The “Stop Kony” movement on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube has gotten a lot of traction lately. The Ugandan guerrilla leader, Joseph Kony, has become a household word since a viral video was released telling of his abuses and viciousness. John Vinson reported on it here on Wednesday.

However, another video is going viral that was made in response to the first. A girl from Uganda living in the U.S. says that the entire movement and uproar is misled. She does not defend Kony. Rather, she says that the people of Uganda know that Kony is already dead and has been for five years. She goes on to criticize the “Invisible Child” organization that raises funds from the video, saying that they keep a lot of the money.

The response seems odd, though not entirely unbelievable. The biggest curiosity about the whole thing is that the United States government seems to think Kony is a living threat. In May 2010, U.S. President Barack Obama signed the Lord’s Resistance Army Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act into law, funding efforts to stop the leader.

    In the video response, the girl states that her mother THINKS Kony is dead and that she doesn’t really know whether or not it’s true or false.

      She didn’t say that.

      • Thatguy

        she said it was a RUMOR which is 9 times out of 10 a lie.

        ‘In late 2008, the United States backed Ugandan-led air strikes and a ground attack on LRA camps in Congo.
        These too failed as the LRA leadership slipped into the bush, seemingly after being tipped off, and unleashed a retaliatory killing spree that left thousands dead”

        So if the US government is backing up air strikes to take down LRA and LRA leaders he is alive and regardless if he is alive or not the LRA still exists and are still killing people.

        she said educate yourself so i did and from all the news articles I have read they all pointing to LRA influence still in the world somewhere in the congo gathering larger forces

        • Kony is a phony

          Then why bother going to uganda?

          • I watched the WHOLE video

            BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT GOING AFTER HIM IN UGANDA.

            Watch the video, they even state specifically and show on a map that he’s MOVED.

            Invisible Children has spent money to rebuild schools in northern uganda. LOOK UP the schools4schools program. Dollars, blue prints, partnerships all there for you to see.

          • James

            The US government is going there to train and advise Ugandan military…but LRA is not in Uganda…so why have advisers there?? Since they can’t even travel to other territories.

          • Fruitbread

            You can’t form your opinion on one video, especially Invisible Children’s Kony 2012 video, because it’s rife with emotional blackmail, bent truths, propaganda and pointless, sickening slickness. YOU are being exploited, do not trust IC, Ugandan forces, American forces, Kony or any one source in any issue, research & realise the error of your ignorance, sorry if I’ve offended.

          • lamisa

            No one is sure if Kony is dead or not. Just because he didn’t do anything for years doesn’t mean he’s not planning something big. No one has proof that Kony is dead. Yeah he’s not in Uganda, that doesn’t mean he didn’t go anywhere else in Africa. The money that is being given in the charity, its not the first time. All charities only like 31% goes to the actual cause. Think about it.

        • Civilian

          You do realize that classified information from the united states military HAS to be declassified every few decades right? In The early 60′s it was declassified the USA attacked it’s own soil to excite the United States Population, why is it hard to believe they would do something for pointless paper that they can use to get anything they want from US people?

          • travis

            Actually, the Ugandan military CAN travel to other territories, and is the only regional military really capable of completing this mission. However, US forces are being deployed throughout the region.

      9 yr Old Captures, Nearly kills Kony

      Boyle Heights, CA May 13, 2012–Like Saddam Hussein & that Osama Bin Laden guy, Kony has gone down. The Ranger Core apprehended and brought Kony to justice- at least temporarily. The plan was to bring him to the International Criminal Court, the ICC for trial on war crimes, we don’t believe in killing anyone. But he escaped and turned a weapon on those that apprehended him. “Sadly, his evil counter parts Okot Odhiambo, Dominic Ongwen, Vincent Otti, also escaped just prior to Kony’s capture”, stated Aeylias Lopez of SSC.

      Gaia, the 2nd in command of The Ranger Core, was in an all out fire fight and she managed to capture Joseph Kony who is #1 on the ICC most wanted list; 10,000 children have been abducted by the LRA to form the army of “prophet” Kony, whose aim is to take over Uganda and run it according to his vision of Christianity. The boys are turned into soldiers and the girls into sex slaves. Up to 1.5 million people in northern Uganda have been displaced because of the fighting and the fear that their children will be abducted.

      Abd Al Rahman, Ahmad Harun, Omar al-Bashir, Bar Idriss Abu Garda, Ali Kushayb who are listed as #2 on the most wanted list are also being targeted by the Ranger Core. “We are determined to apprehend them all,” said Fog the leader of the Ranger Core. “By the time we are done,” added Speed a well known Ranger team mate, “–they are going to have to make a brand new list.” In May 2007, the ICC issued an arrest warrant for Harun, charging him with mass murder, rape, and other crimes. The Sudanese government has refused to hand him over to the Court. Sudan arrested Kushayb in October 2008. More than 200,000 people have been killed and 2.5 million have become refugees since the conflict in Darfur. Something long time advocate and human rights warrior George Clooney has pursued.

      “We all have our eye on Bosco Ntaganda, Mathieu Ngudjolo Chui, Germain Katanga, Thomas Lubanga Dyilo-who are also listed as # 3 on the most wanted list,“ Added Fog.

      In the Democratic Republic of Congo more than 2.5 million people are estimated to have died in the war, which ranged from 1999 to 2003. Known as the “Terminator,” Ntaganda also allegedly led the child soldiers in war. Mathieu Ngudjolo Chui was arrested in 2008 and charged with six counts of war crimes and three counts of crimes against humanity. His misdeeds include willful killing, inhumane treatment, using child soldiers, sexual slavery, and pillaging.

      “We are going to bring them all to justice,” announced Laser a long time Ranger Core teammate. -”-Kony and the rest of you can run–but you CAN’T hide, its simply a matter of time.” He said firmly.

      We are putting this all into the 3 Issue mini series titled ‘THE RANGER CORE’ to highlight the need to bring these criminals to justice in REAL life ,not just my book,” says 9 Yr old Aeylias Ceo of Super Smash Comixsz. We are determined to shed light on these TRULY EVIL villains, which is the REAL point of this release. And the TRUE motivation for creating the book. The above is a condensed version of the events in the mini-series.

      The RANGER CORE COMIC premieres JULY 16, 2012.

    she also said there has not been any issues there and her family confirmed that there is no threat there. it seems to be a he said she said situation but maybe the us should stop interfering in other territories we do not reside in. not our business. its just an opinion of mine so dont get all sassy with my thought and i welcome any ones opinion to mine politely. id believe her over media propaganda.

    • I watched the WHOLE video

      Current efforts are not Uganda based, but hopes to contain, limit, or capture Kony.

      Please see what Invisible Children HAS done in the past… they’ve built a communications system across the ugandan-congolese border to provide early notification of LRA activity, they are going to expand the network deeper into where the LRA activity is currently active (by current I mean 2008 – 2012).

      • Fruitbread

        The Invisible Children Inc. are a fake, unprofessional and fear-mongering charity, their latest video effectively brainwashes anyone with a conscience and shouldn’t be trusted as a reputable source. Arguably, the Kony campaign is just an excuse to tap into Uganda’s oil reserves while using the fairly inactive warlord as justification to remain active in the area. They will not find him quickly, if ever, it’s quite likely that he is already dead, they’ll just use him as an excuse to keep their foot in the door. It’s going to be “we didn’t find any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq” all over again. Please educate yourself beyond videos & articles with their own corrupt agendas & form a fair opinion on this important topical debate.

        • alex

          they are not fake they do good and if you are so well “researched” as you say you are you would know. they are helping rebuild countless schools and towns. and maybe only 31% is going to uganda but its doing a LOT of good.

          • BELEIVERSareJUSThipnotizedBYtheKID

            Okay so your saying that ur research is better but i can tell you to get to anything true to day on the internet you have to dig for it. all of the first page when i was looking for this was KONY2012 watch the video help out. All you have to do is dig but some people on here dont do their research and they are just infuencing people on opinion and, Fruitbread, Thank you for finally being someone on here to do research i am trying to prove t my friends that Kony2012 is total bulls*** and you are a very big help.

          • heyyy

            did you guys ever learn what makes a website or article a reliable source in school? maybe you do have to dig for real info, but articles on websites like this and other forums are just people’s opinions, not facts. think please.

  • @Errika on twitter

    I think its all a big sham and if it ain’t kony you low life!!!

  • the truth

    This is one smart girl have a look at the big picture , the administritation that controls these groups in syria ,trying to fight , iran , iraq has many reasons behind it is to always create war and war is profitable and its part of the eugenics programme – just have a look at eugenics – culling of the world population ,
    If you keep starting conflicts and wars you will kill millions of people . Look at israel they are genociding the palestinians – loook at the gaza strip its not the majority of the jews fault its the zionist jews that control the us department – the kony video was made as propaganda so people take their eyes of other issues eg ron paul having his votes stolen – people have been dying and being killed in africa for years why are they so concerned about it now -like this young girl says do your own research and you will see

    • TJS

      There is no such thing as a Palestinian people. Historically, the Palestinian’s are Jewish, not Arab and until Arafat came into the picture to fight for the Arab squatters in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, there was nothing to fight for. The Jewish people are historically tied to the land, not the Arab squatters who come from the surrounding areas and are mostly Jordanians. Maybe you should do a little research before posting about something you know nothing about.

      • Chaz

        Are you for real? Most of the Jews inhabiting Israel AREN’T from there but have migrated there in the 40s. And how exactly are the Jews tied to the land? Cos the bible says so?

        Get a clue.

    • alex

      you are really and truly dumb and uneducated. you should not post about things that you know nothing about because smart people know that kony is not taking attention off of anything, so stop posting about things you dont know about :P

  • Rebecca

    Isn’t this what happened with Osama Bin Laden??? They said he was dead for the longest time but yet he was still alive .. This probably is the same thing that’s happening now

    • Alley

      There would be no benefit of lying about him being dead. I’m surprised no one has mentioned the amount if oil there is in Uganda.

      • I watched the WHOLE video

        Current mission is across Congolese-Ugandan border in the North.

        Oil is in mid-western Uganda.

        Pursuit of of LRA activity is focused on Northern Congolese – South-Sudanese border.

        SUMMARY…
        US support is in the north and across the border… so… I don’t follow what you’re trying to say?

    • Brainy Smurf

      OR…maybe it IS just like Osama Bin Laden and he was dead for a long time while they continued to lie so there was a BoogyMan to fear and then when the time is just right they will get him and tell us how they stormed his compound and then got rid of the body-without any pics because we Americans are just too sensitive to handle them. :) I call BS.

      • hsjasldadajkdl

        I completely agree, I think the government just wants to have a reason to send troops to a different country. The Kony 2012 video was to get people’s support to send troops over there because there are big oil reserves in Uganda, or atleast that’s my opinion.

  • Seba

    “people have been dying and being killed in africa for years why are they so concerned about it now”
    Thats the fuckin problem. Nobody cares, it had to become “cool” and posted on the internet for people to care.
    Its about god damn time they do something about it.

    They go to Irak, and talk about Iran ect, “Ohh, we must save the Irakis from Saddam” And no1 cares about afrika who got the worst shit on earth atm.

    Secondly, did any1 know about Kony before this video? 99% of the world didnt. And now they do. So… Whats your problem here?
    This “KONY 2012″ isnt really about Kony, its about how people live. That you dont care about.
    When 1 person gets shot here in Sweden, it becomes the biggest event in contry. But when shit like Kony did happens in Africa, we dont care. Thats fucked up.
    I just hope that in a near future the next generations stop thinking just about them selves and money. Life is more than that.

  • Jeelan

    LRA was already out of Uganda in 2010

  • Wow

    My question to this girl that made that^ video did you not notice about 16 mins into the Kony 2012 video that it said the LRA and Kony had moved out of Uganda?

    • James

      and 1:52 into hers she says the same thing…so what’s your point?

      • alice

        I think the point is that she says that the video gives the impression that Kony is still in Uganda, when they in fact do specify that he is not.

  • DZ

    Do not support Anything that Advocates more Military action in a Country that has massive resorces, there is always an ulterier motive. Oil has just been discovered and now you are all falling for a pitch, about an Evil prick of a guy, Who hasn’t been in Uganda in 6 years, it makes as much sense to say, lets go into Uganda and get Saddam Hussian. Research some facts! Oil has been discovered and the US Corporate interests / Banks /Military Industries / Oil Companies want to profit from it. Its the Ugandas Peoples fight and its a Fight in which they DO NOT want foreign troops of any kind swamping there country. That will only serve to increase the numbers of these People like Kony building up a resistance army and starting these practices all over again! watch this video for an explaination ofhow things happen the way they do. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQs5hoHW_Qc

    • N

      Exactly!!!! So why send troops to Uganda? ( oil..oil..oil..)

  • Tha Man

    you cant use this girl as a reliable source, so this article is more of an assumption then proof, find me proof

  • drifter90

    More blood for oil!!!
    were done in iraq lets go to ugandan

  • N

    Is Kony even alive? And if so, is he even in Uganda?Are you sure this has NOTHING to do with the oil reserves recently found in Uganda?

  • Pierre

    If he is realy dead, then there are a lot of young people, his army, whot can confirm his death.

  • Leveda

    Then who is Jacob? Did he lie? I believe he is not in Uganda. I am not sure if he is dead or not but I believe there is a real problem in Africa and no child should ever have to be raped & no child should ever have to become a soldier & if nothing else, Mr. Russell’s video has brought an awareness to this. It all came to our attention because my daughter has a pen pal in Uganda and hasn’t heard from her in 2 years. She became worried this week. That’s how we even came across the Kony information. We have not contributed to Invisible Children. We are still doing our homework obviously, we watched you!

    • Fake

      It says in the Kony 2012 that Jacob escaped 10 years ago. All the children in the film escaped more than 5 years ago, when Kony disappeared (perhaps died). Jacob and the others won’t know anything recent about Kony and if he’s alive, if they escaped him so long ago…

  • Megan

    JUST BECAUSE SHE IS BLACK DOESN’T MEAN YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE HER! HAHA!

  • Mike

    Is it a coincidence that Uganda struck it rich with oil recently??? Is this Obamas plan to cut gas prices??? Lol.

  • Connor

    What about darfive?

  • Unknown

    1) Uganda discovers oil reserve with projected 2 billion a year revenue (projected by ‘The Economist’) on it’s borders.

    2) US social engineers a media frenzy to move troops into Uganda to “catch” a dictator that left Uganda in 2006 and has no current effect on the country. Intelligence says he is in Sudan.

    3) You already know, don’t you…

    Europeans mocked Americans for falling for the Iraq/9-11 connection that we later found never existed. Now the world is fooled

  • Nadi

    Why don’t the people just go to Uganda and find out for themselves if he’s really alive still. If they don’t know where he is, LOOK FOR HIM.

    Try educating yourself!

    Don’t presume to know why people are taking action, and don’t make a video based on your parents’ off-hand comment, which is as likely to be true as the thing you are trying to refute. Clearly, you’ve mismatched information regarding the LRA’s whereabouts (and also decided to assume that a world superpower is less intelligent than you at deciding where to dedicate resources) and adopted your parents’ random view- because yeah, that spells education to the letter doesn’t it?

    Try visiting Uganda again, come back, then try telling us again that we shouldn’t try to raise the profile of Ugandan suffering- LRA or no LRA- this is about the people!

  • Liz

    well, didn’t the video say that kony was at large at the minute?
    She believes otherwise having been there in Uganda recently.

  • http://theghostletters.blogspot.com freedomwv

    SO…the big question becomes where is Kony these days?

  • Brandon Rael

    Actually the Kony thing that is going on in uganda is very real, my freinds dad just came back from africa from training the troops on capturing kony.Its starting to piss me noff on how people say that invisble children is BS and it to gain money for them selves its not.ITS TO HELP THE KIDS OUT THERE IN UGANDA and ive seen real pics taken from my friends dad of the people that lives down their.Ita very horrifying. So if you agree or disagree tell me and reply it would be great.

  • Laura

    I agree with her on some points. This is NOT the way to handle this situation. Yes, Kony 2012 isn’t what everyone thought it was when they first saw that video. But it actually is starting a revolution; just a smaller one.

    Despite all that bad reputation; People are starting to see that they can effect the world. Even though many see it as a ‘be cool’ situation, it’s starting to bring peace as an idea again. The world needs to be harmonal again, no doubt. If facebook and twitter is how we will get the future generations to know about the world and care less about themselves, we might as well us them.

    • Darren H

      I go to northern Uganda EVERY year in March; and I leave for Gulu this Sunday. I go to assist with the training of community leaders in the recovering towns & villages. Joseph Kony is real and he is alive – I have personally visited his home village. He is believed to be in Congo – not Uganda – as the military pressure in Uganda has forced him out. His militia is very small now. Groups like Invisible Children & others have reduced his ability to “recruit” new child soldiers, whilst military efforts have curbed further large scale aggression.
      The tragedies are real, but the current status in northern Uganda is safe and free. The clap-trap that people write here is disconcerting. I am one of many who have boots on the ground in these towns & villages. The people are fast recovering but the infrastructure is non-existent. If the US get some oil and in the process get roads, schools & hospitals up to scratch – BRILLIANT!

  • brian clark

    We only plan to go into Uganda because we discoverd oil.. Kony has been dead for 5 years

  • numan zulfiqar zubayr

    Imagine the second Congo war but with America involved. This is too convenient a situation. A quagmire of sorts. We go in and help, War breaks out and the big 5 get their black gold bonus. We spectate, and thing spiral out of control leading to inteference by the UN, the big 5 offer their “help”. They Profit either way. It’s called interested benevolence.

  • horizons

    It’s Konys daughter.. dont listen to her lol

    • Rose

      Thats mean!!!!!!! But funny too! I mean, just cuz shes african or whatever, dont mean she is konys daughter. im not hating, but it is rude to say that. i know where your coming from, but someone who REALLY cares, could REALLY take it the wrong way!

  • Kony is alive.

    Apparetnly Osama Bin Laden was dead for 12 years. Obviously not. Apparetnly Kony has been dead for 5 years because he hasn’t been in Uganda for 5 years. That doesn’t mean he’s dead.

  • Kony’s alive.

    Just because he isn’t in Uganda doesn’t mean he isn’t alive. I’m 110% postive along with others that believe he is alive. He doesn’t need to be in Uganda. He’s hiding out just like Osama did when everyone thought he was dead for 12 years. But obviously not.

  • AJ

    would love to note that hello the video says they’ve moved. It didn’t say they’re in Uganda any more. He hasn’t been seen for six years not dead you twit… people are so stupid and pathetic these days… shut the hell up if you don’t actually research properly… and its pronounced si-re-ah not see-re-ah… Yes your right they do make money but then so does everyone else in charities.

  • hellokitty

    Your words dont match your mouth? or is it just me?

  • Samuel

    Regardless of whether he’s dead or alive, he is no longer relevant. He hasn’t been active for years. There a million actual problems in Africa to solve, and we’re focusing on this bullshit. It’s stupid. And on top of it all we still have our own problems here in America. So can we just shut up about Kony?

  • http://www.webpronews.com/ Deidre Miller

    She’s clearly reading a script. So, I wouldn’t take what she’s saying seriously.

  • Samira

    Kony is a SCAM. Invisible children are just doing it for the money ! %30 of donations go to africa. And the rest go to invisible children ! KONY IS DEAD !

  • Samira

    KONY IS DEAD. INVISIBLE CHILDREN ARE JUST MAKING MONEY !

    • WHO CARES!!

      You are right.

  • http://none greekajp82

    not to mention the guy who made the film went on a mental breakdown and publicly masturbated….
    he’s now at a hospital. sean the video on TMZ, everyones seen it tho probably by now

  • That Guy

    A third of the money made goes to the children.
    Another 40%-50% Goes to charities and helps build schools.
    The rest goes to advertising and employees helping the children.

  • WHO CARES!!

    Okay i only just heard about this today and im afriad that this might go worldwide. You know how Hitler killed and imprisoned Jews? I think that is going to happen expect instead of Jews Its Africans, little kids and if this gets too out of hand its going to destroy the world. I think that there should just be a peace treaty. If you think about it you might do this to.Thanks for reading my comment.

  • WHO CARES!!

    There is a change on the horizon. If noone does anything major to conserve resoures this is going to kill us all. I must sound like an loony, really I actully know that if this guy is not caught or stopped in some way this WILL cause a war.

  • Hayley

    If you watch the Kony 2012 video, he does say that the LRA moved out of Uganda, and he also does say that Uganda was relatively safe even when Jacob and other Ugandas came over to America to speak on their country’s behalf. As for Kony being dead, I have no clue about that. Kony committed horrible crimes back in his day, and I hope he has gotten/will get what he deserves. As for the Invisible Children group, I don’t think that is entirely bullcrap. Yes, I do think the Kony 2012 video is exaggerated in a sense that it wasnts viewers to feel very sympathetic and start donating, however, having said that, there is a very big moral to the video. It is raising awareness not only about Kony, but about many other things that go on in this world that we have no idea about. Kony may or may not still exist, but we do know for a fact that even if he doesn’t, he once did, and we are now aware of terrible things he inflicted. I do find it a little hard to believe that with all the technology we have these days, it seems almost impossible to track down a guy running rampid throughout the jungle, but who knows. I am not siding with anything here, just simply stating some opinions. I can say the Kony 2012 video has been a big eye opener for me and I have definitely seen things from a different perspective.

    how bout some proof, get a video clip with kony in it, and his army, were so hi-tech today, but no proof what he is today, get a video clip with a date and time, dont go bullshiting when there is no proof that he is alive or dead, that it is true or not, everyone knows how to lie, give me proof, give me evidence, b4 u go, “kony 2012″ and doo some bullshit propaganda, give me a video clip of him that his alive, or interview him , u look really stupid for believing so much in this kony thingy, dum ppol > , <

    if kony is dead the us government probably knows about it but they still sent troops because the LRA is still alive. That’s the real problem not just Kony, the reason why the video focused on Kony and not the LRA as a whole was to put a face to their cause

    Ok first off, I don’t believe anything, because obviously a lot of people “believe” they are right about their perception of research. This isn’t a post about war or Kony or any of that bs. All that I would like to say is, if the fact that this organization, Tri, is really building schools for people that need them, therefore creating jobs for the unemployed, and overall earning money to feed their children… After that country, as well as others, couldn’t feed any of their people for more years than anyone cares to count… Why not donate some money that you KNOW is at least doing something, or at least not be against raising awareness about it. We all pay taxes worth MUCH more than 5 dollars a month that goes into projects that we have no idea about and may never even benefit.
