Why are conservatives more supportive of Michael Jackson??

They lack empathy for victims of sexual abuse

You mean black conservatives?

R2 White and black conservatives

It’s not just conservatives. Liberals are supportive of him too. Yet they call Drake a creep for texting Millie Bobby Brown.

I don't know what you are talking about, the only people I've met that are supportive or making excuses for him have not been conservative or even moderates. It is mainly leftists who say he was railroaded for being black.

Grievance culture. The far right uses all sorts of online grievances to recruit to their cause. It started in earnest with Gamergate, where gamers who were just the usual nerds who hate girls were sucked into rightwing nutjob conspiracies and MRA causes. From there these gamers were told to hate immigrants ("they're taking your jobs!") and blacks ("they're lowering educational advancement!") and all sorts of other far-right talking points.

With Jackson, you get the MRAs and the fake black activist leftists on Twitter saying that this is the work of Democrats who are racist and will go after any black man with power. They do the same with Cosby, Chappelle, etc.

The same fake accounts on Twitter who support Jackson also support Johnny Depp with similar "woke liberals won't admit women can be abusers" stuff.

The anti-trans and anti-Meghan Markle stuff is very similar but with a slightly different flavor because it involves the Brits, who are their own special brand of hateful.

R6 Get a grip girl.

What does "supportive of" mean?

He was a great performer, but was likely a pedo.

Wagner was a genius composer but was a terrible anti-semite.

He was a pedo. What adult men slept with young boys for years? He’s beyond disgusting. I truly hope that someday that pedo will be found guilty.

R9, it's hard to find him guilty at a trial when he's dead

by Anonymousreply 10October 21, 2021 7:52 PM

R9 Considering he is dead, the only way he will be found guilty is if you believe in the judgement of the dead in the afterlife.

by Anonymousreply 11October 21, 2021 7:53 PM

Conservatives are supportive of him because he became white later in life.

by Anonymousreply 12October 21, 2021 7:56 PM

R12 That's what I also feel.

by Anonymousreply 13October 21, 2021 8:08 PM

R12 But, he also seemed to be tryin to transition into Elizabeth Taylor, and conservatives don't love Trans.

by Anonymousreply 14October 21, 2021 8:09 PM

Yeah, I tink the same, with all these operations he tried to look like Elizabeth Taylor, but the result was Liz' ugly stepsister.

by Anonymousreply 15October 21, 2021 8:13 PM

R15 Yeah, if Joan Collins was the poor man's Liz, MJ would be the screaming, dirty, methed out homeless man's Liz.
