Scientology critic and Jason Beghe filmer’s YouTube account suspended

For the second time in well under a week a prominent critic of Scientology has had their YouTube account suspended. Suspended without explanation, moreover. A few days ago, it was ex-Scientologist Tory Christman who had her account, ToryMagoo44, unexplicably pulled, despite her never engaging in any terms of service violations (e.g., presenting copyrighted content). Her account, fortunately, was quickly restored. Yesterday, the victim was Mark “Wise Beard Man” Bunker of XenuTV.Com, the XenuTV WordPress blog, and YouTube account XenuTV1. Bunker’s name has been gaining some water-cooler mention of late as he is the man who produced the Jason Beghe interview on Scientology – the 3-minute teaser for which was released earlier this week. Bunker’s YouTube account was pulled on the very day that he was scheduled to release the full Beghe interview.
The most reasonable explanation for the removal of Bunker as well as Christman’s accounts is that YouTube received a barrage of emails from Scientologists, many of which were probably working for Scientology in sending these emails, and each of which probably sent multiple emails from a collection of fake email accounts. I base these speculations on the past behaviour of the cult in similar situations (e.g., the cult’s attempts to suppress the alt.religion.scientology forum where ex-members discussed their hardships in Scientology).

  1. Thanks for carrying this story. I’d like to see big guns like Slashdot pick it up. That’d guarantee about 3 million hits.

    YouTube (Google) has no interest in freedom of speech. They are a business and nothing more.
