Mason - dokončení

To Manson, the synthesis of Beatles and Bible was hardly to be questioned:
"Look at [the Beatles'] songs: songs sung all over the world by the young love; it ain't nothin' new.... It's written in... Revelation, all about the four angels programming the holocaust…the four angels looking for the fifth angel to lead the people into the pit of fire…right out to Death Valley. It's all in black and white, in The White Album - white, so there ain't no mistakin' the color..."

Abbey Road epilogue

If Manson's interest in and references to Magical Mystery Tour constituted a prologue to his focus on the White Album, there was also a kind of epilogue in the form of Family references to Abbey Road, the Beatle album that came after the White Album.
Abbey Road was released in the United Kingdom in late September 1969,[64][65][66] after the murders. By that time, most of the Family was at the group's camp in the Death Valley area, searching for the Bottomless Pit.[67] Around October 1 (the U.S. release date),[68] three Family members arrived at the camp with an advance copy of the album, which the group played on a battery-operated machine.[69]
In the second week of October, the desert redoubts were raided by law officers who found the Family with stolen vehicles, including dune buggies; Manson and several others were arrested.[70] By mid-November, when Manson had become a suspect in the Tate-LaBianca murders, Family members who had been released from jail had made their way back to Spahn Ranch.[71] There, on November 25, 1969, LAPD confiscated a door on which someone had written "Helter Skelter is coming down fast."[72]
A photograph shows the confiscated door was also inscribed with "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 -- ALL GOOD CHILDREN (Go to Heaven?)" [sic].[73] This children's rhyme is heard in "You Never Give Me Your Money," a song that appears on Abbey Road. In October 1970, the prosecution offered testimony about the door during Manson's trial for the Tate-LaBianca murders; but only the "Helter Skelter" inscription seems to have been noted.[74]
In late September or early October 1969,[75] before the arrests, Tex Watson had left the desert camp and gone on to separate himself from the Family. Late in the separation, he, too, bought a cassette recording of Abbey Road. Walking for miles across the desert to rejoin the Family in late October, he played his tape continuously to see what The Beatles might have to tell him. When, at the last moment, he turned back, an old prospector informed him the arrests had taken place. Watson returned to his native Texas, where his own arrest, for the Tate-LaBianca murders, occurred a month later.[76]
In late July 1970, while Manson was on trial, three persons were hacked, two fatally, on the beach near Santa Barbara, California. One of the Manson girls spoke of this incident as "Maxwell's Silver Hammer," an Abbey Road song that plainly is about homicidal madness.[77]


Tex Watson, who, as noted above, was with Manson when Manson first heard the White Album, took part in both the Tate murders and the LaBianca murders. Indeed, in his own recounting of the crimes, he is the only killer to participate directly in every one of the seven homicides and is the sole killer of at least three of the victims.[103][104] While awaiting trial, he told other Family members, "It seemed like I had to do everything."[105]
On the late 1968 day he and Manson first heard the album, Watson separated himself from the Family,[89] which he did not rejoin until the following March (1969). By that time, Manson's prophecy had captured the group's imagination; but Watson would be a while in grasping its details. In his 1978 autobiography (as told to Ray Hoekstra), he wrote as follows:
Although I got it in bits and pieces, some from the women and some from Manson himself, it turned out to be a remarkably complicated yet consistent thing that he [Manson] had discovered and developed in the three months we'd been apart.
It was exciting, amazing stuff Charlie was teaching, and we'd sit around him for hours as he told us about the land of milk and honey we'd find underneath the desert and enjoy while the world above us was soaked in blood.
Addendum: First public mention

What is apparently the earliest public mention of Helter Skelter seems to have been made unwittingly. In an article that appeared in the Los Angeles Times on Sunday, December 14, 1969, is the following:
Then they [i.e., the killers in the LaBianca house] wrote helter-skelter in the people's blood on the refrigerator: "Death to All Pigs" - or something to that effect.
As can be seen, the word helter-skelter, as it appears in that sentence, is neither capitalized nor in quotation marks. It is being used in its ordinary sense, to indicate that "'Death to All Pigs' - or something to that effect" was written helter-skelter, i.e., in confused, disorderly haste. There is no indication - no apparent awareness on the part of the author - that the word helter-skelter itself was written at the LaBianca house.
The newspaper article, a detailed account of the Tate-LaBianca murders, was entitled "Susan Atkins' Story of 2 Nights of Murder." It was ghost-written by Los Angeles Times reporter Jerry Cohen,[111] whose main source was an audio recording of statements Atkins had made to her attorney on December 1.[112] When police gave details of the LaBianca murders to the press, nothing was said about the "healter [sic] skelter" that had been written in blood on the refrigerator door; that detail was not made public.[113] Accordingly, Cohen, in listening to the audio tape, seems to have had no reason to think Atkins was using helter-skelter in an unusual way. He wrote what he heard: that the killers "wrote helter-skelter" - not that they "wrote 'Helter Skelter.'"

Leno and Rosemary LaBianca - the murders

Charles Manson, the leader of the Manson "family," orchestrated the murders for the sake of Helter Skelter, an apocalyptic war he believed would arise from tension over racial relations between blacks and whites. Displeased with the previous night's messy events at the Tate residence, Manson insisted on accompanying the next Helter Skelter mission, which he scheduled for August 10. The four "family" members who had participated in the Tate murders, Charles "Tex" Watson, Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel and Linda Kasabian, were again summoned by Manson along with Leslie Van Houten and Steve "Clem" Grogan. Manson ordered Kasabian to cruise the neighborhoods of Los Angeles, in search of potential victims, before settling on the home of the LaBiancas.[4] Manson had a previous connection to Waverly Drive. In March 1968, Manson and other "family" members had attended a party at the home of Harold True. True's house was located at 3267 Waverly Drive, next door to 3301 Waverly Drive, the LaBianca's house.[5]
Sometime during the early morning hours of August 10, 1969, Manson family members entered the LaBianca house. Manson and Watson awoke a sleeping Leno LaBianca, on the couch in his living room, at gunpoint. Leno was assured by Manson and Watson that he would not be hurt and that they only intended to rob him. Manson removed a leather thong from his neck and had Watson use it to tie up Leno's hands. Leno was then asked if there was anyone else in the house. He told Manson and Watson that his wife, Rosemary, was in the bedroom.[2] Manson went to the bedroom and awoke Rosemary. He allowed her to put a dress on over her nightgown before leading her into the living room where Watson had Leno tied up. Manson and Watson reassured the couple that they wouldn't be hurt, and were just being robbed. After collecting all the cash in the house, Manson ordered Watson to take Rosemary back to her bedroom where Watson placed a pillowcase over her head and wound a lamp around her head, gagging her with a lamp cord. He told her to stay quiet and remain in the room. Watson returned to the living room and Manson then left the house. Within a few minutes, Leslie Van Houten and Patricia Krenwinkel entered the residence and were instructed by Watson to go to the bedroom.[1]
Watson then began stabbing Leno repeatedly, only stopping briefly when Leno screamed, "Stop stabbing me!" Rosemary, hearing her husband screaming, began screaming and flailing around the room, still blinded by the pillowcase on her head. Krenwinkel and Van Houten called Watson for help. Watson left the badly bleeding Leno in the living room, and entered the bedroom to find Rosemary swinging the lamp still attached to the chord used to gag her. Tex lunged forward and stabbed her until she fell to the floor. By the time the stabbing ended, Watson, Krenwinkel, and Van Houten had stabbed Rosemary 41 times.[1]
Leno was still alive when Watson came back to the living room and the stabbing resumed. After Watson finished stabbing Leno, one of the family members carved the word "WAR" into Leno's stomach. Krenwinkel then stabbed him a number of times and left a carving fork protruding from his stomach, and a steak knife from his throat. The girls then wrote messages in Leno's blood. "Death to pigs" and "Rise" were written on the living room wall, and "Healter Skelter" [sic] was written on the refrigerator.[1]
After the murders, the family members remained at the house. Some ate food from the LaBianca's refrigerator, played with the couple's dogs and showered before hitchhiking back to the Spahn Ranch.

Překlad ve zkratce:

Charles Mason koncem 60. let si zřídil komunitu svých lidí, kteří si říkali "Masonova rodina." Mason měl šílený plán jakési apokalyptické války bílých proti barevným, resp. rasistům proti ne-rasistům. Zaštiťovali se Biblí a texty písní Beatles. Jeho skupina provedla řadu brutálních vražd, mj. herečku Sharon Tate zavraždili krátce před porodem, nebo spáchali krvavý masakr v domě rodiny LaBianca. Charles Mason byl nejprve odsouzen k trestu smrti, později mu byl změněn na doživotí.

Můj komentář:

Pokud vím, Charles Mason stále žije a další projednávání jeho případu u soudu by mělo proběhnout roku 2012 - pokud se tedy dožije, bude mu 78 let.
Tak mně jen tak napadlo, že to možná není shoda náhod, že zrovna na ten rok Mayové předpověděli konec světa.............................

Nicméně Beatles byli spojováni s okultismem v lepším, se satanismem horším případě hned od počátků - jejich fenomenální úspěch se zdál tak neuvěřitelný, že se zdálo, že se museli - tak jako Faust - upsat Ďáblu. Navíc různé narážky a symboly v jejich písních vedly jak k hledání těchto temných "důkazů", tak fámě "Paul is dead". Beatles však, na rozdíl od Rolling Stones (kteří se tím ani netajili), k těmto věcem nikdy neinklinovali, a o většině "narážek" ani sami nevěděli, dokud se o nich nedozvěděli zvenčí...
Výjimkou bylo indické náboženství, kterému propadl zvlášt George - ale to už je jiná kapitola.

Jako příklad takového možného vysvětlení mně teď napadly písně Rain a Gnick Nus - v obou se záměrně zpívá text pozpátku. Zatímco většina normálních lidí v tom vidí jen prostě hříčku, stejně jako když si "hráli se" s různými zvuky, lidé pídící se po senzacích nebo lidé nějak narušení v tom mohou vidět důkaz, že Beatles vyznávali satanismus; satanisti se totiž mj. modlí křesťanskými modlitbami citovanými pozpátku, aby tak místo Boha oslovili jeho Protějšek...
Ovšem pokud bude člověk hledat takové symboly, najde je v čemkoli, a zrovna tak si satanistické apod. poselství může přečíst "mezi řádky" třeba dnešních sportovních novin. A to už opravdu zavání šílenstvím...
