L. Ron Hubbard’s Great Grandson Speaks Out

Jamie DeWolf is the great-grandson of L. Ron Hubbard. This is an amazing bit of spoken word about his family history, including how his grandfather was stalked and abused by Hubbard because he left the church and how he had to change his name to escape the destructive legacy. This is incredibly powerful.

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    Wow that is powerful. What a sick twisted fuck L Ron Hubbard Sr. was. Given that Scientology is just flush with cash, even though it is short on membership, it shows that you can get away with virtually anything in the name of religion in America if you play your cards right.

    It also once again falsifies the claim that religions have to be explained by supernatural events. Religions are better explained by charismatic individuals, propaganda and fear and intimidation tactics to bully followers in to keeping with the religion, or keeping their mouth shut if they choose to leave.

    “This is incredibly powerful.”

    That line is incredibly understated. This needs to be seen by anyone even tempted by Scientology.

    Clearly his Thetans are all out of whack. When was the last time he took an electropsychometer test? I’ll just leave these helpful Scientology pamphlets here. Peruse them at your leisure.

    I watched that a while back. It was on the Moth Radio Hour, IIRC.

    L. Ron Hubbard was piece-of-shit’s, piece-of-shit.

    Agreed. Powerful.

    L. Ron Hubbard was piece-of-shit’s, piece-of-shit.

    I thought the pieces of shit wouldn’t let him join their union. He had to fight the IRS to get recognized as a religion because the established religions thought he was a crackpot. Nyuk-nyuk!

    Once on the SGU, c, 2007, James Randi said that he met L Ron twice, and L Ron was drunk both times. Wouldn’t surprise me.

    A drunk author? The hell you say!

    The Scientologists have a centre in London, on Tottenham Court Road. Usually I pass by on the other side if it’s open, but on one occasion I was on the same side as the centre, and two of their minions approached me. They had scarcely had time to offer me a “personality test” when a genuine moment of inspiration struck, and I regaled them with the following, sung to the tune of “John Brown’s Body”:

    L. Ron Hubbard was a liar and a fraud,

    L. Ron Hubbard was a liar and a fraud,

    L. Ron Hubbard was a liar and a fraud,

    And the fraud is still going on!

    - pointing an index finger at each of the two during the last line. One of the pair, with what intent I’ve no idea, tried to join in, but was quickly shushed by his co-liar, and they retreated in confusion, while I went on my way.

    So what the heck is with the scientology tattoos then? Is this some meta-hipster-irony thing I’m too mainstream to get?

    I used to live near their old LA headquarters, and had some business dealings with them. For about 15 years I wouldn’t even write the word “Scientology” on the internet.
