On April 10th 2015, the FBI quietly arrested Robert Doggart, a white, 63-year-old Tennessee resident, after they discovered he was plotting to attack Islamberg, a small, predominantly African-American Muslim community in upstate New York. Doggart, a failed Congressional candidate, and a former member of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps, had made extensive preparations for the assault, and recruited several volunteers to assist him. Intending to use explosives and Molotov cocktails, he planned to firebomb a mosque, a cafeteria, and a school in the village, and then use assault rifles and a machete to attack the nearly three dozen families living in Islamberg. If successful, Doggart would have carried out the deadliest terror attack on American soil since 9/11. Despite Doggart's politically motivated plans, the government neglected to charge him with terrorism. The American media took much less interest in this potential attack than they have done in global terror plots involving Muslims. Not surprising, considering many sections of the American media have consistently labeled Islamberg and its sister communities to be 'no go' hotbeds of radicalism. Instead, he was indicted for attempting to 'destroy religious property', and making 'interstate communication of threats'. Unlike conspiracy cases involving Muslim defendants, the FBI issued no press release about Doggart's indictment, and mainstream media all but ignored his arrest. None of the individuals who Doggart spoke with about his plans, and were recorded on government wiretaps offering to support him, were arrested for their role in the plot. In May 2015, less than a month after his arrest, a Tennessee judge ordered Doggart to be released on bail. Shocked by the media's silence, and the failure of government authorities to provide adequate protection, the residents of Islamberg embark on a campaign to inform the American public of the truth about their community. Through interviews with the intended targets of Doggart's attack - old and young - the emotional and psychological scars of this event come directly into view. Ultimately, White Fright paints a haunting portrait of the human consequences of racism, and the systematic failure of our government, and media, to protect vulnerable communities from future potential attacks.
