Certainly before Jeb (!).

 

m I shirking my duty in the War Of Civilizations if I feel that Anonymous can do more to fck up Daesh’s shit than can any of the plans already advanced by any of the Republican contenders?​

According to the same Twitter account, the group began taking down websites associated with ISIS this morning. Anonymous also retweeted a link to the following message from the hacktivist group Binary Sec: “We as a collective will bring an end to your reign of terror. We will no longer turn a blind eye to your cruel and inhumane acts of terrorism towards all other religions that are not Islam. We’ve watched you behead innocent people, kidnap and murder children, and then launch terrorist attacks in France. This will NOT BE TOLERATED ANY LONGER. We here at BinarySec live for the sole purpose of bringing down All ISIS Propaganda ONE website and/or person at a time. ISIS… Your Jihad is coming to an abrupt end. We here at BinarySec will be one of the driving forces to your end and that’s a promise. ISIS… The War Is On.” This is not the first time that Anonymous has taken on ISIS. Foreign Policy Magazine reports that the conflict between hackers that identify with Anonymous and ISIS has waged online for more than a year. A tipping point that forced many hackers to join the cause was the attacks on the Charlie Hebdo newspaper and kosher market in Paris earlier this year.

I certainly have more faith in them actually to do something constructive than I do in either Jeb (!) or, say, Gretchen Carlson. ‘
