Scientology Labeled a Hate Group

The evil psychs finally strike back at the CCHR.

Original text:

SAN FRANCISCO, May 20 — Physicians gathering for the American Psychiatric Association annual meeting here were greeted with a noisy street protest by the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), an offshoot of the Church of Scientology.

From its earliest days in the 1950s, Scientologists have waged a campaign accusing the psychiatric profession of a range of abuses. Now conducted under the CCHR’s banner, the campaign currently portrays psychiatry as an “industry of death.”

Demonstrations like the one at this year’s meeting have become a fixture at the annual gatherings.

In this exclusive MedPage Today video report, APA President Nada Stotland, M.D., explains what it’s like for a medical society that has, as she put it, its own dedicated hate group — the impact on practicing psychiatrists, and how the group has responded.

    The cult getting a taste of their own medicine I think, they accuse anyone and everyone who stands against them of bigotry, or of being members of a hate group etc. can’t wait to see how they react.

    they’ll probably say something along the lines of “no no, we have legitimate concerns about psychiatry, we’re not a hate group.”

    Well what about anonymous? they say they have legitimate concerns about you.
    “well they’re just a hate group.”

  2. Tom Newton Says:

    Anonymous and Mark Bunker cannot accept the “hate group” designation for the CCHR without accepting it for Anonymous.

    And CCHR is to Scientology what Anonymous is to the Antii-Scientology Racket.

    Wrong, Tom. CCHR was created expressly to destroy Psychiatry. They do so with lies, slander and a co-ordinated campaign of misinformation.

    I point out Scientology’s lies and abuse and ask them to reform.

  4. Ironhead Says:

    Anonymous pretends to be no ones friend tom. CCHR is a wolf in sheeps clothing.

  5. Tom Newton Says:

    Oh yeah, Anonymous destroyed lots of others before turning their sites on Scientology.

    And you do more than “point out” things, Mark. You engage in Demagoguery for Profit.

    @Tom Newton

    and may I point out one major differance. the APA is willing and able to address every concern that the CCHR puts forth, and they are fully capable of retorting with actual facts and pure research. and yet Scientology/CCHR continues it’s campaigns of misinformation. sticking to whatever mudslinging that it can, like a spoiled child unable to accept the truth.

    Scientology deliberately evades criticism like the plague and Never ever addresses any concerns anyone might have about them, unless by pre authorized responses from upper executives. or simply by once again acting like spoiled children, closing their ears and going “LALALALALALALALA I CAN’T HEAR YOU!!”

    right, time to make the post that shuts tom up because he cant argue against it.

    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?

  8. 3rdMan Says:

    So how about that video? (stay on target!)

    CCHR = hate group?

    I’m impressed. CCHR has earned their title quite well. So many years of bullshit without referenced facts with intent to destroy, and we now see how psychiatrists and probably the general mental health community see them: a hate group. Years of Scientology labeling all critics as hate mongers and bigots, and so it seems the CCHR more accurately fits the description for a group of bigots. Is it irony? Nope, just a plane fact.

    Any Scientologist who’s a CCHR member/supporter, please do something better with your time (like blow the cult) and leave [i]real[/i] psychiatry criticism to honest & sensible critics. Your giving the rest a bad image.
    Or at the very least do a better and honest job instead of using bullshit conspiracy theories (which are unprovable) and downright lies.

  9. V Says:

    @ Tom Newton or Tom Vigil of NM (yes, your IP exposes the truth, your not so Anonymous now are you?)

    CCHR is a Scientology front group. FACT
    You run a hate blog. FACT
    Why did you delete all of the “Anonymous Exposed” info off of your Twitter account? Because you “FAIR GAMED” all of the people and it was against the ULA and federal laws? Worried about getting arrested for your cause?
    CHICKEN SHIT!

    At least Mark Bunker has the fortitude to stand up for what is right.

    We all know who he is, he has photo and video images posted online. Why do you hide? It’s easier to be a coward than a target right Tom?

  10. XENU TV Says:

    Please don’t post phone numbers. Whether it’s the real Tom or not, it’s not the right thing to do.

    Yes, I know all my info has been posted online. That doesn’t mean I want revenge in any way. I’m content to just tell the truth and watch Scientology become more downstat.

  11. New Tom Says:

    Why even bother responding to newton? Just pass his responses by when checking ALL pages he lurks on. He never provides facts or dox or anything to substantiate his claims. ED is not proof. His opinion is accusations are not proof. fighting with him waste timed and energy that you could be doing elsewhere that can make a difference. until the cult is destroyed you will have douches like Tom Newton who can’t do anything but make up the same old bullshit lies and comments about George Orwell double speak and pedophilia and bomb threats and hate group assaults that don’t take place or whatever he does. All his effort doesn’t influence anyone except maybe pushing an unsure nube to our side. He hurts the image of $cientology (what about that cult doesn’t). But still let him continue to help bring about their downfall. Him trolling sounding like a in denial brainwashed cultist helped me to see all scilons this way. HE MAKES ANONYMOUS’ JOB MUCH MUCH EASIER. After all when has Tom ever really “gotten” anything on us like we did on his cult. Where are the independent investigations into anonymous???? I don’t see them. But i do see MANY MANY for the cult…. just think about it this way: TOM IS THE BEST ANONYMOUS CONTRIBUTOR WE HAVE

    Dear Mr Newton-

    You may chose to ignore this at your own risk. I am psych success story. I use a psych drug to treat my speech impediment and paranoia. It works. It makes me a better father, husband, and all around better person in this mostly insane world. I am sure you will not believe this, but why should I listen to anything you have to say about ANON when you will not listen to the truth about what good things psychiatry has done for me?

    I await a short-sided and witless reponse.

  14. Cornelius Futz Says:

    Good to see this video of Dr. Stotland just saying what is common knowledge for thinking people. That psychiatrists have gained more respect over the last decades as conditions such as depression and schizophrenia have become more treatable. As inexact as it is, the treatment of mental disorders has improved considerably. Fifty years ago, greater numbers of people were institutionalized.

    She also points out the danger of the movie star/authority-on-the-mind fanatic like Cruise, in swaying popular opinion enough for mentally fragile people to be confused about the treatment they are receiving, or that some might become paranoid about seeking treatment.

    The understanding that Scientology thinks it is building about psychiatry with its industry-of-death touring sideshow, has instead served to build people’s awareness of Scientology as a weird, secretive, and dangerous mind-control cult, and a money scam. At least for the people who are able to make the CCHR/Scientology connection.

    It was good Dr. Stotland mentioned the lunacy of Scientology holding psychiatrists responsible for the Holocaust but I think when speaking to a reporter who may cover this story for the general public (this reporter wasn’t for the general public), it would help people’s understanding if she mentioned Scientology’s origins as a “science of the mind” and that Hubbard, a college drop out, got mad when his bogus therapy to cure blindness and the mentally ill wasn’t embraced by the medical community.

    So, at that time, he transformed it into a “religion.” (She could make quote marks with her fingers.)


  15. […] FINALLY: American Psychiatric Association labels Scientologists as “dedicated hate group” Posted at May 21, 2009 The evil psychs finally strike back at the CCHR. […]

  16. Johnny B Says:

    I am glad the psychs are finally doing something about Scientology. It’s good to see them stand up for a change.

    I must say I agree with Scientology in only one aspect of Psychiatry – I don’t agree that drugging people fixes things. IF a drug works, it’s only a temp fix until something stronger comes around.
    But choosing not to engage Psychiatric drugs as an option to fix a problem Psychiatry diagnoses is a choice like not shopping at Wal Mart or not buying Chinese drywall. I have no trouble with Psychiatry’s existence as a field of study. If they end up being a truly evil group, then they will be exposed as such and they’ll disappear just like Wal Mart or Chinese drywall manufacturers.

    On a separate note: Tom, are you not getting enough attention lately? I’ve noticed you’re resorting to all bold letters now when you lash out at people whom you think are lashing out at others.

  17. Cornelius Futz Says:

    @Johnny B

    I honestly don’t get what you are writing about. For example, schizophrenics aren’t drugged until something “stronger” comes along. They are drugged until a better drug, one which is more EFFECTIVE, less harsh, which usually means has fewer side effects, comes along.

    Part of a doctor’s skill is in treating patients as individuals. Drugs, and their dosage, can vary widely in individuals.

    In medicine, what would you suggest as a substitute for drugs? Massage? Acupuncture? Past-life regression? Healing electronics?

    Of those, I think massage can be very helpful, and even aid in healing, but it is not going to help tons of serious illnesses. The only non-drug new frontiers are probably in things like gene therapy and robotic surgery.

    There are no cures for schizophrenia, or Alzheimer’s. That doesn’t mean medical science has stopped looking for cures, but to date, they’ve found that talk therapy or other non-drug therapy, which may work on some depression, or some people who have phobias, will not work on people who have severe mental illness like schizophrenia or Alzheimer’s.

    They are working pretty hard on gene therapy, and that is non-drug. If they find that can help with certain mental illnesses I trust they will use it. that. Medicine could transit from drugs to gene therapy in the next hundred years.

    Let’s say all medicine one day ends up being about gene therapy, introducing something in the body that will kill only a specific type of cancerous cells, or regenerate damaged tissues.

    That wouldn’t phase Scientology. Scientology is not about healing, ending crime or drug use. They are about making money by inducing FEAR in people. Fear of drugs. Fear of going to a shrink. Their own propaganda at one time gave people the choice between killing themselves or Scientology. How obvious can it get that they prey on people vulnerabilities.

    In that way, they are a lot more “evil” than Walmart. Walmart just wants to make money, by making common products available in a manner in which is affordable to middle class and poorer people. At least they are selling people cheap goods, rather than bogus promises of super powers. In other words, while it may be harmful to some people, and they can exploit workers unfairly, for their profit, there’s no brainwashing scam involved.

    So, you think Wal Mart is disappearing because they are evil, and wipe out small business owners in communities? I don’t see any evidence of them disappearing in the near future. During this downturn, Walmart and McDonald’s are flourishing.

    Dear Mr Newton-

    You may chose to ignore this at your own risk. I am psych success story. I used to molest kittens, dogs, and snakes. I use a psych drug to treat my paranoia. It works. Well, that and I finally gave up the ganja.

    It makes me a better father, husband, and all around better person in this mostly insane world. I am sure you will not believe this, but why should I listen to anything you have to say about ANON when you will not listen to the truth about what good things psychiatry has done for me and my sex life?

    I’m a sex animal and i love sex with animals. This, according to your Master LRH would brand me a “1.1” and would necessitate the R2-45 Treatment, which involves murder! There’s nothing better than a full grown boa constrictor forcibly inserted into ones anus
    to make the act of dog-frigging into something transcendent. But I wouldn’t expect you to understand something so complex, being a simple, gay-hating Scilon.

    Do yourself a favor Tom Newton: grope a dog. You’ll be glad you did. I await a short-sided and witless reponse.

  19. dr.fang Says:

    “Demagoguery for profit”, Tom?

    Just how much do you think Bunker takes in in donations? How much do you think he spends in his travels, hosting a website, buying equipment, etc.?

    Seriously, just how much “profit” could there possibly be, because last time I checked Bunker was still holding down a day job, and fighting Scientolgy not for profit, but because he was passionate about keeping people from being abused, slandered and defrauded by the Church of Scientology.

    I’d be surprised if he broke even.

    It’s like accusing a member of Staff or the Sea Org for doing “Scientology for profit”.

    Not that the Church seems to have any problem whatsoever in turning a profit…

    “MAKE MONEY. MAKE MORE MONEY. MAKE OTHER PEOPLE PRODUCE SO AS TO MAKE MORE MONEY.”

    – L. Ron Hubbard, Hubbard Communications Office Policy Letter, 9 March 1972, MS OEC 384

    There, Tom. There’s your “profit”.

  20. Bill W Says:

    I guess I deserve all of the junk written about me for being honest and forthright. Sure, resort to attacking the subject instead of facing the truth. Sounds like Tom got bored.

    I suppose that’s all ok. Right Mark???


  21. IS THERE A BILL W. HERE?

    WE ARE HERE TO PICK UP A BILL W!

  22. Anonymous Says:

    Mark stop feeding the troll. Tom Newton is trolling man. By responding you dignify his claims in a fashion. Also, Desu~.

  23. Tom Newton Says:

    I’m seriously not a Scientologist but Scientology is amazing!

    Hey! Its Will Smith! Welcome to the WOG Blog, lol.

  25. Relyt Says:

    A common “tactic” from Tom seems to be to use someone else’s handle and make a post attacking the person in a very childish manner. If he were truly fighting against something that he believed was bad, he wouldn’t be doing it like a third grader.

  26. everanonymous Says:

    who’s tom newton and why should we care?

    maybe if you say it out loud you’ll see why it’s silly to try to argue with him cause he’s a TROLL.

  27. scilon enemy number one Says:

    ^ word why do we care what an obvious troll says?

    …..because if he is trolling someplace without a anon presence to refute his lies he might sway or misinterpret something and cause them to think differently about the facts. he says i have proof about this and that and unless you ask for it and he doesn’t provide it like usual how are naive or on the fence people gonna know he is full of shit and only has his opinions to offer. its for nubes who don’t know he is a troll or isn’t truthful or honest and only can accuse and that his words fall on deaf ears. also what kind of douche does that for so long knowing his made up shit doesn’t reach anyone but anons… and his bullshit fuels the fire against the cult. I know who Tom is. I have known for a while I will tell you in an email if you want but whenever I post private info on any board its gone the minute a mod sees it. So what’s the point, I have medical and financial dox (provided the ex Clearwater PI lied about the pages he gave me and I scanned into 3 copies and gave to Sean) It might be someone else. By the way Tom is the moniker for a special black PR unit to help with all the problems the cult has been having online taking on anonymous. I have the names of those people. Thier is no real Tom Newton, unless he wasn’t mentioned in the report dossier

  28. XENU TV Says:

    If you have proof of a black pr unit named Tom Newton, I think people would want to see that. But just to post a person’s private phone number so others can harass the individual isn’t right. It’s not right when it’s done to me or to anyone else, no matter how annoying the person might be.
