Tony Ortega:

Our friend and fellow journalist Mark Ebner alerted us last night to a fairly mindblowing statement posted on Twitter on Monday afternoon. The Legoland theme park in Carlsbad, California announced that it is donating $10,000 to the Scientology front group Youth for Human Rights, and in the name of actress Jenna Elfman.
The timing was apparently not an accident. Just minutes before that tweet was posted, Elfman had been the celebrity guest who helped Legoland California turn on the lights of its annual Christmas tree.

I strongly suspect that Jenna Elfman tricked Legoland into donating to a Scientology front group, so it will be interesting to see how they handle it from here.

Tony O's post at the bunker is very good and he posted about how the President of the Church of Scientology International (Heber Jentzsch) was incarcerated in The Hole for many years and released for a few hours so he could "talk at a 2006 Scientology event for some 20 minutes about the church’s plan to use Youth for Human Rights to spread its influence into every nation on earth in a video we posted back in September."

An excerpt from Tony's post:

The twisted logic of using Heber Jentzsch to talk about Scientology’s efforts in human rights is one of those times when words like “irony” and “hypocrisy” simply fail to express what’s going on. When you watch that 2006 video, you’re seeing a man who, since 2004, had been held in a literal prison for top Scientology executives known as “The Hole.” Yes, eyewitnesses place Heber Jentzsch in the Hole from about 2004 to at least 2009, and he had been pulled out of that prison just long enough to attend this 2006 event to talk about Scientology’s efforts in human rights around the world. It’s a neat example of what Scientology is doing on a larger scale with these efforts — using vague “good works” to distract attention from Scientology’s own failings concerning human rights.

Scientologist Jenna Elfman brings the murder rate in Carlsbad to a standstill by applying LRH tree lighting tech.

While the world’s 2nd most famous actor in all the world was lighting the Christmas tree in Legoland, 15,000 Way To Happiness pamphlets were still in there boxes at Bridge publications.

While no pamphlets were given out just the power of LRHs intention had come through; and during the time that Ms Elfman was at Legoland NO MURDERS WERE COMMITTED in all of Carlsbad CA and Lego Land.

Proving once again the power of LRH intention

This is true

I've always suspected that company owners/capitalists love Scientology.. They observe all those 'happy' fools working long hours for nothing and never complain or go on strike. And if they do, throw them in a prison workcamp where they work even longer and cheaper, and if that don't get 'em to shut up, declare them bloody supressive and sue 'em for a million dollars!

I think that's like an ideal scene for Lego's owners?

Legoland is a children's toy and Jenna represents sexuality boarderline porn on multiple occasions.

Jenna Elfman has made videos discussing her frequent sexual intercourse in an effort to be "cool" and "modern"
In one video she made a statement about "blowing a horse" Tony O posted the video, if someone could find it.

If you would care to drop comment on her vulgar videos, leave a comment here>

It's fairly typical that when a celeb does something, turns on lights, opens an event, their 'fee' is usually donated to a nominated charity, Jenna probably nominated Youth for Human Rights. It doesn't mean that Legoland supports or endorses it.

"In reality the church is a hugely profitable global racket that survives by intimidating members and critics in a Mafia-like manner" (TIME magazine 1991) The $10,000 Legoland "donated" supports this, not a charity.

Lego-land Park in California Sparks Outrage with $10,000 Donation to Scientology Group

By Roger Friedman, Showbiz411

Legoland in Carlsbad, California must be desperate for celebrity involvement. In exchange for a Christmas tree lighting appearance by TV actress Jenna Elfman, Lego donated $10,000 to a Scientology group in honor of the cult member.

<snipped>

The donation to YHRI has already sparked outrage on Twitter. I discovered it thanks to the indefatigable Tony Ortega, who writes a fuller version of the story on his website. Ortega writes:

“Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) was founded in 2001 by Scientologist Dr. Mary Shuttleworth, who has also tried to push Scientology on the nation’s schools through the front group Applied Scholastics. Like other Church of Scientology front groups, YHRI pretends to have a benign purpose that has nothing to do with Scientology. In this case, YHRI is one of several groups under the umbrella United for Human Rights that has created videos and pamphlets based on the principles spelled out in a 1948 United Nations proclamation, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”

A little addition: Actress Marisol Nichols is the Advisory Board Chairperson for YHRI. She’s a huge Scientologist, with dozens of courses behind her, and no doubt millions of dollars in donations raised.

Tony has just posted that Inside Edition have contacted him about this story.

Scientology is the definition of the toxic brand.

Therefore, the question arises as to why the Church of Scientology’s Youth for Human Rights group would spend money to tell American children that they have the right to move to another state or own property?

According to advocates against the Church of Scientology — people who claim the group is a cult — the answer is Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard has always tried, with the help of the organization’s front groups, to find ways to get children to talk about the Church of Scientology and have the children look into the benefits of joining the organization.

Legoland’s donation is a significant one for Youth for Human Rights. The Scientology group does not pay their employees. In addition, the group spends most of its money on pamphlets and videos, in addition to holding conferences.

"UPDATE: We received a response from Legoland California media relations manager Julie Estrada. Here’s what she sent us in an email…

“We invite our tree lighting guests, without prejudice, and provide a small donation to their charity of choice in appreciation of their participation.”

We had asked her if Legoland California was aware that Youth for Human Rights was a Scientology front, but we’re apparently not going to get an answer to that question."

Yes, what they did was stupid, and maybe this will be the wake up call for them to first check out organisations before they donate.

What I know about Lego, and not sure whether Legoland California is affiliated, or in fact any of the Legolands, is that they are VERY involved with UNHCR. They supply the refugee camps in Syria and Jordan with Lego and are quite active on the ground with the kids.

They have been duped.
