Has Charles Manson’s Helter Skelter Begun?

By Robert Ringer - Monday, August 26, 2013

With the racial conflict that has become increasingly prevalent since Barack Obama first took office in 2009, one is tempted to wonder if Charles Manson, the most famous mass murderer of the last half century, might have been onto something when he predicted the inevitability of an all-out race war between blacks and whites.  He referred to it as “Helter Skelter,” and was convinced that certain Beatles songs supported his prophecy.

With the race-division merchants’ failure to turn the Trayvon Martin self-defense case into the equivalent of the torture killing of fourteen-year-old Emmett Till in Mississippi in 1955, followed by a rash of black on white beatings and murders — the most recent being the cold-blooded murder of Australian Chris Lane while jogging in Duncan, Oklahoma — Helter Skelter is beginning to seem like a real possibility to a lot of nervous folks.

But I’m here to tell you that it’s not going to happen.  Don’t get me wrong — the Obama-Holder-Sharpton-Jackson hate mongers will continue to try to stir racial tensions, because it’s an incredibly profitable business.  But to their chagrin, they will ultimately find that they’re too late, because the U.S. was, for the most part, already a post-racial nation long before Obama ever snuck into office.

Today, there are millions of black doctors, psychologists, attorneys, engineers, corporate executives, professional athletes, entertainers, and, above all, middleclass families who are comfortable and contented.  I hear tell that even the president of the United States is half black.  As Larry Elder has so often said, in 21st century America, there is no excuse for a black not succeeding.

In fact, though few dare to say it out loud, everyone knows that today blacks, by and large, have more opportunity than whites.  Does anyone really believe that Oprah would have become rich and famous if she were not black?  Please, let’s get real.  Or that the Commie-in-Chief, with his radical background, no proof of a U.S. birth certificate, and just two years’ experience as a U.S. senator would have become president of the United States?  Please, let’s get real.

True, there is a disproportionate number of blacks who are poor, uneducated, and violent.  But the problem is not that they’re black.  It’s that the welfare plantation constructed by FDR and Lyndon Johnson, and now being carried to an extreme by black supremacist Barack Obama, has convinced a large percentage of blacks in the U.S. that they can’t succeed on their own and that they therefore need government to fend for them in a white-controlled society.  In other words, their failure is all by the design of the race merchants.

Just to be clear, there are also millions of whites in America who are in the same boat.  Drugs, disgusting attire and hairstyles, tattoo-covered bodies, and gang affiliations — anything that flies in the face of the Judeo-Christian ethic — are all embraced by millions of young folks, both black and white.

As a result, America’s once great society is now mired in a virtual Helter Skelter — not between the races, but between civilized and uncivilized people.  And, at this point, it appears that, at least in the short and midterm — say, the next twenty to fifty years — the uncivilized guys are destined to win.

In the book Why Johnny Can’t Tell Right from Wrong, the author compares what classroom teachers identified as the greatest threats to education in 1940 with what they identified as the greatest threats in the early 1990s:

  • The number-one concern in 1940 was talking out of turn.  In the early 1990s, it was drug abuse.
  • The number-two concern in 1940 was chewing gum in class.  In the early 1990s, it was alcohol abuse.
  • The number-three concern in 1940 was making noise.  In the early 1990s, it was teen pregnancy.
  • The number-four concern in 1940 was running in the halls.  In the early 1990s, it was suicide.
  • The number-five concern in 1940 was getting out of line.  In the early 1990s, it was rape.
  • The number-six concern in 1940 was wearing improper clothing.  In the early 1990s, it was robbery.
  • The number-seven concern in 1940 was not putting paper in the wastebasket.  In the early 1990s, it was assault.

Though I could not find a comparable list to make an item by item comparison, it’s safe to say that things are much worse today.  Which means, let’s be bluntly honest here, we are living in a moral cesspool.  That is the real issue — not warfare between the races.

Ever since I began witnessing the collapse of Western certitudes and America’s plunge into moral decadence in the 1960s, I’ve often wondered if a war between civilized and uncivilized people — having nothing to do with race — is inevitable.  Clearly, the two factions simply cannot coexist indefinitely.

If moral barbarians — those who have no soul, no values, no moral compass to guide their actions — are allowed to continue to run wild, is there any logical reason why they won’t keep pushing the envelope of relativism to the point where civilized society collapses?

It could literally become a genocidal situation where either uncivilized people increasingly kill everyone they deem to be civilized (with sort of a French Revolution flair), or civilized people awaken from their slumber and, in desperation, conclude that the only way to save Western civilization is to use brute force to stop those barbaric, uncivilized souls who are determined to destroy it.

Everything I’ve discussed in this article has to do with certitudes — with respect for a social structure that was founded on the principle of nonaggression.  The antithesis of that principle, aggression, is now embraced by half or more of the population.  Politicians will not do anything to change this sad reality, nor do they have the power to do so.  The only people who have the power to do it are everyday folks like you and me.

Thus, the all-important question is, will we?  It certainly will be interesting to witness the answer.

    The "greatest threat" in school today is "Johnny" showing up to class high on psychotropic drugs, armed with an AR-15 and hell bent on role playing his video-game fantasy.

    Regarding the shameful condition of back culture, Pat Buchanan tells it like it is:

    " Seventy-three percent of black kids are born to single moms. Black kids who make it to 12th grade may often be found reading at seventh-, eighth- or ninth-grade levels. In some cities the black dropout rate can hit as high as 50 percent.Drugs are readily available. And among black males ages 18 to 29, in urban areas, often a third are in prison or jail, or on probation or parole, or walking around with a criminal record."

    Personally, when I see a young, black man, I know that he is far more likely than a young, white man to be a street criminal, so I carefully profile him. This has saved my ass on more than one occasion. My profiling is not due to color per se., but because black culture has become so degraded. It must be duly noted, however, that lighter-skinned people tend to be school shooters.

  2. John R says:

    Well said, Reality Seeker. As Ann Coulter said about young Muslim males, it's not racial profiling, it's a suspect description.

    I 'profile' black and white kids who subscribe to the thug culture. If you dress like a punk, the you're a punk in my mind.

    If you don't want to be 'profiled' then don't subscribe to the degraded thug culture that is pushed relentlessly from the sewer of pop culture. Don't want to be seen as uncivilized? Don't act uncivilized. Pull your pants up. Lay off on the tattoos Put your hat on pointing forward and straight. Stop talking about 'bitches and hos' and 'woods'. Speak grammatically correct English. Then I won't 'profile' you. Your 'profile' is what you're putting out there, kids.

    Mr. Ringer, you said "nervous folks" in your article. Not here in Texas, we are ready.

  4. Rocketman says:

    With all due respect to you Mr. Ringer there are a few things that your not taking into account. Which do you suppose that there are more of, professional class black people or black gang bangers? Which do you think there are more of, black people who understand the need to work hard to accomplish their life goals or blacks who say to themselves "screw it, I can make more spending a half hour doing a home invasion on some rich white persons house that I would make in a week working at some fast food restaurant"? I sure hope that you are right but as time shows more and more examples I fear that you are wrong.

  5. Pitch says:

    Helter Skelter has always been a part of the human condition Robert! It is not a new phenomenon in the overall scheme of things, but however, it is especially rampant in our totally out of control American culture today. Helter Skelter has always been especially prevalent when any society is in the final stages of dying and imploding as a viable and legitimate form of a civilized society.
    America certainly meets all the criteria of such an uncivilized and swiftly failing society. Miley Cyrus certainly made that explicitly clear last night with her over the top, vulgar display of rampantly uncivilized behavior.

  6. Pitch says:

    As an example of PERSONAL Real Life Helter Skelter Robert, I submit the following certitude: I was just personally banned from making comments on Facebook for a whopping twelve (12) whole hours because of comments I made about our illustrious, Communist, fraudulent, dim witted hoax of a president Barry Soetoro (AKA Barack Hussein Obama; AKA American citizen, AKA Presidentially competent and intellectually capable of acting in the best interest of America?
    Facebook is merely the latest fraudulent government subsidized enterprise that has decided to ban free speech for special advantages and privileges of every conceivable type which are granted by our out of control dictator supreme; of course, all based on what a few special privileged elitist perceive to be in the best interest of the entire village.

  7. Pat says:

    Well said Mr. Ringer!

  8. kate says:

    very well said. But paying everyone to stay home – well, it makes people worse – time to cut everyone off, gee then the government could support itself, and if you have to work for what you have you might become a good person that can live with other people. but that's not going to happen so many of us eventually will abandon living near cities and move out to the country leaving the cities to the people with the pants falling off, tattoos, hats on backward group. I may not have liked going to church as a kid but it helped to make me a good person along with my parents help. Now most kids are raised like the free range chickens – free range kids – they learn nothing – parents used to teach their kids until their kids were in their 40's. Now the parents just want free range kids so they can be free to drink and party – great society. If no one changes it, I'm moving to somewhere where these people who are weak in my eyes are too weak to go to.

  9. Univer says:

    Charley Manson was a career criminal who felt his recording career was thwarted by a record producer who declined to sign him on the record label. Manson was not aware the record producer had moved out of his residence, and the murders that took place were intended for Terry Melcher, son of Doris Day. So in the respect of Helter Skelter, always will be career criminals with low frustration tolerance levels with low impulse control regulation that when they don't get what they want, will foment mayhem and murder. The response of civil society is to see these patterns early and channel these oh so natural inclinations of behavior into something useful vs allowing it to devolve into a moral cesspool.

  17. Along with the whole thing which seems to be building within this particular subject material, a significant percentage of perspectives happen to be quite radical. Even so, I beg your pardon, because I can not subscribe to your whole idea, all be it exciting none the less. It looks to us that your commentary are generally not entirely rationalized and in simple fact you are yourself not really entirely confident of your point. In any event I did appreciate reading it.

  29. The very root of your writing while sounding agreeable at first, did not really settle well with me after some time. Somewhere within the paragraphs you actually were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a short while. I however have a problem with your leaps in logic and you would do nicely to fill in those gaps. If you can accomplish that, I will undoubtedly end up being fascinated.
