I dont post often (at all really) but I felt this was worth sharing.

If you have a half hour to watch this, great. If you share it after watching, even better.

I just came here with the intention of posting it, and I agree with what you said.

Yeah that was pretty powerful, I'll be keeping an eye on this. If it works then more power to them.

awesome, pretty powerful stuff.

It would have been far more powerful without him doing all the "America doesn't benefit from this" bullshit. That made me angry. And if he told us about how the Ugandan military operates. But hey ho, the idea's interesting.
Call me Bellend

Can someone give me a "nutshell" of what this is? After watching about 6 minutes I thought it probably wasn't aimed at me, I'm still curious though.

Not everyone agrees with this

As far as I understand it, its a call to arms to rid the world of Joesph Kony, an African Warlord who, abuses and uses kids for armies, prostitution etc. The claim is to get military intervention to stop this from happening, which in turn would mean them fighting the very kids they are trying to protect

Read Lion of the Midlands link, its a great countenance to the current brouhaha.

As an aside, the whole abuse of children in Africa, using them as Soldiers, raping and pilliaging is hardly a 'new' issue. Newsround covered it loads on Newsround Extra iirc, whilst I was growing up. So why now? The cynic in me wants to say 'First World Guilt'.

Dont China weild alot of power in Africa these days? What would be their stance on this kind of thing?

Great post. My immediate thought on watching the first few minutes of the video was "hmmmmmmmmmm..." It felt all a bit colonial guilt. Having read that well-researched blog, I'm even less sure that Invisible Children is the touchy-feely organisation it purports to be.

Bloody liberals.

I was about to post about the "real" side of Invisible Children, also, this pretty much feels like another pantomime villain to distract us.

Everything just to keep us busy, and no, not some zionist reptile plot or anything.

The pessimist in me sees this KONY 2012 as the latest thing for cool kids to rally behind. Check out my sick KONY 2012 bracelet yo.

It probably won't last until next week to be honest.

interesting perspective here. people do jump on the bandwagon far too quickly with these things.

It's funny I been out all day so missed the Kony stuff. But if you go back on facebook you can see everyone who is easy lead posting this Kony vid from 4ish onward. Then at around 8ish everone who did not jump on the bandwagon are posting links like the last lot showing the truth of the matter.
FUM
I'm Kony go mental if I see this on my Facebook again.

Charlie Brooker's had his say on it.

Masturbating AND vandalising cars. Not masturbating THEN vandalising cars. That's a blaze of glory if ever there was one.

If he had written "Kony 2012" in piss and/or spunk then I would at least respect his dedication to the cause

The new, more close-up video makes me think this is another case of a closeted evangelical who's been "struggling with who he is" having a meltdown/coming out party. You can hear how incredibly camp his ranting is in the new video, with a real over the top Larry Grayson walk, shouting about the devil. I'm thinking that within the next few days, something (him lol) is going to come out about this, ala Ted Haggard. Russell one of those crazy Christians from a super strict church - highschool sweetheart wife, with whom he wanted 11 kids. I'll be shocked at this point if there's no PCP and rentboys scandal coming our way.

Just had a read of that, and dear me it isnt looking good is it?

Not sure whats going on, if it was a "real" thing or not, but it all seems a bit fishy.
