Last week, Anonymous took on Topeka's gay-hating Westboro Baptist Church. Anonymous announced on its website the plan to go after the Koch bros as a sign of solidarity with union workers protesting in Wisconsin. Anonymous said on its website: "The Koch brothers have made a science of fabricating 'grassroots' organizations and advertising campaigns to support them in an attempt to sway voters based on their falsehoods."
Here's more from the Anonymous press release:
Koch Industries, and oligarchs like them, have most recently started to manipulate the political agenda in Wisconsin. Governor Walker's union-busting budget plan contains a clause that went nearly un-noticed. This clause would allow the sale of publicly owned utility plants in Wisconsin to private parties (specifically, Koch Industries) at any price, no matter how low, without a public bidding process. The Koch's have helped to fuel the unrest in Wisconsin and the drive behind the bill to eliminate the collective bargaining power of unions in a bid to gain a monopoly over the state's power supplies.reported that Anonymous' first strike was knocking down the Koch-backed website for Americans for Prosperity with a denial of service attack (the site is back up again). Anonymous' second offensive: A good ol' fashioned boycott of Koch's paper products under the Georgia Pacific brand name.
Couldn't happen to a couple nicer guys!
