    PR Re: Freedom Magazine - Collaboration Thread

    What This PR Needs

    • Point-by-point rebuttals for the allegations made in Freedom Magazine
    • Pointing out their lies with facts, INCLUDING dox
    • Make sure it's not TL;DR

    If Lilly doesn't make this, then I will; however, I need a TL;DR list of things to address from the magazine. Gregg has volunteered in this thread: http://forums.whyweprotest.net/312-...ne-strikes-back-sp-times-50352/22/#post957139 to fire up the Big List, so we don't need to use one of those shitty PR websites that nobody looks at.

    Point by point rebuttal of dozens of pages, but not tl;dr? I don't think that's possible. Also, isn't that their goal? To make people follow their lead, and tie people down with their BS?

    I'd keep it short:
    Repeat the allegations against Miscavige in the first articles.
    Note that instead of answering the charges, CoS is attacking people.
    Then point out more people have spoken out corroborating the original story.


    but I have no time to contribute, so I'll stfu now

    I would point out how they show the homes of the "defectors" but are too chicken shit to name names.

    The absurdity of the Freedom magazine is self-evident.

    Why address it?

    i would think prove its full of crap

    also maybe some other scilons would see that and maybe get them thinking

    Re: PR Re: Freedom Magazine - Collaboration Thread

    Their rebuttal amounted to literally printing "Liar Liar Pants on Fire".

    With a little graphic of flames licking a needle gauge.

    Does this really merit any discourse?

    Taking the issue of Freedom seriously enough to print a srs business press release will make you look exasperated, easily fomented, just as silly as the rag you're criticizing.

    Which of course, most of you are.

    So carry on, I suppose.

    Re: PR Re: Freedom Magazine - Collaboration Thread

    The main points here should be to

    - Spread the news that 11 more defectors have spoken out about the abuses at int. base, perpetrated by the leader of Scientology, David Miscavige, close friend of Tom Cruise.
    - That those add to the first 4 who spoke out earlier.
    - Spread the news that Scientology put out a new edition of Freedom Magazine that is incredibly unhinged. Perhaps why it's unhinged
    -- Dissembles about how David Miscavige refused to be interviewed.
    -- Uses odd nicknames rather than names for the four defectors, and doesn't picture them but pictures their houses.
    -- Pictures Hollywood actor Jason Beghe, but doesn't dare mention his name
    -- Uses childish and unhinged language.
    -- Uses confidential confessional information and "admissions" from group confessionals.
    -- Trots out the spouses that were forced to divorce them and makes them tell on them.

    There's no need for a rebuttal - only pointing out that it is absolutely nuts.

    Re: PR Re: Freedom Magazine - Collaboration Thread

    I agree with the above, fuck the rebuttals.

    I'm going to wait for Lilly to post before I make one.

    Psuedo Press Release for Spreading - SP Times take 2

    This was my hasty attempt at something to send out to whoever you can think of. I'm sure it could use work and maybe formatting, but maybe you can template it or something. You figure it out. Mods move where ever.

    Re: PR Re: Freedom Magazine - Collaboration Thread

    I too think that magazine to be so over the top ludicrous that rebutting it only gives it credibility it doesn't deserve.
  15. happy feet Member

    Re: PR Re: Freedom Magazine - Collaboration Thread

    Needs to point out the comicbook names of KINGPIN, CONMAN, FACT CHECKER, and THE ADULTERER used by the PR division of this so-called organized religion.

    Also the sharing of dirt from ex-wives.
    Financial details and medical histories.
    Still no direct denial from DM.

    The fact that it is widely known and accepted this level of violence within the highest ranks of scientology management for years. (Regardless of who actually did the beatings, both side admit this was common and never reported to police)

    - A summary of all the innuendo thrown at the Adulterer.

    -An update with SP Times latest list of all the corroborating names.

    You have to remember that "No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people." They have to be spoon fed this shit so they can understand why the Co$ should be brought down.

    ^^ Winrar, except for the title.

    How about

    Amid hysterical Scientology backlash, defectors speak out about beatings
  21. Anonynamefag Member

    Re: PR Re: Freedom Magazine - Collaboration Thread

    Other things to include:

    The fact that Rathburn, Rinder, etc. were encouraged (key word) to violently assault the staff by David Miscavige for years, and it wasn't until after they spoke out about it did they suddenly have a problem with it.

    David Miscavige refused to be interviewed for months prior to the release of the SP Times.

    They are releasing records from the auditing files, which the Church repeatedly claims are confidential and similar to confessionals in Catholicism.

    also, needs sauces

    Sauce and a few tweaks:

    Getting better. But can we provide a sauce to the physical assaults being encouraged?
  25. demosthenes Member

    Re: PR Re: Freedom Magazine - Collaboration Thread

    You're the one who brought that up. Where did you read it?
  26. Anonynamefag Member

    Re: PR Re: Freedom Magazine - Collaboration Thread

    I'm pretty sure I read that in the previous SP Times article (the three-parter), but if not, that can easily be omitted.

    Besides, the fact that it was even allowed to go on for so long is enough to make an impact.

    Re: PR Re: Freedom Magazine - Collaboration Thread

    Freedumb pg.2: "The interview would have been his first in eleven years and only the third in his 25-year career as the church's leader".

    2009 - 25 = 1984

    Hubbard died Jan.24,1986

    Do the scilons believe the dwarf was their leadah two years before Hubbards death?

    If you'd like someone to proofread/edit for grammatical/spelling/punctuation before sending this out, I would be happy to help. The mods can let me know.

    Re: PR Re: Freedom Magazine - Collaboration Thread

    In an ABC interview on Nightline with Ted Kopel, Ted himself said Miscavige has been leader since 1987 right at the beginning of the interview and somewhere else in the interview, I believe he specifically says he is not the leader of Scientology.

    I have the video here to support the former, but I cannot find the video to support the latter.

  34. Anonymous Member

    Re: PR Re: Freedom Magazine - Collaboration Thread

    I disagree. Technically speaking, the character assassination was only a portion of the magazine. The rest was sucking Miscavige's cock.
