I've known about Father Michael Pfleger for some time, a radical and anti-Semitic Catholic priest with a longstanding association not only with Wright and Trinity but with longstanding ties to Louis Farrakhan, so much so that Farrakhan has even spoken at Father Michael Pfleger's St. Sabina church. And like Jeremiah Wright, Pfleger has long been close to Barack Hussein Obama and Pfleger's endorsement appeared on Obama's faith endorsements page, right where Jeremiah Wright's used to be... before he became too much of an embarrassment. (Pfleger's endorsement has likewise been scrubbed..for the same reason).
Here's a transcript of what this loathsome racist had to say: Pastor Otis Moss: He needs no introduction. He’s a friend of Trinity, he’s a brother beloved. He’s a preacher par excellence. He’s a prophetic, powerful pulpiteer. He is our friend. He is our brother. He is none other than Father Michael Pfleger. (Crowd on its feet, standing ovation, loud applause). We welcome him once again… We must be honest enough to expose white entitlement and supremacy wherever it raises its head. I said before I don’t want this to be political because, you know, I’m very unpolitical (mocking tone, huge laughter). …When Hillary was crying (gesturing tears, uproarious
Pfleger: [Unintelligible] to address the one who says, “Well, don’t hold me responsible (gesticulating) for what my ancestors did. But you have enjoyed the benefits of what your ancestors did and unless you are ready to give up the benefits (voice rising), throw away your 401 fund, throw away your trust fund, throw away all the money you put into the company you WALKED INTO BECAUSE YO’ DADDY AND YO’ GRANDDADDY AND YO’ GREATGRANDDADDY–(screaming at the top of his lungs)–UNLESS YOU’RE WILLING TO GIVE UP THE BENEFITS, THEN YOU MUST BE REPSONSIBLE FOR WHAT WAS DONE IN YOUR GENERATION ‘CUZ YOU ARE THE BENEFICIARY OF THIS INSURANCE POLICY! (Wild gestures, wild applause).
laughter from audience)–and people said that was put on–I really don’t believe it was put on. I really believe that she just always thought ‘This is mine’ (laughter, hoots). ‘I’m Bill’s wife. I’m WHITE. And this is mine. And I jus’ gotta get up. And step into the plate. And then out of nowhere came, ‘Hey, I’m Barack Obama.’ And she said: ‘Oh, damn!’ WHERE DID YOU COME FROM!?!?! (Crowd going nuts, Pfleger screaming). I’M WHITE! I’M ENTITLED! THERE’S A BLACK MAN STEALING MY SHOW. (MOCK SOBS!) SHE WASN’T THE ONLY ONE CRYING! THERE WAS A WHOLE LOTTA WHITE PEOPLE CRYING!
I’m sorry. I don’t wanna get you in any mo’ trouble. The livestreaming just went out again…

And by the way, I'm not deliberately trying to make Phleger sound like he was speaking in dialect...that's really the way he spoke if front of this crowd. So, my black brothers and sisters, talking about racist...how do YOU feel about a white person talking down to you like this?
Father Pfleger's church is just a short distance away from the Nation Of Islam's main mosque, Mosque Maryam, and by Pflger's own admission, He and the NOI's Louis Farrakhan are close buddies. Pfleger has defended the Nation of Islam repeatedly and insulted Jewish critics of NOI and its anti-Semitic mesaage as "narrow minded".
In common with a lot of Barack Hussein Obama's advisors and supporters, Pfleger also seems to have a real soft spot for radical Islam and its apologists. Another guest of Father Michael Pfleger at St. Sabina was Kareem Irfan, former chairman of the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago. And Pfleger had him there on the anniversary of 9/11, no less! Kareem Irfan is infamous for excusing beheadings by terrorists and is also a member of the Islamic Soiciety of North America (ISNA), a Saudi subsidized Wahhabi front group .
Obama and Phleger have had a long and close relationship. As a state senator, Obama secured two grants related to Pfleger's church — one for $100,000 to repair The Ark community center at the church in 2000 and the other for $125,000 for computers at the church's employment resource center.
Obama has cited Pfleger, along with Wright, as one of his spiritual advisers in a 2004 Chicago Sun-Times story. And Pfleger has worked on Obama's campaign.
And Obama's response to all this? Do you have to ask?
"I'm deeply disappointed in Father Pfleger's divisive, backward-looking rhetoric, which doesn't reflect the country I see or the desire of people across America to come together in common cause."
Another one under the bus! At least in public. And you'll note that Obama is still a proud member of Trinity Church.
