It Was Pimply Hacker-Heros Anonymous Who Really Freed Egypt!

THE hacker nerds Anonymous really are everybody’s favourite freedom fighters right now. Forget the fact that they are largely greasy-haired 19 year-olds fiddling with themselves in dark rooms in Oregon, some sections of the media have elevated them to the status of wavy-haired Che Gueveras. Those kids aren’t just watching tentacle porn! – They’re liberating oppressed peoples!
Al Jazeera got all gooey over the part Anonymous played in bringing democracy to Egypt. In an article explaining the hackers’ role in toppling Middle East tyrannies, they said:

Alberto Granado RIP: Che Guevara Got The T-Shirts, You Got Old

Benecio Del Toro On Che Guevara, Cuba’s Batman

BENECIO Del Toro says Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara, was “a warrior” and a super hero:

We tell stories about Batman, and he was a type of Batman. No one can deny that he was trying to stop man exploiting man. Whether he was successful or not…”

Looking To Big Daddy Fidel Castro For Love

ALICE WALKER is looking at Barack Obama and John McCain, and seeking Fidel Castro. No, not dear Che Guevara; he’s easy to find:

This is what I want for our country, more than anything. I want a leader who can love us.. But when the lights are out and I’m left with just the stars in a super-dark sky, and I feel the new intense chill that seems to be the underbreath of even the hottest day, when I know that global warming may send our planet into a deep freeze even before my remaining years run out, then I think about what it is that truly matters to me.
