The hacktivist group Anonymous just made good on their promise to release a huge list of politicians and police officers involved with the Ku Klux Klan on November 5th.
Members of Anonymous just released what they called a list of Ku Klux Klan members and sympathizers on Thursday.
As with most Anonymous doxxings and other attacks the group uploaded the results on Pastebin.
What they gave us is a huge list containing hundreds of names and aliases.
This list comes three days after another Anonymous group autonomously posting a separate list that containing the names of several current lawmakers, like Senators Dan Coats (R-IN), John Cornyn (R-TX), John Hardy Isakson (R-GA), and Thom Tillis (R-NC).
Both releases seem to be towards the same end, but are from different groups within the decentralized hacktivist group.

We hope Operation KKK will, in part, spark a bit of constructive dialogue about race, racism, racial terror and freedom of expression, across group lines. Public discourse about these topics can be honest, messy, snarky, offensive, humbling, infuriating, productive, and serious all at once. The reality is that racism usually does NOT wear a hood but it does permeate our culture on every level.

By 5:15 p.m. EST, the #OpKKK Twitter feed said that they have removed several names from the list, until there can be “further investigation.”
“We would rather have a smaller, accurate list that we are comfortable with,” the #OpKKK twitter feed said.
