BOSTON: Man Sentenced To 28 Years In ISIS-Inspired Plot To Behead Right Wing Extremist Pam Geller

The Associated Press reports:

A man convicted of leading an Islamic State-inspired plot to behead a conservative blogger who upset Muslims when she organized a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest was sentenced Tuesday to 28 years in prison.

David Wright, who’s 28 years old, was sentenced by a judge in Boston’s federal courthouse two months after jurors found him guilty of conspiring with his uncle and a Rhode Island man to kill blogger Pamela Geller on behalf of the terror group.

Wright’s attorneys had asked for a 16-year sentence, saying he should be given the chance to redeem himself after serving his time. Wright insisted he never really wanted to hurt anyone but pretended to support the Islamic State group to get attention online.

    We don’t need anyone making her into a martyr, thanks anyway.

      yeah, part of me wants to say “better luck next time,” but really, I think letting her continue to make a fool of herself is better.

    • safari

      Wow.

    • Phil2u

      What the …. ?

    • safari
      • yeah, that’s not going to stand. not really complaining; we’d be agitating for the same thing if we’d seen one of our candidates lose by one vote.

        now, can we please have the very interesting coversation about the reality of American “voting?” tabulation, production of machines which record them, who owns what and how, which political party they favor… that’s the short list. this has been going on since 2000. is “anyone” serious and important ready to talk about this yet? this is going to be totally forgotten by the mainstream press, too, also. in about a new ohio minute.

        • gaycuckhubby

          It will almost certainly stand. This is the final recount. It was in front of a judge and now the results just need to be certified by three-judge panel. This was the final step in a month of recounting and legal battles.

          • hey, i’d love to believe that! but i don’t live there anymore and i still remember the Games that are played in that state. i don’t know what will be the final outcome and neither do you, is all i’ll say. VA is a fucked up place, politically. it can be fun if you’re in the Game, but also not so fun, if you have to deal with its reality on a daily basis and are not rich.

    I don’t wish violence on most people, herself included.

    It doesn’t mean I like her.

    • another_steve

      I try not to do that either. Try not to wish violence.

      In my comments here on JMG, when I’m really angry I wish upon the enemy multiple small hernias that keep reoccurring despite medical intervention.

      • gaycuckhubby

        I appreciate it. I’m sick of people wishing death on others. I’m also sick of people wanting prison time for political opponents who have no proof of crimes committed. ie Jill Stein. “Lock Her Up” is unamerican and unconstitutional no matter who shouting it.

        • MonochromeMouse

          The fact that Stein met with Putin at the exact same time as Mike Flynn is proof that Stein aided in the collusion to steal the election. That is a crime.

          • I don’t think it’s proof, but I think there’s sufficient smoke to warrant an investigation. And the House and Senate committees (and Mueller) May be privy to More that we don’t know about. They did, for example, demand that Don Jr. turn over any emails he had with Stein. We the public don’t know (yet) the results of that.

          • gaycuckhubby

            No proof at all. It’s hyperbolic guessing. Let the investigation continue, if there’s something there then I’m okay with jail time or fines / Banning of fundraising. But demanding jail time before a conviction is lunacy, unAmerican and something Trump does

          • MonochromeMouse

            Because nobodies get randomly seated with heads of state and their criminal accomplices all the time. It would have been one thing if Flynn wasn’t known to be involved or if Stein was simply at the same dinner, but the FACT is she was seated at the table with both Putin and Flynn. Stein committed a crime, she is guilty and deserves to be punished regardless of what the investigation or court decides.

        • vorpal

          Agree with this. I may occasionally joke about violence because my humour has few boundaries, but there is nobody I’d actually actively wish violence on.

          There are people I think the world would be much better without, but I still don’t want them to suffer pain.

          • 2guysnamedjoe

    • vorpal

      Does anyone even take her seriously anymore?
      She seems like she’s faded into irrelevance, like Eugene Delgaudio and Porno Pete.

      If I’m going to wish violence on people, I’m going to save it up for a more deserving target.

            I’m sure I’ve told the story of the ultrasound I had?

            End of it, dimly lit room, me with a “gown” hiked up and held at my neck while I was turned away from the tech who was brand new and dumped a TONNE of goop on me. At the end he stood up and actually flung a towel on my chest and said “here, you can clean yourself up”. Followed by a second and “here, take two, it’s a lot.”

            With NO recognition of the moment.

            I actually had handfuls of the shit to scrape off.

            I was thinking at the time of faux crying “but I’ll never get the SHAME off” but.. figured it’d just go over his head.

          • gaycuckhubby

            LOL @ ultrasound

      It means she’s voting “Yes” with or without her required provisions, but she needs you to go away now so she can vote once darkness falls.

    If they really want to punish him, sentence to live with Pam Geller for 28 years.

  • Taylor Bixler

    28 years? And the guy did not even act on anything? Something does not add up here based on the details I have read.

    • clay

      Her freedom of speech to say an entire religion is murderous is different than his freedom of speech in talking as if he actually is murderous.

    • Natty Enquirer

      Conspiracy requires that the defendant take some concrete step toward committing the crime. So yes, he acted on something.

      • Taylor Bixler

        All I see from his october conviction is a bunch of conspiracy charges because of some overheated statements he made. His uncle did some dumb ish and ended up dead, but it sure looks like this nitwit just flapped his gums a bunch.

        And the Cleveland “bridge bombing” plot from 2012 orchestrated by the FBI suggests to me conspiracy charges can be simply manufactured.

        • Natty Enquirer

          I doubt we have the whole story without reading the charging document.

    Moral of the story: If you want to get away with committing serious crimes then you commit ‘Conspiracy Against The United States’ or treason for rich white men. Literally, less than a month of house arrest and you’re set free with no blemish on your record.

    • gaycuckhubby

      You realize he hasn’t been cleared? They’re still going to be a trial. He’s still not allowed to leave the country, he still has to wear an ankle monitor, he still can only travel to work and back. His record is not clear at all.

  • alguien

    this is exactly the sort of stuff hate mongers & conspiracy theorists like gellar thrive on. she can use incidents like this to fire up her base and drive up the anti-muslim sentiment to a whole new level.

    these knuckleheads played right into her hands.

  • Halou

    If her head was removed the only downside would be that she wouldn’t be able to go on any of the “You must be this tall to enter” rides at the theme parks. Other than that nothing would be gained or lost, her level of intelligence wouldn’t change.

  • GanymedeRenard

    Thanks, dear terrorist, but the U.S. has its own brand of terrorism – very particularly among the white, straight, Christian males. The country doesn’t need you, dear terrorist, but thanks for playing.

    As for you, Ms. Geller, your head (brain and face included, of course) isn’t exactly the best representation of the human species, but some of us prefer you keep it so that your mouth and actions can fully reveal who the rest of the sane world’s enemies are and what can be done to prevent you lot from turning peace into chaos. Now get lost.

  • johncAtl

    I’m afraid to look at that picture of Geller. Reminds me too much of Medusa.

    Did the judge consider executing Wright and Geller both? Two dead terrorist instigators, win-win.

    Remember when Geller held a ‘Draw Muhammad’ Contest and two Muslim scumbags showed up with guns and promptly died when cops shot them?

    Good times.

  • TK

    While I don’t condone the plot to behead her, we’d all be better off without her – and a lot of others like her. I’m really struggling with the immense ill will I’m feeling towards so many people like her, Trump, the GOP, et al ad nauseum. It’s the worst I’ve ever felt towards our disgusting national politics and much of the global political scene as well. This latest “tax cut” piece of shit isn’t helping. The billionaire elite are taking over the planet and I don’t feel confident our faith in “democracy” is going to stop them.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    • Reality.Bites

      I’m just not sure it should count as a crime. More like removing a tumour.

  • Michael

    Beheading is such a quick death. I think the more just punishment would be to allow her to live the rest of her life wearing that face.

    Now let’s not be hasty. I’d like to re-think this.

    I feel more sympathy for that guy who responded to the German cannibal’s personal ad on the cannibalism site. He and Pam both knew, on some level, what they were getting themselves into, but Pam was meaner, making a point, no matter who got hurt. My recollection is that she cut and ran the minute the threat of violence turned to reality, so that it was actually mostly other people who were in danger.

  • sadoldguy

    Dueling extremist.

    That picture truly captures the essence of Pam Geller: an unhinged bat shit crazy bitch .

  • juanjo54

    I would not wish harm on anyone but if I were to read her obituary say, here on JMG, I would be quite happy to do so.

  • AJD

    His nefarious plot was foiled when he discovered that, in fact, Geller has no head.
