I`m going to copy/paste this argument EVERY TIME I see someone who got butthurt about IC taking some of the money for themselves...

i still dont see why people are so surprised that IC kept most of the money...they have to pay for everything they do. their employees, those posters, their seminars, their over seas trips. everything.

they are doing what they said they were going to do. make Kony "famous". If anything they might even give MORE than most other charities...

hrm, it cut off...

I don`t post much, but the knowledge that any media attention that KONY receives will cause the death and suffering of tens of thousands of innocents struck a nerve with me. This is all about oil and the Christian Right has shown their card as being chess pieces of repressive international oil industries.

Notice how the intro only has Western media critiques...

Al Jazeera Reports Here`s how Ugandan survivors reacted when the saw the KONY video KONY screening in Uganda
Also, notice at 1:25 the lying body language by the IC founder

Another report from a Ugandan reporter (I do hope we doesnt receive penalties for reporting the truth)

You can read transcripts of the interview... I suggesst you donate a modest amount since the RealNews is viewer funded and does not accept corporate funding.

"no achievable political purpose"? In a Kony interview, he said that his army`s purpose is to have free elections without corruption. And that the kids being mutilated are from the government`s army as a smear campaign against him. How crazy would it be if that was the actual truth and we are all being played?

itself is a much more significant thing than the validity of the Kony movement... and I wonder if governments are threatened by the fact that more and more "ordinary" people can come together and bring about movements... this is possible with the internet.

Look past the surface to see the pic picture.

ok, gonna say one more thing, then gonna give it up (hopefully)

This whole movement has many parts. Some are indisputable fact, some points are being questioned, perhaps rightly.

FACT:

People, innocent civilians and children have been tortured, raped, killed, and forced to fight.

People watched the Kony 2012 video by the millions and many, many people wanted to come together and help these people.

One of the leaders of this movement had some sort of breakdown in public.

Non-Fact - Still in dispute:

What this movement is about, its motives.

Put aside for a moment the "Kony" movement and look at the first two facts. There have been, and, according to news sources are still people being terrorized by this man.

The thing greater than the Kony movement itself is the fact that millions of people, complete strangers from the opposite sides of the world, wanted to step in and help. That, in and of itse

If you are considering donating to Invisible Children, do yourself a favor. Take $100, flush $68 down the toilet, which is what IC skims off the top, and then take the remaining $32 and donate it to a legitimate charity.

@imnakdjumpme I`m not against going into the jungle and kicking Kony`s a s s, but I am against giving money to an organization that is in bed with another organization that, according to Ugandan legislator David Bahati is the "inspiration" for the `kill the gays` legislation. You can read for yourself. It`s long, but worth the read; talk2action.org /story/2012/4/4/8029/40080/

Antagonizer, i only see that they accepted donations from christian organizations, but not that they support an anti-gay agenda. One of the organizers is gay and they have spoken out against the abuse of LGBT in Uganda.
IT is not a right or left issue, so i could see people from both sides getting involved.

Good cause, fishy organization.

Anyone who kidnaps even a single child should be punished.

Imagine if he kidnapped just one kid, the Presidents.

FYI Invisible Children is a christian organization linked to another group called `The Fellowship` or `The Family` that have been pushing Ugandan officials to create a "kill the gays" bill where being homosexual gets you the death penalty. Decide for yourself if you want to follow them...

Id like to see what facts are disputed in this video. It seems like a valid manhunt to me.

Why would it be bad to try and capture this guy? No matter how long ago he did these terrible things, he should be held accountable. Pol Pot didnt even get tried until after he died. Dont you think the victim deserve more? Dont you think the world should come together to show the victims we do care? If everyone stood up and took action towards getting Kony, it would show that this method is effective and we can go after even worse people.

@tedgp

Since the original video was released, Kony`s Lord`s Resistance Army (LRA) has abducted 57 more people.
Is this what you call `over`?

@thubenstar youre one of the people of which i speak. The regime had done this stuff, but its over now. Done. In the past. 6 years ago.

The only people trying to champion the cause are people looking for their 15 mins of fame, and the fraudsters that masquerade under the name "Invisible Children"

Ok, one last thing... If I hear one more comment about how "they haven`t been active in years" I will (mentally) come to your home and puke over you and everything you own.

REALLY? THEN IT`S ALL OK THEN, RIGHT? IT`S JUST FINE AND WE CAN FORGIVE HIM BECAUSE, Y`KNOW, HE IS A MODEL CITIZEN NOW! HE HAS NOT KILLED, TORTURED AND RAPED IN A WHILE, YIPPEE!

So, that does not count? Jesus... how cynical and cruel.

A viral video about a regime that hasnt been active for over 6 years. Just goes to show how pathetic and stupid the general public really is.

Thanks, collegebound.

And fancylad, I guess time will tell. I`m not going to be a close-minded fanatic about it, but I`m sad we live in a world where either:

1. These people are fishy. How absolutely horrible. There would be a special place in hell for people who take advantage of other people who have been murdered, raped and tortured.

OR

2. The world is so cold, so heartless, so jaded, that an honest try to help oppressed people only brings a response of "So what? Bored now! Gotta be fake!" and other, soul shriveling comments.

AWFUL either way. But I`d rather know the world was full of a-holes (no new news there) than find out Kony 2012 is a lie.
