Congressman Bobby Rush says U.S. Rep. Peter King must apologize to Michael Jackson's mother, children for offensive comments


CHICAGO - Today, U.S. Rep. Bobby L. Rush (IL-01) said he was offended and insulted by the comments of New York Rep. Peter King after he called Michael Jackson a "pervert" and questioned the extensive media coverage of the pop star's death. "This guy was a pervert," the New York legislator said in the video, shot Sunday by a staff member outside an American Legion hall and posted to You Tube. "He was a child molester. He was a pedophile. And to be giving this much coverage to him, day in and day out, what does it say about us as a country?" The east coast legislator reiterated his statements today.

Rush, who met with the singer in 2004, and has been a supporter of the Jackson family for several decades demanded an apology from King and said he should be ashamed of himself for politically exploiting the tragic death of the music superstar by expressing headline-grabbing fodder as he contemplates a run for higher office.

"How dare Rep. King utter such scandalous and outlandish comments about Michael Jackson, when he has never opened his mouth to criticize his own colleagues who have been were accused of morally reprehensible, criminal or indecent acts and were forced to resign from public office," said Rush. "Michael Jackson, was found innocent of the allegation against him and has never been classified in any court as being a pedophile. Therefore my collegague's position is just an opinion and not a statement of fact.

"Michael will forever live in the memories of tens of millions of people around the world as one of the most creative, engaging and prolific artist of his generation," Rush continued. "To millions of African Americans children, specifically, his story of being born to a working class family in Gary, Indiana, to becoming one of the world's biggest stars illustrates the benefits of hard work, discipline, perseverance and self-determination. His story, from his humble beginnings, to his tragic passing at age 50 should be told. For Rep. King to use Jackson's death as a springboard to a campaign for a U.S. Senate seat is unacceptable. He owes Michael's mother, Katherine, his children, the entire Jackson family, and his legions of fans an apology."

Rep. Rush also supported the criminal Blago and the perjurer Burris. What does that say about him? Save that indignation for someone more worthy.

So, let me get this straight...one of the biggest race baiters demands an apology because his colleague spoke the truth about Michael Jackson? If the singer was innocent, why did he pay out tens of millions of dollars in hush money? Come to think of it, I've never heard Bobby Rush apologize for any of his morally offensive comments he's made. Anybody remember his part in the Roland Burris fiasco? Here's hoping he gets thrown with the Toddler, Burris and the rest of the so called "politicians" in the next election.

I highly doubt that this extremely ignorant Republican buffoon hasn't stopped to consider his own role and responsibility in sending the youth of America off to be mamed for life or to their deaths in Iraq for a lie or the thousands and thousands of Iraqi children who have been killed or mamed for life. He has some nerve to dare point his blood stained finger judgementally at anyone else.

With each passing day Republicans continue to tell the American people why they need to be kept in the minority for the foreseeable future. This is just the latest example.

On a side note, I hope the Jackson family sues his dumb ass for every penny he's got. And then give the money to children's charities.

Maybe bobby rush can get Obama to apologize for Mr.king,obama is good at apologizing.

PETER KING HAS NO RIGHT TO ISSUE THAT STATEMENT, HE HAS NO RIGHT TO EVEN MENTION MICHAEL JACKSON'S NAME. PETER KING DOES NOT DESERVE TO HOLD A PUBLIC OFFICE BECAUSE HE IS STUPID, RUDE, INCONSIDERATE AND SHOULD BE SUED FOR LIBEL BY THE JACKSON FAMILY.

I can't stand right wing Republicans,however, Pete king is correct in his views. While Jackson was a talented dancer and singer, he was also a deplorable human being in many ways. Why should King have to apologize for his opinions?

I am also tired of the media's constant attention on celebrity. If they paid half as much attention to the lunacy going on in D.C., then maybe we would have a chance of saving this country from the psycopathic behavior of congress, and this from someone who had hope, and voted for Obama.

I FEEL THAT PETER KING SHOULD NOT ONLY APOLOGIZE TO THE WHOLE JACKSON FAMILY ESPECIALLY TO MICHAEL, BUT HE SHOULD STICK HIS HEAD SO FAR UP HIS YOU KNOW WHAT!!!! HOW DARE YOU MR. KING....HOW DARE YOU SPEAK ILL OF THE DEAD. MICHAEL WAS A CARING, SENSITIVE, GIVING AND LOVING PERSON WHO GAVE THIS WORLD MUCH LOVE AND HAPPINESS WITH HIS MUSIC. GOD WILL PUNISH YOU FOR WHAT YOU SAID!!!. YOU SHOULD BE SO ASHAMED OF YOURSELF, BUT THEN AGAIN YOU WOULDN'T BE BECAUSE YOU ARE A LOWLIFE!!!! I LOVE YOU MICHAEL...R.I.P.

Thank you for writing so eloquently about this video. What this man said was improper, rude, and just plain wrong on all counts. I hope to be hearing a deafening chorus of calls for him to make an apology to the Jackson Family as well as to the rest of us whom he greatly offended. I hold all people to a high standard regarding how they treat others and regarding things like our basic rights. This man is a public servant and he dares to say such things with no care for who he hurts or what lies he perpetuates. Michael Jackson was found not guilty on all counts by a jury of his peers. I wonder if Pete King had been on trial for this and he had been exonerated would he not want to get on with HIS life and not be accused/tried/convicted/vilified in the court of public opinion forever regardless of his innocence? Certainly Mr. Jackson deserves no less than to be truthfully remembered in the proper light. I hope everyone who views that awful video will email this man and call for a retraction and SINCERE apology. What he stated was reprehensible. Our justice system should not be taken so lightly either especially by high profile elected officials. If he doesn't believe in our government and its due process perhaps he should quit elsewise he might be wont to do away with the whole troublesome matter of due process and just judge everyone himself for expediency. Also, I had no trouble finding ample coverage about our wonderful servicemen and servicewomen around the world.

What I would like to see is the GOP make a public statement denouncing the outrageous statements made by Rep. Pete King about Michael Jackson. Fan or not, right or wrong, it's indefensible for an elected official to behave and speak in this way and say the things he said while family, friends and fans of Michael Jackson is still in the grip of mourning. As far as I'm concerned his statement is about as irresponsible as mine's would be should I say, "He must have been confused and thought he was speaking in front of a burning cross at a Klan rally."

Thank you so much Congressman Bobby Rush, for speaking up on this. It amazes me that a public official would speak against an official (found innocent) ruling for his own springboard attempt at gaining office.

I was hurt as I am sure his family and fellow fans were.

WE'D LIKE AN APOLOGY!

I do believe that people, who don't have the ability to put themselves in other people shoes, give their opinion of what they would be doing in the same circumstance.

Shame on you Peter King!

LDG

PS. My love and support for our military is sovereign. I and my family thank them whole heartedly.

I agree with Mr. Rush such inflammatory and negative comments should not be made by an elected official. This places serious question on Mr. King's ability to make sound decisions. He should be impeached if he refuses to apologize and retract the statement.

Rush needs to get a life.

I agree. So tired of watching the NEWS media
fawn over the Jackson story...on and on and on.
Never in the 50's would our news channels be so
crazy, so willing to give up precious air time to a entertainer. I haven't had the TV on for 3 days, and I sure won't turn it on tomorrow.
To think our boys are fighting a war, in suits that cause dehydration, being SHOT AT by idiots, in a foreign country without family, and DYING, and our news media disrupts all good news for this wretched Jackson character. I AGREE with Congressman Jackson, and hope he will NOT apologize. Sharon

Is King up for re-election? Rep. King's rant is over the top and why is he using the troops again? there is a related post at http://iamsoannoyed.com/?page_id=588

It may be better that Mr. King speak as he has because we get a chance to see the people that thinks as he does. Is this the kind of person that the American People will continue to support ? I believe that Almighty GOD is watching us all in this critizal time in our world.

Ummmm,Hey Bobby,Then can you explain the almost 20 million he paid out to the 13yr old if he wasn't GUILTY of this? Hmmm,can you?well can you?I didn't thimk so.

rep King is out of line, out of his mind and out of wack

Michael Jackson's true fans know him, and know that he was a wonderful, generous man. I grew up knowing his music, and what he has done for people. I feel like I lost a friend, and I didn't know him personally, but he makes his fans feel like they do!! Rep. King will never have that same effect on people, I think he's jealous. Michael has a lot of followers.(voting followers). We shall see!! Even though, he will never be a man ever on the same level as Michael Jackson. He should stand up, and pay respects, APOLOGIZE, and then shut the hell up!!!

100% agree.

Mr King, do you think you are sinless before you open your mouth judging others?

Bravo to Rep Rush, Peter King is himself trying to jump on the bandwagon to grab some publicity. Along with MJ's fans all over the world, I hope your next campaign goes down the tube!

I am a fan of MJ not only because of his extreme talent but also because he came across to me as somebody who is truth to himself and do and say what he thinks. My compassion goes out to thsi very talented gifted star also becuase of what he has to live thru throughout his whole life.

May Michael rest in peace.

King, you should know about the basic social manner that no one should speak bad about a person who is no longer in this world. THINK MR KING.. HOW DOES YOUR FAMILY FEEL IF YOU DYE AND PEOPLE TALK BAD ABOUT YOU?...THINK

It's nice to see a politician that isn't afraid of being politically incorrect. What he said is true and we are all tired of the endless Michael Jackson saga on almost every channel. Why aren't you people that are putting Mr. King down equally indignant over all of the evil and untrue things being said about Sarah Palin. She values and respects life while Jackson admittedly slept with young boys. Or the pervert David Letterman saying that Sarah Palin's 14 year old daughter was knocked up at a ball game. I'm sure that if some comedian said that Obama took his girls to Disneyland and they were molested by a child predator, he/she would be crucified by the left wing media. Of course no person in their right mind would wish that any more than the disgusting statement by Letterman.

Myopic humans should reframe from public opinion.I think Kings is one of them. How did he ever get an elective office?

A Note to Congressman Peter King,

I read your remarks regarding the media coverage on Michael Jackson’s death, as well as your criticisms of his character.

I am only 28 years old, and I have seen this country (and the world) evolve into a media circus, where people are famous for just being famous and it is outrageous. That said, Michal Jackson is NOT one of those people. He worked from the bottom up, and will remain one of the greatest entertainers of all-time, a true icon, a true legend. His music and dancing made people around the world want to learn how to sing and dance, and he has inspired many of the artists we see and hear today.

Is there a lot of coverage? Yes there is…but rightly so. If it wasn’t covering his story, then we would be hearing about Jon & Kate Plus Eight or Twilight cast gossip. He deserves the spotlight right now. There are people overseas dying for our country, and I realize this. However, as an American citizen who stays fairly up to date with current affairs, I feel we are often not privy to the what is going on overseas. We do not celebrate the lives of the soldiers who have died for us over there the way we should be. I partially blame the Bush Administration for this. Casualties of War is not what his Administration wanted to show, but you cannot blame the media for not being able to show what they do not know. And you certainly cannot blame Michael Jackson for this either.
Michael Jackson DOES deserve the attention and the praise he getting now.

Your comment that he did some singing and dancing is a gross understatment. He is our Elvis, our John Lennon, let us celebrate his accomplishments! In the event you did not know what he accomplished during his 42 years in the industry, I have included a list of (some) his many achievements for you to review.
- Biggest Selling Album of All Time with Thriller
- His “The Making Of Thriller” is the best selling video ever sold by an artist
- Most Number 1 Hits in the 1980’s
- Most Number 1 Hits by a Male Artist on the Billboard “Hot 100″ Singles Chart
- First person in the history of the Billboard Chart to enter straight in at Number 1 with “You Are Not Alone”
- Has sold over 100 million singles inside and outside of the U.S.
- Biggest tour in History with the Bad Tour, which ran from 9/1987 to 12/1988
- Greatest Superbowl Audience during a half-time show

In my opinion, your remarks on him being a “low-life” and “pervert” were uncalled for. You further went on to say “Let’s knock out the psychobabble. He was a pervert, a child molester; he was a pedophile.” What absurd statement to make as an elected official! Aren’t you a Congressman? Don’t you believe in our justice system? This is the criminal justice system that never found him guilty of a single crime. You let some allegations, which he was never convicted of, overshadow his genius which is just plain shameful.

Outside of the arena of music his contribution to society at large has greatly impacted both those inside and outside of the United States. Have you forgotten about Ryan White, the posterboy for HIV. Michael Jackson was one of the first celebrities to step forward and raise awareness for Ryan White's case. He has supported various charities and causes around the world (note the strip/arm band he wore as a reminder to us all of the starving children in this world), and co-wrote “We Are The World” with Lionel Richie for U.S.A. for Africa (or “United Support of Artists for Africa”). Revenues made from this song raised approximately $63 million for famine relief in Africa. Michael Jackson also contributed to setting up the Heal The World Foundation. For your reference I have listed the charities he individually supported throughout his life in addition to the Heal The World Foundation.

The bottom line…Michael Jackson is one of the biggest stars the world has ever seen, if not the biggest. And yes, I would let my child or grandchild be in the same room with Michael Jackson. I would have been honored.
Please have some respect for Michael Jackson, his children, his family, and the fans around the world who are both grieving and celebrating the life of this fantastic man.

Sincerely,
A fan of music, humanity, and dignity (and of course a devote Michael Jackson fan...may he rest in peace)

Peter King, You do not deserve to hold a public office within this country. I hope and pray that the people of NY vote you OUT of office as soon as your term ends. Michael Jackson was found innocent of those charges by a court of law. Do YOU know what that is... But since in America we also have Civil Law Suits if you don't win your case and there is so much greed in America, and the lawyers wanted to make some money, that is why Michael paid money to end the mess. You are one stupid person.

Thank you for saying what needed to be said a long time ago. I'm glad this earth is finally rid of that filthy pervert. May he rot in hell. Those who are honoring him and crying about his death are just as sick as he was. It's truly a sad day when a child molesting, drug using pervert can get so much media glamorization.

Peter King is one of many right wing republicans that feel anything grand about black people is an insult to whites. I wonder how he feels about Woody Allen who is indeed a pedophile and molested all of Mia Farrows adopted little girls and eventually married the older. Mia wrote in her book that it was frequent that she would find Woody indecent with the adopted girls. Since Obama's election any racist takes the liberty to be as hateful and self serving as possible and the Blacks are not going to let them do this kind of thing and say nothing. The black vote and the black buying power is much needed and will not cater to politicians and or businesses that feel that insults on blacks are ok

Peter King should be sued for slander! Or at least run out of office. I never liked him before but now I'll never forgive him. He is the opposite of MJ--full of hate and loves to spread hate, suspicion and bigotry. Go away Peter King!!!

In America we are INNOCENT until PROVEN guilty. Rep King is a jerk for making these rude and insensitive remarks.

Just b/c somebody settles, that doesn't mean that one's guilty. Dumb piece of xxxxs.

Hey Grace and company, this isn't an issue of black vs. white, as you all make it out, but rather a case of a child molester. You all seem to have conveniently dismissed that he publicly acknowledged his perverted "fondness for sleeping with children (i.e. little boys)" and giving them "Jesus Juice". Also, legal transcripts prove that he was indeed a child molester that would be in prison. (How else can a child describe, of all things, Jackson's genetalia in detail?) Ironically, he'd be alive had he not been rich enough to pay off at least one child's family. What a role model! Congratulations King for getting this one right.

PETER KING IS THE VICTIM OF BEING IGNORANT TO THE IMPORTANCE OF MICHAEL JACKSON, AND I AM GLAD THAT MANY OF YOU POINTED OUT HOW MICHAEL JACKSON WAS A VERY IMPORTANT FIGURE IN AMERICAN HISTORY, ALSO SOME OF YOU POINTED OUT HOW MICHAEL JACKSON WAS A VERY IMPORTANT FIGURE TO THE ENTIRE WORLD!
PETER KING PUT HIS FOOT IN HIS MOUTH AND IT WON'T BE THE LAST TIME HE DOES IT, HE CAN FORGET ABOUT BEING A SENATOR IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK AS WELL!
MICHAEL JACKSON WAS NEVER CONVICTED OF A CRIME, HIS ONLY CRIME WAS BEING HONEST WITH AMERICA!
PETER KING CAN NEVER REMOVE THE GREATNESS OF MICHAEL JACKSON AND THE JACKSON FAMILY!

I am appalled that any public official would express his own personal opinion like this. As far as I am concerned, he should be voted out of office.He also should apologize and be sued for libel. The venom that he spewed was not only directed at Michael Jackson, he just happen to be the scapegoat. I can appreciate his being so vocal in his belief. Better to know then not know. Remember it was the pious men of the community that rode at night with sheets over their heads, terrorizing, lynching, tarring,burning,raping and murdering. God Bless Him because I know God will surely Deal with him. The Lord's words holds great understanding for me. "Vengenance Is Mine." So, I pray for people like Mr. King. It's been my experience when God deals with someone they usually can't withstand it. Hello!

Thank you so much for saying some of the things that needed to be said. I saw his rant and thought, "I wonder where he was when Elvis died? or John Lennon?" And then I wondered how incensed he was at the coverage given to Princess Dianah? Then I wondered if the fact that coverage of the Pope's death bothered him. Since some of these were not even citizens of the US, did he find that coverage overbearing? To him MJ was a man who was accused of a crime and though he was acquitted of all charges in a court of law in Mr.(?) King's mind, just as he was in many other's, he was found to be guilty. Does King know that MJ cried because he was forced to settle out of court rather than go through another trial? I am sure he does not. Better yet, I am sure he really doesn't care. He asked the question, 'Would you let your child be in the room with Michael Jackson?' My answer is not just yes, but HELL YES! Personally, I despised Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan but I gave them both the respect they deserved in their homegoing by not saying anything negative about either of them, merely because of their stature. I don't say that Michael Jackson was a perfect man. There has only been one of those to walk on earth and there have been questions raised about Him through the years and His name is spelled J-E-S-U-S. What Michael was, however, was an Icon to some, a father to his children, a son to his parents, a brother to his brothers and sisters, an uncle to nieces and nephews, etc., but most of all he was HOPE to many African American children in the 1970/80s. Yes, many of our children looked at that little kid and said if he can do it so can I. And a lot of them did. And they, PETER KING, deserved a little thing called R-E-S-P-E-C-T. In addition to Michael's many musical accomplishments, there is a tremendously long list of the many humanitarian, and beneficial, contributions that he made contributions to that you aren't even aware of mister congressman king. So, please, before you decide to become an attack dog and viciously attack another human being gather all the facts about them. Today, my adopted great-grandson looked at the TV and said, "I be like Mike Japsom." And you know what? Those words brought tears to my eyes. Mr.(?) King in your homegoing I hope noone mars the passing by interjecting negatives into what should be the time that your family and friends deserve to grieve your passing if they be so inclined to do so. Mr.(?) King you might see Michael Jackson as but a bush by the side of the road. We see him as the tree from which the root extended so the sun could kiss it and the rain drops encouraged it to start that bush. With the right nurturing and cultivation that bush just might be the most beautiful tree you've ever seen. Be careful how you cast those stones. They sometimes come back to you as boulders.

Pete King is an old hand at inserting himself into the limelight by feeding red meat to the bigots and a-holes who support him. Michael Jackson's death is just his latest attempt. Keep the focus on Michael and others who contribute something good to this world ,,, and the sooner we ignore the Peter King's, the sooner they become the tiny footnotes to history that was always their destiny.

I want some one to stand up to this King he made me sick and I have family in Iraq how dare him use them to make a sick political speech of hate.....ALL I CAN SAY IS MJ FANS WILL DEMAND UNTIL THEY GET WHAT THEY WANT...THIS KING DID NOT WANT TO HELP THE PEOPLE AFTER Katrina either IIRC sick very sick did he not think of the kids the 3 kids that have been left I am sad to say I live around some of these ignorant two faced politicians who have alot of dirty hands and want to dictate us and this is the kind of guy we want in any office I am glad I am in Indiana is all I have to say...and thanks to this Rep standing up to him. IT WAS SO UNCALLED FOR

thanks to the one that posted this to bad King did not do some homework before he opened him mouth....
THIS IS WORTH REPOSTING

MR KING WHAT YOU HAVE SAID IS ALMOST UNFORGIVABLE CAN'T IMAGINE WHY YOU WOULD DO THIS OTHER THAN THIS MUST BE WHO YOU REALLY ARE.YOU WILL NEVER OUT-LIVE THIS REPREHENSIBLE RANT IT WILL HAUNT YOU FOR THE REST OF YOUR HATE MONGERING LIFE.

Mr. King you need to APOLOGIZE to the Jackson Family and to Michael then you need to lock yourself in your room and have a talk with GOD

Just because the man was a pedophile doesn't mean he shouldn't have our respect. After all, the man is dead!

it is rather unfortunate to see King who represent so many people to be talking this way.
I am an African and there is nothing new in adult sleeping with kids on the same bed.(millions of family share just 1 room so adult have to sleep on the same mat as children) infact i think King need to travel around the world to see how people live instead of running his mouth for political gain. This man needs to be investigated as i am sure he has something hidden in his closet.

o.k., jackson gave a lot of money to causes. cool. m j could sing and dance. fine. maybe we should put him on mt. rushmore...the carve it up a little every other year.
gosh, how hungry the bro's are for 'leaders'...you had a couple of rev.'s (from god knows what div school, a former basketball player who got aids from a hooker,a congresswoman who slugged a capitol hill cop on the way to work and a very pregnant un-wed diva. lol....change? where it at?

Peter, skipped the Vietnam war, he is known to support and be part of Irish Terrorist groups, where the hell does he get off insulting Michael that way. He basically invalidates what we the people decided, that Michael was once again being extorted for money, and that he was innocent of all accusations.

It became obvious to the Jackson family that paying people to just go away and avoid bad publicity does not work. If my child had been molested I would not have accepted money to make up for it. I would have taken it to the highest court to get the molester punished, accepting money made it obvious that that is all that family wanted from michael.

So, in TODAY'S America, a United States Congressman "Does Not" have Freedom of Speech?
Are you people Crazy?, or Do You Only Support The Constitution WHEN it Comes to YOUR Freedom of Speech?
LIBERALISM IS A MENTAL DISEASE All Right.

Rep. King definitely owes an apology for his comment about Michael Jackson! Three juries found Jackson innocent of King's accusation; nevertheless King persists in apparently believing he knows more and convicting Jackson--indicative of an evil & unjust mind on King's part. According to court-appointed psychiatrists, Jackson was emotionally regressed or retarded to age 13 in that one area of his psyche. The same psychiatrists found no signs of any perversion in Jackson. And in view of Jackson's mistreatment by his father during his formative growing-up years it would be surprising if he were entirely unscathed, and it's to Jackson's credit that he grew into the gentle, kind-hearted man that he was. Rep. King needs to get his mind washed and apologize for his totally unjust comment. It surprises me that King's constituents voted someone like him into office.

Representative Peter King doesn't understand the PeterPan/Pied Piper big heart Michael Jackson apparently had for disadvantaged children worldwide. A timely statement was made by
al Sharpton at the public memorial service when he said publicly to MJ's children: " There was nothing strange about your father. It was strange what your father had to deal with."

History will remember Al's words as passionately as the "I have A Dream "sermon by Another famous African American Pastor; or the "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country" speech by JFK.

MAYBE YOU SHOULD JUST GIVE MR. MICHAEL JACKSON HIS DUE RESPECT AND LEAVE IT ALONE!
THE MAN IS IN THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME, TWICE, ONCE WITH HIS BROTHERS- THE JACKSON FIVE AND AS A SOLO ARTIST!
HE IS IN THE RECORD BOOKS FOR HIS PHILANTHROPY!
HE WAS NEVER CONVICTED OF ANY CRIMES HIS ENTIRE LIFE!
HE SOLD 750,000,000 ALBUMS WORLDWIDE!
THEY SAY THAT LOS ANGELES RECEIVED AN INFLUX OF
FIVE MILLION DOLLARS BECAUSE OF AN INCREASE IN
HOTELS AND RESTAURANTS FOR HIS MEMORIAL SERVICE!
A YOUNG BLACK BOY FROM GARY INDIANA DID ALL OF THIS AND SOME OF YOU WONDER WHY HE IS LOVED SO MUCH, MANY SEE MICHAEL IN THEMSELVES, HARDWORK DOES PAY OFF, AND MICHAEL IS LIVING PROOF, HE WILL LIVE ON IN HIS MUSIC AND HIS CHARACTER, HE WAS GREAT AND THAT IS THE BOTTOM LINE, HE DOESN'T NEED HIS FACE ON MT. RUSHMORE, HE SHOULD BE
REMEMBERED AS SOMEONE WHO GAVE A DARN ABOUT HIS FELLOW MAN AND HE WAS A GREAT FATHER!
DON'T PUT YOUR FOOT IN YOUR MOUTH LIKE PETER KING DID, IT'S A SHAME A MAN LIKE THIS REPRESENTS PEOPLE IN A STATE AND HE DOESN'T KNOW ABOUT ONE OF AMERICA'S GREATEST ENTERTAINERS, HE SHOULD HAVE READ ABOUT HIM BEFORE HE PUT HIS FOOT IN HIS MOUTH, READING IS FUNDAMENTAL!

Peter King? Who?! - "Man In The Mirror" should be your theme song for life.

SUPERLATIVE!!

Tip the brim of your fedora while strolling into the pearly gates of Heaven my brotha!

Job well done while here on earth!

R.I.P. Michael!

Rep. Rush is a jerk. Rep. King had the guts to say what so many of us are thinking. Michael Jackson may have been great at one time, but he fell from grace a long time ago. How one person could have achieved such success only to become one of the wackiest sorry excuses for a human being, that is a real trajedy. Michae Jackson should not be revered. Even if he happens to be innocent, how freakin' dumb must he have been to even be in a position to get accused a second time? And here the media is worshipping his memory? I mean, how many times do we need to hear the daughter's little speech on the news?

ok i can explain why the 20 million was paid out if ppl were paying attention it was his insurance at the time that paid it why do you think jackson aint with them no more and 2. the 1st accused has spoken his dad made him say it cus his dad wanted to get back at jackson for not looking over his work that he asked jackson to look over wow goes to show ppl really dont pay attention on any coverage ENEWS NOW had some of the kids that were staying the nights at michaels back then ON THEIR TELECASTING havent you ppl heard them yet guess not well the kid from home alone has spoken on it so has the 2 guys from the show called THE 2 COREYS . WAKE UP PPL. AND TO PETER KING ITS TIME TO APOLIGIZY TO THE JACKSON FAMILY TO HIS FANS AND MOST OF ALL TO HIS CHILDREN I CAN GAURANTEE THEY HEARD WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT THEIR FATHER. AND AGAIN PETER WHAT? U SAYING YOU NEVER SLEPT IN YOUR BED WITH YOUR KIDS PLEASE IF YOU SAY YOU DIDNT THEN HERES WHAT I HAVE TO SAY TO YOU WHATS THAT COMING THREW YOUR TEETH ? A LIE MUST BE . GAURANTEE THAT U HAVE SLEPT WITH YOUR KIDS OR YOUR GRAND KIDS IN YOUR BED GUESS THAT MAKES YOU A CHILD MOLESTER/ PEDOPHILE OH AND BY THE WAY PETER KING PEDO AND CHILD MOLESTER ARE THE SAMETHING . IM SORRY HAD TO TELL YOU THE NEWS ON THAT . ALSO KING GOES TO SHOW YOU DONT LIKE KIDS CUS IF YOU DID THEN DONT YOU THINK HIS OWN KIDS WOULD HEAR WHAT U SAID ABOUT THEIR DAD? IM SURE THAT IF YOU WERE IN THE SAME BOAT U WOULD HOPE THAT WHAT YOU SAID WOULDNT GET BACK TO YOUR KIDS . YOU HEARTLESS SOUL GOD WILL JUDGE U .

We are living in a very complicated society. You'd think that Americans would begin to come together and support one another...making this country stronger, but instead, we're dividing and conquering. I can't imagine what other countries are thinking about us. While we are bickering with one another, our enemies will probably one of these days take advantage of this situation. Whether you realize it or not we serve a great God who is truly colorblind and I believe he's really angry with America because of our character. We all owe a greater apology to God all mighty. He's waiting for us to repent. And when we do so, he will restore our land. If we don't acknowledge God, continue to look forward to more serious bickering as well as futher moral, physical and economic damage to this country.

MICHAEL JACKSON BUILT NEVERLAND SO SICK AND HEALTHY YOUNGSTERS COULD COME ON THAT RANCH AND YOU KNOW THAT, MICHAEL JACKSON SAID HE DIDN'T HAVE A CHILDHOOD, SO HE WAS PETER PAN, THAT IS MICHAEL JACKSON'S BUSINESS, NOW ALL THOSE YOUNGSTERS THAT VISITED THAT RANCH, AND ONE OR TWO WANT TO SUE HIM, YOU DON'T SEE THAT AS FISHY, THE POLICE KNEW THEY DIDN'T HAVE MUCH OF A CASE, AND THEY CALLED HIS EX-WIFE TO WITNESS AGAINST HIM AND THAT FAILED AS WELL, BECAUSE SHE SAID HE WAS A GREAT FATHER AND HE WOULDN'T HURT ANY YOUNGSTERS, THE MAN WAS INNOCENT, THE ONLY THING LIKE I SAID BEFORE HE WAS GUILTY OF, WAS BEING TO HONEST WITH AMERICA, MICHAEL JACKSON WAS NOT GUILTY OF HARMING ANY CHILDREN, BUT I NOW UNDERSTAND WHAT HE ENDURED HIS ENTIRE LIFE, JUST BY READING THE NEWS, EVEN IN DEATH HE IS PERSECUTED FOR SOMETHING HE WAS FOUND INNOCENT OF, DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE, LONG LIVE MICHAEL JACKSON AND I HOPE SOME OF YOU LEARN TO READ!

I would like to say that Yes we all know that Michael paid out millions of dollars on his first child molestation charges. However, that does not make him guilty. The family of this boy pressed CIVIL charges against Michael Jackson.. NOT CRIMINAL. It is clear right there that their ONLY intent was to gain some money. For all you who are tired of seeing the media coverage of Michael Jackson....GET OVER IT! DONT WATCH TV THEN! Seriously think about it...Name an entertainer in the last 30 years that has been bigger than MJ. He was/is the most talented entertainer EVER. The media overplays everything. But I'd much rather hear about Michael Jackson then what celebrity is getting divorced or cheating on their spouse. Peter King and all you Michael Jackson haters need to realize that MJ donated more money to charity than Peter King will earn his whole lifetime. How much money has Peter King donated to charity? Does any common person in Romania even know who Peter King is? I bet not. Michael Jackson had fans/supporters WORLDWIDE. He touched the lives of HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS! If congressmen of the United States of America are not going to follow the U.S. CONSTITUTION, "INNOCENT until PROVEN GULTY" then what does that say about our COUNTRY???? You get that? PROVEN GUILTY, Not ASSUMED GUILTY! What is the point of the constitution being written if we as AMERICANS are not going to follow it?

Michael Jackson was dead when the cable and news channels carried this non-stop coverage. So we really can't blame him. Even those who liked MJ did not understand why so much coverage. These news people only do what is in their best interest as far as money goes. They also want to know every detail about Jackson so they can get some of his money. Nancy Grace and Rep King and O'Reilly are the same, they don't give a s*** about MJ or his children, just so long as they can ride his back for their own benefit. If the money potential was not so great he would not have been so interesting.

My guess is that they (news shows and stalkers) will hound MJ's children until they move to Saudi Arabia.

Salutation and thanks to both Kris & Grace. A job well done. As you can see, Peter King (and those who share his views beyond the statement), choose to be stupid human beings. Ignorance is when a person speaks or acts because they know no better. Fools know better, but act contrarily because they're self absorbed, and believe that only truth comes out when they speak; albeit foolishly. The first accuser's father only talked about "how much money he should be paid," and showed little, if any grief over his son's "alleged molestation." The second case proved that the "alleged victim's" mother was a lying opportunist, with a history of scamming with the intent of landing a large payday. Both these children's parents should spend long stretches behind bars for not only extortion, but an additional 20-30 years EACH, for using their children as pawns in their vile endeavours! Peter King, you are a mega-psycho and deserved to be forced to resign! Want to talk about victims? How about that senseless war in Iraq you voted for under the lying banner of "fighting terrorism?" To date over 300,000 Iraqis are dead (the vast majority of whom are innocent civilians), and 4,800 of our troops, needlessly! Why haven't you expressed outrage at Mark Sanford, Ted Haggard, Ensign, and those other proven and admitted slimebuckets? Party of family values? Not! Christian Right? Nothing Christian about it! GOP should stand for "Gaunlet of Pigs!" When your closet is unlocked and exposed, all I have to say to the MSM is, "GO GET 'IM! I would suggest you take a look in the mirror, but it would probably just crack into pieces. Back to the private sector with you!

Rep. King has a right to state his opinion about the extent of the coverage about Michael Jackson and what he thinks of Michael Jackson's moral character. Also, people going on about Michael Jackson "being found innocent" don't understand how are legal system works. He was NOT found factually innocent (that is something a judge CAN do as part of a criminal proceeding or subsequent to one, but it was NOT done for Michael Jackson). He was acquitted. Being acquitted means, and ONLY means, a jury did not believe the prosecution met the very high burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Aquittal does NOT and has NEVER meant someone has been "found innocent." In fact, there are several cases in which juries admit they believed an accused party was guilty of the crimes charged, but voted for acquittal because they either did not feel the prosecution did its job of meeting its burden of proof or because they believed there was some sort of police or prosecutorial misconduct. As for my opinion, I appreciate Michael Jackson was very talented and contributed greatly to contemporary music, and I say good for him with that. However, as an individual he exhibited terrible judgment and made some choices which I cannot and will not excuse or condone, ever. He is dead, and the world should move on.

THE GREAT THING ABOUT ALL OF THIS IS THAT MICHAEL JACKSON ISN'T BEING BURIED AT BURR OAK CEMETERY, I HOPE THOSE FOUR INDIVIDUALS WHO ROBBED GRAVES AND STOLE MONEY AND COMMITTED CLASS X FELONIES, GO TO THE BIGHOUSE FOR A LONG TIME!
DON'T FORGET THE MEMORIAL FOR MICHAEL JACKSON, FRIDAY NIGHT IN GARY, INDIANA AT US. STEEL FIELD!
NEVER FORGET 2300 JACKSON STREET, WHERE IT ALL
BEGAN!

As a parent I will attest to the fact that no amount of money would
prevent me from seeking criminal justice if my child were molested.
Period. Thus, I believe the father of the first boy lied and forced
his son to lie also. Regarding the second accusation of molestation,
Michael Jackson was acquitted of all charges in a court of law. Has
it occurred to this loudmouthed, self-righteous, judgmental civil
service fool to keep his personal opinions to himself? He is free to
espouse his slander in his own home, most likely the same home where
he hangs his sheets in the closet! I think the Jackson family should
sue this hater in court for his hateful, vile and slanderous comments.
PS: Perhaps Mr. King's energy would be better spent trying to bring down NAMBLA, if he truly cares about the victims of child molestation!

THAT'S WHY MICHAEL JACKSON NEVER GOT A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP, HE WAS ALWAY PERSECUTED, THE MAN HAD LUPUS, AND VITALIGO, HE COULDN'T GO ANYWHERE, HE WAS CONSTANTLY VIEWED AS DIFFERENT, CONSTANTLY VILLIFIED, BUT ALWAYS CONSIDERED A GREAT ENTERTAINER, BUT SINCE HE HAD PLASTIC SURGERY, AND HIS COLOR CHANGED, HE WAS LOOKED ON AS A FREAK A STRANGE PERSON, THE MAN WAS SICK, BUT HE CONTINUED TO ENTERTAIN, HE WAS LIED ON, BUT CONTINUED TO ENTERTAIN, HIS MONEY TAKEN ON FALSE ALLEGATIONS, BUT HE DIDN'T WANT LONG JURY TRIAL, HE COULDN'T TAKE IT, WHO COULD HAVE, MICHAEL THEY TALK ABOUT YOU MORE DEAD, THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE,
TO THE KING OF POP, THANK YOU FOR THE MUSIC, THANK YOU FOR THE DOORS YOU OPENED FOR MANY, I HAD NO IDEA OF THE PAIN YOU WERE SUFFERING WHILE ALIVE, BUT I DO NOW, REST IN PEACE, GARY PUT ON A SHOW FOR YOU LAST NIGHT, REST IN PEACE, AND TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO TOOK ADVANTAGE OF MICHAEL, SHAME ON YOU, WHAT GOES AROUND COMES BACK AROUND!
JUST LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDER, HONEY!

i am absolutely Disgusted with my king.....
michael jackson was acquitted WHICH MEANS INNOCENT... IT IS A FACT...and if i were part of the jackson family i would sue your damn ass. how rude you are being to michael and his poor family who are grieving for there son/brother/father..and all you can do is slander him more even through he is no longer on this earth.......people want to hear news about michael, he is and always will be a legend......what a Horrible nasty person you are.....so get a grip and find something better to talk about...

United States Congressman Pete King
339 Cannon House Office Building • Washington, DC 20515

Congressman King,

I am sure Michael Jackson would have agreed that the media circus focused upon the sensationalism of his death is not nearly as important as the U.S. soldiers who have risked their lives. I do not want to say to protect our country, because it appears to me that soldiers have been illegally ordered to be an offensive force, not by choice, but because of votes by Congressmen such as you.

Mr. Jackson would have agreed with you about too much sensationalism when there are others needlessly suffering in the world. Had he been alive, he most certainly would have asked his fans to help those in need. He was that kind of human being who put
others before himself, always. During his most troubled personal times, when the cards were stacked up against him because of false accusations and never ending legal battles against scumbags who sought to get at his wealth, he never lost his philanthropic and humanitarian spirit. Michael Jackson is well known to have supported the soldiers who have risked their lives, doing his best to comfort many.

Under the Constitution, people are to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. Mr. Michael Jackson was proven innocent in a court of law, yet you cast stones publicly to frame Michael Jackson as a "pervert" and a "lowlife" to advance your hollow agenda. I say hollow because you have not only violated the Constitution as a United States Congressman proclaiming guilt upon Mr. Jackson as if you are the judge and jury, but you are guilty of violating the Constitution for voting to give President Bush the authority to invade a sovereign nation, Iraq, that was no threat whatsoever to the United States. I hereby challenge your supposed support of the soldiers as I judge your votes.

You voted, unconstitutionally, to allow a preemptive aggressive war in which not only 1000's of American soldiers have died for lies, corporate greed and the theft of resources, but hundreds of thousands of soldiers and civilians have been permanently maimed and many more will suffer mental anguish forever. That is not to mention the million plus Iraqi civilians who died as a result of votes like yours. That is not to mention the Patriot Act, The Military Commissions Act and all of the other unconstitutional acts and spending you engage in with your votes. You sir, are a pervert of the Constitution and are the ultimate lowlife.

The fact that you still have the video of your tirade against Mr. Jackson posted on your Congressional homepage during his memorial service, without offering an apology is sickening to me.

Mr. Jackson happened to be one of the greatest humanitarians of all time, even after his death. He gave more to the world and to those in need than perhaps any other individual I can think of off the top of my head. Much more than anything you would ever be capable of doing.

Under the Constitution, you have proven yourself to be a domestic enemy of the United States. I may be way out in California, but I will be using my voice to see that perverts of the Constitution and lowlifes like you who undermine and circumvent the Constitution be banned from office by way of the ballot box.

I, AM WHITE AS WHITE CAN BE, AND I SAY, THAT THIS MAN WILL STAND BEFORE GOD AND BE JUDGED FOR HOW HE JUDGES AND WORSE. READ YOUR BIBLE BABY..MAYBE YOU WILL GET LEPROSY LIKE MOSE'S SISTER MIRIAM. MICHAEL JACKSON, DIED BECAUSE OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND FALSE ACCUSATIONS. HIS IMMUNE SYSTEM AND HEART FAILED DUE TO HIS PLEASING AND LOVING HEART...ACCUSERS LIKE YOU BROKE. I DO NOT CARE IF YOU APOLOGIZE AS.I AM NOT GOD..AND FOR THAT MATTER A YOU ARE A SPECK OF DUST. THE CHILDREN AS...HE LEFT..ARE INNOCENT AND ARE NOW GOING TO BE VICTIMIZED BY A VERBAL ABUSER SUCH AS YOURSELF. VERBAL ABUSER, ACCUSER AND A SINNER. I SAY, YOU NEED SOME PRAYER AND ON YOUR BENDED KNEE AND IF YOU CAN'T...GUILTY!! RESIGN, IS WHAT WE CALL FOR!!! AS YOU ARE NOT A LEADER BUT... AN ABUSIVE MAN WITH NO HEART AND MAYBE WITHOUT A SOUL. BY THE WAY... I, AM A CHRISTIAN...BORN AGAIN...DO YOU PICK ON US TOO? MICHAEL, IS SAFELY HOME IN HEAVEN...WITH JESUS..

President Obama, I ask you have this man removed from office, as he has verbally abused his position and innocent children. I do not want this type of person speaking for America.

Bobbie Rush, The Former Street Thug, needs to apologize for being the DUMBEST Congressman in the Entire History of the USA going all the way back to 1789.

Bobbie Rush is the most stupid, idiotic jerk ever to serve in Congress. We need change, we need a change from "Bobbie The Jerk Rush" Bobbie is the only Congressman to ever Fail His IQ Test.

Michael Jackson was a genius man. he is only one of his type. King should go to hell. i would love to sell very thing of mine to sponsor to telecast Michael over and over.

I think that at this time of sorrow for the Jackson family people should be considerate of what they say about Michael Jackson. This representative should be ashamed for saying such stupidities about Mr. Jackson. Doesn't he know that Michael Jackson was acquitted of all charges? As a representative he should know that in this country you are innocent until proven guilty and in my eyes Michael Jackson is innocent of the charges that he was accused of because a jury of his peers found him not guilty. Yes, I do think AND HOPE that the Jackson family sues this representative for defamation of character. This should help Mr. King learn to keep his mouth to himself. Oh, and for those of you that still believe that Michael Jackson was guilty of those molestation charges, well you people were not there when these things supposedley happened, so how do you know that those allegations are true? You should question why a parent in his or her right mind would prefer to get millions of dollars in exchange for allowing his child's supposed molester to go unpunished. What type of parent is that?

Peter King should read the FBI Files they PROVE that Michael was/is INNOCENT and he was extorted for his money by them liars look at Evan Chandler he couldn't take it because he knew he lied and shot himself in the head.because he couldn't take the fact that he didn't clear Michael's name while he was alive and killed himself, and don't worry cause everybody that wronged Michael are dropping like flies Martin Bishure has a brain tumor, remember God don't like ugly, and maybe Michael believed in forgiveness but obviously God don't forgive that easily and Peter King's and Diane DEMON Diamond and others will get theirs in due time. Michael was/is always INNOCENT and that's the only way that these a**holes know how to make money off of their lies well we don't have to believe in a word that any one of them say we could all boycott all of their shows and their newspapers and when they come on T.V. switch the channel and don't listen to their lies, that's all they are is out and out lies that killed our Angel,
and God didn't like the way he was being treated on earth so he took him home and look even his death didn't stop us from researching and learning more about the man himself, HE'S AN ANGEL.
