The international group of hacktivists known as Anonymous, is making good on their plan to unveil Klu Klux Klan members.
Anonymous reported last week, that they would disclose the identity of 1,000 KKK members. It seems private information, from a compromised Twitter account associated the white supremacists group ended up in the possession of this network of activists’ hands.
A few days ago, information was published that disclosed the addresses, emails, and phone numbers, that claimed to belong to members of the KKK . Though reports claim Anonymous was behind this early unveiling — it’s seems not.
The Pastebin links sent to us regarding #OpKKK were sent to us by Anonymous individuals. The actual release for Operation KKK will be 5 Nov.

Anonymous vowed that the identities of 1,000 KKK members will be revealed Thursday. The group’s global protest movement, set for Nov 5, is known as the “Million Mask March.” Though the International Business Times has made several attempts to reach out to several of the numbers on the list, none have connected so far.
Apparently the leak of information regarding members’ details is causing some KKK members to get their pillow cases in a bunch. Some Twitter accounts are considering carrying out their own rally Nov. 5 to coincide with Anonymous’ Million Mask March.
So, they are going to protest the outing…by outing themselves?
Umm… you do that.
Anonymous addressed the KKK group and called them how they see them.
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.
Anonymous has proven to be a force to be reckoned with. These pillow case wearing terrorists need to be unveiled. They are cowards hiding behind masks, badges, and even political positions in order to carry out hate crimes, thinking they can get away with it.
