#OpFacebook, a concocted Anonymous operation which threatens to bring down Facebook, has drawn the anger of uptight and gullible Facebook users everywhere. This threat is reminiscent of those placed against Westboro Baptist this February. It appears this is yet another infiltration psy-op from th3j35t3r.
By manufacturing false operations like these, th3j35t3r undermines Anonymous and forces ever-increasing divergence from the core ideal of Anonymity. If anyone can be Anonymous, certainly those who want to destroy Anonymous will also use the name to cleverly lead the collective towards destruction. This forces leaderfags and namefags to chastise these “fake” operations in order to keep Anonymous “on track”.
However, baseless threats intended to incite fear are business as usual for Anonymous. The news media has picked up on #OpFacebook because it fits the pattern of aimless vitriol which is a benchmark of past Anonymous operations. Yet Anonymous has no one to blame but themselves. #OpFacebook is just so easy to believe.
