Thanks, LB. Ya, I re-listened to the 2nd vid. CRAZY stuff, huh? How could ANY SO Member STAY after listening to these vids now, huh? (I know, I know, some of them that do watch these.. they'll simply 'disagree' with them, 'deny' them, 'justify' them, blablablaaaa )
I agree WO, that's why there are so many XSO around here saying "DUH WTF was I thinking???" I still haven't figured it out, but I am sure a degree of hypnosis and psychological manipulation and abuse were involved.
Hubbard did say a few anti-semitic things publicly but most of his references to "Jews" were couched in terms about bankers and moneymen and other Jewish stereotypes:
From the Anti-Defamation League's "Challenging Anti-Semitism: Debunking the Myths & Responding with Facts ":
MYTH #2: Jews control the banks, media, Hollywood, and even the U.S. government; Jews have a secret plot to take over the world
Where does it come from?
Anti-Semites point to “The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion” as proof of a Jewish conspiracy to dominate world political and economic sectors as well as media. This proven forgery, written by agents of the Russian czar in the late 19th century, claims to be the minutes of a secret meeting of Jews that details plans of Jewish leaders to rule the world. The proven forgery spread throughout the 20th century and continues to this day to promote the stereotype that the Jews own the banks and control the media.
