After getting #MeToo'd in 2017 the controversial award-winning comedian turned social activist, Louis C.K. had withdrawn from the spotlight and rumours began to circulate online and in the press. There were rumours that he had travelled to Africa or had died during the BLM protests, but after months of research it became known that he had become a monk and cult leader, and that he and his followers and acquired a large estate in the so-called "Borscht Belt" of the Catskill Mountains. The site had been a former holiday resort, but had now been transformed into a religious commune. Some claimed it was a degenerate and nefarious sex cult funded by Jews, while others discarded this and referred to them as harmless truthseekers with an alternate view on race relations.
In order to get to the bottom of this and confirm or deny the allegations we set out to visit their compound and to talk to the man himself.
Opinion in the nearby town appeared to be heated, though none of the denizens wished to speak to us, or any other outsiders. Only the local sheriff agreed to talk to us, though he had to cut the interview short since he was rather busy at the moment due to the disappearance of two hitchhikers in the nearby Catskill Park. Six young white women had gone missing in the area in the span of just four months. "It began around the time these cultists moved in," the sheriff said. "Of course," he quickly clarified, "I do not mean to insinuate that the two are connected in any way. The two events merely happened to coincide."
With our worries thus put to rest we began on our journey towards the cult's estate in good spirits, eager to speak to the now so reclusive comedian. As we drove along the road we could not help but notice that a great number of houses appeared to be empty and boarded up, while others had for sale signs put up.
A long, winding dirt road cut through the densely forested wilderness for miles and miles. After a while we reached our destination and were greeted by a large portal of solid timber. The name of the former holiday resort had been graffitti'd over with the name "Blackhaven".
We were greeted by a representative we had contacted beforehand, who had agreed to show us around. Our arrival attracted some attention from the members of the cult, who eyed us suspiciously.
As we made our way through the main camp we noticed a large clearing some distance off, and in the middle there appeared to be the remainPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
