As the one-year anniversary of the unrest in Ferguson approaches, Anonymous members have once again launched an attack on the KKK.
Anonymous tweeted their warning on Tuesday, promising to out at least 1,000 members of the White supremacy organization. Last year, the hacktivists created #OpKKK, known as “Operation Ku Klux Klan,” during which they took over the social accounts of the group’s members.
The KKK incurred Anonymous’ wrath last year, when they threatened to use lethal force against protesters after a grand jury failed to indict former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown.
Anonymous released a press release on Tuesday along with the warning tweets.
The Huffington Post reports:
“Ku Klux Klan, we never stopped watching you,” the statement reads. “We know who you are … We never said we would only strike once … 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 more than extremists. You are more than a hate group. You operate much more like terrorists and you should be recognized as such. You are terrorists that hide your identities beneath sheets and infiltrate society on every level.”
They also assured followers that attacks on the KKK would not be violent.
The de-hooding of 1,000 members could reveal up to 20 percent of the group. CNN reports there are an estimated 3,000 to 5,000 active members.
Just last month, residents in Rutherford, NJ were surprised to see recruitment flyers from the KKK in their diverse neighborhood.
