Peter King: Michael Jackson is a Pedophile, Child Molester

by at . Comments

U.S. Representative Peter King (R-N.Y.) says Michael Jackson was a “pervert” and is calling on society to stop “glorifying” the late entertainer.

King believes the singer - whom he called a “low-life” - is being unfairly glorified in the days after Jackson's death on June 25 at the age of 50.

Meanwhile, according to this member of Congress, our pathetic society is "ignoring the efforts" of teachers, police officers, firefighters and veterans.

King claims the “day in and day out” coverage of Jackson’s death is “too politically correct” and calls on America to “knock out the psychobabble.”

“He was a pervert, a child molester; he was a pedophile. To be giving this much coverage to him, day in and day out, what does it say about us as a country?"

While King does raise a somewhat valid point of Michael's troubled last 10-15 years rarely being mentioned in the wake of his death, what more is there to say?

Everyone knows Michael had issues in his past, and no one is denying them. Should we refrain from honoring the legacy of a legend simply for that reason?

His remarks are also flawed for two reasons:

  1. The media covering Michael Jackson isn't related to coverage of our men and women in uniform, who were honored nationally this past weekend. Morons capitalizing on their sacrifice for a good sound bite are also a problem.
  2. Michael Jackson was unquestionably a strange, disturbed individual with myriad personal problems, but was not actually convicted of any charges, nor was he determined to be a pedophile by psychologists in his 2005 trial.

Are Peter King's comments on Michael out of line?

PETER KING: YOU ARE A HERO! THANK YOU for saying what no other elected official has the balls to say - Michael Jackson, though he could sing and dance like noone else, was a CHILD MOLESTER, a PEDOPHILE! He was a very sick, perverted thing.

America is indeed in a sorry state to have congressman like Peter King and bloggers who concur with him. First, seek to understand before passing judgement. Second, before passing judgement, know that you are also wearing tainted glasses. If Michael was guilty, he would have been convicted and not acquitted. If you think he is still guilty, then the entire American legal system is seriously flawed. No man has equalled Michael in his generosity to charity and humanity. A person without pure heart will never be able to contribute $350m to charity and will 40% of his assets to children who may plausibly not be his.

Michael Jackson was found not guilty because "the evidence wasnt there" it wasnt there because he paid his accuse a settlement. That is just downright shady and disgusting. I agree with Peter King is lifestyle should overshadow any so called "talent" he had. He is a drug addicted, pervert and he is dead. The End

i agree with peter king soooo much !
so many people hated him while he was alive but pretend to worship him now.
get a grip.
peter king is right- why aren't the REAL heroes of the world being praised instead of a guy who, a few short weeks ago, was the butt of everyone's jokes ?
the same things happened when jade goody died and i am so sick of this whole "they are dead, we must love them" thing.

This guy needs to STFU. He is talking about people doing work in AIDS facilities etc. does this jackass not realize that Michael donated over 350 million dollars of his money to help these places out? Just another loser looking for some attention from the media.

If I call Rep. King a ‘low-life’ and a ‘pervert’, that means it is true? Jackson was acquitted of all charges. The presumption of innocence is still a legal right in US. Or am I wrong?
