Seen this story on the FNC site this morning. It's been 30 years. I remember watching this unfold on the news. There are a few documentaries and even a movie on this. The actual audio of the mass murder taking place is eerie.

Jonestown survivor recalls cult's mass suicide: 'This was murder'

A survivor of the infamous suicide-murder Jonestown massacre in 1978 recently recalled how she escaped as some 900 people lost their lives.

Tracy Parks, who was just 12 years old, recalled holding her mother’s body, trying to wake her up after she drank cyanide-laced grape punch alongside hundreds more in Jonestown, Guyana.

She said her father yelled at her to “get in the jungle” and “run” as more and more bodies fell to the ground around her. She said her older sister Brenda started running and she followed suit.

“I felt like I wasn’t in my body,” Parks told People. “We were so scared, we just kept running.”

She said they made it out of the jungle three days later, which is when they learned about the massacre that took more than 900 lives, including 304 children. Parks said she lost five family members in the incident.

“My brother broke the news to me little by little as the doctors were nursing me back,” Parks said. “‘No one is alive,’ he told me. ‘They’re all gone.'”

Parks, who is now 51 and owns a daycare in California, said she still struggled with the trauma of the event for years.

“This wasn’t suicide,” she said. “This was murder. Those children didn’t want to die and neither did many of the adults.”

The area, Jonestown, was established by Peoples Temple leader Jim Jones. He established the Peoples Temple in San Francisco in the early 1970s but had to flee following allegations of wrongdoing. Jones and hundreds of his followers moved to the settlement in Guyana, the only English-speaking country in South America.

Jones orchestrated the mass suicide at the temple’s nearby agricultural commune after gunmen from his group ambushed and killed U.S. Rep. Leo Ryan, of California, three newsmen and a defector who were visiting Jonestown to investigate allegations of abuse on the members.

Jones ordered followers to drink the cyanide-laced grape punch. Most complied, although survivors described some people being shot, injected with poison, or forced to drink the deadly beverage when they tried to resist.

Unreal. Man posts about a horrible tragedy from the past, and right off some idiot has to try and make it unto a Trump thread.

YFP: you have absolutely no clue about when to STFU.

I'm not sure which is more twisted. The Jonestown massacre, or YFPs response.

New low yfp. Commit yourself to being a better human. It's possible.

First it needs to be able to tell the truth, which it's shown countless times and even on this very thread that it's not even remotely capable of doing. You have to be honest before you can have humanity. It's a lost cause.

Very sad tragedy.

I'm not sure why Paul Z would make that comparison, half of those in the picture probably still voted Democrat in the last election. He should have more respect.

I had a friend who like me was old enough to remember this. She recently posted on social media asking why even professionals use the phrase drinking the Kool aid. Basically she was offended by it (although she didn't use that word). One of the comments someone made fussed because it "wasn't even Kool Aid, it was a grape flavored drink." They seemed to think it wasn't appropriate to use that phrase since so many died at Jonestown.

And yes, she is a liberal.
