John Mappin PRopaganda: Examples 1 and 2


Good examples of John Mapping passing off Scientology propaganda off as ‘newsworthy PR’

One thing there’s no shortage of is examples of John Mappin’s use of the online Press Release in his attempt to a) make himself look really important and b) to get across Scientology’s message here in the UK.

The first example I’ve chosen here is from way back in 2005. It’s an online press-release from John entitled ‘British Newspaper Group Supports Tom Cruise in his Campaign Against Ritalin‘. It would be more truthful if it said: ‘Scientologist and owner of a free scientology rag that no one reads supports Tom Cruise blindly waging L.Ron Hubbard’s war against the psychiatric profession’.

The second ‘Ron Paul Song goes Number One in UK on YouTube‘ dating from 2008, saw John trying to convince er.. anyone that would listen that his musical noodling had helped US Republican Congressman Ron Paul to .. er win or something. Many people believe that Ron Paul is in the pay of Scientology. I can’t be bothered to try to verify that fact or disprove it. Nor, for that matter, can I even be bothered to poke holes in John’s YouTube claim.

All I can say is that if you’re a Texan Congressman and you’ve got John Mappin writing songs for you from the basement of Camelot Castle, then it’s a pretty good bet that you’re in some way connected to Scientology. šŸ˜‰
