I wouldn't count on it.

Bangkok: Rainbow Cultural Garden no worse than any religious sect school – like Amish or wackadoodle Christian schools

By One Night in Bangkok

With all due respect, the Rainbow Cultural Garden seemed rather benign after reading this author’s account.

It was basically a center for ‘home schooling’ and ‘day care’ combined into a single package, catering primarily to kids of rich NXIVM parents.

Not sure that’s a big deal.

Sure, those kids may have wasted a lot of time learning ‘worthless bits’ from 7 languages, but that’s not exactly the worst evil I’ve heard about. Much ado about nothing, it sounds like.

There’s plenty of wackadoodle Christian/Religious sects which have their own ‘home schooling’ or ‘day care’ programs that are just as weird as this, teaching kids all kinds of wacky beliefs.

What about the Amish? Their own kids learn to live like it’s still the 3rd century BC, yet nobody has any problems with that. It’s hurting the kids yet we have no issues with it.

Same is true with NXIVM kids.

Just because this ‘author’ claims that the nannies weren’t well qualified for teaching languages, that doesn’t make them any worse than the unqualified teachers from other religious sect schools.

Until I see EVIDENCE (a real witness) who can testify that these kids at Rainbow were taught about sex, then it’s nothing more than worthless speculation. This author sounds as if they’re just regurgitating stuff they heard about Keith, but never actually witnessed.

If this author NEVER witnessed the sex teachings claimed in the final sentence, it’s just worthless speculation. They’re just giving an ‘opinion’ of something they never witnessed, thus making it worthless commentary from the Frank Report.

Anybody can offer an opinion.

This author taught at Rainbow, yet she NEVER witnessed any sex teachings? Yet this same author ‘suspects’ that Rainbow was a sex teaching center to recruit kids for Keith? That’s kinda contradictory.

This author sounds like they never witnessed anything bad at Rainbow, yet they desperately want to believe that Rainbow was bad.

Sounds like a nothing-burger to me, Frank.

If Rainbow was catering to the general public (non-NXIVM kids), then I’d see a real problem with it. But that’s not what they were doing. They were catering to NXIVM kids, much like Amish or Christian sects who cater to their own kids — often teaching them weird and outdated belief systems.

Not much to see here, Frank.

Please convince me that you have something more substantial, Frank.

  • From what I read, the nannies were not teaching the children anything, just talking in their native language to the children.

  • To the best of my knowledge, neither the Amish nor the Christian schools forbid the parents from witnessing or questionng the educational processes.

  • One question/clarification that may or may not support Bang’s point: based on Miss X’s post – outside of the language portion, there was no formal curriculum that was taught to the children at any age, is that correct? If so, could a different babysitter each day that spoke a different language with no set lessons teach kids about early sex? Could it be maybe not directly but indirectly – the same way our young kids pick up our political leanings from overhearing conversations?

    I suppose it isn’t a simple answer considering the age of the kids and level of involvement of the parents and whether or not they were on the stripe path. Was RCG supposed to tap out at a certain age and then a more traditional education model introduced? I am curious what the long term trajectory for RCG kids was/is supposed to look like.

    • “If so, could a different babysitter each day that spoke a different language with no set lessons teach kids about early sex?”

      According to Jane the DOS chick, Girls By Design was Kreuk and Mack’s attempt to teach girls early about a “feminist approach to BDSM”.

  • Oops. 🙂

    I forgot to include one final point in my comments about the Rainbow School curriculum.

    The reason that Rainbow Schools were a failure (at teaching children languages) is NOT because kids can’t learn languages, it’s PURELY because they hired unqualified staff (idiot teachers) who had no business teaching languages to kids.

    These ladies were more like baby-sitters than teachers. They were recruited from the bottom-rung of possible candidates. These teachers, such as Miss X, were basically the dregs of teaching society.

    I mean, think about it… You can already tell from her comments that Miss X was probably an unqualified idiot who had no business teaching kids.

    *The very fact that she hated Keith and viewed him as a pervert BUT STILL took the job (to teach kids) should tell you that she’s a few sandwiches short of a picnic. A smarter person would have REFUSED to take the job if they had such reservations about Keith’s schooling program, or quit immediately once they found out.

    Miss X is not exactly a saint. She took the money even though she didn’t believe in the program. She continued to work there even AFTER she had reservations.

    On the other hand, Heidi did refuse so I must give her credit for that.

    Heidi’s own comments claim that she was approached by Rainbow Schools in an attempt to recruit her as a language teacher for kids. She turned them down, thankfully, but that’s not the point I wish to focus on.

    Even though Heidi has a college degree (in English, I think), I sure as hell wouldn’t trust her to teach ANYTHING to kids since she has already proven — through her many posts here — that her credibility is lacking because some of her conspiracy theories are borderline child-like to the point of absurdity.

    I mean, would you want YOUR KIDS to be taught by a person like Heidi?

    They’d probably come home from school each day talking about Dennis Burke and how every person who passes by the school’s front gates might be a spy working for Dennis Burke or the Arizona Mafia or Salinas, LOL. *Just a little joke.

    All kidding aside, I’d still be hesitant to let a person like Heidi teach kids anything since she promotes many wacky conspiracy theories which no sane person would believe.

    That’s the ‘caliber’ of teachers which Rainbow attempted to recruit. Thus, it’s no wonder that they failed to successfully teach kids languages.

    FACT: Just like there are many high schools with failed academic results, there are also many high schools with superior academic results. The difference is the quality of the staff, not in the idea of learning a particular subject.

    There’s nothing wrong with teaching kids languages IF the parents are willing to let the kids devote the extra time necessary to learning them, as long as the teachers are fully qualified professionals.

  • Interesting that you use the term wackafoodle for Christian yet you leave out other religious groups.
    As a Christian, I’m weary of the license you take. You won’t dare do that to some other groups for fear of retaliation but it’s okay, cause it’s safe, to bash Christians.

    I knew you were a tool before. Now, you cement my opinion of you.

    Why Frank allows you a voice eludes me.

    • — You won’t dare do that to some other groups for fear of retaliation but it’s okay, cause it’s safe, to bash Christians.

      EXCUSE ME. Have you read any of the comments directed towards me?

      Also, my comments are selectively posted. Sometimes they’ll never show, or they won’t appear until some days after they were posted while the venomous diatribes against my origins and beliefs are given free reign.

      • Yes, but you are in a category pretty much by yourself as a self admitted stalker, and a pedophile who interacts with underage girls on the internet. You are not the only one who has to wait for his or her comments to show up. Your such a crybaby spanky. Play that Race card you little bitch !

        • Laughable that you call other people stalkers.

          You stalk me everywhere. You can’t NOT respond to me.

          You sociopaths are so lame with your repetition of lies and your projection.

          And no one said anything about just waiting for posts to show up. They said waiting for posts to show up sometimes days after they were posted or not at all. Learn how to read.

      • Your religion is extremely violent and intolerant against others. 👳💣 We resent Islam, it’s draconian practices, it’s supporters and deranged apologists.

        • Religions can’t be violent because they’re just belief systems. They have no power to engage in violence.

          Nevertheless, man doesn’t need religion to be violent. He’s done well enough on his own throughout history. “Secularist humanism” has produced the most violent and bloodthirsty century (the last one) in all of human history. And when taken to the extent of its philosophical reach, atheism ultimately ends in nihilism, and therefore its proponents really have no moral basis to critique others. If everything is relative and subjective, then you have nothing to argue with. That is why Nietzsche said “God is dead”. He knew exactly what that meant. Unfortunately, most of the stupid new atheists and their shills don’t.

          Look at how you behave on this website.

          Regardless, my religion is irrelevant to its content, serves only as a red herring, and is merely used by you to troll and an attempt to incite.

          • I read the first paragraph of your bullshit (barely) then thought “fuck it”.

            Point is thus: the amount of carnage and horror inflicted on other human beings in the name of Islam is huge. The Quran itself is full of violent intent against non Muslims.

            For you to say religion can’t be violent because it’s a “belief system” don’t cut the halal mustard Abdul. A belief system that encourages violence is violent. How can Islam be the “religion of peace” 🤣 when religion can’t be peaceful, religion is a “belief system”? Silly liberals and apologists…

            Video games that show a ton of violence are referred to as violent. It’s no different than you – Ali Baba, saying a song can’t be romantic because it’s just a song or cancer can’t be aggressive because it’s a disease.

            Writing a novel in response will not change these facts.

          • You have no point or facts. You talk in absurd, anti-religious, anti-Muslim generalizations.

            The Qur’an has never encouraged violence as a general principle against people who don’t follow its way of life. Muslims also have never believed that “Islam is a religion of peace”, which is a phrase made famous by GWB post the 911 attacks, who then proceeded to form a coalition of Western and non-Western allies to decimate an entire country and kill over one million Iraqis for ~3K American deaths, creating a vacuum for religious extremists groups such as ISIS. Islam has always considered itself a holistic religion, and so it deals with times of peace and times of war. It’s also not a “turn your other cheek” or pacifist religion, it’s a “do not oppress and do not be oppressed” religion. Mercy means absolutely nothing without its paired concept of justice. It also doesn’t believe in or promote vigilantism, but state-instituted application of justice by those who are knowledgeable.

            I don’t want to read your de-contextualized bullshit.

            Also, don’t talk to me about Islam encouraging violence when non-Muslim history is wrought with it throughout Europe and Asia against their own peoples and the rest of the world.

          • Nothing you say can change facts spanky. Muslims are among the most intolerant people on earth. Ideology + Violence = terrorism. I have read the death book and there are numourous references that encourage and accept violence to non Muslims. Some say 109 verses of violence. Muslims will always make excuses for their cancer, like you are doing now. Islam is their identity and are threatened by anything or anyone who calls it out. Irrational baffons. On top of your inability to accept criticism of Islam, you cannot stand any criticism of Kristin Kook because you are sadly emotionally obsessed with her. Those of us who aren’t brainwashed by Islam and who don’t want to pork Kristin Kook have the ability to logically criticise both as we are not emotionally involved.

            “Also, don’t talk to me about Islam encouraging violence when non-Muslim history is wrought with it throughout Europe and Asia against their own peoples and the rest of the world.”

            Non Muslims don’t kill their own kind in the name of a violent religion spanky. Wars were fought for land, resources, power etc. Not in the name of allahspank.

            You lose.

          • –Nothing you say can change facts spanky.

            No one can change facts, including you. But what you say doesn’t make them facts. In fact, it likely makes them less so coming from your heart and mind to your mouth or keyboard. Facts are also different from the notion of Truth.

            –Muslims are among the most intolerant people on earth.

            Yawn.

            The notion of tolerance is relative, e.g., liberals are tolerant of LGBTQ lifestyles, while conservatives are not. Everyone is intolerant of certain beliefs and actions.

            Tolerance has nothing to do with the idea of morality. A person can be tolerant of everything. The word doesn’t mean anything outside of a context or frame of reference.

            –Ideology + Violence = terrorism.

            Ideologies aren’t limited to religions you buffoon. If this was the case, then any war is state-sponsored terrorism.

            Gawd, shlock you’re dumb.

            –I have read the death book

            Yeah right. You’ve most likely only read some scattered verses here and there.

            –and there are numourous references that encourage and accept violence to non Muslims. Some say 109 verses of violence.

            Out of approximately 6236 verses, 109 would make 1.74% of the total. That means approximately 98% of them don’t have anything do with violence.

            Well there goes the notion of the Qur’an of being a violent book in general. Do you even think before you post?

            –Muslims will always make excuses for their cancer, like you are doing now.

            You just can’t stop with the absurd generalizations.

            –Islam is their identity and are threatened by anything or anyone who calls it out.

            What’s your identity? Being a stalking, bigoted, lunatic?

            –Irrational baffons.

            Look who’s talking.

            –On top of your inability to accept criticism of Islam, you cannot stand any criticism of Kristin Kook —

            It’s never been a question of the acceptance of criticism.

            –because you are sadly emotionally obsessed with her. Those of us who aren’t brainwashed by Islam
            and who don’t want to pork Kristin Kook have the ability to logically criticise both as we are not emotionally involved.

            How many times are you going to recycle this claptrap? By definition, rational argument is impartial, disinterested, and hence emotionally detached. Motivations are emotionally driven, but logic is not.

            Nevertheless – and once again for the umpteenth time – the same argument applies to you, except you’re a hater so this fact makes you even less immune to emotional attachment since hate is the most corrosive emotion in existence.

            –Non Muslims don’t kill their own kind in the name of a violent religion spanky. Wars were fought for land, resources, power etc. Not in the name of allahspank.

            What does the reason or motivation as to why people kill each other have to do with the fact that they’re just as violent or even more so? That was the point of contention.

            –You lose.

            The only statement I might take seriously by you since you lose often so you must know what it feels like.

          • Awww, poor spanky can’t win an argument. Instead he has another aspergers hissy fit meltdown and writes a fucking short story that STILL doesn’t change facts. Islam is cancer. What’s the punishment for denouncing Islam spanky?

  • Bangcock left out two important facts the school was run as a for profit school and allegedly paid no taxes and, or was allegedly laundering money from Nxivm’s wealthiest clients.

    Bang baby once again you missed the boat…..I am sorry… I thought you mentioned in your attack article on my impromptu comment/article that you were going to busy and not posting on Frankreport for sometime?

    Did your larping tournament get cancelled? Or did mom and dad decide not to suspend your internet access for not vacuuming the house; because your like over 40 + years old?

    “Stay gold”, Bangcock. You have not matured since the 80’s ..

  • Why did you post this crap Frank?
    I know you can discredit every bullshit point with your eyes closed, as can I – but he’s not worth anyones’ time.

    This is not a case of free speech, any more than yelling FIRE in a theatre.

      • Frank,

        I agree with Frank’s publishing of alternative or opposing viewpoints. Frank’s take on publishing dissenting view points is important.
        Only through debate and the questioning of perspectives and ideas can the truth be illuminated.

        Frank’s policy of publishing falls under the old school of Socratic philosophy.

        Question everything.

        As a Bonus….

        Frank is protecting the First Amendment rights of all; unlike so many social media networking websites.

        Freedom comes with a cost…. you have to put up with a ton of assholes!!!!

      • BULLSHIT, assume your lack of reponsibility, with this kind of articules you betray your audience, you should be indictated too…. claim abuse of power and you are doing the same

        • How does Frank betray his audience with this kind of articules [sic]? Printing a story does not equal agreeing with what is in the story. On what grounds should Frank be indictated [sic] for? What “power” is in a website? Have you always been this stupid, or did you have to work at it?

  • Those Amish kids get a better education than most get in public school.
    You have strong opinions about things you know nothing about

  • While it isn’t illegal to mess with kids’ brains/development like this, it is much worse than other schools that at least don’t confuse them with multiple languages and keeping their parents’ from bonding to them. If the NXIVM parents are so “all in” and decide to be gouged on prices, it’s their decision. However, the double books is where NXIVM crossed the legal line, so it is much worse than any other schools that don’t do that. A$$HOLE.

  • I think it will come out that you don’t know your ass from a hole in the ground when it comes to what the Rainbow Cultural Centers were really about. No surprise there.

  • One thing you said is right: Everybody has an opinion. I disagree that Christian schools are harmful. BYU and Notre Dame are both religious schools that turn out some of the brightest. Rainbow taught in 7 languages and nobody knows what may have been taught in those languages. That may or may not be harmful, especially since the teachers and school were NXIUM based.
