One does not simply destabilize an Ugandian warlord by sharing a video.
I shared Kony 2012! I ended war in Uganda!
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.
Gullible teen girl: Stop Kony and support Invisible Children! Kony 2012!!!
Me: Go Phony 2012!!!!
Internet fad created by "Invisible Children" in order to generate money and make Twitter users feel better about themselves.
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.
Typical Facebook status: "WE NEED TO GET BRING PEACE. KONY 2012."
The ultimate dickriding bandwagon experience. This is even worse than the dickriding of Haiti 2010 or Obama 2008. The concept of KONY 2012 is to raise awareness about a Ugandan war criminal named Joseph Kony. The white liberals seek to cure their white liberal guilt and satisfy their self-righteous selves by posting stickers, sending videos, etc about Joseph Kony. They are oblivious to the fact that the current problems in that region stem primarily from western imperialism and colonialism and so are unable to see the silliness and stupidity of asking the institutions who murdered, raped, pillaged the people of africa to now come and save the day. White liberals must understand that the white nations really have no moral authority to send their armies into the lands of Africa. The slavery mentality that black people will never get ahead or achieve anything valid unless white people help is what is keeping the black man in a state of decline.
My friend - "Why are all these white suburban high school kids wearing KONY 2012 shirts"
Me - "Because they want the government to help the Ugandan military kill war criminals"
My friend - "You mean they want white western nations to train Africans on how to kill other Africans"
Me - "Yes, exactly what it is"
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
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...
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.
