In the last interview before her death, Marilyn pleaded unsucessfully with a reporter to end his article like this:
"What I really want to say: That what the world really needs is a real feeling of kinship. Everybody: stars, labourers, Negroes, Jews, Arabs. We are all brothers. Please don't make me a joke. End the interview with what I believe."
The media failed to report what Marilyn Monroe really believed and that she was a caring, intelligent, compassionate civil rights advocate who was targeted, not by the Kennedys, but by J. Edgar Hoover’s Mafia cohorts.
Marilyn Monroe was in fact a bona fide civil rights activist. She was not your typical, Paula Jones lackey, who who relies upon an army of ignorant advocates to create the bogus impression that Jones versus Clinton was a Federal, civil rights action. Why can’t the media ever get it right?
We’re not talking rocket science. Marilyn Monroe was a public figure whose entire life was an open book. In 1960, she sponsored SANE, the Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy. Her strong feelings for civil rights, for black equality and for peace, were well known to anybody who bothered to report the truth. But one would never guess the fact that she was a fierce target of every red-baiter in town, given the fairy tale existence that the media promoted. The media has in fact oblitherated the gap between ignorant rumor and fact, to the point where the truth is difficult to recognize. For example, how many people are aware of the fact that Marilyn Monroe and Joe Dimmagio were planning a wedding just before she was murdered?
Red-baiting zealots are responsible for the murder of Marilyn Monroe, and there was certainly no love lost between her and the ignorant zealots who had targeted her. In her own words, "some of those bastards in Hollywood wanted me to drop Arthur. Said it would ruin my career. They're born cowards and want you to be like them. One reason I want to see Kennedy win is that Nixon's assocoiated with that whole scene". In the end, those "bastards" murdered Marilyn Monroe but her legacy still shines brighter than ever.
