As we recently reported, the hacktivist group Anonymous has declared all out war on the Ku Klux Klan, vowing to expose those members who have infiltrated police departments and government.
Now, on the one-year anniversary of #OpKKK, Anonymous has begun publishing the personal details of members of the KKK as part of its campaign of cyber warfare against the white supremacist hate group.
Just days ago, Anonymous promised that by the middle of November, there would be 1,000 members of the KKK unmasked as part of #OpKKK.
Anonymous made this pledge after coming into possession of the private information through a Twitter account that was hacked.
Anonymous has stated that the list below is only the first small list of politicians to be revealed, published in four separate listings on text-sharing website Pastebin.
It seems that phone numbers of KKK members are on the internet. https://t.co/XFmxjIQKQb

The KKK has promised counter protests against Anonymous on the worldwide, annual “Million Mask March” on November 5th.
Anonymous made an official statement related to the hack and doxxing of the KKK, which says:
“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.”
Do you agree with what Anonymous is doing?
