Jemima Khan, once a strong ally of Julian Assange, has lashed out at the whistleblower, comparing him to the father of Scientology L. Ron Hubbard after he criticized a film about WikiLeaks that she produced.
On Wednesday, Khan, who is an associate editor of the New Statesman, wrote a several-page article about her relations with Assange, accusing him of becoming a cult and warning the whistleblower he might end up “tolerating only disciples and unwavering devotion, more like an Australian L Ron Hubbard.”
The negative changes in Assange’s persona are probably a result of his growing fame – “the moment it strikes, it arrests development,” Khan suggested.
She also accused WikiLeaks of the obfuscation and misinformation it was created to fight against, “while its supporters are expected to follow, unquestioningly, in blinkered, cultish devotion.”
