Valerie Emanuel is a United States postal worker who, according to her hate writings on the Internet, takes psychiatric drugs for what she describes as “rage” and “depression.” In addition to posting negative or critical remarks about the U.S. Postal Service, its management, and her co-workers, Emanuel attacks the Scientology religion, its parishioners and their businesses.
Emanuel claims to have been suffering from mental illness since 1994. Her hate campaign against Scientology began in 1997. She began by sending out harassing emails to business people, then, after becoming involved with extremists on the Internet, began posting to an anti-religious newsgroup and participating in hate marches in front of Church buildings disturbing the religious services.
