JASON RUSSELL , DISTURBING CHILD ABUSE IMAGERY INVOLVING SON.
Invisible Children's Jason Russel's Disturbing Child Abuse And Nazi style Riefenstahl-Images on person web site.
The director of the viral propaganda video "Kony 2012", Jason Russell of Invisible Children, created a personal website soliciting donations and it included a photo that can only be characterized as engaging in child abuse. The website was created using with the title “Mail Me Mo Money” The site shows that Russell engaged in very bizarre behavior long before his alleged "meltdown" from "exhaustion" earlier this year when he was detained after he appeared naked on the street and also reportedly engaged in public masturbation.
This site was created a year ago; well before Invisible Children launched " 2012." The website was live until yesterday; more on that shortly. The statement on the website asking for money to be mailed to Russell's San Diego home address read:
I'm taking all the power back by growing a stash this November. At the same time I am testing whether Social Networks are viable tools for fundraising. It's this simple: Mail Me Money $1.00 or more to 1672 Emerald Street #5 San Diego, CA 92109. Put a Post-it on the Bill, or fold it Origami style, or draw a gnarly Mo Washington's face. I will take a pic with your bill and post it on this BLOG. It's super simple... the hardest part is getting a stamp.
Several of the pictures on the site feature Jason's son Gavin who was also a focus of “ 2012”. On one level the website can be seen as a harmless and playful attempt at “”. However there are a few images that are disturbing.
One of the images is of Jason Russell with what he describes as a “Charlie Chaplin” moustache. The image is eerily similar to Adolf Hitler. The stare; the hair; and, of course, the moustache. You be the judge.
Invisible Children seems to have a fascination with Nazi-like imagery and strategies. Consider the images of masses of young people with fists raised in unison that the organization has employed in its past videos and in "Kony 2012." Sometimes the young people are dressed in matching T-shirts; and in uniforms. This type of display is a page reminiscent of the Hitler Youth movement and some of the imagery favored by the late Leni Riefenstahl's 1936 Olympia.
Invisible Children’s world-changing “club” or "youth camp" is called the “Fourth Estate” and includes a symbolic logo. It reminds anyone familiar with history of Hitler’s Third Reich and the swastika.
Hitler was also prominently featured on one of the posters created by Invisible Children for the organization’s “Cover The Night” campaign that was held on April 20, 2012 around the world. April 20 is also Adolph Hitler’s birthday. Coincidence?
The date is viewed as a holiday by White supremacists around the world. The “Cover the Night” campaign was a complete flop. Perhaps the outrage with Invisible Children's war-mongering, it's relations with the brutal Ugandan regime, and the negative reaction to " 2012" within Uganda by ordinary people had something to do with this.
Another extremely disturbing image on Jason Russell's website is of a $5 bill wedged in between the buttock cheeks of a naked small child. The caption reads: “Owen: there are A LOT more illegal things. Love Gavin's buns.”
Gavin is presumably Jason Russell’s son, who also appeared in " 2012." If this isn't a pattern of abuse, then we don't know what child exploitation to solicit money is; that has been one of the criticisms of “ 2012”. While this bizarre use of his son may not be illegal, it should strike any decent person as being highly unethical and deserving of investigation by a Child Welfare Agency.
There have been repeated lapses of judgment in the leadership of Invisible Children.
This organization has not been held accountable for many of its actions, including revelations first made by The Black Star News that it spied on behalf of the brutal Ugandan regime of Gen. , as exposed in U.S. embassy memos posted by Wikileaks.
These are the people influencing young and impressionable minds with their antics and behavior.
Jason Russell's website at http://jradruss.tumblr.com/ was available for public viewing as of May 4, 2012. Within 24 hours of the link being posted on social media sites like and Twitter, it was taken down.
This is no coincidence. Invisible Children may be in damage control to protect themselves from potential legal actions. The organization has never responded to The Black Star News' questions sent at the time we revealed its disturbing relations with the Ugandan regime. This is not how complex global challenges are solved. Transparency is vital to any organization or business seeking to build a better world. We still to hope to hear from Invisible Children's CEO, Ben Keesey. Russell and Keesey are both directors of Invisible Children.
Invisible Children plans an appearance at the United Nations in June. We hope the U.N. poses some of the questions we've raised to the organization before Invisible Children is granted this podium generally reserved for Heads of State. While Invisible Children may think it can continue to ignore inquiries from The Black Star News, as more concerned individuals continue to raise questions, sooner or later, they will have to respond directly: not on their website or through new viral videos. Their arrogance and contempt will catch up -- there are many other issues this newspaper is still looking into.
Seperately, one group has now started a petition drive to counter Invisible Children's planned United Nations appearance.
