BOO YAH! "Anonymous" Nails Americans For Prosperity!

"Shadowy" Collective Calls for Boycott of Paper, Other Products Manufactured by Koch Industries

Christopher Weber reports at Politics Daily:

The shadowy activists who call themselves "Anonymous," and who made headlines last year for attacking websites opposed to WikiLeaks, have entered the Wisconsin budget fight fray.

The group temporarily knocked out a site belonging to Americans For Prosperity, a political organization backed by David and Charles Koch. In a press release, "Anonymous" said Sunday's denial of service attack was to protest the billionaire brothers' support of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who is seeking to end collective bargaining rights for state workers' unions.

From the release:

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. Americans for Prosperity, Club for Growth and Citizens United are just a few of these organizations. In a world where corporate money has become the lifeblood of political influence, the labor unions are one of the few ways citizens have to fight against corporate greed. Anonymous cannot ignore the plight of the citizen-workers of Wisconsin, or the opportunity to fight for the people in America's broken political system. For these reasons, we feel that the Koch brothers threaten the United States democratic system and, by extension, all freedom-loving individuals everywhere. As such, we have no choice but to spread the word of the Koch brothers' political manipulation, their single-minded intent and the insidious truth of their actions in Wisconsin, for all to witness.
