This is getting crazy, folks.
While the entire country is consumed with distractions like the NFL kneeling and Hollywood rape stories, a Massachusetts man was planning to behead conservative news writer and blogger Pamela Geller as a favor for the Islamic State.
David Wright was found guilty of all charges he faced, which included conspiring to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, as well as conspiracy to commit acts of terrorism transcending national boundaries.
This is homegrown stuff, folks. This is happening right here, right under our noses as we wait for which Hollywood celebrity is going to post a #MeToo on social media.
We need to spread the word so people can wake up.
According to the New York Daily News:
A Massachusetts man was convicted Wednesday of plotting to behead conservative blogger Pamela Geller and kill other Americans on behalf of the Islamic State group.
Jurors found David Wright guilty of all charges, including conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and conspiracy to commit acts of terrorism transcending national boundaries.
The 28-year-old faces up to life in prison.
Prosecutors said Wright, his uncle and a third man conspired to kill Geller because they were upset she organized Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas in 2015. During the contest, two other men opened fire outside and wounded a security guard before they were killed in a shootout with law enforcement assigned to guard the event.
Wright’s uncle, Ussamah Rahim, told Wright on a recorded phone call later that month that he couldn’t wait to attack Geller and decided instead to go after “those boys in blue,” referring to police. Wright told his uncle that was “beautiful” and encouraged him to delete all the data from his computer before carrying out his attack.
Hours later, Rahim was shot and killed by authorities after he lunged at them with a knife when they approached him in Boston. The attack on Geller, who has spearheaded scores of events across the nation to decry Islamic extremism, was never carried out.
Wright cried on the stand when he spoke of his uncle, insisting that he didn’t think Rahim was serious about the attack. Wright, who was more than 500 pounds (227 kilograms) in 2015, testified that he used Islamic State group propaganda to get attention but was just playing a role and never wanted to commit violence.
As you all know, Pamela Geller is a conservative political commentator who speaks out regularly against radical Islam and the violent interpretations of the religion it follows.
So her freedom of speech must be silenced.
That is a dangerous ideology, and it is being promoted right here in America.
Enough is enough.
No wonder President Trump wants to stop the influx of un-vetted, unknown immigrants from war-torn nations until we can figure out what the hell is going on.
Share if you agree.
