The true character behind the video con

In a fateful twist one of the con-artists responsible (Jason Russell) for the Kony 2012 viral video was arrested by San Diego police for 'masturbating in public' and 'acting strangely,' really! The tragic, psychologically alienated, clearly twisted, corporate pawn can't even get himself laid!

As stated many times previously the digital medium is a two-edged sword and it didn't take the world long to digitally expose and disseminate the FRAUD that was the Kony 2012 video con; Corporate/CFR media 'perception management' tricks are well known today. And it takes more than moron managers like Oprah and Jolie to sell an odorous turd to the public. Careful who you support, celebs; public image is everything in your business and the shine comes off, fast!

What a pathetic attempt at pure LIES and social management -- better luck next time, wankers!

A co-founder for Invisible Children was detained in Pacific Beach Thursday night for being drunk in public and masturbating, according to San Diego Police Department.

Brown said Russell was acting very strange.

Russell is one of the the founders responsible for the "Kony 2012" video that went viral last week. He is described on the organization's website as a co-founder and "our grand storyteller and dreamer." Russell is also described as a Christian and father to two children who wants to have nine more children with his wife he calls his "best friend for over 23 years."


Liberty University wrote of Jason Russell's appearance at their 2011 Convocation:

On November 7, 2011 at Convocation, North America's largest weekly gathering of Christian students, Jason Russell, co-founder of the Invisible Children movement and Alex Harris, author of "Do Hard Things" and "Start Here," participated in a panel, moderated by Vice-President of Liberty University and Campus Pastor, Johnnie Moore, about making a difference in the world. Students were able to text questions to the speakers about what motivated them to start their organizations, challenges to the millennial generation in impacting the world for Christ and how they can start making a difference in the world.

Invisible Children, uses the power of media to inspire young people to help end the longest running war in Africa. They make documentaries, tour them around the world, and lobby our nation's leaders to make ending this war a priority.

London's "10 O'Clock Live's" Charlie Brooker explains everything you should know about the 'phenomenon' of Invisible Children's Video Kony 2012 and the people behind it.

Just another Christian nutter swearing ('fuck ..') like a trooper and raving about the devil -- bent America has no prob murdering civilians and thieving resources but they can't broadcast, FUCK!

Sick, sick, sick; this clown typifies everything that is WARPED pathological AMERICA. The bleeps count the utterances!

another indication that the Banking/Corporatist ruling cabals have lost their ability to attract a decent skill base -- if this warped clown is the best they can do, then they are truly finished.
