[Scientology Freedom Medal Award winner Tony Muhammad]



The Underground Bunker recently received a notice from YouTube that one of our videos has been taken down without recourse. We were informed that this removal will not count against us as a “strike,” but our video did not meet YouTube’s “community standards” and so it has gone poof [...]

On Sunday, Mike Rinder posed a great question about the ongoing relationship between Scientology (which pretends it’s a force for human rights) and the Nation of Islam, a black nationalist movement whose leader, Louis Farrakhan, isn’t shy about demonizing whites and Jewish people.

He called them “merchants of chaos” and created voluminous policies detailing how to fool reporters, how to “double curve” their attempts to expose Scientology, and essentially how to destroy their careers and ruin their lives.

He spent almost 20 [...]

[Hubbard and his Rhodesian staff]

South Africa is a country of extraordinary contrasts: Fertile savannahs and teeming cities, immense wealth and terrible poverty, multiracial idealism and ethnic violence. It’s also a place of striking contrasts in Scientology’s history. In the past few weeks, I’ve been traveling in this vast country and consulting state archives to piece [...]

 Scientology is moving towards modern communications technology. We have seen how they use Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social media to communicate with non-staff members (known as “publics”) and to spread PR messages.

Now Scientology is working with two chat applications to improve internal communication and also to spread their message into countries they have [...]

 We get a lot of inquiries about Scientology here at the Bunker, but this one was different from any that we’d previously received. It’s a delicate situation, and rather than make our own suggestions, we proposed presenting this reader’s questions to our commenting community for feedback. He agreed to that idea.

Scientology opened the Malmö Ideal Org in 2009. It’s really in the municipality of Arlöv, north of the city and an odd choice for the first Swedish Ideal [...]

Labour peer Lord Janner of Braunstone is a “serial child abuser” who “violated, raped and tortured” children in the Houses of Parliament, an MP has said.



Simon Danczuk, the Labour MP for Rochdale, said he was appalled that the Crown Prosecution Service had not allowed the allegations against Lord Janner to be heard in court.
