Someone Blew Up the "Georgia Guidestones"

I have very little understanding of what these are. They were erected in the distant past of 1980, possibly by The Druids. Hewn upon the living rock are kinda new-agey, New World Order One-World Government instructions for how to guide humanity into a new age of earthly perfection.

Police in Georgia are investigating an explosion Wednesday targeting the Georgia Guidestones monument, which the state says is known as "America's Stonehenge."

The early morning blast "destroyed a large portion of the structure" in northeastern Elbert County, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

"The preliminary information indicates that unknown individuals detonated an explosive device at around 4:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 6th," the agency said in a statement.

The Elbert County Sheriff's Office is among the law enforcement agencies investigating and a bomb squad has been called to the scene, according to Fox5 Atlanta.

"Known as America's Stonehenge, this 19-foot-high monument displays a 10-part message espousing the conservation of mankind and future generations in 12 languages," according to a description on the state of Georgia's tourism website.

...

The roadside attraction received renewed attention during Georgia's May 24 gubernatorial primary when third-place Republican candidate Kandiss Taylor claimed the guidestones are satanic and made demolishing them part of her platform.

"The Guidestones also serve as an astronomical calendar, and every day at noon the sun shines through a narrow hole in the structure and illuminates the day's date on an engraving," the tourism website also said.

Thanks to bonhomme.

The English part of the stones' message reads:

Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.

Under 500 million? Back in 1980, the world's population was 4.43 billion.

What was plan for getting rid of that surplus nearly-4-billion?

Guide reproduction wisely -- improving fitness and diversity.

Unite humanity with a living new language.

Rule passion -- faith -- tradition -- and all things with tempered reason.

Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.

Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.

Avoid petty laws and useless officials.

Balance personal rights with social duties.

Prize truth -- beauty -- love -- seeking harmony with the infinite.

Be not a cancer on the Earth -- Leave room for nature -- Leave room for nature.

This hissing extremist from the Daily Beast is jumping to conclusions:

Right-wing conspiracy theorists have been obsessed for years with a set of giant stone tablets called the Georgia Guidestones. On Wednesday, someone blew them up with a bomb.

Kandniss Taylor, the gubernatorial candidate calling for the stones' destruction, suggested God blew them up:

Kandiss Taylor
@KandissTaylor

God is God all by Himself. He can do ANYTHING He wants to do. That includes striking down Satanic Guidestones.

Even if some rightwing kook detonated the monument -- the stones were insured, right? I was told if something was insured it's okay to destroy it.

I was also told it was okay to destroy the monuments of people you are opposed to.

Was I not told that, repeatedly?

Have the rules changed now, for some convenient reason?

The left cannot be permitted to continue its highly selective denunciation of political violence.
