Scientology tries to weasel its way into the minds of the disenfranchised during the year of protest.
The Route Out. On the surface, this website appears to be nothing special. The site, at first glance, is just another bland political action site attempting to raise a “grassroots” movement out of “nothing” with a heavy handed organizational structure.
The Route Out is smothered in Americana, quotes and images from founding documents abound. The wording of the site’s overarching message is so whitewashed, mundane, and apolitical that Tea Partiers and OWSers nodded along with the message, even if it is pretty simplistic.
Who We Are
We here at The Route Out are just a few of the many millions upon millions of people who have suffered in this economy. We are among the millions who can no longer just sit around and hope that someone else is going to fix things for us. Not when we can look toward Washington, D.C. and see a government that, at best, doesn’t have any sort of clear consensus on how to fix things, and at worst is horribly broken.
Our country has been the greatest source of freedom this planet has ever seen. It has earned that distinction because of one thing – because it’s a country of the people, for the people, and by the people. We’ve gotten away from that. Today, our country is being run by interests becoming more and more removed from us; the people. So, it’s time to change that. This is what The Route Out is – one way to regain the country being run by the people; a way to get back to that essence that opened the door to freedom on this planet.
It’s a way for you to get your country back.
Yet when you dig a little further, the crazy begins to show. First the idea to make everything better in the world is too simple; everyone needs to stop being shitty to one another. Ok… But we exist in a state of existence known as reality. In reality people are often quite shitty to everyone- especially on the internet. To make everyone get along all the time, as if we were all trapped in some Pixar style hell, would and could only be accomplished through brainwashing. And then it started to click.
The website encourages visitors to watch several videos on social subjects, but the subjects offered are a bit familiar. They are still whitewashed to make the videos as socially acceptable as possible. As I watched them, Project Chanology started to push to the surface of my mind.
On the “The Route Out Pledge of the Media,” where users can send this “pledge” to news organizations to attempt to change their behavior, there is…
To adopt for organization the precepts of The Way to Happiness.
Fucking sneaky ninja-wannabe Xenu believing loons! Scientology!
So to my fellow protestors, activists, and agitators; be advised. There is a predator in your midst. It seeks to strike at you when you go against the wall of the bureaucracy and the sheer difficulty of the effort makes you lose hope. Like all crazy ass belief systems, it offers hope. Unlike others, this hope has been tailored to your specific situation yet the hope offered is just as hollow. Beware, thou hast been warned.
And in case you think that I may be just seeing ghosts in the machine…
