The hacktivist group Anonymous shut down a website rallying against the show "All-American Muslim," as political protest shifts to the online arena.
A message, reportedly from Anonymous, was put up in place of the Florida Family Association's homepage, stating the site "destroys free speech." The hackers also exposed the email and IP addresses of more than 30 FFA newsletter subscribers and donors and listed credit card information for a dozen more.
A hacker identified as "ihazCAnNONz" on Twitter took responsibility for the attack, tweeting the FFA's promotion of "hatred, bigotry and fear mongering toward gays, lesbians and most recently Muslim Americans" as the reason behind it.
