xenutruth9 on Youtube has recently posted this video on human abuse in the cult. It is profoundly disturbing and moves you to want to do what you can to free people from these horrendous abuses.

I highly recommend you watch the video on Youtube and read the comments from anonymous. xenutruth9 asks at the end of the video,

I implore you, do it for those of us who cannot. Help us get back on our feet. Help bring down the cult of Scientology. Help take part in making history. Please help to make this world a better place.

AnonMonAnon responds:

let anonymous carry your burdens for a while,xenutruth9.
take the time you need to heal. get help. know that our hearts are with you.
welcome to your freedom, ex-$cientologist.

This video is so important to understand Project Chanology and why we fight that I am embedding it here.


Finally, Wikipedia has added an article on Anonymous. The article was delayed because anonymous disagreed on what to write. I am glad it has appeared. It is fair and a good start. It needs moar lulz. Props to you WP!

It was reported this week that Shawn Lonsdale, a critic of C0S, died a suicide. May he rest in peace, and may the souls of all the departed victims of the cult rest in peace.

In a thread on Enturb containing a video clip, heroine Tory Christman speaks to the passing of Shawn and so many who have died in the cult. This one of the most moving videos I have seen. If you want to understand why Anonymous is so committed in this struggle, please watch this. Rather than embed the video here, I refer you to the Enturb thread. The comments from anons are as moving as Tory's video. Quoting from our major meme song, Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up, anon N. Ron Rubber writes to Tory, "Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down." He speaks for all anons Read the whole thread which is here. You may need tissues.

The Anonymous Revolution was thinking yesterday that Anonymous needs to hoist the Cult of $ on its own celebrity petard. Although David Miscavige is the leader of the cult, he is so frightened of angering or losing Tiny Tom, the Messiah of Scientology, that Tom Cruise is effectively Head of the Church and responsible for all of its activities. Tom Cruise's Cult seemed a good term for the cult.

We were therefore delighted to see the term Tom Cruise's Cult appearing in Enturbthreads today. This a most significant change in terminology. I want to have a large banner made for the March 15 protests that reads:


Such banners and posters are going to be much in evidence at the March 15 Party Hard protests in honor of the birthday of L. Ron Hubbard, lunatic founder of the cult. The media will photograph them and film them and put them in newspapers and on TV.

Tom Cruise, Beware the Ides of March!

Update: Excellent Enturbanons have commented and advised that this is not a good idea. It would be perceived as unfair attacks on a tabloid star, and we need to limit our protests to Co$. I agree. Maybe something more positive, kinder, and gentler, like, "TOM, DO YOU REALLY WANT TO SPEND THE REST OF YOUR LIFE WITH DAVE MISCAVIGE?"

waianon also voiced this wish:

On the other hand, while I severely doubt that this would happen, wouldn't it be awesome if as a result of the protests he began seeing the "Church" for what it really is? Even those of us who hate his guts would have to smile at $cientology's poster boy being declared an SP, especially since I doubt they'd dare to do jack to him. :P

That would be delicious cake indeed.

We are Anonymous, Tom.

An hour ago Anonymous issued an official message to the general public and those identified or affiliated with Anonymous, launching Operation Reconnect for April. It will shine a spotlight on families torn apart by the Church of Scientology. "The aim is to bring these families together," commented an organizer who identified himself as David Monde.

Anonymous also plans to bring those who bear the scars of the cult to public attention:

Since Anonymous set out on a campaign against the Church of Scientology, a number of individuals have stepped forth with accounts of their personal experiences within the Church. Many of these people described the negative influence exerted by the Church of Scientology on their families. On a date which remains to be announced, some of these individuals will be relating their experiences to the public as speakers at peaceful demonstrations.

For the text of the announcement and lively debate among anons see this Enturb thread.

The message is signed -

We are Anonymous.
We have Awoken.
We Stand as One.

Comment: Anonymous is displaying exemplary strategic strength and tactical astuteness. Operation Reconnect is a major opportunity to rend the hearts of the public, and allow their outrage to drive public demands for governmental action.

Wise Beard Man at XenuTV posted this video made of epic win by Pelvidar. This is the best video I have seen on the evolution of the Anonymous Revolution - a stirring and moving account from the Tom Cruise video incident through the declaration of war and the demostrations of February 10, 2008. I am looking forward to seeing moar of his work as the Plan unfolds to Total Epic Win. Newfags, if you don't watch anything else on The Anonymous Revolution, watch this:

ArchCritic Arnie Lerma of Exposing the Con has published a list of Co$ lawyers, both confirmed Co$ and needing confirmation. If anons were of a vindicative mind like the scilons, we would adopt their own dead-agenting tactics against these minions of Tom Cruise's Cult (TCC) .

But we're not.

I won't publish the list here, but thought I would point out this member of the legal staff of the Scientology Hate Machine in our nation's capitol. Oh, rite. There were those infiltrations of the IRS offices n stuff.

Disregard that. Go read it and find out for yourself.

Oh, and if you know any of these people, say hai! from all of us anons. Tell them they will have a lot more lulz and save a whole lot of money if they come out into the freedom of Anonymous and the rest of humanity.

Calling all lawyers: Anonymous needs a Pro-Bono Anonymous Army of Paralegals, Attorneys, Litigators, and First Amendament and Tax Law Experts. Join us in the struggle for Great Justice!


Enturbanon Goddess Magoo introduced us to 85-year old Heroine Ida Carman on this Enturb thread:

I just spoke to Ida Camburn, who is 85 years old and has been fighting
the CULT of Scientology since they snagged up her son, 30+ years ago.

He "Disconnected" from her, and she hasn't heard from him since. Ida began fighting the cult of $cientology 30 years ago, joining the original CAN (Cult Awareness Network: Now bought up by Scientology--The Old C.A.N used to help families of people in Cults like Scientology!) She's written to Senators and Congressmen for years.

Ida has picketed with us--you can see her on
She's in the red hat :D

On February 10th she picketed around her neighborhood, out in Hemet, CA
which is the headquarters for Scientology.
If you drove up to Ida's ---you'd see her car with a bumper sticker:

And some Xenu Dolls in her window. She's a fantastic person, and I'm proud to say she's also a dear friend.

GOOD JOB, IDA!!! :mrgreen: :ohyeah: :xenu: :anon: :mrgreen:

My best,

PS: If she can figure out how to upload her photos, she will.

And she is hawt.


Anonymous has just posted an epically important new message addressed "To Those Who Will Fight Against The Church Of Scientology", announcing Phase Two of Project Chanology's plan:

The next step in removing Scientology will be to force the hand of the government into taking action against the church. They have let this cult carry on far too long and now they must realize how dangerous it has become.

Anonymous asks us all to write our government and local police officials seeking investigation into

criminal policies and controversial actions which include:
the Fair Game policies,
the Attack the Attacker policy,
the use of "dead agenting",
the take-over of the Cult Awareness Network,
the Rehabilitation Project Force,
encouraging members to practice Disconnection,
the suppression of the ex-scientologist group Free Zone,
the validity of using E-meters,
a variety of proven conspiracies including plans to attack Paulette Cooper,
and the disturbing stories of Lisa McPherson and Noah Lottick.

Welcome to the Anonymous Internet Insurgency. Co$ has taken down both the Insurgent Wiki and Project Chanology this week. We have been without Partyvan Radio for days. Anonymous, that magnificent bastard, continues to lead and inspire the troops through YouTube. The Anonymous Army of Davids is unstoppable.

We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.

Expect Us.

Church of Scientology, Beware the Ides of March.


This is a real war. It will end either with the Church of Scientology remaining as it presently exists, or it will be damaged beyond repair by Anonymous and limp along with its hard-core true believers and aging celebrities as a shadow of its former self.

CoS is utterly vicious and criminal in its savaging of opponents and critics. It has a special name for them: Suppressive Persons (SP). Scientologists are commanded to destroy SP's by any means, no matter how immoral, illegal, or criminal under its Fair Game Law:
SP Order. Fair game. May be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed.
Already the Project Chanology website is coming under frequent attack, and links to it here may not work. Hang in there. It will be up again. Go to the ED Project Chanology Page in the mean time. The Anonymous Revolution will be attacked. We will be back.

Be exceedingly proud of young people in their twenties all over the who form the heart and soul of Anonymous. They are our friends, our brothers and sisters, our children, and our grand-children. They are literally risking being destroyed to liberate those enslaved by Scientology.

Join them. Join us. We are Anonymous. We are Legion.

The first question I ask is: Have you heard about the Anonymous war on the Church of Scientology?

The second question I ask is: Do you know what a lolcat is?

Most people don't know.

This is a lolcat:


Heroine of the Revolution Paulette Cooper

This week Paulette Cooper, a journalist and critic of the cult, posted for the first time on Enturb. Anons welcomed her enthusiastically. She was born in the Auschwitz concentration camp. She was nearly destroyed for her writings, particularly her book The Scandal of Scientology which you can read online here. She became the first victim on the cults savage attacks on its critics and ex-members in the infamous Operation Freak Out aimed directly at her seeking to silence her by incarcerating her in a mental institution or getting her sent to prison.

Wikipedia gives details on the fair gaming crimes inflicted on her:
Through the years as she continued to expose the Church, Paulette Cooper was the target not only of litigation but of several harassment campaigns including a Scientology campaign known as Operation Freakout, the goal of which was to deter Cooper from criticism of Scientology by having her "incarcerated in a mental institution or jail or at least to hit her so hard that she drops her attacks."[4] In a previous campaign titled Operation Dynamite[5] the church sent itself forged bomb threats, purportedly from Cooper, using her typewriter and paper with her fingerprints on it; further plans included bomb threats to be sent to Henry Kissinger. The Church's campaign was discovered when the FBI raided Scientology offices in 1977 and recovered documents relating to the operation.[6] The Church finally agreed to an out-of-court settlement with Cooper in 1985 in exchange for her discontinuing her legal actions against Scientology.[7]
And she is hawt.


Scientology is an utter human tragedy. Kids have been brainwashed. Children and parents been separated through the cult's hateful policy and practice of disconnection. Children have committed suicide because of the cult.

Scientology destroys children.
For every child lost, our hearts grow more resolute.
We are Anonymous.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.

Join us.

("For every child lost, our hearts grow more resolute" is taken from editordrone's magnificent Why the Masks? posted below.)


It is difficult to overestimate the importance of Tory Christman to the Anonymous Revolution and the esteem and affection with which she is held by anons the world over.

Tory was a member of CoS for 30 years and worked in the Office of Special Affairs (OSA). She left and became one of the leading Critics of Co$. She is utterly delightful. When she first heard of the great declaration of war video she thought it was a false flag trick by OSA to distract attention from the infamous Tom Cruise video and Andrew Morton's new biography of Tom Cruise. Then the phone rang, and a voice said, "This is Anonymous." The beginning of a love affair.

She is widely known as Magoo, her chatroom handle. This video shows why we fight.

Tory now has a webcam and will posting on Youtube. All her videos are here.
Her main page with many videos of her speaking about her experience with the cult
is here.

And she is hawt.

blue-hair minions watchin pr0n in ur basement

The excellent Nekromantik reported on his experience of speaking with the representative of his Congressman It went exceedingly well:

When I mentioned to her that the Co$ had infiltrated the IRS and received their tax-exempt status just as the perpetrators of the crimes were being sent to jail, she stated that this was something that *absolutely required* investigation. MAJOR FUCKING WIN!
Blue-hair MollyBloom responded:


Yes, please give links for all the tax info and the cases that have been in court and I will get my blue-hair minions on this immediately, they need to get out of the basement anyway because they have been finding where the kids hang on on the chans and are lurking there; I think they are enjoying the pr0n too much. ;)
That's Anonymous. Bluehairfags and 13-year old boys watching pr0n in the basement. lol!

There is such a great ferment of thinking, debate, strategizing, and lulz going on at the it is getting difficult to keep up with posts. So many of the posts are insightful, intriguing, amusing, and moving. From time to time I will post Enturbs of the Nao, gleanings from Enturb's threads.

Tax-exemption: Enturbanon Kansan to stop $ci pointed to excellent articles in the ABA Journal and the NYTimes on the current case claiming the government is violating the Establishment Clause of the Constitution by granting CoS tax deductions for the outrageous fees for "religious" education it charges, and this despite a 1987 Supreme Court forbidding them to do so.

Femanonymous provided this great quote from the pdf of the 2002 9th Circuit Court of Appeals from the ABA Journal article:
If the IRS does, in fact, give preferential treatment to members
of the Church of Scientology -- allowing them a special
right to claim deductions that are contrary to law and rightly
disallowed to everybody else -- then the proper course of
action is a lawsuit to stop to that policy. 1 The remedy is not
to require the IRS to let others claim the improper deduction,
Tsu No Dihm makes this excellent comment:

The Holy Bible, Free from Gideons.
The Book of Mormon, Free from the Church of Latter Day Saints.
The Teachings of Scientology, more than $350,000

Revoking the Tax Exempt Status of the Corporation of Scientology...


Something I thought up today, perhaps it would make a good sign or Flier.

Calling all lawyers: An Anonymous Army of Lawyers is needed to take on this epically litigious Goliath. Join us!

Chanology: The great debate on chan culture and how much it should be evident in our raidz demonstrations and propaganda our banners, placards, and handout continues to rage. There are so many posts pro and con, I am going to give my position here and let you browse Enturb for varying perspectives.

I find chan culture so lulzy that I want to introduce it to people. I am always thinking of ways to help people get over their shock and disgust at some of it, appreciate chanology, have great lulz and join us. If they are unwilling to enjoy mega-lulz, then I try to get them to support the cause of great justice anyway. The critics and liberated captives of Scientology are thrilled with us just as we are. We don't need everyone to join us. Today we are 7000+ . The cult is only 80,000. If we can recruit that many anons, they are dead. Surely we can get that many despite what some may be turned off by. Chanology is not all niggertits. We can leave the word out of the raids. We have a ton of memes the public will love. So let the rickrolls roll. Let everyone join us and party hard at the March 15 raidz and enjoy the delicious caek of our finest memes.

Crimes of the Cult:

Biggins posted this gem:

January 21, 2008

Three French members of the Church of Scientology, suspected of holding a fourth person against their will, were arrested Monday in Nuoro, Sardinia, a local police spokesman told AFP. “The three people belong to the Church of Scientology, whereas the person being held was probably not a member,” Fabrizio Mustaro, of the Nuoro Prefecture on the Mediterranean island, told AFP.

Police were alerted by a phone call that reported cries for help coming from a house on Mount Ortobene, near Nuoro, said Mustaro. Officers found a 47-year-old woman of Tunisian origin sleeping semi-naked on a mattress infested with vermin. She was subsequently hospitalised. Three other people at the house, a 42-year-old woman and two 18-year-old men, one of Tunisian origin, were arrested and charged with kidnapping.
"You Can't Stop The Signal"

Nice work, scilons.

Moar later.

This is our message to the practitioners of Scientology. It is for the liberation of these captives that we fight.

Practitioners of Scientology,

Come out of the darkness and into the light of the glorious freedom of Anonymous and the rest of humanity.

Enlightenment in every authentic religion is free. Authentic religions are eager to disseminate their beliefs for free. They want everyone to experience enlightenment. The authentic enlightenment and freedom that comes from God, experienced in many ways and under many names.

You do not need to sacrifice your bank accounts, your families, your friends, the dreams of your hearts, the sacredness and inviolability of your inmost conscience.

Do you fear not being able to acquire the techniques you desire to answer the fundamental questions of existence and master the darknesses of the human mind and heart?

They are available in rich abundance in the light.

Do you fear losing family and friends if you come into freedom and the light?

What true mother, father, husband, wife, son, daughter, friend would totally disconnect from you as you pursue your authentic freedom and happiness?

Do you fear losing your livelihood?

The riches of a slave are as nothing compared to the freedom of a poor man.

Do you fear being alone if you risk the escape to freedom?

You have seven thousand new friends who care about you profoundly. Warriors who risk being savaged for your liberation. Friends who will do anything for you. Every day thousands more join The Anonymous Revolution. For your sake.

We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.

Join us.


The time has come in the life of this blog to cut chanspeak free to rawr. Chanspeak is the national language of the tribal confederation that is Anonymous. It is a language of endless lulz, richness of memes, and a wonderous mashup of dialects from many sources including texting, chat, gaming, and Japanese pidgin English. It is the language of scathing satire, parody, invective, and black humor. It abounds in artful misspellings. It is utterly raunchy and epically hilarious. It is the language of absolute freedom of speech. Nigras are revered for their heroism in The Great Habbo Raid of July 2006. Youtube videos are cheerfully called jewtubes. Chan has transformed the vilest epithets in our culture into lulzy terms of affection. Every one, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, is a fag: newfags, oldfags, bluehairfags, $cifags, and fagfags. It gleefully slaughters every politcally correct cow in sight. It kills it, eats it, shits it out, flings it into the fan, and shouts out, "Epic fukken win!!!!!11111ELEVEN!!!!

It is one of the great languages of the world.




Here are some of the True Heroes of the Revolution:

Lisa McPherson and the Martyrs of Scientology
The Victims of Scientology
The Freed Slaves of Scientology
The Critics
The Faceless Face of the Future

Tuesday, February 12, 2008


On this blog, as in real life, I exercise my absolute right to absolute freedom of speech.

Monday, February 4, 2008


Welcome to The Anonymous Revolution.

On January 21, 2008,
in an electrifying video on Youtube, Anonymous declared war on the Church of Scientology . The casus belli was its abuse of free speech in forcing Youtube to take down a video of Tom Cruise raving about Scientology.

After declaring war, Anonymous, a confederation of groups from various internet image boards, quickly set up Project Chanology, "a large scale plan to bring down the Church of Scientology in its present form." Its website (sometimes down perhaps due to Church of Scientology attacks) acts as Command Central. It publishes messages to the general public, the enemy, and the troops. It provides education and training to thousands of anonymous. It boosts their morale through Raidchan Radio. An anti-Scientology website,, serves as the main forum where Anonymous debates and plans strategy.

Anonymous allied itself with long-time anti-Scientology activists known as the Critics. On Youtube Anonymous called for world-wide demonstrations on February 10th, the birthday of Lisa McPherson, a young woman who wanted to leave the cult and who died through horrendous medical neglect at its hands.

On February 10th, more than 7,000 anonymous poured off the internet into the streets for the first time ever. Anonymous scored major successes demonstrating against CoS "churches" all over the world. The next demonstration, Party Hard, takes place on Saturday, March 15, a few days after the birthday of the cult's false prophet, L. Ron Hubbard. Over 9,000 new anonymous are expected to swell the ranks by then.

Most of the general public find talk of a "war" on a religion to be somewhat shocking. Most people believe Scientology is an odd religion practiced by some Hollywood celebrities, but basically harmless.

What is coming more into public awareness through the struggle being waged are even more shocking things about this "church" which carried out the largest infiltration of the United States government through Operation Snow White which involved up to 5,000 covert agents.

Is there another church that carries out actions designed to drive its critics to insanity or frame them for crimes and put them in prison as the Church of Scientology did against author and Auschwitz survivor Paulette Cooper in Operation Freakout?

Should we as Americans continue their tax-exemption in light of these and other human rights abuses that continue?

This blog is an invitation to everyone to join the Anonymous Revolution. It is written particularly for those who wish to join us who do not know what a lolcat is, as well as those who come from older generations - the parents, grandparents, and older and younger siblings of the magnificent cohort of men and women in their twenties who are the heart and soul of Anonymous.

Chanology is the culture of Anonymous and the underworld (at least to the general public) of the chans. The chans are image boards that originated in Japan. Mother of the English chans is 4chan.
Currently, it has thirty-five different image boards, covering topics ranging from anime, weapons, and photography to real and animated pornography. /b/, the random board, is the homeland of Anonymous. Posting anonymously is a requirement, and the origin of the group's name. Chan culture is marked by its own unique, often ribald, language; scathing invective; and a penchant for black humor, pornographic, gruesome and offensive images, raiding, and above all lulz. (Blue-hair minions see here. Others see here).

I am a naturalized anonymous. I do not know the chan world from inside, but I love this world, I hope many others will come to enjoy its lulz. I hope many
others will join the struggle for great justice.

I believe that Anonymous
is the most intriguing cultural phenomenon on the scene today. I believe it is creating a social revolution.

The first revolution was the actual internet revolt that occurred in January 2008.

The second revolution is the transformation of Anonymous from a tribe of lulz-crazed internet pranksters and raiders to a lulz-crazed, focused-like-a-laser, Anonymous Army of Davids declaring war on the Goliath of the wealthy, celebrity-assetted, litigious, vicious, organized crime con operation known as the Church of Scientology.

The third is Anonymous transforming itself from rabble in the underworld of the internet into a powerful moral force in the streets in real life, utterly intent on the liberation of the Captives of Scientology, the vindication of its Victims and Martyrs, and the destruction of the oppressive, and evil power structure of the Church of Scientology as it presently stands under the leadership of its head, David Miscavige.

Social revolution? You be the judge.

Anonymous does not want to take down the belief system of Scientology. We merely want to heap upon it the scorn and ridicule it so richly deserves . (Video here and here.) People are free to believe whatever odd or unusual thing they want. We have no argument with those who wish to engage in Scientology as a self-help psychology and self-improvement practice. We do want to take down the hateful and oppressive power structure Church of Scientology in its present form. We want to liberate its slaves.

To our brothers and sisters held captive by the Church of Scientology we say: Come out of the darkness and into the light of the glorious freedom of Anonymous and the rest of humanity.

Join us. Anonymous will prevail.

(The Anonymous Revolution awards five gold-plated internets to Encylopedia Dramatica for introducing us to Anonymous, and five gold-plated internets to editordrone of that seething cauldron of the revolution,, for inspiring me to write this blawg.)


This powerful and poetic
message was published by editordrone in the General Discussion Forum of on Monday, February 11, 2008. Its point of reference are the Guy Fawkes or Epic Fail Guy masks worn by Anonymous in their demonstrations. The Church stalks and harrasses those who investigate or criticize it under the utterly immoral Fair Game Law of the Church.

Why the masks?

Every mask you see is the face of a victim in whose place we stand to speak. It is the empty place where a life should be that is no more. It is the absence of a friend, a neighbor, a loved one. It is the missing critic, who cannot speak or show his face out of fear.

We are the faceless. We give voice to the voiceless. We step forward to speak for those who cannot.

For every voice silenced through criminal intimidation and the tactics of personal destruction, we step forward.

For every troubled soul who seeks solace but is left with only a treasury of lies, ruin, and loss, we step forward. For every mother silenced for fear that her words will endanger her child still within the cult, we step forward.

For every business owner intimidated into silence, we step forward. For every victim locked within an armed compound or re-education labor camp, beyond the reach of law and justice, we step forward.

For every death, we step forward.

For every injustice committed, our numbers are multiplied. For every critic silenced, every reputation falsely tarnished, the truths we speak are made more brilliant. For every child lost, our hearts grow more resolute. We step forward for others who cannot.

Every mask you see is the face of a victim in whose place we stand to speak. It is the empty place where a life should be that is no more. It is the absence of a friend, a neighbor, a loved one. It is the missing critic, who cannot speak or show his face out of fear.

We are the faceless. We give voice to the voiceless. We speak because they cannot.
