Anonymous activists released a video calling for “revolution” and violence at the RNC Convention next week.
Police have already discovered a stash of weapons linked to Anonymous.
The radical group called for violence at the RNC Convention:
The time is coming, RNC is near. So we lay a final message to the Activists that will be at RNC. As well as a message to people of America. And a special message for the ones who have been feeding misinformation to the public the F.B.I, T.P.D and PI Bill Warner. The public needs to know that they should not fear us, we are on the side of the American people. We are not terrorists but we are not pacifists. We are Anonymous, we fight for every American who is sick of politicians and corporations running our lives, making our decisions and causing the suffering of our people. No matter how many of us fall in battle we can not be stopped. Anonymous is indeed very real and alive. We are collectives of normal everyday Americans all around you, we are not a few but many. We all share one ideology, what we stand for is true freedom. Freedom from the oppressive regime that our government has become. Let us band together and knock down the walls of the clean zone for it violates our constitution. The city of Tampa is our city, the peoples city. Together united by one divided zero we will fight for what belongs to the people. May freedom be with you all.
