Helter Skelter and the prophecy of Charles Manson

Who on the left idolized the mass murderer, and why?

The 1960’s

The infamy of the Manson is well known today as is the motivation behind the gruesome murders perpetrated by him and his followers. The term “Helter Skelter” was immortalized during the trial as Manson’s prophecy of a race war where the “black man” would end victorious over the white man and would rule the world.

This is fact and was proven in the criminal court system in the trial record. The murders took place on August 9, 1969. Two months later to the day, another band of terrorists, the Weather Underground (an SDS offshoot) and their founder was Bernadine Dohrn (Bill Ayers wife) were wreaking havoc in Chicago (Days of Rage riots) that left one man paralyzed for life.

What do the Weather Underground, Bernadine Dohrn (Bill Ayers wife) and Manson have in common? The all shared the same philosophy in the “Black man” rising to overthrow an oppressive white, privileged culture and were willing to murder to achieve their goals. In the end, Manson failed and is spending the rest of his life in prison for his crimes but Dohrn, Ayers and a host of SDS/Weatherman Underground leaders were not punished, but succeeded in getting an African American elected to the White House. Not only were the leaders of the SDS and Weatherman Underground not punished they went on to prominent and powerful positions in Politics and Academia.

Obama got his introduction into politics at the Weatherman Underground leader’s home in Chicago when he ran for the Illinois State Senate.

The SDS and Weatherman Underground were working hand in hand with the violent and militant black groups in the 1960 (Black Liberation Front, Black Liberation Army, Black Panthers, etc) in their quest to overthrow the United States Government by force of violence. They all wanted the same thing and were in solidarity with each other.

For instance,

“In the summer of 1969, the ninth SDS national convention was held at the Chicago Coliseum with some 2000 people attending. Many factions of the movement were present, and set up their literature tables all around the edges of the cavernous hall. The Young Socialist Alliance, Wobblies, Spartacists, Marxists and Maoists of various sorts, all together with various law-enforcement spies and informers contributed to the air of impending expectations.

Each delegate was given the convention issue of the newspaper New Left Notes, which contained a manifesto, "You don't need a Weatherman to know which way the wind blows". This manifesto had been first presented at the Spring, 1969, SDS National Council Meeting in Austin, Texas.

The document had been written by an 11-member committee that included Mark Rudd, Bernardine Dohrn and John Jacobs, and represented the position of the Revolutionary Youth Movement (RYM) wing of SDS, most of which later turned into the Weather Underground Organization. The New Left Notes issue was full of the language of the Old Left of the 1930s; and was thus impenetrable and irrelevant to the majority of SDSers.” – Wikipedia

Examples of solidarity:

Members of the Black Liberation Army (BLA) were indicted for the 1971 killing of San Francisco Police Sergeant, John Young. The BLA worked with the Weather Underground.

In fact, the Weather Underground and the BLA in 1981 tried to rob a Brinks truck and killed three law enforcement officers in Rockland County, New York. Weather Underground members Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert went to prison for their roles in the assault, while their “comrades,” Ayers and Dohrn, raised their child, Chesa Boudin. Dohrn was jailed for seven months for refusing to cooperate with a federal grand jury investigating the murders.

Chesa Boudin (whom Dohrn adopted after her mother was convicted in the Brinks murder) would grow up and live in Venezuela and become a self-described “foreign policy adviser” to Marxist ruler Hugo Chavez, implicated by the evidence and newspaper accounts in support for the Colombian FARC and Middle Eastern terror groups. By his own admission, Ayers has traveled four times to Venezuela to lecture on “educational” issues. He was described by Venezuelan authorities during one appearance as a former leader of a “revolutionary and anti-imperialist group” that “brought an armed struggle to the USA for more than 10 years from within the womb of the empire.”

During their time in the Weather Underground, before they became “respectable” and “mainstream” and associated with politicians like Barack Obama, Dohrn and Ayers signed a document, “Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism,” dedicated to Sirhan Sirhan, the assassin of Robert F. Kennedy.

Eric Holder, as the Assistant Attorney General under Clinton was instrumental in getting two of the Weatherman Underground convicted terrorists pardoned who participated in the Brinks job, on the last day of his Presidency. It was done by stealth.

In an April 2008 Democrat debate, Obama criticized the pardon of Clinton in a “lip service for the masses” because he went on to hire Holder (the architect of the Weatherman pardons) after winning the election.

Eric Holder, as Attorney General under Obama dropped the voter intimidation case that was already won against the three “New Black Panther” separatist militants in Philadelphia in 2009.

Birth of the BLA

In 1965 the Black Liberation Front created when 84 students returned from a trip to Cuba. The founder of the BLA was one of those 84 (Robert Steele Collier) who was arrested for attempting to blow up the Statue of Liberty and the Washington Monument.

Another one of the 84 was Jerry Rubin (Founder of the Yippies).

“Jerry Rubin set the tone perfectly during his trip to Cuba in 1964, during which he paid special homage to Castro’s chief executioner, Che Guevara. Rubin proudly recalls:

We were 84 Amerikan students visiting Cuba illegally in 1964. We had to travel 14,000 miles, via Czechoslovakia, to reach Cuba. . . . As Che rapped on for four hours, we fantasized taking up rifles. Growing beards. Going into the hills as guerrillas. Joining Che to create revolutions throughout Latin America. None of us looked forward to returning home to the political bullshit in the United States."

On the New Year of 1968, Jerry Rubin and Abbie Hoffman co-founded the Youth International Party. They called themselves Yippies. Their political motives were anti-establishment. When asked about their political agendas, they passed out blank sheets of paper. But the main tenet of their formation was to mobilize a freak-out at the 1968 Chicago Democratic Convention. They did not know that this freak-out, The Festival of Life, would become one of the most dramatic events of American history, let alone the most investigated case since the assassination of president Kennedy.

The Festival of Life began on August 23, 1968. On the first day, Jerry Rubin and others announced their political candidate in the Chicago Civic Center. As a lavish Yippie stunt, they brought out a pig that they had named: Pigasus the Immortal. As soon as they brought out the pig, the police arrested the demonstrators for disorderly conduct. On the same day, Yippies held classes in Lincoln Park (the concert site) to teach karate, snake dancing, and martial arts.

On August 25, 1968, the Chicago Democratic Convention clashed against the Yippies' Festival of Life. Chicago's Mayor Richard Daley had ordered an 11 p.m. curfew to keep activists from sleeping in Lincoln Park. The previous night, police clubbed people who did not adhere to the curfew. At 9 p.m. the police confronted and attacked a group of demonstrators. According to police testimony, Jerry Rubin then encouraged demonstrators to attack the cops.

The next day (August 26th), Jerry Rubin and Abbie Hoffman urged their attendants to stay at Lincoln Park. A crowd of about 3,000 people gathered that night. While singing, talking, and chanting Indian wisdom, the police attacked the concert. Non-violent activists became violent, smashing windows and destroying street lamps.

The next two days became even more riotous. The police attacked demonstrators and reporters with tear gas and clubs. Attempting to lead hundreds of people to safety, Allen Ginsberg started an aum chant and marched demonstrators away from the cops. At the end of everything, almost all of the events founders had been arrested. The government would soon indict eight members for conspiracy against the government and rioting.

On September 4th, 1969, eight collaborators of the Festival of Life stood trial before Judge Julius Hoffman in the case "United States of America vs. David T. Dellinger, et al." The defendants were Dave Dellinger (National Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam), Rennard C. Davis (Students for a Democratic Society), Thomas E. Hayden (Students for a Democratic Society), Lee Weiner (a sociology teaching assistant from Northwestern), John Froines (a chemist and member of the SDS), Bobby Seale (Black Panther Party), Abbie Hoffman (Yippie), and Jerry Rubin (Yippie). Not too far into the trial, Judge Hoffman removed Bobby Seale from the courtroom, sentencing him to four years for contempt of court. The media then labeled the case, "The Chicago Seven Trials.”

Bernadine Dohrn (Weather Underground) and Jerry Rubin (YIP) both said the following about Manson:

Dohrn: “At a 1969 “War Council” in Flint, Michigan, Dohrn gave her most memorable and notorious speech to her followers. Holding her fingers in what became the Weatherman “fork salute,” she said of the bloody murders recently committed by the Manson Family in which pregnant actress Sharon Tate and a Folgers coffee heiress and several other inhabitants of a Benedict Canyon mansion were brutally stabbed to death: “Dig it! First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them. They even shoved a fork into the victim’s stomach! Wild!” The victim of the fork attack was Sharon Tate. The “War Council ended with a formal declaration of war against “AmeriKKKa.” Always spelled with three K’s."

"Dohrn, perhaps even more notorious than Ayers, once praised mass murderer Charles Manson as a “true revolutionary” and declared, “Dope is one of our weapons."

Dohrn today is an Associate Professor at Northwestern University and the Director of the Children and Family Justice Center (nice, praised a man who murdered a pregnant woman (Sharon Tate) and now is working with families and children).

At the War Council in 1969 when the council ended with the a formal declaration of war against “AmeriKKKa” it is curiously the exact language that Rev. Wright utilized in his famous “God Damn America” speech.


"I fell in love with Charlie Manson the first time I saw his cherub face and sparkling eyes on TV."

“His words and courage inspired us" - Rubin wrote concerning Charles Manson in his book, We Are Everywhere.

“The murders perpetrated by members of Charles Manson's "Family" were inspired in part by Manson's prediction of Helter Skelter, an apocalyptic war he believed would arise from tension over racial relations between blacks and whites.

Manson had been predicting racial war for some time before he used the term Helter Skelter. His first use of the term was at a gathering of the Family on New Year's Eve 1968. This took place at the Family's base at Myers Ranch, near California's Death Valley.

In its final form, which was reached by mid-February 1969, the scenario had Manson as not only the war's ultimate beneficiary but its musical cause. He and the Family would create an album with songs whose messages concerning the war would be as subtle as those he had heard in songs of The Beatles. More than merely foretell the conflict, this would trigger it; for, in instructing "the young love," America's white youth, to join the Family, it would draw the young, white female hippies out of San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury. Black men, thus deprived of the white women whom the political changes of the 1960s had made sexually available to them, would be without an outlet for their frustrations and would lash out in violent crimes against whites. A resultant murderous rampage against blacks by frightened whites would then be exploited by militant blacks to provoke an internecine war of mutual near-extermination between racist and non-racist whites over blacks' treatment. Then the militant blacks would arise to sneakily finish off the few whites they would know to have survived; indeed, they would kill off all non-blacks.

In this holocaust, the members of the enlarged Family would have little to fear; they would wait out the war in a secret city that was underneath Death Valley that they would reach through a hole in the ground. As the only actual remaining whites upon the race war's true conclusion, they would emerge from underground to rule the now-satisfied blacks, who, as the vision went, would be incapable of running the world; Manson "would scratch [the black man's] fuzzy head and kick him in the butt and tell him to go pick the cotton and go be a good nigger...." – Wikipedia

Angela Davis and the Black Panthers:

In 1970, Davis became the third woman to appear on the FBI's Most Wanted List when she was charged with conspiracy, kidnapping, and homicide stemming from her alleged participation in an escape attempt from the Marin County Hall of Justice. It was alleged that she had helped Johnathan Jackson, younger brother of prison inmate and cause célèbre, George Jackson, plan a kidnapping in order to free the elder Jackson. The kidnapping plan went awry, resulting in the deaths of judge Harold Haley, prisoners William Christmas and James McClain, and Jonathan Jackson. The shotgun that killed Haley had been registered in her name. It was alleged by the prosecution that she provided some of the firearms and participated in the planning of the kidnapping. She evaded the police for two months before being captured. She was tried and acquitted of all charges eighteen months after her capture. Her bail was posted by a Curuthers, California farmer Rodger McAfee.

Angela Davis and Bernadine Dohrn were both on the FBI Most Wanted list at the same time in the 1970’s. J. Edgar Hoover personally stated that Dohrn was the “most dangerous woman” in the world.
