Veteran converts to Islam, then commits HORRIFIC crime

While concern grows about the potential for foreign terrorists carrying out attacks here in the U.S., homegrown terrorism continues to be a problem. Attacks like those at the Pulse nightclub prove that the threat of terrorism comes in many different shapes and sizes. Although making sure we prevent foreign terrorists from entering the country is vital, the fight against domestic terrorism is equally important.

One of the greatest challenges in defeating homegrown terrorism is it’s difficult to predict who might be radicalized. Typically, when we think of our military veterans, we think of people that protect the people of the United States. But for one Army veteran, the opposite was true. Instead of seeking to protect the people, he was arrested in connection with a disturbing plot.

Robert Hester’s time in the Army was short and tumultuous. He joined in 2012 and faced one disciplinary issue after another, court documents say. By 2013, after a general discharge, he was back home in Missouri, well below the government’s radar.

    NOT a “homegrown terrorist” or so called “copycat” … THIS IS SIMPLY ISLAM

  • Stan Joy

    It’s one thing to allow everybody to have their own believes and faith, with the the exception, that if there is ANY faith that advocates ill will or the overthrow of our government, then they must be either interned or expelled from our country. What really concerns me also is that this young man converting to Islam, why?? We are in a huge amount of trouble, there is a lot that Trump can do and is doing, but he can’t do it all. Folks, I don’t understand, is it because our school systems have become so liberal that they don’t want to teach their students that actually this country, that they are a part of, has been and is perhaps the greatest country the world has EVER seen?? Statistic’s just came out that we allow more foreigners to move to our country than all the countries combined, we are the most giving, caring, and so many other good things that we do and have done. To my knowledge, they don’t teach that in school anymore, why?? If they do, they certainly have no problem telling students(especially in college) how bad our country is. If we want to bring our country back, all that I have mentioned here has to be addressed. Tghanks a lot and God Bless you all.

      Toy hit the nail right on the head. This country is committing SUICIDE! We had better WAKE up SOON!

        NOT gonna happen!
        As long as sheepeople like those in San Franciso keep relecting the likes of Pelosi and New Yorkers do the same with Shummer and Derbin, the leftest influence will continue. One only has to look and see the problem… Conyers, AGE 88 and both the LONGEST and OLDEST member of congress (that is until his BS words were shown) is the poster child for implementation of term limits as were orginally set forth. Each state elected their representives forTW) FOUR YEAR terms. PERIOD.. No getting there and spending 40 years plus. The legistures of each state elected two senators for ONE SIX YEAR term and could FIRE them if they failed TO REPRESENT THE PEOPLE. This was BEFORE the so-called “servants of the people” managed to changes it all to the misable mess in rxistence today.

    When I seen Washington (Lying) Post, , I read no farther. they hate Trump, America, Americans and American Minorities. They also are liars. and the two principle owners are both Globalists that want a one world Government with open borders. (The Bilderberg Group) They are just as bad as MSNBC and worse than NYT or CNN when it comes to fabricating news tat we are suppose to read and believe.Think I am wrong? Ten use your own search engine and look up the Bilderberg group and who belongs, look up and see the phony news articles.its all there. Instead watch foreign news.

    • sunandfun

      You have just showed this country why we are going down hill very rapidly. The people that have seen this country grow greatly are dying at a rapid rate and the ones growing up have no idea that the country is failing. I have said before that this country is NOT the same country I, and MANY of us elderly, grew up in.

      Also look up Soros and his background. He is using his money for the One World Power scenario., That’s fine if you want to become serfs, loose you rights and freedom.

  • Dan Menard

    Better this way for all of us then he take out numerous innocents people with him.
    Still though, he was a troubled person in need of serious help and nobody seemed
    to have cared or could help.

    One disciplinary issue after another, then a general discharge? This man is NOT a “veteran” but a misfit/ mental case. Do NOT give him the honorable title of “veteran”.

      Amen. I feel insulted that that POS is labeled a vet!

      Apparently, the military has gone soft and allows their malcontents out to do harm to our Nation.

    • Ed Park

      He is not a Veteran, he is a reject. The Military has standards, he didn’t meet them!! He gets a release, and those that do usually want them. That is not a trait we recognize in our Veterans.

  • Eevie

    it’s called mind control….hello? a patsy…a manchurian candidate….and they have no memory of what they have done. Happens to us milabs all the time. Memories locked into alters.

  • 4grands

    Why was he labeled a veteran? He is no more than a common terrorist… sounds like not even the enemy wanted him in their terror group. He needs to be behind bars for the rest of his sorry life.

    • Terry Butts

      Unfortunately many simply consider anyone that was in the military a veteran regardless of how they act or why they were removed from service.

      Most look to the word as meaning someone who honorably served until they retired from the service but the media simply uses the term for anyone that was ever in the military regardless of time, actions, or reason for discharge.

      • sunandfun

        Correct but, America is going down hill rapidly.

  • coolman11

    Is it me or do all the terrorists including mass shooters have crazy eyes?

  • William Meekins

    Just another example of an Islamic scumbag. Disgusting!

  • James V. Burnette

    Unless we come up with a machine that can read someone’s mind, their ideas and their interpretation of the world around them, we can vet and vet and re-vet until the cows come home and not identify them all. The only way to keep terrorist out is to turn their attention and focus on someone else to vent their anger and hatred. There problems are internal not external. They have been fighting against their own differences and beliefs for the last 1,400 years. (since Mohammad). They haven’t been able to agree on their own differences so, I guess they want to pick a fight with someone else.

  • Dave Campbell

    Sounds to me like this guy was just a misfit whack job in search of an excuse and found it in Islam.

  • edorr1atcoxdotnet

    All references to this scum of being a veteran should be erased from his records, and label him for what he is SCUM.

  • grin-n-barrett

    When I saw one disciplinary issue after another followed by a general discharge, I realized this was NOT a veteran. This article gives this man a standing he does not deserve. He isn’t a veteran, he is a mistake who should never have been allowed into basic training in the first place. Our military deserves better. Our actual soldiers and veterans should never have been subjected to living, working and or associating with this low quality person in the first place.

  • ken becht

    As a Vietnam Veteran whose father, all my uncles and 3 brothers served in the military I am proud of all who served our country “honorably.” The Fort Hood murderer of defenseless soldiers is an Islamic terrorist who yelled Allah Achbar while he shot unarmed soldiers. This coward was a military officer. Is he a veteran? I don’t think so. Veteran connotes honor and respect which he had neither. He is not a veteran but he is a MURDERING COWARD & should be dead. If someone serves our country then goes wack later after he’s discharged, he’s still a
    veteran by definition. I don’t know him and his problems.

    It is fairly evident that Rober Hestor was really a poor choice to be in the armed forces. He obvopusly had mental issues from the “getgo.” It is too bad that the doctors didn’t pick up on his condition before he was allowed to join. He will need to be watched carefully the rest of his life. Although he is not worthy of being considered a veteran he will probably be eligable for VA care.

  • KingDon

    With his disciplinary record, this airhead in no way qualifies to be called a veteran. - 2015 | Privacy Policy
