Title: I was perma banned by r/BrailleSkateboarding for discussing Scientology
Post by: Punished Skateboards on October 12, 2020, 08:36:37 AM
Most of us know that Aaron Kyro is a Scientologist. What most of us don’t know is that 7 other current Braille employees and 1 former Braille employee are Scientologists. I thought I’d share that information with the r/BrailleSkateboarding community. It resulted in a lively discussion (41 up votes in one day - https://ibb.co/xFGg8GM), but I never thought things were getting out of hand.

I woke up this morning to find this message waiting for me - https://ibb.co/99b3whV. Turns out
I’ve been perma banned. And when I tried to ask why, I was muted.

I’ve had people on Reddit reach out to me to express their dismay that the post was removed - https://ibb.co/X7rm2cZ.

So I’m posting my OP to Slap to allow the discussion to continue:

Braille’s ties to Scientology go deeper than just Aaron Kyro. Devin Weber (CEO), Kylie Dacasin (VP Administration), Lance Silber (remember him?), and Chloe Holmes (remember her from the videos? she works at Braille now) are all Scientologists.

(Edit: We are now up to at least 8 current employees and 1 former employee.)

This is concerning.

Ive always wondered if the rest of the Revive dorks are all Scientologistis as well. They all act in that just odd way that Braille does. They all have that odd sense of humor that nobody other than sheltered 13 year olds find funny, and all are overly positive all the fucking time, just like Scientologists are.
Would be nuts to find out this entire sector of skateboarding they have made for themselves is all a creation of the church of Scientology, and to find out the majority of the copious profits they make all go back to Scientology. Thats my conspiracy theory.

Wack is wack, Braille and Revive represent a homogenized version of skating that turns it into something akin to T-ball. I hope any kid that got into skating because of them grows up and sees the bullshit for what it is. Fuck them.

It's concerning if you're deeply concerned about them or their personal lives/families.

I guess some concerns about Scientology recruiting through Braille could be concerning too. Mama, dont let your babies grow up to braille skateboarding subscribers. I already told me 11 year old theyre a lame kook cult. He agreed and then just subscribed to Lowcard. Also concerning but in a different way.

Concerns, they're valid.

Didn't know that sub existed. What a sack of shit. I would say we should organise a brigade of it but there's probably not enough people on here who use reddit. I actually made a skating subreddit to try and counteract how utterly wack all the skate content on that site is, but got uninspired to actually try and make it into a thing for the same reason. IDK would anyone on here use it if it was half decent skate stuff and not just skate instagram 2.0?

The thing with Braille is that it’s all fake: Aaron is a huge hater and super bummed he never made it in skating, he watches his own footy all day every day and does not have fun skating. He acts like he is having fun on videos but it’s just an act, he is a very frustrated individual and sad of the reality he has created.

I understand the argument that Scientology does comparatively less evil in the world than other religions (Catholicism and child abuse, the outsize influence of evangelical groups like The Fellowship in American politics, etc.). Still, there is something particularly sinister about the way Scientology infiltrates cultural spaces and the ruthlessness they have towards anyone who stands in their way. I'm sure most people from LA have a story or two about how insane they are. Someone I know's dad was investigating them years ago and they repeatedly threatened him and eventually killed his fucking dog.

These people need to be kept far away from anything you think is valuable at all costs.

That’s not a conspiracy theory, though; that’s actually exactly what’s happening. Not some big secret, though. Braille is a part of the Church’s “youth outreach” program.
I wonder if the Kyro fella would defeat Lord Xenu in a game of skate? Better yet... what about a game of skate played on a cheeseburger with trucks/wheels mounted on it?

Reddit is already the Braille of skating; it's not surprising that some deluded, overly positive sk8r got their raccoon tail keychain in a twist while being hit in the face with a whirlwind of politics. Like turning on a bright light to a dim idiot who has to look away in fear, and smash the report button. Or a Scientologist runs that subreddit, however that shit works.

Start fresh with a 30+ skate one, see if Aaron Kyro's chinless face comes sniffing around trying to be relevant.

More like “prime their fans” rather than outright conversion. This is done simply enough, through indoctrination.

They (Scientology) are so fucking dangerous, and their indoctrination is the exact same as that of any other predator, they groom and suppress. They have been responsible for some straight up awful shit, beyond just the obvious of killing peoples dogs and locking up people in their compound. That rabbit hole goes deep. 2 years ago I found out I had a half sister that was deep in Scientology and raised in it and eventually made her way up into the seaorg before escaping from the compound. Some of the shit she has said about it is fucking terrifying.

My dad got into an argument with a Scientologist handing out flyers outside a Miami grocery store back in the 80’s. My dad’s a Christian and gets in everybody’s business, so he decided to stand there and tell everybody that the dude was full of shit. After some yapping they went their separate ways and that was that.

That was like 35 years ago. To this day my dad gets mail from the church of Scientology despite changing addresses and moving to a new state. It’s been a somewhat constant flow of junk mail that began a few weeks after that argument and hasn’t ever stopped. It’s not a big deal to throw out their bullshit mailers, but it’s creepy as fuck that they keep track of random people like that just to harass them.

Anyway, I’d never even heard of Braille or revive or whatever it is until seeing it discussed here and I’ve never seen their product in real life. Are they really that big?

Btw, Braille has made so much money off of these toys that they’re now going to start making skate shoes. Scientology shoes!
https://www.licensing.biz/youtube-skateboarding-channel-braille-turns-to-footwear-after-successful-toy-range-debut/
The leading skateboarding YouTube Channel, Braille Skateboarding, is building on the international success of its officially licensed range of toy fingerboards and skate ramps with a leap into the world of footwear. In a partnership brokered by Semaphore Licensing, the skate brand has teamed with R&R Footwear to develop a new range of functional skate shoes.

Braille Skateboarding launched onto the consumer products scene in July this year when it brought its first collection of toy fingerboard and skate ramps to the international market. The range – which also comprised mystery surprise sets – became a hit with retail giants Amazon and Target, as fans ‘went wild for the toys’ inspired by the channel’s popular Skate Everything series.

Skate Everything features a collection of videos that showcase Braille Skateboarding’s founder, Aaron Kyro, creating skateboards from anything other than what you would think to use, such as computer keyboards, ironing boards, electric guitars, and even gummy bears.

The toy range was quickly met with ‘huge demand from skate fans from across the globe’ and soon after retailers and stockists were reportedly placing reorders to meet the elevated consumer demand. According to Semaphore Licensing, this demand was fuelled by the brand’s YouTube Channel and its more than 5.6 million subscribers.

Braille Skateboarding has also secured its first international retailer in Smyths Toys, who has brought the brand to the UK market. Projections currently show that by the end of 2020, close to one million finger boards will have been shipped to retailers.

Following the initial success, Braille is now positioned to expand its licensing efforts into new categories. The company has since partnered with R&R Footwear in a move to develop and roll out a ‘stylish and functional skate shoe’ that would appeal to skaters and non-skaters alike.

Braille Skateboarding now plans to chronicle the development journey of the new shoe in partnership with R&R Footwear as it aims to launch the product to retailers in summer 2021.

“We are ramping up to bring unique products to shelves globally on behalf of Braille Skateboarding,” said Michael Bienstock, founder and CEO, Semaphore Licensing. “We join Aaron in his mission to ensure the entire world knows what a Braille board is.”

I just remembered that my 85 year old grandpa got 'kidnapped' by scientologists around a decade ago. He was born on Guam and knew L Ron Hubbard when he lived there. Scientologists somehow found him, asked to interview him and he left with them and disappeared for over 10 hours one day. He never really talked about what happened on that day. Sketchy shit.

Sometimes I think about moving to LA and becoming a Scientologist to short cut to being rich and famous. It’s like a life cheat code. I just don’t think I could keep a straight face when someone is explaining Xenu and they seem like the wrong people to piss off.

That’s exactly why so many people in entertainment get involved. But then you end up making a bunch of live action Chipmunks movies and figuring out it wasn’t worth sacrificing your identity and have to try to break out.

The LRH series is insane in that it proves that if you’re deranged enough you really can just fake it till you make it, you might just have to have ketchup soup for a little bit in the interim.

This is actually pretty interesting. The entire organization is run by these weirdos. Braille just keeps getting weirder, I wonder what they'd do if a real skate media outlet covered this? It would be cool if the first thing you saw when you googled Braille Skateboarding was an article about how they're all Scientologist nut jobs. Parents shouldn't let their kids watch that shit, its creepy.

These guys are multi millionaires off of peddling this creepy kids skateboarding content, and it seems way creepier when you look behind the curtain.

Here’s some info about Dennis Negley.

OT VIII (old), Class IV (old, Apollo trained), Veteran Scientologist (active since early 70s). Husband of veteran staff member, Wendy Negley (nee Peterson), who trained to Class VIII in the late 60s (maybe early 70s) and was the Senior C/S San Francisco Day until 1996, when the Golden Age of Tech (squirrelled) came out. Dennis is currently a public, Wendy is currently the OES SFOD. Their daughter, Devin Weber (nee Negley) is the D/ED SFOD, is OEC trained and recently went Clear, after Golden Age of Tech II (non-squirrel, for now). Their son, Sean, is a declared SP and they have all disconnected from him. Sean was on staff for 10 years and after routing out, posted song lyrics on Facebook, including the song from TOOL with the line “Fuck L.Ron Hubbard and fuck all his clones”. His sister saw the quote and reported him; “y’all busted”.

There are some whack-ass skateboarding CEOs out there (Mikey Taylor, Ryan Clements), but this Devin Weber woman who is the CEO of Braille takes the cake. Not only has she never set foot on a skateboard, she’s on this podcast for half an hour talking about how she wants to “destroy” and “crush” Braille’s competition. I thought Braille’s whole mission statement was to grow skateboarding? If any Braille simps find their way here from Reddit, please tell me how this Scientologist kook is good for skateboarding.

https://womenofyoutube.com/006-devin-weber-managing-the-largest-skateboarding-channel-over-4-million-subs/

In this episode of Women of Youtube I talk with the CEO of Braille Skateboarding, Devin Weber, about managing the LARGEST skateboarding channel on Youtube (over 4 million subscribers). Her love of accounting lead her to running Braille but she has NEVER been in one of the Braille Skateboarding videos.

https://mobile.twitter.com/MrsDesireeRose/status/1251571238411124738

The first time I ever heard Devin Weber speak she said the worlds "I will crush you" and I knew she was someone I needed in my life. She is joining to share her knowledge on diversification through multiple languages, cultures, and countries.

Tax Evasion 101 with Braille Skateboarding CEO Devin Weber!
https://youtu.be/v2NPZQhmqG8

She learned from one of the best - her father, Dennis Negley!

https://www.forum.exscn.net/threads/the-scientology-religious-pass-the-pen-fundraising-technique.37856/

Dennis used to be a mortgage loan broker, helping a bunch of Scientologists refinance their homes so they can pay for more services/IAS donos/etc. In 2006/2007 the real estate market crashed and he lost his job as a loan broker, as well as his own house, and he ended up declaring bankruptcy. He would no longer be able to donate anything substantial to the IAS/etc. and in exchange he agreed to be a full-time fundraiser. Whenever there would be a fundraising event, he’d be there on stage. His deal was that he wouldn’t take any commission earned (since he was a public fundraiser) and that money would go straight back to the IAS, so that was him “doing his part”.

He was already pretty good at getting SF idiots to give money, during their Idle Morgue building fundraiser, so he wrote up all his successful actions. You can find his full 2003 write-up here: http://www.forum.exscn.net/showthread.php?16514-Cult-Fundraising-EventsHat-Write-Up. Though this addendum seems to have been written later. I wonder what the date on this is.

At some point after 2007, he was mid OT VII and unable to pay for his next “6-month check”. He was routed to Ethics and threatened with a Comm Ev if he couldn’t pay for his next trip. He ended up routing off the level, and later told me the story about it. He was sitting in a Qual Library and thought “Right now I’d be better off dead. … A ha! That’s a suicidal thought!” So he wrote something up to his D of P about it and was taken off the Flag base pretty much immediately. When he told all this to me, he called it his “getting out of prison story,” with a grin as he said it.

The more you know.

The whole “Braille Army Rankings” (https://brailleskateboarding.com/braille-army/ranks/) and “SMS Master Skateboarding” (https://brailleskateboarding.com/product/dvd-sms-1-6-master-skateboarding/) (“Master” - like “The Master”?!) is a carbon copy of Scientology’s love of awards and levels (https://umbraxenu.no-ip.biz/mediawiki/index.php/Category:Scientology_award). So when little kids eventually comes across Aaron’s Scientology videos (https://youtu.be/clBtEd631i0) (https://youtu.be/EkmL3W_TYDw), their brains are already conditioned to find the awards and levels of Scientology appealing. I’ve also heard that Scientology videos may appear in people’s “Recommended” videos after watching Braille videos.

Also, there is a literal TV network (https://instagram.com/scientologytv?igshid=ko2cztvbawvu) dedicated to Scientology that uses Braille content for recruitment purposes. And oh, what a coincidence, they just so happen to use one of Braille’s most popular/viewed concepts, the glass skateboard.

Here she is in August 2020 pimping Fetty Potter, who she fired a year ago yet has never made a public statement about. Saying how savvy she is for knowing $10k challenge videos were trending so she had “a team rider known for breaking stuff” (that’s Fetty, FYI) do a video trying to break a safe open for $10k. Claiming this video got a million views in 48 hours! Bruh here is the video from February 2019 and it still doesn’t have a million views! Yet I bet it’s still monetized. Good job Devin, way to keep cashing in on a 26 year old guy you fired last year for being in a relationship with a 14 year old.

Scientology has really been struggling to recruit new adult followers in recent years because of how much about the inner workings have been revealed over the past decade or so. It's really hard to persuade people to join your group when the "harmless weirdos" facade has been washed away, and everyone can see how violently manipulative the church is.

The fact that scientology appears to be running a "youth outreach program" in skateboarding is really troubling. They're having a hard time finding grown ass adults who are both desperate and uninformed enough to get manipilated into joining, so now they're going after young people who are gravitating to an activity that generally appeals to people who feel like outsiders, and who are often looking for somewhere to belong and find themselves in. Those are the kind of people who are VERY vulnerable to cult manipulation tactics.

Excellent research, OP. I was going to write an article on Skateboarding and Scientology ages ago but decided I wanted no part in that craziness. Scientology goons harassing naysayers aside, it's hard to get people to even care, lmao. But seeing as you did similar research as I did, I'll share some notes I had made in 2015 (before ScientologyTV was a thing, but after his "I am a Scientologist" promo)


So yeah, at worst there's been an active effort by Scientology to appeal to kids, skateboarding the bait, Braille is the vessel. But Braille has never outright posted any Scientology content on their channel so they're mostly just profiting off zoomers watching clickbait dorks. Even in the 70's, Scientology would never advertise themselves as "Scientology", but by other means. So if Braille ever starts to offer "Skate Camps!" that's when I feel the community needs to blowhorn this info. They'll get you hooked through other means before nudging you pay for Scientology Super Power text books like our pal Kyro has by the boxes.

She in turn did an interview with him and had it on her now defunct blog (http://oururbanplayground.com/skateboarding/). Interesting to see that she ended up working for Braille in the end.
Would gnar if I could! Instead I’ll just quote Lou Strux - “!!!”
You gotta write that article.

“Born in 1964, this second-generation church member climbed through Scientology's various levels of mental functioning - steps on a spiritual ladder that promise enlightenment and "literal immortality."

Scientologists call it "moving up the bridge."

“I'm at a very, very high level," Latch said. "I feel like I have a great understanding of myself spiritually - I can decide what I want, and the power of that decision alone can allow the material universe to align with my decision."

Latch's father, San Francisco chiropractor Lloyd Latch, and his mother, Connie, joined the Church of Scientology in the 1970s. They credit its counseling program with saving a once-troubled marriage.”

Lance Silber's father is a photographer and it's highly likely the only reason Lance was ever involved with Braille was because Arron wanted to use his cameras to film his videos. He's been in the church a long time and his connections run deep https://www.truthaboutscientology.com/stats/by-name/m/marc-silber.html
Fuck. Or Marc Silber wanted to use Aaron to sell books and grow his own channel.

So yeah, at worst there's been an active effort by Scientology to appeal to kids, skateboarding the bait, Braille is the vessel. But Braille has never outright posted any Scientology content on their channel so they're mostly just profiting off zoomers watching clickbait dorks. Even in the 70's, Scientology would never advertise themselves as "Scientology", but by other means. So if Braille ever starts to offer "Skate Camps!" that's when I feel the community needs to blowhorn this info. They'll get you hooked through other means before nudging you pay for Scientology Super Power text books like our pal Kyro has by the boxes.
Blow that horn baby

Scientology has really been struggling to recruit new adult followers in recent years because of how much about the inner workings have been revealed over the past decade or so. It's really hard to persuade people to join your group when the "harmless weirdos" facade has been washed away, and everyone can see how violently manipulative the church is.

The fact that scientology appears to be running a "youth outreach program" in skateboarding is really troubling. They're having a hard time finding grown ass adults who are both desperate and uninformed enough to get manipilated into joining, so now they're going after young people who are gravitating to an activity that generally appeals to people who feel like outsiders, and who are often looking for somewhere to belong and find themselves in. Those are the kind of people who are VERY vulnerable to cult manipulation tactics.

I've heard that they are also heavily targeting recent immigrants too. I see a lot of older latino people getting on the metro at the station right near their hq on sunset with bags full of scientology literature.

Have there been any Scientology-related posts removed from Slap? Outside of tax issues, their alleged legal prowess is probably exaggerated. Former members have filed defamation lawsuits against Xenu than the other way around. That said, I had bizarre conversation with one of their attorneys (I'd rather not mention why) and was freaked out the next weekend when I saw that they had (coincidentally) set up a Dianetics table in front of my house.

Post by: Punished Skateboards on October 15, 2020, 06:35:23 AM
This is from an anonymous source. Someone who was once close to Aaron Kyro.

“lived with me in San Francisco in 03, the year before he became a member of this fucked up cult. We lived in a small one bedroom apartment in Daly City and eventually after dealing with enough of his spoiled brat shit as a roommate we parted ways. Prior to that I was his connection to the skateboard world at large, he was strange as a kid and was incapable of just hanging out with people. Now, within six months of us moving into separate locations he received a knock on the door from Scientologists and from there he became entrenched with their religion. During the first year we stayed in touch and I was curious about his new found love for religion, I had been a converted evangelical and had always expressed my beliefs and faith at the time to Aaron. He wanted me to join this thing and I attempted to give it an honest shot but it was obvious to me early on that it was a cult (sadly that same realization over evangelicalism took me longer to figure out the same conclusion). He left skateboarding at a time when he was just about to blow up: he was getting boards from girl, alien, and real. Dennis buesenitz was super stoked on him and his future was bright. About a year into Scientology I told him about YouTube. I had just seen Travis stranger posted footy in there (likely Ryan Mcguigan) but was telling him this would be a great platform for him to get his shit out there. He took my advice and posted that edit with the matrix song and it blew up. Sometime between there and the next three years was when he decided to do Braille. He also moved to florida during that interim so who knows what happened there. He has since disconnected from pretty much everyone of his youth and his love for Scientology has only grown. What they have done with him since then I don’t really know. He was a good kid, but very self obsessed. Where he is now with this shit seems unreal. I sincerely hope they aren’t acting like gangsters and doing shit like throwing acid in people’s faces, that would be really strange considering how physically and mentally weak Aaron is, but who knows. Anyway, that’s is the origin with kyro and Scientology to my knowledge. It began at the end of 04.”

Hey - just wanted to let you know that Gabe Cruz is actually the Director of Video Production at Braille Skateboarding. Holly does work at Braille though, as you can see from her Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/thehollyiris/ (https://www.instagram.com/thehollyiris/).

I learned this because @stokemuch just wrote an article about abuse in skateboarding - https://medium.com/@stokemuchmag/abuse-in-skateboarding-e75296d058e5 (https://medium.com/@stokemuchmag/abuse-in-skateboarding-e75296d058e5).

"I reached out to Braille on July 24 via phone and the woman who answered declined to comment on the incident, but she directed me to email a woman named Holly for a comment and info, but my subsequent request to Holly was never returned."

And "Holly Iris" also goes by "Holly Van Raders." Pretty hypocritical of her to be complaining about customer service when she won't even respond to her own customer service emails.

Scientology has really been struggling to recruit new adult followers in recent years because of how much about the inner workings have been revealed over the past decade or so. It's really hard to persuade people to join your group when the "harmless weirdos" facade has been washed away, and everyone can see how violently manipulative the church is.

The fact that scientology appears to be running a "youth outreach program" in skateboarding is really troubling. They're having a hard time finding grown ass adults who are both desperate and uninformed enough to get manipilated into joining, so now they're going after young people who are gravitating to an activity that generally appeals to people who feel like outsiders, and who are often looking for somewhere to belong and find themselves in. Those are the kind of people who are VERY vulnerable to cult manipulation tactics.
IDK about the younger generation being indoctrinated. A lot of people in that age range ( 14-17) have seen stuff about the cult through stuff like South Park through negligent parenting (definitely not how scientologists want to be represented). Not to mention how prevalent the anti-scientologist sentiment is on yt ( JRE has done a couple interviews on them). Not saying that they aren't gonna indoctrinate kids but to say that they aren't fighting an uphill battle is wrong. I think its just some kooks flailing around trying to get some skateboarding twinks to join in their weird masked orgies. I don't think it will work unless they go back to kidnapping people but that a whole nother can of worms.

The video he said was related was released on the same day. As shitty as their videos are I doubt it takes a day to film, edit, and upload. Not to mention that the stuff seems to dangerous sure but the guy made it seem like she looks like twoface. IDK seems sus it sucks that is happen to her but is it realistic that they are going around giving old ladies acid facials and then dipping to their dianetics class.

The video he said was related was released on the same day. As shitty as their videos are I doubt it takes a day to film, edit, and upload. Not to mention that the stuff seems to dangerous sure but the guy made it seem like she looks like twoface. IDK seems sus it sucks that is happen to her but is it realistic that they are going around giving old ladies acid facials and then dipping to their dianetics class.
Unless Chadd has been going after the church of scientology since 2014, I doubt they're responsible.

It's the cloverdale rodeo, world roundup.


Chadds family has been in the news before and a few random really terrible things have happened to him/his family including an acid attack on his mom. I'm not sure who hates them and why or what hes involved in but Surrey is Surrey.

More likely he was suggesting that they were taunting him, possibly threatening?

Sorry I took the video that was posted at face value. Still I'm still skeptical of a Scientologist hit squad in surrey take everything with a grain of slat though because I'm not an expert on this topic.

If 4CHAN can get Trump elected (See documentary film Feels Good Man for their role, thanks for that SLAP) then SLAP should at least be able to get Chadd his YouLube channel back from Xenu’s lawyers.
CoS on cancelling Chadd Sinclair’s media empire: confirmed.

This is actually pretty interesting. The entire organization is run by these weirdos. [..] and it seems way creepier when you look behind the curtain.

Agreed. This is an incredible thread OP.

it's self evident that braille is wack as fuck but I had no idea it was so thoroughly infiltrated by scientology at all levels. very scary considering their primary audience is probably kids 14 and under
