I have had many reactions to my writing about inclusion. I have been told that only Muslims are terrorists and that we can’t come up with any proof that Christians are terrorists. Well, they are out there, but no one wants you to know about them. Especially Fox News.
There is a small town outside of Hancock, NY known as Islamberg. It is gathering of American Muslims, mostly black who left other areas of New York because of prejudice against them. What they did not expect was to be the target of an horrendous attack by so-called “Christians.”
Robert Doggart, 63 is a man who lives in Tennessee. As a matter of fact, he ran a failed campaign for Congress on far right-wing ideology. I guess he decided that a town called Islamberg was a threat to his way of life. He was captured on a wiretapped phone planning to go with his friends to Islamberg to burn down the mosque, school and cafeteria. He also said they planned to shoot anyone from the community who planned to stop them.
“Our small group will soon be faced with the fight of our lives. We will offer those lives as collateral to prove our commitment to our God,” Doggart said in a Facebook post, according to court documents. “We shall be Warriors who will inflict horrible numbers of casualties upon the enemies of our Nation and World Peace.”
Doggart was arrested April 10 by the FBI on charges that he solicited others to violate civil rights, attempted to damage religious property because of the religious character of the property and made threats through interstate communication. He pleaded guilty to the charge of interstate communication of threats. A judge is still to accept the plea agreement and pronounce a sentence.
Do you notice anything funny here? He was charged with soliciting other to violate civil rights, attempt to damage religious property and made threats through interstate communication. Where are the charges for soliciting others to commit an act of terrorism?
Another funny thing here. This story was never given a press release. That is why you probably have never heard about it. None of the major news outlets have had a single word about this case on the evening news. Fox News who is convinced that terrorism will signal the death of us all, has said not one word about it either.
Why hasn’t Sean Hannity or Bill O’Reilly screamed at the top to their lungs about this terrorist plot to kill Americans? Where is their outrage that the government isn’t charging these people with terrorism? You won’t hear them say a single word because these “terrorists” are white Christians.
Of course others at Fox have called Islamberg a “terrorist training camp.” No one who lives anywhere near the place believes that stupidity. The town is actually peaceful. But, anything called Islamberg MUST be a terrorist training camp.
“It’s kind of perplexing to us,” local Police Chief Craig Dumont said on New York’s AM 970. “All this recent media attention in regard to potential terrorist training camps and things that are going on there. We don’t see it. We just don’t find any of that to be valid at this time. … There are no active threats that we are aware of at this time.”
Do you really believe that if a Muslim did this kind of action the media wouldn’t be screaming about it being a terrorist act? Of course it would, and Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity would be screaming the loudest. Here is a case of a white so-called Christian planning to take a militia group with a cache of arms to a small town to commit a terrorist act, and no one seems to know about it. Fascinating!
“Doggart is an example of the results of unchecked and rampant Islamophobia which has spread lies for years about our peaceful community,” the organization’s public relations director, Mathew Gardner, said in a statement. “This man plotted to mercilessly kill us, kill our children, and blow up our mosque and our school. We have sound reason to believe he has already visited our other locations around the U.S. What other murderous plans do he and his private militia have and where are his accomplices?”
“All would agree, if a Muslim did this, the perpetrator would be immediately identified as a terrorist then prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The examples are numerous,” Gardner said. “Therefore, we call on all branches of justice to see to it that this man is prosecuted for planning a heinous hate crime and terrorist act.”
That is still the unanswered question. Where are his accomplices? Why haven’t they been charged yet with any crimes. To date, only Doggart has been charged. He wasn’t planning on going alone.
This case brings up another point. Why is it that no press statement or release was given over this incident? Why has it been kept so secret by the Judicial System. I am happy the FBI was able to head off this terrorist attack, but why did they keep it all so quiet?
Yes, Christian Terrorists are alive and well in the U.S. The problem is we can’t see them because when they are busted, law enforcement won’t tell us what happened. They won’t let it out that another Christian terrorist has been caught planning to kill American Citizens simply because they are Muslim.
Tell me again how the only terrorists are followers of Islam.
