#OpKKK: The List Is Fake, Some Other Anon’s Educated Guess

We know, you really thought it was real. We did too.



The internet exploded earlier today once an anonymous tip landed in PasteBin, listing supposed ties between 9 government officials and the KKK, a white supremacist organization historically responsible for the murder, terrorism and systematic oppression of many American citizens based on race, religion, and sexual orientation. Tons of trigger fingers turned to twitter fingers earlier today, urging several known conservative leaders to take their #HoodsOff and face the music.

Hold your horses, it was fake. 

Anonymous, a hacktivist group who have stood opposed and determined to fight against issues like Sandra Bland’s death ruling, police brutality, and even scientology, claims they were not the anonymous hands behind the list of 1000.

Turns out the dudes behind this anonymous claim just had (sorta impressive) educated guesses. US Senators on the list included Thom Tillis (R-NC), John Cornyn (R-TX.), Dan Coats (R-IN) and Johnny Isakson (R-GA). Many took the list quickly as fact and holy grail, posting all over Facebook timelines and Twitter dashboards. Anonymous (the actual folks) claims the real list will be in our hands on November 5th.
Anonymous opposed the list in a series of tweets:
