An ISIS supporter has been sentenced to 28 years behind bars for plotting to behead conservative writer Pamela Geller over her Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas in 2015.
Wright and two other men had conspired to murder Geller after the cartoon contest where two men had shot and wounded a security guard and were both subsequently killed in a shootout with police.
Judge William G. Young told the terrorist, David Wright, 28, that he did not believe that he is a monster.
“You are not a monster, yet you embraced a monstrous evil,” Young told the tearful terrorist.
Wright had told the court that he was not an ISIS supporter, but simply pretended to in order to get attention online. He also apologized to Geller, his family, and the police.
“Nothing I can say can fix the hurt I caused,” Wright said during the sentencing hearing. “I sincerely hope that I can be given the opportunity to help others avoid the mistakes I made.”
The prosecution had been seeking a life sentence while the defense requested a 16-year sentence — claiming that he never actually intended to hurt anyone.
“I said a lot of fantastical things about what I intended, where I wanted to go and where I wanted to travel, and it was never real,” Wright said during his testimony in October. “It was fantasy.”
Fox News reports that Geller had urged the judge to sentence Wright to life in prison and said it was “impossible to overstate the devastation” he brought to her life, and said “there is no assurance that anyone can give me that he would not resume his quest to kill me and my relatives.”
While Wright was believed to have been the ringleader of the assassination plot, he had also recruited his uncle who received instructions on how to do so from Junaid Hussain, an ISIS terrorist and hacker who has since been killed in an airstrike in Syria.
The third person involved in the sinister plot was Nicholas Rovinski who pleaded guilty to conspiracy in 2016. He is currently facing 15-22 years in prison. During Wright’s trial, he told jurors that Geller “deserved to be beheaded” for insulting Muhammad.

ANTIFA-Linked Washington Women, Former Democrat Organizer Charged With Terrorist Attack in Train Derailment Plot
Two women are charged with attacks on railroad infrastructure.
Two ANTIFA-linked Bellingham, Washington women were federally charged on counts of terrorist attack and violence against a railroad carrier on Monday, with the Department of Justice alleging Ellen Reiche and Samantha Brooks placed a “shunt” on railroad tracks in Whatcom County.
The shunt device in question disrupts the low level electrical current on the tracks and can disable various safety features. Charging documents indicate that previous shunting incidents had caused dangerous situations for traveling trains and almost resulted in a spill of hazardous materials at least once.
Reiche(pictured), 23, and Brooks, 27, were arrested on Saturday night. In a charging press release, US Attorney Brian Moran reveals that authorities have discovered 41 incidences in which dangerous shunts were placed on railroad tracks belonging to BNSF Railroads since January.
According to reports on her now-deleted Linkedin page, Reiche was previously employed as a Deputy Field Organizer for Washington State Democrats. She appears to be something of an environmentalist type, working as a park aide for the state, a naturalist for Outer Island Excursions, and a mentor for Wild Whatcom. Reiche also has a bachelor’s degree in German from the University of Western Washington.
Photography of Reiche’s vehicle released in the Department of Justice charging document reveals an “Indigenous Land” bumper sticker, suggesting the territorial United States was stolen from Native Americans.
Charging documents reveal that claims of responsibility for the shunt placements were posted onto anarchist website itsgoingdown.org, a platform used by ANTIFA militants to plan property destruction, violent crimes, and attacks on traditional American statues. The post regarding the placement of the shunt invoked supposed solidarity with Native American groups who oppose the construction of a Canadian oil pipeline.
“This claim of responsibility stated that the shunting activity was carried out in solidarity with Native American tribes in Canada seeking to prevent the construction of an oil pipeline across British Columbia, and with the express goal of disrupting BNSF operations and supplies for the pipeline,” cites the charging documents.
A railroad safety deputy chief describes witnessing the two women placing the shunt device on railroad tracks by use of a game camera on November 28th. Whatcom County Sheriff’s Deputies were alerted, and when the two women were found at the scene, they claimed they were merely looking for lost keys. However, authorities determined Reiche was in “possession of a brown paper bag that contained rubber gloves, a piece of black insulated copper wire, and a Makita Drill with a wheel-shaped wire brush attachment in the chuck.” The same wire had been used in previous shunting devices. A shunt was ultimately discovered near where the two women were confronted by sheriff’s deputies.
The terrorist suspects were released from jail in advance of a scheduled December 14th court appearance. The criminal charges are punishable by sentences of up to 20 years in prison. Their booking information at the Whatcom County Jail specifies state charges filed against the leftist militants.
Both of them are identified as Bellingham, Washington residents in the DOJ press release.
