Anonymous Accuses Feds of "Fear-Mongering," Denies Plans to Attack Power Grid
|Anonymous hates banks, loves people|
In short, the online hacking group might be many things, but "domestic terrorist" isn't one of them. So Anonymous is using the NSA's warning, which was communicated via the Wall Street Journal today, as another opportunity to reiterate its overall message: Don't trust the government.
Here are two tweets that came from a Twitter account associated with Anonymous:
The NSA's reprehensible fear-mongering and attempts to discreditAnonymous backs up its points with this clear argument: While these shady hackers are out to disrupt rich corporations and the government, they aren't here to further ruin life for the little guy.
#Anonymous are transparent and baseless.
NSA's alarmist rhetoric & fear-mongering is reprehensible. They should focus on the myriad of current security holes.
As one Anon member told Gizmodo today: "Anonymous' general viewpoint recently has been fighting on behalf of ordinary citizens against leaders and power structures. Attacking electricity grids would harm those people more than our opponants [sic]."
So why would the NSA generate this kind of alarm? Simple: We could care less if Anonymous attacks big corporations or cops, but if those hackers dare shut off our lights ... we'll rip their Guy Fawkes off!
