@KuKluxKlanUSA and @YourKKKCentral were taken over by the "hacktivist" group Anonymous in an operation called #OpKKK. Anonymous is reacting to the KKK stand on protests in the racially torn town of Ferguson, Missouri, where the historically racist organization had announced it would use "lethal force" against the protesters. (Lethal force by police is what first sparked the powder keg that is Ferguson, with a cop fatally shooting an unarmed teen.)
The website ZDNet also reports having "received an unconfirmed statement that Anonymous has compromised KKK member email accounts, and a phone harassment campaign is being conducted on KKK members." KKK head Frank Ancona was interviewed on MSNBC last week, where he confirmed that the statements about "lethal force" weren't issued by some rogue faction of the KKK but were, in fact, backed up by the organization.
