Kony 2012, a dangerous pro foreign intervention movie

Okay, so I see a lot of hate about our neoconservative 'friends' who love foreign intervention. Of course, we get mad at them as foreign intervention is the least conservative position to support in regards to foreign policy. Well here comes Kony 2012... probably the first internet propaganda movie. In it, we see the liberal foreign interventionalist belief that we have to impose our will on other people just from a democratic vote in Congress. Also, our soldiers are just play things to force other nations to 'do good'. This movie is a very dangerous thing this election as both sides will try to out warmonger each other to the point of agreeing on everything. This movie undermines Ron Paul's message of peace and liberty. I am sure someone else on the DP can articulate better than me how wrong this movie is.

Movie!

Now there's an idea! If Sarah Palin can have a flick in her name, why not Ron Paul? There would be a much greater story line if Paul is the star character. What a life he's had, and what a movement he has started!

Now that's some good Hollywood stuff!

Pure propaganda

Just blogged about this

We should use this to show

We should use this to show the utter hypocrisy of our government! Much less evil was happening in Libya, but they have oil, and our government bombed them without any backing from the public!

Not everything is a

Not everything is a conspiracy theory. Post like this do no good.

Maybe..

So maybe it is not a conspiracy. Still amounts to misguided foolishness.

Do they have a plan about what to do once they kill Kony?

Will they adopt the children brought up on guns?

Will other families whose member they've killed adopt them?

Will they be protected afterwards or tried as criminals?

No plan, no idea, just a self-righteousness born out of ignorance. Conspiracy or not, it should be called out for what it is.

What about this is a damn conspiracy?

It is obvious that this movie is a pro interventionist movie. Get it? Is that a conspiracy that liberals want to intervene in countries to make them 'do good'? hmmm? Get real man. I am sick and tired of these conspiracy critics that come out of the woodwork and say that anything we post that is fact is some sort of conspiracy.

It is also obvious that this movie will further the interventionist paradigm making liberals want to create ANOTHER war in Uganda. For Christ sake, the writing is on the wall (pardon the pun if you know where the writing on the wall comes from).

What's sad is these liberals

What's sad is these liberals might not realize that "Kony" fits the profile for a CIA asset. I watched that movie and pictured a mass of ObamaBots writing letters for ALL the wrong reasons.

"I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, be wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove."

I watched the Vid....

and I don't see it as the same concept as the "nation" building that we are against. The concept in the vid shows that the government does not want to do anything for humanitarian purposes unless it has a vested interest. When this movement started over 10 years ago there was no vested interest in this (so the movement itself I do not see as bad)
I do think that the government now sees something that can use out of this (a way to pressure a neighboring country without the use of force. The hard thing is that the line gets blurred really fast and the lives of these children are not the interest of the entire movement.
I would be for Capturing KONY but not sure if it is right to push this in the political way like you push a Candidate who is running for President!
It is interesting tho..... in many ways.

My friend

drew parallels to their desires like wanting advisers to the advisers in Vietnam and the eventual take war in Vietnam.

Our Constitution does not permit us to intervene unless the president makes his case and the Congress votes on an act of war. I am sorry for what these kids have to go through, but we can all raise private funds and maybe these guys could raise a private militia to go over there and fix things for their perfect liberal and trendy perfect world. I do not want our soldiers to be used as toy soldiers for some trendies who are to cowardly to fight in the trenches.

Also, there are the economic realities. Even our interventionalist government cannot be everywhere. Our military is also building up Africon and our bases in Africa are growing due to Chinese influence. So, eventually we will intervene in Africa after we screw China out of their soft power investments. This is not a case of heartlessness in what they are saying, but a prudent strategic move for the NWO.

All these anti-Kony people need

for us to intervene militarily is contact their Congressmen & Senators and voice their want to go to WAR against him.

Imagine that, the PEOPLE telling the government who to go to war with!!!

great or better (op) title though!

It is just Kony 2012

Mine puts the truth out that it is a pro interventionist movie that tricks liberals into being pro war... well not tricks... being liberal is all about being pro war.

Democracy (mob rule) in action.

Spooky. Who or what will be the next target of getting the collective to spurn? What criteria will be applied? Who decides?

Undo what Wilson did

Neoliberals are as lethal as Neocons: Kony2012 proves it

Neoliberals are as lethal as Neocons: Kony2012 "proves" it. Well, I cannot say that for sure, as I don't know if I want to watch it.

I've been following the cruel exploits of Josef Kony and his LRA for fifteen years now. But I have to ask, "Why now?"

Why so much hype over Kony and Obama's helpful intervention NOW, when Kony is so small and weak?

Fifteen years ago, he commanded an army of 10,000. I bet he's down to 100 now.

How many men does the movie say he's got? Anyway, its pure neoliberal "we must use our power for good" which is what suckered a lot of liberals into support George W.'s insane global perpetual war on terror theorum.

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

It's an election year

and way too many people are becoming aware that the US Presidency has become dictatorial and unilateral when it comes to war for profit or special causes. They need a "poster-child" to continue the liberal/neo-con agenda of intervention. If you oppose unilateral or non-approved military intervention in Uganda, then you're just a heartless sociopath. If you want to send our troops into harm's way to oust ONE man for his crimes against humanity, without obeying the Constitution, then you're on the "right" side.

We supported Chairman Mao

and the communist Chinese have conservatively killed 100 million of their own people. I guess it would be politically incorrect to say that to these people since all their goods come from Chinese slave labor. You cannot be a liberal trendy without having an Iphone 4. Lets focus on the real evils of the world rather than small time demons who sure are evil as hell, but we have to clean up our own backyard before we can start criticizing others.

I would argue that they were not suckered

but GW being a liberal (neocons are progressives), played to their weaknesses in their hearts. In the end, progressives want to control anything and everything. They would regulate the sun if they could luckily they cannot.
