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.” . . . .
