Reader submits cruel artwork of Bronfman/Raniere

This photo-shopped ‘artwork’ was submitted by Mariana Contrares.

While it is cruel, it suggests that the duo who espouse ethics and compassion and spend their time and fortune attacking enemies in unethical and inhumane ways have an entirely hidden and joyful side.

As Keith Raniere observed, “He who has the most joy wins!”

Clare Bronfman uses her inherited wealth to aid Raniere make other people’s lives joyless; together they win through the joy of causing pain through cruel deeds.

Raniere pretends he is a compassionate Buddha which only a few brave ones can understand, as the outside world scoffs and mocks him.

Clare is his sincere and faithful devotee who knows his goodness – like all great goodness – is misunderstood.

The art suggests however that as Raniere is fake, so is Clare Bronfman.

Once alone, they are free to drop the pretense. Having found joy in punishing enemies, deceiving followers and uproariously spending millions without reckoning the value, alone, they are free to inflame their sado-erotic natures.

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.
