Anonymous have released another of their trademark videos, addressing President-elect Donald Trump yet again. The hacktivist group is known for making waves in social, cultural, and political arenas. This time, they issue a warning to the newly-elected businessman-turned-president and other world leaders. They also address the citizens of the world, in light of the current environment. Check out the video here:
The dramatic introduction sets the tone for the address. We see Ronald Reagan speaking, followed by a montage of recent terrorist attacks. Kudos to Anonymous for the production value. Then, they continue by addressing Trump and world leaders directly:
“How many more wars? How many more people have to die? Enough is enough, these strategic war games need to cease!”
Anonymous then warn of the risk of a third world war, and petition “every peace-seeker” to “…stand united and not allow ourselves to be used as pawns in a never-ending game of lies and adversity.” The video ends with another montage, after they appropriate Trump’s campaign slogan: “Make America Great Again.” This latest message has a relatively more positive tone than the warning videos we are used to seeing from the group.
This isn’t the first time Anonymous have addressed Trump. They controversially released the election winner’s social security and cell phone numbers earlier this year, after declaring war on him. To reiterate our previous disclaimer, DHTG does not condone the illegal use of anyone’s personal information. So, please keep that in mind.
Trump is not the only presidential candidate whom Anonymous have targeted. They have had Hillary Clinton in their sights as well. The group is famously objective in who they take down. For example, ISIS and the KKK are targets as well.
As usual, Anonymous got our attention with this latest video. We will see if they take further steps against Trump, and if they will continue to make pleas for world unity. Stay tuned.
