J. Edgar Hoover: “Marilyn Monroe Is a Communist!”

COMMENT: We began our odyssey into anti-fascist pol­i­tics through study of Pres­i­dent Kennedy’s assas­si­na­tion. (We’ll be updat­ing that path of inquiry later in the new year, the 50th anniver­sary of that piv­otal, hor­ri­fy­ing event.) 

After pen­e­trat­ing the offi­cial cover-up, we arrived at the for­eign and domes­tic Nazi involve­ment in the killing–that spurred our inquiry into the real his­tory and method­ol­ogy of fascism.

A side-note to the JFK hit con­cerns the death of Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe, believed by many to have been murder.

Debunk­ing the “Kennedy broth­ers did it” dis­in­for­ma­tion would require more time and effort than is war­ranted in this very busy and per­ilous time. (Suf­fice it to say that there is cred­i­ble evi­dence that JFK had an affair with Mar­i­lyn. That would NOT have resulted in her mur­der. Mem­bers of the elite have affairs, as do oth­ers, though this doesn’t occa­sion mur­der, except in excep­tional cir­cum­stances. Jackie also had affairs. Accord­ing to the late Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty, JFK gave one of Jackie’s lovers a job in the White House, in order to still any tongues that might wag.

We have long sus­pected that Marilyn’s death may well have been mur­der, intended to pro­vide poten­tial ammu­ni­tion to silence the Kennedy fam­ily if they broke silence about the President’s assassination.)

Recent par­tial dis­clo­sure of Mar­i­lyn Monroe’s FBI file reveals that J. Edgar Hoover directed the FBI to mon­i­tor the late, unfor­tu­nate Ms. Mon­roe because of her sus­pected com­mu­nist affiliations.

Appar­ently derived from her mar­riage with the lib­eral play­wright Arthur Miller and her asso­ci­a­tion with a self-exiled left­ist, this would have been more than enough to have earned Mon­roe a death sentence.

Cou­pled with Hoover’s deep hatred of the Kennedys, this alleged “com­mie” affil­i­a­tion war­rants inves­ti­ga­tion of her death as part of the coup d’etat .

Many observers have opined that, if her death was indeed mur­der, it may have been intended to pro­vide ammu­ni­tion to embar­rass the Kennedy fam­ily in the event that they cried “con­spir­acy” fol­low­ing JFK’s assassination.

Hoover’s ire toward Ms. Mon­roe may have been ampli­fied by the fact that she looked bet­ter in a dress than he did! 

“What’s Inside the FBI’s Secret File on Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe?” by Esther Zuck­er­man; The Atlantic Wire; December/2012.

EXCERPT: We know Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe the actress and Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe the sex sym­bol, but pre­vi­ously redacted FBI files obtained by the Asso­ci­ated Press now reveal a dif­fer­ent side: Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe, sus­pected communist.

Yes, the beauty — like many in Hol­ly­wood dur­ing the late 50s and early 60s — was under the watch­ful eye of J. Edgar Hoover’s orga­ni­za­tion for her left­ist ten­den­cies. And so was Arthur Miller. New details are avail­able after the FBI removed redac­tions and the AP got a hold of a ver­sion of her file through the Free­dom of Infor­ma­tion Act. Anthony McCart­ney of the AP writes Fri­day that infor­mants reported on the actress’ late-in-life “mutual infat­u­a­tion” with the self-exiled left­ist Fred­er­ick Van­der­bilt Field, whom she asso­ci­ated with while in Mex­ico in 1962 for a fur­ni­ture shop­ping trip. No one seemed to like this rela­tion­ship. The file said: “This sit­u­a­tion caused con­sid­er­able dis­may among Miss Monroe’s entourage and also among the (Amer­i­can Com­mu­nist Group in Mexico).”

The AP released a photo of one page from the FBI that comes from the file of (one of) Monroe’s husband(s), the play­wright Arthur Miller, includ­ing infor­ma­tion on an anony­mous tip to the New York Daily News in 1956 that claimed that Miller was a “CP” mem­ber and the group’s “cul­tural front man.” The fact that Miller and Monore were mar­ried in a reli­gious cer­e­mony was described as “cover up” and Mon­roe had “drifted into the Com­mu­nist orbit.” Money from Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe Pro­duc­tions was “find­ing its way into the CP” and the pro­duc­tion com­pany was “filled with Communists.” . . . .
