Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 21, 2017

This happened about four years ago, when I became the last member of the so-called establishment media to see Manson in the flesh, at his last home, Corcoran State Prison, in California. It took over a year to set the meeting up, with Manson calling me collect whenever the urge struck him. He'd typically start by saying no way would he ever agree to a visit.

"You're a stooge, man," he'd growl. "A flunky. I only meet people like you when I'm going to rob them. I'll take you. Put you in the grave. What're you going to do about that, jitterbug?"

Sometimes he'd slam the phone down on me, then ring me right back and say, "Now was I mad at you or was you mad at me?" Then he'd go on to call me "sweetheart," and "honey" and say stuff like, "Yeah, man, you didn't know you was my wife? Hey, I recognize you."

And then, finally, often as not, he'd start ranting about the environment and how we're running out of oxygen and how the only way to conserve oxygen is by killing off our fellow air breathers.

"Whoever gets killed, that's the will of God. Without killing, we got no chance." Pause. "You might want to say to yourself, 'How can that work for me?'"

After which, he'd start calling me "soldier," like I was a soldier in his army and he wanted me to go out and kill on his behalf, just as Leslie Van Houton, Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkle, and Tex Watson did back in 1969, which ended with all of them going to prison for life."

The journalist's account gets a little weird after that... something about how Manson touching him seemed to relieve his fear of being touched. Yow!

Manson the faith healer? that is so wrong on every level I can think of.

Should have just executed him decades ago.

Manson was a idiot with a motor mouth.

Manson was a nobody who was desperate to be a somebody. In a twisted sort of way I guess he achieved his goal.
