Women Killed by Mexican Cartel Connected to NXIVM Sex Cult

Crisis on Infinite Earths is only about a month away and pretty much everyone who was in any sort of DC TV show or movie is going to be involved in some way. Burt Ward, Kevin Conroy, Tom Welling, Erica Durance and more stars from DC shows past will be on set. Of course, there’s one major figure from DC’s history who won’t be playing any reindeer games: Chloe Sullivan.

Allison Mack is current awaiting sentencing for her involvement in the NXIVM sex cult, and even if she was available, “sex cult leader” doesn’t look great on a resume.

Still, I feel bad for Mack. I had long suspected she was essentially brainwashed by cult leader Keith Raniere, and that suspicion was basically confirmed by Sarah Edmondsonthe whistleblower who helped law enforcement take the cult down in an interview with Hollywood Life.

Keith told Mark essentially that he was trying to break Allison. He would often do things to really break down your need to be liked or to have attention. He’d say things like, “imagine that everyone in the world hates you.” This was the kind of thing he would do on a regular basis. So I think, just knowing him, and now with his history of abuse and manipulation so clear, that he just wanted to destroy Allison and so I think that no one else (in the sex cult) may have known that the initials were there on purpose, but I think that everything he did had a meaning.

Allison was in a position of power, but she was also very much a victim of Keith Raniere, too. Luckily, she made it out of this with her life. Nine women murdered in Mexico with ties to the cult were not as lucky.

Most news reports about the murders mentioned that they were members of a weird or an offshoot religion, but the New York Post reported that they have ties to NXIVM.

The outpost Mormon community in Mexico is where underlings of Nxivm leader Keith Raniere recruited young women to work as nannies in an upstate New York compound run by the accused cult — suggesting at least in part that the jobs would get the girls away from their home region’s drug violence, according a man hired by Raniere to produce a documentary about the group.

As Slate reported in May, Raniere had a huge network of associates in Mexico, and these women were apparently part of the community where he recruited his sex slaves. Raniere’s associates in Mexico “included Emiliano Salinas, son of former President Carlos Salinas, and Rosa Laura Junco.”

I mean, it’s probably just a tragic coincidence that these women were killed by a drug cartel who confused women and children for other violent drug dealers.

Of course, if I was planning on murdering someone in Mexico, I’d probably make it look like it was done by a cartel. Just like if I was going to murder someone in prison before he could expose a worldwide pedophile network servicing the rich and powerful, I’d make it look like he killed himself and call anyone who saw through my flimsy justification a loony conspiracy nut.

It was probably just the cartels, though.

Also, I’d much rather see Allison Mack back on the CW than Felicity, murderous sex cult or not.
