    The remaining question: "Why go after Scientology at all?"

    The answer: VALKYRIE.

    What? They are going after Scientology for censorship. Where do you get that it has anything to do with that movie? They got angry when Scientology forced YouTube and others to remove those Tom Cruise videos because Tom came off as looking crazy.

      Moonies = cult that the Bush administration likes.

      Scientology = cult that the Bush administration does not like.

      The Valkyrie movie is the reason why.

      Therefore, the Moonies are left alone, and Scientology is harassed while the government looks the other way.

      Anyone who fails to see the historical parallels between Blackwater & the Nazi SS, or the DHS & the Gestapo, needs a serious reality check.

        Jeez, why aren't Anonymous going after every other whacked-out cult? Why aren't we seeing Anonymous pony up with some answers to the pollution problem? Or health-care coverage? Why won't Anonymous help me pay my bills? WAAAAHHHH!!!

        •  The actual questions - AGAIN - are (0+ / 0-)
          1. Why is Anonymous specifically targeting one group while ignoring another group that does the same things? The difference between the two groups is simply that the one being ignored BushCo approved and the one being harassed isn't.
          1. Why is Anonymous being allowed to get away with it by our government? See answer to #1.

          •  you're thinking about it too much (0+ / 0-)
            1. Maybe the bee in their bonnet happens to be Scientology, and pretty much Scientology alone. Maybe the bugaboo that's moved them to act has specifically something to do with Scientology. Maybe a lot of things.
            1. Go read up on how the internet really works. None of this is all that extraordinary.

            •  Yep, there I go thinking again (0+ / 0-)

              You're not convincing me I'm wrong.

              I know plenty about how the internet works - in fact, I'm fairly sure that at least some of the people connected to Anonymous must be really pissed off about having been taken for a ride by agents of BushCo.

              Which of course explains a lot of the trollery on this diary; shooting the messenger is always easier than going after the gubmint. Scientology is an easy and safe target too. That's what first called my attention to who might really be behind it, in fact.

              •  So (0+ / 0-)

                Was the government behind it all when YTMND, Something Awful, and 4chan turned on eBaums's World for stealing their work and not giving credit?  Why would anonymous target eBaum's World and not some other stupid humor site that steals work without giving credit?  There are lots of those!  Why would the government have let them get away with it?

                There must be a reason.  It's not as clear as Valkyrie, but BushCo must have SOME axe to grind against eBaum's World.
