Pfleger Surpassing Jeremiah Wright (reparations to come from white 401-K's
National Review Online ^ | 5/29/08

Posted on 06/05/2008 12:26:11 PM PDT by prolifefirst

UPDATE: Much like written words don't do justice to Jeremiah Wright's sermons, the video must be watched to be believed.

Pfleger is introduced as "a friend of Trinity", and then the YouTube skips ahead to one section:

I must 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! [sic] Throw away your trust fund! Throw away all the money that been put away in the company you walked into 'cause your daddy and your granddaddy and your great grandaddy —

(screaming at the top of his lungs)

Unless you are willing to give up the benefits, then you must be responsible for what was done in your generation! 'Cause you are the beneficiary of this insurance policy!

Words cannot describe the surreality of watching a middle-aged white man in a priest's collar appearing like he is trying to imitate Jeremiah Wright at his most outrageous.

[garbled] expose white entitlement. And supremacy, wherever it raises its head. I said before, I really don't want ot make this political, because you know I'm really very unpolitical.

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 gotta get up and step into the plate.'

Then out of nowhere, 'I'm Barack Obama!'

Imitating Hillary's response, screaming at the top of his lungs again, he continues, 'Ah, damn! Where did you come from? I'm white! I'm entitled! There's a black man stealing my show!'

(mocks crying)

She wasn't the only one crying, there was a whole lot of white people crying!

I'm sorry. I don't want in any more trouble. The live-streaming just went out again."

The argument that 401(k) accounts are inherent representations of white supremacy will be news to many, many Americans.

So what is the response from Team Obama going to be? That he didn't know Pfleger was capable of this kind of rhetoric, either?

I believe Rangel first proposed this -

a “one time, 50% tax on 401k holdings”.

The company I "walked into?" My "great granddaddy?"

All but one of my great grandparents weren't even born in the US...the other one was born in the US to an Iroquois mother and an Irish father in 1902. Nobody in my family was here before the Civil War except for the American Indian portion that makes up one-sixteenth of my family tree!

Well I am done paying reparations because our financial adviser is black and I am sure we are not his only client.
Since he makes money off all of us, I am caught up on rep payments.

For many years the Dems have ogled those trillions of dollars in tax exempt funds. They see our 401k’s as nothing more than a huge pot to be tapped. And all this recent emphasis on race is going to give them the excuse they’ve been looking for.

With baby boomers now beginning to retire, “Retirement Inequality” will become the new mantra. It’s not fair that some people have 401k’s to fund their retirements. A new tax will be imposed to provide for the retirement-challenged. The sob stories will include the mandatory couple eating dogfood, the homeless (who overextended their equity line) and-—a new twist-—children having to move aging parents into their homes (gasp!).

Where does this idea that white people are all trust fund babies come from? If they emptied out our 401k’s and gave it all to the morons who park their butts in Trinity’s pews every week, they’d blow it all and be broke again in a year. [cut to the video of the starving Hurricane Katrina survivor with the wide screen tv.]

All my great grand parents were here. But none of them owned a slave. And even if they did, none of them owned a company for me to walk into.

I think most of them were chicken thieves. The more successful stole horses.

At any event, I ain’t paying a dime.

I guess that lets me out. My ancestors were working in the potato fields of Europe up until the late 1890s, long after slavery was abolished here. They owned no slaves in Europe, although they themselves or their ancestors may have been ones (peasants to the feudal lords). Still, I suppose the Father would insist I give up all I have, since I'm white, and it's a case of guilt by race identity.

My family was here before the Revolutionary War, but we come from a long line of folks so dirt poor, we could’ve BEEN slaves! And we also came from a state that split in half because of slavery, and WE sided with the Union!

Hey, Phlem-ger...got to hell.

How DARE YOU talk about reparations. When 370,000 white men died, not one of which you are worthy to tie the boot laces of, to free the slaves...and another 275,000 were wounded.

Are any of us whose relatives died on those fields asking the blacks of today for reparations? Hmmm? No. Nor will we.

But I will not allow you race-bating, liberal, hate-America, scum, who are the real ones keeping the blacks of today down, enslaving them economically and mentally to your foolish notions and legislation, to walk on the graves of those who gave all to truly free them by countenancing such a proposal.

Your ilk should always remember these following phrases:

Molon Labe, Semper Paratus, de oppresso liber, and Sic Semper Tyrannis.

As Benjamin Martin told the decrepid English Colonel in the movie, "The Patriot",...soon, soon.

With demos with commanding numbers in the House and Senate, and the Obamination of Desolation in the White House, look for lots of these sorts of overreaching initiatives over the next two years, as well as a very pissed off electorate in 2010.

Someone could make a very good bit of cash with a wealth protection service following November 2008.

I’d be willing to pay quite a bit to protect what I’ve got stored up with my sacrifices and good decisions.

Liberal ideology is centered around making those that make good, responsible decisions pay for the consequences of those that make irresponsible decisions.

That’s the first undeniable fact about “liberalism”.

The second is that liberals don’t promote ANY freedom except for those issues related to irresponsible sexual behavior choices.

Throw away your 401 fund! [sic]

So everyone who has worked hard and put money in a 401K has benefitted from their ancestors? I guess that means all the black folks working where I do and putting money in their 401Ks have benefited as well.

This so-called priest is an idiot.

HEY! Don't give the RATS any new ideas to "redistribution of wealth". I just hope the "liberal white guilt" voters; The Silky Pony, john Skerry, The Swimmer, Dingy harry reid, San Fran nan, etc., have every one of their retirements "adjusted" for their votes.

I've worked part time most of my life...in order to be at home as much as possible for the kids....I am a nurse, and the pittance that I have been able to put away, with very little contribution from my employee, and without any defined benefits coming after retirement, I know that if I ran into the good reverand he would be sorry, very sorry....

I work nights...days...weekends...holidays..saturday and sunday....virtually any day of the year dealing with drool, piss, poop, vomit, blood from all kinds of sources, the poor, the insane, the dying, .....and yet the good father thinks I don't deserve anything I might have put away for my old age...?

I'd say so. How much was that house worth that Jeremy Wright moved into in that gated, mostly white community? More money than me or any of my ancestors ever had, I'm sure. Wonder why the good Father isn't railing about that excess?

I suppose they want IRAs too.

When the 50% reparation tax happens, will the IRS treat that as a early withdrawal, with the usual tax consequences for the account holder?

I’d bet my bottom dollar that any reparation payments will be tax free, however.
