This could get interesting if it is real… Attacking Trump’s Chicago Hotel though is rather pointless. Would think they would do far better going after making the licensing of the Trump name/brand a negative proposition, going after his state operations and mailing lists, and gathering documentation on his shady, and possibly illegal business dealings.
Can the hacker group take him down?
Hacker group Anonymous is pledging once again to take on Donald Trump.
“Dear Donald Trump, we have been watching you for a long time, and what we see is deeply disturbing,” an Anonymous representative said in a video posted to YouTube earlier this month.
The statement is followed by a series of well-known clips showing the Republican frontrunner acting like a buffoon: insulting Fox host Megyn Kelly, mocking a reporter with a disability, alluding to how sexy his own daughter is, et cetera.
Anonymous follows that with a “call to arms” inviting anyone with a computer to spread the word and participate in “Operation Trump,” now labeled “#OpTrump.” The video ends with a message inviting “everyone to target” trumpchicago.com, a website for the candidate’s luxury hotel, on April 1.
The video is hosted on a different YouTube channel than some previous releases from Anonymous — so it’s difficult to say how “official” the clip is. That said, a well-known Anonymous account on Twitter — @YourAnonNews — has regularly tweetedanti-Trump messages since the clip was posted.
“Your inconsistent and hateful campaign has not only shocked the United States of America — you have shocked the entire planet with your appalling actions and ideals,” the new video says. “You say what your current audience wants to hear, but in reality you don’t stand for anything except for your personal greed and power. This is a call to arms.”
Anonymous previously declared war on Trump in December. It seems not to have slowed his momentum, but maybe second time’s the charm?
