Anonymous hackers shut down KKK website: ‘Their form of beliefs is monolithic and evil’

Hackers associated with the Anonymous collective shut down the official Ku Klux Klan website to combat the group’s “blunt racism.”

The hacker collective has been targeting the white supremacist group for months with coordinated attacks against its online promotional activities, reported Digital Trends.

“We believe in free speech but their form of beliefs is monolithic and evil,” one of the hackers said. “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.

Some of those hackers have also been waging an online campaign against Islamic State militants.

As Sen. Bernie Sanders appeared headed for a decisive victory Saturday in the Nevada caucuses, MSNBC host Chris Matthews pondered whether President Donald Trump's re-election might be better for the Democratic establishment than the Vermont senator's multiracial, multigenerational movement taking over the party.

"I'm wondering if Democratic moderates want Bernie Sanders to be President?" said Matthews. "Maybe that's too exciting a question to raise. Do they want Bernie to take over the Democratic Party in perpetuity? Maybe they'd rather wait 4 years and put in a Democrat that they like."
