Reverend Pflagler Quid Pro
By Mark Neckameyer

Rev. Michael Pfleger, the race baiting, rabble rousing proclaimed
buddy of Rev. Wright, Louis Farrakhan and Senator Barack Obama,
clearly went way over the line this week in his loudly cheered
racist, anti-feminist tirade at Wright/Obama's Trinity church.
He sounded every bit as terrible as any White Supremacist or
Klansman ever has on the other extreme side as he mocked and
belittled Hillary Clinton and the entire White race. As soon
as the video got out, Obama faintly rejected the man and even
Pflager made a halfhearted apology but is this enough?
Senator Obama has called Pflagler
his "spiritual counselor" much as he did with the now
infamous Rev. Wright. Pflagler until recently was a major factor
in "Catholics for Obama". The scariest part is Obama
donated $100,000.00 to Pflagler to use in various Chicago projects.
This was not his own money of course, Obama gave his radical
preacher friend $100,000.00 of taxpayer money tucked into a piece
of legislation already voted on; one of those infamous "earmarks"
Obama uses so freely, a Congressional device opposed by John
McCain. After his group received the taxpayer funds Pflagler
made contributions to Obama's campaign. I wonder where this
money came from! Isn't this FBI investigation material? Isn't
this one of those quid pro quos they talk about where the politician
rewards a donor who then "kicks back" some of the loot?
As a Republican I had hoped Senator Obama would be selected by
the Democrats as I reasoned that his scant experience and extreme
left-wing views would make him easier to defeat and I wanted
John McCain to win the Presidency next November. Now I am afraid
I might get what I wished for. What if Obama does get elected
bringing the Farrakahans, Pflaglers and Wrights, racists all,
into power with him? This is going to be a very scary few months,
I seriously believe our Republic is perhaps threatened by this
bunch more seriously than at any prior time in our history.
