Colin Henderson, Daniel Hite, and crew, have been working around the clock in Oklahoma to prepare the “Scientology Cult of Confusion” tour vehicle. Creative images arrived in Canada a few minutes ago exhibiting their entheta artwork.
Leahy’s documentary film is directed at exposing Scientology’s front groups, Narconon, Citizens Commission on Human Rights, Association for Better Living and Education, and several more.
The documentary website, “Suppressa Palooza” website is now live and will be used daily for posting updates of each day’s events, including ‘teaser’ video clips.
Tomorrow afternoon, David Love from Canada, will meet up with Colin Henderson and Bert Leahy in Oklahoma to begin the 3,800 mile journey. Leahy intends to film and document personal experiences of ex-Scientology members, ex-Narconon drug rehab victims, and any other people who have comments.
The logistics planning by Colin Henderson is complete and the tour vehicle’s GPS is programmed for destinations and arrival times at each city.
Halfway through the tour, the documentary trio will stop for a two day ‘SP’ party with dozens of other Scientology critics from around the globe. ‘SP’ is a term coined by Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard, as ‘Suppressive Person’.
Suppressive Person, often abbreviated SP, is a term used in Scientology to describe the “antisocial personalities” who, according to Scientology’s founder L. Ron Hubbard, make up about 2.5% of the population. A statement on a Church of Scientology website describes this group as including notorious historic figures such as Adolf Hitler.
Hubbard considered reporters and government agents to be members of suppressive groups: “There are no good reporters. There are no good government or SP group agents. The longer you try to be nice, the worse off you will be. And the sooner one learns this, the happier he will be.”

A dedicated crew is working around the clock to make ready for an “adventure of a lifetime journey”, said one commenter on Facebook today. The “Cult of Confusion” documentary will begin filming tomorrow, August 5, 2013, in Oklahoma, then up to New York and back down to Texas.
Members of Scientology call L. Ron Hubbard’s doctrines a religion, but many ex-members and critics declare Scientology a dangerous and abusive cult of confusion.
Perhaps Hubbard was speaking of himself when he said, “A confused person is in a trance of their own making – and therefore goes readily into that trance without resistance. Confusion might be created by ambiguous words, complex or endless sentences, pattern interruption or a myriad other techniques to incite trans-derivational searches.”
Texan, Bert Leahy, the videographer who was hired by Scientology as a Squirrel Buster to harass former Scientology executive, Marty Rathbun, said a few minutes ago, “see you soon my friend this is going to be quite an adventure.” Examiner writer, David Edgar Love, will be joining Leahy on this ambitious filming tour, and will be publishing events as they unfold.
Colin Henderson, the trusted logistics man on the crew, is now putting final touches on the vehicle graphics and programming the GPS to help keep the tour on target and time.
A moment ago on the new website created for the tour, Henderson posted: “The Suppressa Palooza Tour is set to begin in less than 24 hours. We can’t wait to get this party started. We know we are going to hear some amazing and heartbreaking stories as we track along our 3,800 mile journey. We can’t wait to hear your story. All of the support we have received has been truly amazing. We can’t thank everyone enough.”
Many view L. Ron Hubbard as a drug addicted sociopath, using his brainpower to deceive others rather than empower them — a man who feigned love or compassion in order to get what he wanted. Hubbard thought of himself as a master wordsmiths, able to deliver a running “stream of consciousness” monologue that was both intriguing and hypnotic.
Hubbard once said he had “high hopes of smashing my name into history so violently that it will take a legendary form even if all books are destroyed.”
Indeed, the founder of Scientology was a man of galactic extravagance in his thoughts and books. Perhaps his letter to his wife in 1967 explains the reason for his own confused mind: “I’m drinking lots of rum and popping pinks and greys.”
Hubbard’s claim that Xenu was the ruler of a Galactic Confederacy 75 million years ago, gathered billions of his galactic citizens, delivered them to earth and unloaded around the bases of volcanoes, is one of his craziest narratives.
Hydrogen bombs were then lowered into the volcanoes and killed all but a few aliens.
The now-disembodied victims’ souls, which Hubbard called thetans, became what are known as body thetans, which are said to be still clinging to and adversely affecting everyone except Scientologists who have performed the expensive steps to remove them with auditing sessions.
Scientology is one of the most criticized, mysterious, and confusing religions or cults in modern history. Bert Leahy’s documentary, “Cult of Confusion” hopes to demystify the policies, and doctrines in Scientology that have harmed and abused not only church members, but also their disconnection and other aggressive practices that traumatize family members and loved ones.

“Scientology — Cult of Confusion”
August 5th – August 17
WHO WE ARE:
• Bert Leahy — Videographer who was hired by Scientology as a Squirrel Buster to harass former Scientology executive, Marty Rathbun, but quit and denounced the evil that Scientology’s thugs were perpetrating. A man with a passion for truth who pours his heart out to help others.
• David Love — Ex-Narconon patient and staff member, exposing Scientology-Narconon abuses. A writer for the Montreal Examiner.
• Colin Henderson — Ex-Narconon patient and victim advocate, exposing Narconon abuses. Colin has a big heart, filled with love and compassion, and he believes: ”It’s a duty to help your fellow human being, your fellow man.”
Filming Bert Leahy’s silver screen documentary “Scientology — Cult of Confusion” is the main purpose of this tour. Bert hopes to interview ex-Scientologists in each city on the itinerary, even church members brave enough to talk on camera. Members of the general public will also be welcome to express their views. To date, numerous ex-Scientologists, Narconon victims, and individuals have contacted us for interviews.
The Suppressa Palooza Tour will provide a great time capsule to gage where the Scientology protest movement is today through the eyes of 3 unique Scientology victims networking with other Scientology victims and ex-Scientologists across North America and abroad. The goal is to cover all sides, with all opinions welcome.
“Scientology — Cult of Confusion” — objectives:
Those involved in the Tour have a common desire to warn the public, media, and government agencies about Scientology’s dangerous and abusive organization.
• Scientology’s front groups include Narconon, the Association for Better Living and Education (ABLE), the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), the Cult Awareness Network, the Way to Happiness Foundation, Applied Scholastics, and many more.
• Tax exemption: In October 1993, the IRS formally announced that the Church of Scientology and its related “social betterment organizations” had been granted tax exemption. We believe and insist that Scientology’s tax exemption should once again be revoked, as it was previously in a 1967 IRS audit.
• Fair Game policy (harassment/intimidation of critics): In 1965, L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, formulated the “Fair Game Law,” which dictates how to deal with suppressive persons (SPs), people who interfere with Scientology’s activities. Opponents can be considered “fair game” for retaliation and “May be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed.”
• Dead Agenting — In the 1970s, L. Ron Hubbard continued to codify the policy of “attacking the attacker” and assigned a term to it that is used frequently within Scientology: “dead agenting.” Hubbard wrote: “If attacked on some vulnerable point by anyone or anything or any organization, always find or manufacture enough threat against them to cause them to sue for peace.”
• Disconnection — THIS MUST STOP! Disconnection is the severance of all ties between a Scientologist and a friend, colleague, or family member deemed to be antagonistic towards Scientology. The practice of disconnection is a form of shunning. Among Scientologists, disconnection is viewed as an important method of removing obstacles to one’s spiritual growth. In many circumstances, disconnection has ended marriages and separated children from their parents.
• Coerced/Forced Abortions — Scientology’s female Sea Organization members are pressured to have abortions. They are threatened with separation from their families, hard labor, interrogations, and shunning if they do not comply. Although Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard stated his appreciation for families within the Sea Org, Scientology’s subsequent leader, David Miscavige, issued an order that children were to be banned in the Sea Org. The mandate by Miscavige asserted that children hampered the productivity of the corps that runs Scientology.
• Families of Critics —Speaking out or engaging in litigation and other battles to expose the cult’s atrocities takes a toll on critics and victims of Scientology. Many family members who have not experienced Scientology don’t understand why. “Why must you continue to fight them?” some ask. The victim is often attacked with vicious lies, and the entire family suffers. Opposing Scientology publicly can be distressing to some, and taking time away from family matters and relationships can be upsetting. This WHY question will be addressed in interviews with critics and victims.
This 27-city tour is indeed an ambitious endeavor to complete in 12 days. However, with the epic business management and logistical skills of Colin Henderson and the creative, hard-working Bert Leahy filming, it shall be done.
The first major film festival was held in Venice in 1932, and now, 80 years later, Bert Leahy will be submitting “Scientology — Cult of Confusion” to film festivals on the silver screen, perhaps even to the world’s first online film festival, the GreenCine Online Film Festival, sponsored by DivX, Inc.
Edmund Burke once said: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”
