Glad I'm the first to post it. Watch it.

Sort of curious as to why they chose 4/20 as the date though.

Several of my friends have already posted this on facebook. It seems like a great cause, even if the narrator is a numpty ............ I mean, he's too middle aged to dye his hair blond, he called his son Gavin, and who pronounces "Uganda" like that

Let's hope we can make the world a safer place in 2012. As MrClutch says, let's stop Kony and the many other evil ******** around the world.

Theyre apparently going to go after the others on that big list they showed a couple times after this if this indeed does work.

However ......... Visible Children - KONY 2012 Criticism would suggest that the situation isn't black and white ......... more like a murky shade of grey.

More than capturing Kony, I'd really like to see an end to the arms trade that created a whole lot of these guys, and profited from it while supporting the foreign policy of the west to fight communism through proxy wars. But maybe this is a good first step. I don't know. I've read a lot about how fucked up this shit is and just felt terrible and paralyzed by the intricacies of the mess. Starting somewhere might be beyond criticism.

According to their statistics, 31% of the donations actually go towards the cause in some way. They have refused independent audits. It's not clear that this is capable of affecting the change they purportedly seek, and I worry that that the end result is a bunch of cash for them and not much else that will be productive, whether it's out of ignorance or malice.

I don't like the way evil gets depicted as something within a single person. There are a lot of layers of evil that can be peeled back like an onion here, and show some contributions to that evil from closer to home. I still think it's a pretty cool idea in principal, but the money should work much more efficiently if they are going to make it out to be about the power of modern communications.

Something was really bugging me about seeing Sen. Inhofe in this video. Apart from being an enormous climate change denier, which could mean the people of Africa paying the biggest brunt of the problem in the worst sense imaginable, he has had a key role in getting homosexuality outlawed in Uganda with threats of it becoming punishable by death. I wasn't sure of that until i pulled up an old article from Harpers, of which I'll offer a snippet -

Quote:
Every year, right before Uganda’s Independence Day, the government holds a National Prayer Breakfast modeled on the Family’s event in Washington. Americans, among them Republican Senator Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, former attorney general John Ashcroft—both longtime Family men and outspoken antigay activists—and Pastor Rick Warren, are a frequent attraction at the Ugandan Fellowship’s weekly meetings. “He said homosexuality is a sin and that we should fight it,” Bahati recalled of Warren’s visits.

Inhofe and Warren, like most American fundamentalists, came out in muted opposition to Uganda’s gay death penalty, but they didn’t dispute the motive behind it: the eradication of homosexuality. They may disagree on the means, favoring a “cure” rather than killing, but not the ends. For years, American fundamentalists have looked on Uganda as a laboratory for theo- cracy, though most prefer such terms as “government led by God.” They sent not just money and missionaries but ideas, and if the money disappeared and the missionaries came and went, the ideas took hold. Ugandan evangelicals sing American songs and listen to sermons about American problems, often from American preachers. Ugandan politicians attend prayer breakfasts in America and cut deals with evangelical American businessmen. American evangelicals, in turn, hold up Ugandan congregations as role models for their own, and point to Ugandan AIDS policy—from which American evangelicals nearly stripped condom distribution altogether—as proof that public-health problems can be solved by moral remedies. It is a classic fundamentalist maneuver: move a fight you can’t win in the center to the margins, then broadcast the results back home.
So now I find this whole thing a little bit fucked up.
