Anonymous has found another use for the hacked Ku Klux Klan Twitter account: the publication of Traditionalist Knights of the KKK leader Frank Ancona’s personal and financial information, as well as the addresses and phone members of numerous people they have identified as being members of the Klan who threatened protesters with “lethal force.”
The pastebin seems to contain Ancona’s credit card information, name, address, social security number, and debit card pin numbers, as well as those of his wife Malissa Ancona. The second document contains Ancona’s e-mails, associated accounts such as PayPal, a list of his online presences, tax information, educational background, a as well as information belonging to Ancona’s supporters, administrators of Klan sites, and members of the Ku Klux Klan who have been “outed” through the hacktivists’ efforts.
Anonymous has dutifully opposed the KKK’s involvement in Ferguson, removing the hoods from Klan members, revealing their presence at rallies supporting Officer Darren Wilson, and generally disrupting the lives of members of the hate group.
Anonymous’ efforts are getting to the Klan leader. Recently, he declared open season on anyone wearing a Guy Fawkes mask.
“Its deer hunting season here in southern Missouri, it’s really easy to see how a hunter could mistake someone wearing one of those gay anonymous masks for the hind-end of a whitetail deer. Boom!!! Oops sorry it was an accident,” a message sent by Ancona said, according to Anonymous.
“You pathetic n*gger lovers are going down, we’re NOT HIDING. WE’RE NOT ASHAMED OF WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE REPRESENT. THE INVISIBLE EMPIRE CANNOT AND WILL NOT BE OVERTHROWN,” read another message. “We will hunt you down and tear those masks from your face. You’ll be strung up next to the chimps. On display for the whole world to see. The Klan is to be feared, not threatened.”
However, it is the Klan that is living inf ear, judging from recent warning on the part of a KKK group that members should not disclose their affiliations on social media for fear of discovery.
