Felos Stunned by Hemlock Link

CALLER: Hi, Rush!

RUSH: Hi.

CALLER: I just wanted to know if you happened to catch George Felos on Fox & Friends this morning.

RUSH: Yes.

CALLER: What did you think?

RUSH: Well, there's a number of things that we have from Felos. One of the things -- what did you want to ask me about regarding Felos?

CALLER: Well, when they got to the last question I thought he looked, like, totally stunned. I think he thought that he did really, really good throughout the whole thing looking real calm.

RUSH: For people that don't know, what was the question?

CALLER: About the Hemlock Society?

RUSH: What was the question? I want you to tell me.

CALLER: Oh, I'm sorry. They had asked him -- they had heard a lot of talk on the radio -- or on talk radio, and they wanted to know if he really and truly belonged to the Hemlock Society.

RUSH: Yeah, and he said that he didn't.

CALLER: You didn't think that he looked stunned?

RUSH: Well, I think he looked stunned. I think he looked stunned, but he was not -- from everything I've been able to gather, he was not -- a member of the Hemlock Society.

CALLER: Oh, he wasn't?

RUSH: He was not. Here's what we know about the Hemlock Society and the Felos bunch, and this comes from Judi McLeod from the Toronto Free Press, it's a website, and we had the story yesterday. "Dr. Ronald Cranford, handpicked by Michael Schiavo to examine Terri and on whose say-so Terri was categorized in 'persistent vegetative state.' Cranford is the MD who officially ordered Terri’s feeding tube removed on March 18.... He was 1992’s featured speaker for the pro-euthanasia Hemlock Society, which was renamed The Choice in Dying Society," but not Felos. However, they're all connected because all these people are -- well, except for one, all of them are -- board members of the hospice in Pinellas Park. But Felos himself was not a member of the Hemlock Society. We have the sound bite. I think he was stunned not by the question about his membership but just the whole idea that it had been discovered that everybody involved in this hospice, that all the board members have and Felos does, too -- do have connections to people who are part of the Hemlock Society. It was a pro-euthanasia group. The question from Steve Doocy was, "Talk radio has been buzzing about your connection to the Hemlock Society. Could you just make that clear for us?"

FELOS: I don't know what they're... Uhhh, I don't know what they're talking about. I've -- I've -- I've spoken, uhhh, I've spoken before the Hemlock, uh, Society and -- but I'm -- I'm -- I'm not a member. Ummm, I don't serve, uh, in that organization, so I -- I -- don't know what they're talking about.

RUSH: I think he was a little stunned that the whole concept of the Hemlock Society was brought up here. I think this is something they thought was pretty much unknown because the mainstream press wasn't talking about it, the mainstream press is not talking about these connections.

If Felos is ever on another call-in Q&A, ask him if he's reached an OT VIII Level yet and if so, what special powers does he now possess?

Seriously. He'll turn whiter than Robert Byrd's sheet.

Sorry, I saw the interview and I think he's a weasel, but he came across as sincerely not understanding the reference. Not stunned, but innocent.

Man, when I was still in high school, IIRC, I heard about the " hemlock society". Even then, they were pushing for the "right to die" cause.

That was over 20 years ago. what was then just a fringe, is now starting to gain public acceptance. sad, isn't it?

Felos is a Ghoul, after watching him for a few weeks and reading about him, this is a man who is deranged. He comes off as someone who is obsessed with the death process and has absolutely no regard for the right to life. When he described the scene in Terri's room after a few days of her dehydration, he considered her suffering as "Beauty upon her"

The man is a Ghoul

I'll not argue that at all!

BTW...what the heck IS Scientology about, anyway. Anyone?

Judge Greer will just rule that no reporter can ask Felos about the Hemlock Society ever again.

I'd bet my life on it.

Tell Xenu, he's not alone. The Hubbardians are about to feel the internet's wrath...

It seems to be a positivist approach to religion. Kind of a Vienna Circle meets mysticism.

It's the new communism... it's the new nazism....

It's the promise of a perfect society... free of cripples, retards, half-wits and fat girls. It's westernized, totalitarian self-help. But masquerading as religion as to enjoy the constitutional protections that come along with that designation.

It's the most ambitious, dangerous cult in America. Maybe the world. In light of the past two weeks, I'd say it's a more clear and present danger to our way of life than Islam.

If you believe Satan was behind the Third Reich, well... Satan's learned from past mistakes. Scientology is the Fourth Reich.

And no, I'm not exaggerating.

try lisamcphearson.org for starters. Hope I spelled that right.

Their headquarters are located in Pinellas County.
They are the brainchild of L. Ron Hubbard.

Prepare to be appalled. Basically, they are a cult claiming to be a church. Their tentacles appear to be quite long.

Their pawprints are all over this whole mess. I've only been researching them for a couple of days. Thanks to the links from FReeper Diogenesis, among others.

Money.

L. Ron did it for the money and notariety, period.

Like everything else in his "official" history, it is a fraud.

BTW, anyone know who won the Elron award last year? It is (or used to be anyway) handed out at the World Science Fiction Convention to the SF/F writer most deserving of the term "hack". Guess who it was named for.

Carl Sagan wrote that L. Ron Hubbard, an athiest and a bad science fiction pulp writer - told him that Jesus didn't do anything so great - and that he (Hubbard) could invent a religion that was more successful than Christianity. Evidently, scientology grew out of that bet.

BTW, I am a fan of good science fiction, and have only read 4 or 5 of the Hubbard books that were given to me - I wouldn't even buy them at a used book store - and his books are not good science fiction, not even decent scifi.

Do a Google Search on "Scientology" and be ready to be shocked.

John Travolta and many other Hollywood celebrities are card carrying members of the Church of Scientology
