Ron Miscavige, a man with no control over his mouth, no control over his thoughts, no control over his mind, says and does things that are not only politically incorrect, they are morally wrong and indefensible. This is from some of those who suffered his emotional abuse.
“Ron Miscavige was a misogynist. He treated women around him with disdain. On this count, to illustrate Ron’s proclivity for insults and offensiveness, some real live examples are in order. He introduced Golden Era’s local public relations officer as “Ladies & Gentlemen, she dances on one leg, she dances on the other, and in-between she makes her living.” Can you imagine? And for me, I mean, I’m Jewish and he would call me behind my back, the Jew bitch.”—DS
“As the only woman in the Music Department, he treated me horribly. I am Italian and he made fun of how I speak, my accent, and called me “Guinea.” That was one thing. Then he would constantly argue with me and provoke me so I would get upset. Then when I did get upset, Ron would push me against a wall and try to scare me, many times. Or Rob would huff around and knock things over or throw a chair, again to scare me. I avoided being alone with Ron as much as I could. Other times he would treat me demeaningly by throwing things on the floor, especially in our kitchenette, and leaving it for me to clean up, implying that I was a woman so I should clean up after him.”—GS
“When I started to work with Ron Miscavige, who was the 3rd trumpet player in the Golden Era Band, I was aghast at how nasty he was to me and to the other band members, many of whom had a longer list of creds than me! I was known by the professional music directors I worked with as always being spot on in pitch and rhythm when I sang, but Ron constantly harped at me for singing flat and telling me how I didn’t know anything about music. Ron would do this at rehearsals in front of the band and when we had a guest singer or musician. He would never hold back in putting me down. Ron was always loud and unpleasant in his carping, which would be embarrassing and demeaning if you didn’t know this is how bad mannered Ron actually is. Ron would denigrate a wonderful singer we worked with and say things like “That black b—-h,” “The picaninny,” “…her black a—,” all delivered in a very unkind way. He never said any of these things to her face, but when she was not there, Ron would say unkind racial slurs about her.”—LG

“As for Ron’s dealings with me in particular: I’m an African-American woman and was in my mid-20s and 115-118 lbs at the time I met Ron. As a back drop, I LOVE helping and working with people, all people. That is partly why dealing with Ron was shocking to me. Ron was slighting and rude towards me personally and seemed to exude a chronic grudge (later I found out that he had been heard on many occasions making racial slurs). I consider myself quite easy to get along with so I was at a loss as to why Ron treated me this way.
Simple conversations with Ron went out of control. For example, when asking Ron about his study attendance he got extremely upset, and without explanation as to why, he literally started talking to me in a tone of hatred, with gritted teeth, saying “YOU SON OF A B - - - -! YOU F - - - - - - C- -T, YOU LITTLE F - - - - - - B - - - -, YOU MOTHER F - - - - -!” At first I was stunned and a bit nervous. But I wanted to resolve this upset and told him that I was willing to accept that I had said something upsetting to him, but that I would like him to also be willing to view his part in this upset. At that he literally charged toward me.
Honestly, I didn’t think Ron’d do anything as I was a slight woman at the time. But I was wrong about this, and he pushed me up against the door. The gentleman witnessing this pulled him off of me before he could do anything else saying “Ron, she’s a woman!”

He then said again “I DIDN’T TOUCH YOU, YOU GOT THAT!?” This was totally bizarre. I didn’t answer and rode over it as all I cared about at the time was handling the upset. As I said, there was a gentleman in the room at the time who stopped Ron from doing anything further. I later found out that the gentleman had filed a complaint that same day on Ron’s attack on me.”—KS
Nothing justifies such abuse. Ron Miscavige doesn’t seem to understand that his actions are entirely unacceptable in any forum. The only forum where such flies is in his own warped mind.
