Reading this NG as an occasional lurker,the one thing I’ve noticed is how
heated the debate gets here.
Jackson certainly illicits some strong opinions:both intense loyalty and
intense hatred..One things for sure:each side isn’t going to convince the
other any time soon.
So my question is:why does MJ evoke such a strong reaction in people?Why
does he fascinate even those who dislike him? I’m somewhere inbetween -not
a rabid fan but I like his music in small doses,but find myself here every
so often when he’s really done something out there.Last time I was here when
the Bashir program was released.
What is it about Michael Jackson?I know part of it is his,er
eccentricity-but Howard Hughes was a nut job and few people go to the net to
read up on him. Love him or hate him. he’s an interesting guy.
Your thoughts on this(both fans and knockers) would be appreciated.

Uhhhh, b/c he has supposedly commited on of the worst crimes, outside
of taking someone’s life, that one can.
Obviously, no one here was there, nor has seen the evidence with their
own eyes, but that doesnt mean one cant form their own opinion.
My take is he is guilty as sin… of which I can honestly say I wish
wasnt the case…. b/c if he is indeed guilty, that means those kids
were actually abused.
I’ll also admit that there is also a decent amount in me that is just
utterly confused as to why the other side of the fence just absolutely
refuse to even ackowledge the possibility that there could be some
truth to the allegations. I mean, if my fav celeb was in the same
boat, I wouldn’t like it, I wouldn’t want it to be true, etc etc…
but as a man of reason (at least I consider myself to be), as much as
I didnt like it, I would at least have to ackowledge that whatever it
was, could possibly be true (afterall, as part of the general
population, we arent privy to the juicy details). Yet some of these
MJ aplogists will deny each & every claim as false, meritless, and
shooting for money….

We now live in a culture where some fans of various celebrities are as
brainwashed and as fanatical as members of religious cults. How many times
have we seen footage of hysterical fans screaming and even fainting at a
public appearance of there favorite entertainer? The fans who will defend MJ
no matter what are simply poor,weak minded morons who have no lives of their
own and therefore project onto the lives of the famous.
The work of singers, actors and other artists does have value. They are
no better as human beings on average than people in other professions. They
are certainly not worthy of worship. The word fan itself is a shortened
version of “fanatic”.
To the rabid defenders of MJ I would ask this. What if the average
effeminate 40+ year old guy with a regular job in your neighborhood had his
face mutilated? Then what would you think if he started inviting same s**
children over for “charming and innocent” sleepovers? At the least a man
like that would soon face court ordered psychotherapy and would probably
have been jailed as a pedophile after the first or second sleepover. What if
that same man began to pay women to produce children for him? Began to wear
surgical masks and gloves in public? Began taking his kids out masked?
Social services would be there in a heartbeat to investigate. It is only
because of MJ’s money and celebrity that he has managed to avoid being
locked up as a molester. No jury would hesitate to lock up an average man
who exhibited the same pattern of behavior around children.
MJ is a sad and deluded idiot. He has every right in the world to live
like a freak. He has the right to mutilate himself with plastic surgery if
he wants. He has the right to live in a bizarre dream world. He does not
have the right to bring children into that world. Any rational person who
lives such a strange life would stay as far away from kids as possible to
avoid the appearance of impropriety.
MJ’s behavior around male children fits the classic definitions of a
pedophile. He dug his own grave and I have no pity on him. If found guilty
by a jury of citizens he should be locked up for the rest of his natural
life. He only deserves equl treatment under the law and no special treatment
because of musical talent.
