After some traveling around the United States for some time Rev, Jim Jones finally landed in San Francisco, where his (church) was to thrive amoung the LiberaL Progressives. Jones's church Known as the Peoples Temple......Jones convinced so many that he was the one to lead them to a better life and all they had to do was to follow him in every way... In the final act of insanity he lead almost one thousand people to an island called GUYANNA and set up "JONESTOWN"

.He was a real community organizer, and people were mesmerized by him.....Jones was a very accomplished speaker and was soon able to attract some influential people..at least at first......

..I hope that any one who has not read the story of this man ,would take the time to learn about him.......It boils done to a man with good speaking skills and the ability to convince people that he would think for them, and take care of them , Jones had an ego that was enormous and of course that, along with drugs in the end was his down fall.....Rev. Jim Jones is a perfect example of what happens when you turn your life,money, mind and soul over to one human being......It never turns out good.. Congressman Ryan and four reporters were killed that last day trying to rescue
them.

    I told someone on youtube yesterday that it is the most insane thing man can do to totally rely on man (govt) to meet all their needs. He was totally clueless as to what i meant.

    Obama has that "cult of personality" that will lead to an end, maybe not lives in a suicide, but country.

    Fanatical followers of Obama abound here on SH, I read the parroted talking points every day. It's really pretty sad when common sense is subjugated to an emotion, a slogan, speech or the idea of "making" history over substance.

    yes, the parallels between Rev Jim Jones and Imam Obama are very similar indeed.

    He was a sick puppy, and it's probably best not to compare such a psychopath to anyone of any political persuasion, barring it is another obvious psychopath.

    It IS clear that his colony was liberal in many regards... but that may have just been a reflection of the culture of the moment in the Bay Area where most of them originated.

    This question isnt about asking if Jones was insane or not........its about seeing how many liberals are not willing or able to think for them selves ,and they are looking for some one else to take care of them...ie JIM Jones and the way many liberals are blindly following Obama

    And this is a bad thing ,why?
    We need more Liberal cultist like Jim Jones to convince the masses of Liberals to drink the special Kool-Aid.
    If your not smart enough to make it through life on your own suicide is always an option.
    No man does my thinking for me.

    SHUDDER ..
    (I remember this well .. the entirety .. from the establishment of the megachurch in the USA to the way he demanded those in that cult sacrifice all to belong .. then established that isolated site .. it was a prison that the ones there were AFRAID to leave .. )
    (and I remember the ones who flew down there and LOST THEIR LIVES trying to save the few who courageously decided to leave with them) ..

    This MONSTER ..
    this Beast .. was so evil .. so controlling ..
    that there were ARMED GUARDS .. there pointed at all those who HAD to drink the poison (and feed it to their children)
    they hunted down those who fled (most were shot .. some did escape .. )
    HOW SICK indeed ..
    to POISON the most innocent ..
    the elderly (who were not able to resist) and the CHILDREN (even the BABIES)

    IT is definitely INSANE to rely on the ONE for everything .. so much that you'd even follow the orders to KILL YOUR OWN INFANTS before yourself ..

    Here read this article on Jones. He was a big liberal Progressive and beyond. He helped in major voter fraud, also using politicians and power to place his people in low income homes for free or super low rent.

    He was scum in more ways than one.

    Read all the pages he gets scummier as he goes.

    Yes he was a progressive liberal
    The Peoples’ Temple was a leftist project, but leftists dismiss it as a “cult.” Jones (and the Unibomber) is an aberration. Now I find that Jones:

    Called his theology – apostolic socialism. He ridiculed what he called “white Christianity.”
    During the murder/suicide, Jones warned his followers that their children would be stolen and tortured. He said, “You can’t steal people’s children. You can’t take off with people’s children without expecting a violent reaction. And that’s not so unfamiliar to us either–even if we were Judeo-Christian–if we weren’t Communists.”
    As his followers were dying around him, Jones made these statements: “So my opinion is that you be kind to children and be kind to seniors and take the potion like they used to take in ancient Greece and step over quietly because we are not committing suicide; it’s a revolutionary act.” “This is a revolutionary–a revolutionary suicide council.” “This is a revolutionary suicide. This is not a self-destructive suicide.” “Take our life from us. We laid it down. We got tired. We didn’t commit suicide, we committed an act of revolutionary suicide protesting the conditions of an inhumane world.”
    Yet Left rants about the fascist threat from conservative Christians; Andrew Sullivan calls them...

    Yet Left rants about the fascist threat from conservative Christians; Andrew Sullivan calls them “Christianists.” If a white Christian minister had duped, intimidated over 900 members of his congregation to literally “drink the Kool-Aid”, our media would still be talking about him. But Jim Jones was a white leader of a inter-racial, pseudo-Christian, leftist “temple”, who destroyed his followers because they failed to create heaven on earth. Sounds familiar.

    Whenever Dems needed a crowd in S.F. they contacted Jim Jones to show up at rallies....there is a photo of Roslyn Carter and Jim Jones shaking hands, and of course Governor Moonbeam was a supporter....the bogus religious philosophy of his mirrored "social justice" crap that the left preaches...
