OSA Plant

Richard


 

Richard is a perceptive newbie. He expresses his opinion about ARS, but since it is a critical one (never mind that it is ALSO critical of Scientology) it can't be HIS opinion, right? He must have an ulterior motive !

Because of Scientology's presence in the news recently, I was curious enough to visit this NG when I learned of it.

I have heard outrageous rhetoric from both "sides," and I sincerely hope that the most fanatical anti-CoS zealots stop and think for a moment. Is this fight what makes you groove? Have you yourselves become dependent on CoS, but in a different way? In the end, if you truly believe that personal freedom is something worth fighting for, then you have to respect the right of the other to believe what he will. Much of the strong language used in this NG isn't directed towards the need for justice to be served, but against beliefs held by the other side.

In your haste to stamp out what appears as a threat to freedom, you may be trampling on the freedom of someone else. Lots of pain, here... I hope you can all find a way out of your individual states of war and emergency.

And here is the party-line rationalization as to why the above poster must necessarily be an OSA plant, or a Scientologist on duty. Check also Richard's most fitting response.

OSA is not "pro" Scientology. OSA is anti-critic. OSA will do whatever it takes to stop critical communcation about Scientology, i.e. spamming, rambo litigation tactics, and drive-by recriminations:

One of the most effective ways OSA has of disrupting critical communications is to recruit a volunteer to do the above Richard-rant. It is effective because there is no visible connection between the volunteer and Scientology's secret police force.

Richard:

Xapped, there is a reason why there's no visible connection between me and Scientology. There isn't one.

It is even more effective if the volunteer is not a Scientologist. The best anti-critic OSA volunteers are those who were disinclined towards a.r.s. somewhat to begin with, and then maybe helped out a little by OSA. There is no proof that "Richard" is connected with OSA.

However, try talking about Scientology or something similar outside of the news group. Talk to a hundred people, or a thousand, if you can. How many come up with a "you must be as bad as the people you disagree with" line of thought? That is a very specialized line of attack which is used by Bernie, Garry, Ronsamigo et al. It is natural to be a little careful, but when somebody comes out and rantingly accuses others of ranting, that is a Scientology OSA trademark, called the "criminal mind".

Another throwaway personnel pool OSA uses is Scientologists in the condition of "doubt" or below but who still want to be Scientology super humans.

Criminal mind?? Jeez, louise, guy - lighten up. Re-read that passage you wrote. You basically said that anyone who isn't a Scientologist, and who shares my point of view, is an OSA "henchman." Because it's a very "specialized" line of thought. What's so specialized about seeing the warring attitude for what it is ON EITHER SIDE??

I'm not at war with you or anyone else. When I read an opinion, I try to keep an open mind. You should try it, instead of classifying things into "this" kind of "persuasive" tactic or "that" kind of "line."

Sometimes people just think a thing, and then they say it, Xapped. Closing yourself off to regular human interaction/communication will tie you in knots eventually, perhaps as it did to Lisa.
