Kony 2012

Ok. There is this Kony 2012 lot. The first 5 minutes of the ‘video masterpiece’ is composed of the movie maker dotting over his son and trying to explain to him why Kony is a bad man. The kid is more interested in teletubbies for crying out loud. And besides Why did he have to fly thousands of miles to go into a jungle somewhere to go fish out a kid who was allegedly abducted by a seemingly invincible militia leader? Why not make a Bush2012 video? He is responsible for two wars, countless deaths, destruction of societies and terrorism. Why not advocate for his arrest?

This is just an elaborate ploy by the Us govt to setup an Africa command and the imperialism will be complete. it reeks of pity and using his own clueless son is just dispensable. What 5 year old wants to be told there are other guys just like him half a hemisphere away that are forced to kill their parents? This is indoctrination of violence.

And then there is the fact that Kony left north Uganda 6years ago. They kinda forgot to emphasize that bit and instead decided that painting him as a mad,evil mastermind is more worthwhile. Also that Museveni used the same strategy of forcibly recruiting child soldiers to gain power is conveniently never mentioned.
