The infamous hacker group known as Anonymous has declared war on Donald Trump; much to the appreciation of some, and the disdain of others.
In their most recent video, an apparent representative of the collective stated the following:
“Donald Trump, it has come to our attention that you want to ban all Muslims from entering the United States. This policy is going to have a huge impact. This is what ISIS wants. The more Muslims feel sad, the more ISIS feels they can recruit them. The more the United States appears to be targeting Muslims, not just radical Muslims, you can be sure that ISIS will be putting that on their social media campaign. Donald Trump, think twice before you speak anything. You have been warned…”
This declaration against Trump comes a few weeks after the hacker group declared war on ISIS in a similar fashion. They attempted to oust Twitter accounts associated with ISIS (which happened to be inaccurate), and they also released a list of possible attacks, which also proved to be false.
Even if the cyber war declared on ISIS proved to be ineffective, it is still good for a group as heavily publicized as Anonymous to be speaking out against ISIS, but also defending the Muslim faith as a whole.
While their attack on ISIS has so far been ineffective, their attack on Trump may prove to be more effective, as The Donald–as he is so affectionately called–is a much easier target; they have already claimed to have taken www.trumptowerny.com down for a short time. And if they are able to dig up any dirt on Trump, it could be the end of his political career.
Or would it just raise his polls some more?
