No, it is not as complete a list as I had hoped for however, taking down just one at a time of this “Scum of the Earth” is a very good start!
Pardon the ruff talk my friends, please remember that two groups of my ancestors have been abused from this and groups like this group from “First Contact and still today!”
Anonymous KKK ‘leak’ targets the elusive online world of white nationalism
The list does appear to demonstrate — at least, initially — that some of those working on the operation were aware of concerns about the accuracy of their efforts, and that the consequences will be huge for the group if they get it wrong. “We understand this initiative is extremely controversial and we know we will face much criticism for this operation and our work will be heavily scrutinized. We hope this body of work speaks for itself.,” the document states in an introduction to the list.

The hackivist collective Anonymous released a much-anticipated list of people it claims are members or supporters of the Ku Klux Klan on Thursday night.
The group targeted the KKK in the wake of Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Missouri. They disclosed some contact information earlier this week, and promised to unveil the full trove on November 5th, Guy Fawkes Day.
The data dump, posted on Pastebin, began with an impassioned essay detailing
Anonymous’ motives for the release.
“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,” the group said. “The reality is that racism usually does NOT wear a hood but it does permeate our culture on every level. Part of the reason we have taken the hoods off of these individuals is not because of their identities, but because of what their hoods symbolize to us in our broader society.”
Hackers spent 11 months gathering information on the alleged members, the group said, going to great lengths to confirm the identities as best as possible. They used public data and academic records as well as interviews with both experts and some of the KKK members themselves.
“We consider this data dump as a form of resistance against the violence and intimidation tactics leveraged against the public by various members of Ku Klux Klan groups throughout history,” Anonymous said.
