Release: Operation Shut Down Westboro Baptist Church
by John Anthony Robles II

The so called Westboro Baptist Church is not actually a church at all.
Rather, it is a small but well funded and highly organized hate group.
It's core leadership and membership consists of a single family, the Phelps.
They specialize in picketing funerals and spewing there unique and
disgusting brand of hate, disturbing grieving family members and the public
in their time of loss. Over the past approximately five years, Anonymous has
confronted them several times, both online and on the ground
- over their announced plan to picket certain funerals. In each and every
case our combined cyber and ground operations were enough to cause the WBC
to cancel their plans to picket entirely. In addition, these Anonymous
campaigns have decimated the membership ranks of the Westboro Baptist
Church, and cost them tens of thousands of dollars in damages to their cyber
infrastructure. But this can never be taken for granted. And so when the
Westboro Baptist Church recently announced their plans to picket at least
some of the upcoming funerals in South Carolina for the "Charleston 9",
Anonymous once again moved into action.
Over the last several confrontations between Anonymous and the Westboro
Baptist Church, we have developed a fairly refined strategy. Our approach
will be two pronged. The WBC maintains a rather large cyber infrastructure,
and we will destroy this entirely by various means. On the ground, Anonymous
will deploy operatives who will initiate our Standard Operating Procedure
for dealing with funeral pickets by the Westboro Baptist Church.
SOP For Confronting WBC On The Ground -
This sustained campaign against the Westboro Baptist Church will continue
until all the funerals in Charleston, South Carolina are finished.
Anonymous calls upon all Anons, allied crews, hacktivists - and supporters
worldwide to join with us in attacking every known cyber asset of the WBC.
Details on the targets can be found on the Op website. Tweet your successes
with the hahstag #OpShutDownWBC and mention the primary Op Twitter account
@OpFerguson so we can track the damage done to these morons.
Anons and supporters who live in South Carolina, or who are planning on
traveling there for the funerals - we encourage you to prepare to utilize
our SOP For Confronting WBC On The Ground linked above. Network together,
rehearse scenarios with the SOP. While it is doubtful these idiots will show
up, it is critical that Anonymous have a well prepared presence on the
ground in Charleston, SC.
To the grieving people of Charleston, South Carolina: we ask that you put
these hateful people from your mind entirely. Anonymous has this for you.
We know how to deal with these animals, and we will do so. Forget them.
Let us handle this for you as our gift of condolence for your unspeakable
Finally, to the members of the Westboro Baptist Church: We are coming for
you. We will defeat you just as we always have. Your best bet is to stop
this foolishness at once. We know you will not, so you can fucking....
