The real meaning of Obama's Ayers-Dohrn-Manson connection; Helter-Skelter;
We have heard much this year about Obama and his connection with William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn (and the Weather Underground terrorist group) despite the MSM/DNC blackout on this subject. But we have not heard much about Dohrn's endorsement of Charles Manson and the Manson gang's 1969 murder spree. Frontpage fills in some details:
In 1969, Ayers and his wife convened a "War Council" in Flint Michigan, whose purpose was to launch a military front inside the United States with the purpose of helping Third World revolutionaries conquer and destroy it. Taking charge of the podium, dressed in a high-heeled boots and a leather mini-skirt – her signature uniform – Dorhn incited the assembled radicals to join the war against "Amerikkka" and create chaos and destruction in the "belly of the beast." Her voice rising to a fevered pitch, Dohrn raised three fingers in a "fork salute" to mass murderer Charles Manson whom she proposed as a symbol to her troops. Referring to the helpless victims of the Manson Family as the "Tate Eight" (the most famous was actress Sharon Tate) Dohrn shouted:Dig It. First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, they even shoved a fork into a victim’s stomach! Wild!
[This would not be the last time that the Weather Underground and its leaders would advocate violence and revolution.]
Charles Manson - original dealer of the race card.
This is not just "another bad thing" that Dohrn and Ayers did [that Obama will claim no responsibility for despite his alliance with those two people]. My point is not simply that "Dohrn is bad, and Obama should not be her friend" [although that is quite a legitimate point]. Dohrn's endorsement of Manson means much more than that. Dohrn's endorsement of Manson is symbolic of the race war that the left has promoted for decades.
Manson used the term "Helter Skelter" to describe his goals at the time of the murders. "Helter Skelter" now has many meanings, as individuals have used the term to describe generally chaotic situations. But Manson had a specific meaning in mind. He planned to use the killing spree to ignite a race war.
Bernardine Dohrn - "Dig it."
Manson believed that the Tate murders would be blamed on black people and that whites would retaliate, thus sparking a race war, resulting in the death of all whites (except for Manson and his gang, who would be in hiding). Manson would then be free to emerge from hiding and rule the black people that remained. According to witness testimony, Manson's plans for the African-American were quite clear:
Charlie would scratch his fuzzy head and kick him in the butt and tell him to go pick the cotton and go be a good nigger, and he would live happily ever after . . .
What does this have to do with the election of 2008? The left has promoted race hostility in every election (including this one), and in every issue, for decades. Since the O.J. trial, the tactic has been called, "playing the race card." But the practice began much earlier than that.
In short, the left and the MSM/DNC have been trying, over the course of several decades, to do what Manson wanted to do with a brief murder spree. The left has simply found a more effective and less obvious way of carrying out those plans. Manson is locked up and forgotten as the deranged psychopath that he was, but the left moves toward the same goals (using slower and surer means). While those on the left (except for Dohrn/Ayers) may not appreciate all that they share with Manson (or even know who he is), the similar goals do exist.

More specifically, we saw what plans Manson had for the African-Americans that would emerge victorious from Manson's Helter Skelter race war. The question now arises, what plans does Manson's admirer Bernardine Dohrn have for Barack Obama, now that Obama is apparently poised to seize power in America? How do Dohrn and Ayers really view Obama? While Manson most likely did not let any African-Americans in on his plans in 1969, did Dohrn share her goals with Obama during Obama's rise to power? Who is the follower and who is the leader? Remember that Ayers and Dohrn are not simply radicals who live in Obama's neighborhood. Ayers and Dohrn were instrumental in Obama's rise to power and the funding of his early activities and campaigns, including Obama's association with ACORN. Is Bernardine Dohrn set to fulfill Charles Manson's vision as a result of this week's election? Only time will tell.
