A long time ago in a land far away...November 18, 1978 in Jonestown, Guyana... a group of cult followers (912 people) drank a deadly concoction of a purple drink laced with cyanide, sedatives, and tranquilizers upon the direction/coaxing of cult leader Jim Jones. The drink mix came to be called "Kool Aid". Thus, the term, "drinking the Kool Aid" referring to any group who cannot think for themselves, believing in one fanatic's teaching/preaching, not bothering to search for the truth. Let's look at what happened and see if we can identify other "cult" today:
First of all, Jim Jones did not graduate from any seminary. Did Jeremiah Wright? The Reverend Jesse Jackson? Any of the current activists? Yet, Jim Jones used religion to pray upon the weak. President Obama appointed himself as the only overseer who could care for Black America, the victims of capitalism.
Where did President Obama attend school? Where are his transcripts? Where are the people he attended school with?
As a child, Jim Jones studied Joseph Stalin, Karl Marx, Mahatma Gandhi and Adolf Hitler carefully, noting each of their strengths and weaknesses. Barack Obama studied Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Che Guevara.
In 1960, Indianapolis Democratic Mayor Charles Boswell appointed Jim Jones director of the Human Rights Commission. Jones ignored Boswell's advice to keep a low profile, finding new outlets for his views on local radio and television programs.When the mayor and other commissioners asked Jones to curtail his public actions, he resisted and WAS WILDLY CHEERED at a meeting of the NAACP and Urban League when he yelled for his audience to be more militant, and climaxed with "Let my people go!"
President Obama keeps telling Black America he is their salvation against the "1%". He has been successful in stirring up racial and social animosity. While Americans keep "drinking the drink", not seeing that he has been jetting all over the world using America's money. He keeps stealing from Americans and giving billions to his cronies who helped him get elected.
Has anyone who voted for President Obama in '08 noticed how divisive he has been for America? While "hope and change" was to bring Americans together and we were finally to have transparency in the White House, it was all just words! We followed him like the "Pied Piper".
Now that President Obama is running behind on national election polls, are we to expect another Jonestown? Will he command us all to commit suicide, or to kill each other?
We are living in a scary time, indeed.
