KONFRONTASI - Anonymous has declared “total war” on GOP front runner Donald Trump, vowing to “dismantle” his campaign over his hateful language.
According to a video uploaded by the hacking collective on YouTube, the so-called OpTrump aims to “expose what he doesn’t want the public to know.”
Over the past several months, the US tycoon has time and time again drawn fire for offensive statements against Muslims, migrants, Hispanics and other minority groups in America.

“We have been watching you for a long time and what we’ve seen is deeply disturbing. You don’t stand for anything but your personal greed and power,” said the hooded person wearing a Guy Fawkes mask in the video. “This is a declaration of total war. OperationTrump engaged.”
The group urged people to join the campaign against Trump, which would include taking down one of Trump’s property websites for Chicago (trumpchicago.com) on April 1, arguing “you do not need to know how to hack to support this operation.”
“This is a call to arms. Shut down his websites, research and expose what he doesn’t want the public to know. We need you to dismantle his campaign and sabotage his brand.”
This is not the first time Anonymous is attacking Trump. Late last year, the group took down the website of New York’s Trump Tower over the Republican candidate’s proposal for a complete ban on Muslims entering the United State.
“Your inconsistent and hateful campaign has not only shocked the United States of America — you have shocked the entire planet with your appalling actions and ideas. This is a call to arms,” said the masked person.[ptv]
