Did you guys see this kind of objection to the whole thing? http://visiblechildren.tumblr.com/

Makes me a bit sceptical. Nevertheless this guy needs to be stopped.

here's another one: http://tumblr.thedailywh.at/post/18909727859/on-kony-2012-i-honestly-wanted-to-stay-as-far

i still think even if you don't support the Invisible Children organization or this new movement, spreading the word is a good thing and people should know about what's going on.

here's my view a day later now that i'm slightly less fired up-


yesterday i did not know who this man was. i had heard of the LRA but never paid much attention to it, and i was (and still am) equally unaware or apathetic to numerous crises around the globe. it is a little strange that because someone puts together a really good video, everybody now cares about this problem and this man. but they do. and that's a good thing. it will inevitably become the "cool" thing to support. for some, it will serve mainly to boost egos and display personality traits that they want to display to the world. but people care, and that's a good thing.

i will not say that Joseph Kony is the world's worst war criminal. i honestly don't know if that is true. it may well be. i do know that he is an internationally recognized war criminal responsible for horrific crimes. i believe that he should be captured. how? i don't know. the Ugandan Army is not squeaky clean. they have done bad things as well. should world powers support them nonetheless? a discussion should be sparked to answer this that gets more intelligent and sophisticated as it goes on. this discussion should be among both the senators and the plebs. we should, all together, find the truth and decide on a course of action best for the children affected by the LRA.


i want to see this criminal captured, but the focus should always be on the children.

i am fascinated by the spreading of the Kony 2012 message, but the focus should be on the message, not the self-gratification of those spreading it.

to IC's credit, they are doing a relatively good job addressing most of the critics of them and their campaign.

Can't post external links yet, but I'll copy and past the news item here...

Invisible Children co-founder detained by police; charity made 'KONY 2012' video

Brendan Mcdermid / Reuters
Jason Russell, co-founder of and director of "Kony 2012" viral video campaign, was detained by San Diego police
By NBC News and msnbc.com staff
SAN DIEGO – A co-founder of Invisible Children, the group behind the “KONY 2012” video on alleged atrocities by an African warlord, was detained for being drunk in public and masturbating, according to the San Diego Police Department.

Jason Russell, was taken into custody after he was found masturbating in public, vandalizing cars and possibly under the influence of something, said Lt. Andra Brown, NBCSanDiego.com reported.
Russell is one of the the founders responsible for the "KONY 2012" video that went viral last week. He is described on the organization's website as a co-founder and "our grand storyteller and dreamer." Russell is also described as a Christian and father to two children who wants to have nine more children with his wife he calls his "best friend for over 23 years."

The video of alleged child atrocities by Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony has been viewed more than 100 million times on the Internet.
NBCSanDiego.com contributed to this story.

I know...right? Jeez, cover of darkness people!!

Saying that, I don't know if you guys have heard of them, but there's an amazing British rock band called The Wildhearts, they played a gig in Belfast about 10-12 years ago, there was a guy in the front row, masturbating away during the set...no-one dared say a word. Bare in mind, this was a small pub venue, with about 300 capacity, and it was sold out...

Yeah, it was a strange night to say the least, I mean, where do you even start to contemplate how much of the bar you have to drink to even THINK about doing something like that...
