Talk about a bizarre story. First, Fox News has this:

The 7-foot-tall metal cross in a 75-year-old war memorial that withstood the heat of the Mojave Desert and a blazing battle in the Supreme Court over its legality was ripped down and stolen Sunday night, according to federal officials.

Who would do something like this? Could it be ACLU communist-moonbats? Again, Fox:

Authorities had no immediate motive for the theft but National Park Service officials are considering a range of ideas from scrap metal scavengers to people "with an interest in the case," said Park Service spokeswoman Linda Slater.

The Liberty Institute is now offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction in the case, and the National Park Service has established a tip hotline seeking information leading to the recovery of the cross. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Park Service at (760) 252-6120.

  1. If not for the ACLU lawsuit, I wonder if the vandals would have even known the cross was there.

  4. They would have to travel how far into the desert to spend how much time taking it down? For what a $100 worth of scrap metal....I think pushing the scrap metal theft angle is even more insulting.

    It's as if the leftist press are saying, that's all this "WWI Memorial" amounts to it's worth - scrap metal.

    They need to put up a new memorial, a bigger more elaborate memorial...with a huge media event at the unveiling. The VFW should have a contest, have artist submit concepts for the new memorial. It seems like the perfect opportunity to add more crosses ;)
