Only in Texas could Ted Nugent be an attorney general’s friend

The Texas Attorney General and The Nuge.

Rocker Ted Nugent and Attorney General Greg Abbott, the presumed GOP nominee for governor, praised each other as fighters for freedom at a Tuesday campaign event…

Nugent called Abbott “the epitome of what our founding fathers wanted as a representative of ‘we the people,’” and said Abbott has an understanding of individual rights and has fought “the enemies of these freedoms.” He introduced Abbott as “my friend” and “my blood brother.”

Abbott called Nugent “a fighter for freedom in this country.”

What a strange pair. Sure they’re both right-wing narcissists with designs to conquer the world. They both have their eyes on the White House, unlikely as that destination seems for either one. In those ways they’re much alike.

But it’s not from ambitions we draw any contrast here. What makes them an odd couple is the difference between what they appear to be. The Texas Attorney General is a pillar of law enforcement and Ted Nugent is a miscreant.

Here’s Abbott on Abbott, from his website:

A husband and father, Greg Abbott understands the importance of preserving Constitutional, traditional values – like faith, family and freedom for future generations. That’s why as the state’s chief law enforcement official, Abbott has made protecting children, families and values the focus of his administration.

Shortly after taking office, Attorney General Abbott established a Cyber Crimes Unit to arrest criminals who use the Internet to prey upon children; a Fugitive Unit to arrest convicted sex offenders who violate their parole; and an expanded Medicaid Fraud Control Unit to crack down on elder abuse and waste of taxpayer dollars. Since taking office, General Abbott has collected more than $28 billion in child support for Texas children.

Here he sings his own praises in a 2010 campaign ad:

“He’s arrested more criminals than any Texas attorney general, including thousands of child predators and sex offenders…”

Now here is Greg’s good buddy, Ted Nugent:

He lambastes drug users and alcohol drinkers, but repeatedly admits (without a trace of humility, however) to being a serial pedophile.

In 1978

Seventeen-year-old Hawaii native Pele Massa was too young to marry Nugent. So Nugent made an agreement with the girl’s parents to become her legal guardian. This was rated #63 on Spin magazine’s “100 Sleaziest Moments in Rock” list.

Legally sanctioned pedophilia. Is that a pillar of conservatism? Also:

Courtney Love phoned into the Howard Stern Show on Monday before eventually coming into the studio where she made the shocking allegation that one of the first times she had oral sex was with Ted Nugent. She said she was young and she didn’t want to say exactly how old she was, but eventually confessed she was 12-year-old — which would have made Nugent approximately 28 years old at the time.

If Nugent weren’t Abbott’s sixty-something pal he might have ended up in a 30-second ad for the AG. And Greg Abbott stopped a child molester’s scheme to take legal possession of a minor. Presumably this would only happen after Abbott found the time to make such a pitch, in between campaign stops with a hippie criminal.

More via Abbott’s website:

Attorney General Greg Abbott has set a record for the most child support collected by any state in history.

Since Abbott took office as attorney general in 2002, he has collected more than $27 billion through his office’s Child Support Division.

“Efficient, effective child support collections help ensure that young Texans have the resources they need to grow healthy and strong. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of Child Support Division employees, child support collections continue to increase in the State of Texas. This success not only helps children all across the state, but it also ensures that parents – not the taxpayers – financially support their children.” –Attorney General Greg Abbott

And more with Ted Nugent, on the matter of children:

He has had two wives and has eight children, including three out of wedlock in two liaisons almost 30 years apart. In the late 1960s, prior to his first marriage, Nugent fathered a boy, Ted (Mann) and a girl, whom he gave up for adoption in infancy. This did not become public knowledge until 2010…In 2005 Nugent was involved in a legal battle for not paying enough child support for a child he had out of wedlock in 1995.[It was finally resolved when Nugent was ordered to pay $3,500 in child support.]

Fellow conservative Debbie Schlussel:


BabyDaddy Ted Nugent w/ Ted Mann, 42, One of the Many Kids He Fathered & Abandoned

It’s hilarious to read Ted Nugent’s book, “Ted, White, and Blue: The Nugent Manifesto” which has a whole chapter lecturing Black America on “sexual ethics” and “sexual restraint,” and beseeches Black men to stop fathering children out of wedlock, telling them about the horrible results that happen to kids born without a dad. Um, Ted, POT. KETTLE. BLACK. (Or in this case, White.)…

Yup, Nugent now gives NBA and NFL players some pretty stiff competition in the babydaddy, out-of-wedlock birth category. He recently discovered another one of several kids he gave up for adoption (other kids’ mothers have sued him for child support).

Maybe if we asked Greg Abbott he’d vouch for The Nuge’s family values, albeit in a ‘strong seed’ sort of way. The right-to-life constituency might dig it.

What do you think the next Texas governor feels about the military, hmm?

My brother is a retired Commander from the United States Navy. He served 20 years in the mightiest military the world has ever known.

We never say thank you enough to our military. If you’ve ever worn the uniform of the United States military will you please wave your hand so we can say, “thank you for your service.”

More from his website:

Protect Military Bases and Forces in Texas

The U.S. Armed Forces fight for our freedom, and we owe it to Texas servicemen and women to fight for their funding. As Governor, Greg Abbott will ensure Texas is aggressive in battling defense cuts that could harm our military and will work to protect our military communities.

Now how about you, Ted?

Interviewer: How did you get out of the draft?

Ted Nugent: …I got my physical notice 30 days prior to. Well, on that day I ceased cleansing my body. No more brushing my teeth, no more washing my hair, no baths, no soap, no water. Thirty days of debris build. I stopped shavin’ and I was 18, had a little scraggly beard, really looked like a hippie. I had long hair, and it started gettin’ kinky, matted up. Then two weeks before, I stopped eating any food with nutritional value. I just had chips, Pepsi, beer – stuff I never touched – buttered poop, little jars of Polish sausages, and I’d drink the syrup, I was this side of death, Then a week before, I stopped going to the bathroom. I did it in my pants. Poop, piss the whole shot. My pants got crusted up.

See, I approached the whole thing like, Ted Nugent, cool hard-workin’ dude, is gonna wreak havoc on these imbeciles in the armed forces. I’m gonna play their own game, and I’m gonna destroy ’em.

And so he did. The imbeciles assumed he was too scared to shoot people in Vietnam.

“… if I would have gone over there, I’d have been killed, or I’d have killed, or I’d kill all the hippies in the foxholes … I would have killed everybody,” he told the Detroit Free Press in an interview published July 15, 1990.

Maybe the draft board knew what they were doing. When Ted showed up caked in his own shit, started weeping uncontrollably and then passed out when they tried to take his blood, the Army essentially had no choice. Even if he was faking everything they made the right call. Anyone harboring that much disdain for military service would make a crappy soldier.

Greg Abbott, law-and-order guy, could learn a thing or two here. Recruiting a legendary draft-dodging child molester to bolster your campaign would be a stupid idea. Greg would do better to change his calculations, especially after having spent so much of his career trying to protect Texas from dirtbags like Ted Nugent.


Goodbye Molester Pope

K-Lo with the perfunctory Hosannas:

Benedict’s Message: Go to Jesus

The message: Catholics, be who you claim to be — live lives of prayer and faith . .

Every visible thing this man has said and done as pope has pointed us to Jesus, seeking to build up the body of Christ to a radically new level of engagement.

Pointed to Jesus you say?

Father Stephen Kiesle was assigned to the Oakland, California, diocese. After molesting two boys in a rectory in 1978, he was tried and convicted of sexual assault. But the Church would not release him. After serving his probation, he asked to be de-frocked. The Church would not release him. Diocese officials sent a formal entreaty to the Vatican asking for a ruling on Kiesle, but the Church refused. Finally in 1985, after two more requests, the Vatican’s ethics chief responded:

. . This court, although it regards the arguments presented in favour of removal in this case to be of grave significance, nevertheless deems it necessary to consider the good of the Universal Church together with that of the petitioner, and it is also unable to make light of the detriment that granting the dispensation can provoke with the community of Christ’s faithful, particularly regarding the young age of the petitioner.

It is necessary for this Congregation to submit incidents of this sort to very careful consideration, which necessitates a longer period of time.

In the meantime your Excellency must not fail to provide the petitioner with as much paternal care as possible and in addition to explain to same the rationale of this court, which is accustomed to proceed keeping the common good especially before its eyes.

Let me take this occasion to convey sentiments of the highest regard always to you.

Your most Reverend Excellency

Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger

Kiesle was finally de-frocked two years later. In 2004, he was imprisoned.

More than a half-dozen victims reached a settlement in 2005 with the Oakland diocese alleging Kiesle had molested them as young children.

“He admitted molesting many children and bragged that he was the Pied Piper and said he tried to molest every child that sat on his lap,” said Lewis VanBlois, an attorney for six Kiesle victims who interviewed the former priest in prison. “When asked how many children he had molested over the years, he said ‘tons.’”

Benedict’s message: Screw the Children. Good riddance.


Eddie Long Resurrects Jacko’s Molester King

You’re criminal. You’re deceitful. You’re disgusting. You serially sexually abused four young men, buying their trust with cash, trips and gifts (hee-hee!).

You had to step away from your ministry, for a bit. Your lawyers had to settle with your victims. And then your wife had to leave you, because (duh) you’re gay. If there’s anyone blessed with a mortal soul, Eddie Long, it’s gotta be you.

So it’s with some surprise we heard news of your coronation.

Congratulations, King Pastor Eddie. It couldn’t have happened to a creepier guy.


Rape by Catholic priests and suicides of their victims in Australia

These are the sorts of truths you don’t even want to write about. These are the stories you take in, you put your head in your hands, and you want to forget you ever heard them.

And I might just pass on all of it, the Catholic church’s child sex abuse scandal being so planet-encompassing and seemingly unending. But for the damningly black-hearted carelessness of the Ballarat Bishop, Peter Connors, I might have. But I can hardly tell you how angry I got reading his careless opinions. This is a person too irresponsible to have ever been properly put in charge of anything.

This is the latest reminder that the Catholic church hasn’t come close to realizing what, perhaps for centuries, it had become: a cabal that conspired to molest and rape children. It is only now — now that they can no longer get away with it — that they’re pretending to give a damn about addressing the crimes they’ve perpetrated.

Infuriatingly, in this case, pretending is all they’re prepared to do:

Church sex abuse inquiry ‘not needed’
Kellee Nolan | Herald Sun | August 3, 2011

An inquiry into suicides among victims of sexual abuse by Catholic priests and brothers in Victoria would achieve little, a Catholic bishop says.

Police investigating the case of convicted pedophile Brother Robert Best believe at least 26 victims of sexual abuse at schools in which he taught have committed suicide.

So, let us get this straight: 26 dead bodies, but no wider investigation? And you’re not stonewalling anything, Bishop? If 26 nuns had been raped and later killed themselves, wouldn’t you want to know how such an immense tragedy came to be?

“I don’t think they’ll learn very much more … I’m convinced we’ve done the best we can in more recent years.”

Best, who taught at schools throughout Victoria, including Ballarat, will be sentenced on Monday after pleading guilty to 27 charges of abusing 11 boys between 1969 and 1988.

. . and that’s the end of the story? That’s the beginning, Bishop Connors. How is it Best managed to get away with it for so long? Who else knew about it? Somebody knew about it, that’s guaranteed. When kids were killing themselves, no one thought twice about it?

But Bishop Connors on Tuesday said not even revelations from Detective Sergeant Kevin Carson that 26 young men had killed themselves after being abused by priests and brothers in Ballarat convinced him that more would be learnt from an inquiry.

“I think we’ve learnt a lot of things about what is appropriate behaviour and what’s not appropriate behaviour,” Bishop Connors said.

“I think people are very well informed nowadays as to what’s inappropriate approaches from a male.”

What the FUCK does THAT mean? This Connors guy might be the single most ill-equipped individual to deal with these horrific issues. Sadly, one of Best’s fellow pedophiles (there were more, of course) would be better suited to respond with a mote’s bit of compassion.

While conceding the abuse of children was wrong, he said that in the past it had not always been clear to everyone what was appropriate and inappropriate behaviour.

“In the past a lot of ignorance was there on the part of lots of people. Parents didn’t understand, sometimes bishops didn’t understand. We have no excuse now.”

It’s like the darkest bit of sketch comedy ever staged. Except it keeps going on and on.

Among the charges laid against Best in Victoria’s County Court last month were details of him raping a nine-year-old boy in his office.

The court heard that after Best raped him, the boy thought he was going to die and blacked out.

Bishop Connors said in the past 14 years he had spoken to more than 30 victims of [convicted child molester Father Gerald] Ridsdale and other priests in the Ballarat diocese.

But he said none had told him they were also abused by Best.

“I can’t remember them saying they were victims of Brother Best as well,” he said.

The bishop said he had no reason to meet Best’s victims “because he being a Christian Brother, I’m not responsible for him.”

Unbelievable. Just unbelievable.

A “race card” is not something to play, because race is a very dangerous political plaything.

Ugghhh. The multiplying of metaphors, why do they do that? The wingnuts try so hard to appear smarter, but here they come with the symbols all piled on top of each other, making the whole thing comic before they’ve even begun. We’ve got the problem of playing cards and play-things. Who is this guy, incidentally, Thomas Sowell? Let’s take a gander at his uhh . .

Sowell would like to draw you a bit closer for conversation so that he can size up your kids. He’ll be dragging your smaller children off to that cubbyhole underneath the stairs. He’s been diddling them with the fingers in his eyes the entire time you’ve been reading this. That’s why he has that smile on his face, he can’t contain himself. Take a look — NO DON’T LOOK.

Uh, no. But you are still a hideous thing, aren’t you? No different than you ever were, a disgusting, rotten being. Albeit with some entertaining command of English.

He has just entombed it in his bladder, and I see it begin to violently pin-wheel and shower terrifying-red sparks of magma, as would mesmerize the Chinese on holidays. Satan dances magnificently. I am bound, unbound.”

Right, I’m scared. I don’t know what’s going on here, but I’m getting out of . .

Kentucky investigators conclude Bill Sparkman killed himself, made it look like murder so son could collect insurance

Hanged Census Worker Staged Suicide in Apparent Insurance Scam

The part-time census worker found naked, bound and hanging from a tree had staged his suicide to make it appear like murder, authorities said today.

When the body of Bill Sparkman, 51, was found near a rural Kentucky cemetery in September, he was gagged, had duct tape over his eyes and neck, his hands and feet were bound with tape, and he had “fed” scrawled on his chest.

Authorities initially investigated whether Sparkman had been a victim of anti-government sentiment, but today they said in a statement that he died during an “intentional, self-inflicted act that was staged to appear as a homicide.”

Two life insurance plans had also been taken out by Sparkman, a single father, right before the time of his death, but payment for suicide was precluded, said police…

I got it wrong. I called it ‘murder’, though I didn’t guess that I knew by whom. I couldn’t imagine how he could have died in the manner he did, with his feet found on the ground and his hands in front of him, without a second person being there. The guy who found the body thought the same thing: “The scene left Weaver without a doubt how Sparkman died. ‘He was murdered,’ he said. ‘There’s no doubt.'”

I’ve never heard of a person managing to kill themselves in a manner like that, very strange. Almost an act of sheer will. The only thing I’ve heard that’d be remotely like it is auto-erotic asphyxiation, and, with that, the victim’s bodies and brains are pre-occupied with another goal. Hopefully I’ll do some better analysis next time, I continue to live and learn.

Sparkman was apparently a troubled man who was battling cancer, and he may have just gotten too depressed. Though I doubt he could have known just how big a story his ‘killing’ would become, it still was a lurid and shocking public suicide that intended to implicate others. As a result, quite a few people ended up looking sideways at Kentucky for a couple weeks, and that wasn’t fair. Sparkman made a huge mistake ending his life that way, accusing the people of Kentucky of murder, and now that’s what we’ll remember him for. And our obliging his scam.

Btw, I can live with my Sparkman ‘murder’ gaffe over, say, Roger Hedgecock’s, who guessed he was killed by ‘open borders‘ and Mexican druggies, or Dan Riehl’s, who guessed he was killed because he was a child molester. Knowing Dan, he’ll say that he got it right.


Top 5 enchantment and mirth-related stories brought to you by Michael Jackson

Since so many disappointed people are hanging on to my little political site, calling me an asshole, a moron, a retard for pointing out that a child molester’s dying isn’t necessarily all bad (makes it hard for them to terrorize any more teens), I realize that they might be waiting for some acknowledgment of the beloved entertainer’s penchant for bringing sweetness and light to our dull little lives. Some acknowledgement that His Specialness did indeed paint the world all pink-perfumed and wonderful, and, so, thanks for that.

Jackson fans, you got it:

5.) Michael Jackson’s Chimp Bubbles Tried to Commit Suicide in 2003.

“The year seems to be ending on a bad note for some of the male pop-stars on the international scene. Several of them are battling law-suits or the ire of fans. Heading the list is Michael Jackson, who was formally charged with child-molestation last week…

“Adding distress to the singers plight was the fact that his favourite pet, a chimpanzee named Bubbles tried to commit suicide. The chimp was rushed to the hospital in time…”

4.) Mr. Potato Head, Previously Thought to Be Inanimate, Forced To Puke.

3.) Lola The Llama Torn Apart by Dogs.

2.) Jackson’s Nanny Routinely Pumped His Stomach to Keep Him Alive.

“[Grace Rwaramba] paints a grim picture of Jackson, sometimes penniless but deluded about his ‘riches’, leading a nomadic life, moving from country to country and hotel to hotel, before allegedly falling under the increasing influence of the Nation of Islam, the extremist sect.

“Jackson is believed to have been taking up to eight different drugs a day, including three narcotic painkillers. Rwaramba, who is expected to be interviewed by detectives about whether she helped administer the drugs, said: ‘I had to pump his stomach many times. He always mixed so much of it.'”

1.) Jackson’s Youngest Child Is Named…”Blanket.”

Selections from My Name is Blanket
© 2046 Blanket Jackson
As told to Paul Ford

“My father Michael wanted to protect us, to give us inauspicious, normal lives free of the media spotlight. He accomplished this: by allowing documentary filmmakers to record our childhoods, by dressing us in feathered Mardi Gras masks and gauze when we left the ranch, and by dangling me out of a window with a towel on my head. In retrospect, the logic of his parenting was ambiguous at best. Nonetheless, I had my own giraffe.

“My name was a problem. I had no regular playmates, aside from my siblings and the occasional busload of orphans. But on the occasions when the ranch had any visitors my own age or slightly older, they would call me Pillow, or, if they were French children, Duvet…”


It ain’t just me, folks…

Bus fight over news of Michael Jackson’s death lands Fla. man in jail on assault charge

NORTH LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Florida officials say one passenger chased another down the aisle of a county bus during a fight over news of Michael Jackson’s death.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office says 54-year-old Henry Wideman was released Saturday on $5,000 bond on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. A phone number for him rang unanswered.

According to a release from the sheriff’s office, 60-year-old James Kiernan announced news of the pop singer’s death on a bus Thursday night. The driver, who wasn’t identified, said Jackson should have been jailed long ago.

The sheriff’s office says Wideman got angry when Kiernan responded that the world just lost a great musical talent.

Wideman allegedly shouted profanities and threats at Kiernan and chased him with a knife. Kiernan wasn’t hurt.


Okay all you champions of sexual predators: if Michael Jackson wasn’t a child molester, how do you answer these questions?

I’m not going to try to talk sense to any more of you fame-lamed zombies on the other thread (Do not bother to mourn Michael Jackson…). You can all just demonstrate your brilliance by tackling this new post.

You all seem to know for sure that the wholly bizarre superstar, Michael Jackson, was not at all the unrepentant criminal he appeared to be, you’re all so much smarter than all the unfortunate people who have first-hand experience witnessing the behavior of child molesters. Well, then, you rigid apologists can certainly handle these questions. Should be a piece of cake for you wise old students of human nature:

If Micheal Jackson was not a child molester…

1.) Why did so many people accuse him of being one?

Pretty simple question. You guys think the accusers are greedy–if they wanted to victimize the poor innocent guy and make a bundle, the jerks had to make something up, right? Why was it always child molestation? Just about the most lurid, disgusting thing imaginable? It might be the hardest thing to prove because it’s so unbelievable, so disturbing.

Tommy Lee, Alec Baldwin settled assault cases, George Harrison, Billy Joel settled plagiarism cases. Libel, slander, negligence, harassment, take your pick. But child molesting is a typically easy, frivolous and successful case to press? Really? And someone will do this even though they’ll be forever known as a sex-crime victim? Really?

This is the bottom line: it’s the STUPIDEST thing to make up out of thin air because NO CELEBRITY WILL EVER SETTLE THE CASE. It’s too awful, too damaging, too destructive–it has to be fought tooth and nail, destroyed. A guaranteed war.

Which obviously brings up the next question…

2.) Why would he settle those cases?

At least three cases. I can’t imagine any person in the world wrongly accused of child molestation ever choosing to settle. Any case. Ever. No matter what. I would choose to throw my career away if I could press any allegation to the ragged ends of the Earth and reclaim my good name. But not the most famous guy on the planet? Even keenly aware that everybody will know that he paid off the alleged victims? Fight for your good name vs. publicly paying off the money-grubbing liars: what’s the problem? It’s a no-brainer. Unless you’re guilty. And then it’s the opposite no-brainer.

3.) Why did he sleep with others’ children?

Don’t give me the ‘innocent’ or ‘harmless’ bullshit. No typical adults ever want to do this. Men especially, for obvious reasons, but he did it over and over again. It’s insane.

Jackson: “It’s very right. It’s very loving, that’s what the world needs now, more love more heart.”
Bashir: “The world needs a man who’s 44 who’s sleeping in a bed with children?”
Jackson: “No, you’re making it – no, no you’re making it all wrong …”
Bashir: “Well, tell me, help me …”
Jackson: “Because what’s wrong with sharing a love? You don’t sleep with your kids? Or some other kid who needs love who didn’t have a good childhood?”
Bashir: “No, no I don’t. I would never dream …”
Jackson: “That’s because you’ve never been where I’ve been mentally …”
Bashir: “What do you think people would say if I said well – ‘I’ve invited some of my daughter’s friends round or my son’s friends round and they are going to sleep in a bed with me tonight’?
Jackson: “That’s fine!”

No, that’s not fine.

4.) Why was he ‘grooming’ children?

“Child grooming, in the context of this article, refers to actions deliberately undertaken with the aim of befriending and establishing an emotional connection with a child, in order to lower the child’s inhibitions in preparation for sexual abuse.

“Examples of activities sometimes used as part of child grooming

* Taking an undue interest in someone’s child (having a ‘special’ friend)
* Giving gifts or money to the child for no apparent reason
* Showing pornography to the child
* Talking about sexual topics
* Hugging, kissing, or other physical contact even when the child doesn’t want this attention
* Talking to the child about problems that would normally be discussed between people of the same age or more commonly, adults (e.g. marital problems)
* Becoming good friends with the child’s parents in order to gain easy access to their child (e.g. Babysitting)
* Looking for opportunities to have time alone with the child.
* Inviting the child over for sleepovers or sleeping in the same room or bed with someone else’s child.”

That’s a perfect description of Jackson’s private life. Hell, his public life, too. Nobody who isn’t a child molester behaves like this, it’s disturbing.

5.) After narrowly escaping being found liable in the ’94 Chandler case, why did he return to his unsavory, child-obsessed life?

Why would an innocent man publicly return to the disturbing behavior that nearly destroyed him and everything he had accomplished? If he knew that greedy criminals could make up and press a wholly groundless case based upon the mere appearance of a child obsession, why again prop up the appearance of a child obsession? If the whole fiasco was the worst, most wrenching event of his life, why wouldn’t he try to avoid a second episode?

“It was a nightmare, a horrifying nightmare.”–Jackson

…but a second episode followed. And this time it resulted in a criminal case. The guy was also a brilliant businessman and savvy mega-millionaire, but this was somehow a sensible decision?

6.) Why couldn’t he have relationships with adult women?

…or adult men, for that matter, or anyone? Gay, straight, whatever. How does anyone carry out a life entirely absent any romantic or sexual interest? Especially a giant, famous life–everybody else like that turns that to their advantage, they choose to have as many partners as they like, or they get the best looking, or richest or most famous.

Michael chose…nobody? Does anybody buy that? The two icons he’s being currently compared to in American life are Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley. Those two dudes went through hundreds, maybe thousands of women.

But this is who he ‘married’? This was his passion, the cherished mother of his children?

Although [Rowe] also cited irreconcilable differences as a reason for their divorce in 1999, on 4/27/05 she testified at the Michael Jackson trial that “[we] never shared a home; we never shared an apartment.”

She also stated that she had not seen her children in more than two years. Debbie had been limited to seeing her children only every 45 days, and then for only eight hours under the supervision of a nanny.

Heck, it almost sounds like he doesn’t really like the mother of his children. Sounds as if he’d rather keep her out of his and his kids’ lives.

And those are but a few of the dozens of questions I could ask that no one could possibly answer: Why couldn’t he recognize typical parents’ concerns for the children around him? Why did he have to be with children alone, away from their parents? Why did he have to have sleepovers? Why did he keep such a large porn stash around? Why did he give ‘Jesus Juice’ to teens? Why did his bedroom have an alarm to warn him about people walking down the hall? Why was he a lifelong drug addict?

Of course anyone who refuses to pull his head out of the superstar’s ass can’t answer these questions. Even though there’s a particularly simple truth here: The guy was a child molester. That’s the one answer that explains it all.

Which leaves us with the final question: Why can’t you admit it?


Do not bother to mourn Michael Jackson, the great beloved child molester

No child predator in history was ever so adored. Given the keys to America itself, he took whatever he pleased, and it pleased him to collect and seduce awe-stricken teenaged boys.

“We don’t know that for sure,” you might say. Naw, we know that for sure because child molesters are a strange and troubling breed of human being, and that’s absolutely what Michael Jackson was. They don’t walk, talk, look, or act like normal adults–they practically scream “Here I am, a monster” where they stand in front of you.

I was a 13 year-old skateboarder from a broken family in Southern California when I bumped into the man who owned the skate shop, Doug. He had money, he went to a lot of cool concerts, he put the teens in limos, they all went back to his condo and took jacuzzis. He was a child molester, in jail by the time I graduated high school, and I’m sure a couple of my junior high friends got hurt.

Doug: the wispy personality, the quirky passivity, the nervousness around adults, the inability to deal routinely with them, the inability to look people in the eye, and the limp-wristed handshake. This is what child molesters are like. And lest you think “Hey, my buddy’s a lot like that, and he’s just artsy–he’s no scumbag”, well, then, here’s the difference: they’re always, always, always around kids. The funky or artsy types are almost exactly the opposite.

And, sure, I’m over-generalizing. But also after a dozen or so years of studying and working in Genetics and Molecular Biology, and having grown up around at least two of them, and having gone through ACA twenty years ago and heard dozens of brutal accounts of child molestation, I am of the opinion that they really are a different ‘breed’ of human being because their behaviors are so totally bizarre, anti-social and utterly recognizable, so strikingly similar across cultures and societies.

Which is why I found it astonishing that any adult would allow a boy anywhere near Michael Jackson after the 1993-94 allegations of molesting 13 year-old Jordan Chandler.

Adult Chandler [Jordan’s father] Evan Chandler and Jackson, represented by their legal teams, then engaged in unsuccessful negotiations to resolve the issue in a financial settlement; the negotiations were initiated by Chandler but Jackson did make several counter offers. Jordan Chandler then told a psychiatrist and later police that he and Jackson had engaged in acts of kissing, masturbation and oral sex, as well as giving a detailed description of what he alleged were the singer’s genitals.[83]

But screwed-up parents continued to do so. And the kids, they’re almost always from broken families, little surprise (predators know what they’re doing), and it was only a matter of time until another one got hurt. Another 13 year-old, Gavin Arvizo:

During the alleged sexual incidents, Jackson wore underpants, and the accuser wore underpants or pajamas. On one brief occasion the accuser and his brother claimed they saw Jackson naked, but both boys described the incident differently. According to the brother, Jackson purposefully exposed himself and his penis was erect, but according to the accuser, Jackson only came up the stairs from the bathroom to the bedroom while unclothed, retrieved something and went downstairs. Even if the incident was non-sexual, this was significant to the brothers, because they had never seen a naked adult before.

The accuser told a school administrator at a date after he had left Neverland that Jackson had not molested him. Later, at the trial, he said that this was not true, that he had lied because he was already teased after the airing of the Bashir documentary, and he feared that the teasing would get worse if he would have told the truth, which, as he now said, is as follows: on one occasion Jackson manipulated the accuser’s genitals for about five minutes, causing the accuser to ejaculate (count 2); the next day Jackson started it again (count 3) and also tried to guide the accuser’s hand to Jackson’s genitals, but the accuser pulled away (count 6). The accuser said that he was happy at Neverland, and that only after leaving did he realize he didn’t want to be there anymore.

The boy’s brother claimed that Jackson had showed them pornography, both via the Internet and magazines. Allegedly, he showed them photographs of topless women, while stating “Got milk?”. Apparently he also leaned in and whispered to Prince Michael II, who was sleeping nearby, “Prince, you’re missing some pussy” while the accuser and the accuser’s brother stared at the images on the computer screen. Other accusations include coercing the boys into “cussing,” and swearing them to secrecy, insisting that they do not tell anyone “even if they have a gun to your head.”

The exact same age and sex of teens,  sleeping with them in his bed, creating a ‘secret world’, providing them with pornography,  plying them with ‘Jesus Juice’, appearing naked in front of them–does anybody doubt that these things didn’t happen? Even his ardent defenders would likely sadly admit, yes, these events occurred, but rule out the actual sex crime.

But who the hell acts like that? This is my point–these behaviors are so bizarre and so wildly unacceptable that there’s no doubt about what was really going on: Mega-Superstar Michael Jackson was a child molester. Period. I can’t buy any other reality because no other exists. The guy was a flat-out criminal.

Time, now, to ask: Aren’t we somewhat guilty of letting him get away with these horrible crimes? Not individually, but collectively? Weren’t we so struck by fame and those it accompanies we actually invoked a second reality for them, one in which they’re just not people any more? The Famous, they’re not assholes/they’re complicated, they’re not selfish/they’re focused, not greedy/they’re hungry, not cruel/they’re driven, not careless/they’re busy. It looks that way to me. In the end, they don’t even die, they just live on. We make them bigger than life, and anything bigger than life just can’t be alive.

Jackson was surely alive, though, as anyone is who’s cursed with an evil disease. His disease was child molesting, and it was a malady caused by his brain organization. As with other predators like him, it could probably be traced to developmental causes and perhaps, additionally, genetic contributions as well. In the future, I’m sure molestation will be recognized as a disease, but this won’t be to mitigate its evil; it’ll be to put the onus upon the seriously sick to take responsibility for his or her heinous problem and get psychiatric treatment and support as soon as possible. People will have to accept their dangerous drives and the responsibilities they demand.

And this is where I can damn Jackson with impunity. He organized his whole meteoric life to dazzle and seduce his victims. Albeit not necessarily prolific, the guy has to be recognized as one of the most effective molesters in history. There is almost no way, with the monstrous size of his intoxicating fame, that a mixed-up teen could have had a chance once Jackson put his mind to it. And how many troubled parents would have been able to figure out that the most famous person in the world was an obvious criminal, casually willing to look the part of shameless monster in public? It’s almost too much to believe, especially if you’re unfamiliar with how predators operate.

It is, however, exactly how Michael Jackson operated. One of history’s biggest celebrities was an open and obvious scumbag, and people practically knocked down his door to offer up their poor boys. Can we please remember that his victims will be revisiting their private hells while practically everybody else on the planet cries for the ‘tragic’ Superstar? It’d be a decent thing to do. We can also be thankful that the whole obscene string of crimes has ended now. Good riddance, famous child predator.

JACKSON DEFENDERS: if you really think the guy wasn’t a sexual predator, then feel free to take a crack at this post. Don’t bother, you can’t win.
