Anonymous Calls on Psychiatry to Take a Stand

Note: Give them the truth, not the finger.

Note: Give them the truth, not the finger.

Anonymous has issued the following press release:

San Francisco, CA – May 14, 2009 – The American Psychiatric Association (APA) will begin its annual meeting this weekend in San Francisco. The Scientology cult and its various front groups, along with their bizarre “Industry of Death” sideshow, have promised to make the scene, warning the world about the kill-crazy, lobotomy-happy “psychs,” and recruiting new customers for the cult. But also in attendance on the City’s streets and sidewalks will be plenty of members of the “Anonymous” anti-Scientology activist network. Anonymous will be there as truth-tellers, to counter Scientology’s insane and dangerous ravings about the mental health profession, and to expose the cult for what it is: a multi-national criminal organization, set up with numerous do-gooder front groups, all working exclusively toward one openly-declared goal: the “global obliteration of psychiatry.”

When Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard published his book “Dianetics” in 1950, it did indeed become a best-seller of pop psychology for the layperson, as cult members ceaselessly claim. Although many psychiatrists, psychologists and other scientists wrote book reviews and op-ed pieces, pointing out the book’s countless absurd and demonstrably false assertions, it maintained a certain popularity among a fair number of people who didn’t know any better. Over the next few decades, as Scientology spread around the world, and fought it out with courts on issues ranging from practicing medicine without a license to burglary to kidnapping, it became easy for ordinary people to dismiss the cult as just a bunch of weirdos to whom various celebrities were inexplicably drawn.

But Scientology is much more than that. It is a meticulously crafted web of seemingly-benign false fronts and confusing financial flows. Scientology’s many front groups include the Citizens’ Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), Criminon, Narconon, and Applied Scholastics, and lots of others. The cult claims to be the “world’s fastest growing religion,” with anywhere from 8-15 million members, but mainstream demographic surveys and censuses have shown that the number of active members is closer to 55,000 worldwide, and declining. Scientology is currently under investigation and being prosecuted in several countries for a variety of human rights abuses and financial crimes. The cult has already been kicked out of Greece; in Germany it has been declared a “threat to democracy”; in France it is openly described in the media as a criminal gang; it is on very thin ice as well in Belgium, Norway, and other European countries.

In the United States, however, Scientology is mostly getting a free ride, due to the “religion” status it strong-armed from the Internal Revenue Service in 1993, and due to the efforts of a few celebrity and media shills. Also, especially in the past few years, Scientology has become quite adept in creating slick public relations materials that present the cult and its front groups as helpful members of civil society. They are most assuredly not helpful members of civil society. Scientology’s frequent use of the term “human rights” is just their euphemism for “obliterating psychiatry.”

Since the beginning of 2008, much has changed in the way the world and the general public view the Scientology cult. The Anonymous peaceful protests and demonstrations have shone a spotlight on Scientology’s bizarre and illegal practices. People no longer see Scientology as merely a weird and harmless cult. People have begun to understand Scientology’s “disconnection” policy, through which families are destroyed; people now know about the cult’s internal prison gulag called the “Rehabilitation Project Force”; people now know about Scientology’s “Fair Game” policy revenge policy against critics; people now know of the cult’s tough coercion of female staff members to have abortions; people know about the cult’s abusive treatment of children; about its phony “religious worker visa” game to circumvent immigration laws; people now know that Scientology really is what Time Magazine declared it to be in 1991: The Cult of Greed and Power.

Now, why should all this be particularly relevant to the interests of psychiatrists? As the “object” of the Scientology cult’s vicious and delusional animus, psychiatrists need to take a larger role in helping to expose the cult, and in taking legal and political measures to stop its lying and criminality. Perhaps, like many people who haven’t looked deeply into the issue, psychiatrists may generally believe that Scientology is annoying and stupid but mostly harmless. The fact is, however, that Scientology is annoying and stupid and dangerous. It is dangerous and harmful not only to its members and to the humane basis of society, but to psychiatrists personally and as a profession.

Scientology’s war on psychiatry has taken an ominous turn in recent years, as major public Scientology events feature images of hand grenades and machine guns destroying representations of “Psychiatry,” and Scientology front groups create online databases of libelous material about thousands of psychiatrists and other mental health professionals. Although Anonymous and the “Old Guard” of critics are fighting Scientology for all the reasons it deserves to be fought, one thing they are also doing, in a sense, is fighting psychiatry’s battle. Yet hardly a public word of encouragement comes from psychiatry, much less is an active role taken in their own defense. There is still plenty of work to do. It is time for psychiatrists and psychologists to speak up again in op-ed columns, to contact legislators, to file civil suits against the cult for libel and defamation, and generally to help with the efforts to hold Scientology and its leaders accountable for their actions.

Why is Scientology so mad at psychiatry?

According to the cult, psychiatrists are to blame for the African slave trade, the Holocaust, ethnic cleansing in the Balkans, the September 11 attacks, and virtually every bad thing that has ever happened in human history. Scientologists believe that “psychiatric rape” occurs at epidemic levels in the USA, and that 25-30% of psychiatrists rape their patients. They believe that psychiatrists use electroshock therapy and drugs to keep their victims quiet. Scientologists believe that electroshock therapy and lobotomy are very common, always involuntary procedures, performed exactly as they were done in the 1950s, and with the same effects. Scientologists believe that psychiatrists intentionally “network” sex offenders, specifically so they can learn from each other and do crimes together.

Beyond psychiatry’s evil deeds on this planet, L. Ron Hubbard explained some other things about the vicious shrinks.

According to high-level Scientology doctrine, not available to Scientologists until they have paid as much as USD $300,000, it started with some trouble 75 million years ago, in another part of the galaxy. The place suffered from extreme overpopulation. A guy named Xenu got the help of psychiatrists in summoning the galaxy’s inhabitants for an income tax inspection. Then each person was injected in the neck with a mixture of alcohol and glycol, frozen, and put inside space-planes that looked very much like the DC-8 airliner that was popular in the 1960s. These space-planes flew to Earth (then known as “Teegeeack”), where the beings were stacked inside several volcanoes around the planet. Then Xenu dropped some massively large hydrogen bombs on top of them and blew them into smithereens — but smithereens that turned into parasitic ghosts. After a bunch of other crazy shenanigans involving movie theatres, implanted memories, a train, a circus, a gorilla, etc. etc. etc., these parasitic ghosts, or “body thetans,” now attach themselves in clusters to everyone on modern-day earth, and are responsible for all human mental, emotional and physical problems.

Later in space history, psychiatrists of the Marcab Confederacy, planets around a star in the “handle” of the “Big Dipper” constellation, imposed income tax as a punishment, not as a tax. The Psychiatrists came to earth 8,200 years ago with the 5th Invader Force, and began their reign of terror.

Quotes about psychiatry from Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard:

A psychiatrist today has the power to (1) take a fancy to a woman (2) lead her to take wild treatment as a joke (3) drug and shock her to temporary insanity (4) incarnate [sic] her (5) use her sexually (6) sterilise her to prevent conception (7) kill her by a brain operation to prevent disclosure. And all with no fear of reprisal. Yet it is rape and murder. We want at least one bad mark on every psychiatrist in England, a murder, an assault, or a rape or more than one. This is Project Psychiatry. We will remove them. – Hubbard, Sec ED, Office of LRH, Confidential, 22 February 1966, “Project Psychiatry”

Setting himself up as a terror symbol, the psychiatrist kidnaps, tortures and murders without any slightest police interference or action by western security forces. […] A psychiatrist kills a young girl for sexual kicks, murders a dozen patients with an ice pick, castrates a hundred men. And they give him another million appropriation. […] Crimes of extortion, mayhem and murder are done daily by these men in the name of “practice” and “treatment.” There is not one institutional psychiatrist alive who, by ordinary criminal law, could not be arraigned and convicted of extortion, mayhem and murder. Our files are full of evidence on them. – L. Ron Hubbard in “Freedom” Scientology magazine, 1969.

Leipzig University’s school of psychology and psychiatry opened the door to death camps in Hitler’s Germany. Using drugs these men apparently gave Hitler to the world as their puppet. They tortured, maimed and slaughtered over 12,000,000 Germans in death camps. At the end of World War II these extremists formed the “World Federation of Mental Health,” which enlisted the American Psychiatric Association and the American Medical Association and established “National Associations for Mental Health” over the world, cowed news media, smashed any new technology and became the sole advisors to the US government on “mental health, education and welfare” and the appointers of all Health Ministers through [sic] the civilized world and through their graduate, Pavlov, dominated Russian Communist “mental health.” This source is so wrong that it is destroying Man, having already destroyed scores of millions. – L. Ron Hubbard, HCO PL 26 Nov 1970

  1. Scottsman Says:

    One of the more laughable elements of scientology is their hate-on for psychs.

    Get serious…

    Pseudo-science vs peer-reviewed science. That’s not a hard choice to make.

    I have one word to sum all this up…


  2. Tom Newton Says:

    The finger, huh?

    Promoting hate again Mark?

    How about this? FUCK YOU MARK.

  3. NoU Says:

    Tom, you seem to be the one exhibiting very intense emotions that seem way out of scale with what’s going on. I have my theories on that but at the minimum it’s pretty good evidence the one here who has the problem is you.

    Btw, that makes me happy.

  4. dr.fang Says:

    Um- hate to point out where you’re wrong there Tom; but Bunker said, “Note-give them the truth, not the finger”.

  5. dr.fang Says:

    To make it clearer for you “Clears”, that’s not promoting hate. That’s promoting truth.

    Are you sure you’ve word cleared “truth”? :-/

  6. Tom Newton Says:

    Um- hate to point out where you’re wrong there Tom; but Bunker said, “Note-give them the truth, not the finger”.”

    Is that what he said? Because it looks to me like he called that sort of action “standing up” for truth.

    Your Orwellian Double-Think is showing.


  7. anonymous Says:

    And your lack of reading comprehension is showing as well, Tom.

  8. XENU TV Says:

    Oh, he comprehends. And then he twists. He knows very well how he distorts the truth.

    That is why he has no chance of winning when all he has are lies.

  9. Tom Newton Says:

    ^FUCK YOU Mark Bunker. I’m taking a stand!

  10. XENU TV Says:

    Yes, I see you on your tippy-toes, seeking attention.

  11. Benjamin Cisco Says:

    Thanks for posting this. Forwarded on to a psychiatrist I know who hadn’t even heard about CCHR until Anonymous and their YT videos.

    He’ll enjoy reading this and passing it on to his peers.

  12. Sean Says:

    I’d just like to say that is a very long press release.

    I am familiar with the media, as is Mr. Bunker, and I’ve been told that press releases are intended to be one page.

    However, given that this is from the mysterious international group of intrigue known as anonymous, perhaps some journalists will read it all.

    An important point not made early is that the central goal of scientology, besides denigrating the psychiatry profession, is to recruit.

    The cult is intent on recruiting.

  13. dr.fang Says:


    How do you take, “…not the finger” as somehow endorsing giving a Scientologist the finger?

    Somewhere in that inner lizard brain of yours, Tom, you know that Mark and a lot of folks in Anonymous see you like a veterinarian sees a hurt puppy. You growl a lot, and nip when people extend a hand, but we know you aren’t really to blame for your own actions, and they still want what’s best for you-in spite of your actions. LRH and CoS has filled your head with a bunch of lies and screwed up your ability to think for yourself.

    Hopefully, one day you’ll be able to figure out that all these dox, court cases, and depositions saying basically the same thing can’t *all* be lies. If and when that happens, the same people that you call hate-spewing bigots will be ready and willing to help you reconstuct your life after you blow.

    And that’s not going to be easy. You’re going to be practically broke, homeless, and without any sort of education, family, credit history or employment history. Yet, these strangers that you believe to be evil incarnate will open their homes and wallets to you so that you can do something with what you have left of your life; with what life you haven’t wasted on Scientology.

    Not to say that all of Scientology is bad. There’s a lot of good things about it. The communications course, the organization, and a lot of the conditions formulas are sound and good advice.

    But, entwined along with the good is a string of self-serving evil. The Church doesn’t care if you spend all of your inheritence on courses. The Church doesn’t care if you have any money to retire with. The Church doesn’t care if you bankrupt yourself getting loans to buy courses. The church doesn’t care if you miss out on your high school education.

    Instead, it asks you to donate your money, dedicate your life and even sacrifice your health for the good of the Church. The Church does not exist for the good of it’s members; its members exist for the good of the Church.

    LRH did not “only speak truth”. There is no galaxy-wide Psych conspiracy. There are no “Suppressive” people. You are not on a bridge to “total freedom”. It’s all a paranoid fantasy that you’ve been hand fed one bite at a time until you didn’t know which way was up anymore.

    When you finally figure all this out, we’ll be here for you.

  14. celegar Says:

    My god Tom when it comes to scilons it doesnt matter how many claims that anonymous and even $cientologists themselves have proven they keep redenying it and when the proof is so overwhelming they say “So what?”

    Like Lisa Mcphearson, youre trying to claim that was debunked yet you forget at the time the documentation was out there and Mike Rinder admited it all.
    When it comes to child labour dispite all the many ex-$cientologists/freezoners that say its true they have been filmmed.
    When it comes to Xenu, dispite the years of released docs, ex-$cientologists/freezoners and the many hours of hubbard talking about it we have Tommy Davis coming on air and admitting thats its true saying “those beliefs are copyright and im tired of people bring them up”
    Dispite all the leaked docs on fair game the video footage of fair game, the court testimony of fair game, testimonies from ex-$cilons/freezoners. The head of $cientology in America and the then current spokesman admited it was true on television and confirmed that documents signed by hubbard were true! On air many times we’ve seen $cientologists deny it and on air we’ve seen those same $cientologists admit that its all true.

    The fact that youll deny any of what the very top people in $cientology have admitted to, either tells me you dont know, or that youre a liar always wanting to do damage control and never being honest. How can anyone trust a person like yourself who either denys facts proven again and again or doesnt have the gumption to do some research and find out whats true and what isnt?

    So the sources we have got these claims from are, ex-$cientologists, freezoners, family members, ex-PI, Ex-cops, current cops, lawyers, judges, the court system, FBI, documents, reporters, hidden cameras from inside the cult, documents currently being leaked, years worth of film footage, court testimonies, cult experts, your books and policy letters and the one youll be most foolish to deny, the very heads of $cientology admitting that its true.

    Try and look crediable will you Tom?

  15. mikethemarcabian Says:

    I’m starting to love Tom. Everything he says and does backfires. When exposed, he simply cusses. His effort at trolling is laughable. I give him less than 1/10.

    WBM should create a seperate page with all TN’s rantings so we casual visitors to this blog can see just how loony this guy is.

    It’s like he’s living in a world completely disconnected (haha) from the rest of us.

  16. Xeero Says:

    @Dr. Fang

    That summed things up exceptionally well. +1 internet to you for typing that amidst what’s typically more degrading (albeit amusing) banter.

  17. Harvey Says:

    If one looks closely at the cult of scientology, they resemble the Nazi’s in many frightening ways.

    One of the scariest is their Homo Novis master race BS. Another is their belief in acceptable murder (tone scale 2.0 or below comes to mind (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, Google it and what L-ron had to say about getting rid of those people to educate yourself, it’s worth your time)).

  18. CrazyDelaney Says:

    Hey Tom,

    Will you say you’re not a Scientologist again for me, please? It makes me laugh.

  19. we love Tom Says:

    LEAVE TOM ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ps. 🙂

  20. […] lobotomy-happy “psychs,” and recruiting new customers for the cult. But also in atte click for more var gaJsHost = ((“https:” == document.location.protocol) ? “https://ssl.” : […]

  21. Johnny B Says:

    Your ED page is more true every day Tom. Ever heard the saying “be the change you want to see”?

    For anyone who missed it, here’s Tom’s eerily accurate page at ED:

    Also – Tom, is that you posting under other names? The caps and space-wasting repetitive text gave you away I thought, but back on the Pat Harney Interview there’s a post under the pseudonym “Anonymous Double-Think”. And here you are talking about “double think”: something not typed out much here. Just curious. That would level up your cowardice if so! Grats on putting your wikipedia research to use!

  22. Spaghetti Monster Says:

    “ethnic cleansing in the Balkans” – The psyches are to blame?! WHAT … THE … F?

    As a person living in the Balkans, I can freely state that 99.9% of the population would NEVER – EVER seek psychiatric help, as it is considered that by doing so, you are instantly labeled as insane by the local community. There are no private therapists, and most psychiatrists only work for the military, a few in the police department and others in mental hospitals.

    The fuel that created clashes on the Balkans is pure hate and ignorance, and is certainly not the product of psychiatry.

    I know Scientology and it’s teachings are blatant lies, but now they have really crossed the “hurr durr” line of stupidity.

    .!. <– my finger

    Also, Tom, it’s very easy to promote a religion when everything in your pathetic life is hunky-dory, but it seems that when problems arise, you’re all screwed, since your cult can’t even deal with the basic problems of our lives these days…

  23. 3rdMan Says:

    Very impressive press release. Hope the press gets a hold of this. but psychiatry seems to take a “ignore the crazy cultists” stance ever sense Scientology started their campaign.

    This is a very good press release. Research-oriented, clear and to the point, and tells the whole story behind CCHR and L. Ron’s anti-psychiatry campaign. Nice job fellow Anons.

  24. John Says:

    How can Anonymous send out a press release?

  25. BunkersOneOfUsGiveHimMoneyDonateNow Says:

    Why hasn’t Tom Newton finished “shredding anonymous” and brought about our destruction….? Oh wait that’s right Tom just needs to quote ED a little more and then everyone will believe him. Well before Tom starts lurking let me ask a rhetorical question to him: can he provide “evidence” about any so called crime committed by anonymous if he cant use ED as a source. Can he quote any “proof” without having to twist the story and add in a URL for some ED page that has nothing to do with peaceful protesting of the cult of $cientology. Oh who am I kidding TomBot won’t die unless ED goes offline and Toms infinite source of everything anonymous goes away and he can’t provide “absolute hard evidence” any more (hahahah evidence, lol) Like how every member of anonymous and you too Tom for going their yourself to jack off to pink bears and those others who only visit ED and all of which are obvious pedophiles right. Blah blah blah I can’t believe he thinks he can win against a whole army of people who all universally don’t know or even care about each other but who all share a common bond….. they have had very negative experiences with the cult of $cientology. And the best thing is the blown members bring new information with them everytime they leave the cult and we use that to wage our war which is practically at its middle. I know anonymous has YEARS of fighting still to do but let me ask you this… the cult or anonymous? Who can outlast who? We need very little money and resources to practically shut down the church and restrict any new members and hurt its public image all with almost no money or resources and very little supplies and yet on the other hand they spend hundreds of millions of dollars a year on all sorts of fail shit and its gets them nothing but big fancy empty building and when they harass newcomers those being harassed get embolden and they now feel like it is personal and they feel the fight against the cult is a just fight and deserves ALOT of the individuals time and money and effort. The cult is after all the cults worst enemy. By attacking everyone they create new anti-$cientology supporters everyday, not just anonymous but everyday normal people who got mixed up in fair game by asking a simple question to a scilon like “What is your religion about? Is it really about aliens and lots of forced donations?” and then boom they are followed and harassed and fair gamed and then right their $cientology has a new life long enemy who would have probably forgot it if the cult didn’t push the person into taking a real stance against them. And new ideal orgs filled with nothing but empty air is not gonna go well when you got bills and lawyer fees and court cost and PR boners left and right cuz I for one will never give up. I know the hard core anons who will never and I mean never stop fighting the cult. And now we can do more with less. I mean after all in the beginning with almost 12 thousand members shit wasn’t popping in the news all that much but now as were down to a few thousand world wide the TV and Internet are alive with anti-$cientology stories. We may not be able to make your current brainwashed members quit but I can say with absolute assurance that you will not be getting any new members and eventually you will bleed them dry and they will physically have no more money and you will be forced to sell scilon properties and maybe even the rights to some LRH copyrights. Oh fuck it I’m tired of telling the world were winning and $cientology has been losing for at least the early 90’s when stat drops were at their worst then a slight rebound in the early 2000’s with the help of celebs but even now ask yourself this: When was the last time a real, for real type, celeb publicly praise scilon and said they support it as a whole other than Will Smith or other cultist that been indoctrinated. When did you see Juliet Lewis or fat ass Kirstie or Giovanni Ribisi or that blond dyke at a CCHR function. FUCK YOU $CAMOLOGY. anonymous legally can’t fail.

  26. Anon Says:

    Oh “Tom Newton” Jonathon Barbera, hows Scientology workin out for you these days? oh haha I just remembered, they didn’t let you back in yet. Hows life being an ‘SP’?

  27. 3rdMan Says:

    To John:
    Lurk on WWP more. Anons have been sending press releases for a long time now, like for more than a year. The press release isn’t about being psychiatry’s PA, doesn’t even suggest it. Its pretty much to boost awareness of the scam that is CCHR.

    If anything, it seems to encourage the American Psychiatry Association to take a stand or be informed for their own defense against the CCHR’s bullshit. Same deal with do with everyone we talk to. Inform them so they won’t get played by the Co$.

  28. Laughing Man Says:

    Hello every buddy, you can see this video of an action against CO$ in Argentina

    Comments are wellcome =)
