Putting the Dumb in Freedom
Scientology has just spread a new libelous flyer around Jeff Jacobsen’s neighborhood. This is an old tactic of Scientology which they’ve used less frequently in recent years but which seems to be making a comeback. It’s funny how whenever you think perhaps Scientology is reforming, they just prove you wrong with some disgusting behaviour straight from the L. Ron Hubbard playbook.
This flyer is distributed by “Religious Freedom Watch” which is a front group set up by Scientology to smear it’s critics. It used to be called “The Scientology Parishioners’ League” but that had Scientology in the name. When people would get a flyer saying “so and so” is a religious bigot and then saw that Scientology was the “religion” in question, they would tend to giggle and toss the flyer away.
Thus was born “Religious Freedom Watch.” High minded. Sounds socially relevant. We can all get behind that as Americans.
That’s the idea behind all of the names of Scientology’s front groups:
“The Citizen’s Commission on Human Rights” – Attacks Psychiatry
“The Concerned Businessmen of America” – Spreads Scientology material through schools
“The World Literacy Crusade” – Spreads Hubbard educational materials as recruiting tools
This latest flyer paints a portrait of Jeff that is completely skewed from the reality of who he is. There are few people who are more generous, kind-hearted or peace-loving than Jeff. He is a great promoter of Gandhi tech at pickets, insisting that peaceful, non-violent approaches to righting a wrong is the only way to go.
If you read the flyer, you’d get the impression that Jeff is some maniacal madman whose friends are the lowest deviants on the planet. You’d think that Jeff is a porn impressario who wants to enslave young children in sex rings when not planning the next Oklahoma City bombing.
That’s what they want you to think. And that’s why the internet is such an important tool, for you can actually see and hear Jeff for yourself. Watch this man and see if he looks dangerous to you:
Now Scientology has upped the ante. They are suggesting…no, they are basically stating flat out that Jeff committed crimes while working years ago in the mental ward of a hospital. To make the charges stick, they print spooky pictures of Jeff dressed in medical garb.
These pictures were taken on Hollywood Blvd. last year at a picket in L.A. where Jeff wore the doctor’s smock to point out the horrible death of Lisa McPherson under Scientology’s care. You can watch my video of the picket and see just how “dangerous” Jeff is”
Another despicable tactic they use is the anonymous slur. In this case, it is a supposed tell-all, come-clean admission of remorse from a “former co-worker” at the hospital who claims Jeff is deviant and sadistic. No name is attached. No way to verify if this person even exists.
Look at Scientology’s publications. Very rarely do you ever see a name listed. They don’t like listing names. Here it’s all initials. KR swears by Scientology. MR loves it. PW says it changed his or her life.
My favorite example of this happened while I was living in Clearwater. Scientologist Mary DeMoss quickly became a star of XENU TV. She started a front group called the Foundation for Religious Tolerance. Announced it proudly at a City Commission meeting and then promptly bragged in a Scientology magazine that she was the sole member and she set it up just to attack the LMT. The quote was attributed to MD! Hard to trace that one.
Jeff pointed out the fraud at a later meeting. No wonder they don’t like him. And no wonder they hate the internet.
Hopefully, Jeff will take Scientology to court and get this issue addressed properly. They can start by calling as a witness the man who claims to be the force behind Religious Freedon Watch, Joel Phillips. Of course, since he is the boss, he would also be a defendant.
Jeff has a collection of similar flyers Scientology has used against other critics in the past. As the St. Pete Times‘ might say, this is just one more way Scientology is unlike any other religion we know.Explore posts in the same categories: Front Groups
