The horrific shootings in Dallas which left five police officers dead last week were the work of sick, angry man who felt he had to exact revenge for the tragic deaths of two black men at the hands of police officers in Louisiana and Minnesota. But to hear Larry Klayman, a fanatical Tea Party member who also happens to be an attorney, they were actually the fault of President Obama and the Nation of Islam.
Klayman has now filed suit against the President and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, claiming Obama is:
“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 lawsuit, filed yesterday in Dallas, also accuses the President of being “soul brothers” with both Farrakhan and MSNBC host Al Sharpton.
Klayman also asserts in his preposterous lawsuit that:
“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.”
If you aren’t aware of Klayman’s checkered past, he’s currently serving as the attorney for Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio as Arpaio fights charges that he has racially profiled and targeted Hispanics in his county for years.
The clearly unstable Klayman has also written that it’s not surprising the police officers were shot in Dallas:
“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.”
And it’s no wonder there is so much hatred and violence emanating from the far right in this country when you consider they have people like Larry Klayman sounding the trumpet for intolerance and stupidity.
