One of the largest Anonymous Twitter accounts released a video early on Tuesday morning threatening white supremacists and Nazis in retaliation to events in Charlottesville.
In what they call a video press release response to Saturday’s events titled “We Are Angry”, The Anon Journal said it was clear US President Donald Trump’s allegiances “were with the likes of Steve Bannon, David Duke and Richard Spencer” and made it clear they will avenge the violence of white supremacists and Nazis with “blood”.
Since US citizen Heather Heyer was struck and killed by a car in an act of domestic terrorism in Charlottesville on Saturday, Anonymous has launched an “Operation Domestic Terrorism” with the aim of revealing the location of aggressors to police.
The Anon Journal stated that location efforts will continue, saying “there are good Americans in need of jobs and it would be ashamed for not cease to be occupying them.”
In this video, they also announce “#DayToDenounce”, calling for people on Aug 18 to take down Confederate statues that remain standing in the United States. Several statues have already been smashed by protesters in major cities.
The loose, unofficial organization also threatened Westboro Baptist Church, saying “if you attempt to show up to Heather [Heyer’s] funeral it will be your last.”
“Our campaign will not stop until your ideology of hate is dead and buried forever. You have all incurred our wrath now. Our justice will be swift and it will be righteous.”
Anonymous then ended the video with a chilling “you should have expected us.”
More details to follow.
