When I warned over those last thirty-five years that, since this cult vulnerability (that pervaded California’s societal hierarchy) had gone unexamined – and therefore unchecked (thus allowing Jones a power brokerstatus) – the same spiritual disease would gradually increase and then reemerge “on a grand national level,” I had no doubts whatsoever. Finally, in the winter of 2007-2008, when I saw the young Senator Barack Hussein Obama, I realized that this was the reemerging. I could see the remarkable parallels to Jones: The narcissism, the charisma, the flare for oratory, the capturing of the gullible media, the blatant rhetoric of socialism, the community organizing, the anger, the total lack of a role model father. It was obvious: the reemergence was upon us.
And the next five years did nothing but prove it.The same as it was with Jim Jones then, the same it is now, with Obama: the fawning media, incapable of objectively vetting him; a leftist political hierarchy that defends, or covers for, his outrageous actions; the deception; the glaring use of the “straw man fallacy”; the excessive fear of having anyone see his private history; the same unexamined claim that there are “many paths” to heaven;the “adoring wife” who goes to great lengths to describe how “caring” her husband is; and the astounding disparity between his public image and his private and personal insensitivities.
