I believe MSM and TPTB are starting to buckle in their support for this effort. There is some coverage now of how the Ugandans are saying that the Kony 2012 efforts are not needed and that all this is overblown. I have a feeling that threads and blogs such as this one, have probably effectively ended any attempt for the TPTB to use this angle to their advantage.
I also have a feeling this may have been a dry run.

I think the point here is that this man enslaved and made into killers over thirty thousand children who will NEVER get their lives back, and many more thousands were slaughtered and mutilated. Perhaps we can all turn a jaundiced eye to it because "he's been doing it for thirty years." When in fact he shouldn't have been able to do it for one year. But because it is Africa, who gives a #? Am I right or am I right? Wink! Well one guy seems to care and he's put his life on the line. The kids Kony tried to destroy care and they came here to tell us it needed to be stopped. And guess what the President thought it was worth the effort to send trainers over there. And guess what else? Kony just moved his operations to the Sudan and elsewhere, where he continues to slaughter innocents. So you know what, HE NEEDS TO BE STOPPED. And people like him on that list of criminals, people like G.W. Bush and Dick "Heartless" Cheney also NEED TO BE STOPPED. It's not about oil. It's about human life and dignity. I am appalled at the attitudes on this thread. Trying to make those who just made the Kony doc go viral, feel like suckers...by using a "quote" from some supposed "Ugandan" who is saying "Oh it was all over years ago, no one cares...give us some money now!" It's this sort of attitude that makes the Kony's of this world become more and more bold.
We do, yes other countries do donate to our disasters as well. Here is just one example.
Point taken. But do we have other countries donating to us? Do we get money from other countries to feed our poor, to better our schools, to fix our problems in general? So why the hell do people feel the need to donate 10.5 million dollars of their money across the world when we have plenty of our own problems that they seem to not care less about? That's exactly what I'm saying. People view them as the underdog, so therefore we must feel superior to them.
