Chill EB and Me: Rappin' About Scientology

Chill EB and a fan on set (from Chill's Facebook page)
Last night, rapper Chill EB showed up in the comments to the story we had written about his interesting career as a 1990s Bay Area up-and-comer who today is Scientology's in-house hip hop act.

What ensued was several hours of interaction, as the rapper dangled the possibility of an interview with the Voice while also defending himself from several of our readers, who seemed to be in an aggressive mood.

Finally, at about 2 am, Chill offered to meet through Twitter in order to exchange telephone numbers and have a conversation. Instead, a two-hour Direct Message dialogue ensued. After the jump, some background for those unsure who Chill EB is, and our exchange...

As we explained yesterday, Norman Berry, a/k/a Chill EB, started rapping in 1985, and by 1990 and 1991, he was having some success in the Bay Area scene, with several radio hits and steady television commercial work. Things then started to wind down, and in 1994, he decided to end his career.

In 2009, Chill resurfaced with the anti-psychiatry song "Y'all Better," which he has performed for Scientology audiences (the church hates the psychiatric profession with a passion). In the last year, Chill has been showing up at Scientology events, performing at the opening of new buildings, and earlier this year he recorded an official song and video for the International Association of Scientologists titled "Dauntless, Defiant, and Resolute." (During our conversation, I repeatedly refer to this official video as "the IAS" video.) That video was only for internal consumption, and has not been seen outside the church. But in the last few months, an IAS chapter in Copenhagen made its own, rather awkward, video set to the song, and last Thursday night the video leaked to YouTube. We quickly put it up, and it was then picked up by various news organizations.

Yesterday, we followed up our posting of the Copenhagen video by looking at Chill EB's entire career, from his hits in the early 1990s to other songs he has put out recently with Scientology connections. His video for "Define Better," an anti-psychiatry song, for example, links to the website of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, Scientology's anti-psychiatry front group.

During our conversation in the wee hours this morning, I repeatedly asked Chill about seeing the original, official IAS video, which has not leaked yet. He, meanwhile, tries to convince me that he only made the IAS song as retaliation for harassment he says he's been getting from Anonymous, through its website, WhyWeProtest.net (WWP), and in particular a user named OpenComments. [OpenComments turns out to be a YouTube account, not a WWP user. Chill for some reason expected me to be familiar with OpenComments, but I was not.] He also complained about my readers, one of whom revealed to Chill that he had such personal information about him as the names of his grown children. You will also see that I am awkwardly attempting, in some cases, to get a source to keep talking. But if I'm going to print this, it has to be warts and all, I figure.

With that as background, here's how our exchange began at about 2 am. Direct Message is a clunky tool for a flowing conversation; I have rearranged some responses for clarity in the flow of the exchange, but I have not edited the responses themselves, except for minimal changes in punctuation, again, for clarity. If each of us seems like fairly good spellers for Twitter in the middle of the night, well that's how it went, yo. -- T.O.


Hey man. Our conversation is off. One of your readers crossed a line. Given the mentality of your readers I need to learn more about you. I hope you understand. Thank you.

Ah, that's weak. It's a blog. I don't control my readers. I don't even know who most of them are. Call me.

Weak huh, that's supposed to encourage me to call you. Dude I left the military many years ago. I don't have a boss.

Just busting your chops. You seem like a cool guy, which is why I feel like I can talk to you. Let's talk your career, not my readers.

Yeah, I'm pretty cool, with everyone. I try to get along. I understand other people have their hang ups. Nobody is perfect.

Send me a link to the IAS video. I want to feature it!

There is no link. You'd have to contact them directly. You wish to see the video that started it last year look up Y'all Busted on Youtube.

I included the Y'All Busted video in that blog post! Didn't you see it? And I linked to your London performance. It's the IAS vid that I want. So here's the key question. Are you a Scientologist yourself, or just recording and appearing for them?

Tony, I really try not to spend too much time entertaining these blogs. I really am busy. Plus, there's so much hatred and anger. The point you make that it's a blog. Well you're right. I don't have to read it or participate. You ask am I a Scientologist? What is a Scientologist? I know what my answer would be if asked but I don't wish to speak religion & politics.

I don't think I showed any hate or anger in my post. I was genuinely curious about your career, from "Let's Roll" to now "Define Better." Like I said, I can't control my readers. Some of them are former Scientologists, and carry a lot of resentment from their time in. No, you don't have to participate. But my posts reached a lot of people. And anything you say will reach many more. The Voice has reach.

I appreciate that reach of The Voice but I'm not looking for it. I do not take it for granted either. I was hoping you were being facetious.

What's the story on the song "Prove It"? Does it also have a Scientology theme?

Scientology theme? Y'all Busted doesn't even have a Scientology theme. I recorded the IAS song as a result of OC from WWP.

Golden Era helped you record IAS, didn't it? And film your video? What's WWP got to do with it? WWP didn't even know about you until July.

When you were first responding. But these haters who are only trying to be destructive have made me reinstate my "zero tolerance policy,"

All I did was play your videos and write about your career. I didn't attack you. And now I'm just asking simple questions.

I told OC that he kept being a jerk to me I would do another song. So accredit the IAS song as a response to this anonymous attack.

Sure, you want me to believe the IAS song was done to answer some guy at WWP. And not because Scientology was paying, and making a video.

They wouldn't listen. All those critics that would send me bullshit messages. So I recorded that song. I know how to read so it's simple.

Come on, Chill. Games. Let's talk what's really happening. You're in South Africa, right? That's cool. Where did you film the "Prove It" vid?

See. We can't even begin to seriously speak because you're already misleading the conversation. Who ever said there is a video to Prove It? If there is one I haven't seen it and have no knowledge of it. It's nice of you to want to help promote it. If you want to view the video?

You're right, you talked about a single for "Prove It" coming out. I assumed a video, and if I'm wrong I apologize.

When/where did you hear me discuss Prove It? I was about to give you props for being "in tune" with me. Vibing like me and my real homies do. But you already knew about Prove It! sweet!

In your Twitter feed. You tell fans they can win a copy of the single. So just now, that's how I heard about "Prove It." From you. You've recorded a song for the IAS and one for CCHR. Is Narconon next? Applied Scholastics? Scientology itself? Which is "Prove It" for?

Hahaha, you'll have to wait and see. Right now it looks like it's time for me. I seem to be the one having to "prove" something. I may do one for Youth for Human Rights. I may do one for the local Symphony. Who knows what I might do next. Don't waste time trying to guess.

Ah yes, Youth for Human Rights. That makes sense. "Human Rights" is the big push now. That's a good look for you. I see that. My favorite line from IAS was "Psychiatry and SPs you know we take 'em down." Did they explain to you what an "SP" was? I know you're proud of that IAS video. How about letting me see it? My readers liked the "Define Better" video. Let the world see IAS, man.

Contact the IAS or go watch it on one of their television thingys. As far as games? You're playing games. I'm being real. Since WWP is intent on "ruining my career" let them find it. They've investigated this far with inaccurate information or results.

The IAS won't show me anything. You can't show it to me, can you. They own it. And they decide who sees the IAS video. Right? I'm not the WWP. I didn't go look up your kids. I looked up your videos. I showed "Define Better." And I want to show IAS.

Yeah, but you have the Voice to say that aint cool. It's not necessary and it's not cool. I don't include you in their "group." That's why I'm even responding. But since I know what they are about I believe they are using you to smear me. I'm not interested. Thank you. Why would they [the IAS] be reluctant to let you watch it? Why is it such a big deal? I respect all religions. I was talking about sharing in person. I do not own the rights to promote it with out their knowledge or consent. I could play it before friends.

I would love to see it with you in person, are you kidding me? When are you going to be in NYC? You travel a lot.

I don't know. Maybe soon. No disrespect, If I did do an interview in NY I would prefer my friend Sway or Davey D. No disrespect.

Oh, I don't care if you do other interviews in NYC. That's fine. I just want to get to know you, if you have the time. The IAS song itself is cool. The video they made in Copenhagen, however, wasn't cool. Were you disappointed to see it made fun of so much?

I have no comment on the video from Copenhagen. If anything I would be flattered. Honored that someone would be inspired to use my song.

I asked earlier if you knew what an "SP" was when you put that in the IAS song. It stands for "suppressive person." Did they explain that? Have you performed for David Miscavige yet? Have you met him? Tom Cruise?

Of course I know what an SP is. You think I say shit I don't know what I'm talking about? I'm not a chump like some think!

So you've had some Scientology training? You've taken some classes? Have you been audited? Using the e-meter?

I simply can not deny or confirm your questions. I don't know your intent but according to your page you're going for a religious slant. Are you asking me or telling me? You are making assumptive statements but punctuating them with question marks. This leaves me confused.

Chill, your song "IAS" was made for, and was funded by, a religious organization. I can't avoid questions about a religious org, can I? No, I'm asking sincere questions. I don't know if you've had training. I'm just asking. You knew what SP was, so you may have training.

You're an independent thinker, right? You can avoid whatever you wish to avoid. Same as me. You want to know about it go to their place. They have one in NY. Push the buttons on the little displays and it plays on a loop. Ask question with them about Scientology. I'm not well versed enough to discuss it fairly. I tell people to go see for themselves. But yeah, WWP gave me so much information. I made my mind to find out more. So yes, I have the basic books and I've read one. Big deal, huh?!

OK, the Basics, cool. Was it Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health? That's the main, starting book. Were you surprised to see the photos from your video shoot at WWP? How did people at Golden Era react? [Golden Era Productions, Scientology's filming facilities, which appears to have made the "Dauntless, Defiant, and Resolute" video.]

I don't know. They probably don't care. They expect it and predicted it. Personally I don't care. I think it's a bit odd. Had they paid attention to their own blog and compared the pictures they took from my page with the video parody of my song they should have known that they are not the same images. Yet they are promoting some "cover up" theory. Like I'm trying to hide something. It's really odd.

How about a rhyme or two from "Prove It"? Lay it on me.

Naw. No lyrics yet. Let me figure out a release date. If you are sincere as you say I will get you a copy first.

Excellent! I would love to introduce "Prove It" to the world, whatever it's about. I saw photos of you performing on a roof somewhere, and there was a tent out on some hills, and then the guys with guns. All for IAS vid?

The Way to Happiness. What's your history with Scientology? You sound just as knowledgeable as I am on the subject.

I've been reporting on Scientology since 1995. It's a very complex subject. I have sources all around the world. I enjoy it a lot. So there's a Way to Happiness song and video too? Hey, I want to see that! Same deal, I have to get it from them?

Have you read it yet? How about Dianetics. I don't know the order but everyone says do Dianetics first. You should call them and introduce yourself. No Way to Happiness song but that's a great idea! Didn't even think of that!

I had lunch at the Hollywood Celebrity Centre, actually. With Karin Pouw. Do you know her?

So that's why you said they wouldn't share anything with you? I get it. Well, sorry I don't know answers to your real questions. Don't think I know her. Cool.

See, I gave you an idea for a song. So what's the event in Joburg? Another building opening up?

Photos on the roof. Yellow tents/IAS vid? I can not deny or confirm.

Yeah, yea. I know, you know nothing. But hey, you're touring all over the world, that has to be cool. Are you enjoying it?

You have sources around the world. Don't you have some in Johannesburg? What did they say it was? What was their feedback?

No, I have no sources in Joburg. Yet. I only know you're there because you said so, on your Twitter. Is it nice there today?

No, what's funny is I am nothing yet I'm traveling around the world. People enjoy it yet your readers/my critics say I lack talent. LOL. I don't know. I heard it was storming.

I never said you weren't talented. What interests me is you record Scientology songs and travel for Scientology. I want to know about it.

I was not suggesting you said it. It's been said by some of your sources. How did you even hear about me? WWP, right. OpenComments?

OpenComments? Is that someone at WWP? Never heard of it. I actually first heard about "Define Better" from one of my many sources. Months ago. Then Thursday night, two of my regular sources (not WWP) alerted me to the Copenhagen vid, and I jumped on it before anyone else.

Yup, and he already threatened me that he would "ruin" my career. I read somewhere related to this blog something from WWP. You say I "record Scientology songs." Fact is I recorded 1 Scientology song [the IAS song]. Y'all Busted, Define Better, and Prove It! are contemporary.

Fair enough. Did Golden Era produce "Define Better"? Looks awfully expensive. I mean, "Define Better" is a slick video, but that CCHR link suggests that they were helping pay for it? Just asking. Storming? Well here it's dark. And almost 4 am. I gotta get some shut eye. I have a ton of work tomorrow before Thanksgiving.

Yeah me too. I've been traveling for the past day and a half. Take care. Sleep well.

You too. It was good talking to you. And I still want to see that IAS video. Some day, I hope. Later. Passing out now. If you want to answer one of those final questions, cool. If not, that's cool too. Gotta sleep. Thanks for the chat, Chill.

Thank you. I can not deny or confirm your question. Thank you, I'm glad you like Define Better. CCHR is helping promote on their page. You don't have to be religious to be a part of CCHR.

Aight, good night/morning.

Hey Chill, embarrassed much about being a scientologist and making it known publicly? Take the hint and get out while you can.

Chill EB, As insta-cred the idea that someone wants to silence your styles might be, you really need to think about these anti-psych things you're saying, look them up with proper sourcing instead of solely scientology stuff before you flap your gums again.

Even if your rant was completely correct, some kid with no safety net might one day be bullied by other kids into thinking they're a monster or pussy for taking medication. Congratulations, you just released a kid with moonbats/thetans/spaceghosts that are really harming them into the wild with absolutely no protection.

OTVIIIisGrrr8!
OTVIIIisGrrr8!

We at OSA Int did not authorize Chill EB to speak to the rabid Tony Ortega. Like Billy Sheehan talking to Anonymous at the first protest, Chill EB acted on his own.

This is massively out KSW and grossly out ethics.

The disastrous results of Chill EB directly talking to the SP psych-implanter Tony Ortega shows what can happen without professional OSA PR help. Had Chill EB asked us, we at OSA Int would have gladly had Tommy Davis be present for the interview in order to properly gag and muzzle Chill EB. Tommy Davis would have given Tony Ortega COB's official positions.

As it occurred, Chill EB offered his own psychotic originations. Worse, Chill EB evaded a key question and did not say: "Goddamn right I am a Scientologist!" Chill EB additionally failed to offer the key COB message that Tom Cruise gave to Rolling Stone: "Some people, well, if they don't like Scientology well, then, fuck you. Really. Fuck you. Period."

We will handle Chill EB as the ethics particle he has now become. A few hundred hours in a too-gruesome, face-ripping OSA Int sec check will give Chill EB the SRA he needs at this point in his Scientology career. We will discover his crimes and Ev Purps.

Quite unlike Chill EB, the Jive Aces are Sea Org members and follow OSA orders when on tour. The Jive Aces sent us write ups for many years on private talks they had with  their friend Van Morrison. We wanted to recruit Van Morrison back into Scientology but he proved to be so overwhelmed by the problems of celebrity that he chose to hide instead in a recording studio and make hit music instead of Clearing the Planet.

Chill EB needs to know that a Scientologist is either in or he is out. A Scientologist cannot be a spectator or a dilettante. It is not enough for Chill EB to say that he hates Psychiatry in a song. Chill EB must be on the battle lines actually working to destroy Psychiatry.

Chill EB has to do more than pay lip service to Scientology, for Scientology is Man's only hope.

Chill EB needs to BE a Scientologist.

Chill EB needs to DO what a Scientologist must do by fomenting more and more pure, raw hatred against Psychiatrists and Psychiatry. Chill EB does not hate Psychiatrists and Psychiatry enough for us at OSA Int. He has instead collapsed into a delirium of reasonableness.

Chill EB needs to HAVE what a Scientologist can have and this is to have IAS Patron Grandiosity status by donating ten million dollars to IAS as part of his amends for talking to the degraded being Tony Ortega.

I just listened to Chill's shrink rap "Y'all Busted." (Both live cult version and  music video.) Outside of the space cult, I just don't think the audience for such a tune here on prison planet Teegeeack is going to be very large.

Also, although I'm no rap connoisseur, I've gotta say that is one forgettable piece of ca-ca. "Define Better" is a masterpiece in comparison.

Is it supposed to draw children into psych-hatred or paranoia? Is it supposed to make Sciloontology cool? Was it a big hit on another planet in the galactic federation, maybe one where all the creatures are deaf? For me, it is kind of like hearing a song about prostate cancer. Couldn't be worse, unless they made it into a musical.

Hey Chill.. I heard the sad news about your ex-wife, Yvette Watt Tucker, (the mother of your children) being diagnosed with breast cancer last month.  Cancer is no laughing matter. I'm curious what you are doing to help Yvette through this dilemna. There is plenty of documented evidence on the large number of Scientologists who succumbed to cancer because they believed that cult tech & lots of vitamins could cure them.  Please don't let Yvette become another cult statistic.

Whatever happened to 'Talk to anyone about anything'??

I admit, I'd be leary of admitting to people that I'm a Scientologist, but, hey, I'm *not*.  Why does Chill think he has to be so cagey about it?   Admittedly, even Louis Farrakhan is hesitiant to let on how thoroughly he's sold out his 'Nation of Islam' to the Cult, but, maybe Chill doesn't know about that yet...

Wait, wait. He thought a guy was from Anonymous and made a rap because of his dissing? There was a Scientology rap battle of sorts with anonymous? Tony, why the HELL is that not the headline, what is WRONG with you haha? Kidding, but good God damn I want to see loons in v masks going all 8 mile now with a rebuttal. Do it you freaks, I'll get the popcorn!

Chill EB, Scientology aside seems like a cool, genuine guy though and the commenters were ridiculously antagonistic looking at the other article.

Hey Vanessa Records RIP. I made What's the Matter With You Hat under the name Pink Munky!!! My pal Karl did the video. I always get a Sally Field moment when someone references it! I did another one you might like up on Vimeo http://vimeo.com/1227000Peace! Chill, I think you have talent and smarts, but know this, much smarter people than you or I have been sucked into this cult. Stay frosty . . .

The rapper has been drilled by OSA (whether he knows it or not) on how to handle media. He's semi-slick, and very much a Scientologist. Don't expect any straight answers.

This has certainly got the cult riled up.  Perhaps they're afraid that Chill will find out the truth about Hubbard, Miscavige and the big, fat global scam posing as a religion and blow.

Funny, I can’t use MY real name because of these ANONYMOUS guys. This good bunch is so busy trying to take down cults like Facebook, The NYSE and religion, that they seem to overlook the trampling of the rights of freedom they’re all so anxious to protect.  So, I usually never comment on this blog because its so ridiculously one sided but in this case I couldn't hold back. I had to give props to an artist, now in danger because of a song! So VanessaRecordsRIP, although you may mean well, it appears that you skipped the part where he is clearly afraid of the very commentators on this blog.

"Delirium of reasonableness" (LOL) sounds like a lower condition that the donation formula of $10M should help him work out of, Xenu willing.

I hope if Chill EB does another one - though I really hope he wises up and realised what a turd in the punchbowl scilon rap is to his credibility - its about Sea Org, rapping over YMCA's "In the navy". The video can be slow mo clips of Squirrel Busters in that little pedal boat.

It's a rap song that makes kids who have to take medicines feel like they're zombies.

Nice going Chill EB. You actually use the word "zombies".

Way to make little kids feel even worse about themselves.

You suck. The only reason you're doing this crap is because the scientologists believe psych medicines are an alien masterplan. Read all about the Xenu alien stuff. It's what they believe.

Wake the fuck up brother. You're being used.

Don't be so god damn creepy man. You're not helping him see how silly Scilontology is. You're not ruining his career (he hasn't got one) and its not saving people from his ludicrous propaganda. If kids are throwing out their medicine because of a hip-hop video on MTV, then by all means get aggressive with him. That's not happening.

Trolling doesn't have to mean making someone squirm in their seat, you can milk a lolcow you know?

Chill EB claims to have done the "We Are The IAS" video in response to being attacked online.

Except this is a lie - he recorded that way before anyone outside of Co$ had even heard of him.

You know he's definitely a $cientologist now - because he is lying out of his ass.

Tommy Davis will play the part of the Turkey. Katie Holms wont eat anything, DM will slap the turkey around as everyone else plays musical chair to one of Chilles songs. Tom Cruise will get confused about the chairs and start jumping up and down on a couch while repeating GLIB GILB GILB. A typical Scientology holiday.

Tom will help Chill EB plan his own video, and really own it:

...but if that’s what Mr. Chill EB has rapped to this world, there still remains one more word on the man. Call it Chill EB on, Chill EB WTF is a Scientologist?

Chill E.B. wrote a song called "Dauntless, Defiant, Resolute" promoting IAS, the most ruthless money sucking branch of Scientology, and then doesn't have the nerve to come out as a Scientologist. This is quite typical of clam PR actually: An attempt to appear brave and successful that doesn't translate stand up to the lightest scrutiny. If Chill E.B. doesn't like being in the spotlight, he made a mistake publicly aligning himself with Scientology.

Wrong song, but it is the only V people song I know...

The-tan there's no need to feel down. I said, The-tan, pick yourself off the ground. I said, The-tan, 'cause you're in a new town There's no need to be unhappy.

The-tan, there's a place you can go. I said, The-tan, when you've blown all your dough. You can stay there, and I'm sure you will find Many ways to have a good time.

It's fun to stay at the R--PF. It's fun to stay at the R--PF.

They have everything that you need to enjoy, You can move lots of rocks with ecclesiastical boys ...

It's fun to stay at the R--PF. It's fun to stay at the R--PF.

My nephew was heart broken when he watched that video. My bad for letting him watch it. :-(

If it wasn't for his ADHD meds, he would have been pulled out of school and placed in a special Ed school/class. Thats how bad his situation was.

After my nephew was diagnosed. The debate to medicate or not medicate almost tore our family apart.

We tried other alternatives like changing his diet (no sugar) herbs, vitamins.

His mom even talked to a groupcalled ACT. They were passing out literature and dvds at some event she was attending. They hounded her for an hour about the evils of Psychiatric drugs, making her feel like a terrible mother.

Anyway, my nephew isn't a zombie like Chill EB states in his rap video.

He has a very funny sense of humour, highly intelligent, loving, a unique ability to hyperfocus, creative, determined, honest, and an enormous love for animals, space and nature.

The world is truly a better place because he's in it. :-)

The success with his medication is the beginning of his story, not the end of his story.

Expressing empathy for someone with cancer is hardly trolling, Mr. Head-Up-Ass.  Google Scientology+cancer.  If Chill & his family relies on the cult for treating the problem, then they can expect a funeral real soon, Just saying.

Hey RP  didn't Chilli E Beans swear up and down to YOU he had nothing to do with Scientology when you questioned him on it months ago?

Chilli's Agent/Management Team are all Clams and all her clients are clams and their friend are clams and so on....Seems Chilli E Beans has hitched a ride on the "Scientology Hamster wheel of Death"Recording at Scientology's MadHatter Recording Studios,Golden Era Productions Video Shoots-Clam Agents-Gigs at every Scientology Org opening and Graduation event.the olnt think he didn't do was MC at the ribbon cutting for Kirstie Alleys Orgasmic Lemurs.

for a Guy they wants to pretend its all WWP's fault... he sure does love to ride the "Happy Fun Club Roller Coaster" at Hubbardville Amusement park!

I'm imagining some awful macroni and glue face of L. Ron. as the centrepiece on the table. DM would toss it into the trash it and John Travolta would run out of the house crying because he worked so hard on it.

"Chill E.B. doesn't like being in the spotlight, he made a mistake publicly aligning himself with Scientology." I really don't understand this. Why would you say something like this? Are you so hurt and angry that you would see this as normal thinking? Someone who doesn't want to be ostracized should not attempt to do what they love for a cause that they believe in? There was a time when Christians were not accepted. You may not like the fact that Scientology is practiced but why can't other people practice according to their faith? This whole thing is very sad.

Who would have thought SPs like you have talents like this, you'd have thought you'd have to fork out a few hundred thou for a go on Clearwater Space Camp's spinnymajig ride to develop superpowers like this. But here we are!

Your nastiness is that off the charts I'm whiteknighting a god damn scientology hip-hop artist who just made a rap that had me in stitches. You're sucking the fun out of it and being nasty about someone having cancer with your creepy "john jones who I know has children" crap. There is every call for you to bring attention to what you did, but not as an oddball making a passive-agressive zinger on the internet.

Can I say that again? I'm whiteknighting a god damn scientology hip-hop artist

So empathy would be to ignore reality? I do don't want to see anyone ti die from cancer but this is a very real possibility if Yevette & Chill is following the tech. Again it is important to get Chill to see real world examples  close to him of Scientology victims. I for one still have to wonder if Jett Travolta would still be alive if his dad had him on his medication. I guess the empathetic thing to do is not care, that is what the Scientoligest do.

You are not expressing empathy at all, it reads like pointed sympathy for anyone who is misfortunate enough to be near this person in your eyes, and most importantly you're talking to everyone else and not really him, waving your arms and using full names and clarification like an SEO dick. You're jeering doxxing crap through bared teeth. If I've misread what you meant, its because you really need to brush up on your social skills, but its not the case.

However, having listened to the song and thought about it, I do now think that it is poisonous as hell and will make another post.

He's about as dauntless, defiant and resolute as the 100 or so Scientologists who fled in terror at the sight of AGP during the (hilarious) horse episode in L.A.  It took exactly one SP to send them scurrying back into their building.  Even the horse looked ashamed.

I noticed you didn't bother addressinganything I wrote. Do you care to address the blatant contrast ofreleasing a song called "Dauntless, Defiant, Resolute,"then showing none of the above when repeatedly pressed for aninterview? He even had the following lyrics in his song:

We ain't never gonna back down, leavetown, play the clown. Phychiatry and SPs you know wetake 'em down. 

How does backing down from an interviewhe offered become something other than backing down? Do the SPson this blog appear to have been "taken down?"

I noticed you're pushing the religiouscloak by calling Scientology a "faith" and comparingyourselves to early Christians. That doesn't work on SPs becausewe're well aware of the fraudulent  way Scientology obtainedlegal recognition in the US.

Larry Brennan explains below:

“8. It was determined that the onlyway to handle many of the legal matters in front of us

and still apply Hubbard’s policiesthat had to do with staff, ethics, sales of services,

money, delivery of services and thelike was to develop and use a religious cloaking

saying scientology was a religion, itsservices religious, its staff members of religious

orders and the like. I can statewithout doubt that the overwhelming main reason that

organized scientology developed andpushed its religious cloaking was to avoid a myriad

of real or potential legal problemsthat would exist by following Hubbard’s policies if it

were not considered a religion.”

Besides, we both know L Ron Hubbardtold you not to accept anything on faith.

As for the publicity surrounding ChillEB, it seems odd that a publicity adverse individual would choose acareer as a rapper, and odder still that he would align himself withan organization as controversial as Scientology. It sounds morelikely that he just wants to escape the scandal surrounding hishypocrisy.

While he's free to believe inScientology or anything else, we have a right to protest adestructive cult that ruthlessly exploits people, abuses the legalsystem, harasses its detractors and anyone who dares practiceScientology outside the official “church.”
