Come on. Let’s say it. Out loud. It takes the heat off. The “liberal media” will spend days on live-shots from helicopters, shrines, mourners and a funeral.
Jermaine Jackson just read a statement about the death of his brother, Michael Jackson. At the end he said, “May Allah be with you always.”
What? Was Michael Jackson a Muslim? I recalled something about that way back in the recesses of my mind but nothing specific. But it’s true. Google it. Here’s what I found at the top of the heap a few seconds ago: “Michael Jackson Converts to Islam and Changes Name to Mikaeel.“
Fascinating, isn’t it, that this wasn’t more widely publicized (or maybe I’m just out of it)? I mean, horrors of all horrors that a U.S. pop icon would become a terrorist, if you know what I mean. (The powers that were — namely the Bush administration and its enablers the “liberal media” — did everything they could to brainwash people here in the U.S. into believing that all Muslims are terrorists. So, what to do about Michael Jackson becoming one? Ignore it. It didn’t fit the meme.)
I’m one of those radical lefties who believes in oh, things like talking and diplomacy and trying to work out differences through peaceful means as opposed to jumping on the bombing so this is good news imho.
The Los Angeles Times‘ blog, L.A. NOW confirms it (See “Updated at 3:15 p.m.”).
“It’s amazing that the amount of news that happens in the world every day always just exactly fits the newspaper.

If only Fox’s audience would crawl out from under its rock and start educating itself. No, the New York Times is not a liberal newspaper everybody. They do this kind of thing all the time: Bash Obama for taking a question from the Huffington Post as “staged,” but praise Bush strutting around on the aircraft carrier as nothing short of genius.
