Anonymous = Terrorists? (0)

Just when "anonymous" has become a branch for the global Islamic terrorist network?

Since the Mossad and US Cybercommand teamed up to generate a false-no-flag "Anonymous" op against relatively inconsequential sites.

I'd guess because Anon is composed of a large percentage of young people from the "OWS" school of political thought.

There has been a disturbing increase among young OWS-types in the amount, shrillness, and blatant anti-Jewish hatred and bigoted rhetoric in the US in recent years. There was a lot of that kind of hatred and bigotry against Jews on display at the OWS protests. It reminds me of the stories my WW2-vet father told me about the anti-Jewish hatred being propagated prior to WW2.

Up until Hitler and Germany started attacking our allies, the people in the US loved Nazis and there were even Nazi camps, retreats, huge rallies and public events, right in the US in places like NY and NJ and in the NW.

Here's a Nazi rally in Madison Square Garden: http://jmac90.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/german-american-bund-rally-1939.jpg [wordpress.com]

It kind of makes a creepy kind of sense, since events and actions in the US over the last decade or three up until now has remarkable similarities to events and actions taken in the former Wiemar Republic prior to it's collapse and the rise of Hitler and the National Socialists. It scares me what may emerge out of a US collapse. If we're not careful, it's quite possible what could emerge from a US collapse would make any of the tyrannies of the past pale in comparison in terms of evilness.

Don't worry; the targeted ethnicity this time will be all-embracive and all-inclusive -- as will be the few on the other side administering the tyranny. Evil has learned the virtues of surface diversity. If you want to worry about such future varieties of Nationalism, I recommend considering China.

Whoosh.

Without the US as an opposing superpower, what will there be to stop China and Russia from basically dividing up the planet between each other (that is if the US doesn't re-emerge as the new totalitarian police-state, superpower aggressor like a N. Korea with the power of the US military-industrial complex)? You think the EU could stand up to any of those threats? You think the remaining (after the Western economic collapse sure to either follow shortly after or occur roughly simultaneously with a US collapse) NATO countries won't fold along with the EU against such threats, without the US?

If the US seriously collapses for any length of time, individual freedom worldwide will take a huge hit. Nobody will escape the negative consequences. It may be a milkenia or more before the world enjoys anywhere near the amount of freedom that exists today.

No people who have lost their freedom have ever regained it within their generation. Choose your path and who you trust carefully. Appearances can be, and in politics/ideology almost always are, deceiving to say the least.

If I couldn't read through typos, I'd never know what I wrote. Regarding your response, I'm afraid I can't add much in return. It's going to get real strange, no doubt.

Why isn't this story posted? (1)

petman (619526) | about a year and a half ago | (#42011799)

I'm surprised that this story is not posted on the slashdot front page yet. Could it be that the mods are politically biased and are purposely choosing to ignore this obviously relevant story? Come on, "... stuff that matters". This matters!
