THE NEW Imperator of Chic Cicero’s HOGD London Temple has launched an attack on former member Nick Farrell.
Alex Sumer has just been elected as a Golden Dawn leader and already it seems that he feels that the job involves attacking and disciplining dissident members of the HOGD.
On his Facebook group announced to the world that he was the Imperator of Chic Cicero’s Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn as if he expected a huge number of people to bow to his new status.
Apparently, the London Temple of the HOGD is nominally under the rule of the Nottingham temple that Farrell created and before he left to form his own group.
Farrell made the grave mistake of crossing Sumner by pointing out that since the Golden Dawn was a school, the Imperator of a GD group did not really rule things, but was to make sure the Praemonstrator (teacher) did not “look like a c*nt by making all the unpopular decisions.”
He said that the GD world was full of people who believed that an Imperator was in charge, but the reality was that in a school the person who dishes out the teaching was really in charge. He cited the example of a school where the Headmaster (Praemonstrator) was the person in charge while the deputy (Imperator) was just the scary person in charge of discipline in a school.
We noted the comment, but saw it as a gag against others in the Golden Dawn who like to call themselves Imperator.
Sumner hit back and sniffed that the chiefs were all equal. Farrell replied that he had no idea that Sumner would take it so seriously and backed down.
Sumner’s was not going to let it go and labelled Farrell as “paranoid” and a carried out “random attacks on people he felt slighted with” and then “passed them off as gags.”
Since comments have come soon after Farrell, somewhat unenthusiastically, has been seen as banning negative posts about David Griffin on his own Facebook group. We asked Farrell if he felt that the HOGD attacks were because of that and he told us:
“I doubt it very much; I get on very well with the HOGD and am close friends with Chic Cicero.”
Did that mean he would continue to help raise money for an Order which clearly thinks he is insane?
“I think this a local thing. I have no plans to stop raising cash for the Ciceros, because a couple of members of their order don’t like me.”
We suspect that David Griffin is rubbing his hands with glee that members of Cicero’s own temple are attacking Farrell, and will no doubt spin it as “see I was right all along… the Ciceros do attack people who try to create any form of peace with me.”
We understand that Farrell has unfriended Sumner because he does not “believe he can trust him any more” What were magical wars like before Facebook.
