I really don’t profess to understand the very strange bedfellows that are scientology and the Nation of Islam.
I wonder if Farrakhan has noticed that apart from Crooked Alfreddie Johnson, scientology is pretty much exclusively composed of middle class white people? Which as far as I know is about as palatable to the NOI as people on food stamps are to scientologists?
A Special Correspondent sent this poster to me and I am not sure who it was distributed to or what the source of it is.
But I was curious about the possessive “saviours'” and wondered if it was a typical scientology spelling/grammar error that we see every Thursday.
But then I noticed the same odd word is on the banner behind what is clearly NOT a gathering of scientologists in the poster.
I Googled the term and found Saviours’ Day is a major NOI celebration.
And what popped up when I opened the “Saviours’ Day” page but a mention of a drill competition. The only other place I have seen anything resembling this (outside the military) is the Sea Org Day “Honor Guards.” The NOI don’t seem to go in for swords like the SO do, but they do like marching in formation and saluting.
Clearly from the poster they also like the staged shot showing everyone in attendance at their events. Though you must admit, the NOI seem to attract a LOT more butts in their seats than scientology. Scientology has NEVER had a staged shot like this one. 200 people tops for the grand shot with COB on the Freewinds Maiden Voyage Anniversary is about as big as it gets.
And clearly the NOI has stat push fever like scientology — big on setting quotas and demanding they be met.
The Google search also popped up a page hawking books from the Founder and speeches from the current leader. The only difference is that NOI charges a lot less than scientology.
I wonder if Farrakhan knows how many ethnic Jews there are in scientology? Hint — it’s a LOT. Especially in LA…
Hell, they even have “Graduations” and “Study Guides.”
And then I saw this:
They even use the same tag line: “The Future Is Ours.”
As I went through some of this stuff, I wondered if perhaps these organizations are more simpatico than I had imagined?
But at their core, each believes they are better than the other — that they are using them for their own ends and the other is none-the-wiser. The NOI thinks they can take Dianetics and leave the rest of the cray cray and that they will eventually take over the entire field and consume the subject that has been wasted by scientology. Scientology on the other hand thinks they have a foot in the door to the black community and will eventually convert them all to scientology — and meanwhile they are great for their stats.
Bound to explode like the proverbial volcano sooner or later. This is a marriage of sociopaths built on lies.
And on a microcosmic level — I wonder when Rev. Alfreddie Johnson’s future is going to be his — and his lies, rip-offs and scams are going to catch up to him. It is bound to happen sooner or later.
