Anonymous Warns of ‘Insurrection in America’ Due to Obama’s Gun Grab
PJ ^ | January 17, 2013 - 1:19 pm | Bridget Johnson

Posted on 01/20/2013 1:51:38 PM PST by ImJustAnotherOkie

The international hacktivist group Anonymous today warned of “insurrection in America” as the government controls and twists the narrative on gun-related incidents.

Known for the Guy Fawkes masks worn at protests, Anonymous has styled itself as an anti-authority crusader against government corruption and lack of transparency, and supported the Occupy protests. And now the hackers are stepping into the gun control debate, warning in a lengthy message today that “throughout history authoritarian governments have used gun violence as an excuse to take peoples firearms and control there population.”

“Obama has been working hard to try and ban semi-automatic weapons and shotguns while at the same time increasing the weapons and firepower that police and government agencies have. Within minutes of the Connecticut shooting, politicians were on the state run media saying it was time to get rid of the guns and they will be talking about it for weeks to come,” Anonymous wrote on its blog. “The Obama administration and his government funded media have been promoting this idea for months. Everytime there is a shooting performed by a crazy person the media talks about it non-stop for weeks or months. But when there is an illegal or unlawful shooting by police that does not fit Obama’s agenda the story is barely mentioned.”

Anonymous notes that not only do police shootings barely get any attention, but cases where slaying are committed without guns or where guns are used to save lives also fly under the radar.

“Mr. Obama the 2nd amendment of the US Constitution does not talk about an army, that is covered elsewhere in the constitution. It does talk about a well regulated militia which is made of civilians with their own weapons. The second amendment of the US Constitution does not talk about protecting government or government resources, but it does talk about being necessary for the security of a free state. The second amendment of the US constitution does not say a single word about hunting or sport. But it does say ‘The peoples right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed’.”

“To the American people, as many laws have been banning firearms in cities such as Chicago, New York, and Washington D.C have been implemented and as the courts get them, they are now being overthrown as being unconstitutional. Even if they were not ruled on, they are an infringement to your second amendment rights and you have no obligation to obey it and the courts have no obligation to enforce it.”

In a section directly addressing Obama, Anonymous warns there will be “no further tolerance” of any act to infringe on the Constitution, confiscate weapons or control gun ownership, or enter into any treaty that would do the same.

“Any action taken by you to attempt to perform those acts or similar acts as interpreted by the American people or any attempt by you to skirt your responsibility to the true office of the presidency will be viewed by many people as your willfull act of insurrection and treason,” Anonymous continues. The group then goes on to detail how Obama could be removed, by military force if necessary.

One wonders how Anonymous might use its hacking skills that have perpetually confounded the government and big business to step in on the side of gun-rights proponents.

I was just wondering where anonymous would fall on this. Whatever their politics, they’re a good group to have on your side.

OWS types and Tea Partiers worked together after Sandy in assisting the people of Staten Island and the Rockaways. While I hold no truck with their marxism, they seem not to be the regimented drones of communists and they have a genuine distrust for big institutions. At a time when we may need any ally, I would not write them off.

I don’t quite know how to digest this either. They don’t make idle threats, and they definitely have a problem with authority. I guess the zero wandered into their sights this time.

I wonder if some other group isn’t co-opting Anonymous’ name and notoriety on this. Gun rights don’t seem to fit their usual objectives. I’m not sold on Anonymous’ part in this.

We should have known. The “real” Anonymous are probably fake “anarchists” who support a totalitarian state 100%.

Same here. And no group can hide their underlying base beliefs for long.
Maybe it's another broken clock organization.

There have been three so-called Anonymous clips in the past three months, all of which have been debunked as hoaxes by posers passing themselves off as Anonymous.

Anonymous has a vastly different agenda than what’s portrayed here. They are pro-homosexual but anti-pedophile, allied with the Occutards, harbor a particular hatred of Scientologists, and want unrestricted downloads of movies and music files (in other words, they want free stuff).

Criticizing Dear Leader and Socialism, and supporting those eeeeevil guns, is not their MO in the least. This is most likely another hoax.

It’s a shame. If they had any sense they’d embrace it for real.

That's great, just as long as all of the degenerate morons that voted for him are dealt with as well.

Look around, the enemy is standing right next to you.

It’s getting hard for anyone to feel comfortable with a heavily armed government and a disarmed citizenry. Left, right or in between. I don’t think I would side with Anonymous but if they want to take out totalitarians in positions of power I’m not going to get in their way.

You say that like it is a bad thing. "Anarchy" translates from ancient languages to "being without a ruler" in today's vernacular.

Windflier posted the link to the video earlier. I viewed the entire video. They definitely lay out a clear case showing that Obama has committed treason against the Constitution. They seem supremely p*ssed.

It's a bizarre world in which Anonymous stands up more strongly for the Constitution than our girly leaders such as Boehner.

I read comments about this video that stated that those who stated it isn't from Anonymous are lying. There was a link (credible? ) that has Anonymous stating it's valid.

My gut now tells me it's NOT from Anonymous.

Still, whoever made it presents a damning case against Obama -- lol.

Personally I can’t fault them about Free Stuff over the internet. Nothing on the internet is truly secure. Use it at your own risk.

Anything you post is just like leaving it on the side of road and expecting it to be there later.

I would say that that statement is false. The enemy of your enemy may very well be your enemy as soon as you have both disposed of the first.

Biggirl - Some "seriously lib" friends of mine have also been anticipating a civil war.

And these lib friends are all gun owners!

I guess if you anticipate a civil war, better get yourself armed in advance for your safety and security.

Ain't it though?

I've nearly come to the conclusion that we patriots are all on our own. Very few elected reps on the Republican side are vociferously standing up for our God-given rights and the Constitution. That they refuse to stand as the vanguard of freedom, means that they're abdicating what standing they do have, to the states and the people.

I think we all know what that will lead to.

No, but if you want to leave the group, there's a twelve step program known as "Anonymous Anonymous".
