Raniere’s brain ‘sets off radar detectors’ claim challenged

According to some of his followers, and as reported in the Albany Times Union February 24, 2012 “Raniere has convinced some followers he doesn’t drive because his intellectual energy sets off radar detectors.”

It is true that he rarely drives and has no driver’s license. When he has to go somewhere he is driven usually by a female disciple.

So as further proof of the low intelligence of some of his female followers: “Raniere has convinced some followers he doesn’t drive because his intellectual energy sets off radar detectors.”

These same women know he rides in cars.

How do the radar detectors know not to go off when he is in the passenger seat?

Just like he told women they would bear his female avatar baby, or that he made it rain on only his partner and not on him, or that he tied the state record for the 100-yard dash, or he understood computers when he was 4 years old, he tells someone: radar detectors go off because of his intellectual energy.

And someone believes it.

Believers are what make up a cult.

They’re not believers. They’re “sheople”, sheep-people. Belief is often justified and knowledge is justified true belief.

Raniere talks about data a lot. But he simply dismisses all the negative data against him as unethical. Sure dude. People are just out to get you because you’re having such a tremendous impact on the world taking on the status quo while hiding in your cult “compound” fucking at night and playing volleyball making your women do all the work for you. Here’s some knowledge. The greater the number of people independently corroborating the negative things about you, the lesser the chance of a conspiracy to get all the “data” right. Just ask Bill Cosby.

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.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
