Hackers connected with the the online activist network Anonymous disrupted service on the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) website on Sunday.
Citing the group’s “blunt racism,” one hacktivist associated with the online group Ghost Squad Hackers, which claimed responsibility for the distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack, told HackRead:
“We targeted the KKK due to our hackers being up in their face, we believe in free speech but their form of beliefs is monolithic and evil. We stand for constitutional rights but they want anyone who is not Caucasian removed from earth so we targeted the KKK official website to show love for our boots on the ground and to send a message that all forms of corruption will be fought. We are not fascist but we certainly do not agree with the KKK movement. They are the Fascists and they are the Racists.”
Part of a series of attacks against the KKK, Ghost Squad Hackers began their campaign against the North American hate group in late 2015 through a “data dump,” a release of personal information of hundreds of alleged KKK sympathizers.
As of April 26, the Loyal White Knights of the KKK website remains unavailable.
