The militant online hacking group Anonymous has declared Friday, December 11, to be ISIS Trolling Day, in which the group asks everyone on social media to call out the Islamic State extremists and to mock them in every way imaginable.

The group offers several suggestions in its statement, depending upon what your social media poison of choice is.

On Twitter:

Post mocking photos of Isis using the hashtags #Daesh and #Daeshbags

Post photos of goats while @ing Isis members with captions talking about their wives

Use hashtags that many Isis members use and post mocking photos

Use hashtags Isis members use to expose them as being Daesh members

Call the attention of @ Isis members to all your friends for them to report to Twitter

Use hashtags known for Isis members to use post photos of dead Isis members

Try to get #Daeshbags trending

 

If you’re using Instagram:

Post photos showing you are not afraid of them

Openly call them Daesh

Post photos of captured Isis members and mock them

 

And for Facebook users:

Find Isis accounts and out them to all of your friends, asking them to report the accounts to Facebook

Openly call them Daesh and Deashbags

Spread mocking photos of Isis

 

And finally YouTube:

Make mocking videos of Isis

Spread photos of dead or captured Isis members

Call on other YouTubers to join in to mock and belittle Isis members

Find any Isis accounts and report them

 

A number of memes mocking the militants have been posted by Anonymous and its supporters, including these:

Anonymous began its campaign against the Islamic State, which it refers to as OpIsis, following January’s massacre at the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris.

After the multi-targeted November 13 Paris attack, Anonymous predicted more to come — including in the United States.

In addition to the “ISIS Trolling Day, the group has declared December 11 as an “International Day of Rage,” with demonstrations planned worldwide at the following locations:

* London: Constitution Hill from 6pm-10pm
* Paris: Tuileries Garden from 5pm-9pm
* Madrid: Gran Via from 5pm-10pm
* Cannes: Promenade de la Croisette from 5pm-9pm
* Los Angeles: Los Angeles City Hall from 3pm-9pm
* New York: Central Park from 4pm-8pm
* Seattle: Space Needle from 4pm-9pm
* Mexico City: Alameda Central from 6pm-10pm
* Vancouver: Stanley Park from 3pm-8pm

 

International Business Times reported that the OpIsis campaign has shut down as many as 150 Islamic State websites and hundreds of thousands of its Twitter accounts.
