Former Congressional Candidate And Minister Arrested For Plotting To Attack Muslim Community In New York, But Let Out On Bail

Robert Rankin Doggart ran for congress last year.

For years, far-right media outlets, including Fox News, have warned of so-called “no go zones” where Muslims have taken over Western cities and enacted their own form of religious law. One of these mythical zones has been identified as Hancock, New York.

It is difficult to imagine that there is no impact of years of demonizing the Muslim community and spreading paranoia about sharia law. Therefore it's hardly surprising that someone was recently arrested actually plotting to attack Hancock.
