The people that are questioning the legitimacy of the organization and the facts are the people who are not asking "what's your source" They're the ones, after watching the video, do their own research and read about the organization, the situation and Joseph Kony himself.

The monkeys that click "like" or "share" are the same people that get roped into the same bs any propaganda machine throws at them because they're too lazy to do their research.

A little quick to judge saying that I don't know what I am talking about.

What do your propose should happen then?

You think I don't got my own problems to deal with over here to? Everybody's got fucking problems. It's when people take a moment to give a damn that makes a difference, instead of making stupid memes about 'how you've always been a social activist.' That time could have been put to something a little more worth while IMO.

The worlds not getting any worse then it was 100 or even a 1000 years ago. But living in the world we do today, where all it takes is something like social media (a few clicks of a mouse) to make a difference in the world.. I say that's something pretty damn significant...

enjoy your cozy bed..

Just posted a severely annotated version of the Kony questioners in this thread on a friend's Facebook post, plus mentioning that the rest of Africa has problems, and one of his lemming friends goes and replies to me with "Gota (sic) start somwhere (sic)".

He's a Christian terrorist of a Christian terrorist organization, but we'll all just leave that out and simply say he's a war criminal

fuckin douches



and for those wondering



he's basically the character that Nicolas Cage was dealing with through the movie (a character said to be about charles taylor)
as Andre Bout is said to have dealt with Kony a lot






side note i dont know how anyone watched this video without previously knowing what its about... first 20seconds i was like wtf is this? so failing some ppl who said tldw is silly

If anyone needs more evidence against Kony 2012 read:

On Kony 2012 - The Daily What
then
Taking ‘Kony 2012′ Down A Notch | Justice in Conflict
then
the visible problem with invisible children « i’m a fan of postcards

Coles notes: Kony is on his last legs, and isn't even in Uganda anymore. In fact, the Ugandans aren't even allowed to attack/pursue him in the countries that he is actually in. Uganda also has a horribly bad gov't, which is as much of a problem as Kony is/was. As far as IC goes, their finances are appalling and if you *truly* want to help in Uganda/Africa, there are many charities that are significantly more deserving of your money and support.

Uganda does have oil, their production recently jumped dramatically. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if one of the reasons IC won't fully open it;'s financials is because they get funding from some oil group.

Posted via RS Mobile
My personal research was based on a variety of sources on the web but also my own intuition. I already knew much of the history of Uganda and I know the direction Uganda is heading for right now. Based on that, I was able to come to the conclusion that this was more or less a media hype than anything else.

Also, since this is an official non-profit organization, their finances are all public. Based on the finances reported, I was able to my make opinion on how much relief effort this organization was ACTUALLY providing and how much of it was merely profit.

Hope that answers your question, at least in part.

On a side note, about 98% of my Facebook Kony followers are also Whitney Houston mourners. Those who "loved and always cared for Whitney."
