Meh. Doesn’t surprise me…
Anonymous, the hacktivist organization whose mission is to bring social justice to who they deem the bad guys, is back in the news front. The group is very loosely organized and when on video, they cover their faces with Guy Fawkes masks a la V for Vendetta and use robot voices. Since 2003 they’ve gone after Scientology, police in Ferguson, various hate groups, and have raised awareness for homelessness. Most recently they were noted for declaring war on Donald Trump, releasing his personal information to the public.
What are they doing now? Fighting Texas senator Ted Cruz. You’d think they’d hate him just for being him, but now they’ve got some real dirt on him. Check out #OPCruz on Twitter for their fight against Ted Cruz.
“We are Anonymous. We are legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us.”
What’s wrong with Cruz?
Presidential hopeful Ted Cruz makes inflammatory comments like, “We need a Commander-in-Chief who will prioritize U.S. national security interests. That starts by calling the enemy — radical Islamic terrorism — by its name, defeating ISIS, rebuilding the military, and securing the border. Border security is national security. And on day one, I will rip to shreds the catastrophic Iran deal.”
He is also noted for being pro-gun, pro church and state, anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage, and well, isn’t a friend to feminists or anyone who wants our great country to see progress and equality.
Cruz is “a Christian first, an American second.” His wife has stated that she believes Ted can show America the “face of God” as president.
Anonymous has had it’s hits and misses. Since are somewhat anarchist in their membership, there’s a few bad eggs in the bunch that release information that other members don’t want to, like releasing the personal information of a good cop in Ferguson, Missouri who ended up getting death threats because of the mistake. If what they have on Ted Cruz is true, it would devastate his entire presidential platform as well as his personal life.
