Anonymous Finally Released Full KKK List

Is there a way to confirm this other than kids throwing some false names out for a laugh?

I don't really even get the purpose behind this. I mean, if they published a list of high powered execs that were associated with the KKK it would be one thing, but this list is all people who outwardly state they are racist. I doubt they even really care. It likely will get them more publicity than they have ever had and actually drive more people to contact and join them.

A fine thing for a group to "expose" the Invisible Empire when they themselves hide behind anonymity.

So was there anybody interesting on the list ... or was it composed strictly of Bubbas from Podunk Junction ... or people at Mizzou creating a climate of oppression?

Forgive me if I disagree, but I don't see the value in this release. If the KKK was still a group of people that committed acts of violence consistently in the US, I would be interested in exposing their ranks. But the KKK is not that group anymore.
Sure, there may be isolated incidents here and there connected with members, but it's not a widespread problem from what I understand.
I believe people have the right to group together for a common cause under the first amendment; whether it's to complain about blacks and Jews, or to fight for the pro-life agenda. When they take their actions to an extreme, violate another person's constitutional rights or act-out violently, then we have an issue.
As of now the KKK is a bunch of misguided idiots that talk....and that's about it.
If ISIS toned it down a bit and only beheaded a few people every year and only carried out bomb plots every few years or so like the KKK currently does, would you not consider them terrorists anymore?
The only reason they aren't as "successful" as ISIS is because of our government and society.
Cutting back on the violence a bit doesn't suddenly make you not a terrorist group.
