In an apparent response to Westboro Baptist Church's stated intent to picket the funerals in Newtown, CT. Hactivist group Anonymous has posted what has to be one of the most daring internet assault plans in recent history. They aren't just taking down the WBC's websites, they've actually posted personal contact information on their members. Data includes address, phone numbers, email addresses, etc. They didn't stop there either, they've also gone after twitter feeds and posted a Whitehouse petition requesting revocation of the WBC's tax exempt status.
Additionally their warning this time is not only stark but surprisingly aggressive. I've been watching Anonymous for some time, but this is the first time I've ever seen them make such an explicit and comprehensive threat. This time they are not merely threatening to take down websites, this time they state:
We will render you obsolete. We will destroy you. We are coming.
I mean, it doesn't really get much more explicit than that now does it? In addition to the petition to revoke WBC's tax exempt status, they've also posted a petition to recognize WBC as a hate group. This one has already garnered over 110,000 signatures, pretty much guaranteeing a presidential response.
