ISIS Hijacks California Earthquake Hashtags To Post Threats On Twitter

ISIS supporters hijacked California earthquake hashtags on Twitter to presumably garner a larger audience for threatening posts. Popular earthquakes hashtags such as #napaearthquake and #sfearthquake were filled with graphic images and terrorism threats against America. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, northern California experienced a 6.1 magnitude earthquake on Sunday.

Many of the California earthquake hashtag posts by ISIS sympathizers featured images of journalist James Foley and dead United States soldiers. The Twitter posts also accused Americans of being guilty of war crimes and torture. “WE WILL KILL YOU WHEREVER WE FIND YOU,” one ISIS California earthquake hashtag labeled post read.

The hijacked hashtags tweets also posed threats that ISIS would executed Steven Sotloff, another American journalist, if President Barack Obama did not leave Iraq immediately. As bestselling author William R. Forsthen’s new book, Day of Wrath, indicates, an ISIS attack on American soil would horrific. Texas Governor Rick Perry has long warned that the lack of a secure border with Mexico has left the United States vulnerable to terrorism attacks. Border Patrol statistics indicate that individuals from the Middle East and Africa have crossed into America, so captured by agents – but likely not all.

Governor Perry had this to say about ISIS crossing the Texas border:

“I think there is the obvious great concern that because of the condition of the border, from the standpoint of it not being secure and us not knowing who is penetrating across, that individuals from ISIS or other terrorist states could be entering the country. And I think it is a very real possibility that they may have already used that entry point. We have no clear evidence of that, but your common sense tells you, when we see the number of criminal activities that have occurred — I’m talking about the assaults, the rapes, the murders — by individuals who have come into this country illegally over the last five years, the idea that they would not be looking at and managing any of those types of attacks from that region is not a good place to be.”
