This moving video and gorgeous, seductive song prove there’s still some good music coming out these days. The video uses footage from NBC’s report on the 1978 Jonestown Massacre, a horrific event that carries a powerful message for our time.
A lot of folks don’t realize that the “Reverend” Jim Jones was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party, as well as an anti-White, multicult radical. Before Jonestown, many prominent people defended Jones because of the “inclusive, anti-racist” organization he’d built, including Willie Brown, the mayor of San Francisco, and homosexual advocate Harvey Milk. But in fact, Jones’s “anti-racism” was nothing more than doctrinaire communism. In previous posts, we’ve discussed how leftists conceal their poisonous agenda behind the holy mantra of “anti-racism.”
As you can see from the video, Jones was clearly unbalanced. At the same time, unfortunately, he was also charismatic. (He reminds me of abolitionist fanatic John Brown.) You can see both rapturous delight and militant self-righteousness in the faces of Jones’s followers. His “church” did not preach the Gospel, but a form of Black Liberation theology, which claims to “affirm the humanity of white people” by their willingness to sacrifice themselves in the name of black liberation.
Please watch the entire video. I’ve never seen anything that better illustrates the pathology and allure of the cult of anti-racism, which its own record shows to be a self-destructive and anti-human ideology. And by contrast, this video also serves as a powerful reminder of the natural vitality of an historical, organic culture.
