VIDEO: Scientology shill admits infiltrating NAACP to forward crusade against psychiatry

We have a video from CCHR International this week featuring staff members Eitan Celender and Rev. Fred Shaw. The Citizens Commission for Human Rights is a Scientology front that has agitated against the psychiatric profession since 1969, and is easily Scientology’s most brazen and unhinged front group.

In the video, which was meant only for Scientologists, Shaw describes how for years he has infiltrated civil rights organizations such as the NAACP and the National Action Network to promote Scientology’s crusade against psychiatry.

Shaw describes his work as “third partying” between mental health organizations and churches.


[From “The Third Party Law” on the Scientology Network]

One of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard’s theories is that in any conflict between two parties there is a hidden third party instigator. He frequently used the theory to explain away criticism of Scientology, placing the blame on an invisible agitator. By feeding lies to two people or organizations, the third party manufactures a conflict that isn’t in the interest of either main party.

Says Shaw:

There’s people out there who are saying that someone is third partying the churches and mental health. Someone is creating a war between those two groups. And I want to reveal today. That is me. I’m creating the war between mental health and the clergy and the idea is the return back into the hands of the spiritual body the things of mental health issues and to be able to secure a lot of the funding that goes to mental health to come into programs in the various communities so we can save and protect the children against what they’re doing with the mass drugging and electric shock.

It’s a shocking admission that Shaw is acting as a third party agitator, and is lying to American ministers to enlist them in Scientology’s war on psychiatry.


Celender provides an overview of CCHR’s activities, recent news about psychiatric medicines and CCHR’s database of psychiatric drug side effects. He highlights the new CCHR web site and announced the development of a new smartphone app for CCHR.

The end of the call is a fundraiser. Celender claims to have a donor who would match donations up to $2,000. They didn’t make that goal.

“Tech — on both the 1st and 3rd dynamics — is proceeding at lightning speed. And early tech and books are coming into their own also. If everyone on Flag and on station ships know and wear their own hats well and insist on the fellow next to him wearing his, we have a potentially brilliant future. First and Third Dynamic Tech was never better, or orgs are doing well. We can greatly improve our actions and lines. If we can continue to best the enemy and get things running right we will really E-X-P-A-N-D. It took 100 years to abolish slavery. We are 20 years up on abolishing barbarism in psychiatry in a much faster moving age. If we keep at it and get better on our own jobs and get the breaks, I give us three years to have full command of the situation.” — L. Ron Hubbard, May 31, 1970

“The video I posted describes that they remote viewed (years ago) the emergence of Q Anon. And further indicates that the arrival of Q Anon was made possible thanks to the LRH Journal 67, where Ron describes who the SPs are on this planet (Bankers and the 12 SPs). Subsequently they describe Ron’s Journal 68 and give a quote by LRH of it. Then the narrator in the video indicates that he has seen that the war was won by Scientology and that is why Q Anon is able to make his appearance.”

“No way is D.M. going to intentionally beach a whale. The obvious solution would be to send someone to their mansion to audit them. I’ve read they do this. First of all, it makes the whale feel special, and secondly, it prevents the whales from going to the Orgs and seeing how empty they are.”
