Father Pfleger Sings Mammy

The other day, Father Michael Phleger put on a minstrel show at Barack Obama's church. He might as well have donned blackface, and sang, "Mammy."

Instead of being offended, the congregation of Trinity United applauded the man.

Here is a video clip.





From Victor Davis Hanson:


The problem with Father Pfleger's racist and sexist rant about Hillary's tears and whiteness was not that he once had some tenuous relationship with Barack Obama and therefore is the candidate's eternal responsibility. Obama obviously is not responsible for all the dubious people that he has come across in the world of Chicago activism.

But there is a problem, and it really is far larger than Father Pfleger— namely the immediate reaction to the father's sick mimicry from both the congregation and the new pastor of Trinity.

The reception to Pfleger seemed enthusiastic, at least as it appeared on the video "snippet", and indeed after that racist harangue the pastor at Trinity praised Pfleger in the manner he had introduced him.

After the Wright National Press Club meltdown, Obama I think has made the case that Trinity and Wright were distinguishable; and thus while he could finally cut loose the latter, he could still in good conscious stay with the former.

But now? It seems the problem is not Wright per se, but the church itself and its generic pastors that are starting to voice, or at least tolerate, habitually racist themes. After the pastor's and congregation's response to the latest creepy sermon, it is surely past time for Obama now to gracefully leave the congregation that either cannot or will not distance itself from hate speech.

Surely the possible next president of the United States cannot formally belong to a church where Wright and Pfleger have habitually spread their venom, and where both were praised by Wright's successor and current pastor. Otherwise, we wouldn't be wrong to suspect that Wright did not create Trinity, but rather Trinity created Wright.

If the Obamas have already formally quit the Trinity Church disregard the above.



Yeah, I don't think they have. And, don't look for Trinity United to change its ways.

In fact, here's the next preacher scheduled for Trinity United this Sunday.





What is the difference between that, and Father Pfleger? The big difference is that Father Pfleger has sucked a gullible audience of black people into believing he is not parodying them. He probably does believe the things he is saying, or feels he needs to believe them. Nevertheless, his speech is a parody of black mannerisms, and of the stupidest of Black Nationalist tropes about white culture.


From Wikipedia:


Blackface in the narrow sense is a style of theatrical makeup that originated in the United States, used to take on the appearance of certain archetypes of American racism. Blackface in the broader sense includes similarly stereotyped performances even when they do not involve blackface makeup.

If Barack Hussein Obama and the lovely Michelle had been present in the congregation when Phfadda Pfleger went on his racist rant, and had BHO not been running for president at the time, what would his reaction have been? Would he have stood up, declared his revulsion at the priest's words and behavior, taken his two young girls by the hand and strode out the door in protest? Followed by the lovely Michelle? If so, why would he have not done so during numerous other occasions in the past 20 years when such a response was called for?

Just sayin'

Obama digs this stuff, because he hates himself.

This is degrading behavior, all the way around. It is degrading to white people and black people. It is an orgy is parodic hatred. They slither in their slime and return to their vomit. Absolutely disgusting.

The comparison to the phony Pfleger to Al Jolsen in black face is genius. I have borrowed your great idea to create a graphic at my blog, "Father Pleger In Blackface."

More on stereotypes. Are you Yanks aware that the British organisation representing senior University Professors and College vice-chancellors of the major universities has declared a pogrom calling for the expulsion all yids, kikes, ikey-mo's, Elders of Zion and baby-blood drinking Jewish subhumans?

Hi Najistani,
It's been awhile since we've heard from you.

Yeah, we did a post on that story the other day. I heard about it from Melanie Phillips.

Pathetic.

This story is so totally revelatory of these kinds of morons....all I could think of was ... Chris Farley on stage yelling "Kill Whitey" in Tommy Boy.

Well, as of this AM Barry QUIT. That's good for the USA no matter what. Too bad it took so long, but it was the right thing to do. He must feel like he sat down for 20 years in a nest of spiders.

HE DID

Epa,
I guess I am being unforgiving, but it seems to me Obama liked those spiders. It's hard for me to believe he quit because he didn't like the spiders.

I feel the same way about both of these two things:

1) Obama's renunciation of his church

2) VB and BNP's renunciation of anti-Semitism.

I don't believe either one.
