Dallas, TX — In July of this year, a cowardly murderer opened fire on police during a peaceful protest over the recent police killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. Twelve Dallas law enforcement officers were shot in the vicious downtown Dallas ambush, with five being fatally wounded. One of those killed was Patrick Zamarripa, whose father is now suing Black Lives Matter, George Soros, and other groups for allegedly “inciting a war on police” that led to the death of his son.
According to the Fort Worth Star Telegram, Enrique Zamarripa filed a 43-page lawsuit Monday in U.S. District Court seeking a whopping $550 million in damages. According to the lawsuit:
“While Defendant Black Lives Matter claims to combat anti-black racism, the movement has in fact incited and committed further violence, severe bodily injury and death against police officers of all races and ethnicities, Jews, and Caucasians. Defendant Black Lives Matter is in fact a violent and revolutionary criminal gang.”
Named in the lawsuit is Minister Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Al Sharpton, Deray McKesson, Johnetta Elzie, Malik Zulu Shabazz, leader of the New Black Panther Party, and George Soros who financially supports Black Lives Matter.
As the Free Thought Project has previously reported, Soros is known for funding and moving around Black Lives Matter protesters. While there is certainly nothing wrong with a group standing up against systemic racism, Soros, as we have shown, has an ulterior motive — federalized police.
That being said, Black Lives Matter can, in no way, be held responsible for the actions of a single individual. Especially considering the fact that this individual specifically noted that he was not connected to any group.
After the shooting, police named the individual as 25-year-old Micah Xavier Johnson, a U.S. Army veteran. Johnson told police he was “not affiliated with any groups,” and he said he “did this alone,” before ultimately being killed, Dallas Police Chief David Brown said.
However, after claiming he was not affiliated with any groups, chief Brown went on to make the following statement, which likely led to this lawsuit.
“He was upset about Black Lives Matter (and) he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.”
Zamarripa is being represented by Washington, D.C., attorney Larry E. Klayman of the Freedom Watch group. Earlier this year, Klayman filed a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton on behalf of two men who were killed in the Benghazi, Libya, attack in 2012, according to the Fort Worth Star Telegram.
“I want justice for my son,” Zamarripa told the news site. “He served three tours in Iraq, he protected his country and he protected everybody. And he gave up his life doing that. When people were running away from the gunshots, he was running toward them.”
Although the Next Generation Action Network was not named in the lawsuit, its founder is outspoken against the lawsuit as it was not Black Lives Matter who organized the protest — it was NGAN.
Dominique Alexander, the NGAN founder, said Monday night that he remains “prayerful” for Zamarripa’s family, but he was frustrated by the lawsuit, according to the Telegram.
The protest in July, he said, was organized in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, reports the paper, but it wasn’t arranged by the official BLM organization.
“You’re suing somebody who had nothing to do with this rally,” Alexander said. “The only thing this [lawsuit] has done is continue to feed the rhetoric. There is a problem in America, and we have to come together to address it.”
While it is unlikely that the suit will be successful, the idea of exposing George Soros for his role in inciting unrest and divide is certainly a positive. On Thursday, the Free Thought Project exposed Soros’ role, once again, in the recent Trump protests. While there are undoubtedly people all over the country peacefully protesting the outcome of the election, Soros has been exposed bussing in people, and had seemingly planned for the unrest by already having anti-Trump signs printed and ready to go.
