Open letter to Keith Raniere.

Hey Keith, are you openly conceding by fleeing? For what kind of a leader/god abandons his followers/devotees at a time of adversity?
You said you came here to make the world a better place and all your efforts have been to help and uplift your followers. Then what are you running away from? If you truly believe in what you taught, why don’t you stay behind and fight for what’s right (in your opinion)?
By fleeing, you are confirming that you never believed in what you taught. Everything you did was just a game, to extract benefits, be it money, or power, or sex or something else.
Not just that you didn’t believe in it, you also never took pride in your creation. For what proud self-respecting creator will escape when his creation is being destroyed? If you had pride in yourself and your creations, you would fight until your last breath to save your ingenious teachings and wisdom. But you laughed at them yourself. You are afraid that people can now see through your fakery and are now laughing at you. You fled to hide in shame.
When you tortured all those who defected by abusing the legal system, none of them fled. They all fought and most of them won. They had self respect and truth on their side. But when you suspect that you may be a target of the legal system, you don’t exhibit the courage that many of these women had. This is because you know that you have erred. You know that sooner or later karma will catch up to you. A sinner is always a coward, so I’m not surprised by your lack of courage.

You were right when you said to your followers, ‘We will all go down in history’.  You sure will, not just the way you meant it. But, hey after all you know is that you are a demon. You said so yourself at VWeek 2016.

Good luck to you to go down in history as the worst demon ever in modern era.

  • I’m more curious what people on the inside are being told- don’t assume it’s obvious what is being said within the community. Any insiders know how this new phase is being pitched to the group?

  • A fraud, huckster, charlatan, shyster, snake oil salesman. How many other terms are there? That’s who.

    And a chicken shit.

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.
