Anonymous Publishes Alleged KKK Member Details
A rogue international network of activists and hacker entities has released the names, phone numbers and email addresses of members who are allegedly part of the Ku Klux Klan, according to the International Business Times.
The group, known as Anonymous, posted the information on Pastebin, a text-sharing website Monday.
A separate post names nine politicians who the group claims is part of the hate-led organization, including four senators and five city mayors.
The list is completely unverified and the official Operation KKK Twitter account has distanced itself from the listing saying: “We won’t release names without due diligence. We discourage the circulation of disinformation and will not promote an unverifiable list of politicians.”
The original tweet has since been deleted by the group.
Anonymous has vowed to reveal the full identities of up to 1,000 members of the KKK on Thursday Nov. 5 to coincide with the group’s global protest movement, the Million Mask March.
A source who spoke with the IB Times said he knew a number of the phone numbers and email names on the list, but claimed they are not members of the KKK. He said that one was a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, a group populated by relatives of Confederate soldiers.
