Prem's Propagandist Pilloried
File under: Gurubusting, Satscams and The Siddhi of PR
Prem Rawat, the multi-millionaire con artist who was once known as "Lord of the Universe," has been laughing all the way to the bank since the 70s. Meanwhile, his webmaster and head of PR, Jossi Fresco, has been getting nailed all over the net for appointing himself VP of Whitewashing at Wikipedia. Here's another hammering of the disgraced mouthpiece:
Jossi aka Jossi Fresco is not your usual, everyday Wikipedo admin: day and night, he's also the webmaster and publicist for Prem Rawat, cult leader and Lord of the Universe. (Prem Rawat AKA Balyogeshar, Sant Ji Maharaj, Guru Maharji Ji, Maharaji, Goom Rodgie) Since he became an administrator on the Wikipedia, controlling their pages about Prem Rawat became just part of his job. Jossi doesn't only try to control Prem Rawat pages on the english Wikipedia: he's also signed up for Wikisource, Wikiquote, and a few of the Wikipedias in other languages to make sure they only have nice things to say about his Master. He even signed up to Metawiki to make himself look really serious. As the Wikipedia's Captain Cult, he extends the blessings of his admin powers and experience in gaming the system to other cultists looking for total cult PoV.We wonder if Jossi gets to fly in Rawat's 60-fucking-million-dollar Gulfstream jet; a ridiculously ludicrous expenditure for any organization, let alone a non-profit charity promoting itself as the protector of the poor.
Kinda makes you wonder just how sincere old Prem really is. He's spent hundreds of millions on jets, helicopters and a huge Malibu mansion, all for himself. The guy lives like an emperor, and he's been doing it since he was a teenager, a scamming prodigy in fake gurudom. The saddest thing of all is that people have been falling for it all that time.
Whether the fat kid pimped as Buddha or the fat cat flying his own huge, private jet, Prem Rawat represents the epitome in hypocritical gurudom. Unfortunately, it's all-too-distressingly easy to mask with a little regular PR mojo.
He ain't no Lord of the Universe, but his persistent lording of his various "contributions" is keeping him in the catbird seat. It's the same game Sri Sri is playing, a seemingly unassailable tactic that keeps folks projecting divinity where greed and gluttony prevail.
