Yesterday, a video posted by Anonymous announced that the hacktivist entity has declared “total war” on Donald Trump, the possibly computer-semiliterate Republican front runner. This is the shadowy cyberactivists’ latest vow to annihilate a formidable enemy—an expanding list of foes that includes terrorist groups, multinational corporations, several countries, and an Australian bowhunter who was killing cats.

So far, the vast majority of Anonymous’ targets have survived the much-hyped digital onslaught. As The Hill notes, the newest opening of hostilities with Trump follows a similar declaration last year that “never made much of an impact.” 

Here are more than 40 targets that Anonymous members—and eager headline writers—have claimed it has “declared war on”:

The Ku Klux Klan

ISIS

Syrian government websites

Terrorist websites

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood

Jihad

The US government

The UK government

Police

Cincinnati police

Hong Kong police

Thai police

The Thai junta

Turkey

North Korea

Saudi Arabia

Singapore

Japan

Israel

The Cambodian government

Corruption and poverty in Nigeria

Orlando

Congress

Capitalism

Religion

Scientology

The Westboro Baptist Church

The family court of Australia

Wikileaks

Gov. Rick Snyder

Facebook

Sony

The Recording Industry Association of America

Marijuana prohibition

Pedophilia

A “rape town”

A “revenge porn” site founder

A “cat killer”

The Lizard Squad Hacker Team

Louis Vuitton

Kanye West

 

 

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
