#OpKKK: Anonymous Officially Starts Dox of Hundreds of Alleged KKK Members

The much publicized and long awaited list of alleged KKK members finds daylight on the fifth of November as Anonymous keeps its word on publicly outing the extremist racist group.

Online activist collective Anonymous has been on a crusade to reveal members of the Ku Klux Klan after taking up the cause during the racially-charged background of last year’s shooting of Michael Brown, a teenager by a police officer Darren Wilson. On November 14, 2014, #OpKKK was born to take on the Ku Klux Klan, which was, at the time, threatening protestors during the Ferguson riots with “lethal force.”

Nearly a year later, Anonymous has now released a list compiled of alleged members of the supremacist group containing names and links to their social media accounts on Facebook and Google+.

The post in the Pastebin dump began by stating:


In going through some of social media accounts listed, there are pictures of swastikas and KKK insignias found, adding credence to the likelihood that the members listed are affiliated with the racist group. However, these profiles show that the members have already publicly revealed their inclinations any may not qualify as being ‘outed.’ For example, a white supremacist named Frazier Glenn Miller is among the list, a man who is accused of killing three people at Jewish centers in Kansas earlier this year and is now facing capital punishment. An excerpt from the dox read:

In this dox list, you will find official members of various KKK groups throughout the United States as well as their closest associates (most are also in other extremist hate groups).

After posting the initial tweet containing the link for the dox, the “Operation KKK” revealed that they had redacted some names from the list for “further investigation.” The following tweet came an hour after the original reveal with the Pastebin dump that is likely to have been edited.

Anonymous also revealed that the list was compiled from a collective effort of infiltrating social media accounts and interacting with direct sources including overtly interviewing them.

Members often told on themselves to us about their connections with the KKK during various chat conversations we had with klan members and affiliates throughout the course of our operation. You never know who you are talking to on the internet.

It’s important to note that most members among the list are unlikely to have been independently verified so early after the dox. Speaking about the criticism of a public outing and the likelihood of revealing false information – an occurrence which has happened in the past, Anonymous said:


The public release arrived on Guy Fawkes day, November 5th, a day that is traditionally dear and significant to the online hacktivist collective while millions of Anonymous supporters around the world still use the Guy Fawkes mask as the symbol for Anonymous.
