                                 Scientologists try to board Pirate Party

Published: 17 Nov 11 15:52 CET


Scientologists are trying to join Germany’s upstart Pirate Party, it has emerged, just weeks after it was revealed that two regional party figures had previously belonged to the neo-Nazi National Democratic Party (NPD).

    Two Pirates exposed as former NPD members - Politics (12 Oct 11)

Pirate Party leaders have confirmed that a number of applicants from North Rhine-Westphalia had been refused membership because of their known affiliation with Scientology.

Scientology, which calls itself a religion is not recognised as such in Germany, but is considered anti-constitutional and potentially subversive by authorities. The group's members are monitored closely by domestic intelligence officials.

The Pirates are “aware of the alleged involvement of members of the Scientology organization,” said party deputy chairman Bernd Schlömer. There are no known cases outside of North Rhine-Westphalia.

A spokeswoman for the Church of Scientology in Düsseldorf said Scientologists made their own decisions on which parties to join and if they had become involved with the Pirates, “it was in no way initiated by us.”

Schlömer said that the Pirates’ regional blocks made party admission decisions, although it could be decided in December whether there should be nationally controlled criteria that could automatically exclude Scientologists.

Such a determination could conceivably apply retroactively, according to the Süddeutsche Zeitung.

A national Pirate spokesman told the Süddeutsche that in general, party members view religion as a "private matter," but some Pirates have been calling online for a ban on Scientologists joining the party.

Pirates in North Rhine Westphalia have been particularly vociferous, charging online that there was “very clear evidence of active Scientologists among new members.”

Valentin Seipt, a Pirate Party district chairman in Freising, Bavaria resigned in October after being exposed as a former NPD member. Matthias Bahner, who is a Pirate Party district council member in Greifswald, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania remained in his position after arguing his membership was a mistake he made in his youth.

Re: Rinder Speaks to the German Media

    This was forwarded to me.. not an "official translation" but I pretty good one.


    Ex-Scientologist about Cult Leader: "He Beat me, He had me Clean Toilets"

    Interview: Marc Felix Serrao

    For 20 years, Michael Rinder was the head of the feared intelligence agency of the Church of Scientology. In 2007 he left - because he couldn't cope with the cult leader's totalitarian methods anymore. Since then his own family despises him. In his first interview he explains why an open revolt in Scientology is only a matter of time.

    Since a few days ago, all hell has broken loose at Scientology. A Scientologist with conviction by the name of Debbie Cook sharply criticized the cult leader David Miscavige and his alleged wasteful conduct with donations in an e-mail sent to thousands of other Scientologists.

    Such strong statements were until now only known to come from former members and not from within the organization. An isolated occurence? Not at all, says Michael Rinder. There are few people who know the cult as well as the 56 year old Australian. Rinder already grew up in a family of Scientologists. He was a spokesperson and for more than 20 years head of the Office of Special Affairs, Scientology's infamous intelligence agency.

    In 2007 he left, because, as he says, he couldn't cope anymore with the totalitarian methods of the cult leader. In his first interview, which appears in Germany, he explains why an open revolt in Scientology is from his perspective, a mere question of time.

    SZ: Mr. Rinder, is the Church of Scientology in a state of crisis?

    Michael Rinder: It is. If you want to know why, you need to know who Debbie Cook is. She is the author of that critical mail - and she was a member of the Sea Organisation within Scientology (editorial remark: That's the name of the cult's elite unit; its members wear military-style uniforms and address their superiors with "Sir".)

    In contrast to people like me, Debbie was the whole time a member of the Church in good standing. She was popular, she enjoyed a lot of respect. This means that most members will have read her mail. And what Debbie has written impinges on Scientologists: She's quoting L Ron Hubbard's rules (editorial remark: who is the late cult founder, who died in 1986 and is enthusiastically adored by the members to this day) And she points out that very much of what the leadership of the Church does these days grossly contradicts them.

    SZ: According to Scientology, Debbie Cook represents an individual opinion, which was a sign of a "small, ignorant and unenlightened view of today's world."

    Rinder: This is a lame PR answer. It's an attempt at damage control, nothing more.

    SZ: And how big is the damage?

    Rinder: It's considerable. This can also be infered from the reactions following the first statement. By now Debbie has even been called an apostate. It may sound bizarre to your ears, but it is a message that is
    mainly directed at members. Debbie is an apostate, don't believe a word she says!

    SZ: What do you think, how many members secretely share Cook's criticism?

    Rinder: The majority.

    SZ: Seriously?

    Rinder: Yes. If the parishioners were to talk openly with you, everyone of them could tell you a story about the "vulture culture".

    SZ: Vulture culture?

    Rinder: It's the attitude of vultures. The obsession to squeeze as much money out of people as possible. This kind of thinking has permeated the organization in its entirety. And when Debbie brings up this painful subject, it resonates with every Scientologist.

    SZ: Then why aren't there thousands of such protest mails?

    Rinder: People are afraid, especially of the media. Debbie also didn't intend for her mail to become public.

    SZ: Do you know what's happening to her now?

    Rinder: We're not in contact.

    SZ: But if there is anyone who knows how Scientology deals with a critic, it's you.

    Rinder: That's true. I even have quite a precise idea of what is currently going on. At first the facebook police is activated. It informs all the members that Debbie must not remain "friends" with anybody. Then she is given the label of "suppressive person" - a prohibition of contact with her.

    And later you'll be able to observe an ever increasing number of attempts to paint the woman as a liar. As somebody who doesn't know anything. As a disgruntled former member who holds a grudge. That's standard procedure.

    SZ: That works?

    Rinder: Not as it used to. A lot of Scientology staff members live a completely isolated life. They don't read the press, they completely cut themselves off from anything that could be critical.

    For every member asking questions they need somebody to handle it. That's the nice thing about Debbie Cook. At first she's just causing a media reaction. But the long term consequences are enormous. The doubt has been planted. It's going to bear fruit.

    SZ: Let's talk about David Miscavige, the head of Scientology and Tom Cruise's best friend. Are we witnessing the beginning of the end of his rule?

    Rinder: No, that already happened before. But what is happening now is going to speed up his demise. His power depends on people listening to him. That they trust him to lead Scientology into the promised land. When this image starts to shake the whole structure of the Church starts to shake. It's entirely aligned to his person. Nobody there can do or decide anything without Miscavige's agreement.

    SZ: A dictator?

    Rinder: Absolutely.

    SZ: How well do you know him?

    Rinder: Oh, I know David Miscavige. We have worked together for a long time and very closely too.

    SZ: What kind of a person is he, good and bad both considered?

    Rinder: The bad clearly predominates. But [good/well]... He's an extremely fast learner, very intelligent. There is almost nothing which he cannot intellectually process. But he uses his intelligence to manipulate others.

    He's incredibly vain and very vindictive. If you question something he says he's going to teach you a lesson. He never allows people around him a minute of rest. His punishment is often arbitrary. You never know when you have to clean the toilet or when he's going to slap your face.

    SZ: He punched you?

    Rinder: Maybe 50 times. He beat me. He had me clean toilets. I had to sleep on the bare ground. I was sent into the hole. Things like that.

    SZ: Did you fight back?

    Rinder: I just covered my face with my arms. I wasn't the only one. There are many reports about his violent behaviour.

    SZ: Supposedly you also hit others.

    Rinder: Yes. David Miscavige told me and others: You'll now go over to that person and hit him. And if you don't do that then I will and after that I'm going to hit you too.

    SZ: Scientology denies what you say. Your own wife called you a liar on CNN.

    Rinder: People like my wife say everything out of fear. They march like good little robots and tell what Miscavige told them to. There were several wives of ex-members on CNN. Two of them even used the exact same word order.

    SZ: Supposedly Miscavige also has a dog that wears a uniform and which has to be greeted by members with a salute?

    Rinder: That's correct. The uniform is blue and there are golden stripes on the front.

    SZ: You describe yourself as an "independent Scientologist". What does that mean?

    Rinder: I believe that our philosophy has the potential to help people lead a better life. The organization, however, uses this knowledge to get to their money.

    SZ: So you aren't interested in obliterating critics and in world domination?

    Rinder: No. And I know that this is a huge topic in Germany in particular. This arrogance: We're superior, we alone know the way to happiness. David Miscavige bears responsibility for the fact that Scientology and its members are considered to be radical - in the sense of: crazy jihadists.

    This image does not represent reality, but is reinforced time and again when the church acts against critics and journalists like yourself and treats them like dirt.

    SZ: You're refering to the infamous "fair game" policy - the ruthless handling of critics. It's by far not the only principle that Scientology owes its bad reputation to. Such rules have always existed. They were created by the founder, L. Ron Hubbard.

    Rinder: [Well.] That could be a long discussion. So: I can understand how you arrive at that perspective. The "fair game" policy should never have been written that way [in the first place] and it was badly misinterpreted. The same holds true for the policy of "disconnection"...

    SZ: The duty to cut off contact with people who are "suppressive" in the eyes of Scientology.

    Rinder: Exactly. If you read everything Hubbard wrote on the subject, you will see that it was meant as a last resort. Disconnection was supposed to allow someone to be happy.

    If you are in an abusive relationship, then it is best to cut off contact. That was how it was [originally] intended. As a means to help the individual, not as a political means of control which grants the Church the power to say: You must no longer see this person or that person.

    SZ: Listening to you, it sounds as if Hubbard had been harmless. Ronald DeWolf, who passed away in 1991 and was the oldest son of the Scientology founder, described his father in an interview as a sadistic, violent and paranoid occultist, who in contrast to his own teachings of purity had drunk a lot of alcohol and also taken drugs.

    Rinder: First of all, I know that Nibs (editorial remark: De Wolf's nickname) has later taken back these statements. And secondly, I myself have spent a lot of time with Hubbard, as much as few others. He was the most brilliant person I ever got to know.

    Yes, he was moody at times and he could get angry when something went wrong. But was it always like that? No. Did he treat people like Miscavige? Not one bit. Did he care for his family? Absolutely. Did he take drugs? Absolutely not. Was he polite? Incredibly. Was he funny? Very much so.

    SZ: That sounds all fine and dandy. But it was Hubbard who created this unshakable distinction between the supposedly [clear] Scientologists and the rest, the "wogs", the "raw meet", the "suppressives". This world view of black and white, either with us or against us, that's pure Hubbard.

    And you yourself experience it, since you left, Mister Rinder. Now you are one of the bad guys. Even your family has declared war on you. How do you reconcile all of that?

    Rinder: By pushing out that church-like kind of thinking out of my life. We're on the same page: This position of us fighting against the rest of the world and treating every critic as an enemy, is wrong. You may find individual passages by Hubbard with which you can demonstrate that we're in disagreement.

    So what? There are many passages that have very different content. I'm not a full time interpreter of Hubbard's words who thinks about how to defend him with every sentence I utter. I just want the abuse to stop which is currently happening on a daily basis within the church.

    SZ: Your wife calls you a person which hates children and your daughter calls you a bigamist. Does that hurt?

    Rinder: Of course it hurts. But I have to protect myself. I know why they do that. They think that they don't have a choice. They even have visited my 86 year old mother in a home for elderly people and got her to write [mean] letters to me. But I know who I am. I know how I live.

    Now I have a five year old step-son who I love to bits and pieces. We have a wonderful relationship. If I really was such a horrible person, then why was Cathy married to me for 30 years? You know, I don't even read all that dirt anymore which they throw at me.

    SZ: From your point of view: Is there any way for you and your family to ever find reconciliation and peace?

    Rinder: Only if they wake up. Only if they recognize that they have been brainwashed.

    SZ: If you take a look at all you experienced: Do you see yourself as a victim or as a perpetrator?

    Rinder: I'm not a victim. I'm just reaping part of that which I have sown. And that's why I want to do my part in ending the abuse in this organization.

    SZ: There are few countries which treat the Church of Scientology in as critical a fashion as Germany: As a dangerous cult that financially ruins people, which knows no freedom of speech and which recklessly attacks critics and former members. In short: as a danger. Can you understand this criticism?

    Rinder: Certainly. But I would like to argue for a differentiation. The organization and its leadership are the problem, not the normal members. They should be allowed to think and believe in whatever they want without being stigmatized. After all, in many cases these are the same people who are being abused by the Church by pulling their money out of their pockets and by controlling them through the threat of disconnection.

    SZ: The latter is also of interest to the german Office for Protection of the Constitution.

    Rinder: And rightly so.

    SZ: If you take a look at all you experienced: Do you see yourself as a victim or as a perpetrator?

    Rinder: I'm not a victim. I'm just reaping part of that which I have sown. And that's why I want to do my part in ending the abuse in this organization.

                      Largest On-Line German Magazine Picks up Alexander Jentzsch's Story

    This is an important article for Germans to read!
    Below is a google translation of the article but do click the article link, visit the page and click the 'fotos' link of the 11 pictures Karen provided :
  http://www.spiegel.de/panorama/scientology-praesidentensohn-alexander-jentzsch-gestorben-a-852962.html

    05.09.2012

    The case of Alexander Jentzsch life and death in Scientology

    Mona Botros
    SPIEGEL ONLINE, Hamburg, Germany

    [..] Karen de la Carriere finally realized not know what the message meant. Casually she read what someone had written to her on Facebook. "Have you heard that Alexander Jentzsch's dead?"


    De La Carriere thought she tells it today, first to a confusion of names. But it was not about her 75-year-old ex-husband Heber Jentzsch. Alexander was actually meant. Her son.

    He was 27 years old, he died in early July. His death has become a Number: 2012-04365. Under this case, determine the number of Los Angeles authorities. There were no signs of external violence, there is no indication of a suicide, the coroner. Tissue tests will now shed light on the cause of death.

    The name Jentzsch under Scientology insiders known worldwide. Since 1982, Alexander's father is lifting the international spokesman for the organization, up to the nineties he was the face of Scientology in public. His mother was the founder of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard personally recruited and trained.

    "He begged me to sign"

    Scientology says the reason of the death of Alexander to know already. In a circular e-mail announcing his godfather, a longtime Scientologist, Alexander died from a reaction to prescription drugs. He took it because he suffered from an accident caused by back pain. A surprising announcement: In Scientology drugs are generally frowned upon.

    Alexander Jentzsch was a handsome boy with dark eyes, to glamorous events, he was seen alongside Scientology celebrities like John Travolta and Chick Corea.

    But his life was anything but magical. The resolution of the small family begins when Alexander was three years old. Karen falls on the leader of Scientology, David Miscavige, due to a rash statement of favor. He orders the separation of Karen and Heber, 1988 following a divorce. Alexander now lives with his mother, the father is arranged a payment of $ 280 for the upkeep of his son. "In fact, nothing has paid jack. How could he, with an income of twelve dollars a week?" Says de la Carriere.

    She struggles to push through herself and her son. Although the parents share custody, Alexander sees his father, who represents Scientology around the world, almost never. Under the separation time is Alexander suffered his life.

    With eight years Alexander is recruited into the Sea Org, the elite organization of Scientology. The lure must have been irresistible for the boy. "They told him he would be able to spend much time with his father," recalls de la Carriere. "He begged me to sign." Alexander comes to a Scientology boarding school outside of Los Angeles.

    "All information is checked"

    Three years later, Alexander is in Clearwater, Florida, was appointed to the Fort Harrison Hotel, the spiritual headquarters of the sect. Scientologists come from all over the world come here to prove expensive courses. The boy had passed on cleaning toilets and scrubbing floors have up to twelve hours a day, it tells his mother. An education? None.

    Then something happened that Alexander probably charge for the rest of his life and what is known until years later.

    When Alexander is twelve years old, a 40-year-old Scientologist goes to him, who also works there. There have been repeated sexual assaults. When the matter is known internally, it acts quickly. Within 24 hours, Alexander is sent to the west coast in order to prevent any of the authorities of Florida.

    There will be long hours of interrogation, must have known at the end of the boy: he must never speak about the matter. De la Carriere experiences 14 years later by the abuse of her son. Dropouts who were involved in the cover-up of the incident reported to her what happened then is Alexander. "I remembered the moment he could not look me in the eyes when I picked him up from the airport," says Karen. "I dare not to think about what they did to him."

    The Department of Scientology with the spare in such cases is, "Office of Special Affairs" or OSA. Your mission is to prevent any damage of Scientology. Officially, the unit for public relations and legal affairs is responsible, in fact it is a kind of its own intelligence.

    Mike Rinder was for years at the head of the unit. Since 2007, he quit and is one of the best experts on the organization. "In a case like OSA makes every effort to keep the affair secret. All information is checked and every Scientologist is put under pressure, not to talk about it. With nobody," said cattle.

    Deported to the prison camp

    Mike Rinder knows the family Jentzsch, since Alexander was small, has worked closely for years with lifters. He witnessed the president of CSI increasingly at the head of the organization fell into disfavor. "David Miscavige has beaten him and humiliated," says cattle. "He could not stand that jack was all so popular." Miscavige had given him less and less jobs, sometime Heber Jentzsch disappeared entirely from the scene. He was reassigned to the international headquarters, two hours east of Los Angeles. "There, they locked him up in the hole," said the former head of OSA.

    "The Hole", which are two small office buildings, which are set up as a penal colony, and specifically designed for executives. Heber Jentzsch has lived there around 2006, according Rinders descriptions in atrocious conditions. Jentzsch had no access to his son. Mike Rinder knows whereof he speaks. He has seen the aged president there, as he also had to serve a prison sentence.

    Scientology objected Rinders descriptions: Jentzsch live and work in the church facilities. "Due to his age he rarely occurs on public than in the past", a church lawyer, wrote in a note to SPIEGEL ONLINE. Heber was "proud as we, at 50 years continuous service." Incidentally would Scientology should not rule on family Jentzsch and the death of Alexander continued.

    Alexander was isolated in his last two years of life, not only from his father but also by his mother. She got out in 2010 and since then is one of the movement "Independent Scientologists" to. The community still believes in Hubbard's teachings and practiced his methods.

    De la Carriere began, they become too critical of the organization, they declared an enemy of Scientology. Henceforth, no Scientologist may be in contact with her, not even her own son. "Alexander called me and said that I should not call him anymore and do not send e-mails."

    Separation to death

    Alexander Jentzsch and his wife Andrea leave the Sea Org in 2010, but remain members of Scientology. Andrea is expecting a child, and in the elite organization babies are unwanted. The couple is trying to rebuild their lives in Texas, but they experience setbacks. Andrea loses the child, Alexander dismissed. The two seem to distance themselves from each other. "Shortly before his death he has changed his relationship status on Facebook," recalls his mother.

    Alexander returns to the West Coast, alone and penniless. His mother, now a successful art dealer, he may still not ask for help. He comes in with his parents in the northern outskirts of Los Angeles. On 2 July he lay in bed in the morning, telling his parents later the police. He had not felt well and complained of fever. In the evening, he was still just lying there Sun No doctor is summoned. The next morning is an emergency call at the emergency room. Alexander is dead

    A few days later someone grieving mother has leaked a photo taken two weeks before his death. Since Alexander smiles into the camera. "It seemed to be doing well," Karen says desperately. Why the young man died?

    DISPLAY
    Ed Winter, spokesman for forensic Los Angeles County says, whether drugs were found near the body. And: "We have evidence that it had been some time dead before the emergency call was received on the morning of July 3." The investigation goes on, Alexander's death remains a mystery.

    On 10 July stands in front of a yacht in Lake Los Angeles. The sky is bright blue, the sea is calm. There is a heat wave, the first of the summer. The thermometer climbs to almost 40 degrees. On board the ship is the urn with ashes of Alexander. Be released as his remains, there is no funeral service.

    Karen de la Carriere organized a three days later. She was allowed to bury her son. "Scientology has intervened in the matter and our separation enforced even after Alexander's death," she says. Even one last look at his body has denied her daughter in law. [..]

                         OSA / Scientology Lawyers attacking German Filmmaker

After my Broadcast Films about The Office of Special Afairs OSA that is now in the
NEW YORK FILMFESTIVAL and my Film about the "Death of a Scientologist" - OT 8 BIGGI REICHERT. It seems that OSA now has taken on my case.

Last week I received a Law enforcement document, telling me to not further broadcast the biggi reichert story and to not say several things that where part of the film.

Sadly the problem is, that only very few Scientologists are aware of what happened to her when she came to FLAG on feb 28th and left on March 1th of 2006 with 28 Brandmark - looking wounds on her head.

                                      Scientology is still a red flag in Germany

Critics in Germany accuse the Scientology sect of denying fundamental human rights. The organization insists that it's a religion. While it is not banned, Germany's domestic intelligence monitors the group.

                                                          Letter to Daily Journal Editorial from Germany is, uh, strange


LENGTHY CORRESPONDENCE ABOUT SCIENTOLOGY WRITTEN IN GERMAN

We in the newsroom have always applauded ourselves for reaching the masses, but we never in our wildest dreams expected to receive a 120 page letter to the editor from a resident of a small town in Germany.

Still, about three weeks ago, we did. A large manila envelope arrived in the Daily Journal newsroom with a forwarding address of Ellerndam 11, Deutschland.

Inside the envelope were a cover letter and a lengthy document composed in German on fairly high quality paper. The cover letter was dated October 30, 2007. Aside from the date, we could not understand a single word of it. A quick Google translation revealed this much:

“Dear Sir or Madam,

Attached I send a couple of documents and facts about the scientology church and organizations that are or may be deprived of you, and could be of interest.

Yours truly,

Karsten Sasse”

The main document was dated March 3, 1999 and addressed to the United Nation Commission for Human Rights. The text had no paragraphs or page breaks of any kind. While a translation of the entire letter, manifesto, novella, whatever the case may be, is not on our agenda, it is pretty obvious it has something to do with Scientology. The word is repeated several times in all caps throughout.

A dimes worth of research put us in touch with another publication, the Cadiz Record of Cadiz, Ky. Cadiz Record Reporter Franklin Clark composed a piece in 2011 when the Record received the exact same letter at their office.

Clark said he gets calls all the time from other publications receiving the same letter.

"There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it. It doesn't matter the size of the paper, big or small," Clark said.

The date of receipt of the letter is also very staggered. This publication received the letter in September 2013, two years after the Cadiz Record received theirs. The Sun Chronicle of Attleboro, North Attleboro, Mass., received the same package in June of this year.

Whatever point Sasse may be trying to get across must certainly be important to him. Assuming he is spending his own money on postage and duplication fees this project must certainly be costing him a pretty penny. And while this reporter loves nothing more than to hold those in power accountable, it might help if he could read the darn letter. A request to the editors for a three-week expense paid trip to the German Alps for further investigation was not approved as of press time.

                           German domestic intelligence service says its reviewing its surveillance of Scientology

Published November 26, 2013

BERLIN –  Germany's domestic intelligence service says it is reviewing its long-running surveillance of Scientology.

The agency, which tracks extremists in Germany, has monitored Scientology since the late 1990s and said in its latest annual report it considers the belief system "totalitarian" and a threat to democracy.

A spokeswoman for the agency on Tuesday confirmed German media reports over the weekend that its nationwide observation was being reviewed "as part of a process of prioritization."

She spoke on condition of anonymity according to agency regulations.

Interior Ministry spokesman Philipp Spauschus told reporters Monday there are no plans to stop surveillance of Scientology entirely.

A 2012 domestic intelligence report on Scientology claimed the group's membership in Germany had fallen by about 10 percent from a year earlier, to between 3,500 and 4,500.

                                               New Ideal Org and Petition
Some days ago a German newspaper has written that the Scientologists in Stuttgart (a town in the South of Germany) wants to open an "Ideal Org".

They have bought a "house" in Stuttgart and the Ideal Org should be as usual the biggest one in Germany the newspaper says.

Anonymous Stuttgart has made on change[dot]org a petition against this Org. The petition asks the mayor of Stuttgart to stop Scientology to do this.
