Have you ever watched the original "Matrix" movie? It took me 5 viewings of the "Matrix" before I had a good handle on the entire plot and story line. Such was my experience with this article. There's a LOT to unpack here. The article is very condensed. It weaves together Laurence Merrick, Sharon Tate, Roman Polanski, RFK, Sirhan Sirhan, The Process Church, Vincent Bugliosi, The Jewish State, Ed Butler, Ed Sanders... and more. My head was literally spinning. I'm not saying the article is particularly bad or inaccurate. There's several accurate quotes and references included. But it moves quickly with several twists and turns. If you're a conspiracy theory junkie, you'll be pleased.
The article takes some liberties of presumption which are beyond my personal comfort level, but I'll allow you to formulate your own opinion.
Without re-writing the entire article, here are some bullet points which best summarize the main thrust:
*Sylbert, with Frankenheimer, would volunteer to assist the Robert Kennedy presidential campaign. Tate, too, “had become very interested in the Presidential campaign of Robert Kennedy,” relates The Official Sharon Tate Website: “She went to fund raising dinners in support of Kennedy and […] attended a dinner at the home of John Frankenheimer. At the dinner was Robert Kennedy and his wife Ethel. Sharon was thrilled to be able to spend some time with Kennedy and felt even more convinced that he would make a wonderful president.”
*Ed Sanders has indicated that Tate’s murder may have been carried out as part of the cover-up of the truth of the RFK assassination, revealing in Sharon Tate: A Life that Sirhan was reported by the Immigration and Naturalization Service to have been “attending parties on behalf of the Satanist English cult [the Process Church], including one at Sharon Tate’s place.” Sanders points to a possible motivation starkly at odds with Vincent Bugliosi’s propagation of the legend of Charles Manson’s apocalyptic “Helter Skelter” war: “INS criminal investigator Richard Smith’s report stated that an LA law enforcement agency had a female informant who averred that the English Satanist group had commissioned Manson to kill Sharon Tate,” Sanders writes: “The reason for the contract […] was ‘something that she unfortunately overheard that she was not supposed to overhear either in regards to Sirhan Sirhan or about Sirhan Sirhan.’”
*Robert Hendrickson, Merrick’s collaborator on the 1973 Manson documentary – a production with which the prosecutor cooperated and in which he appears onscreen – stated in a 2012 interview that Bugliosi, Merrick, and Joan Huntington “all became close friends”, which invites speculation as to whether Merrick suggested or helped to shape Bugliosi’s “Helter Skelter” legend or if the premise of Merrick’s Black Angels movie furnished the inspiration for Bugliosi’s narrative. It was Merrick, Hendrickson reveals, who “arranged access for Manson to grab the newspaper and show the jury the headline, ‘Manson Guilty Nixon Declares’,” arguing that “Merrick was also being sucked into being, not just a filmmaker, but also a participant in a historical event.” Was Merrick, in helping to shape the public perception of the Tate-LaBianca killings, playing a part in the cover-up of the RFK assassination – perhaps as an agent of the state of Israel?
