    It took long enough for that monster to die…

      Not as long as Robert Mugabe or George Soros, so maybe he wasn’t quite as anointed as that pair…

    I won’t jump for joy over any man’s death. Instead I’ll just try to forget he ever existed.

      I’ll do the jumping for you.

    Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn request that their privacy be respected during the trying time.

    Whilst it’s enjoyable that this piece of shit finally died, I should point out that technically he never killed anyone. If his suggesting his followers to commit crimes was mass murder, the same measure should be applied to the SPLC and they should be charged with the same crime.

      Some called Manson the “poor man’s Hitler”, because he had his drug-addled followers commit the crimes on his orders. Like Hitler, Manson has his victims’ blood on his hands because he put his underlings up to their grisly tasks, and oversaw the whole affair.

      The Manson cult’s rampage boggles the mind not only because of the horrific nature of the crimes, but how a pack of kids followed the insane ramblings of a mangy, disturbed man, and in the end, were more than willing to torture and kill for his ideology.

    I think once again Bill Whittle has the final say on this matter.
