Chase Bank contributed $1 million to Invisible Children to help them produce the KONY 2012 campaign, among other programs. JP Morgan Chase is also a major investment banker of Tullow Oil. That’s right, the oil company that needs US military help to pump oil out of Uganda.
EXXON MOBILE WAS A SPONSOR OF KONY2012?!?! Oh HELL no!
That explains the huge budget, the the large sense of urgency. When I tell you oil companies are literally DESTROYING every nation in Africa that they are situated in (including my parents home, Nigeria)… Go google “the resource curse” and Africa. Holy fucking shit.
Honestly, if it’s an oil company behind this I have no doubt that they are going to continue until they get what they set out for.
Wake up America and stop letting these corporations literally get away with murder. Just because we live in this’d eastern bubble of sunshine and unicorns, doesn’t mean imperialism hasn’t been persisting for the past couple hundred years…
Whaaaaaat. Although, I’m not surprised. It always pays to follow the money. And it’s really interesting that the same people who immediately forwarded links and tweets about Phony 2012 have nothing to say about Trayvon Martin…
