Anonymous hacktivists have published a pastebin of KKK Missouri Imperial Wizard Frank Ancona, making public knowledge of his most private information, including credit card numbers. There, you can find his address, phone number, social security number, and known relations – you name it, Anonymous is giving you the scoop. It’s all been uploaded to pastebin.com.
The pastebin is the latest step in the escalation of an ongoing feud with the racist hate group over their threats and participation in heightening racial tensions in Ferguson, Missouri over the murder of Michael Brown last August by Officer Darren Wilson.
Members of the anarchistic, loose connective of people who self-identify as “Anonymous” have gone back and forth with the Klan in recent weeks after the hooded group threatened violence, even death against protestors, as the nation crept ever-toward the looming grand jury failure to indict Officer Wilson for cold-blooded murder of an unarmed teenager. The feud picked up pace when Anonymous hacked in and took over the Klan’s Twitter pages, and then took a lively turn when the Klan was able to somehow regain at least one of their Twitter pages.
And this pastebin is the latest sensational development in the masks versus the hoods.
It was through one of those Klan Twitter accounts infiltrated by Anonymous that hacktivists announced and released the pastebin on Ancona Wednesday.
Anonymous tweeted through the @KuKluxKlanUSA account:
We’ll just leave this here.
The tweet also included two documents showcasing Ancona’s private information, as well as that of some of his supposed family, including tax records. And it’s as easy as a retweet to share the information, yourself.

One of the documents also closes with the signature Anonymous taglines:
We Are Anonymous. We Are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. You should have expected us KKK.
In another tweet, Anonymous posted a message Nov. 17 detailing #OpKKK (#HoodsOff)”:

The tweet stated, in part:
The Ku Klux Klan is a terrorist group. The blood of thousands of human beings are on the hands of Klansmen. In most of Anonymous’ member’s eyes, the KKK no longer has the right to express their racist, bigoted opinions.
Ancona dismissed Anonymous’ warnings, initially, stating:
Sounds to me like a bunch of kids in their mom’s basement whacking off.
More recently, however, Ancona was a bit more humble in an interview with an alleged member of Anonymous, stating that they “just wanted to show support for Darren Wilson.” On camera, Ancona also tried to tone down the violent talk emanating from the Klan as of late. He stated:
We’ve got people who live there who are going to defend their homes and their businesses, but we’re not sending an army to Ferguson to come down there and start a bunch of trouble. In fact, no one’s even going to know we’re there. I mean, we don’t hide.
No one will know you’re there, but you don’t hide, but you wear hoods to cloak your faces? Sorry, I’m a bit confused. Which is it, again?
Well, fortunately, there is no need to wonder about what Ancona meant too much. Anonymous has already ensured he won’t have anywhere to hide anytime soon.
