The STAAD League have weighed in on the only thing they care about — what is happening on Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. Apparently it is the only thing they exist for, which is quite a compliment.
For the self-proclaimed champions of free speech and purveyors of epic humanitarianishism these guys have a pretty big blind spot.
When Louis Farrakhan and his IAS Freedom-medal winning defender Tony Mohammed roll out the anti-semitic rants, the STAAD League is conspicuously mum. Not a peep. Ever.
When we do a show that highlights victims of abuse, they go apoplectic. Not about those making the claims. But about Leah and me — who frankly hardly said a thing during the whole episode other than for me to say we should be focused on abuses, not beliefs.
They claim we “turn every guest into a victim who blames others” — yeah, right. Tell that to Mikaysha the rape victim Ed Parkin you snivelling robot. Or maybe the Follises who lost two brothers to suicide? Or Shannon who lost her brother and mother? Or, or, or… Somehow you bestow magical powers on us as if we can convert someone into a “victim” when nothing actually happened to them? Like you convert renovated empty buildings into “massive international expansion”?
And you Ed Parkin, not even an American, try to lecture Leah Remini about the Constitution, Bill of Rights and what it means to be an American? Ed, stick to singing God Save The Queen, it’s more suited to you.
And as for your idiotic rantings that we “especially blame parents, who are always made out to be the convenient villains” why don’t you apply a little of that in your campaign to use my daughter against me? Oops…
And finally Ed, your last sentence aptly describes your True Leader — the only thing you would have to add to make it perfect is “scared-shitless and afraid to confront the media, narcissistic, self-promoter”. That is certainly something Leah Remini is NOT afraid to do. And it’s not just Dave who can’t face the music. It is ANYONE. Hell, you have been a supposed public spokesperson for scientology now for 30 or so year, why don’t you agree to be interviewed? We even sent a film crew to one of your Grand Openings and you approached them but refused to be interviewed and then called the police? What sort of spokesman are you?
We ask every single episode for someone to speak — but you cannot. Because you know this sort of lying drivel would be shot down in a New York minute.
That you dare “victim-shame” these people when you are the one who clearly knows NOTHING about Jehovah’s Witnesses is very sick. But typical of you and scientology. You grasp at ANY opportunity to “attack the attacker” and every time you do, the world sees you for what you really are even more clearly.

At your service.
