KONY 2012: State Propaganda for a New Generation

504

The overnight viral sensation KONY 2012 brought worldwide awareness to the African war criminal Joseph Kony. Beneath this commendable cause, lies however an elaborate agenda that is presented in the video in a very manipulative way. We’ll look at the agenda behind KONY 2012 and how it uses reverse psychology to not only justify a military operation in Africa, but to actually have people demand it.

KONY 2012 is a viral sensation that swept the entire world in less than 24 hours. Its main subject is the African rebel leader Joseph Kony, his war crimes and the clearly defined “movement” to stop him.  Countless celebrities have endorsed the movement, news sources have reported it and social media is buzzing with it. While the problem of guerrilla warfare and child soldiers has plagued Africa for decades, and several documentaries have already been produced regarding the issue, this particular 29-minute video made managed to obtain mass exposure and support.

KONY 2012 is less of a documentary than it is a highly efficient infomercial that is tailor-made for the Facebook generation, using state-of-the-art marketing techniques to make its point. Young people like “underground movements” and want to feel like they are changing the world. KONY 2012 taps into these needs to bring about something that is not “hip” or “underground” at all: A military operation in Uganda. Not only that, it urges the participants of the movement to order stuff, to wear bracelets that are associated with an online profile and to record their actions in social media. This makes KONY 2012 the first artificially created movement that is fully track-able, monitor-able and quantifiable by those who engendered it. In other words, what appears to be a movement “from the people” is actually a new way for the elite to advance its agenda.

A Propaganda Experiment

The video begins with an interesting statement: “The next 27 minutes are an experiment. But in order for it to work, you have to pay attention”. It is an experiment as it tests a new, groundbreaking way to get an agenda accepted by the Facebook generation. In the past, when the government needed to justify the invasion of a country, the President would sit in front of the camera and tell the public why war should be declared in this area of the world. In the case of KONY, the military agenda is disguised as grassroots activism, where the US army entering Uganda would be perceived as a “victory of the people”, effectively reversing the communications model.

Towards the end of the video, an image is displayed explaining how decisions (and messages) start from the top of the pyramid (the elite) and are communicated to the masses through mass media and such.

Due to the advent of social media, the above diagram has become a lot less effective to get a message across to the young generation. It is not CNN reports and the President addressing the nation anymore, it is about “liking” Facebook pages and viral YouTube videos. This is where messages now come across. Always studying, analyzing and exploiting the most effective ways to persuade public opinion, KONY 2012 appears to be an attempt to test out the effectiveness of a “viral” propaganda campaign. By creating this “movement” and making young people actually DEMAND the U.S. government intervene in Africa, the masterminds behind this campaign would manage the impossible: Reversing the propaganda model in order to make it emanate from the people. By doing so, the elite’s agenda is not only accepted by the masses, it is perceived as a victory by them.

“We are living in a new world” indeed. The KONY 2012 logo aptly represents how a viral video and social media can reverse the propaganda model. Don’t be fooled however. Power is still not in the hands of the base of the pyramid … far from it. It is all about appearances.

When the war on Iraq was declared, a great portion of young Americans opposed the war. How is it they are now begging the government to send troops to Africa? A simple video, specifically conceived for the Facebook generation did the trick. As it is the case in most campaigns to justify a war, the first goal was to identify a bad guy.

Identifying the Bad Guy

By associating Kony with Bin Laden and Hitler in this poster, KONY 2012 is promoting war.

I have absolutely no intention of defending Joseph Kony or to say “he’s not that bad”. He, along with many other guerrilla factions across Africa, has committed despicable atrocities. However, the problem of child soldiers has existed for decades and there are literally hundreds of Joseph Konys across the African continent. In some cases, some of the armies are actually funded by Western countries. If we would truly go to the root of the issue, we’d discover that Africa has been plagued with the problem of warring factions and rebel guerrillas ever since Western forces “liberated” their colonies and divided the continent of Africa according to Western interests. Indeed, instead of setting the boundaries of each country according to the geographic location of the ethnic groups and tribes that live there, countries were created according to the economic needs of colonizing forces such as Great Britain, France and others. The net result is: A bunch of artificial countries that each contain several tribes, ethnic groups, languages and religions. When one group takes power, the others are repressed, which leads to violence and rebellion. Add to the mix extreme poverty due to resources being siphoned out of Africa by Western countries and you’ve got a breeding ground for merciless warlords. As long as this problem exists, Joseph Konys will continue to emerge in Africa.

But the video mentions none of this. All it says is that arresting Kony would “make the world better”. KONY 2012 is all about identifying a bad guy, “making him famous” and have people demand his death by U.S. forces. Fixing the true cause of problems in the third world has never been on the Agenda. But picking out a “bad guy” to justify military action has always been part of it. If in the case of Saddam Hussein, “facts” (that ultimately proved false) were given to justify the invasion of Iraq. A different technique is being used with Kony, one that originates from advertising.

Any marketing specialist will tell you: “Facts don’t sell, emotions do”.  The first part of KONY 2012 solely addresses emotions. It is about making the filmmaker likeable, showing gut-wrenching images of African kids in pain, in misery and in despair. Then, the turning point: Joseph Kony is the cause of all of this. Not centuries of exploitation and devastation by Western forces in Africa that lead to chaos, lawlessness and poverty. No, it’s Kony. That bastard. George Clooney is really mad at him right now. He even tweeted about it.

Another marketing strategy is to appeal to the lowest common denominator. In other words, to get a message across, one must address the audience as if it was made of kids. KONY 2012 does exactly this by ridiculously oversimplifying the problem and explaining it to an actual child – who represents the viewers.  This is not surprising though, as this is how the masses are perceived by the higher ups.

Here’s what this scene implies: “Look, dumb-ass, even this little kid gets it. So you better get it.”

Once the viewers had their emotions stirred, got infantilized and had the problem spelled out to them as if they were in kindergarten, the table is set for the true goal of the video: Defining the agenda.

Defining the Agenda

KONY 2012 is a movement backed by some of the world’s most powerful entities and has precise goals. As the movie’s intro states, it is an experiment. It is an opportunity to create a movement that can be fully trackable, quantifiable and manageable through social media whose culmination is a U.S. military intervention in Uganda. The carrying out of this mission will not only be perceived as a victory, it will restore young people’s faith in democracy. What the members of this movement might not realize is that they are helping the advancement of the elite’s agenda towards a New World Order.

This poster aptly summarizes how the Illuminati works. Political parties are irrelevant as both work towards the same Agenda.

The second part of the movie let’s go of emotions and describes to the viewers what the elite expects from them. U.S. troops are already in Uganda, but, according to the movie, Kony “changed his tactics”… Damnit Kony, you and your sneaky tactics. Apparently, high tech satellites, unmanned drones and all kinds of radars are not enough to catch this guy. Nope, in order to catch him, a complicated plan, involving the purchase of an “Action Kit” and the registering an ID bracelet on a website is required. Makes sense.

Those who want to “Stop Kony” are required to wear a bracelet bearing a unique code which needs to be registered at a website. Of course, personal information is requested.

Once the bracelet is registered, members can associate it with their Facebook account, which will keep track of all KONY-related actions. The end result is: every single member of KONY 2012 will be known, identified and easily tracked – with constantly updated information. All of this data will of course be collected, scrutinized and stored by those in charge.

Furthermore, members are asked to contribute a “few dollars a month” to TRI, an organization whose ultimate goal is American military intervention in Uganda.

TRI’s logo is an inverted “Peace” sign. In symbolism, an inverted sign means that it stands for the opposite of the regular sign. In other words, TRI is about war. Peace does not involve “equipping” and “training” government forces to fight rebel factions. As the novel 1984 states, WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, and IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.

To support the cause and to make it popular, a bunch of elite-sponsored artists and politicians have been enlisted, including Lady Gaga, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Oprah, George Clooney, Bono, etc. While some of them might be genuinely concerned about problems in Africa, most of them are pawns of the elite that are used to promote its agenda.

Am I seeing warmongering George W. Bush in here? The dude that lied to the whole country in order to attack Iraq for its oil and stuff? Hmm. Weird.

After going past the celebrities and the emotions, the end result of this campaign is simple and steeped in real politik: Since the fall of rival superpower USSR, Western forces have sought to bring down and to control regional powers around the world, mostly in third countries. Uganda is part of that plan. The same way the spectre of Bin Laden was used to invade Afghanistan, Kony is being used to enter Uganda.

The video clearly shows what is the goal of this “movement”: U.S. troops taking charge of the Ugandan army, the same way it took charge of the Iraqi, Libyan and other armies in the past few years.

 

In Conclusion

KONY 2012 is a cleverly orchestrated campaign specifically aimed at today’s youth, the future citizens of the world. Using state-of-the-art techniques and new technologies, the campaign is a first attempt at “reverse propaganda”, where the agenda APPEARS to emanate from the people. By using emotions, irrational thoughts and superficial explanations, KONY 2012 attempts to trick well-meaning people, who desire to make a positive change in the world, to instead fuel a gigantic war machine that is controlled by the world’s elite.

Is KONY 2012 trying to eradicate child-soldiers or is it attempting to create a new kind of child-soldiers?

…Right.

Tight writing, true eye opener, never noticed the fallacies in the argument of the video

Andreas Casablancas
Andreas Casablancas

did someone noticed the pictures of the damaged children during the part he explains that there are some chils on the army that produce several injures to their faces and you may see little kids with little disorders on their faces, that's not damages caused by a weapon, the real damage is a disesase everyone believed was eradicated from europe it's called "Noma" for the curious I invite you to check on the images, if they are not the same well they are extremely similar. so USA is only trying to get on another country where no one had ask for help and if you check this disease you may be surprised it only stays on central africa, so the video becomes even more fake…

In my opinion I think the guy that did this video made the propaganda on purpose to make a point but the mass public did not catch onto it. I think he hoped that people would catch onto it (and he was disappointed when people bought into so much and that's why he ended going crazy).

Why I say this is because at the beginning of the video he says that it's an experiment, but in order for it to work you have to pay attention. Perhaps he means is that it's an experiment to see if people will be smart enough to not fall for propaganda. Even after all the talk about how an idea spreads, sadly people are so oblivious that they still fell for it.

Also while I'm on this subject it makes me think of a lot of the movies and entertainers that use so much occult symbolism, I sometimes think is there a chance that some of them are not neccesarily a part of it but rather trying to warn the public in an indirect way. But perhaps thats me just wanting to be optimistic about things but I think its possible.

Invisible Children came to my highschool two years in a row and showed the Kony 2012 film this past year. They even had most of the school read a book about what's going on in Uganda. They're definitely pushing this on us young people. I think its horrible how they are brainwashing us to declare war on Uganda by telling us of all these horrible things that are happening to the children and other people in that country. We really need to help them, but they are going to make things worse instead.

And suddenly, when oil was found in Uganda, the US pretented they wanted to help this country. I can't believe I gave 10 bucks to these f*****s who aren't going to use it for good things anyway. How could I be so brainwashed!?!??!? I regret this intensly. Yeah its just 10 bucks. But my 10 bucks are now in a illuminati agenda. I pray to God that he forgives me.

Am From Kenya Which Borders Uganda. According To My Understanding Joseph Kony Leader of LRA is No Longer a Major Threat To Uganda as The UPDF (Uganda's Military) Managed To Attack, Defeat & Takeover The Rebels Strong Holds Which Were The Nothern Parts Of Uganda. Kony & His LRA Fled Uganda & are Now in Hiding Most Probably in The Dense & Vast Forests of South Sudan Which Borders Uganda To The North. So, I Was Surprised When I came To Learn About This KONY 2012 Issue advocating For American Troops Being Sent into Uganda To Attack KONY & The LRA Yet Uganda's Forces Had Done it Before. To Me It Did Not Make Sense & I Found The KONY 2012 Suspicious & I Translated it To Be Some Sort Of a Cult Masterminded By The Illuminati Who are Rulers of The World Their Master Being Lucifer.

Someone really ought to make a viral mocumentary like this one addressing the real issues VC outlines in passing: Western powers carving up Africa for profit are the cause of all these peoples' suffering, and the dominating interests within those Western powers has a vested interest in brainwashing the youth here into a perpetual bloodlust.

This perspective has to reach more people. These are the very same criminals who tanked our economy and left countless homeless and/or in poverty. Then again, this is a very unpopular viewpoint and it's unlikely to go viral, despite the overwhelming evidence that something is severely wrong here at home, and how desperately it needs to be dealt with.

Granted, it's horrifying how little awareness is on this Orwellian nightmare of ours, but it's also kind of fascinating that the only issues which the public will feel something for are built on fallacies and concealed agendas. I think it's the ultimate sign of weakness; even if we beat these fatcat-b*****s handily at some point in the near-to-distant future, we still have to live with how pathetic it was in the interim period (right now).

I am curious about the evangelical Christians involved in Kony 2012. I attend a very straight-laced by-the-book (very bible believing) independent Baptist church and I know we would have never involved ourselves with the Kony movement. Then again my church does take measures to have people read the bible, involve the bible, and strive to keep it to the bible.

I wonder if the Christians involved are those from the emergent church who are claiming to be Christians but to be honest do not seem to be adhering anything that the church was founded on. (I do believe in the Christian doctrine and to alter it changes it to another religion all together the same would apply to any other religion–basically different sects I guess)

I think it shows how the masses are blindly following anyone based on common beliefs be it religion ties, spiritual ties, political ties etc

I am not being completely ignorant to the fact that there may well be child trafficking and war criminals in Uganda, and the rest of Africa, but I am very well aware of the fact that this video (KONY 2012) is complete brainwash!

Kudos to the masterminds behind the plan, the video appeals to the ethos, pathos and logos. It's totally unethical, yet brilliant at the same time.

I'm honestly scared for my country, Philippines. The west has been controlling us ever since and the media + government works hard to make it appear that they're only here to help us. But noooooo. They have been stealing our resources since they first got here in the early 20th century and will continue doing so until our land is depleted. As a citizen I would really want my voice to be heard, but the elite here is so strong because the government has drained education out of the masses. If this pattern happens to all third world countries in the world, i don't know what will happen next. loljk what will happen next is the dreaded WW3 but I'll give it a benefit of the doubt

To be honest, we cannot stop the NWO/Illuminati. All this 'one world government' is meant to happen guys. All we can do is make people aware of the situations and not fall for the traps. And another thing you guys need to be aware of is that the devil is NOT in control. God is. All of this will lead to the inevitable; Satan's reign will be destroyed and Jesus will finally come to take what is rightfully His. Remember; Satan may think we are in the palm of his hands, but really it is HE who is in the palm of GOD'S hands.

I´m from México, and its very strange for me that the presidente Obama met with Calderon (México´s president) to talk about the drug war in México and did not help in anything, and send troops to Uganda just beacuse some teens made a demonstration. It doesn´t have any sense.

If anyone reads this, please take a look at the political climate in Kenya. One of it politicians is backed by the western elite and this same politician is running for president. The same politician was involved in the 2007 post-election violence that almost ripped the country apart. Kenya has now discovered oil and the western interests in the country will only continue to grow. Look at the news feeds and the hearings at the hague look at the state of the country and then look at the history of the politicians vying for the presidency. Kenya is going to face some hard times ahead. I just hope some of you will spread the word if I'm not around for some reason.

For the people new on this constellation my suggestion is: to collect many quotes, e.g.: Felix Frankfurter, Supreme Court Justice, 1952: "The real rules in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes." John F. Hylan, New York City Mayor, 1922: "The real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self created screen…. At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties." And Mayer A. Rothschild said: "Give me control of a nation's money supply, and I care not who makes its laws." We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order." David Rockefeller. If Hitler said the following quote.

I knew KONY 2012 was bullshit as soon as I saw the video.. a lot just doesn't add up. The Us has probly know about this guy for years, yet has never bothered to lift a finger til now. second, there's reports that he's been dead for years, or hasn't been present in Uganda. Second this video was made in the early 2000s – around 03/04.. and plus as soon as I heard the names Jay Z rihanna and lady gaga were all for "stopping KONY" The mass of Bullshit instantly caved in on itself …

Kony 2012 is not about child soldiers or oil. It's about the petrodollar. Like in Iraq, we are less interested in extracting the oil ourselves than we are in keeping others(China) from doing so themselves.

I live I the country bordering Uganda,Zambia and child soldiers in Africa are common. VC is right KONY isn't the only criminal like that, there are so many of them, but this is only common in rural areas and contrary to popular belief most of southern Africa is pretty developed, so much so that most of the kids I go to school with had no idea that such atrocities happen so close to home until now. I know Ugandans that only found out about KONY last week!! Anyway, I knew there was something off the minute I watched this video, it was touching, but at the time I thought "I hope this isn't some scheme to get American troops into Africa." I've been reading the articles on this sight for a while now and the subjects of the articles didn't affect me much because I'm not into people like lady gaga, rihanna, Whitney Huston etc but this hits close to home and it really scares me because Uganda is literally next door!!!

Man behind ‘Kony 2012’ arrested – for masturbating in public
http://rt.com/usa/news/kony-2012-arrested-masturb

Obviously something went bad with this guy's Illuminati programming/training. Maybe this was his punishment for not doing a good job with the KONY 2012 Illuminati campaign now that it has been debunked more or less.

Kony 2012 may be a scam but I do think the cause is right. I agree that what we are doing is supporting a war, not a charity, but I definatly think that they got the word out about what was happening. World vision ads have been going for years like VC stated and yet nothing has changed. At least it has approached the new generation in a format that we understand, but we as a generation need to know what to do with this information, whether it is to like on FB, help get powers that can make a proper difference, UN etc. or give our money to a "charity" or "cause" (whether it be Kony or Green Peace) we need to know what we are doing and HOW or even IF this will affect the actual cause we are wanting to affect in a way that WE want it to be affected.

Kony 2012 narration goes with the mainstream narration, osama, hitiler, agenda….

I think it was a failure. They didn't know that many people questioned the storyline.

There are a lot of people out their that are questioning the storyline.

It failed. Kony Failed. Russell failed.

We just won by shut down and attempt in Africa.

This is about a resource war with china and global control.

The first time I saw this video for Kony 2012 I didn't even watch it. I passed right over it on youtube because I figured it was just some plot for a new movie(the same reaction I had to 9/11 before finding out the truth) then a friend of mine was over one night explaining this movement to me and my roomates. I have to say, even without watching the video first hand; hearing it explained from someone else was just as emotionally compelling. But my friend was already telling me that he thought it was a scam which sent alarm bells off in my head. Needless to say the next time I logged into VC they had already posted 3 seperate articles about the video. Before reading this article however I decided to watch the half hour advertisement for Kony 2012. The parts that alarmed me the most were the use of Jasons innocent son to point out the "Bad Guy", the forming of an army of young people, and the fact that this video is primised on being an "Experiment". Thank you vc for doing such a great job in breaking it down. You really unravelled my suspicions… Read more »

In the narrative ……."The better world we want is coming; it's just waiting for us to stop at nothing" with Saturn's rings as a visual towards the end of the movie … or Saturn's rings segueing into the inverted triangle // pyramid at the beginning.

As an African, a Nigerian, this really hits home..you described the African situation so well..

The west takes advantage of the African situation and manipulates it for their own benefit leading to the creation of wars and fighting. Like you so rightly pointed, the problem isn't Kony..but the elites manipulative grasp over much of the African continent! I'm so impressed that a westerner could picture the African situation so well and God bless you for your amazing insight! I am usually very weary when I see all these so-called Relief or awareness campaigns, cause I know for a fact that little ever gets to the masses..! Look at Haiti for example.. Almost 2yrs, billions of dollars generated and haiti is pretty much the same! In ruins! Instead of crying over what you see on TV..do your own research and make your own convictions!

I quite agree with most of the points here, except for one – the over estimation of the ability for something to go viral and actually have success more than once. Sure, more propaganda videos will go viral, but this first one already blew out our entire generation's ability to care. Notice no one's talking about it, already? It's just another video in the sea of YouTube and Netflix and I guarantee you people are more up in arms over the finale of Walking Dead than they ever will be about a documentary about african children. That's a fact. So Big Brother and the Elite can do as they please because most people are too busy with their heads up their asses to care either which way.

This whole thing is about oil, again. Last year, Uganda discovered they had oil. But, they went to Venezuela for advice about managing their resources and actually told the US "no thanks" when they offered to consult for them. Then this year out of nowhere comes this Kony BS. So I guess if you don't play ball the US looks for an excuse to invade your country and screw up everything. It's Grenada all over again.

..Early Sunday morning and the AWOL mainstream media has missed the proverbial boat on the latest Executive Order signed Friday by President Barack Hussein Obama.

Executive Order “National Defense Resources Preparedness”, in effect nationalizes all the energy, food and water currently existing on American soil.

The EO is cunningly covered under the auspices of Peace Time Martial Law at the discretion of one man.

Although now posted on the Drudge Report, at the time of this writing, only scant reportage on the Web about the signing away of liberty and individual rights.

Tea Party leaders and patriots doing Paul Revere duty by disseminating the news of Obama’s latest executive order must have sent word to websites other than Canada Free Press (CFP) overnight.

As large as life, Executive Order “National Defense Resources Preparedness” is up there on the White House website, or as one patriot wrote in her email: “Hot off the Government press”.

Minutes into watching the KONY2012 video i smelled bullshit. It was obvious to me that this was not a video made by the people, for the people. The fact that one of Africa's largest oil reserves was recently discovered there, as well as the rest of their resources, this just seems like a ploy to get USA's troops over to take control of these things. And a very clever way of gaining mass global support of an invasion of a country under the guise of a peace misson. There will be no Stop The War march for this one, as everybody will be too busy putting up Kony posters! It's frightening how it's working so well and so fast!

I definitely see what VC is saying, and I understand that it's a little sketch, but something doesn't add up to me. I don't think it's as cut and dry as this, and I really want some feedback on this. I've heard of Invisible Children and their efforts for many years, and up to now, they've been a modest organization doing a little bit of good in a non-sequitur part of the world like a nice little non-profit. I can vouch that they have been diligently working toward this goal of theirs for years. And in a week, it's managed to explode around the world and then implode. This doesn't really follow the pattern of anything else this website follows. Based on what I've observed, especially in light of what's recently happened with the founder, I've got a theory: I think this is what happened. This little non profit gets smart. It gets too smart for its own good. It has an idea to use the media in the same manner the media uses the media. But brainwashing for good. It believes in this idea. It takes a third of its budget, invests in the best creative people (like the… Read more »

It's encouraging to see so many articles and commenters see through the INVISIBLE CHILDREN-KONY 2012 propaganda. I did not watch the video and don't intend to but I want to point out two elements of visual propaganda in the pictures posted above that was not mentioned in VC's excellent article. The programming of young white children with "white guilt." The video shows a young white boy being indoctrinated. He is being told what to think. He's taught that he's responsible for all the people in the world and all their problems. It's his job to 'fix' these problems because somehow "IT'S ALL HIS FAULT." The average American child, teen, and many adults have little knowledge or experience of Africa and therefore are vulnerable to indoctrination by professionals. An innocent little kid or an ignorant adult has no defense against professional propagandists who have spent years studying and practicing the art of deception and manipulation. The picture of the large group of young people lined up like sheep "to fight war" and die for Africa also demonstrates a hidden agenda that permeates this video. (Notice the gray shirts to make them look like a herd of sheep!) The overwhelming majority of… Read more »

The narrator of the video was definitely subject to mind control/programming, just like the soldier who massacred the villagers in Afghanistan a few days ago, the programming, which also involves psychotropic medicalization, can sometimes result in agitation, confusion, anger, extreme anxiety. It's quite likely that if the Kony propagandist had been accustomed to the use of weapons and had access to them, he would have used, instead of simply pounding his fists on the pavement and swinging a guitar. The masturbatory gestures were the consequence of an instinctive, almost reflexive, response to the stress he was then experiencing because of the sudden breakdown of the psychological programming.

They have been using the same tactic over and over again to invade a country. They create a monster or stage events to get to what they want. They invaded Afghanistan with 911, Iraq with Weapon of mass destruction, Libiya with dictatorship leader and now it's talk of Iran supposedly having a nuclear bomb.

If a movement is being supported by celebrities and it's getting lots of media attention be sure that there's a hidden agenda behind it.

This documentary was definetly produced and scripted by a good hollywood producer. It had so much emotion to it and it's impossible it was done alone by Jason. Watching this documentary reminded me of "Wag The Dog" movie.

Now I think he's paying the price…see the links in the comment section about him being picked up by police in California for running around in his underwear masturbating, yelling incoherently and banging his hands on the pavement!

There’s a warrant out for his arrest for goodness sake, and despite Obama’s claim back in 2009 to be a supporter of the ICC’s pursuit of those that have cause war crimes, everyone’s focusing on a guerilla madman, because he’s easier to pin point and less messy (thanks to the politics and international ties…don’t even get me started on how much al-bashir gets in US aid every year..) ) to deal with than go after a President that’s helping protect and support his efforts while killing… Read more »

Dig deep on this history when Leopold II of Belgium went on an industrial grade slaughter extracting rubber out of the Congo in the 1880s using the people of the Congo and Uganda. It was Leopold's II's military commissioners in the Congo that started forcing their military trained thugs appointed over tribal leaders to start hacking hands off to increase rubber extraction. Joseph Kony, who is probably dead, just kept the policy going, as well as other war lords running around Africa.

I have no problem with the new media utilized for KONY 2012. When the telephone was invented, US Pres. Rutherford B. Hayes said it was an interesting invention but who would ever want to use it!? My first thought about the film recalled the patronizing great white missionary saving the 'dark continent.' However, I was encouraged to discover the real commitment of the film's creator who honored his promise to Jacob. After about 10 years the US finally paid attention and made a tangible commitment!

Have you guys noticed the pre-programming going on?

Lord of War with Nicholas Cage featured a big deal out of the name KONO. They change the name of their ship to KONO. It also has African warlords who use children to fight.

Book of Mormon, the musical comedy by the directors of South Park, is about a Uganda warlord who kills people.

What if we all actually get bracelets and register on the website with out information but then only post things like this about the video? I mean, what if we post a link to this post on VC and we expose the other side of things? Does it make any difference? I mean if they are gonna track us and everything related to the subject, maybe we can show them we are aware. Maybe we can actually make a difference.

I have friends in Australia, and they said the Kony 2012 video aired on their national television with NO commercial interruptions… they said they've had important televised conferences that have never been broadcasted that way! All of them think it's just another excuse to invade a country and rob it of its resources. They don't give a damn about the people. They found a video tape in 2006 is a British reporter who interviewed him easily. So if a reporter can find him, why do troops have to rally over there to get him. Who knows, he may already be dead, ya just never know. I was watching it and I love the whole "we stand together" vibe, but initially, i didn't understand the dog bracelets, or Kony id tags. Then I felt the video was over the top with the obvious attempt to tug at heart strings. When I saw the celebs participating in the movement, I knew right away something was up. At first I was going to buy the kit, i was rilled up lol , but after i did my own research, I came to the conclusion that this was BS. And the whole blanket the… Read more »

Unbelievable I have been a reader of vigilant for quite some time now and I try extremely hard to not let myself be swept by the current of modern brainwashing but the first time i saw this video i was completely sold. I'm a senior at my high school in california and this video was shown to me by my government teacher, he didn't give us a reason of why he showed it to us, but he did add that it "was important to us to be aware of kony and this new movement." The fact of the matter that i was able to be "bought" by the true message of the video is just proof that this new way of "brainwashing" actually works, even despite the fact that I'm aware of stuff like this. This new way of "brainwashing" the youth is very clever, very scary and very effective. This is wrong and I don't know what to do. So many kids at my school bought this, posters were put up all over my school. I feel as if all my school just fell for this mind trick. How can we reverse this?!

The funny thing is, when I first heard about this, I didn't want to jump on any conclusions straight away. I like to get as much understanding of something, before I can make my own judgement. KONY 2012, literally flooded Facebook, Google, Twitter and YouTube and I knew something was considerably wrong. Although, the rate it was going viral was adequate for civilians, (as VC puts it) we all want to be heroes.

One night after work, a colleague of mine was talking about KONY and the group that was on facebook to paint the streets red and hold banners up to protest against him. But that's what they want. They want us to run around like headless chickens, vandalising properties and generally looking out of control.

After reading this, it really has scared me how wise they are getting. It appears that they are just forever improving their methods of annihilating us.

Why demand so much power? Only God can save us.

Oh I just KNEW that there was something behind it !

My brother said that I had such a cold heart , but following VC through the years thought me that you should never believe in something celebrities (that are accosiated with mind control) and politicans are supporting and that you should question everything. And what's up with the triangles and '' new world '' talk all the time ? I litterally felt DUMB while watching the video , they even used a small child '' to make us understand it all '' I mean common ?! How far can they acctually go with trying to control us and make us feel stupid AND guilty ? I wish people that are fooled by this would read this article and understand the real intentions of Kony 2012 , but like always people will just ''go with the flow '' and support this agenda without re-searching anything about it , just like the elite wanted .

He goes on to make it abundantly clear that they actually picked off of a 'Top Bad Guys' (only those with foreign sounding names) 'most-wanted' list.

I am not stating this as an original idea by any means, and it quite likely has been addressed by now but… This has got to be a somescreen A diversion from one or a number of things… I am starting to suspect that youtube has scheduled 'Apocalypse' days, or drills.

It is scary to think that people in my class are so hung up on this campaign that they fail to see the ACTUAL meaning. They actually think that finding Joseph Kony will get rid of child soliders, when it is most likely there are loads of Kony's. Plus, the fact that Uganda has a large oil supply, it seems obvious that the US government may just start a similar war in Uganda (like in Afgan & Iraq) just to satisfy their needs. After all, the video states itself that the US government will only interfer if it affects THEMESELVES.

I was listening to a radio show here in Ireland this AM (the John Murray show, RTE Radio one) and by chance there was an Irish journo in Uganda and, by phone to the show, was saying she was sucked into this "crap" at first until she spoke to people on the ground, who couldn't understand why this is being highlighted now as life is returning to normal (people coming home from refugee camps and displacement camps) and rebuilding there lives in peace. She was told by the people Kony has been out of the country since 2006, and the last attack took place in 2007. So maybe these gung-ho youngsters should maybe ask the people of Uganda how they feel, and whether or not they want the good ole US of A "liberating them".

I have a question or even a statement. But did anyone else catch in the video (and maybe I heard wrong as well) but it said that on April 20th (Hilters Birthday) they want to basically put pictures and stuff up everywhere about KONY. And then in the video he's says that the video would only be airing until Dec. 31st. How come? Is there a reason or Does anyone else find that a little strange? Again maybe I heard it wrong or something but if anyone would like to fill me in that would be great! Thanks!!!

Kony 2012 ? Joseph Kony, and his army have not been seen or heard from in 6 years. Yes it is it been happening since the 80"s now all of a sudden people care ? Yes. The Uganda Government have been using child soldiers since the beginning of their regime. They are trying to get you to think Kony is the one that cuts and mutilates children. Uganda and that area of the world is full of Oil and other natural resources, so our government will go there eventually. They are just trying to make YOU agree with the madness.The act of demanding our government to kill an evil man is an eery resemblance of what happened after 9/11. INVADE IRAQ!! cried the patriots of America. Turned out to really be a war for oil. To establish a military presence. The video that sparked the movement completely appeals to ethos, or emotion. It was meant to pull on the young and naive americans heart strings. (Note at the beginning of the vid Jack russel states "This is an experiment."). I was uber down for the cause UNTIL I did the research and found facts the video never stated. #1 Kony… Read more »

…so where is all this headed??? if the NWO argument is fair and right, then the Illuminati is fighting a winning battle — a one-world government is thus, SURE in the near future. What happens . . . ? Nobody should accuse Illuminati perhaps; they are a smart industry taking advantage of the flaws of humanity to make living worthwhile. Simple! Their actions however, may cause grave injuries to humanity, but often times they attempt to take responsibility, try to help the outcomes and repercussions as much as they think they should. They may not be living for you and that is what we ought to understand. They are pretty serious about their business, and so must everybody be. The only reason to brand them 'evil' is setting them on a 'righteousness' pedestal, then you may accuse them — of lacking love. So let him who is 'righteous' call the Illuminati 'evil'. So Humanity is flawed! But i'll tell you of the loving wisdom of the Creator of our universe: When all was evil and shame, a second Adam came to the fight, and to the rescue came.

This is propaganda indeed! Kony was flashed out of Uganda in 2005 by gov't forces(UPDF), he is beleived to be in central Africa. People in N.Uganda have since been re-settled by the Ugandan gov't. There's peace now and a promising future for the people. I wonder why help did not come in at the time it was most needed, why at such a time as this??

Yesterday youths in N. Uganda(Lira Town) disrupted screening of the controversial film "Kony 2012", it ended prematurely after a group of youths attacked the organisers, the disgruntled youths pelted the organisers with stones, they said the film only brought back sad memoories of war and also accused the organisers who also included inetrnational journalists of seeking to profit from their misery.

This is from an article somebody posted a little earlier:

This is classic “Problem-Reaction-Solution” strategy as David Icke has written about in his books.

It works like this. The US public and the world will be appalled at an American invasion of Uganda to steal their oil, so they create a “Problem” namely Joseph Kony and his exploits.

It causes a “Reaction” from the public…screaming, “Something must be done”.

Then they offer the “Solution”, which is the invasion of Uganda…

Bam! The oil is theirs and everyone is happy. Another bad bogeyman has been killed or captured. And on top of it they can plant their World Army in Africa called Africom (whose temporary headquarters are in Stuttgart Germany) to further secure minerals and other riches in Africa.

So…I finally decided to devote the thirty minutes of life required to watch this video in its entirety. I must say I am almost surprised about a few things, one being that this is getting beat up pretty badly even by the major mainstream media (CNN, Huffington Post, Guardian UK, etc..hardly 'underground' media…not to suggest that latter is not quite easily controlled itself as it obviously quite often is. One guess is that it is simply too embarrassing and blatant for anyone to want to attach themselves to (journalists, anyway). I do not see how it would be possible to present oneself as a 'serious' journalist and at the same time offer support for this cause. Choosing to support this agenda and then pretending not to be able to see through this video..er..experiment would be a tall order. Surely (I would think) one would need to be either in a some kind of borderline 'vegetable' state or otherwise be one of the many some ones currently unboxing their 'Action Pack' (without a hint of irony in mind) to possibly pass for being dense enough not to see this for what it is.

This man is despicable. " Thank you! I can't believe I got this far down in the comments and nobody mentioned the foul use of his own child (if that really is his child) in this video.

I really think the author of this article has missed the point entirely. It was not the aim to send troops to fight, as had been done by the US in Afganistan and Vietnam, rather to send advisors, hence the low number of troops sent. The experiment was not about creating a way to manipulate millions of youth through propaganda and mass marketing, that's been done to death by Mao in the Chinese revolution, and so many others. There is no experiment here. Rather the experiment is about how can the world work together in a more globalized, unified community to share information, solve complex problems, keep the world safe, bad guys stopped and powerful guys accountable. It's easy to be synical and skeptical, but this kind of thinking destroys the possibility of people working together as a community. A new way of thinking is required to make the good changes for our future, such as environmental issues, economic and humanitarian issues. Rather than criticize how it was done or spend time undermining people's intention, let's put our brains to work to figure out how we can all work together more effectively to solve global problems…then I will consider the… Read more »

thank you so much …we need to find solution.

i think vc made ok points but talking about it in this manner makes it seem like child soldiers are the iluminati.

anony

the point of these articles is awareness, which is the first step to solutions.

the solution is to be educated, aware, organized, to plan long term, and to do it ourselves and *not* fall prey to people or organizations who are absolutely not working in the world's best interests, and who make their criminal activities look charitable.

only when we educate ourselves can we recognize who the *real* criminals are, and then search for truth and solve problems according to that.

the article doesn't make the kids look like illuminati, it shows us the incredible danger of falling prey to propaganda and serving harmful interests – that entire multitudes of people can easily end up being pawns for the illuminati. why are we so lost in our own little bubble lives that we needed to hear about KONY to give a damn about african kids? if we can figure that out, maybe we can start solving some problems.

anony

the article also highlighted the *real* problems, which are very far removed from this KONY hype. and those are severely long term, political problems. start working on those. you or a bunch of people who're not going to be fooled by propaganda that will bring more harm to Ugandans – you can learn about uganda, research on how to get there, find out the problems people are *really* suffering from (and you're not likely to get the truth from the KONY2012 team) and set up stalls for free medical services/education, whatever you want. we can't change the world, but we can change the people around us. so go and be around the people you want to help, maybe you'll figure out something better. whatever you do, stay educated and don't get fooled by propaganda – it might actually destroy people in the disguise of helping.

your head is in the right place to question military action in Uganda, and question whether this is propaganda. However, THIS time… it isn't. It's people who geniunely would like a madman stopped. The government has ignored this problem for over a decade… if it was a priority to them they would have done it long ago. They don't CARE what "the facebook generation" thinks. Otherwise they wouldn't be in Iraq or Afghanistan. This video is too smart to be made by anyone within the government

Thankyou Vigilant Citizen. I had another few 'stop and go wow moments' reading this article. Although Im not entirely sure that the US government is really interested in mobilising troops on any large scale war, remembering that Uganda is hugely impovrished and that the LRA is no longer operating withing Uganda. I understand your points here though. There are still some things that will remain to be seen for the meantime. I immediately got suspicious and rubbished this video when confronted with all my freinds posting it. I thought surely there can't suddenly be a cause where the masses are united in defeating a convicted war criminal there is no such thing as a mass of good will, previously uneducated on this to unite for justice without being brainwashed and manipulated by the elite. The elite are looking for more elaborate ways to decieve the public and hats off to Invisible children for what is a well played propaganda tool to distract the masses in what is a big year ahead.

Just shocking. LMAO Angeline Jolie talking about Kony as if shes known about him for years, they just said " do you think Angelina Joile is pissed off that hes managed to abduct more children than she has" lol The whole thing is very sinister and really quite scary too, the agenda they are pushing that is not Kony, not that am sure he isnt scary but well….. we are all becoming more aware of things like this and what they really are about thanks to people like VC!!!

Kony has really done a lot of in-human atrocities. I do not support KONY at all, but the moment i watched the video, i knew there was something off about it. Firstly, i realized that KONY was the 1st on the ICC's list and Ghadafi was somewhere 24th. I was like, if KONY is 1st and Ghadafii 24th, why wouldn't the worst guy be captured first. if the US claims they care about others and what leaders do, why didn;t they care about the children of uganda? the people had to push them to take action? ooh, i know! ghadaffi was a real threat to the activities of the west in africa, so with ghadafi gone, everything would be simple. Secondly, if you wanna catch a bad guy, why do you make it public? it would only make it more difficult cause the guy would only hide and prevent capture. Also, the whole pyramid thing was disturbing. Africa is a money making continent for the west, they've always controlled africa but gaining full control and support from the masses is what would make it sensible.

Great insight and analysis. I think this is spot on. People are being manipulated and their consent manufactured for further foul deeds by a very slick campaign. Whose interests does this serve? The intro re ‘In the past, when the government needed to justify the invasion of a country, the President would sit in front of the camera and tell the public why war should be declared in this area of the world’ was perhaps a slip of Freudian proportions. When did ‘invading’ any country become Ok and /or the norm? as opposed to right of self defence or coming to the aid of an alley under terms of pre existing agreements /treaties and the like. … OK the US has been invading other smaller /weaker countries with greater frequency in the last couple of decades- but at least people knew on some level that such actions were wrong or immoral on some level. Now people are being prepared far in advance of further invasions…under the guise of humanitarian interventions. Such barefaced lies and cynicism can be very corrosive- once people wake up and see how they have been conned into implementing someone’s greedy agenda[ mostly to late], many will… Read more »

I am surprised all that was understood from the video was the US trying to invade Uganda. Kony is bad, he and all like him are bad. They should be stopped. The US sent 100 people! God, prepare for the invasion. I agree Africas problems are much older and yes caused by interventon from other countries. The problem is that the problems continue, nothing us done and blaming others will not help. Do not agree on the strategy? Propose one better, complaining the big bad US is at it again just shows the lack of care for the problem. Doing is better than not. Critizicing is easy, making proposals, even not great ones, is what we all should do. Finally, no where in the video is any ody asking for military intervention or the death of Kony, that is what You read from it. What I read was, stop this man, stop kid soldiers and give a dam. Obviously contradicting this video also brings notariety to does that do it and promotes their own agenda and propaganda. Yes, I noticed that in the article. Again I believe we should all ask the best of people instead of looking for the… Read more »

Military intervention is the whole purpose of the video. What, you think tweeting or liking the video is going to get rid of Kony. And what do you suppose the brilliant minds behind the video meant by "stop Kony"? They're not going to say "kill him", but we can read between lines. Let's face it, we already know how the US military operates (i.e. Bin Laden, Rafael Trujillo, Pablo Escobar).

I knew it was propaganda by the way it was shoved down our throats. I ran from KONY and every which way I turned it was KONYx3 until I felt forced to watch. I formed an opinion before I watched the video or knew what KONY was !

After watching the video allowing it to pull a few heart strings

I held my thoughts. I knew the truth would surface and it did quicker than I thought. The Ugandan's themselves were the first to start speaking out. Oil is another word that started flying around.

What I do like about the situation is that we have a lot of people waking up and now you can't just throw a video out there and the people eat it up. Time to come up with new methods. Manipulation is a thing of the past. 2 years ago they could have gotten away with it.

Well, first of all, I'm quite ashamed to say that despite the symbolism and the obviousness of the NWO, I fell for this. Even though I told myself that the triangles, ID bracelets and celebrity endorsements meant only one thing [the NWO], I still tweeted about it, and posted the link on facebook.

I think, like VC said, it really gets to your emotional side. I've been an avid supporter of helping children and people in need and giving charity, so it affected me. Though I tweeted and everything about it, I msged VC about the video a few times as soon as I saw the video.

I can't believe they would be using such a sensitive topic to as an advantage to get something. Sick, really.

Now, I've made it a point spreading information that Kony 2012 is a fake and the organization has lots of flaws, though we can help people through other organizations.

This video is excellent and you cannot not believe it with all the proof the lady is providing:

Things like these just prove that the US government is incapable of doing ANYTHING out of goodwill. Even in the video itself the narrator states that the US government won't intervene if it doesn't effect them politically or economically. Which brings us to the coincidence of US troops being deployed in Uganda…. After oil was found. Yes, oil has been found in Uganda (some 2 billion barrels). And now the US all of a sudden wants to help.

Confused
Confused

I'm a little confused by this, while I agree with the points made in the article, I do think if we remove the whole "agenda" element and zone in on the issue (which has been perverted) is that there are countries which are subjected to such attrocities. The eye opener for me, which forced me to a position to repent was how my world was so centred around me, how ungrateful I was and how I'm no one special but was just fortunate to be born in the UK where I have greater freedoms than those in other countries. If you take away that point then I dont think the video is wrong, because personally I didn't note the whole "illuminati/NWO" issue, I was instantly drawn to being a more charitable person (whether its through Invisible Children or not) and living a lifestyle that helps others on a day to day basis rather than taking everything for granted and not showing an "attitude of gratitude".

All the people that say the Kony movement is propaganda all say the same thing: that it's manipulative, speaks to people's emotions, that Kony is a bad guy and deserves to go down, that people don't realize that what they are pushing for is military action, and that Kony is no longer in Uganda. The thing is… THE VIDEO SAYS ALL THAT! It says in the beginning: "This is an experiment". You already know they are trying to make this viral and do things that would prompt you to share the video. Also, no one can deny that Kony needs to go down… of course they also need economic help but hello?? Do you know how much money Invisible Children is spending on RESTORING damage Kony has done? Furthermore, how can people not realize they are pushing for military action? The U.S. already has troops out there… we all know what soldiers do. Don't get all in a huff because we're trying to kill someone that everyone admits deserves to be killed. And about the arguement that is must be propeganda if celebrities are on board. That's not always the case. What some people don't realize is that Invisible Children… Read more »

I have nothing against people being charitable and having a genuine concern for the welfare of others, but once US politics becomes involved then I get concerned. The USA has always been on a crusade to democratize various countries they see as being incorrectly governed and seem to pick and choose evil bad men to chase after. No doubt Kony is a bad man, but he just seems to be the token evil man threatening YouTuber's freedom for 2012, perpetuating this so called 'war on terrorism'. What real threat is Kony to the rest of the world, or even Uganda at this stage? Africa is a diverse continent with so much beauty and flavour and all the developed world is shown is starving children with flies in their eyes, child soldiers, burning buildings and violence. This stereotype of Africa has never gotten old… Sadly Africa will always be seen as being in need of foreign aid and new governance. We have our fare share of problems over here… but there is a lot of poverty, crime & suffering in the slums and derelict areas in modern cities in the first world too.

Thank you V.C. "It's never been a peaceful world, and it may possibly never be.. ..until a one-world government comes to stay". This makes sense and perhaps if one thinks it through one will figure it out. It happens all of the time, everywhere around us – even in our various ''free'' homes and classrooms and neighborhoods and playing fields and communities etc. Some man must lead, govern perhaps, — even if by a set of laws, some clueless* men must make them. But who must this men be? Man must certainly look up to somebody, if not something, who will teach — if not make him understand — the phenomena of universe, including freedom. Essentially, Humanity is flawed! NWO agenda is only alarming simply because it's happening on a global scale. [thanks V.C. for your excellent works] …so don't you begrudge Illuminati; one-world government makes sense to them, too, and as for the sacrifices to be made in order to get through with the agenda, they may not have to be questioned. But if their agenda were rescuing, we would not cringe. The agenda have always been some clueless means to achieve some perfect world but have always fallen… Read more »

I personally don't like or agree with this article. Normally I love VCs articles because it opens my eyes to a new understanding, but in this case the article just made me angry. This is a video that really is just trying to help others besides ourselves. Though it may include some ideas that have been used to manipulate us, I strongly agree that it was used this time for good instead of evil. In the end I think they were very smart and handled this better than any other organization.

Maybe now that Invisible Children raised all this awareness and funding coupled with the fact that the media has in turn begun scrutinizing their marketing and campaigning efforts, they will be held at a higher degree of accountability than before?

I totally hear what you're saying and respect your point of view. At the same token, is it not better to bring awareness to the LRA and see people get involved as opposed to sitting on the sidelines and doing nothing?

Ok, I am from Uganda and Kony was (is) very bad years ago, more than 20 years ago. During all that time, he commited his attrocies and Uganda did not get any help from outside. But Behold! Oil is discovered and suddenly Uganda [needs] to be rescued!

Hey VC! Thanks for this article.

I am originally from the DRC and when I saw that a group of people were being mobilized to get the leader of the LRA, I was really happy…until I saw the Kony 2012 video.

They are not telling the whole story and they damn right leave out the facts that Uganda is located near the Coltan mining source in the DRC and that the DRC troops have refused to let in Uganda's troops in order to search for Kony and are doing it on their own. ( OK the Congolese government is one of the worst in Africa so I believe they might have struck deals with the Chinese or whomever bids the highest).

What is heartbreaking is that the people who endorse this idea ( movie stars, singers etc) have no idea what they are even talking about and they go around parading as if they are the latest experts on the matter.

By piquing all our emotions and attention, all us normal folk on the ground are watching, and expecting an end to the child prostitution, abduction and slavery. Isn't it at least a good thing SOMETHING is finally being done about it?

Thanks for your perspective, VC.

I did some of my own research and found these interesting tidbits of information:

1. Africa expert J Peter Pham criticized the Kony 2012 movement for simplifying the conflict and for having bad timing in releasing this video because U.S. troops are currently in the ground in Central Africa and their kind of diplomatic efforts work most effectively "in the shadows"; he also said that this Kony 2012 movement has in effect "stirred up a hornet's nest." according to the article here

2. From that same article: "The Obama administration sent 100 special operations troops in October (2011) to work with Ugandan forces to root out Kony and his band of fighters. Another group of U.S. forces is working with the Congo and other neighboring countries to catch Kony."

Wait….since when were American special operations troops in Uganda??

Hmmm…is this new information to anyone else?

ECC

SOS: it's not a surprise to me that their are special forces chasing down Kony and the LRA, but we have been following this story for a number of years as my wife's been to Uganda a few times as a missionary. It's just a story (the whole story…not just the fact that their are special forces in Africa) that's been buried on the back page of the newspaper.

Here's an interesting article from a South African news site, dating from last October.

http://dailymaverick.co.za/article/2011-10-17-us-

The author is commenting on Obama's move to send 100 troops into Central Africa to go after Kony. He posits that the troops are actually meant to be an incentive/reward the Ugandan government (payment for services rendered, in effect). Their presence also would make it easier to pursue Islamic militants in the region.

Alten

I very much agree and I'd upvoted your stand-alone post. In case it wasn't clear, I consider the links I posted (especially the White House plan, since it is straight from the horse's mouth) to be unambiguous evidence of an imperialistic motive on the part of the United States in regards to their pursuit of the LRA. Whether oil, minerals, or Al Qaeda are involved is almost irrelevant, in a way. The US is definitely engaging in state-building and manipulation, and that's plenty destructive in and of itself. The US elites aim to maintain dominance over the world in part by controlling the leaders of various countries, using their "aid" as a powerful bargaining chip. We know this because they say so outright in their own publicly available documents. Egypt is struggling to free itself of those chains right now, and the US government is alarmed at this because the refusal of its gifts also means a refusal of all the attached strings. I think it's possible that the people at Invisible Children actually are grass-roots and that they truly do believe that it was their campaigning that led the president to sign on the anti-LRA act in 2010.

“If we would truly go to the root of the issue, we’d discover that Africa has been plagued with the problem of warring factions and rebel guerrillas ever since Western forces “liberated” their colonies and divided the continent of Africa according to Western interests.”

Wrong. Tribal wars predate colonialism and have existed since time immemorial.

“Indeed, instead of setting the boundaries of each country according to the geographic location of the ethnic groups and tribes that live there, countries were created according to the economic needs of colonizing forces such as Great Britain, France and others.”

Wrong. This wouldn’t have been feasible since most of these tribal groups are just too small for each to have their own states, and because most of them were nomads, temporarily settling where they was fertile land for cattle to graze and then moving on to other places when the former was depleted.

“The net result is: A bunch of artificial countries that each contain several tribes, ethnic groups, languages and religions. When one group takes power, the others are repressed, which leads to violence and rebellion.”

This was the case and would have still been had the colonialists not set foot there.

As a South African, I drive past homeless children on a daily basis. On every street corner stands a child in ragged clothes begging. What many people don't realise is that these children have to answer to an adult who takes all the money from them and will even go as far as injuring them (chopping of a limb, etc.) so that people driving past in their smart cars eating a big ice cream will feel sorry for them and hand money over. Of course, these kids don't see a cent of it and still sleep outside in the cold without food. Some kids even sell their bodies just to survive. Might I mention some of these kids are as young as 3 years old? If not younger. In a town not far from where I live abandoned buildings are filled with mattresses and young boys and girls used as sex slaves, they have no way of escape! They have families searching for them too!

To the author of this article: Did you notice that the newspaper featuring the headline "Kony Captured" actually contains the paper of Sept. 11 2001?

Plus the video lied, Kony left Uganda at least 5-6 years ago. He's been defeated and moved on to Congo. Why didn't they mention that?

Then the night migrations are over and those kids are now adults with a different set of problems like HIV-AIDS, nodding Disease (which has no cure) and a high unemployment rate.

Gulu is now a booming town. Why didn't they say anything? The Ugandans are talking but of course they won't get the same attention online or offline. If you're interested here are a couple of links.

Greetings!

I'm very happy that you did an article on this, VC. I have been telling the same thing to my friends, but they don't believe me and continue promoting this crap. This is all a scam and I hope no one falls for it. I realized nowadays that our generation don't think at all and it's up to the artists in the industry to make a change, but I highly doubt that will happen.

Extremely off topic, but why do you always post on VC articles as Drake? As a weird joke? Or are you seriously that delusional?

I want the truth
I want the truth

Artists alone cannot make that change. We need clear-headed, non-corrupt individuals from ALL industries and walks of life to work together to make any change. I don't think social media really does much except increase awareness, and even then, only a handful of people will be inspired to do much more than just, oh I don't know, share and 'like' on every social media channel and donate for some awareness kit that adds to the organisation's profits. Not many people will want to go and do some charity work on the ground and at least have a direct impact on the needy's lives. However, what artists CAN do, is to dedicate a substantial amount of their time and money to do ground work without the intention of earning positive publicity for him/herself, but with genuine intention of wanting to directly improve the lives of the people affected. The same goes to every individual I mentioned earlier. It is to lead by example, and to teach the affected people how to fish rather than give them the fish all the time; to groom the affected to be independent and to develop a close-knit self-sustainable community. If the affected can ultimately inspire… Read more »

I knew this whole Kony2012 was a lot of sophisticated well staged BULLSHIT.

I didnt even watch the entire video. Just took me well around 3min into the doc to realize what a lot of crap it was. The blatant agenda their trying to shove in my faces was just hard to ignore. And seeing the kony bracelets just further confirmed my suspicions. I'm disgusted how there are people in the world who would use real case scenarios in order to fulfill their sick fantasies of invasion and world order. Absolute fuckery.

LOOL whoever started this whole Kony ish wasn't smart. I mean did they not know some people will do their research? Well I did, and surprise surprise, Joseph Kony has been out of power for 6 years…and the "bad army" of his they're trying to stop is a weakening and dying force already. Oh and the money that's being donated? Um yeah only 30% actually goes to Uganda and the rest is all in their pockets. I mean, seriously if you're gonna brainwash people into giving you money by acting like you're helping people in need, at least choose an existing issue like the Syrian war happening now or people dying of cancer or w.e. Then again, more people are willing to hop onto the bandwagon and support everything being flung at their face instead of asking questions. "How fortunate for leaders that their men do not think". Tuche Hitler….tuche.

china already has a strong influence in Africa when it comes to resources… i cant imagine the US not trying to get in on it. china is our biggest rival economically. just try'in to put the pieces together. ether way its all a pattern. eaaach invasion seems to have a double motive… no…a few or MORE motives under the motive that is 'stated'.

but ill be the first one to say, i jumped on to the bandwagon too. but my sister was the one who gave me the red flag saying stuff like: "Kony has been going on and us military has been to Uganda and a lot of charities like that only give about 3% of there earnings to the people ( or something like that), etc" but not the huge amount there are requesting know. she's also taking African studies, so she never supported Kony 2012 any way.

When the words “The next 27 minutes are an experiment. But in order for it to work, you have to pay attention” cross your ears, and the content being viewed was discovered by heavy promotion of the masses, question everything. This is what my mind instantly did, yet by the middle of the film I still found myself prompted to tweet “STOP KONY”. The next second, reality hit me.. the only information I had on Kony, this cause, and most of what I knew of invisible children came solely from this video, and it stopped me in my tracks. If anything, I at least needed to devote some time to researching the alleged “information” Invisible Children was shoving in the face of my generation. So I finished watching the film, and commenced research. Sure enough, within 1 hour of research I found proof that a vast amount of the information Invisible Children provided in the film was misleading and not based on current facts. Their lack of financial transparency, promotion of war, and large celebrity & political support (obvious elite affiliation) should make everyone want to research the facts. I can tell you, this is not the case.. sadly. Majority… Read more »

Bashing Kony 2012? Read this & consider if you are part of the solution or the problem: http://s3.amazonaws.com/www.invisiblechildren.com

How can so many people belittle this effort on FALSE charges of financial misdeeds and a ridiculous statements like "I'd find something better to do with the money". Yeah, right – spend it on yourself. How is it bad to (as promised) use the funds they've raised to make a wildly successful campaign to get their goal accomplished (imprisoning Kony – not a war in Africa or military strikes in Uganda or whatever this article is implying). Seems like a worthy cause. If they hadn't made the film / campaign, none of us would even be considering this issue …or any of the other injustices that are happening right now in Africa. Is that money poorly spent? Is that a wrong agenda? Seeing one visible and obviously malevolent personality like Kony go on trial can only help to ensure that the next generation's "Kony" will not get away with it. Sounds like a good start.

Nomorekool-aid
Nomorekool-aid

Come on man….geesh. What are they putting in our air??? Joel, seriously? Credible organizations have been working around the clock for decades to provide aid to many countries who have experienced the tyranny of a Kony. The media has reported on similar situations for years but how quickly do we forget. Many don't act until social media i.e. celebrities tell them it's ok to act. Critics of phony 12 are saying loud and clear there needs to be something done, but framing one guy is not going to solve a damn thing. It sickens me when the sleep try to wake up other folks . Get yourself dressed first.

This country is too torn to be sewing up other countries. We've been committing genocide in this country since the first pale foot stepped foot on the Native's land.

Joel

Ok Nomorekool-aid, so your solution is what? Nothing? It's far worse for all these people worldwide to ignore this now that everybody knows about the situation because that empowers others to do evil like Kony has done. That's ridiculous to say that the USA is in no place to act on the world stage because of past wrongs. America has defended the world from things like communism, Nazism, and dictatorships of all sorts. Sometimes our leaders have gotten things wrong… REALLY WRONG. So should we never attempt to do another thing right?!? I have Native American friends (and some N. American heritage myself) and I know many would agree that America is not some great Satan nor is it the savior of the world. But America aside… what are the "credible organizations" you are speaking of? Why not actually champion SOMEONE who is doing something worthy rather than advocating that we all sleep in our burning house? Pathetic.

I know our gov't and corporations played a role in the deaths of 911 and Katrina (that is just two) yet I'm suppose to show patriotism when we become saviors to the world? Sorry, can't do it. I will pray for the world because the hand that is feeding them is the same sick hand feeding me. Its sad that you even question the real good that people do for their brothers and sisters in this world. I volunteer and give continuously.

Why dont YOU (everyone) start exposing these elites yourself like I do to my family and friends. People I love. No I do not have my own website which I use VC for reference and support.

I chew up the meat and spit out the bones with every thing I take in. Even from VC! I think its a waste of energy to scrutinize someone's appreciation for VC, who is taking the time to share their opinion and interpretation with us, many of whom are just now grasping what is really happening around them.

I woke up one morning and discovered that my news feed had been spammed by literally everybody on my facebook with this video KONY 2012. I clicked the link and saw a rather long video and being so easily bored, I didn't have the attention span to sit and watch it. I never really got the gist of what it was all about, I just knew it had something to do with: 1) a villain, 2) crisis in Africa. Immediately I then thought to myself, "why does the world suddenly care about third world problems?" This angered me. I never bothered to learn what it was all about, I just knew that it seemed sort of artificial – how could this issue suddenly creep up into the world of the internet and go viral within hours of me not having accessed a computer? There was everything from Tshirts to events where everybody "speaks up" for a day. I thought that vigilant might post an article about this being a peculiar phenomenon, and low and behold, here the article is a week later.

I have never been more thankful for laziness until now.

We, as a society, tend to only do good when it is publicly known and easy to be involved. So although I can't clearly state that I agree with the movement, I do think it's a good way to market to the youth. Sure, they're buying something.. but this is better than marketing an item without a purpose.

If Kony is out there.. he needs to be brought down. It probably won't happen by the Ugandan army b/c it seems that they're pretty corrupt themselves and it probably won't be The "Kony2012" group. At least this group is shaking the youth of the nation. At least their successfully motivating suburban Americans to learn something new.. that doesn't involve self-idol individualism.

They may not be the answer but there's so much corruption out there that who are we to put them down.

And sadly, all this support and sympathy from people – especially from the young adults – for this Kony campaign (which has absolutely nothing to do with the rights of American citizens and involves a situation that is happening worlds away), but same said people in this country can't be bothered to organize to march on Washington to demand answers for the clandestine passage of the NDAA. Ha! The majority of Americans don't even know what that is, and when you point them in the direction of it, they get all frustrated and don't even want to try to read the language in the Bill and fully understand what it means for their basic rights and freedoms. Why are you bothering yourself, allowing yourself and your emotions to be worked into a wild frenzy, ready to march and protest in the streets over something that is happening on another continent and is out of your control, but you slept a good slumber while your basic Constitutional right to freedom of peaceful assembly (among other rights and freedoms) was stolen from you like a thief in the night by the very same elected officials you are now supporting in their campaign… Read more »

Young minds are so easily shaped and I felt that my friends jumped on this bandwagon way too quickly. I admit when I first saw it, it got me, but I decided to do some research. I hope more young people decide to look for answers and not just interpret information they are given all the time as correct.

Okay, one thing (which amuses me to no end). That "inverted" peace sign? As I understand it, that's actually a true peace sign. It's a representation of the tree of life. The peace sign that the hippie generation used was intentionally inverted to corrupt its power from the beginning. Remember that this was a time when occult-steeped high-ranking former Nazis were in the CIA and other alphabet agencies. This deliberate corruption of the youth has only just come hilariously full-circle.

I never liked Facebook. I could tell from the beginning that it was a monstrous parody of the social networking impulse designed to control and direct an emerging consciousness. However, I think the people of this would, particularly this country, could benefit from a little viral campaign of our own.

Of this article. Quickly, before it's too late. -_-

Syrus

I've actually been wondering for a little while now when somebody would start using that tree-of-life sign in a movement and how fast people would start bitching about the occult significance of an inverted symbol. By the way, TRI = Tree.

This particular interpretation comes from the Plejaren material so take it with a grain of salt, please.

peace is non existen

Regardless of the fact that this TRI symbol is a real peace sign or a fake peace sign or an inverted, upside down, rotated sign or this or that… the situation remains a disaster… there will be another war… and another one after that… and another… sigh

Peace? In another galaxy, maybe.

Your focus determines your reality. Keep thinking like that, and you only deprive the world of your good will and positive influence. The road to peace is a deceptively simple one, and yet there is such a thing and we'll find it soon enough. True peace, not this nonsense about creating a despotic world government and tranquilizing people with force. I wouldn't be so cynical.

Truth Teller

@ Syrus (and anyone else caught up in the inverted peace sign subject): I agree with what Peace is Nonexistent says. I also agree with what Vivek says in an above comment – “As I understand it, the arms upwards is the true peace symbol, its inversion is war-like. But then again, most people think arms down is peace.” However, by partaking in this futile argument over the origins of the peace sign you are detracting people from the underlying, and all around more important issues at hand. Quite frankly, the origins of a symbol are only relevant in context to how that symbol is being used (or rather what it means) culturally. In actuality, what “most people think” is the only thing relevant to the people who attempt to manipulate and construct our very thoughts, does that make any sense? Many would agree that “Symbols are our oldest form of visual (nonverbal) communication and convey meaning beyond what's obvious. Symbols are pictures, images, or objects used to represent ideas, concepts, beliefs, attitudes, or feelings. Symbols can have deep meaning and can evoke powerful emotion, such as the crucifix in Christianity or the Star of David in Judaism.” (Hill, 2006)… Read more »

I would only add that there may be more significance to certain symbols than the mere subjective meanings which the majority of people ascribe to them. An intrinsic power in some cases, rather than instrumental. There are a number of reasons for this, but your point is well-made.

But Kony(the LRA) is NOT the biggest problem in Uganda, in fact Al Queda is. I support the cause to help the children that have been brainwashed and taken in a child soldiers/sex slaves BUT many ppl dont know the organization is messed up, only 31-32% of the money goes to Ugandans. Also Kony is no longer in Uganda, in fact he hasnt been there for 5-6 years … i suspect that he is dead.

And the US isnt going to invade Uganda they have no actual interest, unless the President of Uganda allows to do so, Uganda isnt as bad as the whole youtube documentary paints it. The US and Uganda know damn well that Kony isnt anywhere in Uganda…

"Another marketing strategy is to appeal to the lowest common denominator. In other words,to get a message across, one must address the audience as if it was made of kids. KONY 2012 does exactly by ridiculously oversimplifying the problem to an actual child – who represents the viewers. This is not surprising though, as this is how the masses are perceived by the higher ups." (VC)

Good point. The globalist elite see us as "profane" (Freemasonic) or "goyim (Jewish), but don't we who know this stuff say the same thing? We call the masses "sheeple" for being stupid for not seeing the "obvious" agenda of NWO.

Maybe the masses really are the "profane" or goyim" or even "untermensch?" The difference has to be what we do with the goyim/untermensch/profane/sheeple = (GUPS)?

What direction should the illuminated point out to the GUPS? What motivations do the wise disseminate to the GUPS? What purpose should the Ubermensch create for the GUPS?

Great article as always VC. There is now so much info for and against so many different causes, countries and people, I think we are all getting into a place of being more and more disconnected to anything that we think we might want to stand for. This very article (as truthful as it may be) is watering down what we were all completely passionate about one week ago. I was raised to believe in America. I was raised as a Christian. Those two things are seeming to bee more and more at the root of so many problems that I don't know what (outside of myself) to believe in. Facts are nothing more than opinions now. Is Kony a real person or is he an internet version of "Wag the Dog?" I don't know. So much propaganda has been spread as truth, I'm completely unsure of anything at this point. At the end of the day, all any of us have is our gut. Our gut reaction to anything is usually correct. To all of you who are reading this, go with your gut. The truth is inside.

i knew right away this video blew up because the people behind it wanted it to blow up ,the views on youtube were all fabricated to make it popular all over the world .the movie that came out "machine gun preacher"had kony at the end ,and it was a way for them to introduce us to what they want to achieve =finding and killing kony.I think now that they have the whole sheeple generation brainwashed to believe this kony guy is going out and killing 30.000 people every night the mainstream media will one of these days blow up the tv news that president obama has got the word on kony's location and had sent our navy seals to kill him and they did which in return will make obama more popular with the younger people just around the corner from the election.they probably have him frozen in a freezer somewhere and will just unfreeze him and put a bullet in his head everybody will be happy because mr.elite obama has killed another bad man just like he did usama and gaddafi.

I agree Gen X with your statement about the number of YouTube views for this video. They HAD to have fabiricated that number, and are probably still fabricating numbers for it. I haven't even viewed the video myself, but I find it hard to believe that that many people would've been interested in viewing it. Just out of curiosity, I might go ahead and watch it. But then again, I don't even want my intelligence to be insulted.

well quickly somehow, someway has to be made to finally make it "OK" for liberal minds to accept war, since the Prez never delivered on his promises to promote peace, but let's keep blaming Bush… as long as it isn't your father's war, it can be okay i guess.

incidentally, the nazi's figured out the sexiest, sharpest, coolest way to package war, and a demoralized country ate up the socialist machinery like mother's milk. they voted Hitler in, as we all know, right?

I know VC could probably write ten different articles a day, time willing, but I am very glad he picked Kony 2012. When I first heard about this it was me and a group of my friends watching tv, and one of them was like have yall heard about what's going on in Uganda with Kony. He briefly described a little of what he had saw, and his next words were I really think there could be something we could be doing about it (meaning the government).

This is not about enslaved children its about oil. But the sheeple will demand war to "liberate" the citizens of Uganda. It pains me to think there will be more usless bloodshed all in the name of "freedom" and "liberation." The wars are always for more oil and to increase the pockets of the wealthy elite.

We went to war with Iraq for oil not WMD, the people there are not free or liberated. I cannot imagine what it must be like for them to live in the conditions that they now live in.

I think it's an interesting article VC. However, the problem with the Kony video is that Kony isn't in Uganda anymore. And hasn't been since 2006.

Also, Obama has already deployed an elite team of troops to track down Kony and kill him.

So what's the real reason for the video?

This Guardian article sheds more light on the organisation behind the video:

I first heard about this "Kony" dude on the evening news broadcast one day last week. All the network stations who run evening news programs (ABC, NBC, CBS) were running their individual stories at the same time. As I was sitting, watching and listening, my sixth intuition gave my soul the strangest stir. I didn't come away from the story feeling sorry for the African children who are being forced to become child soldiers, nor was I even enraged that such a man as "Kony" exists and is on the loose and committing vile atrocities against humanity. What I got was a deep sense that this dude probably doesn't even exist at all, but instead, is a complete fabrication of someone's sick imagination, in an effort to manipulate and twist peoples' emotions using mind control and propaganda devices, to get them to facilitate, unwittingly, their evil, ulterior motives. I have not seen this particular video, nor do I plan to watch it. I have no interest in this "Kony 2012" movement at all simply because I am not stupid and I know when someone is attempting to toy with my emotions in order to get me to respond in their… Read more »

Whilst I agree with reverse propaganda I believe it is paranoid to think that celebrity endorsement is entirely constructed. That celebrities are knowingly backing propaganda. Surely, frequently, they or their respective agents are just trying to gain publicity by backing a cause and a viral phenomenon. Some of them probably genuinely care about the suffering of others as well as their own self promotion. They are as ignorant and have been deceived as many people have.

Brilliant article.

This comment may not be directly in response to this article, in particular, but I feel it is appropriate nonetheless. Today is actually the first day I have heard about KONY 2012, simply because I do not watch any news channels, I don't have cable and I decided to leave the Facebook world in October, 2011. I was starting to get an icky feeling about it all. Every time my friends and I went anywhere, a member of the group would want to "check us in." I was uncomfortable with that and asked to be left out. If I wanted anyone knowing where I was, I would tell them. I remember hearing about Timeline on Facebook and decided to get off of there completely before that was required. Now, I spend more time with humans and my phone doesn't have to be charged during the day. I hear from people who I haven't seen in a while and they will say, "Where have you been? You haven't been around in months." My response is always, "I've been in the same spot, you've just got to get off the computer to see me." I do think that some people just want… Read more »

I completely agree on EVERYTHING you've said. It seems like the youth now want to help others – just as long as it doesn't involve real work. It's so easy to just click 'like' on Facebook or give a thumbs up to a video on YouTube, maybe even copy and paste the link around so others are aware. But what good is awareness if no one decides to do anything?

And as far as Disney goes…I can't stand the way the children disrespect each other, especially adults, on the show. Raising kids in this world, in my personal opinion, is almost irresponsible. My heart gets heavy whenever I even think about the next few years. How bright is the future really for these kids?

As part of my grad. coursework in education we discussed more than once how a child's brain is being rewired by a variety of technology including TV, gaming, interaction, and so on. [In fact, studying the brain is the latest bandwagon in education, including the left-right brain hogwash, which has actually been around for years and is again becoming a focus; as usual, speculation is being presented as fact, and several who train teachers in this are steeped in New Age bologna..and teachers soak it up like a sponge–that is why sites such as VC are really important to inform people about what is really going on. Btw, in education dialectic process is king when it comes to training/coaching teachers and then passing it on to students. Coaches are referred to as Change Agents using manipulation and mind control to gain teachers' trust and nudge them into experiential teaching, which is using the senses in order to learn by discovery and investigation so that students realize their own truth about a concept while the degree of directedness from the teacher, I mean facilitator, is determined by the facilitator (Actually, Facilitator may be an older term.) and teaching facts are out…… Read more »

@Renjamin. You are not alone. Stopped watching the news after the gadaffi public execution and don't do facebook/ haven done Twitter for a while so this was news to me, although I had heard some passing thing about Oprah and Kim Kardashian saying something about Kony. So I thought it was some celebrity nonsense.

To tell you the truth. When I first saw the inverted triangle and saw the name Kony, I thought it was Koby's triangle 'success' rubbish! I was confused! LMAO!

I suspected this was a social experiment perpetrated the the powers that be to see how ready the masses are to rally around an issue (pause the Kony2012 video at 1:41 and you'll unmistakably see the all-seeing-eye pyramid)…to see how far they would go to ultimately demanding military action in a African country. People like Kony, exploiting children, have been around for many years in Africa. Rwanda (1994), Sierra Leone (1991-2002), and Darfur (2003-Current) child soldiers and genocides anyone? The only thing that makes it different now is that social media/networking has been frighteningly successful in pervading the lives of the majority of people on this globalized/connected world. Now the elite know how successful they can be twisting the emotions of the masses. This was just a test, if only we knew what is coming down the pipeline. . .

It's scary was the West has been allowed to do across the Middle East/ African continent in very recent years all in the name of 'peace' and delivering others from violent regimes.

I already knew that a topic about KONY 2012 will gaze in one of these pages.

Like your article mentioned, the first exact thing I've notice is that the video says "this is an experiment". So this video is experimenting on us if we would bite into their 'agenda'. I really hate to play the part of the guinea pig ever. The agenda is is very much straight to the point, I bluntly called KONY 2012 "Brute Force Propaganda".

And also using a child on a video to show or 'educate' who the big bad was? That was horrible. If you can put in a picture of any person in place of Joseph Kony's, what response can you get? That person can now be a bad guy? Cheap tricks.

The mind setting shown in this video was so blunt, it can be also labeled us "How to Manipulate the Kids of this Generation for Dummies".

Not to mention I'm hearing about rumors of oil deposits in Uganda.

I understand that the way in which they are going about the Kony issue is wrong but is the point not to rid the world of Kony? Once the issue is sorted and once all his victims are safe and he is killed or imprisoned then one can focus on the conspiracy theories. I am not disagreeing woth the article I'm simply saying that one should prioritize. Whatever the means that the people used to make public what Kony did is not the issue, the issue is first solving the actual problem and then speculating the extras.

Hello Dee, Let us assume our military enters into Uganda and we are able to capture Kony. Then what??? He has an 'army'. Do you think the soldiers of that army are going to peacifully disband and go home to their farms or businesses??? No, there are suboridants to Kony who will try and seize some power of their own. In the end, we will be worse off than we were when we started. In the overwhelming cry for action – where are the voices of wisdom??? When a nation militarily intervenes in another nation's affairs, it needs to be carefully deliberated. This takes wisdom and understanding to make a proper judgement. Wisdom is the most important trait a person can have. But when a mob is rushing to judgement, wisdom is never close by. This sounds like a disaster in the making for both the U.S. and Uganda. How can so many people belittle this effort on FALSE charges of financial misdeeds and a ridiculous statements like “I’d find something better to do with the money”. Yeah, right – spend it on yourself. How is it bad to (as promised) use the funds they’ve raised to make a wildly… Read more »

I havent seen the video yet, but i heard about it in a very important radio station in my country (Colombia)… But when i heard that it was about making that Kony's figure famous, in order to demand that the U.S ARMY (!!) get "him", and that celebrities as Angelina Jolie and Lady Gaga were supporting that… i knew that there was something suspicious here… Now, the video starts with "This is an experiment…", totally true, and the masses are the "guinea pigs"here. If this thing works (and its working), this will be the new way to control masses and do everything they want… by making people feel heroes, making them feel important…

I'll see the video when i have the time… in the mean time, thanks VC, thanks to you many people keeps their eyes open.

Kony is a offspring of the other revelotions being hijacked all over the middle east. Do you truely believe that the Libyan reveloution was about Qaddafi alone. Why was he murdered so fast and it is in not difficult to search for photos of him with all the european leaders sucking up to him and Italian prime minister (banga banga king) kissing his hand. Keeping him alive was too risky for he has a lot to say about his old Nato pals. No one really talks much about libya but those who follow sees that it is a Lawless somalia in the making. Pretty conveniant to creat such a place to keep its neighbours Tunisa and Egypt in check incase they divert from the old friendship with israel that they worked hard to establish. The oil was a factor but I see they have setup a rebel training camps to keep egypt and tunisa busy at their borders, and you will find articles about algeria, egypt, and tunisia complaining that weapons and personnel are sneaking in to help establish a taliban style rebellion. Which takes us to Syria a pure media, youtube, and facebook revelotion. Just search youtube and you… Read more »

Why do I talk about it you might ask yourself….There is a video which was, ironically released by the new Libyan government or someone form the rebels who did put their hands on important files- in the video you can hear a conversation between Omar Suleiman (ex Egyptian head of Intelligence) and Gaddafi- the first one warns the other one that USA is trying to make a revolution in the Middle East using Muslim Brotherhood and is planing to give them power.

And just one more thing – before you will start crying and repeating this media propaganda that they want you to repeat about Palestine and Israel conflict learn history- and start it form the end of IWW when Jewish and Palestinians agreed to divide the land between themselves. Then learn about the raise of nationalism and fascism and about al-Husayni mufti of Jerusalem who was working for Hitler and how he changed the way Palestinians approached Jewish. Then learn about all the peace conferences, especially the one when prince of KSA said to Arafat that if he doesn't accept the peace now it will not be a tragedy but a crime. There were many mistakes made by both sides, but the hate that al-Husayni rooted in Palestinians is just too great for them to see anything else and it is reinforced every day with propaganda, with teaching kids in kindergarten that it is good to die for Allah, to blow up themselves, to fight against Jewish because they are sons of pigs and monkeys (repeating after Quran). al-Husayni started it all, if not him and his hate there would be no conflict now.

Your last post clearly shows that you are some sort of Memri correspondent here. Really the Palestinians agreed to the split, where are your sources. Throughout history the palestians were weary about the immigrant jews, clashes took place if a table was set beside the wailing wall. You make it seem that the idea of sharing the land came from the talks between jews and palestinians, but not through zionist and western talks, just search for the Belofour letter on Palestine, it was addressed to a rothchild the true backer of hertzel and zionism. So according to you Israelis were filling boats with flowers (not guns) to the Palestinians but it was not till Al-Hysaini things changed. How dumb you think we are, really. Your reasoning is so weak and truely undermines the Palestinian struggle. So the idea of the state of Zion was to be established on good relations with the Palestinians. Your true colors are shown when you equate the so called mistakes on both sides. Go play somewhere else and people who come here are fully aware of the propaganda out there and this simplification of a apartheid style struggle while everyone one knows that Zion (a.k.a… Read more »

Now HAZ I know where u are coming form… There would be NWO propaganda if everyone (meaning the big media) would be focusing on how poor the Israelis are, but they are focusing on Palestinians instead so what NWO propaganda and for whom is it?

And where in all this troubles of Palestinians is the united Arab world- they never helped them…So why their own people, the brothers in faith have turned back on them? Is it also NWO propaganda? And Palestinians are in a such a bad situation…everything is so bad for them….so bad that they have almost destroyed Lebanon (but accordingly to you nothing happened in there, it's all NWO propaganda- just tell me, why no-one nowadays mentions what mess they did in that country?

I knew this was BS since the beginning and I thank VC because I woke up because of this site.

I now see the world a different way and I will not jump into a bandwagon just because a bunch of people are posting a video on FB. It's ridiculous how people are so easily convinced to do thing without even questioning their means!

I JUST talked about this with my mom and my sister last night. Not only is this movement going to establish US forces in Uganda, but it will also show full force the power that social media has to bring people together and organize at an alarming rate, thus resulting in them taking it from us. Unless it is for the benefit of themselves, they don't want us to be equipped with that type of power. I wouldn't be AT ALL surprised if the actions that take place spawn something drastic that the government will THEN blame on this movement, to strip us of our ease of contact with one another. That of course being what THEY had in mind alllllllllllll along. Brace yourselves.

after OSAMA, now KONY… another Boogeyman "Icon" for the people to be afraid. They even want us to promote KONY and to make it famous. The last time the mainstream media made OSAMA the famous evil icon and now they want us through the social media to make KONY famous. Another same old propaganda for the ignorance to support. Using lame celebs and pro war politicians. Took them $350k for this shitty propaganda video.

i really thought something was weird with this video.

there was alot of symbolism.

p.s: i know i am being off the topic, but guys there's a music video called ''hurricane'' by the american rock band 30 seconds to mars. there is alot of heavy symbolism. can someone please elaborate it to me? i am really curious about it.

1. Beginning of the video entitled "Birth". They flash lightening. Meant to symbolize Lucifer falling like lightening from Heaven. (Luke 10:18) So the word "Birth" is meant to be connecting with this lightening we see at the beginning. 2. A circular clock looking thing that seems to spell out the word "Anathema" but without the "e". The word "anathema" means something that is ECCLESIASTICALLY cursed. (Meaning cursed by the Church. 3. We see a woman sitting at a table with eyes, ears and mouth covered. An allusion to hear no evil, speak no evil. The woman is bound. Helpless. No will of her own. She is a slave. This can be further ascertained by the fact that she appears do be a BDSM submissive. 4. Lightening hitting the American flag. The power of Satan coming upon the United States. 5. Man shown underground walking and then a shot of the Statue of Liberty. This shows that while behind/below scenes there is activity, what the masses see is "freedom". 6.Shows a tower lit with the colors blue and red. In the Illuminati color scheme (yeah, scheme is a great word for it) the red represents witches and witchcraft and the blue… Read more »

@ Casual Observer:

Awesome breakdown of this video. People need more literal itemization of images to truly see what the “artists” these days are selling them. This video was banned and rightfully so; unfortunately forbidden things become more tantalizing to the masses. The disturbing thing is that this monstrosity of a video dedicated to the trauma and abuse of MK Ultra Sex Slaves was directed by Jared Leto himself, or rather his alter ego Bartholomew Cubbins. As someone who has listened to 30 Seconds to Mars since they came out, I have always known that they are out there; fully in the mix with the agenda hardcore (the band name says it all, and if any of you think it is all just a coincidence check it out yourself). The videos and songs all have significant meaning and symbolism. It pisses me off to no end. Being a music fan just doesn’t work for me much these days. Watching these “artists” waste true talent on this crap sickens me.

Thank you Truth Teller. I also wanted to tell everyone that I broke down the UNcensored version so if you read my commentary while watching the CENSORED version you might not see some stuff or be a bit loss as to where you are in reference to the point list.

There are extremely talented people out there. They achieve a mild modicum of success, hell, they even achieve some measure of superstardom. However, when you wonder why some people seem to do well while other more talented people don't and fade into the background it is because of "networking". It's a dark network and many stars have spoken about it, though not in any great quantity. There are people so eager for fame and money, they will gladly sell not only their souls, but the souls and bodies of those they claim to love. Even family members. I'm not going to lie. I like the music in this video, however, because I am aware of what is going on, I can't consciously ignore it. You are so correct. What a waste of talent.

I am looking forward to reading how VC is sooo evil! and mean! and how dare he not care about children! Cause that's the whole thing right? If you are not "with it" you're most definitely against the apparent "goal" of this hipster campaign, RIGHT? OK.

Very true statement. The world needs more free-thinking individuals. People don't even realise how few people control what info we are allowed to know. When I see a Facebook post discussing this, I am quick to point out the blatant war propaganda (you're sending in a military to keep peace with guns? Ironic.) and that it's ridiculous to pinpoint one warlord in a sea of warlords.

This opinion from the KONY 2012 documentary that the Government of Uganda lacks the resources and the ability to eliminate Joseph KONY and his militia the Lords Resistance Army (LRA), is quite frankly a flat out lie if you take a look at the facts. Current the Government of Uganda is fighting terrorism, and I'm not talking about the terror the LRA and KONY maybe instilling on Ugandans. NO. Since 2007 the Government of Uganda has been fighting in the US led – so called – War On Terrorism in Southern Somalia. So instead of dealing with national security problems (KONY & LRA) the Foreign Minster of Uganda in 2006 signed an agreement with, at the time, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in which THOUSANDS of Ugandan troops have been deployed to invade Somalia to fight "Islamic Militants". In fact Uganda has the largest force in the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) with 10,000 troops and growing. The president of Uganda has even expressed his willingness to double this number to 20,000 troops! http://www.voanews.com/english/news/africa/Uganda… A logical person would wonder …Why would a government send troops outside its country when there's an active war going on in its borders??… Read more »

"War on Terrorism" No no no no no no! This term was the invention of George W. Bush's marketing team. This term has no basis in fact nor in law. Why do you use this term? Because you are programmed to, by the media and the government. This term is exactly what VC warns us against. Stop using it. Occupy Language! We must use our own words, our own language. Own Language! The insanity that we are ALL trapped in is the DAFT war, the Defense against Future Terrorism war. It was started by Public Law 107-40. Are you familiar with this law? It is the ultimate stealth war law. This insane and DAFT war is not meant to be won, but to continue without end. After 10 years, I say that it is continuing as planned – in fact, it is expanding. It is now being used to control Africa, just as it is being used to control the Middle East.

@locust …I hear you and i share your concern, but understand that I only used the phrase "War on Terror" to point out the hypocrisy which most people might not be aware of. The fact Uganda ended its war in 2006 with Joseph KONY to prepare for the US led "War on Terror" in Somalia pretty much sums up this KONY2012 story. The truth is, this is a *War on Islam* not a war for resources. Of course they love to control the Wealth of nations but its more than just that, its a spiritual war. THe Zionists in control of America want to eradicate their biggest resistance which are Muslims who by faith oppose their World Order. On one hand you have leaders of Islamic States who support the New World ORder because they will benefit all the luxuries of obeying their masters, and on the other hand you have the grassroots resistance to these despot puppet governments, who the mass media portrays as the bad guys "the Al Qaeda Militants".

Thanks, V.C., for another well-researched article.

One of the most eye-opening books I've read is Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds, by Charles McKay. To summarize its 768 pages: People often forget to think for themselves. Chaos ensues. Examples cited include Tulipmania, the Salem Witch Trials, and The Crusades. This whole scenario seems to be history repeating itself.

The Apostle Paul advises us to "Walk circumspectly", in other words to observe-carefully and thoughtfully-what's going on around us.

Please do an article on all this bullying agenda that is being pushed right now. There is something definitely up with that and all the celebrities and politicians on that band wagon too!

A. Leighton
A. Leighton

If you've noticed, whenever there is a report of bullying or a teen getting beaten or committing suicide in the news, invariably the victim is a male homosexual. Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for US teens, and since only 2-3% of the population are homosexual, the vast majority that take their own lives are heterosexual. Where are the stories then of the thousands of straight teens who are injured or die due to other factors than their sexuality? Why is it then that the only time we hear about a teen committing suicide is when they're homosexual? Perhaps our leaders and their presstitutes have an agenda. Either that or the lives of homosexuals must hold far greater importance than those of the majority. Not that I condone any form of bullying, but should the fat kid, or the nerdy kid, or the goofy looking kid, or the dimwitted kid, take a backseat to the homosexual when it comes to enduring physical or mental harm from a thug? I have a news report on my desk about a teenaged swarming. Six teens attacked and severely beat another teenager for no apparent reason other than they hated him. Judge… Read more »

Total phony!

I was counting the minutes to see VC once again exposing the hidden agenda behind this propaganda.

Remember, if celebrities are promoting it, it's a propaganda. They are the ones who were taken to the top of the pyramid of success (As Kobe puts it) so eventually they can manipulate the masses. At the end of the day, no matter who's the celebrity you're following, which day/night time show it is that you're watching, what talent competition is that you're following, the message/agenda is the same. It's just so that if program 'A' didn't work on Person X, program B/C/D/E potentially would work on Person X.

"How can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye" (Luke 6:42).

Propaganda indeed! I’ve wanted to comment on Kony 2012 since it hit the mainstream media but I didn’t want to bring up irrelevant subjects in response to other articles on this site. Like most of you, I too noticed the obvious signs and symbolism that typically lies within messages put forth on behalf of the Elitist Agenda: The merging of symbols representing the Republican and Democratic parties; the contrived endorsements of 20 Celebrities and 12 politicians who wear their association/support of the Illuminati agenda like a badge of honor; the upside down pyramids and peace signs; capitalizing on Mayan Doomsday prophecies by ending the campaign on December 21, 2012; the poster’s visual association of Kony to monsters like Bin laden and Hitler (who ironically? were involved in coups within the German and American Governments) etc. This time it truly caught me off guard, primarily because this issue is not new and secondly because I typically question the purpose and intent of overnight news stories and sensationalized information. Now I see that I am not alone on this. This whole Kony movement is disturbing to say the least. Inciting a revolution among the youth while at the same time pushing an… Read more »

That is not necessarily true, but I will give you a big fat Kudo for the insight. The problem is that when a person in the public eye is honest, or has morals, or doesn't fall in line with "establishment" paradigms, they are ostracized, discredited, or worse…… Case in point: Ron Paul won the primary in the Virgin Islands, but the media changed the way that they judged the winner, as to prevent him from gaining any traction with the general public, or media exposure. (Even though he has more grass roots support than the vanilla establishment drones) Reminds me of Ross Perot. Think of how it will be, under one honest King…. Sure, you won't get a new name, and you'll have to die, (that 6ft. under way, 'cause I refuse to get born.), But at least you'll live your remainder out in peacefulness. How many billions you willing to spend, to try and kill a righteous man ? I'm burning it right now…. You should not be forced to support actions that are against your values. I've only met a couple of people that were smart enough to figure that out.

Talking about how to start a war, I guess it's time to VC make an investigation article about that US soldier who committed the homicide of about 16 people in Afghanistan, including 9 children and 2 women I guess. It's very sad how blatant this is, I mean there are many soldiers in there, if it's a war trauma, most of them would suffer this kind of symptoms and would go out to kill people just as he did! Why only one suffering of war trauma??? Perhaps he was the chosen one, chosen by a group of people. It seems to be one more sacrifice for the devil last empire (USA). The more human blood they got, the more gains they get. Now people from Afghanistan is revolted with USA government and not only, they're promesing to execute a revenge inside USA against innocent american people (I'm just talking about children). Shame on this government they don't care about their own people, what do you think they feel about others around the world???

Before I proceed, I'm not trying to lecture you or call you a bad person, it's good you asked this question. 🙂 But anyway… The New World Order is pure evil and the Illuminati is doing everything in it's power to work towards the New World Order, so that makes them pure evil. I get why the New World Order doesn't seem bad, it's about peace right? Bringing everyone together in a one world government doesn't sound that bad. But just think about it. How in the hell can we achieve world peace when there are SO many different people out there? This is what would have to happen. We'd have to put all of our beliefs aside (religion, politics etc…), all of our interests and personal feelings aside and everything that makes us an individual. Why? Because all of those things are different from everyone else, they cause arguments or just disagreements, which isn't peaceful. Imagine being in a room with just five people with completely different beliefs and interests from yours, if everyone started talking about their strong beliefs it would cause an argument. There is just no way billions of people are going to agree with each… Read more »

The "utopian society" is a pipe dream! A global dictatorship will turn out nothing like they will sell it as, since man is inherited evil. If power corrupts, then absolute power corrupts absolutely. The NWO lies to you on a daily basis, but you take the bait, all the while asking for more. It is Satan's plan to rule all of the world. Just as he'd tempted Christ in the wilderness. "You see, all the cities of the world can be yours if you'll only bow down and worship me." Whether or not you believe in scripture or not, Satan does. That's how he knew he would someday sit in the throne and rule over all mankind. It is prophecy, and so it will happen whether we want it or not. That doesn't mean we shouldn't resist!

You ask…'what is so wrong about the Illuminati'… this isn't easy to answer quickly, but I will try to give you a little bit of information. If you want to get a full and complete answer, go to: http://www.WalterVeith.org and look for the video titled "Secrets behind secret societies" Very eye opening!! To give you the short answer… the Illuminati is only one of many groups that have two agendas (Freemason, Builderburg, The Grove, Skull and Bones, etc) The first agenda is for the masses, the regular people, they present themselves as groups that do good work for the people, it's about deception, getting us to ignore the "rumors" about what they are really up to. The second, and true agenda is for those "in the know", the elite, the ones who have come up in the ranks and have earned the trust of the true rulers… they are given the truth, but sometimes only part of the truth, depends. All of these groups have a power over them that gives them their plan of action for that period of time, this power has an even greater power that they answer to, that is the power who is spoken of… Read more »

Hi Jw. It's agenda is to gain dominance over the world by weakening the infrastructures of nations so that they are unable to handle crisis independently therefore seeking assistance, from a higher power.

It's ultimately got a spiritual and religious agenda, Jewish, Biblical and Islamic text mentions this new world order and describes it as an atrocity which will sweep the earth however will ultimately be unsuccessful. They will be unsuccessful because the power they are supporting will turn against them, it's like committing kamikaze.

People who are open minded, critical thinkers and read between the lines or behind the lines will be successful in identifying this order but will not follow it, they may be seen as rebels, terrorists and bad but they will actually be fighting a true cause.

comparative religion interests me, and I would say read the Jewish account and Islamic account of Anti-christ a.k.a Dajjal, and new world order. Also view 'The Arrivals' but remember to be open minded and not to take everything as facts.

They secretly utilize in human sacrifice and advanced torture-brainwashing techniques as a means to further their power and influence. Oh, and they're trying to wipe out 85-95% of the world's population, hopefully the non-whites first but they don't really care so long as the population is small enough to be controlled all at one time with present technology and such.
