    Colbert: Crossing Anonymous Is Like Sticking Your Penis In a Hornets’ Nest


    80916_32.jpg Adrian Chen
    Anonymous has attracted plenty of attention from all sorts of news organizations; but their recent pro-Wikileaks hack attacks have finally landed them on the most important show in all of television: "The Colbert Report." Colbert dug into the twisted saga of Anonymous vs. the security firm HBgary, which ended with HBGary employees' inboxes spilled all over the web. Colbert at his geekiest, and good press for Anonymous—here's a rare mainstream outlet portraying them in almost heroic light, compared with usual darkness.
    Literally cannot wait until Glenn Beck discovers Anonymous.


    Fucking hilarious.


    Per the reddit link posted by Anonymous below, this clip took place while Colbert interviewed Glen Greenwald about all of the HBGary stuff (Greenwald was very favorable about anon).

    I'm a bit freaked out by its awesomeness, however, cannot confirm it yet. Need to find the Greenwald interview portion. I'll let you look for yourself, but watch the 4th second carefully.

    FINAL EDIT (?)
    The whole episode does not appear to be online yet. However, I can confirm this as I forgot until a few moments ago that I dvr colbert every night (yes, I'm stoned, fuckers). Just replayed it and it occurs during the portion of the Greenwald interview while Greenwald responds to Colbert asking "how powerful is anonymous".

    I believe that Colbert was correct in his statement, " Crossing Anonymous is like sticking your penis in a hornet's nest"!

    So how much did we have to give to Colbert for this?

    OP updated again. I'm confirming it. Have it on DVR.
  25. At least someone can spell 'Colbert' correctly. Right, back to read the OP.
  26. Right, like Colbert has never crossed swords with anonymous before. Although this brings a new dimension.

    Love it.

    Also, Colbert got Huckabee to agree that Obama is not a Muslim and that the Tea Party is not really Paul-esque fiscal conservatives, but are in fact traditional christian social conservatives in fiscal conservative's clothing.

    I'd post that Colbert IS Anonymous, but then he wouldn't be Anonymous anymore. Colbert has sent us love since the beginning and has left plenty of "messages" along the way that he's paying attention to what we do.
