    Anonymous ‘hacktivists’ to target Westboro Baptist Church’s anticipated Charleston victim funeral pickets

    Anonymous activists, shown in a file photo demonstrating against government corruption in the Philippines in 2013, plan to encircle any Westboro Baptist Church protesters who show up for the funerals of Charleston victims with two perimeters, the group said Monday.
    Self-styled ‘hacktivist’ group Anonymous plans to target the Westboro Baptist Church both in person and online if the church’s members picket the funerals of Charleston shooting victims this week, the hackers announced Monday.

    Anonymous responded to a series of tweets from the anti-gay Topeka, Kan. church promising its signature funeral protests by pledging to renew its five-year campaign against Westboro. The hacktivists will implement a “two pronged” strategy, they said in tweets and web pronouncements on opshutdownwbc.cf on Monday.

    “The WBC maintains a rather large cyber infrastructure, and we will destroy this entirely by various means,” Anonymous said on the website devoted to its actions against WBC. “On the ground, Anonymous will deploy operatives who will initiate our standard operating procedure for dealing with funeral pickets by the Westboro Baptist Church.”

    A Westboro Baptist Church member holds up a sign at a protest in Brooklyn. The church tweeted a call to conduct its trademark hellfire and brimstone funeral picket outside planned memorials for victims of the recent shooting in Charleston, S.C.
    Westboro, which the Southern Poverty Law Center refers to as “arguably the most obnoxious and rabid hate group in America,” posted a tweet with a “#GodSentTheShooter” tagline just as the country was learning of the attack Thursday morning. The tweet referred to the mass murder at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church as “God’s judgement” and another one linked the shooting to the late pastor and state Sen. Clementa Pinckney’s support for Hillary Clinton.

    “Blood of #CharlestonShooting dead is on @HillaryClinton's hands,” Fred Phelps’ church tweeted. “Get some signs and picket the funerals!”

    Westboro protesters, shown in 2011 holding an anti-Anonymous sign, have been known for years for demonstrating against the country's purported support for LGBT people almost anywhere tragedy strikes
    Officials at Westboro didn’t immediately respond to a request for a reaction to Anonymous’ plans Monday night. But church member Shirley Phelps-Roper confronted the group directly when she and a member of Anonymous appeared on the talk show “The David Pakman Show” during its first hack against the church in 2011.

    “You’re all a bunch of criminals and thugs, and you’re disobedient in the extreme, and you don’t obey God,” Phelps-Roper said at the time. “And you’re all facing imminent destruction.”


    Anonymous didn’t offer details on its latest online assault, but the group claims to have “decimated” Westboro’s membership and cost the group “tens of thousands of dollars” in previous actions. The hackers posted personal information of Westboro congregants in 2012 after the church pledged to take its hellfire and brimstone demonstrations to Sandy Hook Elementary School in the wake of the killing spree that left 20 children and six adults dead.

    But Anonymous did outline its procedure for foiling any appearances by Westboro members at memorial services planned for victims of the mass killing. Masked and silent demonstrators plan to track Westboro members’ locations and set up nonviolent perimeters around any Westboro picketers at the ceremonies scheduled for this week.

    Anonymous' instructions for its protesters in Charleston call for activists to remain masked and silent at all times. This file photo shows activists demonstrating in support of Julian Assange of Wikileaks.
    “The goal is to contain these morons, and to block their hateful message in such a way as they can not be seen by those in the funeral procession or at the venue,” the group's instructions read.

    A spokesman for Anonymous, which also threatened to derail police data if any officers hurt protesters in Ferguson, Mo. in August, told the Daily News in an email that the organization is watching Westboro “like a hawk.”


    The spokesman added. “My friend you have not seen anything yet. We have already collected a huge trove of data, we just need to sort through it. And we only officially began this Op today. Buckle up, follow the Twitter — we have some truly juicy stuff in the works.”

    Isn't that "church" basically made up of one crazy family looking for cameras?

    It's remarkable how easy it is to influence people.

    If anyone disturbs the memorial to any of these victims they deserve the full wrath of the depraviry human violence and that also goes any politican that tries to coop it for their benefactor the NRA
    I still dont understand how the gunmans relatives are completely not gone from the planet. Their homes should be razed

    The Westboro Baptist church just shows you how bogus the religous freedom arguement is.
    Any fuckface can call themselves a church. Its really funny you hear these idiots wanting to protect the sanctity of marriage, their religous freedom or their rights to bear arms, like they are part of some sancimonios fight when they are really just base immoral cowardly pedophiles with no respect for God or human life

    I think its less government and more people that benefit from chaos and internal fighting like the faggots in the teaparty

    No way a effeminate beaner like a Ted Cruz even makes it to midlevel management of a women's dress shop or a catholic school without scaring the Walmart set and the men that are run by their crazy cant-get-ina-country-club wives so we have to be active in the mega fake evangelical church

    So if someone says something you don't like, you want them to be beaten and murdered?


    Nice. You must be a liberal.

    So you want the guy's family killed and you plan to murder all of them..........because a relative murdered one of yours.

    That makes a lot of sense. No, really. It's brilliant.

    And you call me the Muslim?

    You claim to be "Christian"? I don't remember hearing that on any Sunday I was in church.

    Yeah i have a lot of anger about this
    And how its just being tolerated
    The WBBC just was a final straw
    But really christians have to be held up to the same agrument as Muslims when it comes to handling internally extremist and secs like WBBC

    Listen I like you, youre one of my all time favorite posters. I need to avoid this subject because it makes me very very angry

    Our patience is awful thin down here given all the shit we've had to deal with over the past few weeks. The shootings, of course. The brutal heat. The bodies popping up everywhere. The meth epidemic. All that. There is a going to be a guaranteed violent reaction to these people. Then we'll have to hear the surviving members blubbering in court about how they just wanted to express their freedom of speech. Then the suing begins. My advice? If anyone here decides to lash out? Make sure you get'em all. No one's gonna give a shit.

    It's already 91 degrees here at 10:30 in the morning. All things considered, Westboro might want to reconsider the wisdom of how they choose to express their religious freedom later on this week in SC.

    at least WBC admits who they are and what they are about. i have news for you orthodox jews feel the same way as WBC except that they also think goyim are subhuman, and non-orthodox jews (and their kids for all generations) are cursed to be the worst evil sinners because the mom didnt go in the mikveh before she got pregnant. at least WBC puts all their ridiculous nonsense out front

    They are honest, that's for sure. But the cruelty they must possess to add to a family's burden when they are burying a loved one is staggering.
