    In the wake of the tragedy in Newtown, CT, the Westboro Baptist Church announced they would be picketing the school and funeral services to "praise God for the glory of his work in executing his judgement"...

    Anonymous has a message for them.



    Slacker vigilantes, certainly, but at least with a decent cause this time...


    Edit:
    Huh... The video has been removed...

    I don't think its really about "what happend." It's about what these people plan to do.

    Yes, there are, though it's best not to waste our breath on such lowly trash.

    One guy makes a video and he speaks for everyone? (which is who? a group of people that dont exist, random people on 4chan who randomly wants to attempt to start shit)

    4chan usually laughs at tragedies shootings/bombings/killings/9'11/etc. The guy is doing it for views and publicity

    Not defending anyone but the whole anon vindication bullshit is really old.

    It's not likes someone or a group of people calling themselves "Anonymous" hasn't done this to the WBC before.

    If a DDoS attack doesn't cure them of their homophobia nothing will!

    WBC is sickening, they dare to call themselves members of the human race, they seem to lack the compassion and sympathy required to qualify. But Anon?

    What are they going to do?

    No shit. Then again, if it's an actual Anonymous plan and not one of those "LOLOL LOOK WE CAN BE BIG TOO! WE CAUSE DDOS", then it'd be interesting to see how this pans out. Curious as to what they plan to do. Maybe instead of hacking, perhaps show up wherever they go in the Guy Faux masks?

    Anyways, I thought the WBC was a satire group, or am I thinking of the wrong thing?

    Great so now anonymous is exploiting a tragedy for publicity What a bunch of scumbags. Is anyone afraid of anonymous? What are they going to do, take down the WBC home page for a few hours? I'm sure that has WBC shaking in their boots.

    You're probably thinking of the Landover Baptist Church. The WBC are a very real hate group masquerading as a religious organisation.

    Guys, do remember: although Anonymous tends to be represented by script kiddies that do nothing but DDoS attacks, there are times they've supposedly taken it a step further. The name Anonymous is naught but a cover for anybody that wants to use it. It can imply that they're backed by thousands, and it can imply that they're backed by near nobody. It can imply that they really know what they're doing, or it can imply that they're script kiddies. It can imply that their causes will be noble, and it implies that their causes could be trash.

    It's nothing but a name. Try not to read into that so much as what they could do based on whoever may be backing this specific section of Anonymous.

    Oh, and for as the actual topic, it doesn't matter much. Saying that either group is abusing the tragedy for publicity doesn't really matter, as politicians were using it day one for publicity so that they could push their personal agendas. It isn't like anybody is really right, but I think we can all agree that WBC is wrong.

    I have to say that I stand with the WBC's right of free speech. Anonymous are a bunch of little fascists by trying to trample the rights of others for a cause they deem worthy.In a free society you can counter protest but you don't threaten someone else's civil liberties no matter how much you disagree with them.

    If the "cause" of celebrating the murders of children is worthy to them, they should be classified as terrorists and have them removed from Earth. Oh wait, calling someone a terrorist implies being a human.

    Yeah, we should just put them somewhere, Venus is good.

    Anon aren't fascists, just a bunch of kids at one time, or something greater another time.

    Screw Anonymous, this is the real News!

    I love the logic - the all-loving God that we know from the gospel (of course I mean the New Testament God - we're talkin' about Christianity here) exacts revenge (on whom?) by influencing a 20-year old guy to kill (Thou shall not kill) his mother (Honour thy father and thy mother, innit?) and a bunch of kids who did nothing wrong. That's brilliant, that's Logic Gold right there!

    Well...they did post a fairly long list of members including names, addresses, emails, and home phone numbers along with the video... A tiny bit more than just a DDoS on a website.

    Well Anonymous is good at the "throw stinky butter" approach to "protesting".

    However Westboro does deserve to get stinky butter thrown at them.
