Monique Rathbun had a lawsuit going against Scientology for almost three years – subjecting her family to the same kind of abuse that Ortega reported about today. That’s on top of the abuse she and her family suffered from the “Squirrel Busters” for years previous to that.
And who knows what other Scientology Fair Game Monique and her family experienced, day to day, that never got reported?
And yet Tony Ortega said, very specifically, that Monique dropped her lawsuit when she was “about to win it” and that it was “costing her nothing” to keep suing the Church of Scientology.
Does it ever cost nothing to sue the Church of Scientology?
Too many of Tony’s marauding Bunkerites fell right in line with him.
Too few voices on the Post-Scientology Internet – except those who have actually sued Scientology – questioned Ortega’s reasoning about the idea that there is “no cost” to suing Scientology for 3 years – even if you are suing them on contingency.
Have even one of those Bunkerites taken Tony’s post from today and applied it to a better understanding of Monique’s legal actions back in April?
I doubt it.
That would go against the Bunkerite tribal narrative on Marty Rathbun and his family.
And we all know that one must never go against the Bunkerite tribal narrative.
You think you know someone from having read about them on the Internet. You feel so certain that you can weigh-in with the worst, most disparaging character assassinations – because the Internet makes you feel like you know enough to do so. You feel like you are informed. You feel like your opinion is an informed one.
Even when your opinion is not informed at all.
Yet all you need to do is click “SUBMIT” to spew your nasty sauce onto who ever you want.
In this way, the Internet can bring out the worst in anyone.
After he wrote his post today about what another litigant is experiencing while she is suing the Church of Scientology, shouldn’t Tony Ortega know enough to apologize to Monique Rathbun for the trouble he’s caused her for dropping her own lawsuit against Scientology?
I think he should.
