KONY 2012: Stop Kony

Who in the world is Kony?? And why do we have to stop Kony?

I was curious and I was like O_O 'cause it's a trending topic on twitter all day!

With 26,684,765 views on YouTube, I wonder why millions of people want to know who and what Joseph Kony is and what he's doing? Hmmm... he must be really famous.

I went from not knowing who Kony is to knowing a lot about him in a matter of 30 minutes.For those who want to make this world a slightly better place, do find out who Joseph Kony is.

Everyone should take 30 minutes out of their day and watch this!

Please watch and share.

After watching this video, I finally know who the real Joseph Kony is and why everyone is making him famous. This video of a Ugandan warlord has gone viral and it breaks my heart to see those poor kids.

So who is Joseph Kony?



1. The man named Joseph Rao Kony is a Ugandan guerrilla group leader, head of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), a group engaged in a violent campaign to establish theocratic government based on the Ten Commandments throughout Uganda. The LRA is a militant group with a syncretic Christian extreme religious ideology. They are known for the extreme atrocities they commit against civilians, including murder, mutilations, rape, and in some accounts even cannibalism.

2. Joseph Kony abducts children and forces them to join his army. This has been going on for 20 years. He needs to be stopped.

3. Kony is some African guy who's forcing kids into becoming slaves and telling boys to kill their families & for girls to become his sex slaves.

4. Kony is the worst living criminal. He's actually on top of the list of the world's worst war criminals.

5. Kony is basically Adolf Hitler. He has an army of 30,000 mindless children who slaughters innocent people.

6. Last but not the least, Joseph Kony is a bad guy.

Now, do you know who Kony is? You should if you believe in justice. I reckon the Justice League superheroes or Spartacus and his men could stop Kony.

We've seen these kids, we've heard their cries, this war must END, we will not stop, we will not fear, we will fight! STOP KONY.

I support the international to arrest him, disarm the LRA and bring the child soldiers home. Let's support the cause Kony 2012.

KONY 2012 is a film and campaign by Invisible Children that aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice. The intention of the production is to draw attention to Kony in an effort to increase United States involvement in the issue.

And to everyone who is “sick and tired"of seeing Kony 2012 everywhere, on their timeline or on twitter, I bet those poor girls are "sick" and fed up of being raped, those little boys are “sick and tired” of being forced to murder and slaughter innocent people, even their own parents. I'm pretty sure that the government in Uganda is “hella sick” of not being able to stop him. Well, guess what, we’re sick of these negativity. Let go of the bad vibes people and spread the word.

As for me, I made a commitment to stop Kony and to keep spreading the words! I have watched their video, and I've heard their story. You should too.
