Shadow State: Allison Mack told the truth about branding
October 31, 2018
By Shadow State 1958
I have found photographic evidence suggesting that Allison Mack may have been telling the truth about who introduced branding to NXIVM’s sex slave cult.
In the New York Times, Allison Mack confessed to introducing branding as a requirement to join the VOW, NXIVM’s sex slave component:
“In her apartment, I was surprised to hear Mack take full responsibility for coming up with the DOS cauterized brand. She told me, “I was like: ‘Y’all, a tattoo? People get drunk and tattooed on their ankle ‘BFF,’ or a tramp stamp. I have two tattoos and they mean nothing.’ She wanted to do something more meaningful, something that took guts.”
A lot of people have assumed that Mack was “taking the fall” for Raniere, a “man” devoted to degrading women. However, I found photographic evidence that Mack was all on board for branding women as sex slaves and might indeed have initiated the program herself.
Mack seems to have had inspiration for branding or marking her sex slaves from sources other than Raniere. This evidence was produced and posted by Allison Mack herself:
This photo looks like it was taken at a Comic-Con or fan meeting. Allison Mack is just about hugging the woman.
What is the significance of the date May 2015?
In the superseding indictment, the government dates the time of Raniere and Mack’s sex slave conspiracy as lasting from September 2015 through June of 2017.
COUNT TWO (Forced Labor Conspiracy) 35. In or about and between September 2015 and June 2017, both dates being approximate and inclusive, within the Eastern District of New York and elsewhere, the defendants KEITH RANIERE, also known as “Vanguard,” ALLISON MACK and LAUREN SALZMAN, together with others, did knowingly and intentionally conspire to provide and obtain the labor and services of one or more persons, to wit: lower-ranking DOS members”
It is within the realm of possibility that Mack was so inspired by this fan that she thought branding was a good idea for the NXIVM slaves to show their devotion.
According to the interview with the woman Jane, not only did Raniere avail himself of the sexual services of the slaves, so did Allison Mack.
None of this absolves Raniere of his responsibility, his guilt in running a sex trafficking operation. He was a beneficiary of the sexual services, along with Mack.
Raniere and Mack worked together to operate the sex slavery component of NXIVM.
Allison Mack is not the pure and innocent young woman seduced by some Svengali. She is as guilty as her partner in crime Raniere.
Here are the comments on Instagram on the picture of Allison and the woman with the Chloe Sullivan quote on her arm. See if you can guess where the comments begin after Mack was outed as an alleged sex trafficker.
Allison! Small chance you’ll read this but if you could send me the full picture you took of us, that would be amazing! Maybe DM me on Instagram? Or have someone email me at email@example.com Either way, it was such a pleasure meeting you and Thankyou for being so excited about it! Haha all my best! ❤️
