The project to hack the KKK websites was motivated by the Klan members who threatened protesters in Ferguson.
The hacktivist collective Anonymous has been promising to hack KKK websites and release the information they find to the public.
The process has been arduous, as member cells are clandestine, but Anonymous has been successful.
Through geolocation, each IP address has been tied to an individual computer, which has a home address and a name affiliated with that address. Anonymous has also tied social media accounts to each of these IP addresses, some of which have left significant social media footprints. The Anonymous member said the IP addresses are verified, as a masked IP address is easily differentiated from an actual IP address — this means the individuals listed are real, active, participating members of the KKK and affiliated racist groups, according to Anonymous. Anonymous also obtained communication records of members by dumping the contents of KKK forum discussions and direct messages via social media.
The goal of the name release is to facilitate conversation, so says Anonymous. Will this name dump create more civil unrest? Will it put people and lives in jeopardy? One can only wait and see.
“We need to make room for important, blunt, honest, public, productive conversation. Violent bigotry IS a problem in the United States. This is not a colorblind society,” Anonymous’ #OpKKK organizers wrote in an official statement. “Part of the reason we have taken the hoods off of these individuals is not because of their identities, but because of what their hoods symbolize to us in our broader society.”
So, the organization, started by Democrats have had their faces exposed. What will America do with this information?
