King: MJ Coverage an 'Orgy of Glorification'

7/6/2009 10:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Congressman who railed Michael Jackson by calling him a "pedophile" and "child molester" this weekend isn't done yet -- Rep. Peter King has ammo for days.

Congressmen Peter King Click to view!
"Yes, he did violate young boys. He did put them in terribly inappropriate positions. And that's a terrible signal to be sending out to society," the NY Congressman told CBS 2 today, among other gems.

King swears he won't speak out against MJ tomorrow -- out of respect for his memorial.

Just another drug addict dead. He was just a celebrity. Besides entertaining the masses, what else did he do that he should be idolized for?
There have been people in this world that have died and have contributed more to the betterment of mankind that deservedly
deserve our praise and admiration a lot more then just another drug addicted celebrity that accidentally over-dosed.
Enough is enough already.

I guess he is now the leader of the republican party? Way to go....Even in death, Michael Jackson is even uniting republicans. This is their new platform to take heat off of South Carolina's governor. I bet after he saw the Steve McNair story, I bet he is constantly begging his wife for forgiveness. I betcha she's his NEW AND IMPROVED SOULMATE.

Oh My Goodness    

WHO CARES what this man has to say? 8 out of 10 people believe Michael Jackson is innocent according to statistics.

Those of us who know Michael is innocent greatly outnumber those who think Michael was guilty.

Also check this -- The only people who are calling The King of Pop a pedophile are those who didn't know him very well as his friends, family and true fans. That says alot right there.

Once again, ignore this congressman and don't give him the attention he's looking for! If you don't ignore him, you're just giving him exactly what he wants.

IGNORE HIM FOR MICHAEL!

R.I.P. MJ

this d bag is a totally using MJs story to attract attention to himself, which is funny because his youtube rants complain about all the media attention MJ is getting. If you would like to tell PETE KING how inappropriate his comments are, (especially since he is an elected official and I imagine he should be worried about things other than media impact) this link will take you to his contact page: http://peteking.house.gov/email.shtml

Oh he's a 21st century republican -they don't believe in the judicial system -unless they can find a way around it. Seems to me Mr. King & his cronies put a lot of young people in terribly innappropriate positions in a place called Iraq & a lot of them have suffered terribly for it - never mind the message that's sent to the world. God, I am so sick of these people and their constant WHINING! Who wasn't disgusted with 8 years of listening to them? They're irrelevant, they should figure it out & zip it! Meanwhile, if you're in NY -remember this fool at the voting booth!

I agree with Peter King's comments. It is disgusting and an outrage that we as a society glorify someone because they are a celebrity and are willing to overlook the facts that point strongly to Michael Jackson being a preferential child molester over many years, with many victims and witnesses testifying to that fact. Respect is earned. Just because someone is dead doesn't automatically entitle them to it. If that were true, we wouldn't be able to speak badly of Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, or Adolf Hitler. For those of you think that the criminal justice system is infallible and that a verdict of not guilty proves innocence, think again. People on a jury can be just as star-struck as any other person and choose not to believe someone is guilty because they admire them.

Jackson's fame and wealth allowed him to create an environment to be able to isolate and likely seduce the never-ending stream of young boys that spent nights with him in his bedroom and to beat down any attempt to hold him responsible for his actions.

Shame on our society for turning the other way and allowing it to continue for so long, protecting someone because he was an entertainer, defending him at all costs, at the expense of young children. Those people who chose to do so, whether paid employees or attorneys or within the general public, are, for all intents and purposes, accomplices to his crimes.

The only orgy of glorification is this guy coming out of nowhere and using Michaels death to make his own name known. He came out of nowhere and using Michaels moment for self acknowledgement. I have a feeling this will be your final term. Sure the women and men who fight for the country deserve accredations and they do get it,but he is using Michaels fame for his own flamboyancy.
