Obama Supporter Says Whole Lot Of White People Crying

Barack Obama has been forced to apologize for racist statements made by another one of his spiritual advisers. Chicago Catholic priest Michael Pfleger is a regular guest speaker at Obama’s Trinity church in Chicago, and Obama has referred to Pfleger as a “key source for spiritual guidance.” Pfleger has contributed to Obama’s campaign, and last fall he went to Iowa to campaign for Obama. There was a testimonial from Pfleger on Obama’s website, but they removed it after an embarrassing video of Pfleger showed up on YouTube. Pfleger was a guest speaker last week at Trinity church and he addressed the issue of “white entitlement and supremacy,” and what that has to do with the democratic primaries. He first wanted to look at reparations, and suggested white people give up their 401 saving accounts to make up for slavery. “Honestly now, to address the one who says, ‘Don’t hold me responsible 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, throw away your 401 fund, throw away your trust fund, throw away all the monies you put away into the company you walked into because your daddy and grand daddy,” Pfleger says. Then he adds, “Unless you are willing to give up the benefits then you must be responsible for what was done in your generation, because you are the beneficiaries of this insurance policy.” I wonder if Rev. Wrights 10 million dollar house the church just gave him is part of the reparations project Pfleger is promoting? He then claims Hillary Clinton assumed she would win because she was white. “We must be honest enough to expose white entitlement and supremacy wherever it raises its head.” He tells the congregation, “Reverend Moss, when Hillary was crying, 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. I’m Bill’s wife. I’m white. And this is mine. I just got to 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? I’m white. I’m entitled. There’s a black man stealing my show.'” He then broke the crowd up by acting like a crying Hillary Clinton. Then he added, “She wasn’t the only one crying. There was a whole lot of white people crying.” He seemed to understand it was controversial and would be seen by others since he ended by saying, “I’m sorry. I don’t want to get you into any more trouble.” Rev. Moss then thanked God for such a great sermon and man. I’m not sure what God has to do with any of this. It does seem to further back up that this church preaches divisiveness on a regular basis. Obama either slept through church or he has lied about what he has heard. He joined this church over 20 years ago to prove he was black enough to represent his constituents. Now his constituents are changing so he has to repudiate all that he has grown up with. He has already responded to this sermon by throwing another “spiritual adviser” under the bus, just like he did his grandmother, Farrakhan, and Rev. Wright. Obama denounced Pfleger by saying, “As I have traveled this country, I’ve been impressed not by what divides us, but by all that that unites us. That is why I am 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.”

    well no wonder the kids in Chicago are all fucked up and in gangs if this is type of divisiveness that is taught in the church. why don’t they yell at them about the love of Jesus, and getting along with your neighbor? And since when is teaching someone to be a victim “fighting” for them? It was so divisive that the preacher later had to apologize for these statements. this type of talk does not belong in the pulpit or the campaign.

    Of course if it’s a Republican candidate’s pastor making similar statements, then separation of church and state doesn’t apply and such statements are fair game, right?
