Prager University Spokesperson & Scientologist Joy Villa Calls the Nation of Islam Ignorant & Ungrateful


Prager University has appointed Scientologist Joy Villa to be its latest spokesperson. Joy Villa also serves as a salesperson for Scientology’s e-meters.

In a Prager University YouTube video, Joy Villa attacks those who take the knee during the US national anthem as ignorant and ungrateful:


Joy Villa speaking in the Prager University video:

In America, where you are free to sit or stand during the national anthem, sitting when you should be standing is more a statement about you than about America.

You come off, frankly, as ignorant and ungrateful: ignorant about a country that works to correct its faults, and ungrateful for the opportunity and freedom that it offers all its citizens.

For that, I’m standing.

I’m Joy Villa for Prager University.

In 2016, Scientologist and Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan stated that the Nation was 100% behind Colin Kaepernick’s taking a knee for the national anthem:

For Joy Villa and Prager University to insult Mr. Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam, or anyone else for that matter, as being “ignorant” and “ungrateful” on their right to take a knee during the national anthem is hateful and bigoted. However, it is hardly surprising as Joy Villa is a hypocrite and an opportunist who has suddenly reinvented herself as a devout Republican. She will say whatever Dennis Prager and her new Republican friends want her to say.

As Vinnie James discovered and announced to his Twitter following, Joy Villa purged her Twitter account of all mentions of Scientology after she realized that the horrednous reputation of Scientology could be a problem amongst her newfound ultraconservative Republican friends.

What is very telling is that Joy Villa has pictures on her Twitter feed from her dominatrix days whereas she has scrubbed every mention of Scientology:


Joy Villa is a Scientologist and she is lying about it. She preaches Jesus on Twitter while she sells Scientology e-meters and promotes Scientology in Scientology’s magazines.

Bottom line: Christianity and Scientology are antithetical. Joy Villa knows this and yet she lies about it. However, as Christianity sells well to Republicans then Joy Villa will be a Christian if that is what her new audience wants to hear. What her new audience also wants to hear is that only ignorant ingrates would refuse to stand during the national anthem.

My position on the national anthem at sporting events is simple: Professional sports is a for-profit commercial enterprise. Why should any business require its customers and employees to stand for the national anthem? Is this even legal? When you buy a car, go shopping, or take a commercial flight on an airplane you are not required to stand for the national anthem. In my view, professional sports should discontinue the use of the national anthem at the beginning of the games. The same applies to NASCAR and all other professional sports.

Professional sports teams and their leagues are money-making businesses that are like any other business: They work to make the maximum amount of money and pay the minimum amount in taxes. This is why food, drink, and parking is so damned overpriced at sporting events. The NFL charges top dollar for its licensed merchandise. So what does the NFL’s profitability have to do with the national anthem? Nothing at all. The national anthem is just NFL marketing and positioning. If the playing of the national anthem at all professional sports events stopped tomorrow, and I wish it would, professional sports would go on making money.

The NFL has stupidly allowed its games to become a litmus test for patriotism. In doing so, it’s income has tanked and it is facing a potentially disastrous lawsuit from Colin Kaepernick.
Scientologist Joy Villa has now obnoxiously jumped into the fray courtesy of Dennis Prager and Prager University.

Wiki on Dennis Prager:

According to NPR, Prager “often targets multiculturalism, Muslims and LGBTQ people.” Prager’s “inflammatory views and past statements about gays, liberals and others” have stirred controversy.

Prager opposes same-sex marriage. He has suggested that same-sex marriage will lead to polygamy and incest In 2014, he claimed that the “heterosexual AIDS” crisis was something “entirely manufactured by the Left.”

Prager endorsed Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election… Friedersdorf noted that Prager had in 2011 said that Trump’s profanity “render[ed] him unfit to be a presidential candidate, let alone president”; that he could not “trust the integrity or conscience of a man or woman who publicly humiliates his or her spouse” through adultery; that those who lie to besmirch the names of others cannot be trusted; and that “any human being with a functioning conscience or a decent heart loathes torture”.

In 2015, Prager headlined the title of one of his columns about the Iran nuclear agreement, “1938 and 2015: Only the Names Are Different”, implying that Obama was the equivalent of Neville Chamberlain whose Munich Agreement with Hitler is widely regarded as a failed act of appeasement toward Nazi Germany.

Op Ed: Scientology, Cannibalism, Sexuality, and Reza Aslan

Reza.1

Religious scholar and Scientology supporter Reza Aslan, for reasons of trite sensationalism on television, ate a piece of human brain on his CNN show Believer with Reza Aslan. This act of cannibalism on the banks of the Ganges with India’s Aghori monks was followed by an Aghori cleric eating his own feces and hurling them at the fleeing Reza Aslan. This was both cowardice and contradiction on Aslan’s part; for if Aslan can eat human brain then why can’t he consume feces as well? After all, he seems intent on proving that he can transcend the boundaries of convention in order to find the truth. Like Jesus, Reza Aslan wants to associate with the outcasts. And yet he has limits and places he will stop. For this reason he could not eat feces or spend the night in a sacred cave in Hawaii due to something as inconsequential as his fear of drowning.

Aslan, a wannabe Anthony Bourdain, is no Bourdain. Not even close. Aslan lacks Bourdain’s subtlety, intellect, sophistication, and screen presence. What Reza Aslan is doing on his CNN show is not sophisticated. Rather, what Aslan is doing is engaging in a weekly freak show during which, at the end of each episode, he affirms the intrinsic holiness of every religious path no matter how strange it is.

Thus, one can see the lazy formulaic mediocrity of Aslan’s television show without much work: Reza Aslan espouses Universalism, the view that all paths lead to God — even if these paths involve cannibalism, hurling feces, or believing that a self-admitted narcissist in  Hawaii named Jezus, a man who appears to be mentally ill, is the Messiah and prophet of the coming apocalypse. By embracing Universalism, Aslan can stage his televised freak show and reconcile demented cultic behavior to God at the conclusion of each episode. In doing so, Reza Aslan ultimately affirms nothing but his own inability to deal with serious criticisms of cults. Reza Aslan is a dilettante doing eminently forgettable throwaway television.

That Reza Aslan engaged in cannibalism with the Aghori comports perfectly with Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard’s teaching on cannibalism:

CLEARED CANNIBAL, the individual without engrams seeks survival along all of the dynamics in accordance with his breadth of understanding. This does not mean that a Zulu who has been cleared of all his engrams would not continue to eat missionaries if he were a cannibal by education; but it does mean that he would be as rational as possible about eating missionaries; further, it would be easier to re-educate him about eating missionaries if he were a Clear. – L. Ron Hubbard, Science of Survival, as cited in the 1975 edition of Dianetics and Scientology Technical Dictionary.

It is both bizarre and psychologically revealing to consider that Hubbard would allow cannibalism to be practiced within Scientology while condemning all LGBTQ persons in the pages of Dianetics:

The sexual pervert (and by this term Dianetics, to be brief, includes any and all forms of deviation in dynamic two such as homosexuality, lesbianism, sexual sadism, etc., and all down the catalog of Ellis and Krafft-Ebing) is actually quite ill physically.

Hubbard condemnation of LGBTQ persons, and therefore Scientology’s condemnation, gets even stranger when we consider that Hubbard cited the German psychiatrist Richard von Krafft Ebing as his authority. As LGBT Nation wrote of Krafft Ebing:

Richard von Krafft Ebing was a German Professor of psychiatry born in 1840 who spent much of his professional career studying, publishing, and lecturing on what he considered to be sexual aberrations. While many remember him for coining terms which first appeared in his book Psycopathia Sexualis with Especial Reference to Antipathic Sexual Instinct like fetishism, sexual psychopath, masochism, sadism, necrophilia, and heterosexuality, what he has ultimately been most remembered for was his role in the criminalization of homosexuality…

LGBT Nation goes on state that Krafft Ebing had two concerns which were later embraced by Hubbard and Scientology:

Krafft Ebing had two main concerns in the world of human sexuality; masturbation and homosexuality, both of which he saw as deviant.

Given Hubbard’s hatred of psychiatry and Scientology’s stated goal to obliterate psychiatry, it is breathtaking to consider that Scientology’s highly negative and condemnatory views of LGBTQ persons and of masturbation are informed by a 19th century German psychiatrist. This shows the blatant contradiction and intellectual bankruptcy at the core of Hubbard’s denunciation of LGBTQ persons as “1.1’s” and degraded beings.”

However, Hubbard was fine with cannibalism. Conversely, Reza Aslan’s show on Hinduism sparked massive outrage in the global Hindu community, with numerous articles criticizing Aslan. The Washington Post wrote:

Religion scholar Reza Aslan ate cooked human brain tissue with a group of cannibals in India during Sunday’s premiere of the new CNN show “Believer,” a documentary series about spirituality around the globe.

The outcry was immediate. Aslan, a Muslim who teaches creative writing at the University of California at Riverside, was accused of “Hinduphobia” and of mischaracterizing Hindus.

“With multiple reports of hate-fueled attacks against people of Indian origin from across the U.S., the show characterizes Hinduism as cannibalistic, which is a bizarre way of looking at the third largest religion in the world,” lobbyist group U.S. India Political Action Committees said in a statement, according to the Times of India.

Reza Aslan is clearly committed to sensationalism and not scholarship. For this reason, his CNN television show must be seen for what it is: A cynical attention-seeking professor of creative writing, for that is what Aslan actually is, seeking to make a second career for himself in television. Reza Aslan does not have a Ph.D. in religious studies and is not a religious scholar by either training or academic position. For CNN to promote Aslan as a “religious scholar” is misleading inasmuch as actual religious scholars have Ph.D.’s in religious studies.

Reza Aslan is an attention whore. In this vein, his foray into cannibalism with the Aghori monks can be compared to professional Scientology attention whore Joy Villa and the Trump dress she wore to this year’s Grammy show:

trump-dress-joy-villa-full-grammy-2017-600

Following her PR coup at on the Grammy red carpet, Joy Villa appeared at a Gays For Trump rally in Washington DC where she called for love and tolerance. I don’t see how Joy Villa, as a Scientologist, reconciles Scientology’s hatred and condemnation of LGBTQ persons with what she is doing by supporting Gays for Trump. Likewise, Reza Aslan’s CNN show lacks substance and instead is merely, like Joy Villa’s Trump dress, blatant attention-seeking by resorting to sensationalism.

Reza Aslan’s show on Scientology is next week. Aslan has already betrayed himself here by stating that he will cast the demented and vicious Scientology Cult in a favorable light. Hence, Reza Aslan will be donning his own version of the Trump dress in order to create some sensationalism in which he is the center of attention. Like I said, Aslan’s television show is lazy formulaic mediocrity.
