“If Oprah, Steven Spielberg and Bono had a baby, I would be that baby.” – Invisible Children director Jason Russel, 2011

Holy shit. I had to check it wasn’t april 1st then. That creepy propagandist Christian Fundamentalist with the cold dead eyes of a serial killer/Invisible Children director I was writing about last week has been arrested for leaping around outside in his underwear, vandalising cars and publicly masturbating.

From The Guardian, via Dangerous Minds:

One of the co-founders of Invisible Children, the San Diego-based charity which is campaigning for the arrest of Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony, has been hospitalised after police said he was detained for being naked and masturbating in public.

Jason Russell, 33, was picked up by police in San Diego at around 11.30am on Thursday after receiving numerous calls from the public about a man vandalising cars, being apparently under the influence of a substance and making sexual gestures while wearing only his underwear.

According to local TV station NBC, San Diego police spokeswoman Lieutenant Andra Brown told a press conference in the city that Russell was co-operative as he was detained by officers. “He was no problem for the police department. However, during the evaluation we learned that we probably needed to take care of him. So officers detained him and transferred him to a local medical facility for further evaluation and treatment,” she said.


Sorry, couldn’t help that. I am now reminded of that bit in the Kony propaganda masterpiece where Jason’s son says “daddy when I grow up I wanna be just like you.” 

A brief statement by the Ben Keesey of Invisible Children said:

“Jason Russell was unfortunately hospitalised suffering from exhaustion, dehydration and malnutrition. He is now receiving medical care and is focused on getting better.

“The past two weeks have taken a severe emotional toll on all of us and that toll manifested itself in an unfortunate incident yesterday. Jason’s passion and bis work [sic.?] have done so much to help so many and we are are devastated to see him dealing with this personal health issue.”



In all seriousness though, this deepens my suspicion that he is some kind of brainwashed MK Ultra manbot or something. That is classic brainwashed MK Ultra manbot behaviour right there.

Meanwhile, the excercise appears to be having the desired effect:

Two House lawmakers on Tuesday introduced a resolution supporting efforts to counter the Lord’s Resistance Army, hoping to build on the momentum created by a viral YouTube video spotlighting the atrocities of LRA leader Joseph Kony.

The resolution, introduced by Reps. Jim McGovern, D-Mass. and Ed Royce, R-Calif., calls for, among other things, expanding the number of regional forces in Africa to protect civilians and placing restrictions on individuals or governments found to be supporting Kony.

“I am hopeful that we can use this momentum as a force for change,” he said. “We must do all that we can to protect innocent civilians — especially children — and end LRA violence once and for all.”

Protect them from this:

Oh my days, Charles Hamilton is officially the most gangster dude in all of hip-hop as of RIGHT NOW. According to Rap Radar, Chuck was arrested last week in Ohio… “he allegedly was causing a disturbance at various bars. When he was confronted by a cop, he punched the officer in the face. Apparently he’s still in custody with bail set at $25,000. Below is the case information.”

SWAG. I wonder if this’ll catch on?

From the BBC:

The founder of the whistle-blowing website Wikileaks, Julian Assange, has been arrested by police in London [as noted by David in the comments, he handed himself in for questioning – ATD].

The 39-year-old Australian, who was the subject of a European arrest warrant, denies allegations he sexually assaulted two women in Sweden.

Mr Assange is due to appear at City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court later.

A Wikileaks spokesman said Mr Assange’s arrest was an attack on media freedom but it would not stop the release of more secret files.

Scotland Yard said Mr Assange was arrested by appointment at a London police station at 0930 GMT.

Mr Assange is accused by the Swedish authorities of one count of rape, one of unlawful coercion and two counts of sexual molestation, alleged to have been committed in August 2010.

The Independent continues:

Police contacted [Assange’s lawyer] last night after receiving a fresh European Arrest Warrant from the Swedish authorities.

The first warrant, issued last month, was not valid as officials had failed to fill in the form properly.

Detectives in Sweden want to question Mr Assange after two women claimed they were sexually assaulted when he visited the country in August.

Solicitor Mark Stephens said his client was keen to discover what allegations he was facing so he could clear his name.

He said: “It’s about time we got to the end of the day and we got some truth, justice and rule of law.

“Julian Assange has been the one in hot pursuit to vindicate himself to clear his good name.

“He has been trying to meet with her (the Swedish prosecutor) to find out what the allegations are he has to face and also the evidence against him, which he still hasn’t seen.”

If that isn’t the most obvious set-up of the decade, then what is? This ish is dumber than Soulja Boy and Kat Stacks. Fool on Assange for falling for it, but Sheeeee-it…
