In early 2008 Anonymous left its collective mom’s basement at the start of Project Chanology. Chanology was a massive collective effort seeking to hand deliver barrels of fuck you to Church of Scientology centers around the world for daring to infringe on the universal right of laughing at Tom Cruise being a nutjob.
In in the early months of Chanology, New York City Anons were routinely met with Scientology’s historically creepy extra-legal harassment tactics as well as a self-perpetuated facade of intimidation. Anons were regularly followed home, received bogus legal letters, and Scientology buildings were lined with fat fake mafioso private investigators all in the name of promoting fear. Clearly these Scientology morons had never been on the internet.
The NYC Anon crew doesn’t take kindly to abusive fuckwits trying to victimize their critics, so we collectively decided to make Scientology the victim. All private investigators and security personal were personally lampooned in the meanest, funniest, most personal ways possible. Within just a few months the P.I.’s had not-so-mysteriously vanished and had been replaced with Scientology cult drones, who were subjected to exactly the same treatment… until they also left. Unsatisfied with leaving their building unadorned with idiots to buffer against our hilarious barbs, Scientology attempted to hide their flock of dumbasses with a wall of potted plants.
What the Church of Scientology NY did not take into account is that they’re inept morons who need diagrams near their pants so they don’t choke to death trying to get dressed. Their plants all died within just a couple of months of their negligent non-care. For several years the CoS grimaced every time NYC Anon would arrive at their doorstep, once a month like a menstrual cycle that criticized their bad hair. They no longer had protection from us, the people they once sought to intimidate. That is until a Scientology Rhodes Scholar accidentally figured they could rent a truck and park it in front of their moronatorium so they would no longer have to look at the outside world.
Month after month NYC Anon would see a rented truck parked outside the Scientology center. We did not feel defeated, but we knew that the culty lunatics inside had felt they had won in a small way. In June of 2012 we decided to get our own truck and beat them to the punch.
Not only did we manage to park so our raid was in full view of all 12 of the same members walking in and out of the Scientology building to make it look busier, but our truck also proudly displayed everything the higher ups wouldn’t want their members to see. Top secret alien beliefs (that Xenu shit) was posted largely on the side, informational fliers were readily available, and best of all, a large picture of us was positioned right outside their door so they had to see our happy smiling faces.
For those keeping track: Scientology once tried to make us fear for our safety by using P.I.’s and harassment. In just a few short years they are now desperately trying to hide from us. Who’s the victim now?
