Charlie Manson and Star: A love story

posted at 5:01 pm on November 24, 2013 by Jazz Shaw

I know what you’re thinking… a Charles Manson story? I agree that Manson has been on the shelf for far too long to be of interest. He really can’t do or even say anything shocking anymore which is worthy of note. But something crossed the desk this week which caught my attention relating to the long confined madman. Charlie has another great love in his life (at least in her mind, anyway) and she’s a 25 year old fan of his who he named Star. And in Star’s mind – or what remains of it – the two of them will soon be man and wife.

Serial killer Charles Manson is to marry his 25-year-old girlfriend behind bars, she has claimed.

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the young woman who calls herself “Star,” tells the world that she is to be the next bride of the 79-year-old.
“I’ll tell you straight up, Charlie and I are going to get married,” she told Rolling Stone magazine. “When that will be, we don’t know. But I take it very seriously. Charlie is my husband. Charlie told me to tell you this. We haven’t told anybody about that.

This apparently came as news to Charlie.

Manson, who has been married twice before, denied the claim of marriage.

“That’s a bunch of garbage. You know that, man. That’s trash. We’re just playing that for public consumption,” he told Rolling Stone. He also revealed that he was bisexual.

Manson said: “Sex to me is like going to the toilet. Whether it’s a girl or not, it doesn’t matter.”

Again, I don’t find Manson himself all that newsworthy anymore, but in this case it’s his young devotee who makes the story. Her “reasoning” (for lack of a better word) for falling head over heels for Charlie is only the beginning of this case study in lost children. She loves him, you see, because Manson is all about the planet… the air, the trees, the flowing streams. You know… nature, baby.

Star told the magazine she became enchanted with Manson’s environmental stance, which he calls ATWA — air, trees, water, air — when she was only 19…

“People can think I’m crazy,” she said. “But they don’t know. This is what’s right for me. This is what I was born for.”

Those short quotes simply don’t do enough to paint the full picture of Star, though. She could be just any lost, confused, kid if that’s all you have to go by. To get the full impact of why this story rose up high enough in the stack to merit a mention here, we need to go to the video.

I was chatting with Ed about this story earlier this weekend, and the only way we could come up with to describe her was to say that, if she is sane – and that’s a huge “if” – she sounds like some sort of escaped refugee from a cloistered, liberal commune who has had virtually no exposure to the outside world. And then somebody told her about Manson and she decided to break out and strike up a pen pal relationship with him. She’s frightening and yet fascinating to watch. What could have possibly happened to this child which led her to wind up in this dark place?

Oh, and in closing, even the image of her in the video (which is apparently a bit dated) won’t convey the full imagery without a more recent picture, so here you go. And… you’re welcome.

Actually it tells you more about the California Penal System that would allow that abomination to do anything other than watch the paint dry on the wall of his cell.

California wants to cut some red out of their state’s deficit they should fire up an electric chair and start cleaning out death row.

Huh. I wonder if she’ll take his surname like that slightly less creepy Marilyn chick he married in the 90s.

she sounds like some sort of escaped refugee from a cloistered, liberal commune who has had virtually no exposure to the outside world.

Her name is “Star.” What do you think?

By the way she sucks at swastikas. I’m actually very surprised there isn’t a government program to help her with that.

Everybody keeps referring to the X she has on her forehead and says she should have a swastika. Manson originally wore a X on his forehead during his trial, along with his “Manson Girls” and other “family” members. It wasn’t until the early 80s that Manson changed the X into a swastika.

Tilly on November 24, 2013 at 5:12 PM

It’s not just the monetary cost. Every year when this maggot comes up for parole, members of the victim’s families are forced to appear and sit through the parole hearing and repeat year after year their reasons for objecting to releasing this POS. This effectively forces these people to re-live the murders over and over and over…

Think about that.

Women like her, and there are thousands of them, have a need for attention. And they get a ton of it. They have all these support groups and the media is always after them. All the guys on death row get girlfriends and wives. Women just throw themselves at them.

Manson WAS sentenced to die. But of course, the “caring Liberals” — who governed Kalifornia at the time — decided that executing a man who organized and directed multiple murders shouldn’t be subjected to “cruel and unusual punishment”. Can’t recall what year his sentence was commuted to life, but it WAS a Liberal that did it.

oldleprechaun on November 24, 2013 at 9:27 PM

He also revealed that he was bisexual.

Yeah, I’d say so, after several decades in prison.

oldleprechaun on November 24, 2013 at 9:27 PM

California v. Anderson (1972), a fine bit of ex post facto legislating from the bench that both commuted any pending death sentences AND offered at least the theoretical opportunity for parole – leftist activism that served to benefit such wonderful names in American history as Charles Manson and Sirhan Sirhan. Isn’t liberalism grand?

In fairness to the people of California, their elected government (they had a particularly good Governor at the time) promptly reinstated the death penalty by referendum later that year, but the damage was already done.

Gingotts on November 25, 2013 at 1:34 AM

Manson was one of the first eco-terrorists. Even before the murders, he was all about destroying earth moving machinery. (In fact, if it wasn’t for an arrest for destroying some equipment, they might have been able to murder more people)

oldleprechaun on November 24, 2013 at 9:27 PM

Manson was sentenced to death; however, in 1972 in Furman vs. Georgia the US Supreme Court ruled that the death penalty was arbitrarily and capriciously applied, with individual judges determining the penalty. This led to a moratorium on the death penalty across the country and those sentenced to death prior to the Furman decisin had their sentences overturned. The overturning of Manson’s death sentence had nothing to do with the Manson case. Most states then went to bifurcated trials in death penalty cases, with the jury having to vote unanimously first on guilt and then on whether to sentence to death. Judges can overrule jury-determined death sentences but cannot overrule if a jury decides against the death penalty.

Trafalgar on November 25, 2013 at 9:37 AM

And by the way, Ronald Reagan was governor of California at the time. Not my idea of a “caring liberal” but thats just me!

Trafalgar on November 25, 2013 at 9:40 AM

Amazing California.
The expenditure on the part of state taxpayers will shock (no, really SHOCK) the few remaining taxpayers in Kalifornia when this sphincter gets parole. And make no mistake there are more than a few ‘groups’ working toward his parole and eventual release.
And the costs of their death row confinees is due to the legislature.
This Manson thing was of course Nixon’s fault.
It is the ONLY reason Charlie’s still above room temperature and the grass.
In places like China they would have dispatched Charles with a 7 cent bullet to the back of the head … and charged his family for the projectile.

Odd that it’s Nixon’s fault when the four dissensions in Furman vs. Georgia were Chief Justice Burger and Justices Harry Blackmun, Lewis F. Powell, and William H. Rehnquist – all Nixon appointees to the Supreme Court.
