Fr. Michael Pfleger: the Bully Becomes the Victim

That's right, the constant bullying that has marked the career, for good or bad, of Chicago Catholic Priest Michael Pfleger has turned to victimhood and paranoia. The paranoia may be well placed but the victimhood is as predictable as day turns to night. Sun Times religion reporter Cathleen Falsani had an exclusive interview with Pfleger on Monday that generally sounded like a pity-fest, it included this piece of nonsense from Pfleger "(t)his is a dangerous time in America, the freest country in the world, where you have to whisper your thoughts."

Just like a schoolyard bully, when the bullying stops working the victimhood starts. It is also worth noting that the problem here according to Pfleger was his own imperilling of the Obama campaign rather than overt racism that underpinned Pfleger's "conversation."

The world will enjoy learning about the South Side and its politics. Think they might end up somewhere along the line a little disappointed? Well, at least they will get a good show.

And what's a community organizer anyway? What do they organize? What do they do with their time? And how come we don't have any around here?
