At this point, the people who consider themselves “Anons” need to reach their social-activism-puberty and start doing something helpful with their time and energy. While releasing “dox” (personal documentation online) of Donald Trump’s social security number, et cetera, is hilarious–it’s also an incredible waste of time, and accomplishes literally nothing except adding fuel to the fire of the presidential race.
Furthermore, Donald Trump is not the only obscene candidate in this race. While one could argue that most are obscene and detestable candidates, nearly all rational men and women can agree that Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton are part of the same establishment and are equally terrible in different ways. Even Sanders seems completely undeserving of American support.
If Anonymous was really about any form of social activism, wouldn’t they be doing something to, say, actually enlighten the public about their presidential candidates?
Instead of releasing Donald Trump’s social security number, why not release some interesting, hidden information related to his campaign or something similar to this? Trump is certainly not fit to be president, but none of them are really, and so what exactly is Anonymous trying to accomplish here?
Lastly, while it should be self-evident, this is clearly a direct violation of the law on Anon’s part. Some laws are, of course, made to be broken (and these candidates have certainly broken many laws themselves). However, breaking the law in this case to release dox on Trump comes across much more like a temper tantrum than an “operation” that Anonymous should be proud of. They have also gone out of their way to equate Trump to Hitler and the Third Reich, by often putting a Hitler moustache on Trump, and referring to themselves as the “White Rose,” which was a primary resistance movement against the Nazis in Germany.
Hey Anonymous: conceited much?
