Our two posts about Jonestown from 2009 and 2010:

Jonestown, Guyana, 18 November 1978



Blogger Cynthia Yockey reminded us of this terrible anniversary and how a beloved childhood drink mix has come to be synonymous with mass suicide for those of us old enough to remember Jonestown.

Wikipedia gives a compelling and complete account of the events which lead people from their homes in California to their deaths in Africa…

…The poisonings in Jonestown followed the murder of five others by Temple members at a nearby Port Kaituma airstrip. The victims included Congressman Leo Ryan, the first and only Congressman murdered in the line of duty in the history of the United States. Four other Temple members died in Georgetown at Jones’ command.

To the extent the actions in Jonestown were viewed as a mass suicide, it is the largest such event in modern history and resulted in the largest single loss of American civilian life in a non-natural disaster until the events of September 11, 2001…”…

…The photo is also from Wikipedia. In the foreground you see a vat which contained a Kool-Aid-like drink and the cyanide. We urge you to acquaint yourselves with the story of Jonestown…

The anniversary of the Jonestown “revolutionary suicide”

November 18 is the anniversary of the Jonestown Massacre, the day in 1978 that moonbats began their time-honored tradition of guzzling Kool-Aid. In Guyana, they did it on behalf of communist cult leader Jim Jones, who was too cowardly to drink the cyanide-laced drink himself and had to be shot by one of his henchmen. His wife left instructions for the money they milked from their gullible slaves to be donated to the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.

Typically, the Jonestown Massacre has been spun by our liberal ruling class as some sort of religious episode. This is because Jones and his followers worshiped the same thing liberals do: coercive collectivism…

…Inevitably, communism leads to piles of corpses. Jonestown was humbled by the body counts mounted in China, Russia, and Cambodia — but over 900 people did die there 32 years ago today. So lift your glasses of Kool-Aid in pride, moonbats, and toast a historic milestone in the development of collectivism.

Applied moonbattery at Jonestown.


Communism always ends this way for the governed. Always. And without exception.
