Quoted: Anonymous calls for ‘total war’ against Donald Trump

“This is a call to arms. This is a call to the freedom fighters, to the forgotten, to the censored, to our fellow activists throughout the world.”

Anonymous, in a new video uploaded to YouTube this month, says it’s reviving an effort to go after Donald Trump, the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination. In December, the hacking collective announced that it took down the Trump Tower New York website with a denial-of-service attack, slamming Trump for his statements about banning Muslims from entering the United States.

Now, an Anonymous member wearing the group’s trademark Guy Fawkes mask says “what we see is deeply disturbing”:

The person in the video continues: “We need you to shut down his websites, research and expose what he doesn’t want the public to know. We need you to dismantle his campaign and sabotage his brand. We are encouraging every able person with a computer watching this video to participate in this operation.”

The video, like certain anti-Trump ads now making the rounds, includes clips of Trump spouting insults and making disparaging remarks against various groups, such as Mexicans and women.

Anonymous is calling for action on April 1, in the form of shutting down trumpchicago.com. The group also has a Ghostbin page containing information about other Trump websites that it wants people to target.

In the past, Anonymous — a self-described hive of hacktivists whose mascot of choice is famed English revolutionary Fawkes — has attacked websites and/or exposed the personal information of governments, corporations, individuals. It has also declared war on groups such as the KKK and ISIS.

Here’s the new video:
