Newsweek connects Charles Manson and Donald Trump


Serial killer Charles Manson has died, so it was probably inevitable that Democrats would try to connect him–somehow!–with Donald Trump. It was Newsweek that did the dirty deed: “HOW MURDERER CHARLES MANSON AND DONALD TRUMP USED LANGUAGE TO GAIN FOLLOWERS.” I suppose they could have written, “HOW MURDERER CHARLES MANSON AND BARACK OBAMA USED LANGUAGE TO GAIN FOLLOWERS.” But they didn’t.

The death of cult leader and convicted murderer Charles Manson resurfaces tales from his twisted family’s killing spree after nearly four decades. Manson orchestrated the brutal deaths of actress Sharon Tate and six other innocent people in the 1960s according to historical reports, which leave many wondering how he convinced followers, made up of a former Sunday school teacher, a church choir singer and a one-time homecoming princess, into committing such brutal acts.

Just a bunch of all-American, drug-addled mass murderers!

It would be hard to find two people born in the U.S. in the 20th century with less in common than Charles Manson and Donald Trump. Nevertheless, Newsweek absurdly tries to tie them together:

According to psychoanalyst Mark Smaller, past president of the American Psychoanalytic Association, part of Manson’s power lay in the type of language he used. Notably, Manson was able to speak in a way that engaged those who felt marginalized or alienated.

In reality it was Obama’s words that inspired his cult following to commit violence against innocent people, attempting to incite a race war. Obama was quite a bit more successful at this than Manson, but then again Manson never studied Alinsky.

But, liberal media… what are you going to do?

Newsreek more of their lies Manson was a Big Time Enviromentalists as well as a cult leader if Manson was like anybody he would be like Satan

I suppose we can expect any unflattering fear mongering comparison to keep people divided they can think of.
