So apparently, Tom Cruise is currently suing Bauer Media for defamation after it printed some pieces he felt were inaccurate. Most of the time this wouldn’t really be a story, if it weren’t for the fact that this means he has to actually start expressing his world views, which apparently involve tying Bauer Media to Nazi Germany and comparing the treatment of Scientology to how the Jews were treated. RadarOnline reports …

“This relentless defaming of Mr. Cruise and his Church is less surprising now that we have discovered Bauer’s long and disgraceful record of religious hatred any bigotry,” Fields wrote. “This appalling record goes back to the 30s and 40s, when Bauer Publishing was a fawning admirer of Hitler and the Nazis, publishing glamorous portraits of Der Führer … They also published vicious caricatures of Jews that were so popular in Germany at the time.”

“Bauer’s conduct didn’t stop with the war’s end,” he continued. “Since then, it has distributed neo-Nazi magazines, as well as Nazi-themed pornography and has engaged in anti-semitic rants.”

Fields insisted, “Bauer may disguise its present attacks [on Cruise in In Touch and Life & Style magazines] as mere tabloid-style gossip. But it’s really a continuation of the same pattern of bigotry the company espoused under Hitler. Only now, it’s focused on Scientologists rather than Jews and it’s been reformatted to make money from young Americans, while indoctrinating them with Bauer’s current messages of hate.”

Well then. We’re just going to slip out here, because we enjoy not being sued and/or yelled at. Discuss amongst yourselves. Toodles!
