How do you know that?

You think that IC are too stupid to know basic facts about their cause? Of course not. They purposely manipulated the truth so they could push their product.

limbs already said it, but it's worth repeating - these guys clearly knew that kony wasn't in uganda anymore. the video didn't say he was, it just alluded to it. they decided to make the video as slick as possible and grossly over simplified the situation in the process.

i agree with that article from cole. i think these guys needed to be taken to task, i just don't feel comfortable crucifying them... what am i doing for africa after all?

to me, those taking a perverse joy in eviscerating IC are just as objectionable as the slacktavists getting a warm and fuzzy after dropping a few bucks on a braclet and tweeting #stopkony.

I don't think I understood why you posted it in the first place tbh. Relating to the holiday 4/20 somehow? Did posters exist in your neighborhood in the first place? IM SO CONFUZZLED

I have a friend on FB that keeps posting about this. Apparently people are still activisming about Kony 2012. They are meeting tonight in Atlanta at centennial park at 9PM.

Godspeed!

The video said they were going to "cover the night" on April 20th.

I hadn't seen a single KONY anything anywhere around my house or work before that night... And still nothing.

Haha.. I saw a massive Kony 2012 poster in the window of a house this afternoon and I thought it was rather odd.. Now it kinda makes sense.

I saw several posters around that said Kony 2012 around here, but I don't get it. Is it a joke? Are they trying to accomplish something? I really didn't pay attention to this topic when it first came around.

i saw a couple hand-drawn ones on the sidewalk downtown Ft Worth this morning. Sat when i was working, I saw a couple printed ones, but most were torn down. Businesses don't want that shit on their windows

yesterday while watching Hulu Plus I saw a Kony commercial starring the little boy from the video. It was just clips from the video thrown into a commercial but it's the first one I've seen not online
