Occupies Buddies Anonymous Threaten Iowa Caucuses

Remember, this is just like the Tea Party, attempting to shut down the democratic process

(Huffington Post) Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad (R) told reporters at his weekly press conference Monday morning that he is taking a threat by the group Anonymous to shut down the Iowa caucuses seriously, even as members of Occupy Des Moines say he’s overreacting and that they are not worried about the threat.

Last week, a DVD credited to Anonymous, an activist hacker group, was left at the Occupy Des Moines encampment. It contained a message on it that was supportive of the protesters’ idea to Occupy the Iowa caucuses.

The Occupiers are already planning on showing up to occupy the caucuses. Anyone think that will work out well?

On Monday, Branstad told reporters, “Obviously we will take this seriously. We intend to work with Homeland Security and law enforcement so the caucuses are not disrupted.”

“This has never happened before,” he said. “We’ve never had this kind of threat made to our open process of giving people an opportunity to participate and we want to do all we can to protect people’s right to participate in this system. I want to assure you that we take it very seriously and we will work with federal and state agencies and with local law enforcement. I think everybody recognizes we need to be vigilant in this and take it seriously.”

Of course, some Occupiers say “tain’t nothing, we won’t disrupt anything.” Because there is no history of violence within the Occupy movement.
