Their motto? Always attack, never defend. You can see how well it has served them lo these many years!
If you watch the Scn vid with the sound off, it looks like there are missing persons that COS is hiding and that the big letter crimes across the screen are COS crimes against these people as victims.
I'll bet Anonymous could have a bit of fun doing their own voiceovers to this vid.
Seems like they are not finished. Scientology posted up this video yesterday. They are mad because HBO didn't reply to all them letters.
What a boring piece of overkill. All those animated letter icons flying around and not really meaning anything, just like asserting that someone called or e-mailed HBO or Alex Gibney over and over and over. That video could have made its point such as it was in a minute or two, but noooooo they had to drone on and on with that busy library music in the background. The HBO program was tightly edited and makes this thing look whiny and full of sour grapes. ScienCorp always tries to marshal a bunch of volunteers together to make a point but they can't hide the decades of bad-to-illegal behavior and dictatorial policy and it really pisses them off to face the music in the court of public opinion.
Eric M. Lieberman is the Cult of Scientology's key human rights attorney, and he's proud to state on his website that he's been shilling for the cult for some 40 years now. He's the snake of all snakes, on one hand pretending to be a human rights advocate, and on the other smashing individuals on behalf of Scientology every chance he can. He plays both sides of the coin, has a great reputation for confusing issues and judges. Sometimes he pushes copyright law as if the church is a business, and other times he uses the First Amendment to support the cult's vicious treatment of perceived enemies and RPF prison and re-indoctrination program. He has a long list of victims that just happens to include those most seriously harassed by the cult (which harassment he defended), including Paulette Cooper, Lisa McPherson, Marc Headley, Larry Wollersheim, Gerry Armstrong, Jesse Prince, Andre Taboyoyon and Graham Berry, to name just a few. Lieberman has even popped up for Monique Rathbun's court case. He has been integral to the deals with the IRS and, in addition to pushing his First Amendment protection of the cult and even influencing senators and legislation regarding its application, Lieberman has also been involved with every major Scientology tax court case in the US.
If ever there was a lawyer who is a complete sociopath bulldog for the cult, IMHO, it's Eric Lieberman.
He's got to be in his 70s by now, or close to it. No doubt he's not as sharp as his old days and relies on his reputation more than his skills.
He's a Scientology whore and runs to its court cases like a vampire smelling blood. It completely disgusts me to see someone with his education who has done nothing with it but smash human rights and legitimize and legalize the mistreatment of individuals. He regularly and systematically sweeps Scientology's crimes away.
If there is to be any lawsuit or court case on behalf of Scientology, Lieberman will be there.
This time, if it happens, I hope he gets knocked right out of the legal ring, humiliated and chastised, only to be eaten alive by the vicious dogs of Scientology he's defended all these years.
And wouldn't that be justice if he personally ended up labeled SP and fair gamed by the cult and locked up in that very hole in Hemet that he likes to tell others does not exist?
How come there is no return address or further details on the Cof$ letterhead?
Lack of that info makes one wonder just how genuine it is. Those sort of serious intent letters, while fun, need verification of authenticity.
Are they for freaking real? They went to an asthma expert to counter a paragraph in a BOOK? I didn't think I could possibly laugh any harder than I have been in this thread. I wonder how many people got credit in their weekly stats for this one. OMG this is about the most pathetic thing I've ever seen!
One thing annoying about the cult's attack videos is the narration, which drones on attacking relentlessly, accompanied by annoying background music. There's no balance or restraint at all. It's attack all the way, never defend or even discuss. It also reminds me of Miscavige's style in speeches, as he drones on spouting stats about miles of wire and feet of cable, thinking the more stats he throws out, no matter how stupid, it makes him sound convincing. There can't be any pauses for the listener to question the validity of what he's saying, or give them a chance to think.
And I agree with others who have noticed that the elephant in the room of these attack videos, is any refutation or even comment about the biography of L. Ron Hubbard by Wright/Gibney as presented in the documentary. They can't even even quote Ron and claim he "didn't have a second wife."
When they say things like Marty put his "fist in the face" of his ex-wife, okay, so he shook his fist at her, is that what he did? And he may have threatened to send her to the moon, but is that it? Seriously, he didn't hit her or anything, so they have to word Marty's losing his temper like it's a big crime.
Marty slapped enough people around, you'd think they'd talk about that, instead of playing word games. Perhaps they don't want to remind the remaining zombies that Slappy didn't do anything about Marty's psychopathic rampage for three years while he was Slappy's right-hand man.
We all know it is a show for the members, because they're the only ones who are going to believe both Wright and Gibney are evil and worthy of condemnation, because L. Ron Hubbard is the greatest...and anyone who says he isn't is a...and must be destroyed.
About Slappy getting violent during an asthma attack when he was a kid, so why doesn't he say how he was? True, most people are gasping for breath and kind of panicking during an attack, but maybe he was the exception, and it triggered other emotions, like anger. This is possible, although uncommon. He was probably the exception.

Pardon my scepticism about DM's violence having been brought on by an asthma attack, but I'd be inclined to go with Dr Shapiro's expertise in this field and suggest that that was most likely a convenient excuse.
