Anonymous Targets Westboro Baptist Church After Newtown Vigil Protest Threat (Video)

Members of the hacktivist group Anonymous have targeted the Westboro Baptist Church after the hate-mongering, quasi-religious group announced plans to protest a Sunday night vigil in remembrance of the Sandy Hook shooting victims, 20 of whom were just 6 and 7 years old.

On Saturday, Westboro Baptist Church spokesperson Shirley Phelps-Roper tweeted that the group would be protesting the vigil in Newtown, Conn., to "sing praise to God for the glory of his work in executing his judgment."

Anonymous apparently vowed retaliation as part of #OpWestBor in a video posted to Vimeo under the handle KY Anonymous. "We will not allow you to corrupt the minds of America with your seeds of hatred," says the voice-over in the video. "We will not allow you to inspire aggression to the social factions which you deem inferior. We will render you obsolete. We will destroy you. We are coming."

On Sunday, Anonymous posted to Pastebin a list of data that it claimed belonged to Westboro members. The data included names, street addresses, phone numbers and email addresses, according to CNET.

The move was announced on @YourAnonNews, the collective's main mouthpiece on Twitter.

6. Haven't fallen for Anonymous yet.

 

But if something happens with WBC and they no longer exist in a year from now, I'll be a believer!

8. You too can help.

There are two petitions up at whitehouse.gov. One requests that WBC be legally recognized as a hate group.

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/legally-recognize-westboro-baptist-church-hate-group/DYf3pH2d

The other requests that the IRS examine WBC's tax-exempt status, since they seem to spend much more time sueing, picketing, and protesting and now doing much in the way of 'religion'.

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/investigate-irs-tax-exempt-status-westboro-baptist-church/YrKbHYtV

Note, last time I checked, the IRS/Tax-Exempt petition had 47.6K Sigs
and the hate group petition had almost 200K.

10. For those that watch the whole video

turn your speakers/headphones down about 10-15 seconds before the end. It extremely annoying noise.

So-o, when is Anon. going after the NRA and distribute their hacked bank accounts to various gun-control groups and legislators?

11. The Westboro Baptist Cult is a national shame and I hope Anonymous exorcises these demons from our

land completely and forever.
