Leftist vandals did not satisfy their bloodlust with the removal of Confederate statues; they’ve now begun their assault on religious figures that trigger their social justice warrior sensitivities. Last month, they attacked a statue of recently-canonized St. Junipero Serra with red paint and a swastika; this month they have beheaded the beloved saint.
According to SFGate, “a bronze statue of the Roman Catholic priest Junipero Serra at the Old Santa Barbara Mission was decapitated and doused with red paint on Sunday night or early Monday morning.”
Monica Orozco, executive director of the Santa Barbara Mission, has not decided if they will replace the statue.
“We will let people know once we know more information,” Orozco said. “We reported it to SBPD this morning. It likely happened during the night or early in the morning.”
Known for its beautiful Spanish architecture, the Santa Barbara Mission has been called the “Queen of the Missions,” though social justice warriors would firmly disagree, viewing the missions themselves as reminders of “racist colonialism,” with St. Junipero Serra as their primary target of hate.
