Anonymous Starts to Reveal KKK Members’ Details with #OpKKK

Anonymous has made good on its threat to expose KKK members on the internet to reveal phone numbers and emails of alleged KKK members.

Activist collective Anonymous has long had a feud with members of the radical Ku Klux Klan. There is a history there. Recently, Anonymous threatened to dox a thousand members of the KKK, unhooding them publicly in cyberspace.

Explaining their actions, Anonymous said:

We are not attacking you (the KKK) because of what you believe in as we fight for freedom of speech, we are attacking you because of what you do to our brothers and sisters.

The KKK often claim to have thousands of members who stay anonymous, ironically, due to the way society sees them. After all, a KKK member ousted as a public school teacher, for example, would make for quite the debacle.

Anonymous, in their most recent attack on the KKK added:

We’ve gained access to yet another one of your KKK Twitter account. Using the info obtained, we will be revealing about 1000 of your klan member identities.

It appears that the activist group have made good on their threat, ahead of schedule with #OpKKK, a long-standing operation that sees the Ku Klux Klan as the chief target.

In a series of postings on their Twitter account, Anonymous has now revealed multiple phone numbers and email addresses of alleged Ku Klux Klan members.

While this isn’t a list of the 1000 KKK members who are due to be revealed this month in commemoration of the Ferguson protests last year, the latest reveal by Anonymous only goes to show that there is more yet to come in Anonymous’ operation to publicly dismantle the KKK.
