Women’s Hall of Fame Inducts Jim Jones Sycophants

Her greatest role.

The National Women’s Hall of Fame inducts not one but two of Jim Jones’s most fervent celebrity supporters this year.

During research for Cult City: Jim Jones, Harvey Milk, and 10 Days That Shook San Francisco, Jane Fonda and Angela Davis appeared as two supporters of Jim Jones so devoted that when damning allegations sent others running from the Peoples Temple leader the pair stuck by him. But once Jones orchestrated the deaths of over 900 people in the Guyanese jungle, Fonda, Davis, and other sycophants of the psychopath developed a case of amnesia that proved so contagious that even those vehement in their criticism of the Vietnam-era radicals forget their boosterism of a mass murderer.
