      Unlike its Utah sibling – which was firmly mounted in the rocks where it was found – the Atascadero monolith was apparently a little wobbly and the newspaper reported that it might be possible to push it over.

      The Utah monolith was first spotted on 18 November by state helicopter crews helping wildlife biologists count bighorn sheep. The object, about 11ft tall and apparently made of stainless steel, soon attracted hundreds of curious onlookers to its location as its fame spread around the globe.

      Its creator remains a mystery though a subject of much speculation. As does the identity of its destroyers after eyewitnesses captured its removal last Friday night by a group of four men who reportedly “walked off with the pieces” with one of them saying, “Leave no trace,” according to the New York Times.

      The Atascadero monolith is not the first copycat of the Utah original. Amid mounting international attention of the mystery, a similar structure was reportedly found in the mountains of Romania.

      “Christ is king in this country. We don’t want illegal aliens from Mexico or outer space,” a man in the video says. “So let’s tear this bitch down.”

      As the group of three struggle to topple the 200-pound statue, they can be heard chanting as they sway it back and forth. Eventually, the monolith’s base breaks and it falls to the ground.

      In a video posted to a DLive account run by someone with the username CultureWarCrimnal, the group of men claims to have driven for over 5 hours to get to the statue’s site, streaming most of the time. The man who appears in the later video is wearing military fatigues and camo face paint. He’s vaping while saying things like, “I will fuck you to death if you don’t sing.” The group goes on to sing “Battle Hymn of the Republic” and other military-centric songs, all while greeting his viewers with vulgar, racist commentary. Two other members in the back of the car have combat helmets on with night-vision goggles attached.

      Previous videos posted to CultureWarCriminal’s DLive account show the man talking on Omegle about “the pedophile rape tunnels under Hillary Clinton’s house,” claiming to be a member of the Marines, and commending spitting on Black people. His Twitter further perpetuates his racist narrative and indicates his affinity towards far-right podcast host Nick Fuentes.

      The large monolith was first discovered just above the tide line on Compton Beach on the south west of the island on Sunday.

      Alexia Fishwick said she “was dumbstruck” when she came across it. “Many people walked past it and ignored it – it’s incredibly graceful.”

      Similar objects have also been discovered recently in Utah , California and Romania.

      It is not known who installed the structure, which is described as about 7.5ft (2.2m) high by 2ft (0.6m) wide.
