Skip to comments.Machine Gun Preacher on Kony 2012 (Muslim Brotherhood angle)

Earlier this week, I wrote about the Kony 2012 video and that while it espouses the noble goal of removing Joseph Kony from the Uganda region, there is also a uniquely surreal aspect to it. The man known as the Machine Gun Preacher, Sam Childers knows more about the region than anyone. He has been on the ground there for fourteen years. He builds orphanages for children and protects them with actual weaponry. In short, he's not your typical missionary.
Childers has issued a response to Invisible Children's Kony 2012 video and while he congratulates the charitable organization for drawing attention to Joseph Kony, he stresses that Kony is just a "small part" of the problem. The larger part? Northern Sudan's president Hassan al-Bashir, who according to Childers, has been the source of Kony's funding for years. Any guesses as to what group Bashir belongs to?
The Muslim Brotherhood.
