‘Anonymous’ Hacker Group Declares Cyber-War Against the Ku Klux Klan Over Ferguson Threats
In a video released Friday evening, the hacker collective known as “Anonymous” declared a cyber-war on the Ku Klux Klan for their actions in the Ferguson, Missouri furor.
Here’s the video:
Here’s the text from the video description:
Greetings world, we are Anonymous
KKK it has came to our unfortunate attention that you have been interfering with Anonymous.
We are not attacking you because of what you believe in as we fight for freedom of speech…
We are attacking you because of what you did to our brothers and sisters at the Ferguson protest on the 12th of November.
Due to your actions we have started Operation KKK. The aim of our operation is nothing more than Cyber Warfare. Anything you upload will be taken down, anything you use to promote the KKK will be shut down.
DDos attacks have already been sent and have infiltrated your servers over the past 2 days… d0x’s have also been launched on leaders of the KKK. All information retrieved will be given to the public.
You messed with our family and now we will mess with yours…
Let the cyber war begin.
We are legion.
We do not forgive
We do not forget
Ku Klux Klan you should have expect us.
And on Twitter, the two accounts have been posting what they allege are KKK members’ identities:

You have started a war you cannot win. We are everywhere and we are always watching. Prepare for systematic dismantling. #OpKKK

I'm not going to link to it, but Anons are currently doxing KKK members in and around Ferguson. —–> #OpKKK

Yeah I have to say as little respect as I have for Anonymous and their foolish, childish support for Ferguson protesters, if they’re attacking the KKK, I’m cool with that.
Apparently the Anons have taken over a KKK Twitter account:

I don’t care who you are, that’s funny.
