In a weak attempt to link President Obama to the deadly police ambush in Dallas last week, Tea Party legal activist Larry Klayman has filed a lawsuit against the president, accusing him of “endangering not just [his] life, as a white law enforcement person of Jewish origin, but also for all Americans, white, black, yellow or brown, no matter what their race or religion.”
The class-action suit, filed Saturday in Dallas, goes on to blame Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and former MSNBC host Al Sharpton, among others, for last week’s fatal police shooting.
Klayman even went so far as to describe Obama and Farrakhan as ‘soul brothers’ in cahoots with one another.
“When the leader of the United States and supposedly the Western world, who was born to a Muslim father, schooled in Muslim schools, and has close ties to black-Muslim leaders like Farrakhan, seeks to incite violence by virtue of his running interference for Muslims and Blacks who are not even representative of African-Americans generally, it’s no wonder Obama-inspired massacres like Dallas happen,” his lawsuits states.
Even while representing Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in court over Arpaio’s questionable policies targeting the Latino community, Klaymen manages to point the finger at Obama for a “race war,” which he claims spurred the untimely deaths of Black men Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. Sterling was shot and killed by Baton Rouge, Louisiana officers while selling CDs outside a convenience store, while a Minnesota cop shot Castile at point-blank range as he reached for his identification.
“For the past seven years, Obama and company have been whipping up reverse racism against non-blacks and non-Muslims as payback for years of discrimination,” Klayman wrote.
The deaths of Sterling and Castile prompted a peaceful protest in downtown Dallas Thursday, which was ultimately marred by a lone gunman who opened fire on unsuspecting police officers there to protect the crowd. Five cops were killed and seven others severely injured.
The shooter, later identified as Micah Xavier Johnson, told authorities the killings were payback for the recent police killings of African-American men.
“It is no wonder some cops, fearing for their lives in this anti-white, anti-Semitic and anti-Christian environment, sometimes are prone to literally pull the trigger too quickly,” Klaymen worte. “With the hateful mood created by Obama and company, they understandably think that armed blacks who refuse to recognize their law enforcement powers may be out to off them.”
