Where do I even begin with this one? There are so many complex layers with Manson, the Beatles and a conspiracy to reprogram the minds of teens in the 1960’s. I think it’s best to stick to the heart of the matter which is the mind control triggers that were implanted in the songs of the, “White Album” – more specifically – “Helter Skelter”

It is a known fact that Charles Manson was obsessed with the Beatles. He played their records dozens of times, over and over and over but even with that much repetitious play, there were certain people in his “Family”, that claimed that they were not hearing the same lyrics he was. They took that as a sign that Charlie was a prophet.

During a chimerical vision, Charles saw an apocalyptic race war coming. A war between black America and white America. He believed that once he and his Family released an empowering album they were working on, white female hippies would leave San Francisco and join him. As a result of that, black men, who were then free to fornicate with white woman due to the free love movement going on back in the 60’s, would then become so deprived, they would turn their frustrations on the rest of white America and then racists and non-racists whites would kill each other. Meanwhile, he and his followers would move to an underground city, hidden under Death Valley (a route to this place was also encoded in the song apparently), where they would stay until the blacks had wipe out all the whites who lived on the surface. This would be his moment to lead the remaining white people back to the surface where they would reclaim America (because blacks would not be able to maintain it) and send blacks, who were not killed, back to Africa – and they lived happily ever after…

This message was delivered to his people on New Year’s Eve, 1968 – and he called this event, “Helter Skelter”.  This is what he had understood from the Beatles song:



What They Said: When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide/ Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride

What He Heard: A reference to the Family’s emergence from “the Bottomless Pit,” the underground Death Valley hideaway where the group will escape the violence of Helter Skelter

What They Said: Look out… Helter Skelter… She’s coming down fast… Yes she is.

What He Heard: The upcoming explosion of race-based violence is imminent. These are the “last few months, weeks, perhaps days, of the old order.”  In My Life with Charles Manson, Paul Watkins, makes clear Manson construed “she” as a reference to the words “helter skelter” themselves. It is Helter Skelter—which, in America, at least, can be the noun “confusion” —that is coming down fast, i.e., is imminent.

When Charles Manson’s album never came to fruition, the prophecy was not fulfilled. It was all supposed to go down the summer of 1969. Charles still convinced that Helter Skelter was ready had this to say: “Blackie never did anything without whitey showin’ him how,” he said. “It looks like we’re gonna have to show blackie how to do it.”

On August 8, 1969, the day Manson instructed his followers to carry out the first of two sets of notorious murders, he told the Family, “Now is the time for Helter Skelter.” When the murderers returned to Spahn Ranch, the Family’s Los Angeles area headquarters, after the crime, Manson asked Tex Watson, the sole man among them, whether it had been Helter Skelter. “Yeah, it was sure Helter Skelter,” Watson replied.

At the conclusion of the second set of murders, the following night, one of the killers wrote “Healter Skelter” on the refrigerator of the house in which the murders took place. That, along with other references to Beatles songs, was written in blood.

Now here’s another connection. Manson’s family murdered Tanya Tate, who was married to, infamous European director, Roman Polanksi. Polanksi was very close to the Beatles who in return were very fond of both Roman and Tanya. They expressed shock and sorrow over the tragedy and were disgusted by Charles Manson and what he did to their music.

I do believe that hidden triggers were implanted into key songs on the White Album because just one look at Manson’s childhood, there is no doubt that he was being programmed (everything from abandonment, no father figure and extreme sexual abuse at a correctional facility for boys).

One last thing…Charles believed that what he was hearing was absolutely true based on one solid nail in the coffin…the album was called “White”…in his mind, there was no other color to be.
