Somebody go wake up Satan, he’s got another guest coming for Thanksgiving. TMZ reports that Charles Manson has finally stopped sucking air. TMZ says the late Sharon Tate’s sister Debra Tate received the call confirming that Charles finally kicked the bucket.
Debra Tate tells TMZ she received a call from the prison telling her Manson died 8:13pm Sunday. We’re told the prison is contacting all of the victims’ families. Manson died of natural causes, according to prison officials.
Charles Manson, the charismatic cult leader who was imprisoned for orchestrating the brutal murders of Sharon Tate, her unborn child and six others over a two night period in 1969, will be missed by no one. His original death sentence was ruled unconstitutional in 1971 and he was given 9 consecutive life sentences instead. That loser could barely manage one. Lame!
In life, Charles Manson was a terrorist who manipulated people’s weakness and insecurities into doing his bidding and who held the nation hostage using our own darkest fears against us. After his arrest, conviction, and incarceration, he became a punchline. In death he is, in his own words, “nobody“. Well, nobody except for the odd time when someone gets curious and researches the origin of Marilyn Manson’s stage name.
The fog of rancor and divisiveness and the disrespect shown to our fellow citizens in #thesetryingtimes is enough to make a person lose track of some of the things that bind and unite us as a nation. In an age where there are people propping up pedophiles or defending alleged rapists, it’s nice to know there is one thing we can all agree on: Charles Manson was a evil mother fucker and we’re glad he’s gone.
