  • ‘Justice for Trayvon’ Chicago: ‘Racism Is in DNA of America’

    FrontPage Magazine ^ | July 22, 2013 | Michael Volpe
    At the July 20 Chicago “Justice for Trayvon” rally, which garnered somewhere between 5-10 thousand people (predominantly African-American), mainstream public figures like Jesse Jackson and celebrities like MC Lyte demonstrated alongside radical groups like the International Socialist Organization (ISO), the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA (REVCOM), Occupy Chicago, and the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL). The event was one of hundreds sponsored by the National Action Network (NAN), run by Al Sharpton. At this particular rally, as was undoubtedly the case at most of the other Justice for Trayvon rallies across the country, the message was clear: the United States...

    I woke up this morning asking God if I could make a trade. Similar to the NBA, when you have one player on the team who isn’t performing at the level you’d hoped, you try to get someone else who fits the criteria necessary to help the team find victory. In this case, we are playing for Team Black America. Of course I know that America is not the kind of country that would elect someone like Father Michael Pfleger as its president. Father Pfleger is the kind of pastor that becomes the nightmare of anyone who chooses to live...

    Barack Obama has a long record of open association with racists like Jeremiah Wright, racists and anti-Semites like Al Sharpton, hatemongers like Michael Pfleger, and hate organizations like MoveOn.org. "Association" goes far beyond merely being in the same room with the person, as in "guilt by association." It means making public appearances with him, accepting endorsements and testimonials from him, and so on. As shown by the attached screen shots from Barackobama.com, Obama accepted and posted on his website endorsements from Wright and Pfleger until he had to throw the two men under the bus.

    Churches all across the country paid tribute to slain teenager Trayvon Martin on Sunday, some by encouraging their parishioners to wear hoodies. But Father Michael Pfleger, pastor of St. Sabina’s Parish in Chicago, took things a step further. As seen on WGN’s “News at Nine” on Sunday, Pfleger spoke to his congregation with an unusual prop: Martin’s likeness was slumped at the church altar, complete with a red hoodie, a bag of Skittles and an Arizona Ice Tea. Pfleger encouraged his congregation to be proactive in their response to the shooting. ...more (w/video)...

    The Rev. Michael Pfleger today joined the chorus of voices demanding justice in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, an African-American teenager shot in Florida by a man on neighborhood watch. Pfleger told the audience at St. Sabina Roman Catholic Church to demand racial justice and called on officials to treat the death of all children as equally tragic. "America, we demand you deal with race," Pfleger preached. "We demand you protect our children." .... During the service today at St. Sabina, dozens of children and teenagers locked arms and circled the altar. One held a sign reading "We are...

    “Father Pfleger lobbies against concealed weapons law,” WBEZ91.5 reports. Illinois is the only state that doesn't allow carrying concealed weapons. Father Michael Pfleger is pushing to keep it that way in Illinois, and lobbying against the national effort, too. In order to do so, Pfleger, nicknamed “Snuffy” at The War on Guns blog for urging an indignant mob of his followers to “snuff out” a gun shop owner, “held a press event” at St. Sabina Church. In spite of the Church’s tax exempt status, it would seem. As a registered 501(c)(3) public charity: The organization will not, as a substantial...

    Chicago Police Chief Garry McCarthy told parishoners at Saint Sabina Church earlier this month that the easy availability of guns in the United States is the extension of a tradition of "government-sponsored racism" that began with slavery and Jim Crow. McCarthy -— like many urban police officials an advocate of strict gun control -- was speaking at a liberal, activist church whose priest, Father Michael Pfleger, drew national attention for mocking Hillary Clinton in 2008. "This is sensitive. You know, because everybody’s afraid of race. Have you noticed that? Everybody’s afraid of race," McCarthy, a former New York and Newark...

Rev. Michael Pfleger was suspended by Cardinal Francis George of Chicago on April 27 after the priest said he would prefer to leave the Catholic Church than his parish, Saint Sabina, from which he was to be transitioned to nearby Leo Catholic High School. “If my remarks in a radio interview seemed to be a threat to leave the priesthood, I...

    Ending a weeks-long standoff, Cardinal Francis George lifted his suspension of the Rev. Michael Pfleger on Friday after the two men met and Pfleger apologized for statements the cardinal took as a threat to leave the priesthood. Both men issued simultaneous statements, with Pfleger saying he would deliver a transition plan by Dec. 1 for St. Sabina Catholic Church, the South Side parish he has served for nearly 30 years. But neither statement clarified how long Pfleger might remain at the parish. For now, he'll be back in the pulpit for the 11:15 a.m. Mass on Sunday. It was George's...

Michael Pfleger said Tuesday in a meeting with parishioners that if he is not reinstated as pastor of St. Sabina Catholic Church by this weekend, he will begin to preach at other churches. In his first in-depth public remarks about his suspension by Cardinal Francis George, Pfleger told a group of about 150 people that he has received numerous offers to preach from churches throughout the city and the country and needs to get back to preaching. He did not specify at what churches he might speak or their denominations. Still, Pfleger insisted that the only way he...

    Not used to being sidelined, the Rev. Michael Pfleger on Sunday peeked from behind an open door behind the altar and gazed on as Mass went on without him. It was the first Sunday service held at St. Sabina Catholic Church since Cardinal Francis George suspended Pfleger last week for threatening to leave the Roman Catholic Church if he is forced to become the president of Leo Catholic High School. The Rev. Thulani Magwaza, associate pastor at St. Sabina and now administrator of the parish, led the Sunday service, which focused on youth. He prayed for Pfleger and sang his...

    Cardinal Francis George has suspended the faculties of Father Michael Pfleger, the controversial pastor of St. Sabina Parish in Chicago, after the priest said that he would rather leave the Church than accept a position as a high school principal. In an April 27 letter to the priest, Cardinal George recounted that the two were in discussions over whether the priest would leave his pastorate to become president of Leo High School. “You promised to consider what was a proposal, not a demand, even as I urged you to accept it,” the cardinal said. “That process has now been short-circuited...

A secretary at the church said this morning that the rally will include a news conference at the cardinal's home at 1555 N. State Parkway.

Pfleger has also advocated the ordination of women from the altar, had Al Sharpton speak during Mass from the altar while he was running for President, once threatened to “snuff out” a gun shop owner, and flew the American flag upside down outside the Church in protest of street violence. But recently, according to news reports, Cardinal Francis George asked Fr....

Gone was the bravado and showmanship that fueled his earlier homily, in which the city’s best-known priest dramatically stated his desire to stay at the South Side church. And gone, too, were the television cameras that captured the congregation erupting in cheers after his announcement. “We keep going through this, and it has been very painful,” he said. “Spiritually, I'm good, but emotionally, I'm very stretched.” Pfleger told the parish that he had...

Second, it was Cardinal George awarding his controversial priest, Father Michael "Flim-Flam" Pfleger, a Lifetime Achievement Award shortly after Rev. Pfleger denounced the Catholic doctrine of the priesthood during his Easter Sunday sermon. And, after these disasterous doctrinal abuses, it's time the Catholic Special Forces take...

    Nobody expected Saturday's Operation PUSH protest at Chuck's Gun Shop & Range to be anything other than a circus of the bizarre. However, nobody anticipated that an address by a Chicago priest would include a call for the murder of a suburban gun shop owner and legislators who oppose gun control. During an address at an anti-gun rally in front of Chuck's, Rev. Michael Pfleger, pastor of St. Sabina's Church, exhorted the crowd to "drag" shop owner, John Riggio, from his shop "like a rat" and "snuff" him. Rev. Pfleger went on to tell the crowd that legislators that vote...

    Wisdom from Dietrich von Hildebrand Back in 1973 von Hildebrand called the bishops' dereliction of their duties to be "one of the most horrifying and widespread diseases of the Church today." Of course he had seen the outright rebellion to Humanae Vitae and the Land O' Lakes rebellion staged by Catholic colleges. Von Hildebrand then rebukes those same bishops for persecuting those who try to speak out for the True Church. I've no doubt that Von Hildebrand himself suffered at the hands of more than one derelict bishop. The latest example of such a strange prelate is perhaps Cardinal...

Pfleger is the same priest who was (temporarily) suspended for joining with a crowd threatening to “snuff out” a gun shop owner. He’s a pal of race-baiter Rev. Wright (of Obama fame).

    Look who is presiding over a special celebration honoring Catholic clown and race-baiting reverend Michael Pfleger (hat tip: Matt A.)Yes, the Archdiocese of Chicago’s “Office of Racial Justice” is bestowing the demagogic Pfleger of the St. Sabina parish with a “lifetime achievement award” for his “service in pursuit of dismantling racism, injustice and inequalities on behalf of African Americans and all people of color” — and the Archbishop of Chicago himself, Cardinal George, is the official “presider.”

    Stay with me, because you are not going to believe this column. This month in Chicago, an event will honor three men as "living legends." The men are Minister Louis Farrakhan, head of the Nation of Islam, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the former pastor of Barack Obama's church, and Father Michael Pfleger, a radical-left Catholic priest. The men will stand together, and thousands of spectators will pay to see them. The press release announcing the program says, "Because of their legacy of educating, they are being honored as Living Legends for their unfailing work and dedication." And who, exactly, selected...

    Saw this story last night on The O'Reilly Factor and Mediaite, so I started digging as well. One thing is for sure, Rev. Wright may have one of the biggest egos in the country.

    Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs describes in very explicit detail how Barack Obama's official Web site, Organizing for America, has become a "hub for Islamic anti-Semitism." All this hate speech was posted with the full approval of the moderators who exercise editorial control over the site. The fact that Barack Obama allows his official Web site to serve as a platform for this kind of material, along with misogynist and ageist hate speech, is entirely consistent with his personal and open association with racist, anti-Semitic, and anti-Catholic hate groups. ...The following picture was taken at a 2007 meeting of Al...
  • Community Leaders Excluded from Duncan and Holder Meeting (with Father Pfleger!)

    NBC Chicago ^ | October 7 | DICK JOHNSON and STEVE BRYANT
    Community leaders and parents outside Fenger are in disbelief that they are not at the breakfast table with Arne Duncan and Eric Holder. Attorney General Holder and Secretary of Education Duncan are in town to speak, ostensibly, with the community about youth violence -- a blight on Chicago neighborhoods so vividly brought to national attention by the videotaped beating of Derrion Albert. "They are meeting about us without us," said Phillip Jackson of the Black Star Project, a Chicago-based educational reform organization. Duncan and Holder's meeting at the Four Seasons also includes Mayor Daley, Pastor Michael Pfleger, CEO of Chicago...

    Obamarama . . . Back in town: White House political strategist David Axelrod and wife, Susan, hit the Gene Siskel Film Center Sunday night for a screening of the film "Radical Disciple: The Story of Father Pfleger" -- followed by a dinner at Petterino's eatery accompanied by a low-key Secret Service detail. • Background: The film was Axelrod's baby. He began the documentary about the radical South Side Catholic priest eight years ago, before turning over the project to filmmaker Bob Hercules in order to focus on another project: President Obama.

    he Rev. Michael Pfleger, the white pastor from Chicago's predominantly black Saint Sabina Catholic Church, made some incendiary statements at Philander Smith College's opening convocation on Thursday, reported the Arkansas-Democrat Gazette. The clergyman first came to the national spotlight, when he gave a sermon at President Obama's own former controversial Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago in May 2008 (see video below). Here are some of the charges made by Father Pfleger that were recently reported:

    Two Catholic priests who appeared as guests during back-to-back segments on Thursday’s No Bias, No Bull program were treated noticeably differently by CNN’s on-air personalities. Father Michael Pfleger of the Archdiocese of Chicago, who is best known for his racially-charged rhetoric against Hillary Clinton during the 2008 Democratic presidential race, as well as his defense of former Obama pastor Reverend Jeremiah Wright, faced only a couple of pointed questions, most notably about his recent decision to fly an American flag upside-down. In the following segment, Father Mitch Pacwa of the orthodox Catholic TV network EWTN faced a more skeptical and...

    State Representative Annazette Collins found herself in the hot seat after she suggested that kids be educated about guns. She says downstate, children are educated about weapons at a young age....why not in more urban areas. "Down state they teach you that guns are meant for hunting, for protection..here in the urban cities, all they see are guns on tv..and they gun down people." said Collins. She says she only suggested the thought of gun education to help get House Bill 48 passed. The bill would require universal background checks and ban private handgun sales. But the majority of people...

  • Sleeper Cell: ACORN, Obama, [Pfleger], and the Housing Crisis

    10/10/2008 3:38:04 PM PDT · by BIOCHEMKY · 10 replies · 750+ views
    Before ACORN became a household name, Larry Johnson and Eastan McNeal reported that the Obama campaign has been funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars to a shady ACORN shell corporation called Citizens Services, Inc. New information, including the photo above, proves that Obama’s past denials of his relationship with ACORN are not the truth. According to the Leftist Dissent Magazine, the nebulous term, “community organizing,” has shaped Barack Obama: Although he didn’t make community organizing a lifetime career—he left Chicago to attend Harvard Law School—Obama often says that his organizing experience has shaped his approach to politics. Since embarking on...
