Robert Doggart won’t face terrorism charges for plotting to burn down a NY mosque

  • Robert Doggart, 65, was arrested for plotting to attack and burn down a mosque, school and cafeteria in a predominant Muslim community in upstate New York in April 2015.
  • On Tuesday, less than one year since his arrest, the New York Daily News reported that Doggart won’t face terrorism charges for his plot. 
  • Doggart faces “one count of solicitation to commit arson, one count of solicitation to commit a civil rights violation and two counts of threat in interstate commerce.”
  • Why won’t he face terrorism charges? The United States does not have a federal statute on domestic terrorism. 
  • According to Rafia Zakaria, a human rights attorney, federal statutes on terrorism are — ironically — designed in language to deliberately criminalize foreign suspects.
  • The U.S. federal law statute on terrorism almost entirely targets individuals with foreign ties or alliances. Read more (2/14/17 3:27 PM)

You want to talk about terrorist attacks in the U.S. by misogynistic groups? Okay.

Anti-abortion terrorists have as of 1977 committed the following:

11 murders

17 attempted murders

153 incidents of assault/battery

383 death threats

655 anthrax threats

619 bomb threats

41 bombings

3 kidnappings

173 arsons

91 attempted bombings/arsons

1264 incidents of vandalism

And this is just against clinics that provide abortion services. This also doesn’t include the daily intimidation campaigns against these clinics and anyone who even comes near them.

Terry McAuliffe, gave the most powerful and definitive condemnation of White Hate Groups in #Charlottesville.

Governor McAuliffe of Virginia is 100 times more POTUS than Trump!

Transcript (corrections welcome):

“I have a message for all the White Supremacists, and the Nazis who came into Charlottesville today. Our message is plain and simple: Go home. You are not wanted in this great commonwealth.”

“Shame on you. You pretend you are patriots, but you are anything but a patriot. You want to talk about patriots, talk about Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, who brought our country together. You want to think about the patriots today, think about the young men and women wearing the cloth of our country. Somewhere around the globe they’re putting their life in danger. They’re patriots. You are not.

You came here today to hurt people, and you did hurt people. But my message is clear. We are stronger than you. You have made our commonwealth stronger. You will not succeed. There is no place for you here. There is no place for you in America. We work here today to bring people together, to unify folks.”

I’ll remind you all that we are a nation of immigrants. Unless you’re Native American, the first ships that came to Jamestown, Virginia, in 1607, and since that time, many people have come to our great country to unite us. Our diversity, that mosaic tile of immigrants is what makes us so special and we will not let anybody come here and destroy it.”

“So please, GO HOME and NEVER COME BACK. Take your hatred and take your bigotry. There is no place. And if I could give you a piece of advice, use your time and energy to help people.

Come with me to help a veteran to find a job or a place to live. That’s what we need help on to bring people together.”

Wade Page was a white supremacist, mass murderer, and domestic terrorist. On the 5th of August 2012 Page entered a Sikh Temple and shot and killed 6 people, wounding a further 4. Page had strong ties to white-superamecist and neo-nazi groups, having formed a band called ‘End Apathy’ which featured prominently in the local white-power music scene. He had also previously been employed in the army, but was discharged following repeated issues with misconduct - including drunkenness and being absent without leave. 

The shop where he purchased the gun used in the shooting said that Page’s appearance and behaviour raised ‘no eyebrows’ and that nothing was flagged up on the background check. 

Page was shot by police in the stomach during the attack, however this was not what ultimately killed him. After being wounded Page put his gun to the head and pulled the trigger, completing suicide. There was outcry throughout the United States against this attack, and protests were held in India in response to the deaths. 

Twitter thread on neonazis marching on UVA campus:

Imagine if these people ever faced actual oppression. 

Nobody is trying to legislate away their right to marry. Nobody is trying to make them buy insurance to pay for ‘male health care.’

The law never Enslaved their great-grandparents Robbed their grandparents Imprisoned their parents Shot them when unarmed

There is no massive effort at the state and local level to disenfranchise them of the vote.

There is no history of centuries of bad science devoted to 'proving’ their intellectual inferiority.

There is no travel ban on them because of their religion. There is no danger for them when they carry dangerous weaponry publicly.

Their churches were never burned. Their lawns never decorated with burning crosses Their ancestors never hung from trees

Their mothers aren’t being torn away by ICE troopers and sent away forever. They won’t be forced to leave the only country they ever knew.

The president has not set up a hotline to report crime committed at their hands.

They are chanting 'we will not be replaced.’ Replaced as … what? I’ll tell you.

Replaced as the only voice in public discussions. Replaced as the only bodies in the public arena. Replaced as the only life that matters.

THIS is 'white people’ oppression: We used to be the only voice. Now we hold the only microphone.

THIS is 'white man’ oppression. We face criticism now. We were free from it, because others feared the consequences.

THIS is 'oppression’ of white Christians in this country. Christmas used to be the only holiday acknowledged, now it’s not.

[top photo repeated]

I would so love to see these people get all the oppression they insist they receive, just for a year. Just to see.

Give them a world where you ACTUALLY can’t say Christmas. A world where the name “Geoff” on a resume puts it in the trash.

Give them a world where they suddenly get a 20% pay cut, and then 70 women every day tell them to smile more.

Give them a world where their polo shirt makes people nervous, so they’re kicked off the flight from Pittsburgh to Indianapolis.

Give them a world where they inherited nothing but a very real understanding of what oppression really fucking is.

Give them a world where if they pulled up on a campus with torches lit and started throwing hands, the cops would punch their eyes out.

Put THAT in your Tiki torches and light it, you sorry Nazi bitches. Good morning, by the way, how is everybody.

I know nothing about the state of New Jersey, but bless them for this.
