Kony 2012
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4MnpzG5Sqc

Unless you live under a :censored:ing rock, you've heard of Kony 2012 in the past few days. So I won't go into any details.

When you watch the video, you notice that Bono is listed as one of the 20 celebrities listed to contact about this. Not surprising, really.

You can contact him, or any of the other 19 celebrities and/or 12 "policymakers" here.

Invisible Children | Kony2012

I hope it's acceptable to post here, and I'm imagining that general discussion on the topic would go into Free Your Mind.

I don't live under a rock, but I certainly wish I did.

Or if you prefer, you can just throw your money into a volcano.

I see this was moved. I guess my original intentions were to discuss the Bono part of it, but whatever works is fine.

What if I throw my money at some nice, hardworking strippers at a strip club?

Has Bono tweeted or posted or otherwise personally announced anything about this campaign, or is it just that he's someone viewers are being urged to contact?

there's a bono part in this other than his name?

i'd have assumed this was a joke thread about how any minor mention of u2 deserves a mention on the forum.

I don't really know. There's not much else going on here right now, anyway. I didn't think that posting it was that big a deal. There's been many other threads with less significant information.

He's listed on the website as one of the pop culture icons (I've already forgotten how they're labeled on that site), along with such important luminaries as Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, and you can send them a message about .... this.

I went from not knowing what the hell everyone was going on about yesterday to reading way too much about it today.

And then one of the filmmakers went and called himself the son of "Oprah, Steven Spielberg and Bono" (or something to that effect) on an interview on NPR, I think it was.

This whole thing - from the campaign itself, the organization, to the OMG SAVE AFRICAN KIDS to the internet mockery its become - leaves a really sour taste in my mouth.

"But ... but .... awareness!" Yeah. Great. Make sure you know what you're actually spreading "awareness" of. Apparently you're not going to get the facts from this campaign. And I'd be very skeptical of giving them any money, because apparently it would probably just go to making another film.

There are better ways to help Africa than giving these people money.

I hope Bono's okay.

corianderstem 03-09-2012 10:51 PM

After all this stuff, I'm honestly curious if he even knows he's being lumped in on this website.

The Sad Punk 03-09-2012 11:43 PM

Here's Invisible Children's response to their critics, for what it's worth: InvisibleChildren

And here's a nice article that I read today: Don't Reduce Uganda to a Meme - News - GOOD

And now for your regularly scheduled Bono.

Like encouraging African young males not to shoot HIV into their female club hook-ups like a malicious game of gotcha?

Maybe providing a more compelling reason not to help in this istance, if one were so inclined, would be a better argument.
He's a despicable human being. I can't see a reason not to plaster his face across the world and bring him to justice, finally.
