    Recently, the Supreme Court ruled that the Veterans Memorial in the Mojave Desert could remain - the land on which the cross stood was private property.

    Vandals have trespassed and removed the cross. Yet another display of the Left's "respect" for religious freedom.

    he 7-foot-tall metal cross that has stood in California's Mojave Desert for 75 years and withstood a hard-fought battle in the Supreme Court was ripped down and stolen Sunday night, according to park officials.

    "This is an outrage, akin to desecrating people's graves," said Kelly Shackelford, president of the Liberty Institute, which represents the caretakers of the Mojave Desert War Memorial. "It's a disgraceful attack on the selfless sacrifice of our veterans. We will not rest until this memorial is re-installed."

    The National Park Service says someone cut the metal bolts holding the metal-pipe cross to the top of Sunrise Rock and made off with it Sunday night or before dawn on Monday.

    Veterans groups are outraged at the theft of the memorial symbol that was erected in 1934 by the Veterans of Foreign Wars to honor World War I dead....

    I guess if Dr. Gregg insists it was not stolen.... then I guess there is only global warming to blame

    Right, claiming its "leftwing".
    As opposed to right wing racism, gay bashing, lynchings, wife beating, etc

    The suit to remove the cross was supported by the ACLU. It's quite clear that the attacks on the cross are leftwing.

    You know with 100% certainty what the thieves politics are?

    Be careful. This could be another incident like the one recently when the Arbeit macht frei sign was stolen from Auschwitz and people were up in arms claiming Hitler had risen from the dead. Then it turned out to be just a bunch of apolitical scroungers looking to make some cash off a WWII collector.

    I'll retract my statement if the perpetrators are discovered and found not to have a leftwing agenda. The agenda of the ACLU is well known - and they were the main organization supporting the court case.

    Until then, the likelihood that they are lefties is about the same as Shahzad having ties to Islamic extremists.
