Lucy, They've Got A Lot Of Explaining to Do!

Gotta love the Hacktivists that are known as "Anonymous"...When you get on their bad side...You're toast....

The Hacktivist group Anonymous has begun publishing the personal details of members of the Ku Klux Klan as its campaign of cyberwar against the white supremacist group escalates.

Anonymous, the amorphous online activist collective, last week promised to reveal the identity of 1,000 members of the KKK after coming into possession of the private information through a compromised Twitter account associated with the group.

The details published on Sunday and Monday are only a small portion of the total information, and include email addresses and phone numbers which the hacktivist group claims belong to members of the KKK. Anonymous hackers have so far published four separate listings on text-sharing website Pastebin, including 57 phone numbers and 23 email addresses.

There has been no verification of the details so far, but Anonymous has vowed to reveal the full identities of up to 1,000 members of the KKK Thursday, Nov. 5 to coincide with the group’s global protest movement, called the Million Mask March. International Business Times has attempted to call several of the numbers on the list, but none have connected so far.

Some official KKK Twitter accounts have reacted angrily to publication of members’ details, with one suggesting the white supremacist group carry out its own rally on Nov. 5 alongside Anonymous' Million Mask March.

Anonymous and the KKK have been battling it out in cyberspace for almost a year, ever since the protests in Ferguson when a local chapter of the Klan weighed into the debate by warning that it would use “lethal force” against anyone protesting on the streets of Ferguson. In response, Anonymous took control of the official Twitter account of the KKK chapter and published details of some members’ identities. The group also claimed evidence of a connection between the Ferguson police and the KKK.  No surprise there...It's Missouri.

In its statement addressed to the members of the KKK, Anonymous didn’t pull any punch in its assessment of the group: “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.”

I've been saying that for years...How is the Klan any different from Al Queda? Tell me?

In case you're wondering just who was named....(And we know you are...) Anonymous names US Senators Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), John Cornyn (R-Tx.), Dan Coats (R-In.) and Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) as members of the KKK. Anonymous also outed several mayors of major US cities, including Madeline Rogero of Knoxville, Tennessee; Jim Gray of Lexington, Kentucky; Paul D. Fraim of Norfolk, Virginia; Kent Guinn of Ocala, Florida; and Tom Henry of Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Thom Tillis, who is listed as a member of the United Northern and Southern Knights of the KKK in Thornton, was North Carolina’s Speaker of the House before being elected to the US Senate in 2014. Tillis was behind the implementation of numerous far-right policies in the Tar Heel State including voter ID laws, public education cuts, restrictions on abortion that were later struck down by federal judges, tax hikes on low-income earners to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy, among others.
John Cornyn, who Anonymous claims is affililiated with the United White Knights of the KKK, is the current Majority Whip, making him one of the most powerful members of the US Senate.

Johnny Isakson is listed as a member of the Original Knight Riders of the KKK. Isakson served as a U.S. Congressman for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District between 1999 and 2005. He currently serves as Georgia’s senior US Senator, and is up for re-election in 2016.

Dan Coats is Indiana’s senior US Senator, and is listed as a member of the United Northern and Southern Knights of the KKK — along with Thom Tillis.

Jim Gray of Lexington, Kentucky, who Anonymous says is a member of the United Northern and Southern Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, is openly gay.(WHOAAAA, I didn't see that one coming.) Gray vehemently denied any ties to the KKK on his official Twitter feed:"I am opposed to everything the KKK stands for. I have no idea where this information came from, but wherever it came from, it is wrong."

He is the only person named so far who has denied his affliation...

I'm betting right now, a lot of folks are sweating under their robes and hoods....Stay Tuned...Anonymous plans on more revelations to come.
