Hacktivist collective Anonymous has threatened to take down 2016 presidential hopeful Donald Trump, this time declaring “total war” on the GOP frontrunner. Anonymous’ war plan against Trump includes dismantling the candidate’s online presence and digging for dirt on the business tycoon in an attempt to destroy his brand. And you don’t need to be a hacker to participate.


Anonymous are so cringe and the word hacktivist is even worse.

Anonymous were relevant about 10 years ago, now they're just full of empty threats and fedora wearing wankers.
Come back if you want to

And everything must pass

Look anonymous, it's 2016. Surely you could rig up some kind of autocue with a laptop or a tablet, rather than reading off paper.

You stupid fucking bastards.

Hopefully it's not as devastating as when they dropped the Drumpf hats. Now that was pretty cray cray, lemme tell you what. hah, but seriously... we really need to work on shutting down their subreddit

These announcements don't have the power they used to. "Anonymous" used to fight for things people wanted to stand behind, but their shit isn't pulling people in anymore. They went from being fun to being serious to being lame.

Relevant to my first point, as that list points out, Anonymous have been reallllly effective at following through with their threats
http://nymag.com/following/2016/03/everything-upon-which-anonymous-has-declared-war.html

I think that article kind of misses the point of a lot of those.

Like the cat thing for example, the point wasn't just to publicly shame the chick. It was to find out who she was and bring the facts to light so that she could be prosecuted. Which happened.

Or the UK thing where the entire point was to challenge legislation from forever ago and the perception of what constitutes as a peaceful protest and what doesn't.

That said, since literally anyone can be anonymous I'm sure there are really ridiculous things being said all the time by 'them'

Their declaration of "total war" would be scarier if they'd ever done anything noteworthy before.

Sorry man, I kept my name off it and stuff so would rather not say what it is. I was only a kind of researchy person, but had a big input into a couple of specific bits. The book ended up pretty big but I was never overly pleased with the result.
#35
they're going to "dig for dirt" on Donald Trump lol ok
like no one's done that already
like that's changed anything

jfc fucking morons
#38
Why don't they just do the things they want to do instead of talking about it? Like, come out with something first and get people interested. It isn't going to change anything if Trump is apart of a Satanic BDSM cult, as a matter of fact, voters would be more interested in him.

Why don't they just go full out and do something horribly illegal like plant a lot of drugs on him or put child porn on his computer? Find evidence that he murdered someone or make up a murder or something.

Trump is likely pretty clean. He's been in the spotlight for many years and has a reputation of soaking it in all in, why would he jeopardize it with something that would take away his life's blood? He's a media whore. Everything he does is planned and works out to bring more attention to him...

...Wouldn't the best idea then be to take down his websites and make him basically inaccessible to the world? Not to bring "dirt" about him thus making him more interesting so MORE people know about him?

The only way to kill trump is to make the entire world irrelevant to his existence, and Anonymous do not have that power. I guess you could physically kill him too, but that's a little extreme.

This happened a while ago. All these sperglords found and released was boring shit like his address and his kids names. His address is notorious and his kids are celebrities, but other than that this total war was devastating for the Trump campaign.
