Occupy Wall Street trumped by Anonymous false flag?

The modern media is a most bizarre playground; not unlike the cut and thrust of Second World War espionage and counter-espionage. We’re often treated to massive, blanket coverage of certain events which in the greater scheme are far less significant or important than other key events which get virtually no column inches at all.

What am I waffling on about you ask? Take the G8 summit in Edinburgh back in 2005 where around 225,000 protesters marched through the city’s streets to call on G8 leaders to end third world poverty as part of the “Make Poverty History” campaign.

The Wall Street signpost

Wall Street, home of a new conflict.

The same day as the protest Bob Geldof and his cronies, including U2, Madonna and Pink Floyd were crooning away in London’s Hyde Park.

Of course the media focused on the pop concert, Live 8, and the Make Poverty History campaigners were swept under the news carpet; there to lie with the dust mites, toe nail clippings and dried bogies.

As a result bands like U2 saw a 300% increase in record sales while the Make Poverty History campaign was ignored and the poor people of the affected countries landed only a fraction of the cash raised by Geldof’s publicity venture.

So the point is that the media controls what we see, read, hear and to a large extent, purchase.

Occupy Wall Street protesters on the move

Protesters of the Occupy Wall Street movement on the march.

Fast forward six years and a similar thing is happening again. #OccupyWallStreet is a campaign to highlight the corruption going on in Wall Street and the effects that corruption is having on the national and global economy, as well as minority groups.

Fresh from their non-event at Bohemian Grove on July 13th this year, hacker group Anonymous have lent their support to the protests after a public outcry over the lack of media coverage the occupation, now into its second week, was receiving. Like the G20 protests in Toronto, 2010, the media is focusing on the trouble elements after 700 people were arrested yesterday for blocking traffic lanes on the Brooklyn Bridge. It is only after these arrests that newspapers and websites are gathering interest in the movement, but for all the wrong reasons.

Anonymous join the party on Wall Street

During the G20 campaign police officers arrested peaceful demonstrators, locking them up for 48 hours in a makeshift jail, while ignoring the dangerous ‘Black Bloc’ group – a gang of masked thugs who burned cars and smashed shops windows before disappearing behind police lines. Yes, they were cointelpro.

Black Bloc members at he G20 summit in Toronto - none were arrested.

The arrival of Anonymous and their V for Vendetta masks should set alarm bells ringing because the media will pick up on their presence and turn the whole thing into a circus, diluting the real message.

There won’t be the same tear gas, pincer moves and flaming cars as witnessed in Toronto, but there will be enough misinformation and misdirection of facts that will be sufficient to make the public think that the whole event is just a bunch of crazies with nothing better to do than stage a big fat love-in.

This was the focus of the newspapers after the G20 riots; nothing about innocent bystanders being arrested and detained for 48 hours.

Total discredit.

Wall Street moguls control the media by the way, not hard to see why they’d want to keep this whole thing quietly in perspective.

I sincerely hope the protesters win and make a massive social statement – People = Power – but I have that canny feeling that the media will win the day out and before long it’ll be back to Lady Gaga wearing animal skin and some vacuous reality TV star losing their septum after a cocaine binge of epic proportions.

If I’m wrong you can tell me so by leaving a comment below, or you can do so now and let us know your thoughts on the financial crisis looming over America and the world, the Occupy Wall Street movement or Anonymous.

Bono considers heightening surgery

Serial arsetumbler (© 2011 Strucorp) and U2 front man, Bono (short for Bono Vox, an Irish shop he named himself after which literally translates to “short bastard”) is considering having surgery to extend his legs because he’s only five foot tall.

After receiving abuse from Kasabian singer Tom something-or-other, Bono also feels the additional height will give him a distinct edge in a fist fight should it come to it. Not The Edge, that much maligned and balding U2 guitarist, no, more of a physical edge.

Bono receding hairline and arse pubes

Bono tried hair stacking to gain height but now realises that only surgery will make him not short.

The surgery is a new, revolutionary technique that takes excess bone and muscle mass from the ego and fingers and places it in the thighs and calves. Due to Bono’s spade like hands, doctors feel they could offer him an extra several feet and he is considering going as high as eight feet.

His current diminutive stature requires him to wear platform shoes, a big hat and drag a huge television set around everywhere he goes so that people can see his ego from space. With the additional height afforded by top surgeons, Bono will be able to ditch the hat so the world will be able to enjoy the pubic hair from his arse which was used to fill in the bald spots on his fat noggin.

How Bono might have looked had he not put his arse hair on his head.

Being from Liecester, UK, Tom thingy from Kasabian is not threatened by Bono or his fans who he dubbed “cardboard cut outs who like one band and one record – Joshua Tree”, because he’s from the East Midlands and is therefore actually pretty hard.

Tom Meighan is quite hard and certainly not scared of Baldy Bono.

Luckily Bono has back up from George W. Bush with whom he made friends during the G8 thing a few years ago. You may remember Madonna, Bob Geldof and U2 played a concert in Hyde Park, London and raised over $60m to aid third world countries. A staggering $7m of that has so far reached those intended to benefit leaving a huge financial deficit the size of Bono’s bald spot (the one he had plugged with arse pubes) and questions over where the money has gone.

When his PR people said, "meet Bush" Bono thought he was there for a new hair piece. He didn't realise he was getting a war criminal.

Still, the world patted itself on the back and celebrities lied to themselves about how valuable and useful they are to society.

The worst part is that a massive protest took place on the same day in Edinburgh, Scotland but the media were too busy feeling the love at Hyde Park and diverting the public’s attention away from the fact that world leaders were preparing to rape their civil liberties.

Luckily Bono is part of the Jubilee 2000 scheme which aimed to encourage first world leaders to drop Africa’s $40bn debt (something Bill Gates could do on his own and still have enough change to buy Monsanto), thus freeing the oppressed people there from tyranny and enslavement. Except that it doesn’t drop the country’s debts, it just allows corrupt politicians and monarchs to continue pouring international aid into their own pockets, still depriving the people who really need it.

Jubilee 2000 did absolutely nothing for the people of Africa but it did help people like Bono sell more CDs.

Bono was not available for comment regarding lengthening surgery but don’t be surprised to see him lining up for the New York Knicks soon.

Fourth actor injured in Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark

Yet more disaster struck yesterday for the seemingly cursed Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark Broadway show, when a fourth actor was injured by a fall.

New Zealand tourist, Jonathon Dealwis was at the show and he told CNN that he saw Spider-Man fall “about 6 metres.”

“Spider-Man was on a bridge, and Mary Jane was dangling from it,” Dealwis told reporters. “She drops down, as is meant to happen. Spider-Man went to the end of the bridge there. I think he was meant to sort of swoop over there, but he just fell off. … The harness, you could see it just flick off his back and fly backward.”

The fall occurred towards the end of the show, but the New York Fire Department reported that the 31 year old stuntman, whose name has not been given, was lucid after the accident.

Reeve Carney plays Peter Parker, but according to spokesman Jaron Caldwell, it wasn’t Carney that fell. There are nine stunt men to perform Spider-Man’s stunts, and it was one of those who was involved in the accident.

After the incident, Dealwis said: “It just went black, and the producer came on and said we’re going to pause for a moment. You could hear Mary Jane weeping.”

One of the producers then told the crowd that the show was over. Dealwis went on to say that some people “clapped awkwardly,” and one person “laughed mockingly,” which drew “disapproving glances” from others in the audience.

After the stuntman was wheeled away in a neck brace, another spokesperson for the show, Rick Miramontez said: “All signs were good as he was taken to the hospital for observation.”

Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark is the most expensive stage show in Broadway history and features words and music by U2’s Bono and The Edge. Despite the hype there have been many technical issues and now a fourth injured actor to add to the list.

The Show still hasn’t officially opened because of all the problems and it is unclear when the next scheduled performance will take place.

Seems the show is racking up a lot of injuries and problems, do you think it’s worth all the hype? Have you seen the show? Please let us know by leaving a comment.

Spider-Man Broadway injuries mount up

While producers and sponsors may be delighted with the new $65 million Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark stage presentation, they are slowly running out of performers to carry out the shows.

The Broadway spectacular began last week although it isn’t set to open officially at the Foxwoods Theatre until January 11th, 2011, and so far three actors have suffered injuries due to technical issues on and around the stage.

On the opening night one woman in the audience was heckled by fellow viewers when she shouted, “I don’t know about you but I feel like a guinea pig.”

That was her honest response to a show that ran almost three hours over after actors and stunt people were suspended in the air because equipment had failed. Her indiscretion was justified having paid $140 for her ticket.

The actress who plays Arachne, Natalie Mendoza, during the premier preview last week suffered concussion after being hit in the head by a rope with production gear tied to it while she was offstage. The injury forced her to miss several performances.

Producers kept quiet over the incident but later told the New York Times what had happened.

Mendoza is the third actor to befall serious injury, following Kevin Aubin who broke both of his wrists when he smashed into the side of the stage during rehearsals for a flying sequence. Another actor broke a bone in his foot and according to sources that also occurred during a flight scene.

Mendoza, was ordered to rest for a few days by doctors but initially, against their orders she continued to perform. She has now however taken to rest and should be back on stage again in a few days time.

Regardless of the hiccups, injuries and hecklers, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, whose musical score was composed by U2’s Bono and The Edge, took over $1 million in sales after the first review.  Lead producer Michael Cohl said, “We’re thrilled to finally be performing this terrific show for audiences, and we’re excited that the audiences are coming in droves.”

The new trend in super hero stage plays sees Batman visiting the UK next year in a $50 million production. Let’s hope the Dark Knight and his crew are more safety conscious than Spidey and co.
