I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that a mentor has idolized the scene. There is nothing that suggests that the lego was built as a shrine. In fact, the presence of Bush's picture suggests a left spin on the matter rather then a right spin on it. The right has typically tried to present the spin that only the lowest ranking people at AG were responsible, whereas the left has typically tried to spin the scope of responsibility as high as possible in the food chain.
Children often act things out in order to understand them. Thats whats going on here, likely.
