A recent whimsical article in Scientology’s “Freedom Special Report” blog, attacks critics with accusations of “lies, crimes, violence, infidelity and betrayal”, reflecting an L. Ron Hubbard policy "If attacked on some vulnerable point by anyone or anything or any organization, always find or manufacture enough threat against them to cause them to sue for peace."
Scientology has a long history of attacking critics, including ex-Scientologists, media, psychiatrists, governments, and basically any person or entity that speaks negatively about their organization.
In this Freedom rant, the writer describes several critics as “The Posse of Lunatics - - A Story of Lies, Crimes, Violence, Infidelity and Betrayal.” The article borders humour when reading: “They saddle up and ride in loose formation, incessantly shooting their mouths and crying in their whiskey about how they’ve been dealt a bad hand. It’s true, they’re misfits and drifters to a man, but in reality the Posse is nothing more than a half-dozen or so embittered apostates.”
Most of Scientology’s publications are void of publishing dates and many times missing the name of the author. Perhaps the author is none other than the narcissistic cult leader himself or one of his timid Posse members? Or maybe dating an article a billion years from now would be a space gulper, so let’s keep it uniform, starting now? Billion year Scientology contracts leave one to ponder “what comes after this prolonged, alien space odyssey” - - a month to month membership or is it over?
“Freedom” names the “Posse” leader as Marty Rathbun - - the “Kingpin”, and goes on to name Mike Rinder, Tom DeVoch, Amy Scobee, Steve Hall, and Jason Beghe. Also referred to as “Bonnie and Clyde”, is Marc and Claire Headley, and Jeff Hawkins as "a member of the cyber-terrorist organization known as Anonymous."
However, when the tables are tuned and one examines who the real hatemonger, criminals and terrorists are, Scientology stands tall on the volcano of operating thetans. When the cult author of Scientology states "I’m drinking lots of rum and popping pinks and greys", and "Somebody someday will say ‘this is illegal.’ By then be sure the orgs [Scientology organizations] say what is legal or not", society needs to beware of these cult beliefs and behaviour.
“Scientology has a reputation for hostile action toward anyone who criticizes it in a public forum; executives within the organization have proclaimed that it is "not a turn-the-other-cheek religion."
“Hubbard detailed his rules for attacking critics in a number of policy letters, including one often quoted by critics as "the Fair Game policy." This allowed that those who had been declared enemies of the Church, called "suppressive persons" or simply "SP," "May be deprived of property or injured by any means...May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed."
And as cult followers look upon their leaders as god-like, the Freedom “Posse” blog article is no surprise. In the 1970s, Hubbard continued to codify the policy of "attacking the attacker" and assigned a term to it that is used frequently within Scientology: "dead agenting." Used as a verb, "dead agenting" is described by Hubbard as a technique for countering negative accusations against Scientology by diverting the critical statements and making counter-accusations against the accuser. In other words, "attack the attacker".
When Scientology’s crimes are examined, one could spend volumes of time reviewing their incredible escapades, filled with accounts that read like a science-fiction, terrorist novel. An incredible paranoid cult of crimes as in the following:
“In 1978, a number of Scientologists including L. Ron Hubbard's wife Mary Sue Hubbard (who was second in command in the organization at the time) were convicted of perpetrating the largest incident of domestic espionage in the history of the United States called "Operation Snow White". This involved infiltrating, wiretapping, and stealing documents from the offices of Federal attorneys and the Internal Revenue Service.”

What Scientology calls the “Posse of Lunatics”, is a group of people that obviously is getting under the skin of cult leader, David Miscavige, a man accused of fits of rage, beating his staff, and ordering followers to years in Scientology prison camps (RPF), for so-called rehabilitation.
