Pfleger: 'They Want to Kill Me'

To no surprise, the psychotic priest and good buddy of Barack Obama, the Rev. Michael Pfleger, is now playing the victim card.

A time-tested routine in far-left circles. Say something outrageous, get called on it, then start the poor me act.

Lame. Really lame.

Naturally, he provides no evidence as to who they are (probably the neo-cons), just like Obama offered none Saturday night when he claimed the media were harassing Trinity Church members.

Well, Reverend Vanilla Ice claims he'll speak out today. We're all breathless with anticipation.
The Rev. Michael Pfleger, who helped reignite Barack Obama's pastor problems by mocking Hillary Clinton, said this evening he's received "thousands of hate threats" since his videotaped pulpit rant.

"They want to kill me," Pfleger told parishioners during a service in a St. Sabina Church chapel on Chicago's South Side this evening. "It's been very ugly.
No, sir, what's ugly is your antics, Jeremiah Wright's antics, and Michelle Obama's antics. Being exposed for a race-baiting hustler, well, that just comes with the scrutiny Obama is finally facing from a mostly compliant media who finally realize wearing cheerleder outfits and waving pom-poms looks unprofessional.
In his brief comments this evening, Pfleger did not name any candidates, and said he would address the controversy at a Sunday mass at St. Sabina.

"I'm not going to make a statement," Pfleger told the crowded chapel. "My real statement will be tomorrow."

But he did say it's been a difficult week filled with an unspecified surgery on Tuesday and a deluge of threats.

"It's a very difficult situation," he said. "I've received thousands of hate threats."

He did not offer any specifics from the pulpit, and declined through an aide to comment further. That included declining a specific request by the Sun-Times for a comment on Obama's decision to leave Trinity church.
As for Obama, as noted earlier, he provides no evidence church members are being harassed.

Just making it up as he goes along.
But even before Pfleger's lapse, Obama said "It's also clear that Rev. Moss and the church have been suffering from all of the tension my campaign has visited on them. We have these news organizations harassing members at their homes and workplaces."
If indeed some media outlets are badgering people, then shame on them. But shouldn't we at least identify who's doing it?

Meanwhile, Obama's headaches continue to pile up. If this is true and he's got an enemy agent as an advisor, then Hillary Clinton would be insane to pack it in.

Thanks to Hot Air for the link.

Update: Hot Air links again and Gateway Pundit has Rev. Ice's non-apology apology.

OK, now that the Reverend Vanilla Ice moniker has taken root, we just can't resist this classic parody.
