(UPDATE, 10.4.2011: Anonymous cries foul? In this writer’s humble opinion, the NYSE is going to be erased sooner or later when it is no longer cost effective for TPTB to use as a means to drain America’s wealth.)
The problem with being anonymous is nobody knows if you’re for real.
Last week the hacker activist group Anonymous purportedly released a statement declaring it would cyber attack firms on Wall Street in response to mass arrests and the Ministry of Homeland Security set off alarm bells.
Now Anonymous – or somebody who claims to be Anonymous – says the threat was fake and they are not responsible. They released the following:
Citizens of the world
We are Anonymous! Recently something very disturbing has come to our attention. You must take all notices and information claiming to be ‘Anonymous’ with a grain of salt. Consider EVERYTHING.
Operation Invade Wall Street is bullshit! It is a fake planted operation by law enforcement and cyber crime agencies in order to get you to undermine the Occupy Wall Street movement. It proposes you use depreciated tools that have known flaws such as LOIC.
Anonymous would never tell you to use LOIC – Not after the arrests and failures of Operation Payback.
Anonymous wouldn’t attack NYSE on a HOLIDAY – It is debatable if Anonymous would ever even attack NYSE.
Be wary friends!
We are Anonymous
We are Legion
We do not Forgive
We do not Forget
Be wary of imitations!
Imitations? How would we know?
There should be a rule of thumb in such situations: Cui bono, who benefits?
Certainly not the OWS protesters.
It is interesting the supposed threat and the DHS response to it came as many within the movement have said they will now protest against the real culprit behind the curtain — the Federal Reserve.
The hacker group, ‘Anonymous’ posted a video message for the corporate owned media today stating that they are planning a DDOS attack on October 10th, 2011 that will ‘erase the NYSE from the internet’. Anonymous is fully supporting the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protests and believes that the government is protecting their friends at the expense of the little guy.
I will say it again; the protestors on Wall Street have no real clue yet as to exactly how bad the entire financial situation is currently, yet they have correctly identified the crony capitalists and the banking pirates as being responsible and are now demonstrating for the looting to stop and the prosecuting to begin.
Greetings, Institutions of the Media.
We are Anonymous.
The events transpiring within Wall Street have caught our eye.
It seems that the government and Federal agencies enjoy enforcing the law a little bit too much. They instate unjust laws as mindless automatons, blindly following orders with soulless precision.
We witness the Government enforcing the laws that punish the 99% while allowing the 1% to escape justice, unharmed, for their crimes against the people.
We have observed this same Government failing to enforce even the minimal legal restraints of Wall Street’s abuses. This Government who has willingly ignored the greed at Wall Street has even bailed out the perpetrators that have caused our crisis.
We will not stand by and watch the system take over our way of life.
We the people shall stand against the government’s inaction.
We the people will not be witnesses to your corruption and ill gotten profits.
We will not labor for your leisure.
We will not assist you in any way.
This is why we choose to declare our war against the New York Stock Exchange. We can no longer stay silent as the population is being exploited and forced to make sacrifices in the name of profit.
We will show the world that we are true to our word. On October 10th, NYSE shall be erased from the Internet. On October 10th, expect a day that will never, ever, be forgotten.
Vox Populi, Vox Anon.
The Voice of The People is The Voice of Anonymous.
We are Legion. We are the 99%.
We do not forgive. We do not forget.
Wall Street: Expect us.
