Man part of Islamic State terrorist plot ‘because he was overweight, lonely’

Created Jihad Weight Loss Program.

A Massachusetts man accused of participating in a plot to behead conservative blogger Pamela Geller became consumed by Islamic State group propaganda because he was overweight, lonely and desperate for an escape from his bleak life, his defense attorney said Wednesday.

Federal authorities say David Wright conspired with his uncle and a third man to kill Geller on behalf of the terrorist group because they were upset she organised a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas.

The plot was never carried out. Wright also wanted to conduct other attacks in the US and encouraged his uncle to kill police officers, officials say.

    Yes, I see it happen all the time. People I know put on a little weight, and the next thing you know they go on a terrorist rampage. Nothing to do with Islam.

      He must have felt so excluded.

    C’mon now, be nice. He was a bit overweight, had no job, lived with his mama and fantasized about being a somebody. What better way then joining a terrorist group , hatching a plot to kill someone, encouraged his uncle to go after police officers meanwhile hiding in his mama’s basement trying to read the koran. I assume he can read. I notice no mention of his pappy. Probably has no idea who it is and can’t ask his mama as she has no idea either……Such is the life of a rotund black welfare using mama’s boy.

    When he gets to prison I assume he will become a boy toy…..

    Couldn’t he just join a bowling league, or take a night school course?

    He won’t be lonely in prison. I am sure he will find love there, whether he likes it or not.
