Paul Haggis and Backpage Tony Ortega

Tony Ortega can’t seem to lie straight in bed.  A recent headline on his blog purports to introduce an ‘Open letter to Marty Rathbun’, which is followed instead by a letter written to him by Paul Haggis, shrilly nattering about Marty Rathbun. Par for the course in the ASC, if you project it and assert it by God it happened. As much as he has desperately tried, Backpage Tony can never be me. Judging by the content of the Haggis letter, and by his recent dramatic appearance on the Ortega/Remini/Rinder production Aftermath, clearly Haggis has fully imbibed the victimhood Kool Aid.

Haggis begins his whiney little rant with “Mike Rinder already dissected … Marty’s flip-flopping assertions.” To the contrary, Rinder has done nothing but meaningless juxtaposition of characterizations asserted over a broad period of time acting as if time, and facts occurring within it, do not exist. He hasn’t addressed a single fact, of the dozens I have shared, about the hypocrisy, dishonesty, and mendacity of Paul, himself, Leah Remini and Backpage Tony.

Then, Haggis riffs along acting as if the facts have already been addressed and inventing yet new fictions to shore up his invented ASC narrative concerning himself. After all, in Vanityland if you project it and assert it with enough indignant drama by God it happened.

By the letter, one would think Haggis has been raped and left for dead because one partial sentence of an email he authored made it onto a website that did not genuflect to his phony victimhood narrative. That, while the sanctimonious hypocrite ‘outs’ his former friends on cable tv with their alleged personal communications and then, with Remini, trashes them, calling them ‘liar’, ‘bigot’, and ‘racist’ (themselves again projecting, incidentally – perhaps a later chapter). Again, there are absolutely no facts included – just straight, ad hominem condemnations of people because their choices of association do not include Remini and Haggis.

Paul pretends to Backpage that he kept my name secret from the church at my behest and for my benefit. That is ridiculous on its face. I had already led the “Truth Rundown” contingent, was featured on the cover of Freedom magazine and interviewed with ABC Nightline and CNN, started a blog (that Backpage Tony begged me to share the secrets of its popularity). But, this Haggis invention is a key plot element to the fiction of the Paul Haggis open letter to Backpage Tony. Remember, the made-up Aftermath story is called “The Betrayal of Paul Haggis.”  So, the award-winning screenwriter just skillfully backfills to shore up the party line. If you project it and assert it…

Haggis spins a new myth, in what perhaps is a preview for Aftermath’s next ‘celebrity’ bash.  He claims Jason Beghe came to Texas to rescue me from ‘depression’ and start a blog.  In fact, I spent nearly a year talking an extremely agitated Beghe off the ledge – a fragile mental state exacerbated by the constant needling of the likes of Backpage Tony. In fact, Beghe never even suggested I start a blog, and was as startled as everyone else when I did so. Haggis invents that Jason was the one who gave me Paul’s email address suggesting he might be someone willing to hear me out. In fact, Jason Beghe was shocked to learn only after the facts the following: a) that I had obtained Haggis’ email address on my own, b) that I contacted Haggis, c) that I shamed him into resigning, and d) I obtained his agreement to connect up with Beghe. In either event, none of this is anything I am proud of (another Haggis invention). Had I known Haggis would degenerate into a professional ‘victim’ I absolutely never would have contacted him in the first place.

Alas, Haggis’ whiny little bitch dishing tends to deposit more and more falsehood the more he riffs. Thus, I digress. Let’s get back to the ‘point’ of his ‘open letter.’ The self-anointed king of transparency is squealing like a stuck pig over a sentence of an email authored by him seeing the light of day. Why does the self-produced, -directed, -rehearsed, and -broadcast crusader for openness and truth protest the slightest sliver of openness and the truth so vehemently?

In addition to including no less than eight separate lies and misrepresentations that Haggis suggests that I make to the media, 2 above is the written proof of the truth of 1 above. That Haggis and the Troika, in the face of 1, continued to defraud and deceive the public speaks volumes to their character and motivation. If you can’t see that, chances are your cognitive faculties have been severely affected by excessive ASC participation. If that is the case, probably your only realistic hope for future happiness starts with about 3-400 hours of Scientology objective processes.

If all of this inflames you with outrage and indignation, I feel for you. I leave you with a quote I recently shared with Jason Beghe:

Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth. – Mahatma Gandhi

  1. Hmmmmmmm. Plot thickens. And everybody following is being played. For now.

  2. “That Haggis and the Troika, in the face of 1 [the short video above], continued to defraud and deceive the public speaks volumes to their character and motivation.”

    Agreed.

    “If you can’t see that, chances are your cognitive faculties have been severely affected by excessive ASC participation. If that is the case, probably your only realistic hope for future happiness starts with about 3-400 hours of Scientology objective processes.”

    Oh, the irony.

  3. One of the saddest parts of the misrepresentation by Troika, Inc., is that the general non-Scientology public is swept up in a swirling mass of confusion regarding the subject. Thanks for keeping reality alive, Marty.

  4. A sad footnote to the picture created by Troika, Inc and other ASC wannabes is the confusion that the general non-Scientology public experiences when trying to look at the subject. They only see intrigue and salacious tidbits, never the real subject.

  5. Funny that Haggis hasn’t really done anything of any significance in the industry since his claim that he’s been a “victim” of Scientology.

    Guess nobody, not even the Biz wants to hire a perpetual whiner.

    Also I guess hitching one’s star to a known pedophile enabler like Back Page Tony isn’t such a good idea if one wants to keep their credibility intact either.

    As far as I’m concerned the ASC either suffering from cognitive dissonance or is in full tilt hypocrisy mode by using the same tactics they claim the Church currently uses against critics. Tactics that were perfected by Rinder himself when he headed OSA.

    To quote Marildi “Oh the irony”.

  6. The children are back at Father Ortega’s HQ furiously dissecting “Paul Haggis and Backpage Tony Ortega”, and speculating and pretending to have brilliant and valuable insights into Marty Rathbun’s interior world, into Marty Rathbun’s motives, into Marty Rathbun’s purpose, and who really wrote “Paul Haggis and Backpage Tony Ortega”. Must be Father Ortega’s convenient and imaginary nemesis and boogyman the “OSA”. And none of Father Ortega’s children call each other out on chirping about things they actually have no way of really knowing anything about. But that never stops Father Ortega and his unpaid kids from posting themselves into their daily fog of self importance and self congratulations for having figured the world out.

  7. If we did not love these people, they would not affect us. Marty. As long as you love, they have you. Please stop loving them.

  8. I know how wrong it sounds to ask you to reduce your ARC for the world and the people in it. Distance creating is an ability. It is a skill. An ability. But it is just as valid as creating ARC. It aligns with “let go”. This is the upper level. Reduce ARC, not create it. Who the fuck wants to create ARC with anti Humanity?

  9. Comments below; are they the same person? Weird…

  10. This could be the hottest controversy since the JFK assasination. I expect that many many books will be written and possibly a mini series will be produced dramatizing all the twists and turns in this absolutely fascinating human interest puzzle. I am currently sketching this out with a CAD program to follow all the characters and events in an effort to nail down what really happened while all the personnel are still living .

    One thing … what is this troika again you speak of?

    • Marty has so far only revealed a “PR” Troika:

      1) Leah Remini
      2) Mike Rinder
      3) Tony Ortega

      There seems to be an Intelligence Troika further back in the shadows (hint: only one of the above seems to be a member of this troika and oddly enough despite his qualifications, Mike Rinder is almost certainly not one of them).

    • The “troika” is Ortega, Remini and Rinder as far as I understand it.
