No tears for Reagan
June 8, 2004 / http://tinyurl.com/558r6l
Excuse me if I don’t shed any tears over the passing of former President Ronald Reagan. While the news of the 40th president’s death brought on a flood of sentimentality over the nation’s media this past weekend, I could not help but recall what the Reagan presidency really meant for Black Americans. Similar to what occurred upon the death of Richard Nixon, amnesia has set upon journalists as they recall Reagan’s era; choosing to indulge in idol worship rather than serious reflection on the former president’s policies.

Ronald Reagan: The Great White Redeemer
http://tinyurl.com/6jljhm / June 10 2004
Only 12 years elapsed between the glorious military victory over the Confederate Slave States in 1865 and the definitive defeat of Reconstruction in 1877. In many important respects, the Reconstruction period was even briefer than that. By 1870, when the last of the southern states ratified the 15th Amendment to the Constitution, Tennessee had already rejected biracial democracy and installed an all-white “Redeemer” government.“Redemption” then swept through Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.

Reagan's heart of darkness
June 9, 2004 / http://tinyurl.com/28ytj
PRESIDENT Bush proclaimed: "Ronald Reagan believed that God takes the side of justice and that America has a special calling to oppose tyranny and defend freedom." In the first three days of news reports on the death of the former president, not a single major American newspaper, television station, or politician has dared to exhume this counterpoint to the Reagan's legacy: "Immoral, evil, and totally un-Christian."

Trent Lott, Ronald Reagan and Republican Racism
Dec. 14, 2002 / http://tinyurl.com/d9w75
Southern Strategy: The race question has haunted Reagan and the GOP for decades
The same could be said, of course, about such Republican heroes as, Barry Goldwater, Richard Nixon or George Bush the elder, all of whom used coded racial messages to lure disaffected blue collar and Southern white voters away from the Democrats. Yet it's with Reagan, who set a standard for exploiting white anger and resentment rarely seen since George Wallace stood in the schoolhouse door, that the Republican's selective memory about its race-baiting habit really stands out.

Reagan, White As Snow
http://tinyurl.com/6lujee
Last week, as we’ve heard, the Republican presidential candidates praised the name and heritage of Ronald Reagan 40 times during the televised Show and Tell at the Reagan Presidential Library. That none of them mentioned Reagan’s legacy of white supremacy and support for apartheid is a little like invoking Jefferson Davis and not mentioning treason or slavery. Actually, a lot like it.
Ronald Reagan was a white supremacist to his very core, and left enough traces over his lengthy political career so that it’s evident for anyone who cares to look—which apparently few do.
Domestically, he opposed every legislative remedy for African Americans, betraying a meanness of spirit and an open racism. As Sidney Blumenthal wrote in The Guardian in 2003:/ http://www.tompaine.com/articles/2007/05/08/r...

TO PAMIETY: I try to believe anything when it comes to giving an individual the benefit of the doubt. Michael Jackson grew up in entertainment. Every cynical thing and every advantage one person takes on another is known in that field. Why wouldn't he know? Was he that innocent? Was he that stupid to sleep with children? He has no history of dating women! He has no history of cheap or expensive prostitutes pleasuring him! His marriages were proven false!I am not trying to condemn him. But if he molested a child, he was evil. And he with all of his money could have fixed any problem. Even if it meant he was much heavier.

I have to agree with you pamiety. How does anyone know for certain if he really did do the things he was accused of? We don't unless we were there and to publicly make these statements, is really typical of most christian rightwingers. They only make themselves look ignorant by judging others.
Peter Kings entire statement is hypocritical. For the only way he could have possibly come to his conclusion of believing Michael was guilty, was by forming that opionion based on what he was fed through the media. Was he there when it happened?
This is why so many prisoners are falsley convicted and some of them even murdered.

Ahhhh, PK telling it like it is, offending the sensibilities of the minorities and liberals. Love it!

Just curious, where are all the left wing loonies and unhinged Catholic haters who come out by the hundreds on these boards when a white pervert priest is in the news? If a perv's got a little color and can moonwalk and sing I guess they are little less principled?

That's a lie.

The death of Mary Ann Kopechne was another Media Feeding Frenzy every bit the size of the Jackson Death Wailing that is ongoing now. Ted Kennedy drove off a bridge in the fog, and failed to save her. He was assummed to be cheating on his wife, and possibly drunk. The Media had a Field day, as you would expect. I guess you weren't around at the time. It went on forever.

He was most likely drunk as usual but all the fat slob did was contribute to her death.

Regardless of your personal opinion Congressman (which have no facts to support them), have the decency to keep your comments to yourself while his family is mourning. hello he was accused not convicted. Michael Jackson and his family deserve that respect. i don't belive michael is any of that i believe he was just a famous and talented guy that someone just wanted money off of him by telling a lie. i guess it is hard to belive there are nice people in this world. i belive pete just wanted publicity. michael seemed like he was a sweet and really nice person who had hard times in his life like everyone else. try not to look at the bad about a person and focus on the good. when people wach the news do you look for something good or bad? yeah! soldiers die EVERYDAY!!!!!!! and we have been aknowleging that EVERYDAY FOR EIGHT LONG LONG YEARS!!!!!!!! michael jackson just died have some respect. he's done alot for the people he's conrtibuted to alot of charities he's touched alot of lives. pete king must be a pedophile hisself he's no perfect he's cheated on his wife. and since when did he care about celebrities isn't he supposed to be worried about his job. and it's not just the black community grieving it's all across the world. peter king is a prejudice A-Hole that has nothing else better to do than to focus on whats apparrent commenting on issues he knows nothing about. Was he there when these so called accusations were made against Michael Jackson? No ones life is picture perfect I'm quite sure if you start digging into mr. kings past and present we could make another video with all his skeletons dancing to A-holes life! i belive pete king is a racist. what goes around comes aroung you dog!. he was proved innocent i have never doubted michael i never thought the accusations were true.Get this Jerk out of congress and charge him with slander.

Now be careful not to cast the 'First Stone', he has done much better since then, and served Massachusetts well for many years. It will not be too long before he has to answer for his life before the Lord. You and I will have to do the same.

Peter King is saying what most of us have already said. While Jackson was a talented person, he ruined his image by his deranged actions. He was a perv, a pedophile and a wacko. The coverage of his death is way overblown and the suggestion by race baiter Al Sharpton that there be a national day of mourning is just way beyond absurd. This whole thing is surreal and it's only getting worse.
