As promised, it is my pleasure to present to you a brand new song…

LEMMINGS!

It’s from my next mixtape, ATD28: Unkillable Thunder Christ, which comes out on May 7th. You can preorder it here right now! Glory!

Lemmings was produced by me, Akira The Don and mastered by Gaz Williams, who is out in Paris working 14 hour days on an opera but still comes through for me like a G.

Respect and thanks to the mighty Tim Wright and DMA Design, who brightened our universe with their beautiful computer game and went on to become ROCKSTARS.

LYRICS:

some idiot from the coalition
got the people in a panic over petrol
Like its going missing
its like they hear but they dont listen
Spending every penny fillin up that pot they aint got to piss in
pourin petrol down their dumb selves
screaming in a blaze of gory
dictionary definition gassed
s’why you shouldnt vote tory
me I didnt vote none of them
if I had I’d be part of the problem i refuse to legitimise what I see to be a completely corrupt system
that’s me though
and I aint asking you to follow me though
i just want you to think when somebody tells you to jump of a bridge

DONT! JUMP! OFF!

now I wont say the name
but theres a newswebiste that can take the blame
for trolling people up on twitter
into bullying dames
I seen it happen time and time and time again
it goes:
publish an obviously inflammatory page
tweet that shit then wait for the rage
so self righteus “how could she write this”
ching ching ching ker ching and get paid
it works every time
clockwork, maths, its the perfect crime
cos when the lemmins see the other lemmins ready to sign
they’ll be screaming out “show me the dotted line!”
like that phony baloney Kony prank where
20 mili lemmings spread a piece of propaganda
some plum said guns’ll bring peace to uganda
turns out he was a wanker

From Visible Children:

According to diplomatic notes leaked last year by whistle-blower site Wikileaks, Invisible Children tipped off the Ugandan government about the location of Patrick Komakech, now under arrest for treason. Komakech had been involved in a rebel group (the PPF) seeking to overthrow the current President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni.

The June, 2009 cable, from the US Ambassador to Uganda (Steven Browning) to the Secretary of State, claims that Komakech (who had previously been featured in Invisible Children films) had been arrested by the Ugandan government for treason and extortion, thanks to a tip from Invisible Children regarding his location. The cable reads, in part:

“The latest plot was exposed when the Government received a tip from the U.S. non-governmental organization (NGO) Invisible Children regarding the location of Patrick Komekech.* […] Invisible Children reported that Komekech had been in Nairobi and had recently reappeared in Gulu, where he was staying with the NGO. Security organizations jumped on the tip and immediately arrested Komekech on March 5 [of 2009].”

Invisible Children has denied their involvement, with Uganda spokesperson Florence Ogola saying, “We are not involved in anything to do with security. We only deal with development.” A further spokepersontold Foreign Policy: “[W]e do not conduct intelligence efforts of any kind for a foreign government.”

This story hasn’t really been picked up by mainstream media yet, so I’m going to break with my rule of not asking for reblogs and ask you to please reblog this if you think it’s worthy of media attention.

*Spelling of Mr. Komakech’s name is currently unclear – Foreign Policy and the Daily Monitor both spell it as “Komakech”, while the original cables from Mr. Browning spell it “Komekech”

“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.

I TOLD YOU HE WAS A WANKER THOUGH!

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.”

OH MY SWEET LORD THAT IS THE FUNNIEST THING I HAVE SEEN IN 7 MONTHS. I AM AWED. TRULY WE LIVE IN BRASS EYE.

Amen.

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:
