Marty Rathbun, the Criminal Squirrel

I suppose it was only a matter of time before Marty Rathbun announced to the world that he was engaged in implanting.

We’ve known for a while that Rathbun has been using hypnosis and brainwashing techniques on his cult following, ranging from friendly but firm “reality adjustments” on the fishing boat, to prescribed participation in internet natter, to squirrel “auditing” sessions in which any natterer’s withholds are ignored and motivators are validated. And he’s researched and applied “Black Dianetics” techniques and believes he’s applying them more covertly than anyone before him, all behind the traitor’s cloak of helping his prey move “a little higher.”

It’s been proven time and again that what LRH says about the Criminal Mind applies in spades to Marty Rathbun:


In Rathbun’s latest effort in his campaign of Black PR against Scientology and LRH, he’s now attacking OTs. With a single stroke, Rathbun clearly, wrongly, and not so covertly indicates that all OT’s made in the last decade are invalid. And of course, Marty would have all believe that he’s the only one who can set them straight. Marty’s been studying the psychs well.
(“Come down off that Bridge,” Rathbun says, “and sit here in my ‘auditing’ chair – I’m on a quest to salvage the subject.”)

Not hampered by all that burdensome “training” in such things, Rathbun gives us a generality-laden rundown as to how it’s all wrong – REVERSED in fact! (No surprise that Rathbun would consider the making of OT’s a “reverse” use of Scientology. Marty thinks withhold-pulling is a “reverse” use of the comm cycle.)

Using his own “hidden understanding line” with Source, and the critical meanderings of a “couple of dozen” people who have failed to make it on the levels and since blown, Marty combines these misunderstoods and failures into a spectacularly general eval (with hints that it’s not general, but “confidential”) that accuses others of IMPLANTING.

(I’m wagering that Rathbun’s implants have to do with hating and destroying Scientology and the Church.)

Once again, Rathbun ignores the overwhelming number of excellent products coming off the OT lines, and tries to make the failed and disaffected ones sound like “everybody.”

And once again, methinks thou dost protest too much, Marty.

But we expected this, since Rathbun seems to be going down a checklist, a script if you will, of how to be a criminal squirrel and attack that which genuinely helps, step by step.

Why would Rathbun proceed to the “invalidate/attack OTs” item on his checklist? Well, for one thing, lots of glowing, real OTs are coming off the line. More than ever, in fact.

LRH tells us

“But when it gets to Clears and OT levels, psychos go berserk!
They are, it happens, terrified of punishment for their own crimes.
The thought of someone being sensible or powerful enough to punish them (the way they would do) is more than they can stand.
You can, with utmost certainty, identify a criminal psychotic by the way he vilifies or degrades or seeks to stop Clears and OTs from coming into existence.
It is lost on him that immorality and crime in others stems from the very things he is doing to them…
Recognize them for what they are – psychotic criminals – and handle them accordingly.
Don’t let them stop Man from going free.”

It’s not pleasant to watch the sad devolution of Marty Rathbun from a mere criminal squirrel into the beingness of a true psych and implanter.
