THE CONSPIRACY TO KILL MICHAEL JACKSON

The same thousands if not millions of people who were speaking of their tears and sobs and heartache and pain and outrage upon watching a certain video documenting the death of a certain girl from a certain country, are now luxuriating in those same emotions as they hear of the death of the self-named King of Pop. Check any news website or news blog if you don’t believe me.

Far be it from me to disrespect to Mr. Jackson, or or suggest that his death is not worthy of all the attention which it is receiving- I just wish there was a slight sense of priorities.

For the past ten days, the top news item on both the Guardian, the BBC, as well the tops stories on the Slate were devoted to the civil unrests of a certain country, somewhere in the middle-east. You know, the country shaped like a cat. Jezebel posted pictures of attractive female protestors, and people commented on the bravery, the self-sacrifice and the other blah blah blah of the blah blah. The cat-country is nowhere to be seen, now.

After all, what is grave abuse of human rights, what is killings and beating of civilian protestors, what is the what, compared to THE DEATH OF MICHAEL JACKSON???????? 

It is times like these that I find myself hating the capitalist media system of the developed countries, and their insistence of promoting whatever sells. Graphic pictures of  gory violence on the streets of Tehran? Excellent! Michael Jackson had a heart attack? Couldn’t be better!

It’s funny, that I read this morning (a tiny item tucked away in a general news round-up) that the authorities of the cat-country have blamed the CIA / terrorists for the shooting of the girl whose name means call. To turn the conspiracist tables on them,  I do not hesitate to lay the death of Mr. Jackson at the feet of the those cloaked authorities. After all, from their point of view , it couldn’t have been timed better. Even if their henchmen didn’t actually force the medication which led to the death of Mr. Jackson down his  throat, then without doubt, they dialled their special access line to God, and ordered this event. And God was ever willing to please.  

As He has proved in the past.

    Hun why r u so shocked?! Of course the death of The King of Pop is much more important than some riot in a third-world crazy country. I’m not kiddin’ I mean it. I too hate the capitalist system, n I believe they themselves killed the poor Michael. I wrote an interesting post on my blog to back up my theory! BTW I thought you were his fan, why aren’t u sad right now?! I also wrote in that post that you r a fan! Well don’t get mad, when you read it!

  4. There will always be this type of death in Itan , so i can’t see what you mean by priorities here , it just happens to be shared in the international press . In years gone by new sreporters probably would have been shot too for reporting this!

    MJ touches far more people!
