Anonymous Hacks Westboro Baptist During Live Interview

Anonymous said it was gonna hack the Westboro Baptist Church. Westboro said bring it on. But then Anonymous appeared to backtrack off its threat. That was just a ruse, apparently, because while Westboro’s Shirley Phelps Roper was in the middle of a live interview with The David Pakman Show (at around the 8:00 mark), Anonymous decided “PERFECT! LET’S DO THIS SHIZNIT,” and [email protected] the church’s website, leaving this:

Now allow Stephen Colbert explain what happens when you cross this group of hacktivists. Like Bank of America’s security firm HBGary stupidly tried.

    There was no “Ruse” the group seems to be saying that the initical claim by Westborough that the group was threatening them was a phony attempt to get publicity by the church and they only did this because the church kept up the chatter, Queerty, you should read the actual letter you posted it bascially says all that.

    Humm…I got the feeling that Westboro did this to themselves to gain more attention. In a way to make themselves look like a victim.

    This was done by a member of Project Chanology or one of its offshoots, not Anonymous proper. The pre-Chanology Anonymii wouldn’t have used the “expect us” line, it was created specifically for the Scientologists.

    At what point with the endless repetition of the WBC’s brokeass poo-flinging cease being worthy of coverage?

    They’re crazy. Yes. We got it.

    What the media doesn’t seem to understand is that the WBC is fueled by a relentless, unslakable appetite for media attention. So why indulge them?

    Starve the beast, Queerty. Please?

    At least consider it.

    Whatever, As of 10:34 PST, the Westburo Baptist Church’s web site in not responding – either down or overloaded. Both “whois”
    and traceroute indicate that the Phelps freaks are using an ISP named COX (no doubt pronounced the same as slang for part of the male anatomy). Is this choice perchance a Freudian slip?

    PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.

    Cox Communications Inc. NETBLK-COX-ATLANTA-10 (NET-70-160-0-0-1) –

    The idea that the homophobic Westburo Baptist Church makes its Internet presence known via COX Communications is hilarious!

    The site isn’t down. People are just hungry for the word of God. Like, really hungry. Over 9000 times hungry.
