As a jury was mulling the fate of alleged serial sexual abuser Bill Cosby earlier this week another story made headlines — again — that provided more evidence that much of Hollywood remains contaminated with degenerates and lowlifes posing as upstanding Left-wing elites.
You may recall in late March that the FBI arrested Keith Raniere, the leader of an alleged “sex cult” calling itself NXIVM (pronounced NEX-ee-um) that was based in upstate New York on charges of sex trafficking and forced labor.
As The Daily Wire reported:
Allegations against Raniere, called “Vanguard” by his followers, have been circulating for months, with multiple reports connecting Raniere to former “Smallville” star Allison Mack, 36 … who is allegedly a member of the group and partner with Raniere in his criminal activities. The Albany Times Union reports that Mack is identified in the complaint as an “unnamed co-conspirator.”
That report followed an October New York Times story describing NXIVM as a “self-help organization” that was “created to empower women.” The Times noted that women who joined the “secret sisterhood” were required to provide their recruiter, or “master,” with naked photos or other compromising material on the pledge that if they outed the organization the pictures would be revealed publicly.
Now, new details have emerged regarding Mack’s level of involvement, some of the high-profile actresses she was pursuing to become members of this sick and twisted enclave, and on what basis she was making her invitations.
In a separate report, The Daily Wire’s James Barrett notes that, according to a whistleblower, Mack — who has also been arrested and appeared in federal court last week — was a “key recruiter” for the cult and helped to hand-select sex slaves for Raniere.
Mack, who is an alleged victim-turned-victimizer and stands accused of leading Raniere’s secret “sex slave” sorority, approached other would-be victims claiming she wanted them to be a part of a “women’s movement.”
For example, Mack sent a pair of tweets to English actress Emma Watson, who had a co-starring role in the Harry Potter films, in 2016, likely due to her much-publicized feminism. In the first tweet Mach describes the sorority as “an amazing women’s movement,” though authorities claim it used brainwashing, blackmail, threats and even torture.
“I’m a fellow actress like yourself & involved in an amazing women’s movement I think you’d dig. I’d love to chat if you’re open,” she tweeted. (Related: Hollywood cesspool bombshell: Matt Damon, Russel Crowe pressured NYT to bury story on Harvey Weinstein’s serial abuse of women.)

About one month later Mack reached out, via Twitter, once again to Watson: “I participate in a unique human development & women’s movement I’d love to tell you about. As a fellow actress, I can relate so well to your vision and what you want to see in the world. I think we could work together. Let me know if you’re willing to chat.”
It isn’t clear whether Watson responded — via social media or some other way — but there are no reports indicating she took Mack up on her offer.
In addition, as reported by the U.K.’s Daily Mail, Mack also reached out to singer Kelly Clarkson a couple of years earlier, but then she kept her invite really vague by saying only that she’d love to “chat sometime.”
“I heard through the grapevine you’re a fan of Smallville. I’m a fan of yours as well! I’d love to chat sometime,” Mack tweeted in July 2013.
As to her charges, U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue said in a statement: “As alleged in the indictment, Allison Mack recruited women to join what was purported to be a female mentorship group that was, in fact, created and led by Keith Raniere. The victims were then exploited, both sexually and for their labor, to the defendants’ benefit. This Office and our law enforcement partners are committed to prosecuting predators who victimize others through sex trafficking and forced labor.”
And people in Hollywood think folks in the American Hinterlands are strange.
