Question: Do you know where the term “drinking the kool-aid” come from and what it has to do with Democrats?
This recent article and/or blog post reveals the alarming, but not surprising answer to this question-You Decide:
DEMOCRAT KOOL-AID–Posted on To The Point News-By Dr. Jack Wheeler-On October 26, 2010:
These are pertinent excerpts from this article and/or blog posts:
“Georgetown, Guyana. You may think you’ve never heard of this place but you have.
The former British Guiana (one of the three Guianas – the other two being former Dutch Guiana, now Surinam, and French Guiana, all on the northeast shoulder of South America) – is these days visited by folks into eco-tourism. This place has one of the most untouched rainforests on earth with an astonishing variety of bird and wildlife.
But Guyana doesn’t ring a bell with you because of harpy eagles and howler monkeys. How about Jim Jones and Jonestown? Yes, that Guyana, where, on November 18, 1978, over 900 Americans committed mass suicide on orders of their cult leader.
It remains one of the most bizarre events of modern times – from which the phrase “drinking the Kool-Aid” originates, meaning blind unthinking acceptance of a suicidally idiotic set of beliefs.
Yet almost no one knows just what, exactly, were the beliefs of the “Peoples Temple” cult created by Jim Jones. Some sort of weird religion, right?
Nope. Jim Jones calling his Peoples Temple a “church” was a tax-avoidance scam as it was purely secular. He admitted in a taped interview, “I’m an atheist.” He was not a religious leader. He was a Stalin-admiring far left San Francisco Democrat.
Born in Indiana in 1931, Jones joined the Communist Party USA at age 21, then formed his Peoples Temple Church preaching “apostolic socialism,” which he claimed was the only path to salvation from “capitalist America, racist America, fascist America.” He denounced Christianity as “the white man’s oppression of women and people of color.” Jones was white, Welsh-Irish. Most all of his followers were black.
In 1975, Jones established the headquarters of the Peoples Temple in San Francisco, where his followers were instrumental (as in voting multiple times) in electing Dem George Moscone Mayor. Moscone often took Jones with him to meetings with Governor Jerry Brown and Vice-President Walter Mondale. Board of Supervisors member Harvey Milk often delivered speeches at the Temple and wrote a letter to President Jimmy Carter praising Jones as “a man of the highest character.”
(The 2008 movie Milk, in which Sean Penn won a Best Actor Oscar for portraying Harvey Milk as a homosexual hero, makes no mention whatever of Jones and Jonestown, even though Milk and Moscone were killed just 9 days after the Jonestown Massacre.)
In 1976, after newspaper interviews of defectors from Jones’ Temple describing Jones’ bisexual abuses of his followers, Jones established Jonestown on 3,000 acres in remote northern Guyana as a “benevolent communist community,” and ordered 1,000 of his followers to move there. Once living in Jonestown, his followers were not allowed to leave. Any attempt to do so was prevented by Jones’ armed “Red Brigade” security guard.
Guyana had been ruled since independence from Britain in 1966 by a Marxist dictator, Forbes Burnham, who established strong relations with Cuba and the Soviet Union (upon his death in 1985, his body was mummified by the laboratory of the Lenin Mausoleum in Moscow). The Soviet Embassy in Georgetown provided aid to the community. The only films followers were allowed to watch were Soviet propaganda movies. Jones declared that “the Soviet Union is our spiritual motherland.”
Horror stories from defectors and escapees from Jonestown aroused the concern of California Congressman Leo Ryan, who flew with a press entourage to Georgetown and on to the Jonestown dirt airstrip to bring back those who wanted to leave. They arrived on November 18, 1978. Several Temple members asked for asylum. Returning to airstrip, as they were boarding the plane, a truckload of Red Brigade guards appeared and gunned them down. Ryan, along with five others, was killed, the first and only murder of a US Congressman in the line of duty in US history.
After the murders which he had ordered, Jones declared that US forces would arrive to “convert the children acceptable alternative was “revolutionary suicide.” He had a vat prepared of Kool-Aid and another similar powdered drink mix Flavor Aid, heavily laced with potassium cyanide.
908 Temple followers drank the Kool-Aid, the mothers squirting the poison in their infant babies’ mouths. Jones blew his brains out after they were all dead.
The entire suicide episode was audio-taped. You can hear Jones telling his followers that “as socialistic Communists… we must die with dignity.” You can hear the crowd cheering and clapping, and the babies screaming and crying. Near the end, a woman says it is a “loving thing” they are doing, that she is glad to “give my life for Socialism, Communism,” and she thanks “Dad” (what they called Jones) for enabling her to do so.
Here is the FBI transcript of the tape.
All of this, including the transcript, is a matter of public record. Have you ever, in 32 years, heard that Jim Jones was a fanatic of the Left, ever heard the Left taking any responsibility for Jonestown in any way? Of course not.
And you never will – because the Left today, the Democrat Party, the liberal media, blogosphere, and academia – has become itself a cult of revolutionary suicide.
They’ve all drunk the Kool-Aid. Which means the aftermath of November 2nd is likely to get violently ugly.
Particularly so in Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Vermont – 26 states in all.
What do they have in common? A Democrat Secretary of State, the state’s chief elections officer responsible for certifying the results of state elections. Let me tell you about one, Nevada’s Ross Miller.
He’s a stooge of Harry Reid. Last January, Reid put up a huckster named Scott Ashjian to register a political party named Tea Party of Nevada (TPN), and under it register as a candidate for the US Senate. Nevada law states that for a party’s candidates to get on the ballot, a petition must be filed with the Secretary of State with a minimum of 9,000 signatures. The filing deadline is June and Ashjian never filed any petition at all, much less one with the requisite signatures.
Miller then ruled that somehow the law did not apply to this fictional Tea Party as it did for others such as the Libertarian or Green parties. The Angle campaign sued, as it was an obvious underhanded Reid ploy to fool voters who would otherwise vote for Angle. Miller ruled that the suit was filed too late as it was past the June deadline!
Then the Dem majority Nevada Supreme Court upheld Miller’s ruling.
The ballot identifies each candidate’s party by abbreviation such as DEM or REP. Ashjian demanded his make-believe party’s abbreviation be changed from TPN to TEA. The ballot printing office said it was too late to do that. So last week, Miller ordered that all polling booths in the state must prominently place a notice saying that TPN stands for Tea Party of Nevada. No notice is required for any other party, just Ashjian’s fraud.
So, if the Angle-Reid vote is close and Angle wins by less than 1%, how high do you think the odds are that Miller will Franken-ize the election, with serial counts and recounts until Reid wins? High as Everest.
This may happen in every tight Congressional and Senate race in all the 26 states above. Gore v. Bush 2000 on steroids. Dems will cheat wherever possible – preventing soldiers overseas from getting their ballots, rigging absentee and “provisional” votes, rigging vote machines, cemetery and multiple votes on election day – then challenge the results wherever they barely lose and win – the ends justify the means, the basis of Marxist morality – just so they do.
Dems have to win – or they don’t eat. If Republicans lose, they go back to their regular lives and careers. Living off the government is the career of Dems, and they starve if they can’t.
The particular flavor of Kool-Aid all the Dems – again, the entire Left, from Dem politicians to the leftie media, blogosphere, and academia – are drinking right now is their conviction that all those who vote Republican are racist haters who hate Zero because he’s black. The only reason that the racist haters will defeat Dems on November 2nd is the foreign money illegally pouring in to Rep campaigns.
Point out to them that Rep-supporting outfits like the US Chamber of Commerce must by law (and do) disclose their foreign donations (which turn out to be miniscule), while Leftie outfits like MoveOn and SEIU do not (and don’t), and they do the schoolyard act: put their fingers in their ears and yell, “I can’t hear you!”
You can see the Lefties going deranged everywhere. Look at the Leftie Internet media such as YouTube, which is now filled with videos smearing Republican candidates as rapists, wife-beaters, criminals, total wackos, etc.
This is going to explode into an absolute apoplexy of Leftie derangement after November 2nd.
A myth entrenched in Leftie brains is that Bush cheated Gore out of the presidency in 2000. After November 2nd, they will convince themselves that Republican racist haters cheated Dems out of their House Majority and will look upon the Reps who “won” just as illegitimate as Bush. They will no more accept a Republican House Majority (and possibly in the Senate) as legit than they did W.
This is real Jim Jones Kool-Aid they are drinking. They would rather the entire country and the entire economy commit revolutionary suicide than they be out of power…”
Folks, one week from today, November 2nd, begins the demolition of the Left in America. It begins with zero tolerance of their cheating and their threats. We do that, and it’s morning in America once more.”
