What happens when they start doing the same on the Internet?
The Orwellian social media platform called Instagram recently banned a second work of art by MK10ART.
The drawing found to be offensive showed Nancy Salzman dressed as Hitler standing next to Raniere.
The censors at Instagram perhaps did not understand that the picture was not endorsing Nazism but was attacking the teachings of NXIVM and Keith Raniere.
Raniere once told Salzman that she was Adolf Hitler in her past life.
Quoting the Frank Report, this is what was written with the now banned painting on Instagram before it was removed:
“For some time, Mr. Raniere informed his followers that in addition to having Nazis [in their past lives] as his disciples, he also had a number of people who were Nazi victims – mainly Jews who were exterminated in concentration camps. At one time, he identified Nancy Salzman and others as former Jewish victims.
“But on one day, The Vanguard made a stunning revelation.
“Barbara Jeske asked him directly who among us is Adolf Hitler?
“And Mr. Raniere revealed that it was Nancy Salzman who in her past life was Adolf Hitler.
“Since The Vanguard teaches he is infallible, Ms. Salzman, who had been previously told she was a Jewish concentration victim, now realized how much she owed Mr. Raniere for saving her from her terrible karma and, according to sources, resolved to be forever in his debt out of the great appreciation she had for him saving her.
“Nancy Salzman became deeply indebted to Mr. Raniere for his willingness to absolve her of her tremendous crimes as Hitler in her former life.
“Is there another savior in history who was willing to transform the souls of the greatest sinners?”
Now it appears that MK10ART has two strikes and perhaps will soon be out.
“It seems that artists do not have freedom of expression anymore. Instagram just banned my painting of KAR + Nazi Nancy. ” MK10ART told Frank Report.
It is not clear why the painting of Nazi Nancy and the one below of Allison and Creepy Keith was banned by Instagram, but we are now living in a world where giant social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are censoring the work of writers and artists.
What would happen if, based on the same ‘righteous’ principles, those who control the entire internet decide to also control content?
With newspapers and print magazines vanishing, will we wind up losing the First Amendment and freedom of the press?
Instagram says the painting violated their policy on ‘harassment and bullying”
Obama gave away US control of the Internet in 2016
Without seeking approval from congress, President Obama transferred control of the internet address system to an international governing body.
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a not-for-profit organization, located in Los Angeles, California was authorized by the U.S. government to oversee domain names for websites and individual IP addresses for internet users.
Obama said it made sense to transfer control of ICANN to an international community.
Opponents argued the transition was a mistake because it could lead to authoritarian governments getting control over the internet. ICANN is no longer bound to uphold the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment.
Presently ICANN rules bar the organization from using its power to control internet content, or withhold or cancel domains if they don’t like the content.
Now that foreign governments control, the rules can be changed.
Member governments must agree on policy changes and the US also has a vote.
By the way, MK10ART., not to be cowed by the censors at Instagram painted another portrait of Nazi Nancy. We will see if that one is banned also.
i love their art. it always amuses me because it’s heartfelt about upsetting things and it’s inspiring to see anyone care that much too. i like their posts on IG every once in a blue moon. it’s almost like a comic strip of the organization. i can’t even imagine how they’d react to it :’D
Wow Nancy Salzman as Hitler kind of looks like Scott Johnson!!!!
Scott Tex2 you should try glasses it could be a good look for you!!!
How do you know whether I already wear glasses?
Wow Nancy Salzman as Hitler kind of looks like Scott Johnson!!!!
Except you don’t have a clue what I look like.

“…the painting violated their policy on ‘harassment and bullying’”
First, I’m quite certain such art is protected 1st amendment expression — Incitement to violence, sedition or intentional injury are not. You can’t say or do anything these days that doesn’t offend somebody. Instagram, FaceBook, Twitter, Google et al are all using capricious and vaguely defined “community guidelines” to censor content they don’t like. It’s happening with increasing frequency — and in this case likely some cognitive and passion impaired NXIUMists likely red flagged you.
Secondly, one has to wonder how you harass and bully cold hearted bullies engaged in sex slavery & trafficking, pedophilia extortion and profound physical and psychological abuse of vulnerable and innocent women and children — sans any discernible trace of remorse, contrition or regret — apart from being caught. Malignant narcissistic personality disorder beyond comprehension.
That said, it would seem necessary and appropriate for someone to harass these miscreants with hard reality and hurt some feelings — assuming that’s even possible.
MK10ART’s imagery hauntingly captures the deep darkness and heinous reality in a way words fail to adequately express. My son (a lawyer) thinks you have an actionable first amendment claim — but it also depends upon venue & judge – and possibly some significant legal forces aligned against you. At any rate thanks for using your talent to help expose the truth.
Remember Frank’s “good friend” Ben Szemkus who he felt deserved to have his story shared on his blog. Well apparently Frank Parlato was holding out on us. According to good old Ben — Frank and his good friend Roger Stone were also at the recruitment party along with Catherine Oxenberg and India Oxenberg. Who knew the Oxenberg’s were a part of NXIVM 4 years before they actually joined. Frank — did you ever share that you were there too? LOL
MkArt getting censored like this does not bode well for the future of free speech and the first Amendment. An Orwellian world is not so bad the crime will be zero.
The geniuses (????????) at Instagram are too dense to understand that MK10Art is NOT promoting Nazism.
Mk10 ART is making fun of Raniere’s asinine teachings and the infinite gullibility of Raniere’s followers.
One of the funniest scenes in the movies is from Mel Brooks’ “The Producers” where they put on a musical production of “Springtime for Hitler.”
Mel Brooks is Jewish as were most of the cast in the original 1968 movie.
Gene Wilder, Zero Mostel and Dick Shawn are all Jewish.
Would the geniuses (???????) at Instagram claim that Mel Brooks was promoting Nazism?
Of course Instagram would claim Brooks was promoting Nazism. We live in a “politically correct,” snowflake world (and extremely liberal/anti-conservative) in the major social media mainstream media network platforms now. However, there are numerous alternate social media platforms that would accept what is artistic impression/expression of a scam, so start using them instead of simply b!tching about it. Instagram takes Christ on a cross in a glass of piss with glee, here’s some that would take this art: Freetalk, Codias, MeWe, and mobile.co. Others are welcome to add others to this list. The liberal media platforms will fail when the only ones using them are liberals. Liberals don’t have the money needed to support the advertising on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.
I agree. Don’t forget Mel Brooks’s Blazing Saddles and the satire used to attack racism with comedic wit.
The censors would completely block that film as well.
She can always send her artwork to Frank Report and Artvoice. Fuck instagram. The liberal left want control of everything. Pieces of shit.
Obviously, you have not been informed: Only Trump is allowed to be called Hitler.
