    Default Guess I was right again

    I remember back a few years ago we were talking about Michael Jackson in a thread here and I said that he was a child-molester. Most everyone jumped to his defense. Of course the whole world knew he was a child-molester, but just didn't want to admit it.
    Guess I was right again. Go figure.

    a few weeks ago also his father admired he used to beat Michael.

    I knew it all along, how could anyone miss it? he moved out of his parents home and the bruising disappeared.

    Sorry Frags, but that is downplaying it. He wasn't a child himself. He was a lazy, sick, abusing adult who was abused himself and so used it as an excuse to abuse others. There is no downplaying that. He was an evil scumbag.

    I would be surprised if they were. If anything, the vast opinion was that he should go to jail. There were all sorts of stories about MJ such as skin bleaching when he suffered from a condition related to melanin.

    Some of the myth busting is here.

    Sorry, but this one is more recent. ie: His death.

    The search function only works to 2007 as well, nothing popped up there about Michael Jackson or the legions defending him.

    Yeah, I have zero memory of "Most everyone jumped to his defense." Closest it came was the usual "save the slamming until he's in the ground," which we do for everyone.

    Better thread title: "Guess I was hallucinating again."

    Hey, this thread is not about "many", it's about Vuk being right, please stay on topic.

    Michael Jackson is overrated anyway IMO.

    Yes, but it is about Vulk being right, again, which implies more than once, and we are just trying to verify a single instance.

    The 27 club is reserved for talented artists, Bieber is just a huge d-bag. Hence he will probably live forever.

    I wouldn't know I got no tv here, I don't even know a song of him I sometimes read something. But it's bound to not end up very well.

    It's a pity, really. Bieber, while incredibly annoying, seemed like a nice kid before he turned into a sterotypical frat-boy.

    I have no opinion on Justin Beiber himself, the universal internet tendency to turn every conversation into a Beiber slagfest is rather tedious though.

    Shame on you people, I thought the org more refined than that.

    He wasn't molesting them. He was Making Love.

    The doctor on trial should have said he was trying to protect the children. Or use the defense that it wasn't an OD, it was food poisoning brought on by a 12 year old weiner

    I seem to remember saying that I thought it was more likely Jackson was actually underdeveloped sexually and there was a good chance nothing actually happened. It's possible I was wrong - and Article in the Daily Mail is hardly convincing, though.

    Still - there do seem to be a bloody well disturbing number of entertainers molesting children. possibly more children's entertainers and pop stars than priests.

    I don't think he is able to tell anyone anything, he struggles to even know how to breath, even with trying to use his mouth.

    I don't think he did it.

    I think once everyone realized how easy it was to extort him, people flocked.

    Congrats Vuk, you cracked the case.
    In all these papers we see a love of honest work, an aversion to shams, a caution in the enunciation of conclusions, a distrust of rash generalizations and speculations based on uncertain premises. He was never anxious to add one more guess on doubtful matters in the hope of hitting the truth, or what might pass as such for a time, but was always ready to take infinite pains in the most careful testing of every theory. With these qualities was united a modesty which forbade the pushing of his own claims and desired no reputation except the unsought tribute of competent judges.

    Well... My impression, which admittedly is just collected from various trials in the news, is that many(perhaps most?) child abusers actually don't have "sex" as we usually define it. It seems to be more about weird, weird stuff like inappropriate touching etc. In Jacko's case, I can certainly see how he'd get his fix simply spooning with them without needing to do anything more.

    Take the "pocket man", for example, an infamous Norwegian pedophile. What he did was travel around the country tricking boys into putting their hands into his pocket. The inside of the ocket was removed, thus resulting in a brief touching of his penis. Weird, weird stuff I can't even begin to understand. Still, I'd be perfectly happy classing such behaviour, even though it's very far from sex, as child abuse. The same goes for Jacko IMO.

    As for Bieber: he swimming in more ladyparts than any of us could even begin to imagine, and yes, that includes MRD on a weekend trip to Thailand. He is the ultimate alpha male.

    That's just something you have to tell yourself in order to cope with the fact that he got more by the age of 17, than you will in your entire lifetime.
