Fr. Pfleger sticks by the substance of his remarks from Tinity UCC’s pulpit, as opposed to the manner of delivery. Did Hillary Clinton feel entitled to the Democratic presidential nomination. It’s hard not to think so. Does this express a more general feeling among whites that we’re entitled to be at the front of the line? Without pronouncing on the merits of that proposition, my feeling is that any feeling of entitlement on Hillary’s part transcended considerations of race. A youngish white newcomer (of either gender) would, I’m guessing, have been regarded in much the same way as Obama was by the Clintonistas. So maybe not a very accurate homily on Fr. Pfleger’s part.
