Congressman Pete King: “Worship the State, Not Michael Jackson”Tuesday, July 7, 2009
King is pissed that a “lowlife named Michael Jackson” is all over the media. This snippet shows King to be an incoherent gasbag, almost reminding me of Barney Frank. He misuses terms, here, and he publicly accuses Jackson of one crime after another. He calls Jackson a pedophile, pervert, and child molester, and then he refers to the media attention as “psychobabble” (misused term #1). He then refers to the adulation of Jackson as being “politically correct” (misused term #2).
He proceeds to say that we should be “glorifying” (his word) people who “sacrifice” for this country: the troops fighting wars, teachers, firemen, police, AIDS volunteers, and teachers that “work in rough neighborhoods.” All government workers, of course. This is the way things typically are, and that is the politically correct line. The lionization of Michael Jackson is streaming across the headlines, taking attention away from the government and its incessant propaganda in dire economic times, and it is making these establishment guys furious.
