PLYMOUTH, Mass. (WCVB/CNN) - A symbol of America’s founding has been
targeted by vandals. Someone poured white paint on Plymouth Rock early
Friday.

Police are still searching for the suspect or suspects.

“It’s one of our treasures, but to the country, this is basically
where, you know, the beginning of the story, part of it anyway, and
it’s hurtful. And I don’t know if it was done as a prank, or it was a
hate thing,” said Dick Quintal, vice chair of the Plymouth Board of
Selectmen.

Plymouth Rock is a solid, steadfast reminder of the birth of the
nation, yet targeted and vandalized.

“I did see it. And it looked like a lead-based paint or an oil based,
I’d say. White paint, it was pretty well covered all over the ground,”
Quintal said. “It was splattered all over the rock. It seemed to be
about a gallon.”

Cut!

“It’s just such a shame that people are so angry at things that
happened in the past that they’re willing to destroy the present and
the future,” said Mati Conlin of Concord, N.H. “It’s aggravating.”

“We’re not going to tolerate it. I mean, if we can prosecute someone,
we will prosecute them to the full extent of the law,” Boteiri said.

The Left would like nothing more than to wipe out the history and
principles on which this country was founded -- most especially the
Constitution. Socialists can't stand opposition, whether spoken or
just thought.

People who deface and destroy old and unreplaceable historic things
like this, should be punished severely. It's a shame they did away
with public flogging. I bet watching about 50 lashes would have a
civilizing effect on many would-be criminals.

That would be a fitting punishment. Flogged in stocks at Plymouth Rock.
