(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) A mysterious granite monument in Georgia, described as “Satanic” by former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Kandiss Taylor, has been destroyed in an explosion, according to NBC News.
Surveillance footage released by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation shows a silver car leaving the scene as an explosion destroys the so-called Georgia Guidestones monument.

The monument, which is located in Elberton, Ga., was erected in 1980 by a certain Mr. Robert C. Christian, the leader of a shadowy pseudonymous group, in order to “leave a message for future generations,” according to the Elbert County Chamber of Commerce.
The message, translated into several languages, instructs future generations to limit the population of the world to 500 million and to “guide reproduction wisely, improving fitness and diversity.”
“Be not a cancer on earth — leave room for nature — leave room for nature,” the message concludes.
Taylor, who lost the Republican primary for Georgia governor in May 2022, praised its destruction in a Twitter post.
“God is God all by Himself. He can do ANYTHING He wants to do. That includes striking down Satanic Guidestones,” Taylor wrote.
“There is a war of good and evil going on, and people are done with globalism,” Greene said.
Katie McCarthy of the leftist Anti-Defamation League told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the bombing reflected the rise of domestic extremism in the United States.
“It’s definitely troubling, and it shows that these conspiracy theories that spread and percolate online have real world consequences,” McCarthy said.
Elberton Mayor Daniel Graves avoided the monument’s message in praising the craftsmanship that went into producing it.
“It is the stones themselves and the men and women who crafted them from the raw earth that tell the story,” he told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
“There is only one community in the world that could build such a monument.”
