Pfleger excuse ‘thought the live Internet link was not running.’

Louis Farrakhan and Father Michael Pfleger at St. Sabina

This is primarily part of the story referred to below from WorldNetDaily, by Aaron Klein.

… St. Sabina, the Chicago Catholic parish that was led by controversial pastor Michael Pfleger, an outspoken Farrakhan supporter who hosted the Nation of Islam chief at his parish several times.

The Archdiocese of Chicago yesterday removed Pfleger from his duties at St. Sabina for an unspecified time following a well-publicized sermon at Trinity church two weeks ago in which Pfleger claimed Sen. Hillary Clinton cried in public because she thought being white entitled her to the Democratic presidential nomination.

Pfleger told the Chicago Sun-Times he felt free to speak about Clinton because he believed his sermon was not being recorded. He said he thought the live Internet link that normally broadcasts Trinity sermons was not running.

"They told me it was down," Pfleger said. "Their live streaming had been down all day, and they didn't know whether it was back up. … I regret the dramatization that I was naive enough to believe was just going to be kept among that church."

Pfleger hosted Farrakhan at his church as late as last May, Farrakhan's first public appearance since he announced in 2006 he had been suffering from prostate cancer and was seriously ill.

According to reports, Pfleger spent hours with the Nation of Islam chief during his illness. Pfleger previously enlisted Farrakhan's support for several of his initiatives, including an anti-gun protest last year.
From berksconservative.
In a demonstration at Chuck's Gun Shop, Rev. Pfleger told the crowd: "We're going to find you and snuff you out.... Like a rat you're going to hide. But like a rat, we're going to catch you and pull you out.... We’re going to snuff out John Riggio." Rev. Pfleger also promised: "We're going to snuff out legislators that are voting against our gun laws. We're coming for you because we're not going to sit idly."

Rev. Pfleger later denied that his words had been meant to invoke violence, or that he had known that "snuff out" means to "kill." Rather, the determination to "snuff out" Riggio was a determination to find out his home address, which was not publicly available.
What sort of person tries to excuse hate speech in this manner? He only said it because he thought ‘whitey’ wouldn’t find out, is that a legitimate reason to say what he did? This guy is dangerous. “Didn’t know that snuff out means to kill?” He has to be Joking.


  1. Ah the old "I didn't know mike was on" defense.

    That's purely Clintonian.

    What a crock, of course.
    He said it and he meant it and now he's mad that it's out there.

    Tough Noogies, Mr. Pfleger.
    You Pflooked Up.

  2. You have a way with words Al.

    Pfleger is adopting the back biters defense, he wouldn't say it if the people he is talking about are likely to hear it.

  3. I love words, as you may have determined.

    Headlines are my favorite.
