The day before the Michael Jackson funeral,MSNBC's "Hardball" ran a segment
showing New York Congressman Peter King trying to
win favor with his constituents by making inflammatory comments like calling Michael Jackson "a pedophile" amongst other tacky and racist remarks.
Pat Buchanan was asked to react and I'm pleased that Mr. Buchanan was critical of CongressmanKing. He did not think
Peter King acted appropriately. Furthermore, Mr. Buchanan
quoted the late Senator Thomas Hart Benton on the subject of criticizing the deceased,
"When God Almighty lays his hand upon a man ... I take mine off, "
We live in a society where so many people are disconnected from wealth, power, & prestige. This is especially true with African Americans.
Like Jackie Robinson, Michael Jackson courageously crashed through the color line. He crashed through so splendidly & given the fact that his formative years were filled with chaos & abuse, the MJ story is one of history's GREATEST underdog legends and he is a hero to millions.
When you combine his astonishing musical talent and billboard success with the aforementioned sociological forces, it is no matter of mystery that this is a huge media event. The negative personality traits
of Jackson also fuel the overall publicity.
Pat Buchanan, a pundit for the right, is correct to correct the conduct of this right wing King Congressman, who is absolutely WRONG.
It is super lame and weak to try to use this
unfortunate event to win political favor. King should be ashamed and run out of office. It is predicted by this blogger that Peter King's vulgar publicity stunt will backFireBigTime .
Like many Kings before him, this King shall soon fall.....
