Anonymous hits Westboro Baptist Church over Sandy Hook picket plans

I’m beginning to think Anonymous is not such a bad group after all.  Especially in this instance and thwarting Karl Rove’s alleged voting irregularities via his GOTV operation…

The ever-hateful Westboro Baptist Church has not failed to deliver in the wake of the Newtown school massacre. The Church, notorious for picketing the funerals of fallen troops with “God Hates Fags” placards, announced Saturday that they would picket Sandy Hook elementary school, where 20 children and six adults were shot dead Friday.  Tweets from the Phelps family suggest they believe the horrors in Connecticut are a punishment from God for gay marriage.

Hacker collective Anonymous was swift to respond, releasing private information of  Westboro members including email addresses, phone numbers and home addresses. This video, decrying the church for spreading “seeds of hatred” was also released. It warns, “We will destroy you. We are coming.”

  1. Well, remember, even the KKK put up a notice on their web site saying that they don’t support Westboro Baptist. Even the people I would have listed as the most despicable have standards.

    I’m no big fan of Anonymous, and not a fan of harassing people at home over their opinions … but Westboro has crossed every line of civilized, decent, or even human behavior. It’s possible that I should repent of it, but I might have expressed to my wife a sentiment involving the expression “fiery car crash” about Westboro’s travel plans …
