Hackers Plan to Reveal Identities of 1,000 Down Low KKK Members
“The original Operation KKK, or #OpKKK, was launched in November of 2014 when Anonymous reportedly hacked KKK Twitter accounts, exposed Klan members’ identities, and may have even caused some Klan members to leave the hate group, according to International Business Times.
“That original feud between the KKK and Anonymous jumped off when the Klan said it would “use lethal force” against protesters in Ferguson.
“The group identifying itself as Anonymous released a new statement this week saying it was going after the KKK once again.
‘Ku Klux Klan, We never stopped watching you. We know who you are. We know the dangerous extent to which you will go to cover your asses. Originally, we did not attack you for your beliefs as we fight for freedom of speech. We attacked you due to your threats to use lethal force in the Ferguson protests. We took this grudge between us rather seriously. You continue to threaten anons and others. We never said we would only strike once.
The message from Operation KKK stressed that the attacks by Anonymous have nothing to do with the KKK’s hateful beliefs, but “because of what you do to our brothers and sisters” when terrorizing them into not taking advantage of their own right to free speech.
“‘After closely observing so many of you for so very long, we feel confident that applying transparency to your organizational cells is the right, just, appropriate and only course of action. You are abhorrent. Criminal. You are more than extremists. You are more than a hate group. You operate much more like terrorists and you should be recognized as such. You are terrorists that hide your identities beneath sheets and infiltrate society on every level. The privacy of the Ku Klux Klan no longer exists in cyberspace. You’ve had blood on your hands for nearly 200 years.’
“Last week, Operation KKK released a statement saying it would also shut down any website that promoted the KKK, saying “you messed with our family and now we will mess with yours…"”
