EPcoH8jF[su_right_ad]Yesterday afternoon, Anonymous began “doxxing” (exposing the un-hooded identities of) members of the Ku Klux Klan in the greater Saint Louis, Missouri area in response to their online promise to use “lethal force” against individuals who are anticipated to peacefully protest the killing of Michael Brown by a police officer one hundred days ago in the town of Ferguson, protests that are likely to occur after a decision as to whether or not a grand jury issues an indictment against the officer is handed down.

Among those exposed as being members of this particular KKK cell, the self-proclaimed “Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan”, are police officers.

But that appears to have been just the opening act. Today, the notorious Guy-Fawkes-stylin’ hacktivists took over not one but two Twitter accounts controlled by the white supremacist group. Sure looks like a couple of someones are not familiar with the concept of strong passwords!

The Klan had issued several taunts earlier in the day:

Yes, we know from prior history that those troublemaking Anonymouseseses are nothin’ but a bunch of stinkin’ anarchist commie minority-lovin’ poseures… wait… what?

Due to some naughty words that might make racists cry, we also direct you to this NSFW tweet by the new management over at @YourKKKCentral that contains one of our favorite punk rock songs.

The Doc loves it when the bad guys get hood-winked. Sorry, couldn’t resist.[su_csky_ad]

      • tiredoftea November 16th, 2014 at 11:07 pm

        Re read the comment and see what word(s) may have triggered the filter system and change it. Then repost it on a new comment.

      We have to devise some sort of means to measure a “Kincaid Quotient”. Like the Richter scale, I suspect it will be a geometric as opposed to quantized metric…

        Well, it has already gone from 3rd grade writing to eighth grade, so a big improvement!

      Please,elaborate as to “Kincaid”…
      I are not so smart some days.
      (Thanx in advance)
      EDIT:SCHWERP! Two minutes of Googling, and I got it..

      Just think, this can also fit right in, or be combined, with the Dunning–Kruger effect. Wow, that hurts my senses!

    • R.J. Carter November 17th, 2014 at 9:21 am

      Technically it’s the Flesch–Kincaid, or F-K, level, right?

      Personally, I think we’ll see an increase in the Flesch-Unger-Carlton-Kincaid levels.

    Really, the KKK should never have used any computer technology. They simply don’t comprehend how vulnerable it makes them.

    But I’m glad they did! 😀

      in KlanLand a “ping” is a golf club.

    • joe barry November 17th, 2014 at 5:35 am

      Yes, technology can be compromised, but why would members join an organization like the KKK and post fb and twitter accounts with personal photos, addresses, and family photos on them? If I joined a gang of any kind I sure would not put personal information out where people could get to it.

    I know I should NOT support the computer hacking of Anonymous, I know that, my head tells me that, hacking is wrong. However my heart is singing. It is singing away.
