Shadow: It is high time for Allison Mack to grow up and join the real world

By Shadow State

I watched the whole one hour thirty-four-minute video of the Keith Raniere Conversations with Allison Mack.

It was clear throughout the video that Raniere was playing her like a fiddle and playing her for a fool.

Because Allison Mack is a narcissist who enjoys being the center of attention, Raniere appeals to her need to be adored.

Allison Mack needs to be adored so much that she can not even tolerate the honest criticism of a theater critic.  How terrible if someone booed her during a performance.

The law is not about protecting the fragile ego of an entitled actress. The law is about protecting the rights of the women who were deceived and blackmailed by Allison Mack. The law is about vindicating the rights of the women who were tortured and enslaved by Allison Mack.

It’s high time for Allison Mack to grow up and realize that the world does not revolve around her.

It is high time for Allison Mack to grow up and realize that other people have rights too.

It is high time for Allison Mack to grow up and realize that the world is not a non-stop adoration party for her.

It is high time for Allison Mack to grow up and realize that if she uses her charisma and acting talents to hurt others she will be punished.

For all of the weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth about poor Allison, she willingly victimized other women. Indeed from all of the accounts Allison Mack enjoyed torturing other women.

Raniere understood that deep down Allison Mack is a sadistic woman who is extremely jealous of other women. And the people of NXIVM, not just Raniere, but also the Salzmans and the Bronfmans, read Allison Mack like a book.

Allison Mack could be manipulated into hurting other people in order to feel good about herself. Allison Mack, through love bombing, could be convinced to hurt other people. Indeed Allison Mack would use her charisma and acting talents to dehumanize other women.

When I was a child my parents insisted on teaching me to grow a tough hide and withstand criticism. To grow a thick skin. My parents grew up during the Depression and World War II. They realized that the world is a rough, hard, cold place. They taught me to understand that I would not always be loved and adored. And my parents taught me to be aware of people who bomb me with false flattery and try to manipulate me.

Recently an acquaintance tried to “love bomb” me with complements and false flattery.
As soon as I figured out his angle, after a day, I kicked that clown to the curb.

Should we feel sorry for Allison because her parents failed to teach her that the world is not all candy canes and unicorns?

It is high time for Allison Mack to grow up and join the real world.

Keith Raniere charms the pants off of Allison Mack, more or less literally.

  • If you were asked would you flip the switch, depress the plunger, pull the lever to release the ratchet on the trapdoor, swing the beheading ax, fire the live round, etc ?

    Oh sorry no death penalty for Mack.
    She plead out. Hopefully she’ll get some time in prison. I thought you were going to stop when justice was served on Mack and write about other NXIVM perps. Seems you’re still raging pretty hard against one specific perp among many that played part. For example Salzman,the trusted friend and mentor that lured Edmondson to her branding.

    What is it specifically about Mack that compels this obsession? I didn’t believe what the others had said but it’s not looking good. It actually seems to be getting worse

    • Shadowstate,

      I do not like Mitch Garrity and even I have to agree with Mitch’s last paragraph.

      Shadowstate why not focus in on someone else?

      I like your writing and a lot of other commentors do as well. We all like you.

    • Take it easy on Mr. Shadow, as there are many commenters, and even a recent story, that state Mack should be treated with kid gloves, now that she has plead guilty. Poor little woman, poor innocent victim, poor pampered actress. Mr. Shadow has invested far too much time and effort to back down now.

    • Actually she still has other charges pending trial (not plead guilty or dropped). Not yet revealed which charges she got deal on and what sentences agreed.

      And judges have the right to overturn plea deals in the interest of justice. Judges can just take the guilty plea and sentence as they please. Seldom done since it undermines ability to get plea deals from offenders. Of course judges can be overturned by higher courts and getting overturned on negating plea deal would be kiss of death to judge’s career.

      Plus there is that pesky possibility that the other charges can be amended and enumerated instead of dealt with as a single mass charge. 300 counts of sex trafficking or whatever served sequentially could make for an interesting length of sentence and screw up earliest parole. Think thousands of years. Yes the US courts have on rare occasions done such things.

      We will see what intensity the feds have come the end of the main trial…though we may well be left in the dark as to why. (Like what senator did they attempt to blackmail in treason? etc)

  • Frank continuing to publish Shadow is dangerous ground here.. he is helping to fuel the delusions that Shadow is a journalist helping this case ..
    These articles damage the credibility of Frank Report and are irrespsonsible. Shadow clearly needs help and support to overcome his obsession and certainly not encouragement.

    As you say if something happens Frank will share some accountability.
    The recent how he is going to end her career (legally).
    Stalking the internet finding information on her sister and family.. an article how she “went down on Nicki Cline” are all clear Red flags.
    I’m aware by commenting here further fuels it and further articles. But there needs to be a differentiation between promoting the truth and justice and allowing a mentally ill stalker publish their delusions and obsessions.

    Furthermore Shadows Alison is “evil/the devil” “her Scarlet letter” actually prevent more balanced and logical speculation amongst other visitors..
    To be clear I’m no fan of hers.. and would even be interested on whether there could be a potential link into the elite pizza-gate conspiracy..

    But at present this site is hijacked by one man’s vendetta and obsession…

    Are you Embaressed to continue this rubbish?

    Ball park figure how many pictures of her have you on your computer??

    • Fully agreed, Something bad will happens if he continue to publish this delusionnal psycho…but Frank probably believe that if something happens to Allison, nobody will come after him.
      Wrong! you enable an unstable guy!

  • Shadowstate,

    Allison Mack from today’s date will not be able to act professionally for at least six years…..

  • Shadow, what are you even talking about? She plead guilty and (probably) signed a cooperation agreement. I think you’re bummed she plead guilty. You wanted her to get life in prison for some unknown reason that I suspect isn’t even related to NXIVM.

  • Here we go again..Continue to give this guy the impression that he is right.

    Everything he keep repeating is based on absolutely nothing.

    Only those who know Allison could tell that kind of thing and all of them say strictly the same thing.
    Before Raniere abused her, she was a sane and adorable person.
    This isn’t from her blog or her fans but close friends of her!

    Here, you publish an obsessed 60years old guy with no insight and absurdly enraged against someone he knows nothing about.

    Narcissic and sadistic…you sure know your subject shadowboy.
    The reality is that you say what you feel is true(in your sick mind) instead of sticking with the FACTS. Yeah , i know, Facts is for you like garlic to the vampires.

    BTW you are 60 years old, the only one who should grow up here is you!

    • Who is it who knew Allison who had such impressions of her, and where can we see those accounts for ourselves? If they were published on Mack fansites for consumption by her adoring followers, that’s not exactly exactly an objective and balanced source.

      It also appears that those who knew Allison spent years warning her about her long-term boyfriend Pete, the reported drug addict and very manipulative/abusive failed musician who got her to accept his engagement proposal by having “Will you marry me?” tattooed on his chest. How much do you know about that, and what do you think it says about her having had real troubles all along?

  • I agree. For the four years living next to her, she was not so nice. When she wanted to talk, she was nice. All I saw was her running out of her house very confidant woman.

    • Strangely, it’s very similar the sort of “empowerment” claimed by fundamentalist religious groups, trying to justify traditionalist gender roles including essentially submissive ones for women.

      Raniere was trying to run his own sort of mini FLDS on the Hudson and, bizarrely, attracting women and even men who would have seemed as if they could be categorized more as progressive thinkers, or even urban hipsters.

      Scientology underwent a similar strange drift from an environment dominated by children of the 60s (and, actually, the Beat generation before them) with very open ideas of sexuality, including a prominent member who published a sort of wives’ guide to open marriage, to having evolved an environment that is sexually repressive, though it doesn’t necessarily stress traditional gender roles (which their founder Hubbard did, contradictorily, espouse) except for viewing homosexuality as deviant. Interestingly, that also seems to have evolved during a period when its founder, like Raniere, was becoming increasingly impotent and thus less able to enjoy libertine sex himself.

  • Stalking, whether of the “I love you, I love you” variety or the “I hate you, I hate you” kind, is always creepy. Shadow’s posts, which are the latter, have long since crossed into that creepy, stalky world. Enough.

  • You watched the whole video? You should get some kind of a medal, either that or you’re running for masochist of the year. I could only take 45 seconds of fatty fatty square feet and his effeminate mannerism. What grown man actually talks like that?

  • This writing style is horrific. How many mini paragraphs can be in one short article? I couldn’t get through it.

    • Most likely. Mack was in dream world when she plead guilty with her crybaby act. She thinks “testify and plead guilty on the 2 serious charges with least social stigma — and I will be out on parole in 2-3 years.” Right. Dreams of a technical sociopath (i.e. she has no idea of what normal folk think is proper social behavior).

      She should have asked herself “why the huge stink over stuff that is often passed off as “socially unacceptable kinkiness” but not seriously illegal in a marriage or lovers spat?” In other words, she should have scaled her expected minimum sentence in proportion to what feds are seeking on Rainere.

      So pretty sure that in the end we find out there is another whole level to this. Think Mack the “Breaking Bad” version. The area of Mexico was a CARTEL controlled area for instance. And there are hints that NXIVM got potential blackmail material on VIP politicans (even members of US Congress/DOD/etc)…and the assumption by feds would naturally be that NXIVM would use it. So possible treason concealed from public but still punished as such by blowing up alternate charges that normally let slide.

      The underaged are a recent nail in the coffin. I am 50/50 on if its true. Not an unknown behavior for Hollywood. Mack might be too open-minded to care. But McCarthyism style federal action is also reborn (anything to sink those you see as potential political enemies — possibly “a leak of poorly investigated material” to slant the public and trial). Its not a good trial if there is not a threat of it turning into lynch mob.
