The Hacktivist collective Anonymous has released a new video, this time addressing President Obama and his gun control policies.
In the video, Anonymous uses a comparison of Obama and Adolf Hitler to protest the president's intentions.
During the 15-minute message, the group accuses Obama of trying to disarm legal gun owners to create a tyranny. They explain that Obama has a plan to use the public's sympathy for the Sandy Hook shooting victims to force his "gun grabbing agenda" on citizens.
The video says: “Throughout history, authoritarian governments have used gun violence as an excuse to take people’s firearms and control their population. This is exactly what Adolf Hitler did to disarm the German people and look at the atrocities his administration did. Obama has been working hard to try and ban all semi-automatic weapons and shot guns while at the same time increasing the weapons and firepower that police and government agencies have.”
They also attacked mainstream media, saying that the media work with Obama to "demonize" legal gun owners and ignore the violence committed by law enforcement against U.S. citizens.
Anonymous brought up several shootings that occurred recently in which unarmed suspects were targeted by police, including the murder of a handcuffed prisoner in San Francisco. Also discussed was the fact that cities with strict gun laws have the highest rates of murder and violent crime.
Once the video was released, many Obama supporters tried to discredit it by saying it was fake or that it was created by the NRA.
But the video seems to be Anonymous's, as it has the same appearance and tone of their most recent videos.
The group goes by the motto: "We are Anonymous. We are legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us."
UPDATE: Scratch that. Apparently it's a fake.
