Robert Doggart, a failed right-wing candidate for Congress from Tennessee, admitted in court to planning an attack on a New York Muslim community.

Robert Doggart, 63, was recorded on a wiretapped phone talking about his plan to travel along with members of a private militia to an area near Hancock, New York, known as Islamberg, to burn down a mosque, school and cafeteria, while gunning down anyone from the community who tried 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.

Two weeks later, Doggart pleaded guilty to interstate communication of threats. A judge has not yet signed off on the plea agreement. He was released on bond to home confinement after the agreement was made and faces between 0 and 5 years in federal prison, along with a possible fine of up to $250,000.

    “He was released on bond to home confinement” Are you fucking kidding me?

      What odds would you give on the chances of a Muslim being released if he did the same thing?

        I’m sorry, did you say shot on sight?

          You’ve got the idea.

      AND “facing 0 – 5 years”…only here is this possible.

      • Carla Akins May 16th, 2015 at 4:56 pm

        Because he got caught before he could complete what amounts to a domestic terrorist attack? Insane.

        • whatthe46 May 16th, 2015 at 5:43 pm

          and because he got caught first is exactly why he should be in there for life.

          White “Christian” terrorists get preferential treatment in order to appease right-wing conservatives.

          I hope they put him in a jail cell with a hardened Muslim terrorist. Maybe with Dzhokar Tsarnaev. Or maybe in Guantanamo.

            We can wish, but I’d bet you money on a medium security prison within a two drive from his family. Six months tops.

    So let me get this straight, you will kill innocents in the name God and Peace?

    My, you ARE a Repuke aren’t you!

    • Larry Schmitt May 16th, 2015 at 11:44 am

      It’s the history of religion. All religions.

      • alpacadaddy May 16th, 2015 at 11:51 am

        Roger that!

        And yet as we search for intelligent life on other planets, I still wonder if it exists on this one!

    Sometimes words fail.

    “We will offer those lives as collateral to prove our commitment to our God,”-Doggart said he worships a xenophobic homicidal Thug!

    Thank heaven for reports like this and also the Southern Poverty Law Center for calling out these domestic terrorists.

    The MSM rarely calls out these loons.

    The fix is in

    “…We will offer those lives as collateral to prove our commitment to our God…”
    Yeah well, killing in the name of one’s imaginary deity sorta went out with the crusades. Maybe you should move into the 21st century. After all, tolerance and intelligent thinking is the new black.
