Ordering Trump to resign by Feb. 28:

Anonymous - Operation Resistance Engaged: Trump Told to Resign by Feb. 28

Also claiming to have not supported Hillary Clinton either, and not advocating for Democrats to be installed as replacement.

Will we see some severe violent stuff on March 1 if Trump doesn't resign?

So you're saying that you don't think anonymous has sufficient power?

That doesn't seem like Real Anonymous, since Real Anonymous actually has something to say against these kinds of protests:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFEvMUb04yc

6:24: "Those who protested the racist and xenophobic Trump, but not Obama or Clinton, are nothing more than disingenuous frauds and amoral cowards."

Also if you choose 30 minutes to spare, a message about Fake Anon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jKpwLcGEmc

Did you watch the video I posted? I have no idea if they are the real Anonymous or not, but they expressed no interest in protesting with the intention of replacing with a specific party, they just made the claim that Trump is unacceptable.

That sounds like scripture.

Those who hath protested the racist and xenophobic Trump, but not the Obama or the Clinton, will be cast out by the Lord as craven pretenders.

Not without actual operators (like lulzsec) driving the van.

I wonder if Anonymous has some sort of incriminating video like the alleged golden shower video. That would certainly make things... Interesting.

If they are as great as they want people to think and the videos exist, they ought to have them right?
Even if they do, Trump will say the video is fake and his idiot fans will believe him. So will CTP.

What they might actually have is his tax returns.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

Anonymous talked a lot of sh*t about what they were going to do during the Ferguson protests. And all that came to naught. So ...

Its spotty because you never know if its really them or not. The perils of being easy to impersonate. Like a network of deliberately unconnected terrorist cells.

It's generally easy to tell the difference between Anonymous and /pol/.

Anonymous thinks they're Robin Hood, /pol/ thinks they're the Fourth Reich.

I was following several Twitter feeds that purported to be Anonymous during the Ferguson protests. About the only thing I saw them do was out the wrong Darren Wilson and a DDoS attack that took down the Ferguson municipal website.

I just wanted to be sure what was being discussed is separate from the "chimp-out" shit, which was definitely /pol/.

Hello, the 90s called and they want their social justice group back. Anony-moose hasn't been influential in over a decade.
