As an hysterical anti-Scientology troll, Tony Ortega is loving the present environment.
It’s an environment where, once any accusation has been made, it must be true. Even the position of “I don’t know – I wasn’t there” means you are violating the accuser and raping them again.
So, in this environment, Tony’s business of creating legions of hysterical anti-Scientology ninnies is flourishing.
His present accusation is that Scientology was all about believing in, and getting away with, pedophilia.
Even providing the omitted context for the obscure Hubbard quotes that Tony is digging out means only one of two things.
1. That you are permanently damaged in the head by Scientology, or
2. That you yourself are a pedophile.
Anyone who questions an accusation is guilty of the crime himself, and he is committing that crime again on anyone who was victimized in the past.
No rational or reasonable discourse is allowed. All accusations are true. All other explanations or evidence are false.
The only other environment I have seen which is similar to this one is a Scientology “Committee of Evidence” where all accusations are true, and any defense or protest is evidence that you are guilty of the crimes of which you are accused.
Welcome to Tony Ortega’s optimum troll environment – where ideology and emotionally manipulative tribalism, and never reason, rules.
In Tony’s latest article, he rewrites Hubbard’s passages from Mission Earth. He writes this, and only this, by way of providing his readers context:
“Also, Hubbard prefaced the series by saying it was satire, but if it is, it’s really not clear what, exactly, he was satirizing.”
So I’ve provided here Hubbard’s Introduction to Mission Earth, where Hubbard provides a history of satire and how he saw his Mission Earth series as part of it. I’m not defending Hubbard’s writing here, just providing the context for Tony’s re-written synopsis, and to expose Ortega’s manipulative ploy on his readers.
Also, for the inevitable hysterical charges that I am unsympathetic to victims of abuse of all kinds, and probably a rapist/pedophile/wife-beater myself, I too have experienced abuse in my life, and I wrote about the best advice I’ve ever seen for any victim of abuse.
And the book is here:
Hysterical Ninny-ism is not good for anyone. And it is especially not good for victims of abuse.
Tony Ortega has quite a history of trolling rape victims and other victims of abuse.
Here is Tony Ortega’s own entry on Snopes.com, detailing the time he used two real teenage victims of kidnapping and rape in order to make a joke out their experiences.

SATIRE?! Trolltega is having an issue with someone saying something is SATIRE when he himself used 2 teen aged girls who had spoken publicly about being kidnapped and raped in his ‘Survive This’ hoax, then claimed it was “satire”. It wasn’t really clear what, exactly, Trolltega was satirizing. It was just cruelty, flat out cruelty.
And as for his pedophilia claims against Scientology, this allegedly expert ::cough:: on Scientology who likes to say he’s been reporting on Scientology since 1995 [technically true, but he hasn’t consistently reported on it since 2008, with only a couple articles before then], never once brought up this pedophilia in all these years? So he’s sat by for YEARS and never spoke up about this allegedly pedophilia in Scientology? Or did the alleged expert only just learn about this? And if so, how much of expert is he? How good are his ‘sources’ then?
Trolltega will jump on any bandwagon he can to keep his name in the media up above the underground bunker. He doesn’t wants to remain the dank dark basement where the trolls he’s created gather; but he doesn’t realize, he’s a prisoner of his own device and of his own creation.
Alanzo, what do you think of the idea that Hubbard didn’t actually write ANY of Mission Earth? I seem to remember someone proved that some years back.
For all we know, Pat Broker wrote it. Vaughn says the manuscripts arrived to him typewritten, and there were any number of other items going on at that time that were attributed to Hubbard that, in fact, there wasn’t any actual proof that it was. We used to have to relay telexes and despatches all the time in External Comm (at Flag) that were assumed by their recipients (and no one corrected that impression) as being FROM Hubbard that were definitely not. They were given us in OTHER PEOPLE’s handwriting, people right there at flag, or at the Guardian Office, or at the CMO. I never wrote Hubbard because I knew he never saw or answered any of it, let alone originated the “plans” and games – like the Birthday Game – that people thought he did. I know that for a fact because I saw who the actual traffic came from.
Anyway, just a thought, because another area of hysteria is the insistence of assigning anything and everything TO Hubbard that was in fact, not.
I remember the idea was that a being could do anything and be anybody. So why not just BE Hubbard?
Battlefield Earth and Mission Earth are two of the few fiction works I ever read of Hubbard’s. And they do seem very different in style.
But I can’t know if he wrote them. I could totally see the bright idea from the young turks to write a decology and manipulate the new York times bestsellers list to make Hubbard “the most widely read author of all time”, though.
I could see them do that. Because they were basically criminals.
What I found delightfully ironic was that he didn’t dare [or was too chicken to] publicly reply to Nora’s comment but knew he couldn’t remove it either as Nora is entrenched with Leah’s show…
…oh and hey – the “raping them again” comment reminded me of what one of his most ardent supporters [Obs] essentially accused me of doing this based on the way Tony deliberately twisted a comment he made about “scum” outing the identity of one of Masterson’s victims. I like Obs and was surprised to see her make such an awful comment when she pretty much knew it was me he was talking about… well, Obs – the “victim” was well aware of this and had actually encouraged me to go ahead [you have my email and I can prove this to you]… you were also there when Tony said he wanted one of the “Howdycon guys to start an argument so he could ban me and actually said that he said it in jest… have you ever considered that you might be actually being “played” by him… I mean, your support of him is verging on a Cog Dis level… just sayin’.
Don’t get me wrong – I still think he provides a really valuable service and writes really well but the way he has disposed of his critics [and commentators like myself willing to butt heads with him] “without sorrow” needs to be reevaluated, no?
Did you ever see the Kevin Costner movie “No Way Out” that had Gene Hackman as Secretary of Defense, and his hyper-loyal, super creepy deputy of Defense played by Will Patton?
Will Patton would perform these long speeches about LOYALTY and BETRAYAL, his eyes squinting and darting here and there.
In the end, right when Gene Hackman was about to go down for some decrepit crime, Will Patton kills himself to save his master.
Obs reminds me of Will Patton in that movie.
