'Mojave Cross' Stolen; Was Subject Of Recent Supreme Court Case

Editor’s Note – Typical of the left, when they can’t advance their ideology by legal means, they’ll employ whatever tactic necessary, including theft. 

As Nancy Pelosi said, “We’ll go through the gate, if the gate is closed we’ll go over the fence, if the fence is too high we’ll pole vault in, if that doesn’t work we’ll parachute in…”

After all, the ends justifies the means…

“Vandals toppled and removed the 8-foot-high cross at Mojave National Preserve in California less than two weeks after the Supreme Court ruled the controversial memorial could remain on federal property,” Stars and Stripes reports.

According to the Associated Press, “the National Park Service says someone cut the bolts holding down the metal-pipe cross and made off with it late Sunday or early Monday.”

The Liberty Institute, a conservative advocacy group that has represented the memorial’s caretakers, has issued a statement calling the theft “an outrage, akin to desecrating people’s graves,” and offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

It was just two weeks ago that the Supreme Court ruled that lower courts went too far in ordering the dismantling of the cross, which was erected on public land to honor the soldiers who died in World War I.
