Internet fad created by "Invisible Children" in order to generate money and make Twitter users feel better about themselves.
Kony 2012 is a good example of a circle jerk.

A campaign by Invisible Children Inc with the intention of making as much money for its founders as possible: otherwise known as a "scam." Last year Invisible Children pocketed over $5,000,000 (not counting salaries) and only gave 24% of their revenue to African countries. This year, with the widespread familiarity of their new viral video "Kony 2012," will bring even MORE profits to the fraud charity's owners.

Movement that allows anyone using facebook or twitter with half a brain think they are a hardcore activist even though their only source of information is from a Youtube video.

An annoying documentary on Joesph Kony by Jason Russell (who is also the founder of the Invisible Children Organization) that went viral in March 2012 on every social networking website. Joesph Kony is a warlord in Uganda who abducts children, forces them to kill their parents and serve his army. Jason Russell and his supporters want to make Kony famous in order to make the US armed forces go to Uganda and arrest him by gaining support from members of US congress and celebrities. The whole thing is very annoying. What Kony is doing is definitely a crime against humanity, however why should the US armed forces be bugged about this? Last time we checked the US armed forces were a group of soldiers to eliminate THREATS not a group of mercenaries that will kill anybody that others don't like. We have sent 100 troops to Uganda however they are inactive once they get there. Honestly if these people want Kony dead so bad Jason Russell and his supporters should have a fundraiser, go to Uganda, by cheap AK and AKM type rifles from a local dealer and hunt him down themselves. You are not fighting a war by bugging others to fight it for you. Quit bugging the US military for everything they're not a commissioning service. The supporters should also stop bashing anybody who does not care about the situation as it is not mandatory. The activism for a good cause but has terrible demands.
Person1:Did you get a kony 2012 video on your wall?

Person2: Yeah, those idiots think they're helping by liking the video and bashing anybody who does not want to get involved.

Person1: I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

A stupid campaign made by the controversial organization, Invisible Children, urging people to share some 30 minute long video that will somehow make Joseph Kony, a criminal in Africa, "famous." They clearly don't realize that the word they were looking for was "infamous," or that Mr. Kony hasn't even been very active for years now. One of the central figures in the organization, Jason Russell, had a public, drunk, naked melt down two weeks after this. Apparently it was just too much success.
Person who does no research: Yeah, KONY 2012! Save the Africans!

Person who does research: Good luck with that, idiot.

A scam. A huge propaganda that was needed to be given a reason for the U.S. or UN to intervene. These trendy idiots think buying the products of InvisibleChildren is really going to help. If you actually really want to help, go to the country. You think a revolution is going to happen behind the computer? Wow.
