Last week, Americans everywhere were shocked when a Muslim extremist barged onto a Chattanooga military base and killed four U.S. Marines.
Just days before the shooting, Muslims staged a demonstration in Chattanooga to defend Islam as a “religion of peace,” and to denounce a man they are calling, “the American Taliban.”
Robert Doggart, 63, has become the target of Muslim protesters since being released from federal prison into home detention in Signal Mountain, Tennessee, which is a suburb of Chattanooga. According to Conservative Tribune, Doggart plead guilty in April to planning an attack on Islamberg, New York.
Islamberg is a small town in Delaware County that is mostly populated by Muslims. It was founded in the 1980s by a Sufi cleric. Doggart’s original plea was thrown out by a judge, and he was charged last week with soliciting another person to carry out the violent attack.
If Doggart did indeed plan this crime, he deserves to be in jail. However, it’s sickening that Muslims are choosing to protest this crime instead of protesting against the terrorist attack that just happened in Chattanooga. They should be focusing their energy on getting justice for Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Sullivan of Springfield, Mass.; Lance Cpl. Skip ‘Squire’ Wells, of Marietta, Ga.; Sgt. Carson Holmquist, of Grantsburg, Wisc.; Staff Sgt. David Wyatt, of Chattanooga, and Navy Petty Officer Randall Smith, instead of going after someone for a crime that never actually happened.
