Dallas police sergeant Demetrick Pennie filed a federal lawsuit on Friday against (deep breath): the Nation of Islam, its leader Louis Farrakhan; Rev. Al Sharpton and his National Action Network; Black Lives Matter, #BLM activists Rashad Turner, Opal Tometi, Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, Deray Mckesson, and Johnetta Elize; the New Black Panthers Party and its leader Malik Zulu Shabazz; George Soros; President Obama; Eric Holder; and Hillary Clinton, accusing them of inciting attacks on law enforcement officers “of all races and ethnicities including but not limited to Jews, Christians and Caucasians.”

If that wording sounds a little off, it’s likely because Pennie, who is black, is being represented by his co-plaintiff, Larry Klayman, the founder of Judicial Watch, the conservative legal organization that played a role in most of the Clinton administrations’s scandals.

Since then, after being ousted from Judicial Watch partially on charges that someone who is divorced cannot lead a “pro-family organization,” he founded FreedomWatch USA, which has filed a lawsuit accusing President Obama of intentionally letting Ebola into the country, which is, of course, “the direct result of discrimination against Plaintiff on the basis of his Caucasian race and Jewish-Christian religion and in favor of people of the African-Black race and the Islamic religion.”

Klayman also sued Obama, Farrakhan, Sharpton, and Black Lives Matter after the shootings of five Dallas police officers for “endangering his life as a law enforcement person of Jewish origin.”

Pennie, who is also the president of the nonprofit Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation, made headlines earlier this year for inviting Cleveland Browns player Isaiah Crowell to the funeral of one of the Dallas officers killed after Crowell made posts about police brutality against black people on Facebook.
