Meet the “Scary Leader” of Anonymous
I just stumbled upon this blog while doing the egotistical thing of googling my own name. Buried deep on page 9 of entries was the Weblog of G. Allen. I was amazed by what I discovered. I don’t think I have ever heard of this guy before but he was one of those named in Clearwater by Scientology when they tried to get an injunction against Anonymous to stop the March 15th Picket.
They are accusing him of being an evil mastermind behind Anonymous when in fact, he was essentially a passerby snared in Scientology’s insane investigative net.
The first [picket] was on February 10th. Every large Scientology office was protested.
A friend and I went to the protest in Clearwater, we took cameras and shot some film, I got to meet some of the Anon kids, that was pretty much it.
Last week we started noticing people skulking around, taking pictures of our house. Last week Scientology also filed some kind of restraining order and apparently, my name was on it. Why? Because I was in downtown Clearwater on Feb 10th.
How? They ran my tag.
The restraining order was long and absurd, it had a laundry list of supposed threats that anonymous people had made. According to Scientology, YouTube vids were posted that were clearly bomb threats. These were swiftly yanked due to TOS violation (I had not seen these myself but I’ve flagged a few others for removal in my time.)
The judge refused to sign off on the the order(s) (there were two, perhaps three.) he cited lack of evidence, (paraphrased) “come back when you can pin these acts on people,” he said, not ephemeral groups like Anonymous.”
And so it goes, I went to the Friday night March 14th protest, It was not a very large protest, rainy and very wet. P.I agents were all over the place and the Clearwater PD were glumly standing in the rain. The Anon kids were very polite, I had a cup of coffee with them after and chatted, we all laughed at the P.I.s stationed outside the restaurant.
When I got home, there was a note on the door, VIPS was here with a delivery for you. Ref number 501.
Hmm I thought.
About ten minutes later the doorbell rang, some fellow claiming to be a process server. I signed for a package and wished him a good night. What I found was a DVD of a video that Scientology posted on YouTube a few days before. A really cockamamie, overblown thing entitled “ANONYMOUS, hate crimes.” I’ve seen it associated with some Scientology outing page. Since it was YouTube there were a number of complainants and the entire YouTube channel was taken down. I think the video is still around somewhere.
Mr. Allen, or G. if you prefer, thanks for sharing your story. I’d urge everyone to read his report and ask yourself, what other religion would behave in this despicable manner?Explore posts in the same categories: Anonymous
