Trump faces undemocratic challenge from hacktivist group Anonymous

Brian LilleyArchive

Whatever you think of him, Trump has been working hard to become the Republican nominee through the democratic process. 

Now, the activist hacker group Anonymous is organizing an attempt to launch a cyber-attack against Donald Trump.

I explain why this is all so troubling and the odd alliance this threat has led to as those who also believe in the democratic process, step in to help.

Politics does make strange bedfellows.

The left always do the opposite of what they say! And they use language the same way. They take a word and distort the meaning to confuse others. Honestly, I can’t stand even talking to anyone liberal anymore. They are a bunch of spoilt brats who think the world owes them something for nothing.

There is no democracy with lefties, only theocracy!

I saw a bunch of Guy Fawkes wearing protesters in front of Calgary’s city hall last summer. I asked one of them, in passing, why they wanted to impose a Catholic theocracy on Canada. I was met with a blank stare. I went on “That’s what Guy Fawkes wanted when he began his gunpowder plot. That’s his face you’re wearing.”

“Dude, it’s from a comic book.” was the response he gave me.

Lefties do not believe in democracy – unless it is THEIR democracy.

Otherwise they would let the entire procedure unfold as it was supposed to …..

Peter Netterville. Well said.

What they’re proposing is Public Mischief. Since Trump is surrounded by the Secret Service, their protection should extend to cyberspace. They should be able to track where this attack is coming from, and charge them!!

Anonymous is employing the standard book of socialists tactics, shut up those you do not like or agree with.

Free speech and democracy are not beliefs of the socialists.

Remember how ass-f’ed-nous was going to to disclose an anti-conservative a day minute? Didn’t happen. ISIS? Nope. Turkey now? Not likely. Russia or China? You have got to be kidding. Trump? Election guaranteed.

I still love the Guy Fawkes masks these clowns use. The reactionary criminal against progress. So what do we call these clowns using clown masks? FACISTS, in the real term.
