False flag? Anonymous issues ‘call to arms’ – declares war on U.S.

(examiner.com) Is Anonymous advocating violent revolution for the United States?

Anonymous declares war on the U.S. government: A new video release from those claiming to represent the international Internet hacktivist collective known as Anonymous seems to be advocating for a violent revolution in the U.S. This declaration of war is identified as “Operation V.”

Operation V raises concerns and questions. Many reject the legitimacy of the operation because a “call to arms,” if taken literally, is a call to violence; and Anonymous has practiced, and preached, an ethic of non-violence.

Indeed, up to this point in time Anonymous has been passionately non-violent, and a harsh critic of law enforcement and other government authorities that resort to violence to silence protest and censor free speech. Operation V seems to abandon this core commitment to non-violence, which leaves many questioning the operation’s legitimacy.

Some speculate that Operation V is a false flag, an operation being promoted in order to discredit and ultimately harm the powerful movement Anonymous represents. If Anonymous is portrayed as a violent group, they may be classified as terrorists, and thus be silenced and intimidated.

In addition, Anonymous currently enjoys a great deal of public support. However, many will abandon that support if it is perceived that Anonymous is embracing violence as a legitimate response to disputes.
