Vandalism at Pro-Life Demonstration at Geo. Washington University

From the Washington Post (2/3/09):

Crosses used in an antiabortion demonstration at George Washington University were defaced last week, and the school's College Democrats organization has apologized for the vandalism.

The crosses had been stored in a locked office shared by College Republicans and College Democrats. The Democrats issued a statement saying one of their members had admitted responsibility and had been expelled from the group but did not name the alleged offender.

GWU's chapter of the Young America's Foundation, a conservative group, had planted 1,100 small white crosses on university grounds on the anniversary of the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.

Student Republicans later found drawings and writing in black ink on some of the crosses. One depicted a stick figure of a crucified Jesus. Another, hung upside down, had a condom stretched over it. One had the name of a College Democrats leader.

This story was first seen on, which also has a link to Pat Dollard's site showing photos of what was done.

I guess the Most Merciful, Lord High Barack Obama's call for respect did not get very far down Pennsylvania Avenue. But, what else is new with the radical left.

But more important, notice how little play this has gotten. If it was the reverse, there would be calls for sensitivity training, expulsion, restitution.

I had heard about it but even the minimal coverage that it got did not do any justice; it did not describe what was really done. This is outrageous but, hey, it's the enlightened, tolerant left.
