NIGHTLY dance shows outside an NYC federal lock up is a “cover movement” for Nxivm boss Keith Raniere, reports say.
They have supposedly been dancing outside the Metropolitan Detention Center to support inmates – but reports said it’s actually for the sick self-help sex guru.
Raniere, 59, is currently awaiting sentencing at the Brooklyn jail on multiple charges, including racketeering, sex trafficking and forced labor conspiracy.
He is a convicted sex trafficker from Halfmoon known as “Vanguard” within his fanatic cult-like organization.
They’ve met every night outside the facility since July 3.
“It’s a cover movement for Keith Raniere — it’s a Trojan Horse,” said Mark Vicente, who used to be high up in Nxivm before testifying against Raniere at his 2019 trial.
“Why are all the key figures Raniere loyalists? This is all in tribute to Raniere.”
On Tuesday, more pirouetting people associated with this group were spotted swaying outside the jail but refused to reveal why they were there.
“If you make this about a sex cult, again, that’s dishonesty,” a blue bandanna-wearing man told the New York Post.
“[It’s “a nightly dance demonstration … to remind those inside [the jail] they are not forgotten,” another jiver insisted.
Their website doesn’t feature anything relating to Raniere or Nxivm.
The Post noted that there were signs which said “We miss you Kay Rose” and “Love U Kay Rose,” which the Union reported was code for Raniere’s initials.
But ex-members of Nxivm, which was based in Albany, New York, conceded that it would be hard to know who is actually familiar with the cult.
Last June, Raniere was convicted of running a secret society within Nxivm called DOS.
Female members were branded with a script created by Raniere and forced to have sex with him.
It’s a cover movement for Keith Raniere — it’s a Trojan Horse.
But Vicente told the paper that at least six people leading the dancers are well-known well-known members of NXIVM.
He also said their social media followers make up a “Who’s Who of the Nxivm World.”
He’s afraid that people with loved ones in jail aren’t aware of the insidious motivation behind the innocent-seeming dancing.
But a female member insisted that “it’s for all the friends and family who have people inside.”
“This is really just about providing entertainment for guys who have been on lockdown for months and haven’t been able to have visitors and see their families, so that’s what it’s about,” she told the Union.
There was no answer when The Sun called a number associated with the organization on Wednesday morning.
The group didn’t immediately respond to an email request for comment.
