Ms. Dacasin needs to be a little more conservative with those teeth when smiling.

That’s Mrs. Claude Dacasin to you! (Husband Claude, also a Scientologist and pals with Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Kyro.)

So apparently Claude Dacasin is only two levels away from OT VIII, which is currently the highest level anyone has even gotten too in Scientology. You get awarded the level on a private cruise ship.

That makes me think of "The Master"

More podcast gold from Devin Weber, CEO of Braille Skateboarding! Who in case you forgot, also a Scientologist https://ibb.co/qNVN6nb https://vidiq.com/blog/post/skateboarding-channel-5-million-youtube-subscribers/

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.

Speaking of bans! discussing this garbage brand, losers who are affiliated, or discussion of any other "youyuber" should result in ban from Slap...even if you're discussing in a negative light.

did i just ban myself?

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.

You guys should listen to the last podcast series on L Ron Hubbard.

Or Going Clear.
[close]

To date one of my favorite series they’ve done. Still cracks me up that LRH cucked jack parsons.
[close]

I’m partial to the Norwegian Death Metal series myself.

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.
[close]

I enjoyed the Norwegian black metal series a lot too, it’s so hard to choose because I fucking loved the Donner party and Mormonism series. The entire LPN just consistently churns out incredible content.

But to your point, Joseph Smith showed you can just will to power your way from graving robbing and ceremonial white magic to being the founder of a new religious movement pretty fucking quickly.

Big fan of Last Podcast, cool to see it brought up here.
Also fuck Braille, They are a growing cancer in skateboarding.

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.

Jennifer Latch was the woman in the "Teach your Mom to Skate!" video. There's an interesting amount of nepotism at play here. She used to write for the HuffPost, and the video was even featured in the HuffPost. Then it was shared to Buzzfeed. 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.

More on Jennifer Latch

“Barbara Nisbet completed OT VIII in 2007. She was a well-respected and loved veteran Scientologist in the Chicago field. Her daughter is Jennifer Latch (San
Francisco Org Tech CS and wife of Snr CS SFO Stephen Latch) and Barbara’s husband was a long-time Chicago area Scientologist Class VIII field auditor Rich Nisbet.”

And this is Jennifer’s husband, Steve Latch

https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/When-Scientology-Is-Passed-Down-2952826.php

“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.

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.

Thank you to whoever posted this. Make sure to get screenshots for when this inevitably gets removed by the mods and you get banned.
https://www.reddit.com/r/BrailleSkateboarding/comments/jap4i2/scientology_scienscientology/

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.

Sorry that was a lame joke about how cult like apple advertising is.

I remember after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti when everyone was sending relief scientologist came down and were offering people whose lives were destroyed free "audits".

I take back what I said in the other thread... Braille really is one of the worst things to happen to skateboarding.  The whole ceo shit is ridiculous.  The fact their videos are so approachable for kids is problematic.  14 year old me ate that shit up.

Fr man a few years ago I ate that shit up, the clickbait makes it impossible to not watch them when youre a kid and the youtube algorithm recommends them to you so you can’t escape them.

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.”
