"Cult city, Jim Jones, Harvey milk and ten days that shook San Francisco his senior editor at the American spectator is written for a whole bunch of great outlets. And we welcome to the show. Now as we approach what the fortieth anniversary of the Jonestown massacre and Harvey milk assassination. Welcome to the show. Dan flynn. Hey, thank you for having me. You know, it's interesting because here we are on the precipice of the midterms and twenty eighteen and on that ballot. Is Dianne Feinstein somebody who was elevated on the National Front by the assassination of Harvey milk. She was she was also someone she she didn't get seduced by people's temple as much as some of the other politicians in San Francisco, but she did in in one thousand nine hundred seventy six low to give us a certificate of honor to Jim Jones for all of the service. He had supposedly given to the city her her place in ironically in in the story has to do with the man that she mentored in politics, which is who is Dan white white Shafei Harvey milk and mayor George Mosconi Cup in San Francisco. I wanna quickly on a white first day in office. He was able to essentially make Dianne Feinstein, the president of the board of supervisors of San Francisco and on his last day in city hall. It's really assassination. He essentially made her mayor in that, you know, people don't look at it in this from the sense now, but he rarely was sort of Diane Feinstein's protege. And that's something that gets swept under the rug. And that's kind of a theme with the book that a lot of the information and cult city is information that people don't like to talk about anymore. Let's talk about called city because I think for so many Americans they think of the the the massacre in Guyana that was perpetrated by Jim Jones against his followers and even a congressman. They think that that takes place overseas. But this is rooted firmly in San Francisco, and San Francisco, Laura, tell us about the peoples temple before the poor drank too cool. Eight in South America, the powerful did in in San Francisco. I wrote this book when I was a little kid, and this is happening guy. And I thought it was the weirdest story that I'd ever heard my life did nine hundred or so people had killed themselves at the behest of this madman. When I was in adult, I found out that mayor Mosconi had appointed Jim Jones for the housing commission. San Francisco need quickly became the chairman of the housing commission, effectively making him the largest landlord in the city of San Francisco. And when you think about how he treated his his tenants down in Jonestown. That's a very scary thought, we think about Jim Jones with people like Ted Bundy or Charles Manson, you don't think of guys like that having positions of civic responsibility, very powerful positions. But Jim Johns was so in with the in crowd in San Francisco that not only what given this position in San Francisco. But when when Walter Mondale rice, president states gets off the plane to campaign for Jimmy Carter in nineteen seventy six. And the first person he meets is is is Jim Jones laws Lin Carter the president's wife. She has Jim Jones introduced her when when he gets to San Francisco, they eat dinner together. She calls him on the telephone. She refers him to her sister-in-law the president's sister who was also in the ministry. So he Jim Jones was a person that up until the time. He killed all those people. He was very much beloved state. You're on the American left in once that happened. You got a very different version of Jim Jones. Walter Cronkite called him a fascist the New York Times reported that he preached fundamentalist Christianity, which was ally in Johnstown that the people that I interviewed and I won't I'll try to get too graphic butter. He he he he took everyone's bible when they came in any only gave them out when they ran out of toilet paper in in in in in Jonestown. That's the kind of Christian. He was which is to say, no question at all. He was a hardcore atheist who when they when they engage in this after he calls revolutionary suicide. He told the people down there that they were dying for communism, and many people believe that and they enthusiastically went to their graves believing that we see Jim Jones as as as a tremendous fake, a huckster a con man who conned nine hundred people to their deaths and and conned. The leadership in the city of San Francisco into going along with elevating him Harvey milk. Does does he fit that same Bill because I mean, he has been lionised as a as a modern day, cultural hero. We all saw the hype around the Sean Penn portrayal of him the elevations of him in the American conversation. He's regarded in the same category by some as as Rosa Parks or MLK. What about what about the role of Harvey milk in the conversation? Yeah. And Harvey milk's very short career in politics. The most significant thing he did was to buddy up with Jim Johns. They were extremely tight. You know, this from the letter is that many wider sick milk wrote to Jones which Riveria fawning letter saying my name is cut stone for you, and your people all sorts of language that that indicated how tight they were the probably the most significant thing that milkjam is when when things started to go south for Jim Jones, and then he went south down to South America, some of the politicians abandon him Harvey milk did not in the one of the big controversies was that Jones had kidnapped a boy a six year old boy from San Francisco brought them down take. I Anna his parents wanted him back RV milk took the side of the kidnapper wrote a letter to president of the United States. You need coroner saying that Jim Jones was among the most admired figures man of the highest character in San Francisco. Geico. Also, it's a fawning language calling. The boy's parents has data black a bold faced liar, and his mom a blackmailer that kid died along with the nine hundred eleven other people in Jonestown and Harvey milk played his his small part in that not just by writing Carter, but he was writing spokes Burnham the prime minister of Guyana. He's writing cabinet secretary Joseph Califano, he said that the Jonestown was leading the World Food crisis that it was a retirement community that the people would pay thousands of dollars to go to it was a beautiful retirement community. So much of what he was writing was just completely at odds with reality. And I think you know for a guy who. Legislation that he passed in San Francisco was dot that's ordinance where you're supposed to clean up your dog after yourself what he did with Jonestown what he did with Jim Jones was far more significant than that. But when you watch the movie with Sean Penn, you don't get any indication that had any sort of took whatsoever with Jim Jones, the peoples temple where he spoke to where he got hundreds of volunteers from that's all sort of swept under the rug. Let me ask you. Another person who's a high profile politician in California that's attached to this story. Was elevated because of her boss's role in trying to uncover the truth or I guess doing a fact-finding investigation into the people's temple. That's Jackie speier who who was working at that time for Leo. Ryan Leo Ryan would ultimately lose lose his life there at Jonestown. Right. Correct. And she would eventually be elevated up to. She would work her way up and eventually become a congresswoman. But was was was he was he working in good faith to uncover wrongdoing here or was he part of the problem. No. We're Ryan was very much part of the solution and Jackie steer was as well. I actually interviewed Dan Quayle who is supposed to go down there with with with Ryan. But but for the fact that he had a daughter that was being worn around thanksgiving weekend. He took a pass on the trip or else. He would have been among the dead down there in Jonestown. Certainly Jackie speier was wounded or number of times down there. And I think quite Geraldo with some of the journalists they tried to do something about it. But by that point, it was really too late because for years, you had journalists like herb Cain who wanna poetry later in San Francisco acting as boosters on critical propagandists for Jim Jones. You had you know, in one thousand nine hundred seventy five it was thought that people's temple rigged the mayoral election by bringing in bussing in people to vote in the city electors. And when the district attorney Mosconi the district attorney with investigating the matter who did he put in charge of the investigation, his Deputy District Attorney. Who happened to be Jim Jones's deputy and peoples temple his second. In command was doing the investigation of peoples temple. And of course, what do you think he found no wrongdoing? That's that's how in with the in crowd people's temple wasn't San Francisco. And that's not something that's discussed off today. I wanna be folks more politicians at that time are still in power, Gary brownies. He's the governor. Then he was he's the governor. Now, he spoke at people's temple at grad. We spoke. I mean, sorry mayor Tom Bradley in LA spoke at people's temple and a lot of water spokes like willy Brown's get much more than speak. I mean, he compared Jones to MLK in Dondi. He wrote Fidel Castro letter urging him to have to extend a state. Visit Jim Jones when he visited Cuba. He called Joe they highly trusted Grutter in the struggle for liberation. But when you read his memoir, he acts like he didn't even know Jim Jones, and that's kind of the. The standard reaction of these folks were very much embroiled in in that whole colts of peoples temple years later, they acted as though they didn't know the guy in the aftermath looking back at this forty years later visiting with Dan Flynn, author of the new book called city. Jim Jones Harvey milk contend days that shook San Francisco as you as you look back at this forty years on was this is this whole story merely a product of of the wacky nineteen seventies in a pretty wacky place. Or is this the logical is the logical conclusion to what happens when you allow community organizing to get out of hand. A little bit of balls. I would say more of the former San Francisco in the seventies very much the hangover after the high. You had you know, in the sixties the summer of love Haight Ashbury and all that what's going on. It's just go. There's always a price to be paid for the party in San Francisco that price was paid with the symbionese Liberation Army. You have the new world Liberation Front. Putting a bomb on on Dianne Feinstein daughters window sale. You had the Black Panthers. The weatherman hiding out there zodiac killings zebra killings. You saw this on the silver screen with dirty, Harry, how dysfunctional the city was or on TV with the streets of San Francisco. So it's very was a dysfunctional place. And what happened in November of nineteen seventy eight with people's temple Jonestown and also with the milk Mosconi assassination. This was very much exclamation point on this chaotic crazy decade in this chaotic crazy place, really a San Francisco that doesn't. Much resemble the San Francisco that we see today maybe in politics it does. But it's not the sort of culturally rich wealthy place that we think of today when we think of San Francisco, great stuff, it's an amazing book. And I can't recommend it highly enough. It's you fly through reading it. It's like a I'm envisioning the film as marine again, Dan, Dan, Dan, Flynn, author of the new book, it's called cult city. Jim Jones Harvey milk in the ten days that shook San Francisco, he's also the author of five other books. He's done amazing work. And I always appreciate catching up with you. I look forward, Dan, I'm gonna get you over on TV at Newsmax as well, we're going to talk about the book as well there. But I appreciate you making time for us today. Thank you so much outstanding. Thank you so much be well that Stanford and checking and cult city Jim Jones Harvey milk in ten days that shook San Francisco it's a lot lot of mirrors to the seventies. And some of what we're seeing from the progressive stack. Right. Whatever will show him seven, sixty talk. Breaking news. Jim got headlines. What's.

"Of campaign volunteers. Give them a printing. Press gives them his pulpit to speak at wherever whenever he wants Jones has a newspaper that he goes out to a lot of people called the people's forum and you'll get the publicity there. And so Jones is able to provide milk and other politicians in San Francisco with a lot of what politicians crave, you know, volunteers and complicity and that kind of thing in return bilk was able to give jump legitimacy in Jones got the better end of that deal. Because when things went south for Jones in San Francisco, Harvey milk, really went into overdrive to to lobby world leaders on Jones's behalf. He wrote the president United States when there's this custody dispute when had kidnapped the six year old boy. Nope. Took the side of of the kidnapper. In fact, he wrote Jimmy Carter and said that Jim Jones was thought of as the man a man of the highest character in San Francisco at this boy's mother was a blackmailer. His father was a teller of ball face live. He wrote that the prime minister of Guyana such greatness, I have found in Jim Jones's peoples temple. He wrote Joseph Califano who is the secretary of health education at the time cabinet member. He said the Jonestown was a beautiful retirement community the likes of which people means would pay thousands of dollars to ten he said that they were helping to wipe out crime that Jonestown which at the time couldn't even feed its own people. He said that they were alleviating the World Food crisis. So he really he basically told lies to bolster image of Jim Jones, and he did this to very powerful people. And for the folks in Guyana who don't know Jim Jones, Madame when they're getting these letters from very powerful figures in the United States saying Jim Jones is a great guy from Willie Brown from Harvey milk and from others. You know, they have to question. Some of these reports that they're getting how could so many people in positions of power in the United States speak. So well, Jim, right? You have these regular people saying, you know, he's doing all. These rotten things put an end to this. And ironically, Harvey milk is gunned down eight days before the massacre. Nine days afterwards. He was he was gunned down. Correct. And that was a tragedy all by itself. Would that have any Tien the Jim Jones? No, not really. I mean, the the the two victims, George Mosconi and Harvey milk in Wisconsin was the mayor at the time. Right. Correct. Yeah. Over a petty office in San Francisco, a guy by the name of Dan, white was the was a colleague of milk's on the board of supervisors he resigned his position. He was a cop and basically represented the public employees unions on the board. And all those people said, hey, we we really worked for you. Why did you died? They convinced him to beg for his job. Back in initially Mosconi says yes, you can have your job back Harvey milk. Who was probably a better politician than Mosconi said, look, this guy is he's coming on the wrong side of two hundred sixty five votes care, what this guy back on the board Mosconi realizes the wisdom of that and denies white his place on the board white comes into the city hall SAS next Mosconi, and then he assassinates melts white was kind of a protege of Dianne Feinstein. And on the board kind of like a centrist democrat, maybe within the context of San Francisco. He was a little bit to the right? And that's you know, they didn't want him on the board because he wasn't voting away. The mayor wanted to enough now at the trial. It's brought up that would be perfectly legitimate for white to to bring a gun to city hall because you know, what happened with people's temple. And ultimately, the jury essentially buys a lot of these specious arguments, and you serves about five years in prison for killing two men, which is the fact that you get the phrase drinking the Kool aid.

But Jim Johns was so in. With the in crowd in San Francisco that not only what she given this position in San Francisco. But when when Walter Mondale right present United States gets off the plane to campaign for Jimmy Carter in nineteen seventy six and the first person he meets is is is Jim Jones was Lin Carter the president's wife. She has Jim Jones introduced her when when he gets to San Francisco, they eat dinner together. She calls him on the telephone. She refers him to her sister-in-law the president's sister who was also in the ministry. So he Jim Jones was a person that up until the time. He killed all those people. He was very much a beloved figure on the American left. And once that happened. You got a very different version of Jim Jones. Walter Cronkite called him a fascist the New York Times reported that he preached fundamentalist Christianity, which was ally in Johnstown, the people that I interviewed and I won't I'll try to get too graphic butter. He he he he took everyone's bible when they came in. And he only gave them. When they ran out of toilet paper in in in in in Jonestown. That's the kind of Christian. He was which is to say, no question at all. He was a hardcore atheist one day when they engage in this act that he calls revolutionary suicide. He told the people down there that they were dying for communism, and many people believe that and they enthusiastically went to their graves believing that we see Jim Jones is as a tremendous fake, a huckster a con man who conned nine hundred people to their deaths and and con. The leadership in the city of San Francisco into going along with elevating him Harvey milk. Does does he fit that same Bill because I mean, he has been lionised as a as a modern day, cultural hero. We all saw the hype around the Sean Penn portrayal of him. The elevator of him in the American conversation. He's regarded in the same category by some as as Rosa Parks or MLK. What about what about the role of Harvey milk in the conversation? Yeah. And Harvey milk's very short career in politics. The most significant thing he did was with Jim Jones. They were extremely tight. You know, this from the letter is that many wetter milk wrote to Jones which were very letter saying my name is cut stone for you, and your people all sorts of language that that indicated how tight they were the probably the most significant thing that milkjam is when when things started to go south for Jim Jones, and then he went south down to South America. Some of the politicians abandon him hard. Be milk did not in the one of the big controversies was that Jones had kidnapped aboard. If it's your boy from San Francisco brought him down to Ghana. His parents wanted him back Harvey milk took the side of the kidnapper wrote a letter to president United States you need car. Same. That's Jim Jones was among the most admired figures a man of the highest character in San Francisco, all sorts of funding language calling. The boy's parents as data black a bolt face liar, and his mom a blackmailer that kid died along with the nine hundred eleven other people in Jonestown and Harvey milk played his his small part in that not just by writing Carter. But he was writing sports Burnham, the prime minister of Guyana. He's writing cabinet secretary Joseph Califano, he said that the Jonestown was alleviating World Food crisis that it was a retirement community that the people would pay thousands of dollars to to go to it was a beautiful retirement community. So much of what he was writing was just completely at odds with reality. And I think, you know, for a guy who his soul legislation that he passed in San Francisco was dot net's ordinance where you're supposed to clean up your dog after yourself what he did with Jonestown what he did with Jim Jones was far more significant than that. But when you watch the movie with Sean Penn, you don't get any indication that had any sort of took whatsoever with Jim Jones, the people's temple where he spoke to where he got hundreds of volunteers from that's all sort of swept under the rug. Let me ask you. Another person who's a high profile politician in California this attached to this story was elevated because of her boss's role and trying to uncover the truth or I guess doing a fact-finding investigation into the people's temple. That's Jackie speier who who was working at that time for Leo Ryan, Leo Ryan would ultimately lose lose his life there at Jonestown right Herat, and she would eventually be elevated up to. He would work her way up and eventually become a congresswoman. But was was was he was he working in good faith to uncover wrongdoing here or was he part of the problem. No, Leo Ryan was very much part of the solution. And Jackie speier was as well. I actually interviewed Dan Quayle who was supposed to go down there with with with we owe Ryan. But but for the fact that he had a daughter that was being worn around thanksgiving weekend took a pass on the trip or else. He would have been among the dead down there in Jonestown. Certainly Jackie speier was wounded a number of times down there. And I think quite Geraldo with some of the journalists they tried to do something about it. But by that point, it was really too late because for years you had journalists like hurricane who wanna poetry later in San Francisco acting as boosters on critical propaganda for Jim Jones, you had you know, in one thousand nine hundred seventy five it was start to peoples temple rigged the mayoral election by bringing in bussing in people to vote in the city. Electors in when the district attorney Mosconi cast the district attorney with investigating the matter who did he put in charge of the investigation his Deputy District Attorney who happened to be Jim Jones's deputy and peoples temple his second. In command was doing the investigation of peoples temple. And of course, what do you think he found no wrongdoing? That's that's how in with the in crowd people's temple wasn't San Francisco. And that's not something that's discussed often today. I wanna be folks more politicians at that time are still in power, Gary brownies. He's the governor. Then he was he's the governor. Now, he spoke at people's temple. I Bradley spoke. Sorry mayor Tom, Bradley and LA spoke at people's temple and a lot of the water Stokes like willy Brown. Get much more than speak. I mean, he compared Jones to MLK in Dondi. He wrote Fidel Castro letter urging him to have extended a state. Visit Jim Jones when he visited Cuba. He called Joe. They highly trusted Grutter in the struggle for liberation. But when you read his memoir, he acts like he didn't even know Jim Jones, and that's kind of the the standard reaction. These folks were very much embroiled in that whole cult of peoples temple years later, they acted as though they didn't know the guy in the aftermath looking back at this forty years later visiting with Dan Flynn, author of the new book called city, Jim Jones, Harvey milk contend days that shook San Francisco as you as you look back at this forty years on was this is this whole story merely a product of of the wacky one thousand nine hundred seventies a pretty wacky place. Or is this the logical is this the logical conclusion to what happens when you allow community organizing to get out of hand a little bit of balls. I would say more of the former San Francisco in the seventies very much the hangover after the high you had, you know, in the sixties the summer of love Haight Ashbury and all that what's going on in San Francisco. There's always a price to be paid for the party. In San Francisco that price was paid with the seminaries Liberation Army. You have the new world Liberation Front. Putting a bomb on on Dianne Feinstein daughters. Sill you had the Black Panthers. The weatherman hiding out there. Zodiac killings zebra killings. You saw this on the silver screen with dirty, Harry, how dysfunctional the city was or on TV with the streets of San Francisco. So it's very was a dysfunctional place in what happened in November of nineteen seventy eight with people's temple in Jonestown. And also with the milk Kony's station. This was very much an exclamation point on this chaotic crazy decade in this chaotic crazy place, really a San Francisco that doesn't much resemble the San Francisco that we see today maybe in politics it does. But it's not the sort of culturally rich wealthy place that we think of today when we think of San Francisco, great stuff, it's an amazing book. And I can't recommend it highly enough you fly through it reading it. It's like, I'm envisioning the film as. Dan, Dan, Dan, Flynn, author of the new book. It's called cult city. Jim Jones Harvey milk in the ten days that shook San Francisco, he's also the author of five other books. He's done amazing work. And I always appreciate catching up with you. I look forward, Dan, I'm gonna get you over on TV at Newsmax as well, we're going to talk about the book as well there. But I appreciate you making time for us today. Thank you so much outstanding. Thank you so much be. Well, that's Dan Flynn checking and cult city, Jim Jones, Harvey milk and attend days. Shook San Francisco it's a lot lot of mirrors to the seventies..

"Modern mayor of San Francisco, he pushed them spire city government to become more inclusive diverse and tolerant. Life was cut short by the assassin who also murdered gay activist Harvey milk darkest day in San Francisco's political history. But like milk Mosconi left a legacy that has endured. And joining me now to talk about the documentary is producer and director now Katzman, and George Mosconi son Jonathan Mosconi who is featured in the film. They used to have both of you here with us. Having us Jonathan over the years. A lot has been written and said about that very awful dark time in nine hundred seventy eight when Dan white shot and killed your father along with Harvey milk. This film covers those events really through the lens of your father's life. Why was that so important to you? Well. We know how the story ends and the story has been usurped by the ending and what made my dad's so powerful was not just his Mark in history of someone who died for what he believed in but someone who from a childhood of no privilege whatsoever. Made it possible made it through the system and changed a lot of it and had a lasting lasting effect, including his relationship with Harvey milk who was an amazing man himself, and whose story hasn't been eclipsed because of the great movie milk. And so we needed we needed to tell Georgia store, and like you said Harvey milk. An icon was the first openly gay elected official in California. Do you feel that that his I kind of status sort of overshadowed? Your father's legacy. I think unintentionally it did because the gay community at the time the LGBTQ community the time still does need heroes. And need someone to to push their their their identity and voice forward. And so that became a really urgent call to action. But that unintentionally left my dad's story serve over to the side. And so a lot of friends and families really got together of my dad, led by my brother, Christopher to really to to change that and bring my dad's story back to the center and that he used the word hero. Harvey Bill was a hero to many. But Mosconi was the hero to many. He really. He really worked hard to make sure he he was inclusive in the way, he built city government in San Francisco. He was a state Senator before he became mayor. Can you talk about his role as a trailblazer? What set him apart from other politicians of that era? Well, several things and as you said he had two functions in politics. He was a state Senator for a long time in the mayor for just three years as a Senator his role in passing legislation very progressive legislation and a lot of it. And that's an important part of his legacy that we San Franciscan sometimes overlooked because he was the mayor the mayor that's an executive runs a place as Senator he supported by lingual education, you supported California school lunch program. He helped to overturn the state's sodomy statute. He did a lot of important things. And he also did a lot of things one of our interns made reference to this. She was she was doing research on the legislation. The George must of hand in passing and she was taken by something about mattress safety, but it was an early bid of consumer protectionism. And it's just part of a long list of things that he was involved in Sacramento during his career. But i'd. Also, add that when he became mayor. It was like a switch and in the city the halls of power in the city had previously been white men. And within months of mayor Mosconi being inaugurated power was distributed among people of all sorts of women minorities, gays, everything reflecting the diversity of the city of San Francisco, and it happened so quickly that that's what impressed me a lot, and Jonathan where do you think that framework or your father's beliefs in inclusiveness diversity came from? You know, that's a good question. I don't know. I have a very imaginative mind to to guess at what happened. He was raised by a single woman. And I think he even talked about how his mother really struggled very hard to make it and to be respected for the work that she did to be paid for the work that she did he grew up on the streets. He was a basketball player. So new knew the neighborhoods all across the city is a great level playing field the basketball court, and I think his father was a prison guard at San Quentin. And I think he just saw. The world. And he was like sometimes people wonder, how did Shakespeare write everything he was a creative person who saw the world and saw that he could change it and had them the capacity to talk to people across the aisle across the street and across the political spectrum and get them to really listen to what he had to say he had power and he built his privilege, and he used it for good. Asks his son when you watch this film. What surprised you the most? There was a picture of us in Hawaii that surprised all of us because we forgot that that picture existed. His voice has such a great voice. He he loved the way he walked down the street and sauntered with his hands in his pocket. And he just talk to gravelly sexy voice that I I don't even understand where that came from except the three thousand cigarettes he smoked a week. So I just loved his swagger that I loved I knew I know about him. I don't remember the swagger of seeing the film and seeing that again brought it back, and there were some interesting things in the film that I hadn't known before. I Washington many actually and one of them was when former state assembly speaker and former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown talked about how he met Jewish Mosconi they met when they both worked as janitors at UC UC Hastings college of law. What are some other interesting tidbits that are very little known that you think the public should know about George Mosconi. It's hinted at because it wasn't a point of emphasis in the program became fascinated by. How he could be someone across the aisle. And in the context of current politics. A man who have friends and Republican party who can make deals. Ronald Reagan, the governor to sign an awful lot of bills that were passed by the legislature in those years the degree of sophistication and honor. And we had some footage that isn't all in there. But there's a little bit from former governor George to the talks about how they got together. Even an opposite sides of it's a wonderful film. He knew how to work together with people, and we want to say that Mosconi legacy of change the documentary will air on next Friday at eight pm right here on cake. And in the meantime, Jonathan Mosconi and that Katzman thanks to you..

"So a rather interesting fortieth anniversary is coming up here. Big shocking events, some of you might be a little Juliani remember, but if you're of a certain age, and you certainly remember the assassination of Harvey milk, and this is a nineteen seventy and then ten days after that the Jonestown massacre nine hundred eighteen cult followers were killed the largest loss of civilian life in American history until nine eleven and it was it was quite the case. But how are these two connected, apparently they are called city. Jim Jones, Harvey milk and ten days that shook San Francisco's new book by Daniel Flynn who joins me this afternoon, Dan. How are you? Welcome back. Outstanding. You know, this is an interesting book for me because as you might envision as a radio host. I get these pitches all the time, right? They come across an e mails. And I look at them say, maybe I'll do this. Maybe I won't. But I remember the Jim Jones thing pretty well. And of course, Harvey milk. We've seen a couple of Hollywood versions of of his story. But the one thing that kind of blew me away, and I'm reading through. Some of the notes here is that those two stories are kind of intertwined, and I think a lot of people might be surprised by that not only because they happened in such proximity to one another just nine days apart. They and they were both San Francisco stories, but the fact that people try to gloss over is that Harvey milk was one of the primary boosters Jim Jones in San Francisco. He rather actively lobbied on his behalf. He wrote the president of the United States saying that Jones was thought of as a man of the highest character. He wrote the prime minister of Guyana various leaders the United States, including Joseph Califano who was a cabinet official at the time head of the health education and welfare department in claiming that Jonestown was helping to alleviate the World Food crisis, which was interesting given the fact that they into port sued to the very end and people were starving down there. He said that there was a retirement community that people would pay thousands of dollars to live in which. Of course, was very far from the truth. He milk helps Jones in intern Jones helped Kim Jones cave-in campaign volunteers, hundreds of them will pass out literature. He provided the printing press for Harvey milk to us. He promoted them from the pulpit Harvey milk often went to peoples temple and spoke at people's temple. And when milks what of his boyfriends committed suicide. The temple about fifty number sent condolence letters in Jones stressed up. You know, this is one of our deepest supporters. We really need to reach out to the guy. So Jones thought of milk as one of his most loyal and solid supporters. And he was right about that and milk. So out of Jones as not only a guy that helped him politically because he was a guy that was basically losing every political race until he got in touch with Jim Jones. But Jim Jones is also very rare figure at the time because are sensibly he is a Christian minister, he's really not a Christian. But he's posing as at and he is very vocal in favor of gay rights and other liberal causes. And that was that was something unusual. It was something that was very tracked Harvey now, let's let's back up just a little bit. Because I always get worried that, you know, a fair number of people listening right now who know these names, and they remember the Jonestown massacre. But they're probably, you know, people listening, and maybe they covered it in school or something. And what I remember is. Just, you know, the story about the the mass whatever you wanna call it the mass poisoning, the mass suicide nine hundred nine people you think about that number died from Sinai poisoning. Is it it and whether it was suicide or a coaxing by Jim Jones who was Jim Johnson. How can you get people to do that? Jim Jones, he he described himself, and he's not always the best authority on himself. But he he he said how can I demonstrate my Marxism any in the thought occurred to infiltrate the church, and that's what he did. He started Indiana, eventually moved to California. It was in California, particularly in San Francisco where he found his greatest success. And so he he, you know, had fake hate the faith healings in his church. He was basically getting people to sign over their homes to him. He had a lot of welfare recipients and research, and he would divert their checks to his his ends in at the time. He used the people in people's temple to support various political causes in one thousand nine hundred seventy five for instance, they it is largely thought that he used improper electors bus them in from out of town to vote for George Mosconi Mosconi becomes mayor of San Francisco and people naturally call for an investigation. Because they got there was widespread voter fraud, San Francisco investigates and lo and behold who was in charge who the investigation, but the second in command at the people's temple who Jones had installed in the district attorney's office. So so deep into the local power structure was people's temple. But they were able to basically avoid any criminal prosecution for their various misdeeds because they had people in the district attorney's office, essentially got the mayor elected in San Francisco and one of the local powerbrokers were fawning over this guy, you take someone like Willie Brown who later became the mayor of San Francisco, he wrote to Fidel Castro that Jim Jones was a was a highly trusted brother in the struggle for liberation when Jones won a Martin Luther King humanitarian award ironic because this is a guy killed the more black people in the KU Ku Klux Klan leader ever. Did when he won that award Brown called him? A you know compared him tomorrow. Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi. Nothing could have been further from the truth. But you had all of these big wakes, including Jerry Brown who was the governor of California. Then as now he spoke at people's temple was when Carter first lady of the United States had dinner with Jim Jones when she can't paid for Jimmy Carter in nineteen seventy six she campaign which Jones Jim Jones introduced her when she spoke in San Francisco, she calls him on the telephone she actually referred Jones to her sister-in-law the president's sister. Jane Carter Stapleton who was involved in the ministry, and so it wasn't just local San Francisco politicians, but even all the way up to the United States, you have people that thought of John Jones is a great guy. The mayor of San Francisco appointed him to housing commission in quickly. May you know, God him to be the chairman of the housing commission in San Francisco, which is essentially made him the largest landlord in the city, which is a very scary thought when you think about how Jones treated his tenant. In Johnstown, I think what's remarkable about data. And most people don't believe that when I say because when you think about Jim Jones, you think guys like Ted Bundy, and John Wayne JC and Charles Manson, and you don't think of guys like that holding positions of responsibility in major American cities. But Jim Jones did dance. Lynn is my guest called city. Jim Jones Harvey milk in the ten days that shook San Francisco is the name of the book. So Harvey milk is assassinated by a guy the name of Dan white right now, I'm just kinda perusing Harvey milk's Wikipedia page here. And I can't say this for sure because I can't read every word of it. But is there any mention I'm don't get me wrong here, Dan. I'm my questioning your, you know, your your your your book. But is there even any mention on his page of Jim Jones whatsoever? This connection. I don't know if they mentioned a Jim Jones, certainly in the movie starring Sean Penn what Academy Award. There is no mention of his relationship with Jim Jones, which is remark. Because this is the biggest thing that he did this political career which was deposed Jim Jones in the Oscar winning documentary that Harvey Firestone marriage came out eighties. They mentioned people's temple in passing. But they don't note the connection between Jones and milk in. If you you know, in the last few years milk has really become kind of a gay Martin Luther King your there's an airport terminal in San Francisco airport that just got named in his honor. There's a California Public holiday honoring Harvey milk. He's he's faces on a postage stamp. His name is on a US navy ship Brock Obama gave him the presidential medal of freedom. It, of course, no one brings up the fact that he had this relationship with Jim Jones. We're wasn't just a relationship. I mean, Harvey milk was really one of the most aggressive boosters and propagandists for people's temple that there was and so to leave this out of the story, you know, it's airborne history to such a degree. There's some dishonesty nearby. Mission. Well, I I would think so because that's sort of what struck me when I was seeing the notes of the book, and that was one of the reasons that my curiosity was piqued. So again, the book is called called city. Jim Jones Harvey milk in the ten days that shook San Francisco, but Dan, let me just ask you here because we've had John before you've written a couple of books from a conservative perspective. Why the left hates America a conservative history of the American left. Something tells me you could either get numerous chapters out of what we've experienced here in the last. Well, certainly the last two years, but maybe even the last two months, we're a whole new book out of that. Right. Well, sure, I mean, and this certainly plays into current events, and again, white the assassin of Harvey milk was a protege of Dianne Feinstein was really mentored by her politically people don't talk about that they try to trae white sort of some deranged right-wing homophobes what reality, you know. This is a guy who supported gun control and affirmative action. He was sort of Representative of the public employees union on the board in now. Now, you know once he killed Bill. He became something different. And that is talked about two great degree in the books. And of course, there's a lot of a lot of figures, including someone like Jerry Brown who is still the governor of California who was the milk supporter. You think about camera Harris, the Senator from California ski a lot of attention her mentor. Coming up was Willie Brown in Willie Brown. Just like milk was a very very strong loyal supporter of Jim Jones in when when Brown wrote his memoirs, he acted as he said, you know, how it makes you wonder how so many politicians were duped by this guy as though he was sort of detached observer rather than an interested party rather than probably the politician who was the most by Jones. And so there is a rewrite of history that is Kurt people largely accepted it what I tried to do and writing called city was to correct. Some of these errors in to say. Hey, look, there's there's a very different story that's being overlooked here. And I spent ten years writing and researching this thing, and I think people who. Read it will realize that, you know, indeed, they have been duped. Well, the anniversary obviously is coming up the book time for that November eighteenth nineteen seventy eight when all those people died in in Jonestown in a story that you know, again, I think many of us who were live back. Then certainly remember. Well, Dan, thanks so much for coming on here. We appreciate it and good luck with the success of the book. Thank you, Mark. Appreciate it. Dan Flynn with Roger brands back. He's standing by before we get to traffic this afternoon. Let me tell you about the galman team. Great job. They can do for you. And I will tell you right now. And I think they would be honest with you to the market's changing a little bit. Maybe not quite as red hot as it was in the last year and a half. But that's why you need great agents at the Mark Neil gunman. There. My realtors there my friends too. I put a lot of trust into them last year to sell my home and find me another. And it's a tricky tricky circumstances, especially if you're trying to figure out.

"He's got the book out called cult city, the ten days that changed the world. This has to do with Jim Jones, the cult leader in San Francisco, and then Harvey milk. You know, who has a cult personality that follows him to this day. And it's it's interesting how the two stories because Jim Jones took the people for the peoples temple in San Francisco, seventy eight down to Guyana in South America. And Jim Jones was he you know, he's been painted as this Christians zealot. No, no, no, no. No. No, no. This guy didn't really even believe in God. This was a cult of socialism and communism. It Harvey milk. The you know, the pride icon to this day. Harvey milk was a big fan of Jim Jones. I mean, he went to the temple and said some of the best moments of his life with a temple and who else loved Jim Jones. Jerry Brown was a fan. Willie Brown was a fan Di Di PHI because Jim Jones was powerbroker San Francisco. He chaired the housing commission in San Francisco, people don't even know this. So he puts it all together in this book. But then he ties that into the Harvey milk situation because Harvey milk was was killed by Dan, white, George Mosconi was killed by Dan white ten days after the whole thing in Guyana goes down to fascinating book. But man, what you see in this book is how the media in San Francisco, California, and the world has totally whitewashed this and Hollywood and Hollywood it's as if this didn't happen. It's as if the things that these people were involved in never took place because they have so far distance themselves from Jim Jones a guy who they love. He was a powerbroker Jim shows. I mean, we got the most Cody center in San Francisco beautiful building convention center, named after George Mosconi who was who was murdered by. Dan, white. George Mosconi was a he was he was. George Mosconi was a guy who well, he had the reason why Dan white killed both of those people had nothing to do with homophobia or anything like that. They both reneged on promises that they made the damn white. And Dan white was obviously a hot head. And he went too far. He kills both. These these men, but it has nothing to do with homophobia nothing of the like. Yeah. His business partner and chief of staff was gay. There were gay gay. Dan, Dan, white was a Dianne Feinstein protege. He was that some hardcore right winger. Anyway, that interview is coming up in just a moment. You've got to stick around. Okay. So.

"Anita gets a win. But what happens is this experience in Florida galvanizes the gay rights movement. Nationwide. Harvey milk was active in combating this Harvey milk in his San Francisco cohort responded to this by banning orange juice or by. I'm sorry, boycotting orange juice in San Francisco bars. Any oranges spent much banning was use would be hard to do, but boycotting it was quite easy. And so nasty a clever parallel to the great boycott in favor of Cesar Chavez on the striking Mexican farmers. This really is like, this is what the energize left does now. Right? Boycott God, I'm kind of fruitfully boycott fruit and the Florida orange juice. People had done a really great job of creating a lot of cocktails that used orange juice, not just the tequila sunrise, but also the Harvey wall banger and all these different concoctions. I studied this for jeopardy. That's a screwdriver with Gagliano added really give me some more orange juice based cocktails. The workouts really gonna hit the gays where it hurts when it comes to breakfast because it's minosos, you know, it's, it's brunch. And so that is a real sacrifice. Well, and there was a there was a movement to substitute grapefruit juice, which works in some cocktails and not in others, like kick grapefruit is a little bit creepy mimosa. Yeah, not not as good. And also we know now, I mean the bipolar medication that I take is contra indicated with grapefruit juice. Wait, really, somehow the grapefruit juice blocks and messes with your absorption of certain chemical in a way that other citrus juices do not. That's right. So I am forbidden as someone who takes this medication forbidden from drinking grapefruit juice or having it even as any component. Can you have Fresca of? That's interesting. I don't think there's any actual grapefruit in Fresca that does a line with my intuition, and I think most people's intuition that there is something kind of weird and off about grapefruit juice that is not shared with other citrus fruits that weird kind of stomach bile taste. Certainly my daughter. Thinks that grapefruit. Juice does not qualify and same family as orange juice, but so along with a grapefruit or loan with a an orange juice boycott there was now within the the gay world and there many, many supporters more more vocal supporters, a sense that they needed to be organized and and this sort of was one of the impetus that pushed Harvey milk into a political career. Now, unfortunately, he was assassinated just a few years later, but she awoke a sleeping and very gauge giant. She did, but also a woke a sleeping and very anti-gay giant. So fast forward a couple of years, the boycott against orange juice and the politicisation of orange juice. I'm not gonna let you just get away with Atty, Phillip politicisation or whatever. He just said politicisation. I think politically little station politicals ation for little. There's no way as little as Asian. It's politicisation. It is political. It is politicisation politicisation politic. You said politicisation. It was the right number of syllables. Politicisation. You get points for having the right now, but it is like really trouble. That's why we should not say that we should say us politicizing politicisation to say politicizing of orange juice. So the orange juice growers, we're like, hey, I know you're kind of operating on your own time, but you're like the face of orange juice, and this is it's not just the boycott which because then of course, the conservatives were like drink more Harvey wall mongers. Actually, I think for briefly was like an upsurge in the gross amount of orange juice being consumed.
