With the exception of The Wichita Eagle, most of the media ignored the guilty verdict handed down on Wednesday against three Kansas men. Gavin Wright, Curtis Allen, and Patrick Stein were convicted of plotting a massive terrorist attack against an immigrant community center in Garden City, Kansas.
The community center is owned by Somalian immigrants and has a residential complex, a mosque, and some small businesses. According to an FBI spokesman, the trio plotted to use a series of four truck-bombs and the explosives they had manufactured would have leveled the block. The Kansas City Star reported in March that the three belonged to a group of yahoos calling itself the 'Kansas Security Force' and fancied themselves leaders of a new Crusade.
"The Department of Justice is resolute every day in fighting terrorist threats both foreign and domestic," Jeff Sessions said, "The defendants in this case acted with clear premeditation in an attempt to kill people based on their religion and national origin. That's not simply illegal; it's immoral and unacceptable and we aren't going to stand for it. Today's verdict is a significant victory against domestic terrorism and hate crimes."
Now wait a moment, here. Doesn't the Whacko Left and their parrots in the MSM tell us constantly that the Trump Administration is full of White Supremacists and Anti-Moslem bigots? Maybe the reason that the story got so little coverage is that it didn't fit 'the narrative.'
But leaving all these idiots aside, the real hero of this story was a Kansas man named Dan Day. Day not only reported his suspicions to the FBI---which led to the investigation---he risked his own life by voluntarily acting as an FBI informant and then openly testifying of his role at the trial. That took some incredible courage; as he was up a gang of fanatics who had no scruple against committing murder. Sessions personally cited Day for his bravery and credited him for "thwarting the attack and saving hundreds of lives."
Good men doing good things: our media ignores that too. Let's all be thankful though that a few men like Dan Day are out there making the world a better place.
