By now you've probably seen the slickly produced and obviously well financed video called "Kony 2012". When you first see the video, it's hard not to be moved by it. But what is never discussed amid all of the heartstring plucking is that "Invisible Children", the group who produced the video, are financed in part by the National Christian Foundation, the very same group who funds anti-gay groups such as Focus on the Family and The Family Research Council. This article in The Advocate has a deeper analysis and I thought this portion of 10 O'Clock Live with Charlie Brooker was also insightful on the subject.
Here is correspondent for The Advocate, Jim Morrison's take on it.
All of this could have never prepared me for the completely surreal and
ironic turn of events within the last day or so. The seemingly angelic
director of the "Kony 2012" video, Jason Russell, was detained by the
San Diego police Thursday for being publicly naked, masturbating and
obviously drug-induced (although his business partners claim it was
stress related). The video is NSFW, so I will link to it and you can watch at your own discretion.
