Most of us know that Aaron Kyro is a Scientologist. What most of us donít know is that 7 other current Braille employees and 1 former Braille employee are Scientologists. I thought Iíd 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
Iíve been perma banned. And when I tried to ask why, I was muted.

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

So Iím posting my OP to Slap to allow the discussion to continue:

Brailleís 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.

Who gives a fuck about Braille? It's geared towards 12 year olds, you really expect anything other than surface level little kid content on any braille page?

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.

I've never met an actual scientologist in my life. They're kind of like myths to me, I've also net met anyone who had lupus.
Anyone remember tech deck dudes?

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?
Stop hating and actually learn something about textile production. You dont know shit about that.

The thing with Braille is that itís 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 itís 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.

Thatís not a conspiracy theory, though; thatís actually exactly whatís happening. Not some big secret, though. Braille is a part of the Churchís ďyouth outreachĒ 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?
