clean up the moldings/emblems but with those we just put paper towels soaked in wax and grease and let it sit for a while and you can almost just peel it all clean off in one go.

I dunno if its the truck being new, or what, used a blow dryer and fishing line, some how it still took a little paint and one good scratch from the emblem moving while sawing with the fishing line... O well to my buddies body shop I go!

Or should I just take it to a detailing place and have them try to buff of whatever is salvageable? Truck is almost 2 months old and no scratches other then this and I'm beyond irritated
As a full time detailer, I'm sorry to say there is very little that can be done for that other than getting it repainted. You can't buff whats not there. If you removed paint, you need to replace it. Either by touchup paint (will look a little sloppy no matter how nice you do it) or a body shop

What have you done OTHER than pulling the badge off?

That damage is not from pulling the badge off, at least not all of it. Pulling the badge off won't cause a big circular area of damage...
