Kony 2012..

What’s Kony 2012?

After checking to the official website of this whole thing going on, “Joseph Kony is one of the world’s worst war criminals and I support the international effort to arrest him, disarm the LRA and bring the child soldiers home.” *

Don’t you think this video is too good to be true? I mean come on. They got great editting skills and got so many people to like what they do. Have you ever asked yourself why? I’ll tell you why. Because it is P.R.O.P.A.G.A.N.D.A to get people’s minds diverted from more important things for example what’s going on in Syria.

‘The Kony 2012 film about the Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony and his child abductions has become a Facebook phenomenon, viewed nearly 76m times, and prompting reactions from the British, American and Ugandan governments. But it has also triggered fierce debate online. While advocates say it has brought attention to the plight of child soldiers in Africa, many Ugandans have questioned the tactic claiming that the portrayal of their country is out of date. ‘ **

Mass media is trying to brainwash us and many of us allow them to do so, including I did at the beginning. As soon as I watched the video, I got tears in my eyes and started tweeting quotes from it. Why? Because it is mean to have a first effect on you. However, after watching relating videos, after reading articles and just stuff online you realise that this whole ‘Kony 2012’ and ‘#stopkony” is a biiiig, huuuuge, maaaassive lie.

Why?

There have been different videos which either said that Kony is dead or out of Uganda. Either way, does he represent any danger? I mean, he’s dead. He can’t really do anything, can he? And if he’s out of Uganda then why are you still talking so much about him being there? HE IS OUT!

So:

1. Kony is dead/out of Uganda.

2. Those stories were from 5 to 6 years ago. There was no LRA attack since then.

3. If he’s so dangerous and he’s no. 1 on that ‘criminal list’ whatever it is called then WHY has no one caught him already?

4. Why just send advisers and no real troops?

 

What I’m trying to say is that before supporting something so badly, read about it. You may realise later that it is not what you tought it is.

Wanna watch the video and decide by yourself if it’s real or not?
