Tory 'Magoo' Christman, and how Anonymous went from online war to in-real-life pickets - 2018-02-09
We're continuing to mark the 10th anniversary of a stunning series of events that changed Scientology watching forever.
On January 14, it was ten years since Mark Bunker first posted a 9-minute Scientology video interview of Tom Cruise to YouTube which went viral. When Scientology's legal corps tried to get it yanked down, the Anonymous movement declared war on Scientology in an infamous 2-minute video of its own, posted on January 21. And six days later, Mark Bunker made a small bit of history again when he posted a video counseling Anonymous to drop its attacks on Scientology which were illegal or counterproductive. Bunker was dubbed "Wise Beard Man" for that wisdom, and Anonymous and its "Project Chanology" looked for more traditional ways to get its point across.
In fact, by the time Bunker posted his Wise Beard Man message, Project Chanology had announced on January 24 that it was declaring February 10 a day of protest.
