KONY 2012, an activist viral video campaign created by charity group Invisible Children, has received criticism for simplifying complex issues involving Josephy Kony, the government of Uganda, and the Lord's Resistance Army. Now the criticism is coming from actual Ugandans based on public screenings held by Al Jazeera's Malcom Webb. Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur break it down on The Young Turks.

Kony wasn't in ugranda during 2012 and because of the media attention resources such as manpower where put in near Konya territory instead of the M23 also kony was fighting what he saw as an illegal government

It's not just about Uganda, it's been a crisis for four countries, it's international.  it's another group of people that uses children sexually, violently, similar to the Myanmar military, and like that army, it displaces many people.  Just that Myanmar's armies stay in that nation. The LRA displaces millions of people and it moves around from country to country.  I seriously think, God is Using us and Invisible Children to actually rescue people. Did you know:  one of Kony's 40 wives got out, because of the Work God Was Doing Through Invisible Children?
Shut up, they're just making money off other peoples suffering; they support armies that have been accused of the same crimes as Kony's forces. Just white people using black people to benefit themselves no matter the cost
I think that the biggest thing that made them angry is the huge separation we make between "us" and "THEM", like we are two different species. The film makes Americans believe that the Ugandan people are too weak to stop something so horrible from happening on their own... they need the Superpower America to save them!

Don't be fooled this negative reaction took place in Lira which is highly pro NRM they did all this to put Russells efforts to nothing... God bless You all...
They hate Kony but invisible children are not sensitive to their feelings or opinion. They think invisible children are promoting Kony instead of focusing on the victims of Kony's terror. Instead of a picture of Kony why not a picture of the victims of Kony. We in the west get the "wanted dead or alive" picture but they think invisible children is glamorizing Kony and the creator of the video. They feel exploited by the creators of the video

so true, its all about kneeling down uganda, to make uganda bow down so they come to theyr behind's, this is how the sodomite nation takes action. USA is full of filthy whores and sodomites!

Of course they're pissed, Kony 2012 is an obvious scam.
