‘Real Klan’ claims they hacked Anonymous Twitter account in ongoing Ferguson feud

Published

on

Members of the Ku Klux Klan claimed yesterday to have taken over a Twitter account used by the member of Anonymous who hacked the KKK’s official Twitter account.

After the KKK threatened to use “lethal force” against protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, the hacker collective known as Anonymous announced Operation KKK (#KKK), in which they took the “hoods off” members of the KKK by posting information about them on Twitter.

The Klan responded by taunting Anonymous via its Twitter account, @KuKluxKlanUSA, writing “Anonymous is nothing but an act. Don’t be worried by this, fellow klansmen. #OpKKK #HoodsON” and “Anonymous is nothing but a bunch of wannabes. They won’t take any action. We will not be brought down by some low-lives behind a screen.”

Anonymous responded by taking over the KKK’s Twitter account and posting the following:

WATCH: John Oliver exposes Trump’s lies about vote-by-mail — and the Fox News ‘cult’ claiming the election is already ‘rigged’

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver's main story Sunday refuted President Donald Trump's latest crusade against vote-by-mail. Trump announced on Twitter that the more people who vote in an election, the more Republicans tend to lose. So, he wants fewer people to have access to the ballot in November, even if people are too scared to go out during the coronavirus crisis.

Oliver called out Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R-MO), who outright told people not to vote if they were too afraid to vote in the local elections next week.

"Well, hold on there," Oliver interjected. "Voting is a right. It has to be easy to understand and accessible to anyone."

John Oliver rips Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for urging ‘order’ from people of color — but never demanding it of police

Published

on

John Oliver opened his Sunday show, shredding Fox News host Tucker Carlson for uring "order" among protesters, but refusing to urge "order" to police and "wannabe police" who can't stop killing people.

on

The Washington, D.C. protests turned violent as the city approached the 11 p.m. curfew the mayor instituted Sunday afternoon.

The policy of D.C. police is that when they are attacked, they advance forward. So, when fireworks were fired, the line of officers began pushing the protesters back further from the White House. Behind the line of police officers also stand a line of National Guard troops that President Donald Trump has demanded stand watch in the city.

Lights that normally shine on the White House have also been turned off, reporters revealed.
