Pro-gay marriage terrorist Floyd Lee Corkins, who plotted to murder the employees of both the Family Research Council and Traditional Values Coalition Christian lobbying groups, has plead guilty:
A man accused of shooting a security guard inside the downtown Washington headquarters of a conservative Christian lobbying group pleaded guilty Wednesday in connection with the shooting.
Corkins pleaded guilty to one federal count of crossing state lines with guns and ammunition. He also pleaded guilty to one count of intent to kill while armed and one count of committing an act of terrorism with the intent to kill.
Those last two counts are District charges.
He is scheduled to be sentenced on April 29.
I’d note that I’m aware of at least a half-dozen left wing terrorists who have been convicted in bomb and murder plots in the the last decade, and the media ignores them almost entirely, as they don’t want to deal with the backlash of Americans being aware of the terrorists the media largely supports.
Have there been any right-wing terrorists convicted in the same time period? I’m aware that the so-called Hutaree militia, but they were acquitted of all charges of conspiracy and sedition, and the two members who were convicted of minor weapons charges and released with time served.
Terrorism in the United States outside of Islamic terrorism is almost a uniquely left-wing phenomena.
Odd how that fact never makes it on the evening news or cable talkfests.
Update: It turns out that Corkins got his targeting data from the radical progressive Mark Potok at the Southern Poverty Law Center, who designates anything he doesn’t like as a “hate group,” including the two peaceful Christian organizations Corkins had decided to try to slaughter.
Don’t we target American supporters of terrorism for extrajudicial killing on the whim of government officials these days?
