Are you guys familiar with the KONY 2012 thing going on lately? If not, here’s a little something to educate yourselves on. Joseph Kony? Is a f-cking dick. Who enslaves children for sexual and militant purposes. Here’s his child thing in a nutshell, but there’s much, much more:
He ordered the abduction of children to become child-sex slaves and child soldiers. An estimated 66,000 children became soldiers and two million people have been internally displaced since 1986. In 2005, Kony was indicted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands, but has evaded capture. The LRA operates in Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Central African Republic, South Sudan, and Sudan.
And yes, he’s still doing it, if you’re wondering.
Here’s some background information on Invisible Children:
Invisible Children, Inc. is headquartered in San Diego and employs 43 full-time, permanent staff who work alongside hundreds of volunteers to spearhead our awareness and advocacy work internationally.
Invisible Children first began its work in Uganda in 2005. Based in Gulu, Invisible Children Uganda (ICU) began by working alongside local visionaries, such as Ms. Jolly Okot, who identified the areas of greatest need in northern Uganda at the time. Relying on this local leadership and expertise, Invisible Children Uganda worked to develop programs on the ground.
And lastly, here’s a link to the video if you have thirty minutes to do nothing but … watch the video. Which I recommend, especially if this is the first place you’ve heard about this Kony douche and his monstrosities.
Anyway, Invisible Children is synonymous with the KONY 2012 campaign, as is its founder, Jason Russell. Who was found on the streets of San Diego acting … well, acting like he was definitely high as a kite on something, but his reps say that it was all due to exhaustion, malnutrition, and excessive thirst or something. Here’s the video courtesy of TMZ (which is kind of NSFW) featuring Russell doing his thing on a street corner:
And here’s another video, just from a different angle (but no, there’s no penis, you sick freak):
Here’s the official statement:
Jason Russell was unfortunately hospitalized yesterday 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, Jason especially, and that toll manifested itself in an unfortunate incident yesterday. Jason’s passion and his work have done so much to help so many, and we are devastated to see him dealing with this personal health issue. We will always love and support Jason, and we ask that you give his entire family privacy during this difficult time.
But yet he’s so tired and exhausted and encumbered by his myriad responsibilities with KONY 2012 and Invisible Children that he’s wandering around in public, openly jerking off, slapping the asphalt, ranting about the Devil, and loudly using profanities.
I mean, isn’t that what you do when you’re tired and thirsty, too? Duh.
