Anonymous Launches #OpTrump to Teach the Donald a Lesson

Anonymous has already declared cyberwar with ISIS leaders. Now, the hacktivist group is using its power to take down another radical: Donald Trump.

In a video posted online this week, Anonymous has committed to fighting back against Trump’s highly publicized proposal that all Muslim people be banned from traveling to the United States.

“This policy is going to have a huge impact. This is what ISIS wants,” the masked figure in the video says. “Donald Trump, think twice before you speak anything. You have been warned, Donald Trump.”

The group has already launched a campaign called #OpTrump, aimed at taking down the presidential candidate’s online footprint. According International Business Times, the initiative has so far comprised a distributed denial of service attack on trumptowerny.com that lasted for several hours Thursday night.

Meanwhile, the group’s strange, multi-pronged approach to the vigilante war on terror continues apace. Anonymous has declared today its “Anti-ISIS Day of Rage,” urging people to troll ISIS using the hashtag #Daeshbags, a reference to Daesh, the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State.

Of course, we’re pretty sure ISIS can handle some meme-ified taunting online. But we’re also pretty sure this isn’t the only trick Anonymous has up its sleeve, whether its target is a caliphate or the leader in the GOP polls.
