A group going by the name of ‘Protester.IO’ is offering a suggestion to all the Trump haters who can’t physically go to Washington, D.C., to crash the inauguration.
The group, organized by Juan Soberanis, is campaigning for people to get online to try to crash the Whitehouse.gov website – and a leading public-relations service was helping to publicize the effort this week.
PR Newswire had posted a “press release” by Protester.IO on Thursday, advertising the campaign to take down the White House website on the day of Trump’s inauguration.
The press release read, “On January 20th, hundreds of thousands of Americans are going to Washington, DC to march in protest of the inauguration of Donald Trump. Millions more around the country will be joining the cause from home. If you can’t make it to Washington DC on inauguration day, you can still participate by occupying whitehouse.gov online.”
The call to action claimed, “We will fight to block Trump’s anti-democratic agenda,” and begs people to “Please join us and stand up against this demagogue who is threatening our democracy and our security.”
The Washington Free Beacon reported that PR Newswire changed the headline of the release a few times, then finally removed the press release from their website entirely “after further evaluation.”
On his Protester.IO website, Soberanis offers instructions on how people can “fight for the cause” by helping take down the White House website “as a show of solidarity for the lives impacted by Trump’s policy agenda.”
He claims this will allow them to “demonstrate the will of the American people.”
