I've alway found the die-hard MJ fans to be a bit.......off.......in weeping and hysterics anytime he was seen in public or took the stage, and it didn't take long for me to grow tired of the media hooplah surrounding some of these fans who primarily reside on the fringe of society.  Seriously, don't you think it's time to retire that red Member's Only jacket and perhaps start wearing gloves on both hands?  I've never understood the absolute hysterical behavior of Michael Jackson fans.  He was a pop music icon, sure, but fans acted as if he were some sort of messiah.  

Similar to sports fans dressing up in jerseys and screaming/yelling for 3-4 hours at a time.  Pop music fans could probably make an argument that sports fans are just as crazy.  Of course, fanatics of anything, be it sports/music/religion/politics always freak me out a bit anyway.

OK, I gotta respond to this. When was the last time you saw hundreds, or sometimes thousands of people weeping uncontrollably at the sight of LeBron James? Albert Pujols? Tom Brady? Peyton Manning? Tiger Woods? You really aren't gonna tell us that these types of Michael Jackson fans are normal-type fans are you? Pete is right, they are.....strange, to be kind, maybe we can say, eccentric, but to compare them with sports fans? No way.

What part of fanatics freak me out do you not get?  

Wow, you are such a, how can I say this, jerky, is that the right word, person. Is it not obvious I was addressing your first sentence? Eh, what's the point, you just saw another opportunity to be snarky towards me, so whatever.

I'm sorry, but what?  I figured you were responding to my entire post.  I'm sorry it wasn't that clear what you were referring to.  Also, it's the Internet, don't make it so God damn personal by playing the victim card yet again.

Here we go with the "victim card" script again. Haven't the 3 or 4 of you that continue to throw that old bullshit around given up yet? Either come out and tell me what exactly your problem is with me, so we can deal with it, or move the fuck on. There is no "victim" crap being played here, but I get a little tired of every time you reply to me, you talking to me like an absolute ass. What's your problem man?

My problem with you is simple.  You love to enter threads and argue your point but then when someone presents a counter argument you get all butt hurt and start accusing people of making personal attacks against you.  You act like a child.  Also, I don't believe I have ever accused you of playing the victim card before,if I have I apologize, but I think if others have they probably have a solid point.  Anyway, I don't want to clutter this thread with our personal discussion and will just leave it at this:  If you can't take the other side of an argument you should probably quit the internet.

I may not be the most agreeable guy on here, or take things as well as I should, but you're hardly Mother Teresa, and I can't stand but chuckle a bit that you're trying to lecture me on "taking the other side of an argument".

We were all having a very respectful discussion until you made what I thought was a very smart assed post to me, something you seem to do frequently. I wasn't having any problem with any counter arguments and if you look at my replies to people, they weren't out of line anywhere. You started this whole blow up, not me, but it's pretty obvious you have an issue with me on some sort of personal level at this point, and that's got nothing to do with any "victim card" being played.

So many emotions in a thread like this...whatever else you may say, he always causes controversy. Re the sports fan analogy, well...sports fans are pretty crazy as well if you take the extremes. In Europe, bands have formed, that follow their favorite Soccer teams around, with the sole intent of getting into fights, killings have occured even. Its even worse in Great Britain, with the Hooligans as I'm sure MO and Tals could tell you.

What I'm trying to say is, dont compare every fan of MJ to the ones that starts crying when they see him - thats the extremists, not the normal fan, same as sport, and any large group of people following something or someone

edit: and to Jbland, I've slept with my daugthers - Am I a child molester? What if someone thought so, because I slept in the same bed as them? The point is - I DONT KNOW what MJ did and didnt do... and appearently, the state decided he didnt do anything illegal, right? Sure he was wierd, and strange, and yes, it was very strange he slept with those boys, but - he was Michael Jackson and did strange stuff, but that certainly doesnt mean he was a child molester, unless you know something I dont know.


Please, your children aren't the issue here, so don't make it look like I am trying to paint with that broad a brush. You know what I am trying to say. In any event, I'm not going to go down the list of compelling reasons to believe he did what he was accused of, especially since many of you aren't going to process the information.

I am confused as to why you are convinced he ISN'T a pedophile, while at the same time acknowledging he is strange for sleeping with children. What kind of adult would even put themselves in that position if they weren't engaging in that type of behavior?

I think your confusion arises from thinking we need to be convinced one way or the other. Just because I'm not convinced he is a child molester, doesn't mean I'm convinced he isn't. You seem like a rational guy, so what proof have you seen to convince you he abuses children? Sleeping with them doesn't equal abuse.

Well, as I said, a grown man, inviting little kids over to "play", giving them wine (Jesus juice), and then sleeping in the same bed, as well as reports from the children, house staff, et al, make it sure seem like something was going on. He wasn't convicted, but I think that has to do more with who he is (just like Chris Brown, or whatever Rihanna's abusers name is) than the evidence being dramatically in his favor. Also, as someone else raised, there was the matter of the payoff to the one family, who had a strong case, from what I remember.

I can turn the tables though, what evidence do you guys see that he is innocent?

Easy enough. The lack of evidence that he is guilty.

While sharing a bed with children not your own may be weird and creepy, I don't think it's illegal. And all the reports from et al, apparently weren't enough to convince a jury.

This question is a complete logical fallacy. You're asking for evidence that something didn't happen. By logic, there is no such thing as evidence of something that didn't happen. You can't logically prove a negative!

This is the very reason that people in our system are innocent until proven guilty.

I like to think of Michael how he was when Thriller came out, then it was like the guy was literally everywhere.  I'm not sure what turned him onto the strangeness in his later years, some say it was the accident he had while filming the Coke commercial.  It really feels like another piece of my childhood is gone now, just makes me feel that much older.

As to the pedophile charges, I really don't have an opinion because I don't think anyone can make judgments given the evidence presented.  I wouldn't have thought he was capable of doing anything like that back when he was wearing the zipper jackets and white glove, but I also never would have thought he'd butcher his face like he did.  The family's word alone isn't enough, since if you look into their history they seem to have a habit of suing people.  I also don't buy the bullshit allegations from his staff either, as they're most likely either looking for a payday as well or 15 minutes of fame.  No one will ever know the entire story, so debate now is pointless.  I don't know Moliere or PeteRock, so really their word doesn't mean much to me.  No offense to either, as both seem like decent guys, I just take what I hear about on the Internet with a grain of salt.  I must admit I do find Moliere pulling this story out of thin air a bit suspect.  I do know that he hasn't been a member here for very long, and also wasn't around during the trial, so maybe this is just the first chance he's had to bring it up.  Regardless:

Rest in peace, King of Pop.

I've been a member of GT for 14 months and OO for 33 months. How long does it take to gain credibility on a Forum? I ask this not as a personal question about me, but as a follow up to Razgon's earlier comment about how we form opinions. It was a great inquiry and should be followed up on.

Why would I have brought this MJ stuff up before now? It would seem a little strange for me to start a thread 6 months ago about allegations of child molestation that happened over 15 years ago. My statements were based solely on the 1993 allegations which never went to trial. I'm not here to convince anyone. I just stated why I am not grieving over his death.

Amen, brother.

While I can appreciate MJ's talent, I can't think of a single song of his that I ever liked.  The needle on my "Give-a-Crap-O-Meter" didn't even budge when I heard he died.

And this just showed up about the accusations against MJ in '93:

Quote
The boy who accused Michael Jackson of sexually abusing him in 1993 has now come forward and admitted he lied, dated 30/06/2009

Jordan Chandler told a psychiatrist and police that he and MJ had engaged in sexual acts that included oral sex. The case was settled out of court for a reported $22 million, but the strain of the accusations appear to be what started Michael on his road to painkiller addiction.

Jordan now says, I never meant to lie and destroy Michael Jackson but my father made me to tell only lies. Now I cant tell Michael how much Im sorry and if he will forgive me. Jordan also claims he was under the influence of his father, Evan Chandler, who allegedly instructed his son to tell the lies so the family could escape poverty.

Now for the first time I cant bare to lie anymore. Michael Jackson didnt do anything to me, all was my father lies to escape from being poor.

Yes, I know the link is out of Wikipedia (at the very bottom), but this isn't the first time I've heard of this over the past day or so. Make of it what you will. I just find it and post it.

As far as MJ's music goes - I loved a few of his songs. His music videos though, are something else entirely. They are definitely classics.

I've alway found the die-hard MJ fans to be a bit.......off.......in weeping and hysterics anytime he was seen in public or took the stage, and it didn't take long for me to grow tired of the media hooplah surrounding some of these fans who primarily reside on the fringe of society.  Seriously, don't you think it's time to retire that red Member's Only jacket and perhaps start wearing gloves on both hands?  I've never understood the absolute hysterical behavior of Michael Jackson fans.  He was a pop music icon, sure, but fans acted as if he were some sort of messiah.  

Err but isn't that how the Beatles were treated as well?   Not that I'm picking on you are anything I just found it ironic and funny you were worried about the Beatles music rights in the same post were complaining about 'crazy' MJ fans. smile

 saywhat

Isn't this a Michael Jackson thread?  Mentioning opinions on one group of fans does not imply a free-pass for fans exhibiting similar behavior for other musicians/athletes/sports/cheesesteaks/hot dogs/presidents/etc, I merely limited my comments to the particular performer being discussed in this thread.  Simply because I didn't mention fans of other performers does not automatically suggest that I may not have similar feelings about them.  

I didn't realize that expressing "angst" toward one fan base requires me to also list similar "angst" toward any and all other fan bases exhibiting similar behavior.

And I thought I covered my feelings on extremist behavior in the next exchange on the topic:

Similar to sports fans dressing up in jerseys and screaming/yelling for 3-4 hours at a time.  Pop music fans could probably make an argument that sports fans are just as crazy.  Of course, fanatics of anything, be it sports/music/religion/politics always freak me out a bit anyway.

It's one thing to cheer on your favorite sports team each week/game/tournament/etc.  It's something else entirely to fall down and piss yourself while a noseless white woman enters the room.  Extremists in any area of interest are frightening, as you have said.
   

Extreme Michael Jackson fans are a bit "off", but I see no reason why bringing this to anyone's attention requires me to menton all other groups exhibiting similar behavior.  After all, aren't we primarily discussing Michael Jackson?  Perhaps I'll cover my feelings on Beetles fans in a Beetles thread, at least if I had any interest in entering.

Hell, I find football fans who get into fist fights with fans of their own team to be a bit "off", I find soccer fans who kill each other after a victory to be a bit "off", and I find religious extremists who kill in the name of a potentially fictional being to be a bit "off", but what does that have to do with Michael Jackson?
