Pop star to become face of “humanitarian” military intervention in Africa

Rihanna has committed to becoming the poster child for western “humanitarian” military intervention in Africa after promising she will visit Uganda to promote the Kony 2012 fraud, despite Ugandans themselves angrily distancing themselves from the viral propaganda film.

Having been identified as one of the cultural icons the Kony 2012 filmmakers deliberately targeted in an attempt to make their film go viral, it was Rihanna tweeting the link out to her millions of followers that got the ball rolling in the first place.

Rihanna then contacted the organization and plans to make a video with them that will further grease the skids for a foreign military intervention in Africa, with a resolution already introduced in Congress toward that end.

During an interview with Access Hollywood, the Barbadian singer explained she was teaming up with Invisible Children, the shadowy foundation group behind Kony 2012, to take on “things that are not OK.”

“I want to get my hands really dirty with that project so I’m planning on going to Uganda later on this year,” she said, adding that she was working with Invisible Children on making a film to publicize the “stop Kony” campaign. Rihanna also praised Barack Obama for “dealing” with Kony by sending in 100 U.S. troops last year.

Rihanna claims she is becoming a poster child for the project to “help the victims” of Joseph Kony. However, as we documented yesterday, the victims in Uganda are appalled that their suffering is being used to create a pretext for western military intervention in Africa that will only create more bloodshed in the long run.

During a broadcast of the Kony 2012 film in a town in northern Uganda, residents reacted with outrage and ended up throwing rocks at the screen to express their disgust at the motivation behind the movie.

In addition, Ugandans now living in America have took to You Tube in droves to savage the film as a transparent ploy to legitimize the US military-industrial complex’s hegemonic agenda under Africom.

An Al-Jazeera tool that tracks reaction to the film from people in Uganda shows that the majority are against the Kony 2012 campaign.

The fact that Rihanna is a pop star whose career revolves around putting out mindless “music” for the consumption of an army of moronic imbeciles, most of whom probably couldn’t even point to the continent of Africa on a map, makes her mobilization of such a legion of idiots all the more dangerous.

Why is she traveling to Uganda to promote a charity now loathed by the vast majority of Ugandans?

While the likes of Rihanna, Angelina Jolie, George Clooney and a whole host of other celebrities have thrown their weight behind the Kony 2012 fraud, despite the fact that Kony and his army are virtually defunct having not even been present in Uganda for six years, real atrocities being committed right now against Ugandans by British carbon trading companies backed by the World Bank are completely ignored.

The Ugandan government, headed up by 30-year dictator Yoweri Museveni, is working with western interests to displace, torture and massacre Ugandan civilians in massive land grabs for the purposes of making millions of dollars in carbon credits for outfits like the New Forests Company.

There is no charity to support these victims, no viral video, and no deluge of celebrities to draw attention to their plight.

Indeed, by supporting the Stop Kony fraud, Rihanna, Clooney, Jolie and their ilk are actually propping up the dictatorial regime in Uganda that is now terrorizing Ugandans just as Joseph Kony’s LRA did previously.
