At first, the weareasyou group [AKA The Forgotten Ones] sought to hide their connection to Nxivm and their lord and master, Keith Alan Raniere, as they danced nightly in front of the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center where Raniere is in custody awaiting sentencing for sex trafficking, forced labor and racketeering.
After the Frank Report broke the story of their Nxivm connection, other media followed.
Now, one of the leaders of the dance-protest movement, Nxivm member Eduardo Asunsolo, appeared on a podcast called “Good Morning Bushwick w/Bud & Roach.” He then posted his interview to the Forgotten Ones’ website.
In it, Asunsolo said media attention is scaring away people from joining their dancing efforts. He specifically referenced a comment by Neil Glazer, an attorney representing litigants in a federal civil lawsuit against Raniere and 14 of his Nxivm followers.
Glazer’s comment was published in the Albany Times Union. Glazer said it was a “cause for concern” to have so many Raniere supporters gathering in one place.
Asunsolo compared this to the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany.
He said “This has happened through history. This is what has allowed for whole groups of people to be hated and persecuted. You read the Times Union and it says, you know, it’s a concern that such a big number of Nxians are gathering. This is like seven people there that knew each other from those programs. … That’s like what they said about the Jewish people in the 1930s in Europe. You are seeing, in front of your eyes, character assassinations on whole groups.
“I was a teacher in Nxivm and Keith Raniere is my friend. He’s been my friend for 10 years. It’s interesting that if you go and you read the news and you judge the people that appear in the news just by what appears in the news, that’s what happens. That’s why there’s millions of black people in jail because prejudice rendered them defenseless and if we do that again with another group because you call it a sex cult … it’s no different.”
While admitting seven members of Nxivm have been involved in the dances, Asunsolo said others have shown up who have no connection to Raniere.
Generally, the groups that dance each night number from three to a dozen. They have vowed to dance nightly from 8-9 night indefinitely.
I think he is actually right, not about Keith though! But sadly, he doesn’t know any better.
That’s bullshit! It wasn’t a sex cult. It was a Luciferian pedophile cult that built a net of slaves for polítical/economic purposes. If they are not related, they should make it clear, before this scandal. A fucked-up coincidence to have so many nxiams in one place and Raniere. Maybe the police will remember Snyder or the other deaths and finally do something. Hey, Danielle and Porter should be in jail also. They seem so free now… An obvious mistake
Eduardo is a freedom fighter. Keith will be set free. He is only in prison to shine the spotlight on the evil system. As soon as he does that, he will free himself and shine the spotlight on other vital issues such as racism and sexism and then he will lead the world to a higher understanding.
This is the second coming.
“Eduardo is a freedom fighter” Yolanda Cortez
Yolanda, aka Nicki, how is it freedom for women to be turned into sex slaves through blackmail and extortion?
How is it freedom for women to be branded like cattle?
If NXIVM is the Fruit of Multiculturalism, then America is better off without NXIVM and Multiculturalism.
Message to Attorney Glazer.
The real cause for concern is that Nicki Clyne’s group is close to radical groups like Black Lives Matter and Anti-Fa, the folks who gave us nation wide riots and the Seattle CHAZ/CHOP.
I know that Clyne has reached out to Linda Sarsour, a Brooklyn born Islamic radical who advocates female genital mutilation.
NXIVM is transforming itself into an overtly political group aligned with anti-American groups.
He is a hero
Nicki, aka Pea Onyu:
Is Linda Sarsour also a hero?
Doesn’t this Brooklyn born Palestinian activist advocate female genital mutilation?
I wonder if Keith’s mother had his genitals mutilated without his consent. Perhaps that is part of his hatred for women.
I believe Keith Raniere’s mother did a number on his brain and he is stuck with the mind of a 13 year old boy.
To Pea Onyu at 5:28 pm
He is a zero.
And it will remain so forever.
The transparency is good, I have no doubt that MDC and the entire prison system needs fixing.
However, one thing that Eduardo does not understand. Keith Raniere is NOT his friend. Keith is a con man who has robbed Eduardo of 10 years of his life and is continuing to do so for his own enjoyment. And they will never be friends until Keith admits his lies, which is doubtful to ever happen.
He says “you judge the people that appear in the news”. No asshole, a jury judged him and his henchwomen in a court of law. Shame one of the more brainwashed women wasn’t one of them. Brainless jerk.
Do you have any more information on Eduardo? He seems to be begging for the spotlight, I say shine it on him.
Here’s more info on Eduardo. His dancing is a gift for us all to enjoy. His gracefulness will forever be etched in our minds.
I’m surprised Natashka can use such potty language when speaking about such a shining light in our lives.
I was just testing if it would be redacted, honest! I never ever say such things (I have my fingers crossed behind my back).
I think people should throw some coins in a cap on the pavement and show their appreciation for these talents. I hope Eduardo doesn’t sprain anything.
Exactly right. Eddy’s intellect does not allow him to judge for himself. He’s relying on other people to think on his behalf. It’s a widespread affliction on this damned planet!!
I’m fully on the same page as you, Natashka!
