The left doesn’t care about the U.S. Constitution.
So with Trump’s Supreme Court nominees finally respecting it, they keep getting bad news.
And the Supreme Court just dropped one ruling that infuriates the left.
If there’s one thing the left hates more than anything, it’s American history.
Since its inception, the United States has been the foremost country pushing forward the ideas of freedom and liberty, and unity as one nation.
The left opposes everything about those ideas and wants to push forward radical far-left positions that restrict the rights of citizens in its place.
So tearing down symbols of American greatness is on the forefront of their crusade.
And one statue that is in their crosshairs is the World War I memorial in Maryland.
The 40-foot cross that honors Americans who died in the First World War has been in the crosshairs of the left for some time, with a court ruling that it violates the First Amendment for being a religious statue on government land.
But before it could come down the Supreme Court just overruled them, stating that the statue can remain in place.
The 7-2 ruling ensures that the statue will remain standing, much to the ire of the radical left.
In an unsurprising move, the only two dissenters are Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor.
The official opinion of the Court, delivered by Justice Samuel Alito makes certain that the statue is historic, and therefore can remain.
“After the First World War, the picture of row after row of plain white crosses marking the overseas graves of soldiers who had lost their lives in that horrible conflict was emblazoned on the minds of Americans at home, and the adoption of the cross as the Bladensburg memorial must be viewed in that historical context,” Alito wrote.
Alito also states that the statue has become a landmark in the community, and its removal would be seen correctly as “hostility toward religion.”
The religion aspect is the main reason this is the statue the left chose to target.
While opposition to American history is a driving factor for the left, there is a sizable group of those simply opposed to any public practice of Christianity.
That is why they are also targeting schools to prevent children from praying.
So the statue intersects with two major fights from the left.
That makes this Supreme Court ruling particularly damaging to them.
While this is one loss for them, there are countless other examples of the left winning on the front of statue removal.
In cities across the country statues to Confederate leaders and soldiers are being taken down.
These are statues initially put into place as a way to reunite America in the wake of the Civil War.
With a divided country, these statues are a way to honor the fight that resulted in the loss of many Americans in a dark part of American history.
