Stephen Colbert explains Anonymous: the 'global hacker nerd brigade' (Video)

By Melissa Bell

A member of Reddit caught this on Thursday night's show. The Guy Fawkes' mask, a symbol for Anonymous, flashed over Colbert's face. (Screengrab from "The Colbert Report." )

Before Anonymous attacked the Westboro Baptist Church, the group showed why its best not to mess with the loosely organized "hacktivists" by attacking web security firm HBGary. HBGary had threatened to reveal the identities of members of Anonymous, so Anonymous retaliated by revealing the firm's emails and causing general mayhem.

Colbert explains why perhaps you shouldn't challenge Anonymous:

The United States Gov is no longer for the people, by the people.

International Bankers and Multinational corporations own the world.

How much longer are we going to allow this?

1% of the population holds 99% of the nation's wealth.

You work on average for 4 months out of a year as slave labor to pay your income tax that not a dime of goes to any federal expence other than to line the pockets of the international bankers who print the money and charge interest every time a bill is release..

Where do you get the money to pay the interest? By taking more money from them.. At more interest...

It is a debt that is impossible to pay..
The current system is slavery masked.

How long do you wish to remain a slave?

I personally think we should be burning politicians and insanely rich in the streets alive.

Your born into slavery with no consent given. You never agreed to be part of their system yet it is forced upon you.. Lets see how they like it.

Governments of the world should thank the global corporation for providing taxes and the utility of wealth creation. Despite the demonization of capitalism, corporations keep the world from starving or destroying itself in the never ending wars of jealousy. Corporations navigate a global kludge trying not to blow any circuits resisted by government power drains. Corporations motivate productivity in competition and in employees. They respect the employees’ work-life balance. They respect the welfare of communities they operate in. Without corporations charities would fail. Corporate citizens of the world unite!
