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.
