I just got in from driving around, where I had silence in the car after turning off Laura Ingraham.
And Neil Boortz.
And Michael Savage
Et al, Et Cetera.
Because here’s the thing that bugs me most right now. The instant I haear somebody start screaming or whining or nagging me into believing that Michael Jackson was a pedophile, I shut off the radio.
Screw ’em. We still live in the United States of America, do we not? People are still presumed “Innocent Until Proven Guilty,” are they not?
Michael Jackson was found Not Guilty of pedophilia, was-he-not?
Yes. He was, Thank you. That means a jury of 12 men and women in a court of law said there was insufficient evidence to convict him. That means that despite the statements of three children (whom later recanted), there was no physical evidence he did this terrible thing.
Yet the know-nothings continue to pile on. He was a PEDOPHILE, don’t ya know?
Was Michael Jackson a freak? Yes, he was. Was Michael Jackson a loon? Oh yes, a very rare and odd breed of loon at that. Did Michael Jackson have a freakish and weird appearance? Yes, he did. And you know what? If I had a brothers who teased me about my appearance and made fun of every time I missed a dance step, I might have turned out like that, too. If I’d had a father who physically, emotionally, and mentally abused me until I was a pitiful case of arrested development, barely able to function in society, I would have had some quirks too. If the only people that were nice to me were women (my sisters, my mother, and Diana Ross) I might have tried to look like a woman, too.
You don’t think that happened? Read some of the biographies. The brothers have openly admitted it. Jermain “hated” Michael till the day he died. Joe Jackson has admitted he took a belt to the boys “when they got out of line.” I can show you these things in writing, in their own words.
Michael Jackson had a preoccupation with young children — because he never had a childhood. He enjoyed their company –because he was frozen at that mental age by the abuse. He did from an overdose of medications — because he couldn’t sleep. That’s a cardinal sign of child abuse — you can’t sleep, because that’s when the abuser comes for you.
You want to tell me Michael Jackson was a pedophile? Prove it. Show me the evidence. Show me the witnesses. Show me the testimony.
I’ll show you the acquittal.
You remember Richard Jewell – the security guard at Atlanta’s Olympic Park that found a bomb? Remember how he was hounded as “guilty” until he won million dollar judgements from CBS and NBC? He wasn’t guilty — and he died of complications of his diabetes after the stress of the notoriety was too mjch for him.
Almost, one might say, in an eerie parallel of Michael Jackson.
But we also have free speech here. If you want to accuse a dead man who can’t defend himself, go ahead. If you want to pile more abuse on the abused, be my guest. If you want to make accusation against a man acquitted of that crime already, toot your own horn.
Just don’t tell me you’re being “fair”, or that you’re being anything like an American. In America, you’re innocent until proven guilty – and Michael has already been found not guilty by a jury of his peers.
But then, Senator McCarthy thought he was doing a good thing, too.
