Someone brought to my attention a website I had not seen before. It is entirely devoted to the virtues of the only True Leader, David Miscavige — davidmiscavige.org.
No doubt it is a response to the increasing volume of critical media about scientology and Miscavige. He wants to combat the bad news, but is afraid to speak to the media. So, he gets his minions to build a website for him with retouched, staged photos, glowing tributes and a series of brown-nosing videos that are pretty amazing. They are cringeworthy rehearsed statements from a variety of people — Sea Org, staff and “parishioners.” They all look alike, with perfectly framed, coiffed and rehearsed statements about the wonders of “Mr. Miscavige”/”Chairman of the Board.” Every person looks terrified that they might say something wrong or use an inappropriate form of address for True Leader. They are a frightening study in cult mentality.
You can look at them for yourself, but I recommend not eating before doing so (funny, all the Jive Aces scored a spot on the honored list probably because the SuMP crew was in the UK with Miscavige prior to the IAS event…)
But I wanted to highlight another section of his website.
This is a pretty amazing list of Miscavige’s supposed accomplishments. One would imagine from reading this that there wasn’t another person in scientology that does anything — he is the true source of all that is good and noteworthy.
This would be an interesting list to present in court the next time Miscavige’s lawyers try to argue he has nothing to do with the day to day operations of scientology.
Some of these are really pretty amazing. He apparently “developed programs to address society’s worst ills,” “inspired the world’s largest private relief force,” “secured official recognitions in the UK, Colombia and Mexico” (wonder if that counts his phony medal?), “presided over nine annual globally broadcast events” and most astonishingly “established two digital publishing houses” that can produce “1 million compact discs per week.” (You can play them on the “state of the art” Sony Walkman he developed).
He is now rivaling the great L. Ron Hubbard in his ability to pull off what no other man is capable of doing. He is a genuine superman, a true homo novis displaying his OT powers to convince people he is the “only one.”
He is also willing to boldly lie about his accomplishments to make himself sound good. I would love to see the programs HE developed, or what HE did to “secure recognitions”? And none of those 9 events are actually “broadcast” because he is so terrified that anyone outside the bubble will actually see them so they are distributed by courier to orgs around the world and shown days or weeks after the event occurred.
