'We don't want illegal aliens from Mexico or space': Group dressed in military fatigues and MAGA merch tear down California monolith after just one night chanting before replacing 10ft pillar with wooden cross

 A group of Trump-supporters chanting ‘Christ is King’ and ‘America first’ demolished a metal monolith in California overnight, just hours after the strange structure was first discovered – matching similar obelisks found in Utah and Romania last week.

In a video posted to the streaming website DLive, a group of four men dressed in a medley of military fatigues and Make America Great Again merchandise are seen pushing over the monument atop Pine Mountain in Atascadero late Wednesday night into early Thursday morning.

‘Christ is king in this country. We don’t want illegal aliens from Mexico or outer space,’ one of the culprits is heard saying in the video. ‘So let’s tear this b***h down.’

Other members of the group are heard using homophobic slurs to describe the construction of the 10ft tall stainless steel obelisk, calling it 'gay', before moving in to topple it.

As the group struggle to uproot the monolith, they can be heard chanting ‘Christ is King’ as the monument is seen swaying back and forth in the darkness.

Eventually the base of the statue breaks away and it falls to the ground with a hard thud.

The leader of the group, identified by his handle CultureWarCriminal, then raises a fist in the air towards the camera and declares ‘America First’.

In place of the monolith, the group erects a wooden cross, once again declaring ‘Christ is King.’

One member of the group is also heard referring to the monolith as, ‘gay bull****’.

The group then pose in front of the cross, which appears to be made from two pieces of plywood, while all stepping one boot on the downed monolith.

After the photoshoot concludes, the men then tie ropes around the structure and drag it with them down the mountain, calling it names and cheering.

‘It was a learning experience. Nobody got arrested … It was fine because it was funny,’ one of the group is heard saying.

The Atascadero monolith was discovered by a group of hikers atop Pine Mountain on Wednesday morning. It was the third metallic monolith to be discovered in the past week, with the fist unearthed in the desert of Utah and a second near an ancient town in Romania.

The California installation appeared to be made from stainless steel, welded together at each of its three corners and using rivets that are attached to the side panels. It stood at 10ft tall and was 18 inches wide, local reports said.

‘Christ is king in this country. We don’t want illegal aliens from Mexico or outer space,’ one of the culprits is heard saying in the video. ‘So let’s tear this b***h down.’

During their hours-long live stream, the group claimed to have driven for more than five hours to get to the statue’s site.

While streaming throughout most of the journey, the man dubbed CultureWarCriminal is seen wearing military fatigues. Two men in the back, meanwhile, are shown wearing combat helmets and night vision goggles.

The group are also heard greeting viewers of the feed with vulgar and racist commentary, while jeering motorists with homophobic slurs as they pass by them on the motorway.

‘You’re queer, you’re queer,’ one of the men is heard repeatedly saying at passing cars through laughter at one stage in the stream. ‘That’s California for you,’ interjects another.

In a later video, after toppling the statue, one man is heard telling his accomplices, ‘I will f*** you to death if you don’t sing’. The group then go on to recite a number of military-centric songs, such as ‘Battle Hymn of the Republic’.

The men also mention burning crosses and white power, Vice News reported.

While making their way down the mountain, the men claim to be being pursued by an unidentified group.

The men video themselves as they run into the bushes to hide and turn off their camera lights.

The person recording claims someone has sent canines on them, though no barking is heard in the clip.

Moments later, voices can be heard getting closer to the group, prompting one of the men to yell out, ‘grab the cross and beat them with it.’

While remaining crouched in the bushes, the group theorize that their apparent pursuers could be members of the Antifa movement.

‘Antifa isn’t one to underestimate,’ a member of the group is heard concluding.

They then devise a plan using military vernacular that involves calling the police and framing their pursuers as the ones responsible for destroying the monolith.

The men later return to their car and proceed to brag about their apparent escape during their ride home.

The Atascadero Police Department has not yet returned a DailyMail.com request for comment as to whether the group will face charges.

On his Twitter feed, the man dubbed Culture War Criminal has posted several times and the destruction of the monolith, writing in one tweet: ‘Cringe #Monolith in #Atascadero destroyed #PineMountain #F***ArtMajors’.

He followed that post up with the hashtag ‘#ChristIsKing’.

As of Thursday afternoon, the man’s D-Live account was inaccessible, with notice reading that the user was currently ‘offline’.

Vice News reported that previous posts to the channel showed him talking on Omegle about bizarre conspiracy theory regarding ‘pedophile rape tunnels under Hillary Clinton’s house’.

He also allegedly claimed to be a member of the Marines, and commended spitting on black people, the outlet reported.

Videos posted to his Twitter account show him demonstrating in Huntington Beach as part of a small Trump rally.

In one clip he is heard tormenting a woman who is criticizing the group, saying: ‘You may want to invest in a bigger shirt ma’am, your stomach’s hanging out. A prime example for why the gyms need to re-open.’

The Atascadero Police Department has not yet returned a DailyMail.com request for comment as to whether the group will face charges.

The names of the culprits are not currently known.  

The monolith found in Utah last Wednesday was also removed by activist overnight last week. 

Two of the culprits, tour guide Sylvan Christensen and extreme sports pro Andy Lewis, said they took it upon themselves to take down the installation because swaths of tourists flocking to snap selfies with it were destroying sacred land with tire marks and excrement.
