Last week a “hactivist” group called “We Are Anonymous” revealed that they have infiltrated various KKK social media and that they plan to disclose the names, phone numbers and addresses of senators, mayors and many other officials who are secretly apart of the hate group.
Well it looks like the hackers made good on their promise and are now tweeting names as we speak and vow to release as many as 1,000 names on the anniversary of the Ferguson protests.
So far these are the names that have already been released:
#OperationKKK started at the brink of the Ferguson protests last year and as we’re approaching the one year anniversary of the day that Darren Wilson was not indicted for the murder of Michael Brown, Anonymous broke down their reasons for the busting out the hooded scoundrels.
“You made a clear and ever present enemy of Anonymous when you threatened the lives of protesters and the men and women representing Anonymous on the ground in Ferguson, Missouri in November of 2014. You continue to make threats to anons you believe you have identified, journalists, anyone in the public that speaks out against your behavior. Your threats and intimidation are unprovoked, unwanted and will not be tolerated. Enough is enough. You once told Anonymous that we awakened a sleeping giant within you. We are here to remind you once again – you summoned an unslayable dragon. Anonymous is an idea. This fight will go on as long as it has to.”
If any of this comes as a surprise to you, check out their full statement here!
Now, I don’t know about you, but I am here, for these hackers! It’s a new day and age! The tolerance for racism is at an all-time low and more people are being educated on the systems that are currently working against us. Sometimes, it takes radical action to inspire change in other people.
On a side note though, why has no one hacked Sallie Mae?!?!?
