The "plot" about Angelina Jolie flying off to Uganda and luring Kony to a trap sounds like something straight from South Park. Good god, how can anyone come up with that and be serious about it?

Thank god for internet historian, because I was 11 when this happened, and completely missed it. Thanks for the recap.

This poor man had a stress induced psychotic episode and was humiliated on tv while someone else made $30,000 off his hardship

Considering how much time and effort he spent on this I want to say that he genuinely wanted to help, but had no real plan past raising awareness. Plus it being the first big social media campaign o think that nobody actually knew what to expect and everyone came down on the guy. Like obviously the guy wasn’t going to buy a rifle and go shoot Kony, but I think things got really built up and when nothing actually happened nobody knew who to blame so they went after the one guy they could.

Jason seems like one of those people who is genuinely motivated to solve a problem, but also doesn’t really have any idea how to necessarily deal with it.

The fact that he broke while watching the Lorax is hilarious to me.

“People were up to pretty much anything to stop Kony, as long as it didn’t involve any practical action”
Yup, that sounds like the internet I know

That prosecutor’s plan may seem absolutely insane (and it most certainly is), but the Mexicans/us feds caught El Chapo by following him when he cane out of hiding to be interviewed by Sean Penn and Kate del Castillo. Think about it, the most powerful drug lord in the world, who escaped maximum security prison twice, was caught because he wanted to do an interview with a famous American actor and a Mexican actress he wanted to bang (the feds found erection pills when he was caught). So while the plan to catch Kony seems improbable, you have to remember that law enforcement has used some really creative and bizarre tactics that occasionally work. Lol

You know something is corrupt when the US media comes out bashing an idea that was anti war and Anti child slavery. US Media is totally in bed with the war machine

I have the feeling this Kony guy would have been killed in a few days if 4chan was to be involved.

Other charities got mad during this. Oh no, all that money that you're taking from us, I mean, our cause. This is why I just don't donate to charities. Most of them are straight scams and when they're not they still pay far too much to their own people for vacations and shit.

"naturally, questions were raised about his sexual orientation." Is just a nice way to say that 4chan called him gay.

I was like in 4th grade when this happened and got really scared that Joseph Kony was gonna make me murder my parents only thing is I lived in California not Africa but my 4th-grade mind didn't exactly understand that and freaked out for a week.

I remember they came to my school in around 2008 or 2009, a little bit before all this blew up. I remember them performing that dance routine live. It’s why I’m a borderline schizo now.

The West truly has a talent for finding bad things going on in the world and doing absolutely nothing effective to stop it.

This is a good example of mob mentality. Bad guy is bad so everyone hates bad guy.
