The truth is that Charles Manson is an Environmentalist and Musician. He is also the creator of ATWA (Air Trees Water Animals) an environmental group. The fact that people think Charles Manson is a brainwasher is ironic because of the fact that those people were brainwashed into thinking that by the media, the very people who labelled Charlie as one.
He also has a large mass of supporters. Half of the supporters support him because they believe he is a murderer. And the other half follow him because he is innocent and for his views on the environment.

Manson Supporter: Mabye he's crazy because he's been locked in a cell practicaly all his life. Either that or he's just trying to scare the masses.
