Shortly after I launched Anonymous Operation Ferguson on August 9, 2014 (the very day Michael Brown was murdered) I realized that I was going to need help running such a huge undertaking. As I worked to build the web site and set up the rest of the Op, I also searched for reliable Anons and activists that I could enlist to form a core team. Several of these people wish to remain anonymous, but they were and are invaluable to this historic Op. A few such as myself have already made their association with Op Ferguson public. Anon Cop Watch (@AnonCopWatch), who is an activist and Anon in the St. Louis area is one I leaned on heavy during those first frantic weeks. Later, Eric Garner’s daughter Erica (@) honored us by joining the Op Ferguson team and helped man our Twitter feed during some of the most hectic protests on the ground across the USA. At least one Anon, a black woman in Ferguson no less – was a treasured member of our team and a real asset when covering the unrest there for over a year.
The last and latest member to be invited to join the core team running Anonymous Operation Ferguson was an individual called Laurelai Bailey (@StuxnetSource). I asked her to join the team in the weeks before the all important 1st anniversary of Michael Brown’s death for the sole purpose of having her shore up the late night coverage of our Twitter account. It was the only aspect of the Op Ferguson infrastructure that she was given administrative access to.
Approximately three weeks after the 1st anniversary of the launch of Anonymous Operation Ferguson, without any warning, consultation, or discussion with any of the other members of the core Op Ferguson team – Laurelai Bailey seized control of the Twitter account and locked us all out. Since that day she has used the account to spread malicious lies about Op Ferguson, it’s team, and in particular myself – it’s founder. Within days she had alienated most of our closest allies and activists on the ground – and despite her insistence that she intended to surrender this Twitter account which at the time of it’s hijacking had over 77 thousand followers to a “black female activist” – she continues to use it to attack any and all activists and Anons who dare challenge her amoral seizure of the Op Ferguson Twitter account. As we shall explore below, this is not at all surprising given her sordid history in online activism. As of this writing, some 5 thousand people have un-followed the original Op Ferguson twitter account as Laurelai Bailey continues to run it into the ground with her vitriolic hate campaign against anyone she dislikes.
As it turns out, there is more to this person than any of us ever realized. Several activist journalists have gone to great lengths to document this woman’s long and storied career of hate, sabotage and snitching within both the Trans community as well as Anonymous. The evil she has perpetrated, and the trail of people she has horribly victimized – staggers the imagination.
” Laurelai Bailey is a transwoman who’s been in a myriad of drama over the past years, from rising to dominance of SRS and falling horrifically, to ratting out lulzsec to the FBI, to rape scandals and statutory rape.”
“The living embodiment of all that is terrible and dramatic…”
“Laurelai likes to consider herself a social justice advocate, regardless of the paths she has to take to achieve the goal of destroying those opposing her, with her most recent target being the whole of GamerGate. Her relatively recent idea of how to win over the GGers? Host her own CP (child porn) forum on 8chan, and then as soon as it’s created, shoot the link to a journalist in Canada to report on how Gamergate knowingly affiliates itself with child pornography.”
“Funnily enough the journalist she sent the link to got put under investigation by the Canadian government for CP (child porn). Wasn’t just play-pretend, apparently.”
“Laurelai raped a woman and forced her to testify in LL’s defense.”
“Her favorite activity is to use her status as a poor transwoman sex-worker to garner sympathy from advocate groups to cover her tracks. She is damaging to everyone she comes into contact with and is a blight to women, transgender people, sex workers, social justice advocates and whatever other identity she tries to claim. Fuck her in particular for riding in the wake of a teenager’s suicide to try and amplify her harassment of someone she raped.”
“A couple of years ago, I was in a group alongside Laurelai. I stood by as she implicated some college dude for CP (child porn) to his university and the FBI, a life-ruining sentence.”
This is just a small glimpse into the nature and character of the person who now has sole control over the original Op Ferguson twitter account (@OpFerguson). A rapist, saboteur – and FBI informant. It can not be over emphasized how incredibly dangerous this person is. An insane and sociopathic snitch is now in complete control of one of the largest FTP twitter accounts in history.
In the days immediately after Laurelai stole the Op Ferguson twitter account, the remaining core team members met continuously online. It was the consensus that Anonymous Operation Ferguson is much more than just a single Twitter account, no matter how large and famous. We still had the original web site, Top Level Domain Name (www.OperationFerguson.cf), servers and other infrastructure that was painstakingly built in the course of over a year. But more importantly Op Ferguson was us, the people who had worked so hard to build one of the most historic Ops in Anonymous history. The history and legacy (archived on our website) of Anonymous Operation Ferguson was ours, and no creepy psychopathic fed informant could ever steal that from us.
The decision by the core Op Ferguson team was to replace the stolen Twitter account (follow @OpFerguson2015) and to soldier on. For us, it’s not about a single social media account, it’s all about Black Lives Matter and obtaining justice for Mike Brown. This Op, this team – has been here fighting since before they collected Mike’s body from the street. We will survive this hideous act of treachery by this unfathomably evil person and remain steadfast until Michael Brown’s family gets justice and the killing stops. We invite you to join us on this quest and support Anonymous Operation Ferguson and the Black Lives Matter movement. Together we can stop the killing forever.
