One suspects that since this news is not conservatives taking exception to the political prognostications of the Roman Catholic Pontiflex Maximus, it failed to move Rick’s outrage meter. Then again the proportion of Conservatives here in the formerly Golden State is a shadow of what it once was as the middle class has been voting with their feet for decades now.
Well, Obama did say “punish your enemies.”

When I was a kid growing up in southern California, there was probably no more revered figure than that of Father Junipero Serra, the founder of the famous mission trail and the priest who brought Christianity to the West Coast. Today, of course, he’s a figure of hate:
Days after Pope Francis elevated Father Junipero Serra to sainthood, vandals struck the Carmel Mission where the remains of the controversial missionary are buried, toppling statues and damaging gravesites. The vandals, who police say acted sometime Saturday night or early Sunday morning, splashed paint throughout the cemetery and basilica and scrawled “Saint of Genocide” on a headstone.
Carmel police Sgt. Luke Powell said the incident was being investigated as a hate crime because the vandals targeted “specifically the headstones of people of European descent, and not Native American descent.”
Yeah, well, good to know, sergeant. But calling this a “hate crime” misses the enormity of what’s happening in California and elsewhere, where a sickness — no, an evil — is stalking our country. It’s Critical Theory in action, the now-literal tearing-down of our country’s history.
But hey, there can be no real evil from the left in the eyes of the creatures of the left, right, Rick?
