Scientology has come up with a new tactic to add to their smear videos, “Open Letter”, legal threat letters and Google Ads. They are really scraping the barrel now.
It seems that over the weekend they ordered people to buy Ryan Prescott’s “takedown” of A Billion Years and then write glowing reviews about it! I’ve not seen this done before. But they have gotten enough people to fork over $3.50 that this is now listed as a “Best Seller” with 147 glowing ratings…
You know these are false, because if you have ever read any of the previous drivel churned out by Ryan Prescott, you would know that any REAL reader would not give his work 4 or 5 stars.
I’ve done a few blog posts about Ryan in the past, here are two of them:
Scientology has figured out how to game the system once again, not that it really matters. Propping up Ryan Prescott is a complete waste of time, and the only people who have bought this book are obviously those who have been ordered to do so. It’s probably why the price went down. I’m surprised they still charged $3.50… Probably to cover the cost of Amazon shipping it.
Speaking of gaming the system, they have also sent their bots to leave 1 star reviews at Goodreads. It’s easy to spot them — they appear in clusters on the same day and the “reviews” are clearly not from someone who has actually ready the book, but are simply regurgitating OSA talking points.
A couple of other amusing things showed up on my Twitter feed.
Two new “Tweeters” from OSA trying a new tactic. Insulting how I look on TV.
Apparently someone in OSA thought this would be amusing, so they created a couple of their fake accounts and fired off some “mean tweets”… Look at these two accounts and how many followers they have…
What is REALLY funny is that OSA is afraid of going on TV at all!
In fact, I was on Court TV last night with Vinnie Politano discussing the Masterson case. He stated several times that they had reached out to scientology and asked for someone to come on the show and they refused, but instead sent a statement saying that no scientologist is discouraged from going to law enforcement!!! And that they don’t think it’s “appropriate” to bring religion into the case…
Now that is even funnier.
Winter is coming.
