It's not hard to admire and respect Anonymous when they seek to destroy the scum of the earth. In a non-violent way, they often target those who are rarely challenged, due to others fearing retaliation. In this case, Anonymous has set its sites on shutting down the KKK/Ku Klux Klan. In the past year, Anonymous has become more aggressive and attacked KKK's main Twitter account, publishing personal information of members from TALKKK, causing some members to leave. Bye, Felicia.

In a statement released last week, Anonymous said they respect the First Amendment. The attack is for different reason:

"We are not attacking you because of what you believe in, as we fight for freedom of speech. We are attacking you because of what you do to our brothers and sisters.
In Anonymous's "Operation KKK," they now plan to release 1,000 identities from the hate group. It would seem exposing members of this malicious, racist, and sometimes murderous gang would have taken place decades ago. But then, we didn't have the same internet/social media tools we have today. KKK is one of the most vicious groups in America. To give you an idea of how powerful they can be in influencing the historical course of this country, here is an example:
Klan violence worked to suppress black voting, and campaign seasons were deadly. More than 2,000 persons were killed, wounded and otherwise injured in Louisiana within a few weeks prior to the Presidential election of November 1868. Although St. Landry Parish had a registered Republican majority of 1,071, after the murders, no Republicans voted in the fall elections. White Democrats cast the full vote of the parish for President Grant's opponent.
On the other hand ... Anonymous, a "leaderless, idea/entity," launched Operation Darknet in October 2011. They targeted a child pornography site, called Lolita City, releasing 1,589 usernames from the site in Anonymous's OpDarknetV2. This was just one of many of the Operations from a pretty massive and impressive list.

Anonymous verses KKK - I choose Door #1, Monty.
