Not content with waging war on ISIS, the KKK and other abbreviated hate groups, the hacker collective known as Anonymous have now turned its attention to dealing with DT. Yes, that other toxic, war-mongering entity known as Donald Trump.
If this sounds familiar then it might be because late last year, the keyboard anarchists were linked to a significant hack on the Trump Tower website, allegedly in response to the Republican blowhard’s comments about banning Muslims from the US.
According to a new video from the group (below), that was the work of a splinter faction, and now #OpTrump is official.
Encouraging fellow hackers and all computer users to help crash various Trump-related websites, starting with TrumpChicago.com, the group claims it wants to destroy his brand after growing weary of seeing the Presidential candidate exploiting mankind’s hatred for political gain.
This is a call to you–we need you to shut down his websites, research and expose what he doesn’t want the public to know. We need you to dismantle his campaign and sabotage his brand. We are encouraging every able person with a computer watching this video to participate in this operation. You do not need to know how to hack to support this important operation. If you are able to re-upload this video to your channel, you will help to give this operation the momentum it needs. Share this video. This is not a warning–this is a declaration of total war. Operation Trump engaged.
Of course following the shocking protests and scuffles over race issues which transpired at Trump rallies in Chicago this past weekend, this declaration of war coincides with the first true signs of damage in the outspoken billionaire’s campaign, which may prove a tipping point. His air of confidence may be deflating.
If Trump is using a computer right now, he might want to take note of this.
