Not that we needed it.
Across social media and Stand League blogs this denunciation has been repeated ad nauseum by an organization who calls itself a religion, considers itself superior and the most ethical.
Since January 4th, 2019 Scientology has accused Mike Rinder and Leah Remini of complicity to murder.
From its lofty perch above the wog masses, Scientology smugly adopted an I-told-you-so attitude, writing letters to various executives denouncing them for any involvement with Scientology and the Aftermath, Remini or Rinder.
Australian News, Bryan Seymour, Hoda Ktob, Jenna Bush Hager, Disney, A&E, Geico…the list goes on and on.
Personal attacks alleging guilt by association against people and companies for even the most remote tie to Leah Remini and Mike Rinder.
Karin Pouw, Scientology spokeswoman most notable for destroying her own cult’s belief system, was front and center in these attacks.
Pouw’s letter addressed to Paul Buccieri, President of A&E Networks was scathing in its self righteous condemnation.
Forgoing civility, she opens on the attack, “A young Scientologist in Australia has been murdered. Prior to committing this heinous act, the murderer spouted vicious religious hatred and propaganda, incited by A&E and the Leah Remini/Mike Rinder series.”
Except as it turns out he didn’t.
The Taiwanese national, 16 years old at the time, was motivated by false promises and a severe mental illness.
Not two former Scientologists in the United States he’d probably never even heard of.
As it turns out, Scientology is the spark that lit the tinder of this young man’s schizophrenia fueled confusion, fear and rage.
According to reports a Scientology staff member told the teen’s mother he was reading an inappropriate book which she then deleted from his library. How the staff member ended up with this information is unknown.
Enraged, the teen argued with and assaulted his mother in a Scientology course room. Apparently during this altercation another Scientology staffer promised the boy that he would help retrieve the book.
The following day the teen returned for the promised help only to be stymied.
Once again enraged, he demanded to speak with the Scientologist who had promised to help him and here court records dispute Pouw’s first claim.
Rather than shouting “vicious religious hatred and propaganda, incited by A&E and the Leah Remini/Mike Rinder series,” he is actually quoted as yelling in Mandarin, “I’ll give you two minutes to find him otherwise I’ll kill everyone else here.”
Far cry from Karin Pouw’s statement.
This isn’t religious hate, it’s fury over being lied to.
Pouw continues in her letter, writing “The attacker was inspired by an anti-Scientology website that featured your people and included a link to Remini’s show.”
To Buccieri, she snarls, “Your indifference and obsession with stirring hate underwrote his murder.”
A statement outrageous in its existence as it is based on emptiness and deceit while attempting to publicly shame a man.
This is Scientology. This is their TRUTH.
In the years following this tragic episode Scientology has constantly pointed at Leah Remini and Mike Rinder as co-conspirators to murder. COS has used this event as justification for the merciless vilification and dehumanization of two innocent people.
Justification for their Fair Game attacks. Make no mistake that Fair Game is real and practiced with fanatical devotion by this Cult of Greed and hate.
Literally hundreds, if not thousands of times, Scientology has posted on every social media platform that the two have “blood on their hands”.
“As Chih-Jen Yeh lay bleeding and unconscious on the driveway, the teenager again demanded to see the staff member who’d promised to help him restore the data. The standoff continued until police arrived and told the teenager to drop the knife. He was arrested and later charged with murder and wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.”
Not once is Remini, Rinder or the show mentioned as having anything whatsoever to do with the events of that January morning.
Scientology, with full knowledge of what happened that day, consciously chose to lie about this tragedy just to cause harm.
They chose to lie.
Remember this for every statement made by Scientology.
This is the ethical and charitable savior of the planet worthy of tax exemption.
