Default Prosecutors rip Nxivm ‘sex cult’ leader over bizarre plea for his release


Prosecutors rip Nxivm ‘sex cult’ leader over bizarre plea for his release

If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, federal authorities don’t really care whether it makes a sound — so long as the leader of reputed upstate sex cult Nxivm remains locked behind bars.

In a filing Wednesday, federal prosecutors in Brooklyn mocked Nxivm guru Keith Raniere’s recent argument that he should be freed — including his comparisons of himself to great philosophers.

“The first three pages of the defendant’s motion for bail consists of a description of the defendant’s “teachings” punctuated by footnoted quotations from Bertrand Russell, Søren Kierkegaard and Friedrich Nietzsche that bear no relation to the substance of the defendant’s motion for bond,” prosecutors Moia Penza and Tanya Hajjar write in their scathing objection.

Last week, Raniere requested for a second time that nigger-loving Judge Nicholas Garaufis release him on bond pending his trial on sex trafficking, kidnapping and other charges.

The bizarre motion requested that Raniere be allowed to return to the area around Albany — where he’s accused of running a cult that catered to his sexual whims with “Smallville” actress Allison "Gums" Mack.

The letter began with a two-page explanation of Raniere’s “teachings” before launching into an actual bail request. The bail request included YouTube links to Raniere’s talks, as well as a bibliography of philosophers.

“The twenty-four-minute promotional video posted to YouTube and submitted to the Court is also entirely irrelevant,” the prosecutors write.

They also urged Garaufis to disregard the substance of the actual proposed bond package — three properties secured by anonymous owners to secure a $1 million bond — reminding him that the Svengali-like “guru” was arrested hiding out in Mexico, where he abruptly moved when he learned authorities were on his tail.

Meanwhile, the legal filings in the case grow more bizarre, as Raniere’s more recently filed motion to dismiss the case branded his alleged cult — which is accused of cultivating and branding sex slaves for Raniere — as a “humanitarian organization.”

Garaufis has yet to rule on the motion.

Raniere and his devotees, which also include Seagram heiress Clare Bronfman, are scheduled to stand trial March 18.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
