Anonymous isn't playing around — the cyber war is on.
Earlier in the week, the hacktivist group and it's supporters rallied together around the hashtag "#OpTrump," which soon turned into "#OpWhiteRose" — a clever reference to the German resistance movement against Hitler's Third Reich.
Now they really have something to show for their efforts; according to their latest video, they have just leaked Trump's social security number as well as other personal information.
Check out their latest video below:
While sharing and leaking someone's personal information is, without question, wrong, it's hard to deny that this feels a little bit like justice.
Hacktivist collective Anonymous has officially declared cyberwar against misogynistic bigot Donald Trump by targeting his presidential campaign, his brand, and his business ventures.
According to the video uploaded by the hacktivist group, a timeline has been put in place to ensure the upmost destruction; April 1 will mark the take down for TrumpChicago.com, and this video is an attempt to garner as much aide in that endeavor as possible.
“Dear Donald Trump,” a masked member of the Anonymous group begins, “We have been watching you for a long time and what we see is deeply disturbing.”
A horrific montage of all the horrible things Trump has said over the last decade is then shown, evoking ire in just about anyone with a sense of justice, morality, or intellect.
In the understatement of the year, the hacktivist goes on to say, “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 ideas.”
“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.”
"This is a call to protect our future, our freedom and our very way of life," the Anonymous member continues. He then explains that they intent to “shut down his websites, research and expose what he doesn’t want the public to know,” but also to “dismantle his campaign and sabotage his brand.”
This isn’t the first time that Anonymous has declared war one some big-time figure that needed to be taken down. Previously, Anonymous has declared war on ISIS, effectively shutting down multiple Twitter accounts that were used as recruitment tools for the terrorist group.
This cyberwar, however, seems to have gotten even more people up in arms. In a show of support, many have taken to Twitter using the hashtag #OpTrump along with their reactions of the videos:
Never have I had more admiration for hacktivists. Bring.Him.Down. I'm anxious to hear about all of this. #optrump— RickJamesWife (@RickJameswife) March 15, 2016
