....UPDATE - latest phony joke "you couldn't make this shit up department -
“Kony 2012” Director Arrested For Public Masturbation - Jason Russell, star and co-creator of viral phenomenon Kony 2012, was arrested in San Diego for public masturbation and vandalizing cars. NBC San Diego is reporting Russell was detained last night, with police describing his behavior as “very strange.”...
Why the Kony Video Could be a Hoax (But It's Not) ... The astounding success of Invisible Children's Kony 2012 video has all the earmarks of a huge hoax, most likely perpetrated by Banksy, the artist who produced Exit Through the Gift Shop. That, at least, was Rob Frankel's response to me, via email, when I asked about this particular video that is making internet history. Kony 2012, of course, is not a hoax, although Frankel makes his "what if" case well (among his arguments the viral velocity is too fast to be real and, in the how-weird-is-that category, Joseph Kony is an anagram for Phony Jokes.) – Erika Morphy, Forbes
Dominant Social Theme: This guy, Kony, the one who eats the hearts of children – get 'im! And when he's gotten, send in NATO to make sure these abuses do not continue.
Free-Market Analysis: Gee, it's getting harder and harder to be the Internet's leading analyst of elite dominant social themes. Take Kony 2012. (Please, TAKE it!)
We saw an article about the Kony 2012 "viral video" probably on Wednesday, the day it was posted. We were shocked and angered at the obviousness of the meme. But BEFORE we could write a word, everybody else had started to!
We've never seen anything like it. It bears out our contention regarding what we call the Internet Reformation – and how it is reaching a kind of critical mass.
The entire alternative media, for all its internecine quarrels, seems perched on a knife-edge now – watching carefully to see what new false-flag the "non-existent" power elite has up its sleeve. And as soon as it senses, aggregately ... even a whiff of a new ploy or gambit ... boy, does it pounce!
This must be debilitating to the powers-that-be. They haven't had this much pushback since the Gutenberg Press began threatening the Catholic Church – apparently causing them to intervene putatively by funding Luther and Calvin.
It's taken less than a week for people to see that the KONY 2012 scam is just that. Maybe the next 'scam' or 'false flag' will be spotted 'as it's happening'.
Are the kids (this planet's future parents) really seeing past all the Fony Propaganda so that Corporate War can ruin more countries for profit and asset?
KONY 2012: State Propaganda for a New GenerationBy VC | March 13th, 2012 | Category: Vigilant Reports | 201 comments
The overnight viral sensation KONY 2012 brought worldwide awareness to the African war criminal Joseph Kony. Beneath this commendable cause, lies however an elaborate agenda that is presented in the video in a very manipulative way. We’ll look at the agenda behind KONY 2012 and how it uses reverse psychology to not only justify a military operation in Africa, but to actually have people demand it.
KONY 2012 is a viral sensation that swept the entire world in less than 24 hours. Its main subject is the African rebel leader Joseph Kony, his war crimes and the clearly defined “movement” to stop him. Countless celebrities have endorsed the movement, news sources have reported it and social media is buzzing with it. While the problem of guerrilla warfare and child soldiers has plagued Africa for decades, and several documentaries have already been produced regarding the issue, this particular 29-minute video made managed to obtain mass exposure and support.
KONY 2012 is less of a documentary than it is a highly efficient infomercial that is tailor-made for the Facebook generation, using state-of-the-art marketing techniques to make its point. Young people like “underground movements” and want to feel like they are changing the world. KONY 2012 taps into these needs to bring about something that is not “hip” or “underground” at all: A military operation in Uganda. Not only that, it urges the participants of the movement to order stuff, to wear bracelets that are associated with an online profile and to record their actions in social media. This makes KONY 2012 the first artificially created movement that is fully track-able, monitor-able and quantifiable by those who engendered it. In other words, what appears to be a movement “from the people” is actually a new way for the elite to advance its agenda.
A Propaganda Experiment
The video begins with an interesting statement: “The next 27 minutes are an experiment. But in order for it to work, you have to pay attention”. It is an experiment as it tests a new, groundbreaking way to get an agenda accepted by the Facebook generation. In the past, when the government needed to justify the invasion of a country, the President would sit in front of the camera and tell the public why war should be declared in this area of the world. In the case of KONY, the military agenda is disguised as grassroots activism, where the US army entering Uganda would be perceived as a “victory of the people”, effectively reversing the communications model....MORE HERE...
KONY 2012 Psy-Op Collapsing
Invisible Children disables comments on viral propaganda video + meet the real Joseph Kony.
by Tony Cartalucci
March 14, 2012 – As the US State Department, USAID centric Invisible Children psy-op KONY 2012 collapses, Invisible Children has disabled comments on their viral YouTube video.
When last checked, negative comments were voted to the top and a cascading effect of skepticism as well as damning facts began drowning out the initial confusion, sympathy, and emotional knee-jerk support the propaganda video purposefully created and preyed upon.

As comments are now being censored – it is suggested that people simply go to the video and click the “dislike” button to voice their opposition to this stunt. Most likely, even that feature will be disabled, and the video KONY 2012 will become the one-way Wall Street infomercial it really is, rather than the faux-participatory “social media” “activism 2.0″ experience it masquerades as being.
The Establishment-Funded “Anti-Establishment” Charity
It has been revealed that indeed Invisible Children has been working with USAID, a US government agency that helps lay the groundwork for what could best be described as a modern-day imperial administrative network. It is now also revealed that Invisible Children attended the 2010 US State Department and Fortune 500 sponsored Alliance for Youth Movements (AYM) summit in London.
AYM (also called Movements.org) it was reported, played a central role in preparing armies of US State Department funded, trained, and equipped activists to carry out the so-called “Arab Spring” years in advance. Much like KONY 2012, the Arab Spring took many by surprise and in the wave of confusion, entire nations were upturned and US proxy regimes installed. Tunisia and Libya are now full fledged client states of Wall Street and London, while the fates of nations like Egypt and Syria still hang in the balance.
Unlike the “Arab Spring” however, the KONY 2012 scam has collapsed almost as fast as it first swept the globe. And as it falls, it is taking with it the credibility of all who participated in it and promoted it, including the deceitful International Criminal Court (ICC) and its chief prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo, as well as Hollywood and the corporate-media who did all in their power to lie, manipulate and make fools out of millions once more in the pursuit of perpetuating the imperial ambitions of Wall Street and London.
KONY 2012 is Casus Belli for Emptying Out Africa
It was reported in “Libyan Rebels Inspired by Globalization” that US-proxy rebel leader, Gibril (Jabril) Elwarfally before the Fortune 500-funded Brookings Institution, would claim Libya’s role in the future was to transition to a service economy, focus on education, and turn Libya into “a lake” to develop the skills of Africans to serve the needs of the European Union. If Africa is a treasure trove of resources, Libya will be the doorway through which the West loots it.
And as the West breaks down the door in North Africa, US Africa Command (AFRICOM) has been concurrently deploying military assets throughout Africa, from Nigeria, across Central and East Africa and southward toward Kenya and even as far as to menace the former British holding of Rhodesia, now known as Zimbabwe.
It has been reported already that in Uganda British firms have participated in land grabs violently displacing up to 30,000 people in single transactions in direct cooperation with Ugandan dictator-for-life Yoweri Museveni. In fact, it is troops under Museveni’s command, who helped displace these people, and who stand to receive additional weapons and funds from Invisible Children’s KONY 2012 campaign.
