I don't think they were expecting this video to go as viral as it did though. They've released multiple films and none of them have received this sort of attention. It's already over 58 million views on YouTube. Kind of insane. And the whole video is geared toward influencing American politicians, not those around the world. Not to mention they are based here, so it's harder to have an influence overseas.

I know plenty about Invisible Children. The only thing anyone could possibly have against them is how they use their funding, which is perfectly reasonable as it is. It needs to spend money on the people who work for it and getting more support/exposure along with helping the cause. Unless I'm missing something is everybody bitching at them for self sustenance? What kind of shit is that?

It's all about Kony this month, but next it's going to back to random videos of cats being cats. Everyone who supports this Kony 2012 business does it with a good heart, but in the end they will just forget that they were so involved and how much/often they spewed out thoughts/comments/photos about it.

I agree the fact that Kony is now such a big deal is sad, and the fact that the supports of this movement are putting all their eggs in this one basket and neglecting the rest of the world where this stuff happens on a smaller scale.

I will just leave this here in hopes it can get a laugh:

I just think it's funny that everybody woke up one day and all of a sudden realized bad shit happens in the world.

I really hate American culture sometimes. Nobody gives a shit about human rights atrocities a week ago but now everyone acts like they care because it's "cool." Don't get me wrong, I think it's good that people at least understand that these sort of issues are happening now (to an extent), but I just hate that even when our society "cares" we come off as self absorbed.

Also, if people really want to donate money to the cause they shouldn't be wasting it on Invisible Children, who admittedly spend most of their money on advocacy campaigns such as this Kony video and not on direct aid.
