Tony Ortega was questioned by one of his followers on my exposure of Tony’s sleazy, dishonest reporting the other day on My Scientology Movie. The inquirer purports to be a full-fledged bunkeroo, and law school graduate. She also regularly trolls my blog, slavishly pandering to Ortega. Here is the thread:
Tony, Marty claims that you misquoted him. Or maybe it’s that you didn’t quote him enough. You only printed 1/20th of his response.
Your post says you asked him about his recent posts.
His post said his response to you “cognitive dissonance and paranoia”) was in response to another question of yours.
Maybe I am a glutton for punishment, but is his entire response worth posting?
Sorry. Not going to be baited into publishing material I can’t make public.
I made public what I can at this point.
And no, he was not misquoted.
I never said Ortega “misquoted me”. I actually wrote the following in response to a commenter on my blog who suggested that I am responsible for Ortega’s sickness by not answering his questions: “Ortega never asked me about my review. He published 1/20 of a response to an entirely different question. Clearly, he owns you.” Ortega was in fact challenging me on my use of the term “ASC”, while hurling abusive accusations at me.
In either event, Tony goes on owning Chee Chalker and the rest of his sheep with claims of insider knowledge that justifies/validates his ongoing innuendo campaign: “Sorry. Not going to be baited into publishing material I can’t make public. I made public what I can at this point.”
That is how he kept his faithful drinking his Kool Aid during his four-month campaign against my family. He claims insider knowledge that he is afraid of the consequences of sharing. Another part of my answer referred to above that he only published 1/20th (as you’ll see, it might have been more like 1/100th) of out of context, confronted Ortega with that very sleaze tactic he is so fond of. To wit,
“If inventions of this kind are required for you to understand my posts and the use of the term ASC, your mind is far more infected with cognitive dissonance and paranoia than any scientologist I have ever encountered. You are also a coward and liar. You represented to your readers on several occasions in writing that you know what actually went on [with Monique’s lawsuit], but couldn’t disclose it at that time. That was stated in response to several people speculating as to milder motives on our part than you projected. You used definitive statements as to your insider, undisclosed knowledge to forward your hate against us. I knew you were lying then. You have now confirmed that fact in writing below.”
The “inventions of this kind” referred to had nothing to do with My Scientology Movie or anything Ortega claimed it was in response to.
Some of the published comments by Ortega during his anti-Rathbun campaign that I was referring to here were:
“I know more than I can say.”
“I know what happened. What you propose isn’t it.”
“I have some details that I can’t talk about yet. I will when I can.”
It has been nearly five months since he implied that he would put up or shut up – and as per usual, he instead lied and has done neither. He continues perpetuating the fraud with more of the same dissembling conduct.
There is no difference whatsoever in the tactics Tony Ortega regularly uses to warp his followers’ minds than what he accuses the object of his obsession with. Kettle, meet pot.
