Supreme Court frustrates a central leftist strategy, affirms constitutionality of historic cross — and the folly of ‘tearing down monuments’

Yesterday’s 7-2 Supreme Court decision in American Legion et al. v. American Humanist Assn. et al. may prove to be a watershed in obstructing one of the Left’s core strategies: discrediting our collective history and eliminating the monuments to it so as to tear up constitutional limits on the power of government.

The American Left has turned away from making the political economy of America better for the less fortunate in society and embraces what Barack Obama euphemistically called “fundamental change,” meaning state control of the economy — putting politicians in charge.  This agenda requires discarding the constitutional limits on government — an ambitious goal, to be sure, but one that can be accomplished if the Founders and all who followed them and embraced those limits can be discredited in the eyes of a critical mass of the population.

For instance:

There’s plans in the works to cover a mural of George Washington from the halls of George Washington High School in San Francisco due to complaints that it’s offensive and demeaning to Native Americans and African Americans.

The San Francisco school board is expected to decide next week whether to cover the image or paint over it, but there’s no plans among top officials to leave the imagery in the open for students to view, according to several Bay Area news reports.
