Charles Manson Breaks 20-Year Silence to Talk Global Warming

News

"I'm everything bad."

Cult leader and convicted murderer Charles Manson has broken a 20-year silence to give a jailhouse interview. But don't expect any coherent opining. Instead, Manson gave a confusing, rambling interview to Vanity Fair Spain Magazine in which he criticized President Obama and spoke out against global warming.

The Daily Mail has Manson's quotes:

'Everyone’s God and if we don’t wake up to that there’s going to be no weather because our polar caps are melting because we’re doing bad things to the atmosphere.

'If we don’t change that as rapidly as I’m speaking to you now, if we don’t put the green back on the planet and put the trees back that we’ve butchered, if we don’t go to war against the problem...' he added, trailing off.

Manson, who described himself to his interviewer as a 'bad man who shoots people', brainwashed members of a commune known as The Family into butchering eight people including film director Roman Polanski’s pregnant wife Sharon Tate in July and August 1969.

[...]

Interspersing English with Spanish, he added: 'I’m very mal hombre, nasty.

'I’m in the bullring. I run in the bullring with the heart of the world.'

'I don’t play. I shoot people.

'I’m too bad. I’m a mean guy. I’m an outlaw. I’m a criminal. I’m everything bad.'

The 76-year-old Manson hasn't given in interview since 1987. The year will mark the 40th anniversary of his conviction.

Besides speaking out against global warming, Manson also took time to criticize President Obama. According to him, Obama is a "slave" to Wall Street.

"I think Obama is an idiot for doing what he’s doing," he said. "They’re playing with him."
