Anonymous Declares Total War on Republican Frontrunner Donald Trump… Again

The group declared war on Trump in December 2015, to no effect as the Republican frontrunner looks to secure the nomination today.

​On March 4, the loose-knit hacktivist organization Anonymous declared “total war” on Donald Trump, calling on hackers around the world to shut down the Republican frontrunner’s websites and “investigate and expose what he doesn’t want the world to know.” The organization said their objective in engaging in online war with Trump is “to dismantle his campaign and sabotage his brand.”

The opening narration of the video states “Dear Donald Trump, we have been watching you for a long time, and what we see is deeply disturbing.” The video then breaks away to a series of uncouth statements by the real estate mogul, including those regarding Megyn Kelly, mocking a disabled reporter, and sexual comments about his daughter, Ivanka.

The Anonymous “call to arms” invites anyone with a computer to spread the word and/or participate in “Operation Trump” or “#OpTrump.” The video closes with an invitation for “everyone to target” the website for the candidate’s luxury hotel in Chicago, trumpchicago.com, on April 1.

Officials are unable to confirm attribution to the cyber activist group because the video was posted from a different YouTube channel than previous Anonymous releases. However, a well-known Twitter account traced to the group — @YourAnonNews – has frequently posted anti-Trump messages since the release of the video.

This isn’t the first time that the hacktivist group has called for the takedown of the Republican frontrunner on the basis of the candidate’s xenophobic, racist, and misogynistic statements. In December 2015, Anonymous declared war on Trump to no discernable effect, as the candidate’s poll numbers and support rose shortly thereafter.

    well I just took a step backwards. I was half believing you guys were for the downtrodden people of the world....superheros out to defend our rights.. Now I see its just the opposite. From my perspective I would rather the devil I don't know than the devils I do know. I know full well the world is in for a rough time if any of the opposition to Trump get into power. I do not know Trump will do a bad job so from this perspective there is hope..How could it get any worse in america or the world for that matter taking a punt on Trump. Personaly I would like to rid the world of all politicians and have people qualified to do the jobs these people make an absolute mess of everywhere and in everything...People that were interviewed, credentials checked, performance based salaries (realistic ones) just like in the 99% world. annonymous ....phooey
  • Anonymous is a CIA sleeper cell, ever wonder why they get so much media attention? Hell they have news reporting their demands and threats! They took down sony for a day what an accomplishment!
  • their hacks rarely contribute anything helpful to the society they supposedly serve, more often than not they're just concerned with making themselves look clever

    Goyimwhisperer, Reminds me of Earth Liberation Front. They had instructions for the best way to make and implement a fire bomb. Those instructions were online and public for years.
  • Where are the conservatives threatening Clinton and Sanders? Is Sanders stalked by violent groups? The "progressives" are finally being honest about what they really want. If you don't agree with them, they'll attack you. We can all think about that during the next "reasonable" gun control law debate.

    Is Anonymous part of the NWO Establishment? Seems they are false opposition.

    The powers that be of the New World Order (the leadership of both the GOP and of the Democratic Party), foreign governments, George Soros (he being the front man for the Illuminati) are all Hell-bent on stopping Donald Trump. They are utterly afraid of him and what he represents. The masses are fed up and angry. Donald Trump is a rich kid who did very well - he took an inheritance worth $50 million in 1981 and made it grow to more than $10 billion today by marketing real estate development through his flamboyant personality. Aside from that, he is angry about what has happened to America and the world (as are very, very many people in this world). Although he's a billionaire and among the 150 richest people on earth, he thinks and talks like "Joe Six Pack" when it comes to how he feels about the current predicament of America and the world.

    jas, Exactly, what you stated reminds me of the anarchist cook book which people were able to buy in book stores and shows you how to make homemade explosives and counter fit money. They need to create a reason for themselves to exist!

    jas, these "progressives" are the same everywhere. In Greece, if someone just utters a word, like "family" or "nation" in a public rally, in minutes an "anti-fascist" protest is formed to cause havoc.
    Who are these people? They are easily identified within the CIA-leftist-party-NGO-Soros-type of organizations. Soros' equal society foundation is spending tons of money in our area. I don't know what he does in the USA. I guess other organizations are in charge there.
