There are many within all of the cultures that make up America that are shining lights of hope. These men and women run contrary to what is the worst of our respective culture. Many times, these people are on the sidelines. Never seeking to make a name for themselves. They go through life doing good where they can and doing their duty.
But, there are times when the truth is so abused and maligned that there has to be action. Times when we cannot sit back and remain silent. At these times, it will take the voice of one within the culture to bring change. And praise God, these voices are multiplying.
The head of a Dallas police organization is suing a collection of Black Lives Matter figureheads and other prominent individuals for allegedly inciting racial violence against American police officers.
Dallas Police Department Sergeant Demetrick Pennie, President of the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation, filed an amended federal complaint September 16 against more than a dozen defendant institutions and individuals to build a class action case on behalf of “police officers and other law enforcement persons of all races and ethnicities including but not limited to Jews, Christians and Caucasians” for “inciting” race riots and related violence.
The suit hopes to produce damages and an injunction placed against
alleged threats of racially-motivated violence going forward.
And you will not believe who the defendants are.
The defendants represent a who’s who of public figures in both racial and general political matters. Apart from founding members and public faces related to Black Lives Matter, Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam; Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action Network; Malik Zulu Shabazz and the New Black Panthers; George Soros; President Barack Obama; former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder; and Democrat Nominee Hillary Clinton are all included in the suit.
With such powerful people on the lawsuit, I fear for this officer. We need to pray that God protects him and gives him success.
