Based on the video I posted in Watch Complete Hour Video of Last Night’s Forgotten Ones’ Dance Protest – Captured Before It Was Taken Down, it looks like the Forgotten Ones [AKA weareasyou] have moved to different sides of the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center [MDC] buildings.
Maybe they know where their leader, Keith Alan Raniere, has been moved to – and they’re lining up there now. This suggests that they are dancing not for all the prisoners at MDC but for one prisoner in particular.
While I think the dancers – in order to make this a “movement” are at least ostensibly dancing for all prisoners who suffer from the horrid conditions at MDC, I think it is fair to say that if Raniere was not at MDC, they would not be dancing at all.
As it is, the Forgotten Ones are convening nightly at MDC, albeit not always on the same side of the building, at 8 pm. They dance for an hour to music and then disperse. It has been peaceful dance-protests so far and generally a pretty small attendance.
As I look at their faces, they seem full of love for their exalted leader – and thrilled at times that he might be able to see them. When they were in Nxivm and Raniere was free, they would consider it an honor to be noticed by their leader or spend time in his company.
America’s proudest black slave, Michele Hatchette, began as Allison Mack’s slave. After Mack’s arrest and removal from the DOS group by virtue of her non-contact requirement as part of her bail conditions, Hatchette was made a slave of Mack’s spouse, Nicki Clyne, who she now serves under.
Dr. Danielle Roberts, who will soon be called before the New York State Medical Licensing Board to determine if she should keep her license, has not shown up every day. But when she comes, she literally flips for her master, Keith Alan Raniere.
Dr. Roberts has been accused by the medical board of branding women without informing them that they were going to get the brand that is the initials of her master, Keith Alan Raniere. She evidently told them that it was some kind of earth symbol when she knew full well that it was the initials K-A-R.
That kind of deception – which Raniere insisted upon – may cost her her medical license. It does not seem to have affected her devotion to Raniere, however, and makes one believe that she would do it all again for her glorious master.
Actually, the correct term for Raniere for Roberts is not “master” but “grandmaster.” Her direct slave master is Nicki Clyne. Originally, Dr. Roberts was a slave under Allison Mack. She was transferred to Nicki Clyne. Both Clyne and Mack are slaves to Raniere, which makes Raniere Roberts’ grandmaster.
To take it one step further, any of Roberts’ slaves would then consider Raniere as their “great grandmaster.”
Not to be outdone by her own slave’s gymnastics, Nicki Clyne takes a shot at giving the prisoner[s] above a bird’s eye view, spreading her legs wide, presumably for his/their delectation.
In a recent interview, [see Nxivm’s Eduardo Asunsolo, Appearing on Podcast, Admits Nxivm Connection to MDC Dancers – Calls Out Attorney and Media for Persecuting Nxivm Like Nazis Did to Jews, Nxivm leader, Eduardo Asunsolo distanced the cult from the dance movement, which he says focuses on entertaining inmates while calling for reform of the prison state.
“I just don’t want to make this more on [Nxivm],” he said. “I’m hanging around trying to get to the radio, trying to get to television, only to focus on dancing for the people there.”
He added: “Why are we talking about sexual cults? Why are we talking about things like that? [instead of prison reform.]
Asunsolo claimed that Nxivm was an umbrella company with “great” human potential and that they had programs that could cure OCD [Obsessive-compulsive disorder] that was eliminated due to a “character assassination” of Raniere.
