I am seeing a lot of comments about Debbie’s practice of taking on and removing friends from Facebook; and a lot tea leaf reading along with it.
Per my friends at Facebook Debbie’s account has been hacked into by Office of Special Affairs (OSA, Corporate Scientology’s dirty tricks department). The intent of the operation is clear. They are filling Debbie’s Facebook friends list with dozens of Independents and others who proudly wear their excommunication declares. OSA is already briefing on-line, non-declared corporate Scientologists that Debbie is “friends” with all of these “notorious” characters. And that is ALL they need to tell Kool Aid drinkers to get them back in the pen seeing and hearing no evil. Please do not help OSA do its work.
Please do Debbie Cook a favor and let her get on with the mission she spelled out in her original e-mail. That is, let Debbie handle the massive e-mail and phone traffic she is receiving from corporate Scientologists. There is plenty of that to handle. There are corporate Scientology threats to handle. There are infiltration attempts to handle. And there are dozens of kool aid drinkers trying to cave her in. Don’t supply ammunition to these deployed agents.
If you want to show support say it loud, here and in other on-line forums (everybody who cares about Scientology reads them). Most importantly, get Debbie’s original e-mail spread as far and wide as possible on the lines of corporate Scientologists.
If you doubt the wisdom of this advice, please carefully read Debbie’s original email and divine the intent. Debbie doesn’t need to be turned into an Independent. Whether she ever does or instead continues on a quixotic quest to change the corporate beast’s stripes makes little difference. There is no more effective action (other than independent delivery) happening for the future of Scientology than what she is doing at the moment. More corporate Scientologists are being reached and gotten to look and think than by any other single action. If Debbie becomes an independent it will not be because someone convinces her to; it will be because David Miscavige drives her there.
Like I said in the first post on 1 January, we’d be well served to prepare to deliver to the fall out. Because no matter what, there will be plenty of that. Please back it up.
