I can’t help but harbor a certain admiration for these Anonymous folks. They came to fame when they launched a global effort to expose Scientology and haven’t stopped since. One righteous cause to another, they are a disorganized yet organized effort for various purposes.
In this latest video, they go after Donald Trump. This should be no big surprise, especially to him. Something tells me he simply discounted them as “basement people” and in doing so drastically underestimated them.
At the end of the video, links are referenced below it that take the viewer to information revealing Donald Trump’s social security and cell phone numbers. He’ll obviously change the cell number, but he’ll certainly be inconvenienced to change the social (which he will be able to do, as can anyone who must present just cause in court).
They are of course careful to stay it is for information purposes only and the viewer is responsible for any action taken with it.
The last two sentences of the video sum it up – especially the last one, which seems obvious.
We are Anonymous. We do not forgive. We do not forget.
Donald Trump, you should have expected us.
That last line is usually just “Expect us”, but they changed it a touch here to drive it home.
I would never encourage the theft and dissemination of someone’s personal information, but I would be lying if I said I did not get some vicarious pleasure from this.
