Larry Klayman is Still Suing Obama

Larry Klayman, a birther and leader of the failed movement to overthrow the Obama administration, has filed another lawsuit against former President Obama because Obama tweeted a thing.

Really.

“Someone with an Arabic accent, a female, charged at me and others in a very aggressive and provocative way,” Klayman said, “causing us fear of immediate bodily injury or death—that’s the standard for assault. She was obviously egged on by President Obama after he left office, in his private capacity, when he was giving a call to arms, in effect, to protesters to continue this mayhem and destruction.”

Klayman is referring to a statement posted on the former president's twitter account that commended Americans for standing up for their beliefs and democracy.

It's an understatement to say this is a stretch, but if you were apply Klayman's standards to Trump, Trump would be guilty of far more than inciting someone to speak in an "Arabic accent," which isn't a real thing. Arabic is a language, not an accent.

Hate crimes, violence and vandalism follow in the wake of Trump who tweets ridiculous, incendiary bullshit multiple times per day every day.

Larry Klayman is a racist crank and I still don't know why he hasn't been disbarred.

    I’m willing to give Larry Klayman a qualified pass on “Arabic accent,” if only because there’s really no other way to describe the accent of someone who speaks Arabic (French is a language; it’s also how one describes the accent of someone who speaks that language).

    That said, this lawsuit is purest moonshine. I do not believe there was an Arabic-speaking protester at LAX who charged Klayman in a manner so threatening that Brave Sir Robin—erm, Larry Klayman—”and others” (that there makes this art) felt in fear for their lives (the only stereotype missing is that she was ululating in between cries of “Allahu akbar!”), a felonious attack so outrageous it went unreported in any forum other than the ongoing dialog inside Klayman’s head until he could work up the courage to sue … Barack Obama.

    Vids or it didn’t happen, Larry.

    Inspector Javert is still on the case! Or is it Lieutenant Phillip Gerard?

    This is a ridiculous, frivolous lawsuit. No one could view President Obama’s language as inciting anything but peaceful protest. And someone doing nothing more than speaking a foreign language while protesting cannot be considered to be committing assault just because Kayman got some half baked, delusional idea in his head about what was going on. I’m surprised he didn’t refer to the incident as the Klayman Airport Massacre. That seems to be how it works now.

    If you piss a judge off with enough frivolous lawsuit, they’ll label you a vexatious litigant.

    What that means is that, before you’re allowed to sue anyone for any reason, just to file the paperwork, you need to get a judge’s approval that it passes the sniff-test. No trials, no hearings, just a judge unilaterally deciding whether you’re wasting court time or not.

    Frankly, I’m shocked that neither he nor Trump have such an order in effect.

    Being a sore loser is bad enough. Being a sore winner is just pathetic. Even the government becoming, for all intents and purposes officially racist isn’t enough to feed whatever’s gnawing away at this fool’s insides. Good grief.
