25% of Scientology’s STAND League Hate Bloggers Are Unverifiable Online; Are They Real People?

STAND League members are Scientologists. As such they consider themselves part of the Scientology Master Race. This Master Race ideology is one of the core elements in categorizing STAND League members as part of an organized hate group.

The initial purpose of Scientology’s STAND League was to launch online psycho-terrorist Fair Game operations against the guests who appeared on Leah’s double Emmy-winning show Scientology and the Aftermath.

These psycho-terrorist operations were retaliatory in nature for these guests having spoken out about their horrific experiences in the Church of Scientology.

STAND League has since become a social media hate platform to conduct the same psycho-terrorist operations against those persons targeted for attack by Scientology. STAND League engages in lies, slander, defamation, and character assassination.

L. Ron Hubbard’s Fair Game focuses on “manufacturing evidence” and “effectively outflowing false data.” These are Cult-speak terms for lying. The Church of Scientology lies as the central principle of its own existence — and STAND League reflects the intrinsic nature of Scientology.

By using widely accepted definitions, we classify STAND League members as constituting an organized hate group:

The Southern Poverty Law Center defines a hate group as an organization or collection of individuals that – based on its official statements or principles, the statements of its leaders, or its activities – has beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics

Based upon orders from the Church of Scientology International, STAND League members conduct online Fair Game operations against an entire class of people Scientology deems Suppressive Persons. In L. Ron Hubbard’s ideology, Suppressive Persons have immutable characteristics which place them below 2.0 on Scientology’s Tone Scale.

L. Ron Hubbard called for a genocide against all persons 2.0 and below on Scientology’s Tone Scale. In Scientology’s worldview, all SP’s should be “disposed of quietly and without sorrow” as Hubbard phrased it.

Like all Scientologists, STAND League members consider they are part of a Scientology Master Race called Homo Novis. STAND League members embrace the genocidal and Master Race ideology of Scientology.

STAND League members are radicalized Scientology zealots. For these reasons, we archive STAND League’s postings and maintain an index of its past and present members. Under certain conditions, we make all, or part, of this data available to government agencies, law enforcement, attorneys, and investigators.


In 2018 and 2019, many critics — including we at the Scientology Money Project — documented the STAND League engaging in a massive social media fraud in which it used stock photos and claimed these images were real Scientologists. Why did Scientology engage in such an obvious fraud that made David Miscavige look like an incompetent fool? Was STAND desperate to inflate its membership or was there a more serious reason?

We consider the possibility that Scientology may have needed to protect its actual members from potential civil and criminal liability arising from STAND League’s malicious online activities.

As STAND members are an organized group that engages in online harassment and psychoterrorism, its members are open to being named in civil and criminal actions. The Scientology Squirrel Busters were an organized hate group. Several Scientology Squirrel Busters were named as individuals in the Rathbun v. Miscavige lawsuit. OSA may have had this in mind when it used stock photos.


REAL OR FAKE STAND LEAGUE MEMBERS?

Individual Scientologists are generally very easy to find online as they post on social media. The Church of Scientology also puts the names and photos of its members into the public domain when it mails its various magazines out to the tens of thousands of people who have done even one course in Scientology.

Statistician and Scientology critic Kristi Wachter has worked tirelessly since the 1990’s compiling lists of Scientologists the Church publishes in its various magazines. Wachter publishes these names at her outstanding website The Truth About Scientology.

All one need do to find a Scientologist is to type their name into the search bar at Wachter’s website. The website provides the first published date of a given Scientologist’s course completion and all of their subsequently published course completions and Bridge progress.


Using Kristi Wachter’s website, Google, Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites, we reviewed STAND League’s latest online roster of 44 active hate bloggers.

Our research found that 25% of these Scientologists were not independently verifiable online. The only place these people can be found is at the STAND League website.

Are these people real Scientologists or are they fake? We are asking our readers for help in identifying these purported Scientologists. We are doing this as part of our work in maintaining and updating our database of STAND League members.

The list of 44 currently active STAND League hate bloggers is listed below. A link to Kristi Wachter’s site is provided for those Scientologists whose identity we can verify and confirm:

  1. We are unable to contact any of these purported Scientologists as they have no online presence, no e-mails, and no means of contacting them.

    We did find a Carole Gournet online. However, she died in Paris in 2010.
