Mark Your Calendars Because Anonymous Is Planning An ‘Anti-ISIS Day’ Full Of Trolling Later This Month
Next week the hacker collective Anonymous is planning a balls-to-the-walls day of trolling, something that’s been called ‘Anti-ISIS Day’, which seems like a bit of a misnomer given that here in America EVERY DAY is Anti-ISIS Day. What’s casually being referred to as the ‘Day of Rage’ will take place on Friday, December 11th, and Anonymous will be waging all out cyber warfare against Daesh.
In a document currently circulating on an Anonymous communications website, hacktivists have called for a “day of rage” against ISIS on December 11.
“You may be wondering why we are “trolling” ISIS and planning all these demonstrations,” an Anonymous supporter wrote.
“To understand that you must first see how Isis works.
“They thrive off fear and hope that by their actions they can silence all of us and get us to just lay low and hide in fear.
“We will show them that we are not afraid, we will not just hide in our fear, we are the majority and with our strength in numbers we can make a real difference.
“We will mock them for the idiots they are.”
Anonymous supporters have also been urged to identify extremists on social media and then send them “photos of goats with captions talking about their wives”.
On the “day of rage”, Anonymous supporters have also been asked to barrage extremist social media accounts with anti-ISIS propaganda and “openly” criticize extremists.
24 hours sharing photos of Daesh extremists with offensive captions? This sounds like a job I was built for. If you follow my daily picture round up here on BroBible you probably know that I specialize in finding offensive photos, so I’m very much looking forward to December 11th.
There has been some speculation that Anonymous’ cyber war against Daesh is causing some setbacks within our intelligence communities, because the same sites Anonymous is taking down are the same sites the DOD, NSA, and CIA scour for signals. For what it’s worth I think that taking Daesh’s websites down and stamping them out on social media entirely is one of the most effective courses of action we can take in this particular battle during the War on Terror. Daesh prides themselves on being able to recruit and self-promote via social media, so Anonymous should be given free reign to cripple them.
Anyways, I expected as soon as Daesh hears about this Day of Rage they’ll respond with another video of guys kicking each other in the nuts.
